Obituary

A sad accident resulted in the death of Henry Jackson Friday afternoon. He had started to drive to Randolph in his cutter, drawn by a pair of horses. At one of the Brown crossings, half a mile south of this station, he was struck by the southbound express train and hurled a distance of 75 feet, falling in the highway. Death was instantaneous. The body was not bruised a particle. The crossing is an open one and the train could be seen for a distance of 1,200 feet. Mr. Jackson must have miscalculated. He had nearly got across, the engine striking the rear of the sleigh and demolishing it, but the horses escaped. The funeral was held Monday, Rev. M. H. Ryan of Middlesex officiating. The remains were taken to Randolph and placed in the tomb. Later, they will be interred in New Haven, Vt. Mr. Jackson was 65 years of age and had kept the hotel here for three years, coming from Granville. He leaves a wife and four children, Charles, Sarah, Edmund and William.
