Buttsworth, Ann (1839–1866)

An inquest was held on Saturday last, at Wilberforce, before Mr. Laban White, coroner, and a jury, on the body of a young woman named Ann Buttsworth, wife of Josiah Buttsworth, of Wilberforce. From the evidence it seemed the deceased was taken suddenly ill on Friday morning; medical attendance was procured, but death ensued in a very short time. The deceased was generally a healthy person. A post mortem examination was made on the body by Dr. Day, who presented a certificate to the following effect. There were no external appearances of any moment to be observed; there was a large quantity of blood in the throat, very extensive congestion of the lungs; a large vessel had given way, occasioning hemorrhage. He was of opinion that death resulted from suffocation, in consequence of the hemorrhage. Verdict accordingly.
