TWO DROWNED
Colored Preacher and His Grand
child Lose Their Lives
Swept Into the Swollen Waters
7 of Little River Fri
day Morning
Two lives were lost in the muddy
waters of Little River just before
noon Friday morning
The river was swollen by the
heavy rains and the current was
swift and dangerous
Rev Peter Bronaugh a vener
able colored preacher with his lit
tle grandson John Littlepage a
child of four years of age drove
down in a buggy to water his horse
at the foot of Second street The
horse drank and the buggy had
Jbeen turned round to leave the river
but the bank was steep and mudd
and the horse began to back and
slip backward into the dangerous
stream The old man tried to
whip the animal up the bank but
to no purpose and the vehicle was
backed into the water and caught
by the current In a moment it
was overturned and man and child
were struggling in the water The
old man was feeble and helpless
and after a few cries for help he
disappeared from view The child
was carried swiftly idown the
stream for nearly 500 yards most
of the time being on top of the water
Just below the bridge Chief of Po
lice E H Armstrong waded in
and attempted to rescue the boy
but he sank before the brave officer
could reach him The horse was
carried still further being able to
reach the bottom occasionally with
his hind feet and finally pulled
himself out at a shallow place near
the bend in the river
The double tragedy was wit
nessed by many people who re
mained on the banks powerless to
save the unfortunates
Rev Peter Bronaugh rfas one of
the oldest colored ministers in the
county He was between 75 and
80 years of age and had been a
minister for 50 years and was still
pastor of one or two churches out
of town
The body of the old man was
found at 7 oclock Sunday morning
lodged in a drift caused by the over
hanging boughs of a tree opposite
the I C turntable about 600 yards
below the scene of the drowning
The river had been dragged con
stantly and systematically for near
two days The body was lodged
head downwards and the receding
water brought the feet to view
Up to yesterday no trace had
been found of the little boy His
body may never be recovered
Another Case 25 Years Ago
In July 1874 another drowning
very similar occurred not far from
the same place
Rich Lindsay an old negro man
who worked about Hipkins livery
stable drove into the swollen
stream to water a horse In the
buggj were two of his grandsons
The swift current caught the buggy
and turned it over and
and one of the boys were
the old man
drowned
The other cjung to the horses mane
until they passed under the old
wooden bridge and W L Garth
jumped into the water nd saved
both the bovand the horse assist
ed by a colored man named Bill
Jones The bodies were found
some distance down the river when
the water fell
Charges Abandonment

aration from his wife Lizzie To
