Edward was the son of Elwin Seelye of Dunham’s Bay and the body was brought there for burial in the private cemetery on the Seelye place beside the remains of his grandfather and sister, Allegra Seelye, who was killed by lightening several years ago while a student at Columbia University.

Decision rendered

In the case of the Town of Queensbury against the City of Glens Falls, the Court of Appeals has made a decision which affirms a judgment for $4,567 on March 11, 1911. The city will be compelled to pay a portion of the cost of construction of the Glens Falls - Lake George and the Glens Falls - Hudson Falls state highways because the roads were built while Glens Falls was a village and a part of the Town of Queensbury.

Bazaar accident

While Miss Grace Culver of Friend’s Lake was driving home from Loon Lake Friday night, Nov. 1, 1912 and was coming through Jacob Vetter’s woods, one side of the thills came out of its clip allowing them drop down on the horse’s heels. The horse was frightened and broke into a run.

Lynwood Carpenter, who was riding with Miss Culver, tried to help stop the animal, but the wagon was tipped over and both were thrown out. Miss Culver pluckily clung to the reins and was dragged some distance, but seeing her danger finally let go. The horse got loose from the wagon and was stopped near Addison Kingsley’s place. Miss Culver was considerably bruised, but suffered no serious injury. Young Carpenter was only slightly bruised and the horse was not hurt.
