ABBOTT, Henry Phillip Submitted by Tammy Knipp <mailto:TKnipp4599@aol.com>
In Memory of HENRY P. ABBOTT.
Henry Phillips Abbott, late of Allen Township, Washington county, was born in Brownsville, Fayette County, Pa., October 31, 1835, and was almost instantly killed by a fall of coal and slate in the Clipper coal mines, near the village of Allenport, Washington county, Pa., on the morning of June 29, 1891. In comemoration of an honored parent we pay this tribute of respect to his memory. His early manhood was spent in and near Fayette City, having for a number of years engaged in mining and before the day of steamboats, in boating coal from the Monongahela River to southern markets, a business full of variety and which he took a delight. Twice previous to the fatal 29th of June, 1891, he was twice carried from the same mine badly injured; at one time a leg broken, a second so severly injured in the back that fears were entertained for his recovery. At the age of 27 years at the country's call for volunteers to preserve the flag from dishonor, he enlisted under Captain Frank M. Nelson in Company B, 8th Regiment of Infantry, P.R.C. volunteers, and was enrolled on the 25th day of June, 1861, to serve three years or during the war, and was discharged from service in this Company on the 18th day of June, 1863, at a camp near Alexander, Va. by reason of re-enlistment as a private in Company H, 191st Regiment Infantry, Pennsylvania veteren volunteers, Enrolled on the 19th day of November, 1863, and served until the close of the war, being finally discharged from the service of the United States the 28th day of June, 1865. After the close of this great National conflict he returned to his former home near Fayette City and resumed his former occupation and quiet life. Being a man of firm convictions and in everything consistant to the ____ as he saw and believed the right, he renounced the political faith of his ancestery and became an unalterable Republican, believing as lie had often said either he could not support by ballot the cause he had taken up arms against in more than four years of bitter struggle and privation. He was a thorough American and a radical protectionist, never slaughtering his party and the common good of the people to appease a personal grudge; he lost sight of individuals in loyalty to the policy of his party and his country.... ....His remains are resting on beautiful Mt. Tabor cemetery; laid there by the loving hands, and with the ritualistic ceremonies of his comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic.

ABRAHAM— In sad and loving memory of Jeffrey Lynn Abraham of Fairchance who was killed Aug. 8, 1982 as a result of a tragic automobile accident. There is a family who misses you sadly, And finds the time since you went, Those whom we care about go out at night, But never out of mind.

Sadly missed by the family of Mark A. Eberhart

Martha Jane ACKLIN ( -1865)

DEATHS

  ACKLIN— Departed this life on Saturday the 10th of June, 1865, Miss MARTHA JANE ACKLIN daughter of John Acklin of Luzerne township, Fayette County, Pa. aged 24 years. Miss Acklin was an estimable lady and a worthy member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Her affliction was long and painful, but was borne with Christian fortitude and resignation. When her recovery became doubtful she said to her pastor that if it were the will of God that she should recover, she would be thankful as she had many dear friends with whom she would like to live a while longer, but if it were not, she was ready to go. Her funeral was attended by a large number of her friends and neighbors, showing the esteem in which she was held by those who knew her best.

Peacefully lay her down to rest,
Place the turf kindly on her breast,
Sweet is the slumber beneath the sod,
While the pure soul is resting with God.
Close to her lone and narrow house,
Gracefully move ye willow boughs.
Flowers of the wild wood your odors shed,
Over the Holy, beautiful dead.
Quietly sleep beloved one,
Rest from thy toil thy labor is done;
Rest till the trump from the opening skies,
Lids thee from dust to glory arise.
Peacefully sleep, peacefully sleep,
Sleep till the morning, peacefully sleep. H.

For 44 years our Dad had the finest garden and the best looking yard on the Youghiogheny River on River Road in Whitsett. Friends and complete strangers often stopped to tell Dad how they admired his garden and his place-and Dad just beamed, often giving the folks vegetables from the garden to enjoy. Dad was a man of few words. He lived simply and especially enjoyed bowling, fishing and hunting-even when a deer "snuck" up on him one early morning, snorting behind him and scaring Dad to the point he fell off the log on which he was sitting. We'll miss him mightily! Life won't be the same on River Road anymore with his passing. God bless his soul and may he be with Mom right now in Heaven. John left behind four children, Patty, John, Tom and Janice; five grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren; and one sister, Mary.

