The grave marker of Loyal W Eldredge reads: "son of Lemuel and Patty in the 20th year of his age. Drowned in the New Haven River in the Great Flood".
Back on the island only a small spot remained above water. The Stewart family was among those left on the island. Mr. Stewart himself was blind and one of his daughters had been ill for over a year and was unable to walk. She was brought to the barn and laid on the floor. When the water came into the barn she was laid in a manger. She had stopped moving. Her brother went to the manger to comfort her but she did not respond. He put his hand to her forehead, no longer would she suffer. The lights now extinguished, the barn shook. At that moment the Wilson house broke free of the jam and, floated by accompanied by lumber from the saw mill, wrecked buildings, and bridges. It was like a moving mountain, accompanied by the screams of the trapped women and children. The screams quickly became lost in the roar of the water. Five of the men left in the barn constructed a hasty raft from the doors and other loose lumber in the barn. They shoved off but their efforts to reach the shore were in vain as the current was far to strong. Soon after they left the barn began to collapse. It didn't fall all at once. While one end was shattered the other still clung to the foundation. Inside the occupants were climbing through the wrecked rafters to avoid the rising water, save for Mrs. Stewart who's foot was crushed and trapped under a collapsed beam. The swells were now twenty-seven feet above the normal level of the stream. Mrs. Stewart's son was attempting to free his mother when the barn's hold on the earth gave out. As if it was happening in slow motion the wrecked barn rose and was then swallowed by the water. The makeshift raft wasn't faring much better. One of the swells grabbed it and pulled it under, passengers and all. Among the passengers were Lemuel Barrows Eldredge (1799-1864) and his son Loyal (1811-1830). Loyal being an expert swimmer headed straight for the surface. A fatal mistake as he met his end being battered by timbers and debris swept up by the water. Lemuel caught in an undertow was dragged down, he took several blows to the head and other parts of his body. Suddenly he was driven in contact with someone else from the raft. The body was cold and lifeless, it was his son! Just as quickly as they came into contact he was ripped away. Being unable to remain below any longer he headed to the surface. Fortunately the waters had calmed somewhat at this point. He grabbed a plank and caught his breath. After about three quarters of a mile he was caught among the debris on the bank. Exhausted he remained there until help arrived in the morning. Several others were likewise fortunate enough to survive. It took time to recover all the bodies. Little Sarah Hale Wilson (1827-1830) was the last to be found forty days after that terrible night and nine miles from where she disappeared.
