Adams County Gazette, August 16, 1876.

A few days ago a ten year old son of John Powers, in Lucas County, was bitten through the finger by a rattlesnake. About four hours after the boy was bitten, Dr. Wilson arrived and applied internal remedies, but reported him in critical condition when he left. The reptile was found and killed. It was a large one having six rattles.