Woman dies of crash injuries

A 77-year-old Masontown woman died overnight on Saturday following a recent two-vehicle accident on Route 21. Willie S. Adams was pronounced dead at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W.Va., at 1:51 a.m. Saturday, less than seven hours after she was transported to the hospital by medical helicopter for injuries suffered in the Friday evening crash. The 6:56 p.m. accident occurred when vehicles driven by Adams and Sheila J. Snyder, 55, of Connellsville collided at the intersection of Route 21 and Puritan Road.

According to a report filed by state police Trooper Joseph Panepinto of the Uniontown barracks, Adams' silver 1990 Chevrolet Cavalier was traveling west on Route 21 when it failed to stop at a steady red signal located at the intersection with Puritan Road. Adams' vehicle entered the intersection, driving into the path of Snyder's green 1995 Chevrolet Blazer that was traveling north through the intersection from Puritan Road, said police.

Within the intersection, the front bumper area of Snyder's vehicle collided with the driver's side rear fender area on Adams' vehicle, according to police. After the initial impact, Adams' vehicle traveled southwest down an embankment prior to rolling over onto its roof, police noted. It was unknown whether Adams was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, while Snyder was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and was not injured, police noted.

The Bernard M. Townsend Funeral Home in Masontown is handling funeral arrangements, which are incomplete and will be announced on Thursday.

Mary Ann AGNEW ( -1829)

DIED— at the house of her brother, in this place, on Thursday the 13th inst, Miss MARY ANN, daughter of Doctor SAMUEL AGNEW of Harrisburgh. The deceased early devoted herself to the Saviour—lived the life, and died the death of the Christian, rejoicing in the prospect of “praising the Lamb forever and ever.”

The grave is near the cradle scene,
How swift the moments pass between,
And Whisper as they fly,--
Unthinking man! Remember this,
Thou fond of sublunary bliss
That thou might grasp and die.

DIRGE FOR MISS AGNEW
To the green and lovely earth,
Bright eyes and tranquil brow;
Of her ye had your birth,
And we yield you to her now.
Worn form! Devoid of breath,
Peace to thy lonely cell:
‘Till the dying day of Death,--
‘Till the judgment morn, farewell!

We have buried what could die;
But thy soul,--that quenchless gem,
Shall ever sparkle high
In the Saviour’s kingdom.
Aye, take the ‘harp’* of praise
That matchless mercy gives;
And hymn Heaven’s lofty lays,
While the God of Heaven lives!

The conflict all is past;
Thy King’s bright rest is won;
And firm thy “peace”* shall last
As the pillars of his throne!
While dark, and far below,
Our weary watch we keep:--
But pass each tear of woe,
It were ill that we should weep.

      M.

Stella Maria ALDRIDGE ( -1935)

Brownsville Girl
Killed By Motor

Ethel Aldridge, 4, Run
Down By Truck In
Street Play

   Struck by a Garner Dairy company truck late this morning, just in front of the Garletts garage in Sixth street, Brownsville, Ethel Aldridge, four-year-old daughter of Mrs. Ethel Aldridge, of 504 Second street, Brownsville, was almost instantly killed. The little girl had been playing in front of the car, and is believed to have darted out and stumbled, falling to the street in such manner that the wheels of the truck passed over her body. Harold Fruehan, of Brownsville, driver of the truck, said he was traveling down the street at about 10 miles an hour, and just as he reached the garage, another car passed. Fruehan felt a jarring effect at the rear of his truck, and looked back. He saw something he supposed was a baby doll lying in the street, and continued onward. However, he drove around the block and back down Sixth street again just to reassure himself. He found the little girl, dying. Picking her up, Fruehan placed her in another car, which had drawn up, and rushed her to the Brownsville General hospital. She was dead before admitted. Sergeant Steele of the Brownsville Police department went to the scene, and turned the case over to State Highway Patrolman M. J. Benko who investigated. Benko said the truck driver was going at an extremely low rate of speed. Fruehan will be held under $1,000 bond pending action of the coroner’s jury.

George ALLEN Stone  ( -1815)

DIED— After about three weeks illness, at his dwelling House in Union Township, on Friday the 17th inst. Mr. George Allen, in the 53rd year of his age: in him were combined all those qualities that may be justly said to dignify human nature: The kind affectionate husband, the fond and indulgent Father, the disinterested and generous friend, and the obliging neighbor, were distinguishing traits in his character. He was a friend to the distressed, a distinguished lover of his County, and an honest man. He died universally regretted, by all who knew him; his mortal remains were committed to the ground on the 19th, but we rejoice, that there is abundant reason to believe, that his soul is reclining on the Bosom of eternal bliss.

