    Mrs. Adelia Wixon was awarded $800 and five per cent allowance, from a jury in Poughkeepsie, in her civil court case against Michael McCabe, a saloon keeper in Matteawan, in the death of her husband November last. Mr. Wixon, of Glenham, had gone into McCabe's saloon, had five glasses of apple whiskey, went out, and lying down under a tree, died. His wages had been $1.50 a day.

    14 Oct 1876
    The Poughkeepsie Eagle gives the testimony of the witnesses in the Wickson - McCabe Case: His family was composed of his wife, Adelia Wickson, and six or seven children. They had been married for 27 years. Mr. Wickson, of Glenham, had gone into McCabe's saloon, had five glasses of whiskey; went out, and lying down under a cedar tree, died. Mr. Wickson was about 49 years of age, was the sole support of his widow. The jury returned a verdict of "death from intoxication" and the amount of damages claimed in this suit was fixed at $5000. Judge Barnard delivered the charge, as stated last week.
