1863 - Drowning

A son of Mr. George Pinnco, a soldier in the 37th regiment, whose family live in the cottage on the grounds of David Leavitt, Esq., of Gt. Barrington, was drowned in the pond on the same promises, on Saturday afternoon the 16th inst. Mrs. Pinnco had not missed the child five minutes, when it was brought in a corpse. He was discovered by a passer-by, who at first thought some clothes had blown from a line, and, taking a stick, attempted to recover them, and found it was the dead body of the child. The water was only eighteen inches deep where he was found.
