Notes
a. Note:   Wellsboro Gazette of Mar. 3, 1904, p4 has: BODY TORN TO PIECES Frederick W. Eaton, of Lawrenceville, Met With a Terrible Death CAUGHT IN A REVOLVING BELT While at Work in His Father's Grist Mill and His Body Litterally Torn to Pieces --- Husband of a Former Wellsboro Girl An Exemplar, Young Man Frederick W. Eaton, manager of his father's flouring mill at Lawrenceville, met with a terrible death on Tuesday afternoon. About 3 o'clock Mr. Eaton went down in the basement to repair a pump. While at work it is supposed that in some manner his clothing was caught by the belt of the main shaft and he was hurled against the shaft where he was held while his body was litterally pounded to pieces. A few minutes later an employee noticed that the machinery was running irregular, went down to the basement to investigate the trouble. After stopping the engine he turned about and was horrified to discover the mutilated body of Mr. Eaton still wedged in the shaft. The body was removed with considerable difficulty and was torn and bruised in a frightful manner. The head and shoulders were bashed almost to a pulp and presented a sickening sight. The deceased was the husband of Victoria Ludlow Eaton, formerly of Wellsboro, where she lived for many years. Besides his wife he is survived by three small children. He was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs Nataniel Eaton, who also survive him together with two brothers, Leroy C. and William, and one sister, Mrs. ohn Hotchkiss. A correspondent says "Mr. Eaton was a young man of sterling character and his habits were exemplary. He had the respect of all who knew him. He was elected Burgess of this town about a year ago and filled this office with great credit to himself. He was a member of the Methodist Church and leader of hte choir. This entire town and vicinity are in deepest mourning and extend their hartfelt sympathie to the bereavded family."
