February 15, 1760

1760 February 15 (Friday).  Attended the Funeral of Joseph Brigham.  Viewed the Place where the Lad had his Death’s Wound.  He jumped from a Parcel of Hay on the South Scaffold of the Barn, upon the Mow in the Bay, which being hollow underneath by the pulling away Hay for the Cattle; and Hay having been taken away from the Top of the mow, it was become thin, he fell through, and his Head, most probably, Struck against the Ground cil before where the Cattle stood; his Head when his Father came to him being under the Cill, and Blood came out of his Right Ear.  I gave Some Exhortation and Warning there, to Children and Youth.  At night came my son Baldwin from Boston.  He informs me that My Kinsman Winter was marryed last night to My Cousen Mary Langdon, Widow.
