Chilton Times August 26, 1865

Fatal Accident-On the 25th inst. About four miles east of Potters mill, on the North Branch of the Manitowoc River, Stephan Baker, aged 14 years, was shot through the head by Frank Albee, a boy of about the same age. It seems that the two boys went duck hunting in a boat and came in sight of some ducks; both agreed to fire together, when unfortunately the charge from Albee's gun entered the back of young Bakers head, killing him almost instantly. The deceased was the only son of Levi Baker, a highly respected citizen of Rantoul.
