1859 – Fatal Accident at Bacton

Daniel Morgan was a 45 year old married man with three children.

One day he was hauling timber in Bacton Wood with John Davies;  as they were bringing in a load of timber the horses were halted, and Daniel Morgan went to tie the wheel, and thinking that he had done so he called to John to go on.  He was knocked down and the wheel went on to his body.

John Davies quickly unhooked the horses and attached them to the back of the carriage in an effort to get the wheel off Daniel but he was unable to do it alone.  By the time that help arrived it was too late, and Daniel was dead.
