(Note: Rev. Hovey married Mary Hadden, the widow of Miles Frost of Thurman and moved to Hagadorn Mills with her and her two orphaned granddaughters, never to be heard from again.)
Fred Reynolds of North Thurman, while skidding wood Dec. 8, 1911, was hit by a pole just above the small of his back and has since been so lame and sore that he could hardly get around. He is improving very slowly.
