  • Obituary printed in the The Evening Post (New York City NY) on 24 Aug 1830
    Boston, August 23.
    We regret to learn that Mr. Henry D. Wolcott, late of the firm of Wolcott & Gelston, jewelers, of this city, was found in one of the bathing houses at Craigie's Bridge, on Saturday evening, drowned. He had gone to bathe about 6 o'clock in the morning, and inquiries were made by his family through the day. It appears that the man who was in attendance at the establishment in the morning, went away soon after. The person who attended through the day, observed at one time that the door was fast, but supposing some one was bathing, made no inquiry, and thought no more of it until search was made about 8 o'clock in the evening, by persons in pursuit of Mr. W.
