EAGAN, James
Obituary
Muskegon News & Reporter, Oct 18, 1870  DROWNED - James Eagan, a sailor on the scow Selma was drowned at Port Sherman last Thursday.  The scow was being towed out when it was discovered that she was running afoul the dock, and Eagan and another man ran aft to see what was wrong.  The deck being slippery and without any railing by which to check his speed, Eagan ran off into the river.  All efforts to save him proved ineffectual.--  The body was recovered and an inquest held by Justice Weller Friday, and his remains interred in the city cemetery.
