1876 Oddball News

The following two blurbs are blurry so I'm going to provide the text as it was published in The Fowlerville Review in 1876. This is another installment of "oddball local news" I found while going through all of my research for The Fowlerville Chronicles.

A man, whose name we could not learn, while driving on the road about three miles north of this place thought that one of his horses acted rather strange and upon stopping and unhitching, the horse staggered a little out of the road and fell dead.

Rachael Ann Dickison, a noted character who has been preambulating our streets during the "we ma'hours" for some time past, was sentenced on Tuesday under $500 bonds to keep the peace for one year but could not give the bond and was taken to the House of Correction on Wednesday by Deputy Sheriff Head.
