Fatality at Winteringham
Old Lady's Curious Death
Mr Philip Gamble, Coroner, held an inquiry at Winteringham yesterday, into the death of Mrs Hannah Horberry, aged 95, the widow of a cattle dealer.  On the 13th inst., a little dog ran into the house.  Deceased took a stick, and bending down, put it underneath the couch.  The dog snarled at her, and she fell.  She was placed in a chair, and Dr Baker sent for, and he found her thigh fractured.  He set it, but it made no attempt to unite, and she gradually grew weaker and died.  The cause of death was shock and extreme old age.  A verdict of "Accidental death" was returned.
