Robert Sixbury was a pioneer in Jefferson County, New York. He provided venison for surveying companies in the early 1800's. One night, he had a few too many swigs from the jug, and fell asleep too close to the fire. As a result, his right leg was amputated from the knee down. See the wooden leg? Sixbury lived to the ripe old age of 110. See this series of newspaper articles about his life.
