Newspaper articles about accident and death of Mrs. George Hall in Goodlettsville 

Republic Banner Oct 17, 1858

Accident and Amputation-the Lincoln Journal has the following: We are pained to learn that Mrs. George Hall of this county was so seriously injured in jumping from her carriage about four weeks ago at Goodlettsville in Davidson County, that amputation of the right leg below the knee has been necessary. The operation was performed on the last Friday by Dr. P.F Eve of Nashville[i]. Mrs. Hall was visiting her friends in that county, the horses became frightened and attempted to run away and in her escape from the carriage, must have been stricken by the hub or run over by the wheel as both legs were badly bruised. She is at the residence of her brother G.W Blakemore, and her condition at the latest intelligence extremely critical.

 

Fayette Observer on October 21, 1858

Accident Causing Death- Mrs. Hall, wife of Mr. George Hall of Petersburg, died, we are sorry to lean, last Monday of lock jaw, caused by injuries received in Goodlettsville, near Nashville, a few weeks since, by the running away of her carriage horses. She was one of the oldest, as she was one of the most respected, of Lincoln citizens.

 

Nashville Union and American on October 23, 1858

The wife of Mr. George Hall, of Lincoln county, died on the 18th inst, of lock jaw caused by injuries received a few weeks since in Goodlettsville by the horses running away with the carriage in which she was riding.

 

These news articles about the accident and death of Mrs. George Hall, while tragic, provide more details.  Of importance, it says she was at the house of her brother in Goodlettsville, GW Blakemore. G W Blakemore was in fact living in District 20 in Davidson County in 1850 and 1860 census which is where Goodlettsville is located.

 

There is a DAR approved application from 1914 for a Jesse Rives Blakemore whose great grandfather was the patriot George Blakemore. Jesse’s grandfather was his son, George Washington Blakemore.  (George Washington Blakemore married Mary Green Rives, a half-sister of Benjamin Watkins Leigh Rives who married our Harriet Ellen Flynt.)
