"Fri. Mar 8, 1889 - Squalley and snow flies. Our folks drawed a few logs and sat around - thy fetched in two lambs in eve. MR. GEORGE FILKINS was shot in his side by his Brother EDWIN L. FILKINS."
This may explain why later that year Edwin's wife divorced him and married another man.
Sort of makes one want to search on an ancestors name. It inspired me to update all of the Hilltown sites.
