      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, July 4, 1872 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - A Sad Accident - Boy Drowned - On Wednesday afternoon of last week an accident occurred which threw a deep gloom over the youth of our village and carried sorrow to the hearts of a loving mother and relatives. A boy named Henry Eckel, in company with two or three associates were at the “Black Hole,” in Salmon River. He was sailing about in a small boat, when by some means he lost his balance, plunged into the water and disappeared. His companions waited a few moments for him to come to the surface, but finding no trace of him, ran for assistance. Rev. M. V. Wilson and Mr. Ansel Brown were soon there and procuring another boat floated along until they saw the body upon the bottom. Another party arrived at the same moment, and one of them, George Manwaring, with commendable courage and activity, threw off his coat and plunging in, soon drew the body to the surface. The agonized mother was on the shore to receive her son, and she became almost frantic with grief. The deceased was about 14 years of age.
