Wagon Drives Over Little Sledge Boy, Seems Okay, NC, 1882


October 5, 1882 (The Commonwealth, a newspaper of Scotland Neck, NC, 3rd page, 3rd column)


A little son of Mr. Sledge fell off a heavily loaded wagon at Moseley’s mill and the wheels passed over his abdomen. Fortunately it was on a pile of saw dust else it would have crushed him. Dr. Collins was summoned instantly, but could not well tell whether he was injured internally. Mr. S. remained in town over night, fearing a more serious turn, but on the morrow the little fellow seemed to be all right, eating a hearty breakfast.
