Notes / Description: 

Cornelia's last name is also spelled Mayweathers in some of the documents. Cornelia sued for $15,000 after her husband, employed by TDWHC to operate a newly installed rip saw, was killed on the job. The saw "tore loose and broke away from its fixed place and ran through the body of the said Dalton Maywethers and on into the wall of the defendant's plant."
