I have a drowning story in my geneology and the name is very close.
Headline: Five Persons Drowned, by the overturning of a ferry boat in the Big Horn River, near Thermopolis, Wyo, on the 22nd.(1898). The name of the victims are: Harry Beggs, Mrs. Harry Beggs, the infant child of Mr. & Mrs. Beggs, O.P. Gray, (son-inlaw of Mr. Jas V. Cantlin), and Miss Myrtle Cantlin.
Mrs. Gray, wife of one of the victims, was rescued with great difficulty.
The party, all visitors at the Themopolis Hot Springs, were attempting to cross the Big Horn river in a ferry boat.
