He coughed at an instant to save him from death. At an early period in the history of this town, one of those terrible tornadoes passed over it, which are occasionally expe- rienced in New England. It was so strong that scarcely anything could stand before it. Houses and barns were lev- elled to the ground, and trees were whirled about in the air like sticks. Men and children were caught up and carried along by its resistless force for many rods. Unlike most of the other violent winds which hav...e passed over New England, this took place in the winter. The fearful tornado, which so desolated Warner and New London, in 1821, occurred in September, and was preceded by some of the hottest weather of the season. During the prevalence of this wind in Jack- son a most ludicrous expedient was adopted by one of its inhabitants to save his children from being torn from him, and borne away on its current. His house had been razed by it to the ground. Chairs, beds, bedding, tables and chil- dren, were all flying in the wind.
