THE VICTIMS
Something About Them, Their Families,
Homes and Circumstances

The unfortunate men were residents of Dunbar and vicinity. They were chiefly of English Irish and Scotch descent, no Hungarians or Poles having ever been employed at these works. Many of them owned their neat little homes and those who were not native born were naturalized. They were a frugal honest body of workmen, and were above the average miners in intelligence and thrift. They were personally known to nearly every resident of Dunbar and vicinity. Almost all were married and fathers of families ranging in numbers from one to ten children. The following gives more in detail the condition of the families left fatherless by the sad calamity.

Patrick Cahill, aged 45 years, had a family of six children, all small, and his widow is left unsupported. William Cahill, a brother, made his home with Patrick, which was near the mine.

bullet Bernard J. CALLAGHAN died in 1906. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(61)

07/27/1906 The Daily Courier, Connellsville Pennsylvania:
B. J. CALLAGHAN DIES SUDDENLY.
The Well Known Mining Expert Expires at Midnight Monday.
Served Thirteen Years As a State Mine Inspector and Was Widely Known Throughout the Connellsville Coke Region ---A Sketch of His Active Career--
Bernard J. Callaghan, one of the most widely known mining expert in Western Pennsylvania, died suddenly at his home on Prospect street at mid night Monday. Mr. Callaghan had been in bad health for several weeks; [?] was his condition considered dangerous. Two weeks; ago he complained more than usual and since then he had not been away from his home much. Monday afternoon Dr. J. C. McClenathan was called, but then there were no indications that dissolution was to come so suddenly. During the early hours of the night, Mr. Callaghan was very ill, but at no time was death expected. Up until five minutes before his death he was conscious. Death came peacefully and with scarcely a warning. The retired mining expert passed away as if falling into a deep sleep. Kidney and stomach trouble were the cause of his death.
Thirty-eight years ago Mr. Callaghan married Elizabeth Monahan. Twelve children were born to this union, eight of whom are living. They are Mrs. John Hughes, Pittsburgh; Mrs. Louis Neld, , Frossburg, Md; M. J. Callaghan, Masontown; Mrs. Joseph Soisson, Vincent, Margaret, Veronica, Alfonse, Connellsville. William Callaghan of Reverse is a brother.
Bernard Callaghan was 62 yrs. old. He was born in Scotland, the son of Laughlin and Margaret Callaghan. His parents died when he was quite young and he was thus early thrown upon the world and his own resources of which in later live he made a life.
He had been a miner and a mining expert all his life. When he was eight years old he went to work in the mines of Scotland. As he grew through boyhood he thrived and grew strong on the hard work. He also took account of the science there is in mining and when he came to this country in 1869, he was at expert. For some time he was employed at Larimer in Westmorland county. Then he became foreman at Alpsville on the Youngstown river. That was 28 years ago. Later Mr. Callaghan was a mine foreman at the Monongahela City on the Monongahela river. Twenty years ago Mr. Callaghan came to the Connellsville region as mine foreman at [?]. His first commission as a mine foreman was in 1885, immediately after the law was passed requiring foremen of mines to be licensed by the State.
Mr. Callaghan spent thirteen years as a State Mine Inspector. He held four commissions. After serving as foreman at Trotter he was appointed to the unexpired term of J. M. Wall of the Tenth district, with head quarters at Clearfield. He wrote the report of 1888 for that district and in 1889 came back to the Connellsville region to become mine foreman at Leisenring No. 3. Later he was transferred to Leisenring No. 2. While holding this position Mr. Callaghan took the State examination in [?] received an appointment for the Fifth district and served continuously from that time until May 15, 1905, as inspector of Fifth and Ninth districts. The Ninth district was made out of a part of the old Fifth, and the Eleventh, another new district, took in part of the old Fifth.
Mr. Callaghan had seen and been present afterwards at many mine tragedies both in the mines of Scotland and this country. He was at the Hill Farm Maumoth and Fogelson explosions in advisory and official capacity. He was also at Leisenring N. 2 Youngstown and Port Royal when miners lost their lives in explosions. At many of those places his plans and [?] for the recovery of bodies and checking fire started by the explosions solved difficult problems.
Mr. Callaghan resigned as State Mine Inspector a year ago last April . In May of that year he was given a significant testimonial at the dinner in Connellsville by mining experts from all over Western Pennsylvania when he was presented with a hand made gold watch and chain.

