buried in Frenchtown Cemetery.General:
A Double Yelked Turkey. - We have been informed from a reliable quarter, that Wm. S. Sutton, near Baptisttown,
Kingwood Township, in this County, sold recently in New York City, a Turkey for $100, its weight being about 40
lbs. Mrs. S. also raised some ten or a dozen of the same breed, weighing from twenty to thirty lbs each. They are of
the South Caroline double yelked breed. It is said that there never has been such a large Turkey in New York City,
nor one that commanded such a large price. If our New England people could get such large Turkeys for
Thanksgiving dinner, one would be sufficient for a whole neighborhood.
