Squire Deen of Eaton

I am not related to any Hoel or Deen family but found the following article on microfilm while searching for something else. The film is located at University of Notre Dame library.

The National Police Gazette
The Leading Illustrated Sporting Journal in America
New York; Saturday, October 1, 1892, page 6


Miss Lizzie Hoel, employed in a Hamilton, O. laundry, accepted an invitation the other night to go rowing with Squire Deen, a young man from Eaton. They had barely left the shore when the young Deen made an indecent proposal to Miss Hoel, who resented the insult and demanded that the boat be rowed ashore. Deen, finding that he could not accomplish his purpose, siezed the girl and threw her overboard. In the stuggle the boat was overturned, and he, too, was thrown into the water. The brute attempted to swim ashore but was drowned. She was rescued by Joseph Foosmeir just as she was sinking for the last time. Deen's body was recovered.