Beatrice Walker Lilley CAMPBELL (1920-2008)

   Beatrice Walker Lilley Campbell, 88, of Uniontown, Fayette County, Pa., passed away on August 5, 2008, in her home. "Bea" was born on February 7, 1920, in New York City, N.Y. She has been a resident of Pennsylvania since 1926. She lived in Uniontown since 1951. Bea was the daughter of the late Joseph Waldman Walker and Helen Huda Waldman Walker. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her only sister, Margaret Walker, in 1998. She graduated from Georges Township High School, in Fayette County, Pa., and attended Waynesburg Center, in Greene County, Pa., for courses in Social Studies. She spent 28 years in the work force, the last 14 as a medical secretary to the late well known pediatrician, Dr. John D. Sturgeon, Jr. When he retired in 1975, she turned her attention to doing volunteer work as a very active Art Club member, a Hospice volunteer for seven years, 12 years as a Reach to Recovery volunteer for the Cancer Society, and in the Baby Talk Program at the Uniontown Hospital. Bea became a member of Touchstone Center for Crafts, in Farmington, Fayette County, Pa., in 1982, (as did her husband). She "built" the Gallery Store at Touchstone and manned it much of the time over a 17 year period, for which she was awarded the VITA-2007 Award, given by Dominion Energy Company, of Pittsburgh, Pa. It was coordinated by WQED, the Pittsburgh TV and radio station. She had Emeritus status at Touchstone. The Uniontown BPW named her "Woman of the Year" in 1999. Bea was an avid reader before her vision failed and had a great love of semantics and languages. She wrote poetry and often wrote a poem rather than sending a greeting card. At Touchstone, she took quite a few classes in knitting, quilting, nature painting, weaving, and basketry. She had her own private project of calling widows and the elderly and kept in close touch with several on a daily basis. Bea is survived by her faithful and dedicated husband, James M. Campbell, whom she married in 1963. She is also survived by her son, Monty Lilley, of Menallen Township, Uniontown, Pa.; two granddaughters: Tina L. Embrey and husband, Ron, of Mt.

Benjamin CAMPBELL (1749-1843)

BENJAMIN CAMPBELL

   Benjamin Campbell was an old fashioned gentleman from Hagerstown, Md. He wore his hair in a queqe, knee britches and low shoes with silver buckles. He was a Silversmith by trade; he was also in charge of the Post Office for 30 years. He came to Uniontown in 1790. His son John owned and occupied much of the ground now occupied by the 1st National Bank. John was the builder of the old round corner.

Notes from contributor:
   Born–February 5, 1749
   Died–October 24, 1843 in Uniontown
   Married–January 30, 1775
   Spouse–Mary Adair Campbell
   Children–Margaret, John, Thomas, James, William, Nancy, Mary,
    Samuel Young, Benjamin, Dr. Hugh Campbell, Elizabeth and Sarah


