"We had people _horseback-searching_."

In context, searching for the (body of the) missing boyfriend by randomly
riding in and about the county on horseback, looking "hither, thither, and
yon" - as my mother used to say.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
