Notes: Mrs. Pemberton went to the "spring" or shallow well - for a bucket of water. While drawing, she lost her "balance" and fell into the water head first, in which posititon she remained sometime, until rescued by her son. From this unnatural bath she took severe cold - culminating in congestive chills, finally causing death as above stated.

No 1. (Lewis Lambertson) - Ulceration of the tonsils. Was shot by the Indians in 1870. The ball penetrated the left lung. It was extracted. He afterward suffered pain and spit blood at intervals since he was shot. Previous he was strong and healthy.

James McAuliff, John Sullivan, John McDonald were miners employed at the Tiger Mine, Bradshaw District, Arizona Territory. The hoisting machinery at the shaft becoming in some manner disarranged, these men were precipitated from the bucket on which they were being hoisted to the surface to the bottom of the shaft, a distance of nearly 200 ft and were killed.

David Felloe and William Mozart, also miners, were killed at the same time by the premature explosion of a blast.
