Harryman Accidental Shooting 11-24-1855
Uni-: Affairs ix Baltimore County. We copy the following from the Towsontown Advocate: Aceident. On Saturday last, some young men from the city were on a gunning excursion in this neighborhood, and when on the Pot Spring Farm, one of the inumber, Mr. Henry Clay Merryman, son of the late Micajah Merryman, was badly wounded, i It appears that Mr M. was stooping down cracking a nut by the side of a fence, when a bird Ilewup. Mr. John Harryman, one of the company, was on the other side of the fence, raised his gun and tired over it at the bird; at the same Instant Mr. Merryman rose also, and the load took effect in his head and face, the principal part in his forehead. Two shot entered the cavity of the eye, and ffars are entertained that they have en- en- . tered the brain, but at this time we understand he is out of danger.
