1859: January 30,
BURNED -About one o'clock this morning officers Cornell
and Cumpston bearing a woman scream at No. 68 Hamilton avenue,
went into the house and found a woman with her clothes on fire.
They put the flames out, but the woman was so badly burned,
that they thought is best to take her to the L. I. College Hospital.
Her name was Mary Dawson. When she got to the Hospital she told
the officers that her husband set her on fire with intention to kill her.
The officers arrested Mr. Dawson, and he is held for examination,
but the charge made by his wife is not very probable. Mrs. D.
emitted an odor of strong drink, and the stove was red
hot when the officers entered, which presents a more probable
account of the origin of the conflagration of Mr. Dawson.
Her injuries though serious are not considered mortal.
1859: Marie late widow of John Dawson of a short but severe illness in the 50th year of her age.
