Citizen (Schooner), U4273, Captain's death, 1 May 1845

Full Text

The flags upon the shipping in the harbor were suspended at half mast yesterday, on account of the death of Capt. John P. Teale, of the schooner CITIZEN. The CITIZEN cleared from this port and when about opposite Silver Creek, Capt. T. was suddenly, and violently siezed with illness, and put into that place for assistance. The symptoms grew more ararming, and the schooner put about to return to Buffalo, but Capt. T. expired about 12 miles out. Coroner Harris held an inquest upon the body, and it was ascertained that his death was caused by inflammation of the stomach.
