Extraordinary Circumstance

American Friend, & Marietta Gazette, November 15, 1828

On the evening of the 30th of October last, came to the house of the subscriber, living in Summerfield, Monroe County, Ohio, a gentleman about five feet six or seven inches high, thick set, of red complexion, sandy colored hair, and red whiskers - had on a light drab frock coat, and a high crown fur hat, known in this part of the country by the name of Joseph Berry, had with him a small bay horse, blind of the right eye, supposed to be 13 or 14 years old, and a handsome Dearborn wagon, bed painted green - and having taken his supper walked out, while Mr. William Heddleston and myself were at the stable, and has not been seen or heard of as yet known, leaving his horse and carriage, with some provisions in a linen bag.  Persons interested are requested to avail themselves of this notice, as proceedings will be taken on the case as the law directs.
