Random-ish Thought

Has anyone else noticed Anthony Trollope’s short story “Malachi’s Cove” (1864) and David Guterson’s novel Snow Falling on Cedars (1995) is the same story?

Check it out:
1. both are set in a coastal area
2. plots are centered around a water-related death and/or injury
3. a character is wrongfully accused of causing that death and/or injury
4. the false accusations are steeped in prejudice
5. the wrongly accused character is vindicated at end of story (yay!)