Local newspaper, Fayette County, PA, date unknown


   Benjamin Campbell died suddenly at his resident in Uniontown, on Sunday evening of the 24 ult., in the 95th year of his age. The great age which Mr. Campbell has attained, and his having lived in this place ever since it propriety be called a town, may make it proper to give a more Extended notice of him. He was born in Chester County, New London Crossroads in this state in the year 1749, where he received his early education and religious instruction under the care of Dr. Allison, a celebrated Presbyterian Clergyman of that place to Hagerstown, Maryland, where he learned the silversmith business and married. He removed from Hagerstown to this place in 1792, where he continued to reside until his death. Mr. Campbell's physical health was remarkably fine. He scarcely knew what disease was, and it is a fact worthy of note that as long as he was a resident of Uniontown he was never known to go to bed in the day time but once, which was two days before his death, and then it was only through the urgent request of his friends that he consented to do so. On the day he died he did not appear to be suffering any pain, or have any particular disease. It was the gradual burning out of the vapor of life. Even after death, his body seemed to resist for an uncommonly long time the usual approaches of decay. Through life he was distinguished for evenness of temper, sobriety, and regular habits and it is perhaps to this circumstance as much as to his robust constitution that he was indebted for almost uninterrupted health which he enjoyed. "A green old age was his, for in his youth, he had not bowed to passion, nor had drunk the drugs she mingles in her circean cup." He was a model of industry, and so devoted was he to his shop that it's labors constituted his amusement long after it ceased to be necessary for his support; and up until the time of his death he could do as good work, even to the most delicate machinery of a watch, as when in the prime of life. Attachment to family and home were never more strongly displayed than in him. It is said he never saw the stone bridge west of town but twice since its erection 22 years ago. He was never out of the county since he lived in it, but on one occasion, many years ago he made a trip to Morgantown on business. He was never out of Brownsville, though but 12 miles distant; nor at Connellsville not any of the villages of our county. He has been frequently two years at a time without being out of the limits of the borough and sometimes many years have elapsed without him being ten steps from his door except when he went to church or election. Yet he was very fond of company, and always conversed with great freedom and intelligence, on the evening of Saturday before his death, he sat in the moonlight before his door, conversing with a friend about "olden times" until quite late, and appeared as vigorous as he had been in a long time. He was uniform in his attendance of pubic worship, except during the last three years of his life, when was rather too feeble to bare the fatigue of walking. He but rarely missed attending the public auction, and never missed voting in a presidential election, since the foundation of the government. During the Revolutionary War he performed a short military service tour in New Jersey, which under one of the Acts of Congress would have entitled him to a pension. He always refused however to present his claim to Congress, on the grounds that no man should ask a pension. However his claim might be if he was able to live without it. He was familiar with incidents which occurred in town, during the stay here of troops sent out by General George Washington to quell the Whiskey Rebellion and he related as an incident of that time, that Alexander Hamilton who commanded the expedition, frequently came to his shop to converse with him. He was the only man he ever laid aside his work to talk to. He kept a diary of the weather for the past 30 years and never missed a day. He dressed in old Revolutionary style with straight coat and breeches, shoe and knee buckles, and cued hair and always the most scrupulous attention to neatness and order. He had a remarkable taste for reading and this grew rather than abated with the advance of years. He read from the bible with most exemplary diligence, and always regularly from beginning to end. Not long before his death he mastered a large encyclopedia and read d'Aubigoe History of the Reformation, twice without stopping. The papers he principally read "We The Presbyterian" and The National Intelligencer, which he continued to do until the last. He had in all twelve children, eight of them were born in Hagerstown and four in this place. There are still seven living. His wife died about eight years ago, also at an advanced age. He was an exemplary man and a Christian, he lived in undisturbed friendship with all who knew him and it is believed that he had not an enemy behind him, or one who can say with the truth that he was ever injured by him in word or deed.

Judge Edward CAMPBELL Stone  (1838-1912)

JUDGE CAMPBELL,
OLDEST LAWYER,
IS FOUND DEAD
Veteran Member of Fayette
County Bar Passes Away.
ATTENDED CHURCH LAST NIGHT
For Past 40 Years He Had Boarded at
Home of Mrs. Elizabeth Chick and
It Was There That He Died; Once
Served a Term on the County Bench.

Special to The Courier.

  UNIONTOWN, Dec. 23—— Judge Edward Campbell, the oldest member of the Fayette County Bar Association, was found dead this morning at the home of Mrs. Elizabeth Chick, where he had boarded for the past 40 years. Judge Campbell was 74 years old. Last night he attended church and was apparently in good health. His death was discovered after he had failed to appear for breakfast. Judge Campbell was the son of Dr. Hugh and Rachel Lyon Campbell, and was born in Uniontown, July 24, 1838. After a preliminary education in private schools, he attended for six years Madison College then newly founded in Uniontown. He began the study of law under the late Nathaniel Ewing. He was then admitted to the bar and began practice in Uniontown. With the start of the Civil War he answered President Lincoln’s call for three month men in April 1861. He re-enlisted for three years in Company F, 85th regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer infantry, serving until November 22, 1864, when he was honorably discharged. Entered as a private, he was mustered out as a Lieutenant-Colonel, receiving his last promotion on October 16, 1863. He saw hard service with the Army of the Potomac and earned his promotions by gallant and meritorious conduct. With the war’s close, he returned to his interrupted law practice, was admitted to all State and Federal courts and soon established a large practice. In 1866, the death of Samuel A. Gilmore left a vacancy on the county bench, and Attorney Campbell was appointed Presiding Judge to fill the unexpired term. He was then the youngest judge in the State, being only 28 years old. He continued his law practice all his life and secured an enviable reputation as a learned and skillful lawyer. He was keenly interested in politics. He was a Republican and a member of the Presbyterian church. The Fayette County Bar Association met this afternoon and appointed committees to have charge of the funeral. Those in charge of the arrangements are A. D. Cooper, A. C. Hagan, D. M. Hertzog, M. M. Cochran and H. F. Detwiler. The committee to procure an emblem are D. W. McDonald, R. W. Playford, R. W. Dawson, George B. Jeffries and W. J. Sturkis. The resolutions will be drawn by R. P. Hopwood, W. E. Crow, A. P. Austin, R. P. Kennedy and H. S. Dumbauld.

