Additional: From Tales From an Adirondack County (Pg. 99) "There was the strange case, too, of Henry Streeter, brother-in-law of Henry Courtney. Streeter had gone to the Civil War and used to remark that, due to the clerical type of duty to which he had been assigned, he was never near a fired shot.
But if he had escaped the use of guns in the Army, it was not to leave them in home life, where hunting was as part of living. On October 31, 1875, Streeter went hunting with a group of neighboring men down the Elm Lake Road. As the day drew to a close, it became evident that Streeter was missing. His companions became uneasy.
Streeter kept a rowboat on Elm Lake and fears were expressed that he might have drowned. Quickly, a search was instigated.
To the horror of his companions, Henry Streeter's lifeless body was found in the woods no great distance away. Investigation showed a bullet hole through his forehead.
One member of the party was found with Streeter's gun. He had traded with Streeter earlier that day, he declared. Streeter had always carried his change in a small box in which caps for muzzle-loading rifles were packed. The same man had the cap box, too.
There were rumblings about these circumstances, but the man in question was of a well-known family. Although suspicion was general, no investigation was made. Henry Streeter had escaped war-time battle, only to die mysteriously by a bullet in the peaceful beauty of his homeland."
