DEATH: "Tobias died in a tragic accident. Bears had been bothering the farmers, so Tobias and George (his brother) went out one night when there was a full moon to see if they could shoot it, as it would crush the cornstalks in the field. They separated in the cornfield and lost sight of one another. George thought he heard the bear and shot, but it was his brother, Tobias, who lay dead in the field. He was buried in the Old Sidney Burying Ground, the 2nd of John and Polly's children to be buried there." (MS)
