New Jersey Obituaries - March 16, 1898 - Edmund Bardwell

Edmund Bardwell, a carpenter, who lived in David Hance's house on Monmouth street, was stricken with paralysis last Thursday while at work on R. W. Gleason's new house on Pearl street. He was on a scaffold on the outside of the building and he fell through a window on the attic floor. There were no stairs in the building and he had to be lowered to the ground with ropes. Dr. Rush attended him and he apparently recovered. This morning while he was sitting at the breakfast table he was again stricken with paralysis. He fell off his chair and died in a few minutes. He was 62 years old and leaves a daughter, Mrs. Darwin Smith of Red Bank, and a son who lives at Trumansburg, New York. A short service will be held at the house at five o'clock to-morrow afternoon, and the body will be sent to Trumansburg for burial.
