Overboard

I found this, thankfully, amusing, almost horrible, article in a newspaper search:

newspaper article
Argus and Patriot (Montpelier, Vermont) 08-07-1878, page 3.

Oscar Ebenezer Hatch and his brother Asa Lyon Hatch are the two gentlemen who were doing a spot of fishing, when this accident occurred. Oscar is my 3xgreat grandfather, and the father of Dillon Hatch.

Both of the men were in their 50s at the time. Thankfully, no one was lost or hurt, except for maybe their pride.
