Waterman Finds Body of Joseph Coleman, 70
      Drowning Victom Loses Life While Crabbing in Kirwans Creek, Head Gashed

Stevensville, Md. Sept. 1 -- Watermen today found the body of Joseph Coleman, 70, who was drowned while crabbing in Kirwans Creek yesterday. Apsley Coleman, son of the dead man, said he believed the motor of his father's boat started accidently, throwing him overboard. The man's empty boat, found yesterday by Laurance Chance, had water grass wrapped around the propeller. The switch of the engine was on. Apsley said he believed his father might have leaned over the stern of the boat to clear away the grass after it stalled the engine. He said it is possible that his father, in turning the propeller, had restarted the engine, the resulting jerk throwing him overboard. Coleman's head was gashed and his son said he probably received this injury when he was struck by the propeller.