Gresham And Wiley, 1889: Biographical & Portrait Cyclopedia, Fayette Co, Pa.


   Judge Edward Campbell, a leading lawyer of Western Pennsylvania, is a son of Dr. Hugh Campbell. Dr. Hugh Campbell was born at Uniontown, May 1, 1795, and was educated at Jefferson College, Cannonsburg, Penna., afterwards read medicine and was graduated from the Medical Department of the University of Pennsylvania in 1818. From 1815 to 1840 he was located at Uniontown in the practice of medicine and was one of the leading physicians of Fayette county. He was a fine scholar, a good linguist; ordained elder of the Presbyterian church at Uniontown, and was until his death regarded as one of the pillars of that church. Dr. Campbell, Rev. A. G. Fairchild, Jesse Evans and Judge Nathaniel Ewing were the pioneers of the temperance movement of sixty years ago in Fayette county which banished whiskey from the merchant's counter, the side board and the harvest field. In 1860 he retired from the active practice of medicine and from 1865 to 1868 was Warden of the Western Penitentiary at Allegheny City. His father, Benjamin Campbell, was from the famed highlands of Scotland, a silversmith by trade, who came to Uniontown in 1780. A clock made by himself over a hundred years ago is now in his grandson's law office. The maiden name of Dr. Campbell's wife was Rachel Lyon, a native of Baltimore, a daughter of Samuel Lyon, born at Carlisle, Penna., and the latter's father came to this country from Ireland. Judge Edward Campbell, born at Uniontown July 24, 1838, was a law student of Judge Nathaniel Ewing, and admitted to the Fayette county bar September 5, 1859. He received his education at John Lyon's Academy and Madison College at Uniontown. When Beauregard's circling batteries opened fir upon Fort Sumter in 1861 and the country realizing the fact that a terrible war was at hand, among the first who responded to the call of the federal government for troops was Judge Campbell. He volunteered as a private in April, 1861, and served in camp only during that summer. At the expiration of this time he enlisted as a private in the 85th Pennsylvania, was promoted October 21, 1861, to second lieutenant, to captain May 15, 1862, major, September 6, 1862, became lieutenant colonel of his regiment, October 16, 1863, and was honorably discharged from the service November 22, 1864. He served three and a half years in the war and won an enviable war record that reflected no discredit on the firmness and bravery of that wonderful Scotch Irish race of which he is descended. At the close of the war, he returned to Uniontown, opened an office for the practice of law, where he has acquired a large and lucrative practice and is recognized as an able lawyer. On the death of Judge Gilmore in May, 1873, Governor Hartranft appointed him President Judge of the District for the short period of less than one year. He left the Bench carrying with him the good will and respect of all for his kindness and courtesy in discharge of his high duties as judge. His speeches made in important cases are of the characteristic force and ability and as a constitutional lawyer he stands in the front rank of leading lawyers of Pennsylvania. Courtly, suave in manner, pure in conversation, and firm in his convictions of right, he is regarded deservedly highly as a Christian gentleman and scholar.

