Ebert, Frederick (? - 1879)
A man named Frederick Ebert was killed in Sufficool and Huntley’s camp last Monday morning by being crushed between a tree and a load of logs. His death was almost instant, and appears to have been the result of thoughtlessness on his part, and as gross as to almost unaccountable. From Mr. Sufficool we learned that at the time he met his death he was engaged in helping a loaded team over a pitch in the road caused by an old beaver dam, upon the summit of which there was a tree standing close to the track, and against which to all appearances, the load must strike, but which, through some arrangement made in the track to prevent that occurrence, was not the case, but which was not known to him, that being his first trip over the road. In trying to devise some means, apparently, to prevent the load from coming in contact with the tree, he appeared to be unconscious of danger to himself, and was caught between the load and tree, with the result as stated above.
The deceased was a resident of this town, living near the Mound, about four miles northwest of this village. He was an industrious, enterprising citizen and a man universally esteemed by all who knew him. He was about forty years of age and leaves a wife and four small children to feel and mourn his untimely death.
