L- Carlisle D. Graham, 1st man to go through the whirlpool rapids in a barrel and live, died July 11, 1886. R- Annie Edson Taylor, famous for being the 1st person to go over the Horseshoe Falls in a barrel and live. (on Oct.24, 1901) Oakwood Cemetery Niagara Falls NY USA © Linda Dawn Hammond / IndyFoto.com '11 Carlisle Graham SHOOTING THE RAPIDS On Sunday, July 11th, 1886 Graham Carlisle, a barrel maker from Philadelphia became the first person ever to shoot the Great Gorge Rapids in a barrel. Carlisle Graham would make his trip in a five and a half foot barrel of oaken staves and handmade iron hoops. Graham, being six feet tall was forced to stoop over once inside to allow the water-tight lid to be secured into place. With the exception of his arms Graham was encased in waterproof sheeting. Metal handles would allow him to grip the barrel. Carlisle Graham’s trip took 30 minutes. When rescued Mr. Graham was unhurt but he had become extremely ill and dizzy from the trip. On August 19th, 1886 Mr. Graham attempted another trip through the rapids. This time he was planning on leaving his head outside the barrel. Graham survived this second attempt but sustained hearing loss. The day before Graham’s second trip another stunter James Scott of Lewiston, New York attempted to swim the rapids and lost his life. Carlisle Graham would make several more trips through the Great Gorge Rapids. His third trip was on June 15th, 1887 while his fourth trip in a newly designed seven foot barrel was on August 25th, 1889. On July 14th, 1901 Graham made his fifth trip. This time he would not be so lucky. His barrel became caught in a whirlpool eddie and he came very close to suffocating. By this time Carlisle Graham had gained much notoriety and he had become quite a showman. He talked about making the trip over the falls, but never actually followed through. On September 7th, 1901 Graham had masterminded a double performance with a friend, Maud Willard of Canton, Ohio. She would ride the barrel through the Whirlpool Rapids and into the Whirlpool itself. Graham was then to intercept the barrel at the Devil’s Hole Rapids and swim alongside the barrel to Lewiston. Maud Willard performed her stunt, but unfortunately was caught in the Whirlpool Rapids. Graham went on to perform his part of the stunt by swimming all the way to Lewiston without Willard. Upon returning to the Whirlpool later in the evening Graham found that his barrel with Maud Willard inside was still trapped in the Whirlpool Rapids. Maude had been inside for over five hours!. When the barrel was finally caught and pulled into shore it was discovered that Miss Willard had suffocated. Her pet fox terrier, who had accompanied her on the trip was unharmed. (Graham is buried near Willard, and paid for her monument as she died in one of his barrels. ) Information courtesy of Niagara Daredevils Annie Edson Taylor In the fall of 1901 Annie Edson Taylor took a trip that she thought would bring her fame and fortune. On her 63rd birthday the former school teacher climbed into a barrel with her pet cat at her side. The hatch was closed and the barrel was set adrift above Niagara Horseshoe Falls. She began a voyage that day that only a handful of people over the last century would live to tell about. She began her life in Auburn, NY and grew up with a comfortable lifestyle. Although her father passed away when Annie was 12, his inheritance left them in a style the family was accustomed to. At 17 Annie met David Taylor, and after a short courtship they were married. A baby followed but passed away within days of being born. At 25 she became a widow after David was wounded in the Civil War. After a stint in San Antonio, Texas as a school teacher, she decided to move back to New York State where she became a dance instructor. She liked the finer things, and as her parent's inheritance began to run out she became more desperate to make ends meet. The thought of living a life with less than finer things literally "drove her to the brink". The New York Times, October 25, 1901 WOMAN GOES OVER NIAGARA IN A BARREL ------ She Is Alive, but Suffering Greatly from Shock ------- Plunges from the Horseshoe Cataract -- -- Thousands View the Attempt -- "Don't Try It,” She Advises Others. ------- Special to the New York Times. NIAGARA FALLS, N. Y., Oct. 24. -- A widowed woman, Mrs. Anna Edson Taylor, safely passed over Niagara Falls in a barrel this afternoon. The trip from end to end was witnessed by several thousand people. The fact that Mrs. Taylor failed to go on Wednesday did not lessen the confidence of the public in her. Still everybody was agreed that it was a foolhardy trip. It was beyond any conception but her own that she would live to tell the story. But she is alive to-night, and the doctors say as soon as she gets over the shock she will be all right. This initial voyage over Niagara's cataract began at Port Day, nearly
