This short except comes from "History of Monroe County" published 1912. Editor Randoph A Richards. The incidents happened at Sparta,Wisconsin in 1856. "The day that the Liberty Hall floor broke seemed to be the day of accidents; it is related that the frame of the Methodist Church had just been raised and Benjamin Stevens and Morton Bump, two carpenters, were putting up the frame of the belfry, when one of the ties broke, letting down the timbers and workmen at the same time: Stevens was severly hurt but Bump escaped with a slight injury; during the same day a man fell from the top of a building on Oak street , but was not seriously injured."P.S. No specific date in 1856 was given in article. Hope this helps Bump Family Researchers, amp
