1853 - Awful Railroad Accident. FIFTY PERSONS KILLED!
NORWALK (CT) May 6. The 8 o'clock train for New York, ran off the draw-bridge into the river, near this place. One car was completely submerged and two others completely demolished. There has been a terrible loss of life. The excitement is so great that it is impossible to get a list of the killed or injured. The engine went through first, followed by two passengers cars. The 4th passenger car split in two, one half of which was thrown into the river, and the other half caught on the draw.

10 P. M. Thus far, 49 dead bodies have been recovered, and two of the injured have died; 18 others are seriously injured, and three dangerously. Among the lost is the daughter of the Rev. Thomas Griswold.

There are probably ten or more dead bodies in the creek. Most of the bodies recovered were those of physicians who had been attending the medical Convention in this city and were on their way home. The conductor, Mr. Comstock, was in the second car, but escaped with many bruises, but not... Read MORE...

South Norwalk, Conn., Sept. 8 - The express train due here from Boston at 5:20 Saturday evening ran into a Danbury and Norwalk railway commuters' train at the junction in this city.

Special to The New York Times.

NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 27.--Word reached here today of a tornado, which raged in the Norwalk River Valley last night, and did great damage to buildings, orchards, and timber land.

The storm came up from the southwest out of an apparently cloudless sky, and passed to the northeast with terrific force. The villages most affected are West Norwalk, Winnipauk, Silver Mine, Wilton, Cannons, Georgetown, Branchville, Redding, and the country near Danbury. The path varied from fifty to three hundred feet in width, and it was marked with destruction. Trees were uprooted and dropped across highways, buildings were destroyed, and roofs carried away. Witnesses describe it as a dark, foggy cloud, apparently rolling over and over, and filled with leaves, limbs of trees, and other debris.

The residents of the section over which the tornado passed were terror stricken, and many sought refuge in cellars. The wind was preceded by thunder and lightning and jet black ... Read MORE...

NORWALK, June 3. (Special to the Telegram) - Flame shooting high into the air which could be sen(sic) many miles along Long Island sound, totally destroyed the summer home of H. A. Scofield, an official of the Shorehaven Realty Development Co. located on the Sprights Island in Norwalk harbor today. There is but one other house on the island. As far as could be learned there was no one on the island at the time the fire broke out.

Several people in boats left Calf Pasture beach and other points in the harbor and went to the island, but the whole structure was enveloped in flames and there was no posibility of saving it. All the contents were destroyed and the loss is estimated at $9,000.

Mr. Scofield is out of town and could not be reached today. How the fire started is an unsolved mystery.
