In 1912 Canoe Upset; Boy Drowned
Spring flooding in the Mettowee River can be especially dangerous. Almost one hundred years ago, in June 1912, Willard Mylott son of George L. and Mary E. Wilson Mylott, drowned in the raging waters. Willard was a twin but his twin brother, Willis, died in infancy. Willard's brother, Richard, survived the ordeal in the river.
