This letter was written on December 17, 1858 by one of the children (I assume a daughter) to a “Mary” and details the death of Christopher Cranston, Charles Edward Cranston and Josephine Park Cranston’s father and Chris (Doc) Cranston’s grandfather.
He died of internal injuries suffered in a fall from the loft in his barn one morning shortly after breakfast. He was brought into the house, regained consciousness, had bruises and a broken shoulder and seemed to have suffered greatly. The attending doctors who were called to the home “bled him” – to no avail.
