A Rawdon Lady Killed In A Carriage Accident At Newcastle

    We deeply regret to record that the wife of the Rev. Thos. Pottenger of Cragg Wood, Rawdon, was killed in an accident on Thursday week. 

    In company with some other ladies, Mrs Pottenger was riding in a wagonette of Mrs J C Angus of Newcastle when from some cause the horse took fright and on turning a corner the carriage was upset and all the ladies were thrown out with much force.

Mrs Pottenger survived until Sunday only.
