Miami Union (In Piqua Items)

March 4, 1876 

BAILEY, MARTIN - A sad case of drowning occurred at Lockington on Sunday night.  Martin Bailey, an estimable young man, while returning from church, fell into one of the locks which was half full of water.  His cries for help were unheeded as they were supposed to arise from some disorderly person, and he was left to perish.  The marks on the side walls mutely told the pitiful story of his desperate attempt to escape from the terrible death pit, where finally despairing of rescue he had met his fate.
