Mrs. Richard Ruff (nee Congdon)
FATAL ACCIDENT. -- On Sunday last, Richard Ruff and wife left Cow Run for a visit to Lowell, in a two horse wagon. When this side of Cow Run, below Guyton's Mill, in the narrows, one of the horses became frightened, and, crowding the other over the steep bank, horses, wagon and occupants were all thrown down the precipice. Mrs. Ruff was instantly killed; Mr. Ruff escaped with slight injuries; the horses were badly hurt, and the wagon wrecked. Mrs. Ruff's maiden name was Congdon, and she formerly lived in Harmar. The wagon fell upon her. She said: "Lift the wagon off from me." It was immediately taken off, but the poor woman was dead. She was some over twenty years of age, and left no children.--Marietta Register. [Gallipolis Journal, (Gallipolis, Oh.) Thursday, July 14, 1870 - Submitted by Kathy McDaniel]
