John Hurrell - Dueling to his death

In my continuing research of my Hurrell family, I uncovered this sad story of John Hurrell, dying at age 18 from injuries sustained in a duel.

There was quite a bit of news coverage for the day - I found at least 3 articles regarding the duel and inquest.

The following article delves into the motivations and consequences......truly sad.

Update:  His father and the Demelweeks were acquitted in March 1831 at Plymouth
