Belle Howell Bohn Injured in Runaway

It was a typical January day for Arabella Emelia “Belle” Howell Bohn that morning in 1914.  Bundling up, she took the reins of her buggy to run a few errands.  Unfortunately, the day didn’t end well.

Just a few hours later, something spooked the horse causing it to run away.  Belle was thrown from the buggy and fractured her skull.

The daughter of the famous Rear Admiral John Adams Howell, Belle survived her injuries and eventually cared for her father at her home during his last years.
