A deck hand was lost off the Minnesota Bell Tuesday morning last, when between Clayton City and this place. He was engaged in transfering wood from a Flat boat in tow, to the steamer while in motion, and fell between the two, when he was immediately drawn under by the wheel. His body was not recovered and it is supposed he was killed by the wheel striking him.

~Weekly North Iowa Times, Wednesday, June 30, 1858


Note: He was not named & found no further mention of this incident. The death notice has been posted just in case someone has knowledge of his name.
