Chilton Times April 14, 1877

Nearly Drowned; Nelson Ebert, a seven or eight year old son of ex-Sheriff Ebert, narrowly escaped drowning near his home on the South side on Monday last. He went to the river with a younger brother and got on the rotten ice near the bank when he broke through the ice; but immediately came to the surface through the hole he had made and with great presence of mind, instructed his brother to give an alarm as to his situation. The alarm was luckily heard and help went rapidly to his assistance and the little fellow was rescued from his perilious situation by C. Lytton. This is the second time that little Nelson nearly met with a watery grave, and we cannot let the occasion pass by with out again cautioning parents not to permit their little ones approach too meat the river unless attended by some grown person.
