West Briton, 21 July 1843

MELANCHOLY AND FATAL ACCIDENT

A short time ago, as Mr. J. TRELEAVEN, son of Mr. Treleaven, the relieving officer for the Callington district, was assisting in Mr. UNWIN's snuff manufactory, at Gunnislake, his arm got entangled in the mill, when two of his fingers were cut off instantly by the machine, and the arm was so dreadfully lacerated that it was found necessary to amputate it at the elbow. After suffering the most excruciating pain for a fortnight, the unfortunate man was seized with locked-jaw, which terminated his sufferings on Monday last. He was about 21 years of age, and was about to be married to the only daughter of Mr. Unwin.
