Notes

Note NI1303The Descendants of John and Rosannah Swaney compiled by George E. Beckett.
This family history was prepared for the Swaney Family Reunion of 1982.
At harvest time in 1868, John and his sons were operating a horse driven threshing machine in the barn. Rosannah went out to call the men in for lunch. As she stepped over the connecting rod the long dress she was wearing was caught up in the machinery and she was thrown several times against the floor crushing her skull. She clung to life for three days after the accident and died September 2, 1868.
Grand Traverse Herald
4 September 1868
SEVERE AND PROBABLY FATAL ACCIDENT
On Friday last, Mrs. Swaney, wife of Mr. John Swaney, of Old Mission, met with an accident which will doubtless prove fatal. In stepping over the connecting rod of a threshing machine which was running in the barn, her clothes caught and she was swiftly drawn under and carried two or three times around the rod before the machine could be stopped. Her head each time struck the floor with great violence, crushing the skull in fearful manner. She was otherwise severely injured. No hopes are entertained of her recovery. We have the above facts from Dr. Ashton who was called to attend her. Mrs. Swaney is represented by those who know her to be a lady of estimable character, beloved and respected by all.
11 September 1868
Mrs. Swaney, of Old Mission, whom we mentioned last week, as having been severely injured by a threshing machine, survived the accident but a few days. The bereaved family have the sympathies of the entire community.