June 10 th ' 62, JAMES P. ALLEN , youngest son of Matthew and Elizabeth Allen, aged about 22 years.
James united with the M. E. Church at the Union School House , under the ministry of the Revs. Jas. Hollingshed, and H. McGarret in the autumn of 1859, and retained his membership and Christian integrity until death.
He was a young man of more than ordinary promise, and beloved by all who knew him. - During his brief connection with the army, he attended faithfully to his duties to his country, and practiced the highest principles of Christianity until stricken by fever, and then he came home to die. In his lucid moments he was much engaged in prayer, and to Christian friends who conversed with him, he gave them the assurance that his trust was in the Redeemer. At times his sufferings were excruciating, yet he bore them without a murmur. Though his friends feel their loss deeply, and mourn sincerely, yet they are consoled by the thought that he sleeps in Jesus, to await the resurrection of the just.

Lavinia ALLEN ( -1871)

KILLED BY LIGHTENING

   Mrs. Lavinia Allen, wife of John Allen, living on Maiden street, Washington, Pa., was struck by lightning on Wednesday, 26th ult., and almost instantly killed. The Review states that a fierce rain storm was prevailing, and Mrs. Allen had gone to the lower story of her dwelling to remove from the water some articles in the kitchen, and just as she stepped from the stairway into the door leading to the kitchen, the swelling was struck and she was prostrated by the electric fluid. Drs. Kennen, Grayson and Clark were quickly summoned and did all that medical skill could suggest to revive her, but without avail. It is probable she was killed instantly. An examination of the body showed that the fluid first struck the deceased on the right side of the neck, and then passed obliquely across the breast and down the left side, completely tearing from the left foot a lasting gaiter and a portion of the stocking, and leaving very distinct marks on the foot. The supposition is that the lightening; after striking the chimney and passing partially down the same, separated, one portion continuing to the second story and bursting through the wall about a foot from the ceiling, making two large apertures and scatting the plastering over the room, while the other portion ran along a rafter on a line with the foot of the stairway, down a large piece of timber in the studding, in the immediate vicinity of which Mrs. Allen was standing, and thence made its exit, striking her on the neck, as above described. A child of Mrs. Allen, aged about ten years, and which was being undressed for bed in the second story, was at the same time considerably stunned, but not seriously injured.

Martha J. Stone ALLEN ( -1853)

DIED

From the Cumberland Presbyterian

   In Martinsville, Ohio, March 21st, 1853, in the 31st year of her age, Mrs. MARTHA J. ALLEN, wife of Mr. James P. Allen, of that place. Mrs. Allen was a daughter of Wm. Stone of Uniontown, Pa. Some years ago she embraced religion under the ministry of Rev. John Morgan, and united with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Her uniform and fervid devotion to Christ, and his cause gave evidence, of a highly satisfactory character, that her conversion had been real, and that her piety was not of that evanescent or spasmodic kind we sometimes witness. Up to the time of her marriage and removal from the bounds of congregation to which she belonged, the writer had frequent opportunities to note her fidelity as a Christian. Her walk and conversation were as a light that shone with undiminished splendor. – She was not obtrusive, but more than ordinarily unassuming in her manners, and for this reason her true worth was not fully known, save to those whose acquaintance with her had been protracted and familiar. To them her peculiar modesty threw a charm over her whole life. She was endowed with an excellent mind, and had taken no little pains to store it with useful knowledge. – She engaged in a religious conversation with great interest and earnestness, always leaving the impression upon your mind that she was possessed of that deep- toned piety which clothes language and deeds with heavenly luster. She was remarkably kind to all, but peculiarly devoted to immediate friends and relatives. This rendered her the object of special regard in the family circle, and among her relative. She had many friends, but we believe, no enemies. Her piety made her a devoted wife and fond mother. Her heart clung to her husband and children with great tenacity. But it was left to the last few hours of her life to develop the full vigor of her piety. Hopes were entertained of her recovery until within a short time of her dissolution, when it was told her she could not long survive. – She manifested surprise but no alarm; at the mournful intelligence. She then addressed herself to the work of a special preparation to meet her God. After a short time spent in prayerful searching of the soul, and in making all things ready for her departure, said to her sister, “I am comfortable both in soul and body.” In a strong and melodious voice, and in a touching manner, she sung a verse of a favorite hymn. She exhorted those present to prepare for death, and sent word to her brothers and sisters to prepare to meet her in heaven. She gave directions that her children be given to her mother, again sung, and soon after fell into the sleep of death without a struggle. The presence of God dispelled the darkness of the entrance to eternity, and her Spirit passed from the confines of mortality, to its eternal rest.

