Warrensburgh news briefs

There was not a single death in the town of Warrensburgh in Dec., 1911. The population of the town increased by one citizen as there was one birth reported. There were several marriages.

The windstorm which swept over this locality the night of Dec. 28, 1911 was one of the most violent known here in many a year. It raged all night with unabated fury, but no serious damage was reported. The next day the roads were muddy and than froze and made it so slippery that it was hard to get around. Snow finally came on Dec. 31, 1911, followed by sleet in the evening which put the roads in good condition for driving with light sleighs and cutters.
