Thriller Thursday - Calvin Percival

DEATH NOTICE FROM THE OCTOBER 27, 1810 "WESTERN SPY":  On Saturday, 20th instant, as two young men were crossing the Ohio, opposite Lawrenceburgh, in a craft loaded with sand, it sunk and they were both unfortunately drowned. Their names were Calvin Percival, second son of Doctor Percival of that town, and Sampson Smith, an active industrious carpenter, formerly resident in this place.
Calvin was the brother of my great-great-great grandfather John Stearns Percival. At the time of his death he was 15 years old.
