March 1 1825 On Saturday last, the body of MR. R. HAMILTON, of Cavanalee, who has been missing for 14 weeks, was found in the river at Sion. It is supposed that he had fallen into the river, on his way home. An inquest was held on the body, who returned a verdict of “Accidental Death.”
June 24 1828 On Wednesday last, MISS ELIZABETH KNOX, daughter of MR. JOHN KNOX, of Cavanalee
July 15 1828 We are sorry to state, that a young man of the name of JAMES SIMMISON, from Edymore, near this town, went into the river at Derry to bathe, on Wednesday last, and not being a swimmer, he was carried away by the tide and drowned. The parents of the young man were in Derry waiting for the sailing of a vessel for America, in which he was to accompany them; what must have been their feelings, when the vessel sailed next day with them, leaving their son still in the river. His body was found on Saturday, a short distance from where he was drowned, and was yesterday interred in the grave-yard of this town. He was a young man of good character, and much respected by those who knew him

November 30 1830 On Friday last, MR. JOSEPH THOMPSON, of Edymore, aged 66 years
October 29 1833 SINGULAR ROBBERIES. About three weeks ago, two Bee Hives were stolen from the garden of MRS. HOOD, of Carrygullon, and a few days ago two were also taken from the garden of MR. WILLIAM HUNTER, of Cavanalee. We would recommend all persons to whom honey may be offered for sale, to be particular in their enquiries after the persons who may offer it as such plunder, if not closely watched, may discourage the practice of rearing Bees altogether. We understand, a Reward, respectably signed, will be offered for the apprehension of the thieves.
