Death Notice

"Stevens Point Journal"
21 Aug 1880

Killed by Lightning

During the prevalence of a light thunderstorm, which passed over the town of Sharon at about 4 o'clock Wednesday morning, a Polander named Peter Konopotski was struck by lightning and instantly killed. He had been up all night with some member of his family who was sick and was just going to bed, when the bolt came through the window knocking one pane of glass out and killing the unfortunate man instantly. Except as here stated, nothing in or about the house was injured, making it one of the most curious freaks of lightning of which we ever heard.
