    Notes 
    • Ontario County Chronicle, May 15 1901
      Bristol, N. Y. - A very shocking tragedy occurred in the western part of this town last Friday when Curtis Hitchcock, a well-to-do and respected farmer made an attempt at suicide but failed for the time being in his undertaking. His wife was about to make an afternoon call when Mr. Hitchcock persuaded her to remain at home for awhile. In a few minutes Mrs. Hitchcock and Geo. Briggs, a young nephew who lives there, heard three reports of a revolver which came from a room in the upper story of the house. They hurried to the scene above and found Mr. Hitchcock in a very critical condition slashing himself in and around the arms with a large jackknife. Mr. Briggs finally succeeded in getting him quieted, only after a hard struggle. Upon an examination they found that three bullets had entered his chest, besides the gashes in his arms. At the present writing he lies in a critical condition. The cause of this step is hardly understood. While many theories arise as to the cause of this act, it still remains a secret. Of late he has been afflicted with the grip which fact accounts for his state of despondency. His wife and daughter have the sympathy of the entire community in their sad affliction.