Eugene CAMPBELL ( -1908)

DISASTER IN MINE
NEAR BROWNSVILLE
One Killed and Five Injured
When Dynamite
Explodes
OTHERS HAVE NARROW ESCAPE

  BROWNSVILLE, Nov. 20—(Special)— Eugene Campbell, aged 40, was instantly killed and five others seriously injured today as a result of a dynamite explosion at Simpson works near here. The explosion took place this morning at 1 o’clock, in one of the shafts being sunk by W. S. Patterson for the Union-Connellsville Coke Company, of which J. R. Gray, J. H. Lynn and William Allison are the principal owners. The injured men are:
   LUTHER PAYNE, colored, 35 years, left knee dislocated and mangled. Will be amputated.
   WILLIAM PRINGLE, colored, cut about head and seriously bruised.
   E. E. WILLIAMS, colored, shoulder dislocated.
   WILLIAM WOMACK, colored, foot burned and bruised.

   There were four other men in the shaft who escaped when the explosion occurred. They were R. Mayo, Wm. Grayson, William Miller, and Jesse Burke. The men are working on two shafts of 12 hours each and last night at 8 o’clock three blasts were prepared and exploded. Nitroglycerine was used and it is supposed that in taking up the buckets of slate a portion of the charges were left in them and as they reached the point where the majority of workmen were employed they let go. Positive statements are made by the workmen of last evening that their blasts exploded. Eugene Campbell, the man who was killed in the disaster, resided at Lemont, where he leaves a wife and three children. The other injured were removed to the hospital, where they are being treated. The plant is located but a short distance from the Dunlap-Connellsville coke plant owned by local capitalists.

JURY FAILS TO FIX
ACCIDENTS CAUSE
Investigation into Explosion at Simpson
Mine By Coroner Does Not
Throw Light Upon Affair.

   An inquest into the death of Eugene Campbell, who was killed in an explosion at a shaft in Simpson mines, alone the Monongahela railroad, failed to fix cause of accident. A mass of evidence was submitted regarding the explosion but it could not be determined, what was the real cause of the accident. Testimony was given that a blast had been fired at 8 o’clock on Thursday evening and that the accident occurred on Friday morning, and the general opinion was that some unexploded nitroglycerine became mixed with the muck which was being raised in buckets. After a brief discussion on the explosion the jury, composed of M. A. Kiefer, S. E. Frock, J. S. Albright, A. J. Bowers, E. A. Hibbs and S. J. Morrow, returned the following verdict: “From the evidence we find that Eugene Campbell came to his death as a result of an explosion in a new shaft at Simpson, Friday morning about 1 o’clock, the cause of the explosion unexplained by the testimony of the witnesses.” Coroner Harry J. Bell and Deputy Coroner George C. Evans had charge of the inquest.

J. W. Campbell Fatally
Hurt as Cars Collide
New Salem Man Thrown to Highway
In Collision; Revere Youth
Is Hit and Run Victim
2 WRECKS AT SEARIGHTS

   Heavy traffic Saturday and Sunday took its usual toll of automobile accidents, causing one death, injury to 17 and resulting in 34 arrests by members of the Uniontown Sub station of the State Highway Patrol. Two of the injured are in hospitals in a serious condition.

   J. W. Campbell, aged 46, of New Salem, was fatally injured Saturday afternoon when a truck in which he was riding with Mrs. Campbell and which was being driven by a son, Russell J. Campbell, aged 18, is alleged to have been struck by an automobile being driven by William M. Johnson of Beeson Works. Both machines were traveling west on the National Pike. At Rocks Works, Campbell started to turn left into the side road and Johnson in an effort to miss the truck cut to the left. His left front wheel struck the truck. The automobile turned over in the ditch while the force of the impact knocked Mr. Campbell, who was riding on the right of the front seat of the truck, to the highway. He received lacerations of the left ear and a fractured skull. He died in the Uniontown Hospital Sunday night, May 8, 1931, at 8:40 o’clock from the injuries. State Highway Patrolman John Finell investigated the accident. He received two versions. One was that Campbell failed to signal a left turn and the other that he did signal the turn and that the automobile struck the rear end of the truck. All three occupants of the truck and Mr. Johnson and his companion, C. R. Huston, of Uniontown, were badly shaken up in the collision. No arrests have been made pending a further investigation.

Article continues concerning other accidents.

