Joseph Ogle

Sad Casualty -Mr. Joseph Ogle, a citizen of Dresden in this county, was so seriously injured by the falling of the timbers of a building on Saturday last, as to cause his death in three hours after. The deceased, with others, was engaged in removing the building known as the "Furnace Stable," when owing to the giving or slipping of some of the timbers, a portion fell upon, crushing, and lacerating him in a horrid manner.

He leaves a large family and numerous connections and friends to mourn his sudden demise. The funeral procession on Sabbath _est; it is said was the largest ever known in the place.