“As fades a summer cloud away,
 As sinks the gale when storms are o’er,
 As gently shuts the eye of day,
 As dies a wave along the shore.”

   Death has in this instance opened deep wounds in many hearts. But may divine grace prove to them it’s healing power, and sanctify this sore bereavement to the present and eternal good of all! Her remains were taken to Uniontown, Pa., and on Wednesday of last week were followed by numerous friends and relations to the Baptist burying ground where they were committed to their last resting place.    COM.

MATTHEW ALLEN DIES SUDDENLY AT WHITE PLAINS

Prominent Seventh Ward Alderman Succumbs Saturday Night While Visiting His Son
Bringing Body to City

Matthew (Matt) Allen, for more than 20 years alderman of the Seventh Ward, Uniontown and one of Fayette County's most widely known residents, died suddenly at 7 o'clock Saturday evening June 5.1937, while visiting at the home of a son Josiah Allen, Chappoqua, New York. His death comes as a distinct shock to his family and his host of friends and acquaintances throughout Uniontown and Fayette County.Leaving here by motor with Mars, Allen, Friday, for Chappoqua, Mr. Allen was in fine spirits and in apparent good health. A short time after arriving at his son's home Saturday about noon, he complained of feeling ill and a physician was summoned. He rallied and seemed greatly improved but suffered a relapse and died suddenly a short time later.

Mr. Allen was the son of the late Josiah and Sara Clark Allen snd was born in Dunbar Township. In earlier life he was a successful paint contractor and later owned and operated Allen's Market on Morgantown Street. For more than twenty years he has been an alderman and on numerous occasions has presided as magistrate in police court here.

Surviving are his widow, Effie Barre Allen; two sons, Arthur Allen of Uniontown; Josiah of Chappoqua, New York; a grandson Josiah Jr. and two sisters, Miss Mollie Allen and Mrs. J. Searight Marshall, both of Uniontown. The body is to be returned here and is expected to arrive this evening.

Matthew Allen

Sad news,which stunned all of Uniontown and many other parts of Fayette County, flashed over the wire last night. Matt Allen had died at the home of his son Josiah in Chappqua, NY. Matt's good deeds to others were hidden under a cloak of modesty. No one knew how often he has patched up differences which would have produced increased sorrow and a drain on the finances of the poor persons. No one knew how many times he has lifted the burden of sorrow. It was Matt's policy not to let his left hand know what his right hand did. His kind acts paved the way to happiness for many, men and women drawn into the cruel clutches of the law. Many hundreds whom he had befriended always will cherish fond memories for the official who could have swung the pendulum either way but who invariably gave all the benefit of the doubt, but who bore down on those who deserved to be treated so. How highly the people of Uniontown esteemed Matt Allen was reflected in his reelection to the office of alderman in the Seventh Ward. They like all others who closely associated or had dealing with him, believed in Matt Allen; had faith and confined in his ability to administer justice and temper it with consideration and kindness. Matt was a firm adherent to the Golden Rule as it applied in life, as it applied in the duties of his office. It will be a long time before Uniontown recovers from the shock of the death of one of its favorite sons- Matthew Allen.

DIED, at New Salem, on the 13th (or 18th) inst. and in the 63d year of her age, Mrs. Sarah Allison, consort of William Allison, Esq., and mother-in-law to Mr. Black the present Secretary of the Commonwealth.
Mrs. A. has been long and favorably known as a lady of unassuming, retiring manners; of a reading, thinking, and discriminating cast of mind. Eleven months previous to her decease, she united with Presbyterian church of Dunlaps Creek, on a profession of her faith in Christ. Distrustful of herself and assured of the sufficiency of her Redeemer, and of his willingness to save to the uttermost all who come to God by faith in his name, she cast all her care on him and found peace through the blood of the cross. It pleased her Heavenly Father to try her long in the furnace of affliction.—This trial, we trust, was sanctified to her spiritual benefit; and made the presence of Christ, the great Physician, the more dear to her heart; and wrought out for her a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. Pastoral interviews for conversation and prayer, she seemed to enjoy with spiritual delight.—Once she exclaimed, "O what a happy day this has been to me, I shall never forget it." Shortly before her peaceful and happy death she said to the writer, "I have had a sore conflict of soul since I last saw you: but all my trust is in my savior." An afflicted husband and four daughters mourn the loss of her society on earth; but not without hope that she rests from her afflictions in her Father's house of many mansions.
O sweet abode of holiness, and love, and peace.
Where pilgrims, freed from toil and pain, are bless'd. S. W.
