REDDENBAUGH, William - Source: Crawfordsville Star 6 July 1882 p 1
Wm. Reddenbaugh, a log-hauler of this city was thrown from his heavily loaded wagon in driving down a hill two miles east of the city yesterday evening.  The forward wheel ran across his left arm and head and when the wagon stopped, the hind wheel was across his body. Another teamster liberated him and Reddenbaugh to his own amazement found he had suffered no broken bones.

RUFFNER, Charles -- Source: Crawfordsville Review 21 Dec 1895 p 1
Charles Ruffner, a clerk of John Potts and a son of Frank Ruffner, the natural born fool, last week undertook to do his eating fire act. He saturated a cotton ball with gasoline and by accident spilled some of it on his face. Charles then lit it with a match and before he could put it out his face was badly burned into blisters. He looked like he had been fighting the Darlington bloodhounds and it is thought he will not try the act again.
