115 Years Ago – 1908

Mr. Luther E. Burnham reports seeing a number of dandelion blossoms on the road to the woods one day last week in as good condition as those of the early spring.

90 Years Ago – 1933

Considerable notoriety has been brought to Essex through the tragic death of one of our well-known citizens, William Bagwell, whose body was discovered by his wife on the floor of the kitchen of their home at 7 o’clock Tuesday morning.  The case is under investigation by the police.  He was 58 years of age and quite prominent in the social life of the town and a member of the Essex Veteran Firemen’s Association.
