Charles Haskell

Taken from the History of Washington County by H Z Williams

Pg 572-573

            The drowning of Charles Haskell is perhaps the most remarkable and the saddest case of this kind on record. Charles Haskell was, at the time of his tragic death, a respected citizen and a prominent member of the Baptist church. He resided next to the river where he had his store. Saturday, July 23, 1831, he observed that some boats that he had secured to the Ohio shore were being blown by the wind towards the Virginia side. Without a second thought he plunged into the river, and his wife happening to come to the door for a moment, saw him swimming towards the boat. Having confidence in her husband's strength, she went into the house, but upon looking towards the river shortly afterwards she was horrified by the non-appearance of her husband, and the terrible thought was at once suggested that he had sank under the cruel water. This proved too true. It is supposed that he was seized with cramps while trying to get the boat, and thus met a watery grave. A long search in the vicinity failed to discover any trace of the drowned man, and it was not until the third day that the body was found in the river at a pint opposite Marietta. At the time of his death, Mr. Hasekel was clerk of the Baptist Church, and it is recorded that Charles Little was elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of their beloved brother.
