In 1913, Herman August Schultz, eight years old, son of Mrs. August Schultz of Maple Street, Westfield, was drowned in what was known as the mill dam in Westfield Creek late Saturday afternoon. His body was found floating in the creek near the Westfield mills Sunday night by two boys. They went to the mill and told Martin Stoakes, who took the body from the water.