John CAMPBELL ( -1905)

SCOTTDALE BOY KILLED BY STREET CAR

John Campbell, Aged Nine Years, Run Down by Mt. Pleasant
Car at About 6 O’Clock Thursday Afternoon.
RAN IN FRONT OF WHEELS
And Distance Was Too Short for
Motorman Durie to Stop His Car.
Death Was Instantaneous, Wheels
Passing Over His Chest

  Scottdale, Sept. 15— The first fatal accident of the West Penn Railways Company in the borough occurred when John, the 9-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Campbell of Fifth avenue, had his life instantly crushed out by car No. 203, in charge of Motorman A. Durie and Conductor A. D. Barnhart, going south, at Broadway and Market street, at six o’clock last evening. In the grimness of the awful tragedy there is the mournful comfort that death was instant, and not prolonged by any sufferings so far as human knowledge may indicate. Chief of Police William Longanecker was at Broadway and Pittsburg street on his way to supper and saw two cars, the one from Mr. Pleasant to Old Meadow, and the Greensburg and Connellsville car near together and a crowd gathering around one car. He hurried to the scene and on the track behind the Mt. Pleasant car saw some bleeding object. “What’s that?” he exclaimed. “It’s that little boy’s heart,” Quavered one of the group about the car. The first impact of the car had forever silenced the tiny heart and brought instant passage to another world. Pushing through the crowd the officer found the mangled body of the child under the rear wheels of the front truck, and wedged under them. Joseph McIlvaine was holding the child’s head and with his handkerchief and a newspaper protected it from the filth of the street. Dr. O. C. Engle, in front of whose office the tragedy took place, was there with John Graffius, people who had been near, and the trembling occupants of the car. Motorman Durie was wiping the tears from his eyes, and Conductor Barnhart was shaking from the nervous strain, as was nearly everyone else. “Can’t they back the car off the body?” asked one excitedly. “The child would never feel it, but it would look cruel, and he would only be more mangled,” said another. A jack, was brought and the car lifted while the child’s body was tenderly pulled from beneath the wheels.

   The car had struck him fairly in about the waist and body, arms and legs were crushed in an ugly way. The face was somewhat bruised and identification was then and for some time after puzzling. “It’s Eddie Campbell from Browntown,” said one excitedly. “No, it’s Donald Leasure,” said another equal positiveness. At this a small lad in the crowd of boys pressing together indignantly exclaimed, “It ain’t either. I know it ain’t me,” at the same time feeling himself to assure his mind that his body was still existent. The little speaker was Donald Leasure. Eddie Campbell, aged about eight, was also found in the crowd and stoutly said that his brother, Jonnie, was at home, and he knew that both he and his older brother were all right. For some reason he did not get a full look at the face of the victim. He was told to hurry home and let his mother know that he was all right for fear the report would also reach her that the victim was Eddie Campbell. But the thoughtful precaution was unavailing for when Eddie reached home, firm in the conviction that Johnnie was still there, his mother, at his story, wa a quick perception, knew that her home had been bereft. For Johnnie had left the house for town a little while before. The mother fainted at the dreadful news, and Dr. J. P. Strickler was hurriedly called to administer to the grief stricken woman. Dr. Engle and Mr. McIlvaine carried the little body to the mortuary of Owens & Ferguson. Policeman Longanecker followed keeping the crowd back. Within a few minutes the street in front of the undertaking establishment was crowded with anxious people, while many sought the alley behind. This continued to 7:30 when the body had been prepared for burial.

   Mr. Peter S. Campbell, near whose house the accident occurred, was called and identified the child as his grandson. William S. Campbell, an uncle, also identified the body. The sad news was communicated to the father, Charles Campbell, who has charge of the butcher shop of the Union Supply Company at Morgan station and he hurried home. His body was prepared for burial and was taken home last night. The funeral will probably be held tomorrow morning at nine o’clock from the Catholic church.

