Leonora J. Weeks was a resident of the Town

20th century. The scrapbook was photocopied
by Helen Osborne, Town Historian of Windsor
and member of the Old Onaquaga Historical
Society. She gave me a copy of her photocopy.
Most of the clippings are for weddings and fu-
nerals. The obituaries are much different from
today’s lengthy ones which I clip and file from
the newspaper. The typical obituary from the
early 20th century contains only about 20 lines.

in a tragic drowning in the Susquehanna River on July 14, 1908, just below the dam
at Ouaquaga. He was swimming with several other boys and stepped into a deep
hole where there was a strong current. Two friends almost drowned in an attempt
to save him. The third is Griffin S. Hurd, father of Daisy and Thayne and husband of