   Coroner C. A. Wynne came down from Greensburg and went to Browntown to view the body. On his return he held the inquest in the offices of Justice of the Peace Henry C. Hubbs at 10:30 o’clock. Justice Hubbs was foreman and the other members of the jury were Charles H. Eicher, Thomas J. Diskin, Jesse S. Cook, William Eberhart and Albert L. Porter. A. Durie, the motorman of car No. 203, a resident of Mt. Pleasant, testified that he was on his way from Mt. Pleasant to Old Meadow at about 5:55 last evening. He saw the boy run off the curb at Market street, when the car, as the motorman supposed was about six feet from the point the boy left the curb. The boy apparently turned to go back but fell in front of the car, the front wheel of which ran over him. Durie saw no other boy at the time and stopped the car as quickly as he could, but it dragged the boy, he thought, near a car length. Durie said he had sounded the gong as he came out Broadway. Conductor A. O. Barnhart, also of Mt. Pleasant, testified that after leaving Pittsburg street he had gone inside the car to collect the fares and was collecting the first one when the car suddenly stopped, and on hurrying out, found that they had struck a boy. John Graffius, near whose clothing store the accident happened, testified that he saw the car pass, and saw two small boys running down Market street, and the foremost one fell beneath the car, but whether the boy saw the car and was trying to hold back or tripped, Mr. Graffius could not say. He wondered that the motorman had seen the boy at all as to Mr. Graffius’ eye it seemed as if the boy dived under the front platform of the car. The jury brought in a verdict of accidental death, attaching no blame to those in charge of car No. 203.

JOHN MORGAN CAMPBELL

   John Morgan Campbell was born June 15, 1850, at his father’s farm in Dunbar township, Fayette county, Pa. His parents were Emanuel Campbell and Lydia Morgan Campbell, widely known in their day and respected and honored for their sterling character. Emanuel Campbell was also born in Dunbar township; this branch of the Campbell family early became and still remains one of the strong moral forces of Fayette county. Emanuel Campbell removed from Dunbar township when his son, John, was eight years of age. Emanuel Campbell was a strong religious character and left his imprint on his son. He was one of the organizers of Pleasant View Presbyterian church in Menallen township and was its leading religious spirit and now lies buried in the little church yard of the church he helped to found. The deep piety of his parents so impressed their son, John, that he united with the Pleasant View congregation at the early age of 16 years. From the age of 13 to the time of his death he had been active in church work and uncompromising in moral rectitude. Mr. Campbell grew up on his father’s farm, attending public schools and completing his education at Waynesburg college.

   September 20, 1871, he married Lydia Miller and continued to reside on his father’s farm for three years, when he removed to Hopwood. At Hopwood he engaged in the mercantile business and was appointed postmaster there. His ambition and ability requiring a wider field, he removed to Uniontown in 1896. He became one of the incorporators of the Campbell-Hathaway Company shoe store and for many years conducted the leading shoe store in Uniontown. He retired from the mercantile business January 1, 1910, and since that time until confined to his home by sickness was interested in his son’s business at the Tri-State Garage. When Mr. Campbell removed to Hopwood he transferred his membership in the Pleasant Valley to the Cumberland Presbyterian church of Uniontown, now known as the Third Presbyterian church, where he had served as elder for 30 years. He saw this church grow from a membership of two or three hundred to seventeen hundred. His heart was in his church and it was with pride he watched it grow in numbers an influence for good. His conservative and wise counsel had always been a power not only in his church but in the community in which he lived. He carried over from the past these sterling traits of character possessed by the pioneers who built so well the foundation of our government.

   He died at his home, 28 Union street, Uniontown, at 12:20 a.m. Saturday, May 22, 1926, after a lingering sickness of three years and four months, mourned by all who knew him. During his long illness he never lost faith. All things were well with him. He left to survive him his lifetime helpmate, Lydia M. Campbell, who has been a true life companion, loved and honored by all who knew her. They together made a home, led a life and raised a family that is the ideal and pride of American citizenship. He also left to survive him two sons and one daughter, Rella M. Campbell of the Tri- State garage, Clarence D. Campbell in the insurance business, both of Uniontown, and Mary F. Shaw, wife of John Shaw, of Pittsburgh, Pa. One son, Ira F. Campbell, died in 1909. Four sisters survive, Mrs. J. W. Frasher and Mrs. M. B. Porter of Corsica, Pa., Mrs. Stella Ford of Connellsville and Mrs. H. E. Gardner of Uniontown. One brother survives, W. H. Campbell of Grove City. Five grandchildren have brightened his years of confinement to his home. The funeral will take place from Mr. Campbell’s late home, 28 Union street, at 2:30 p.m., Monday, May 24, with his pastor, Dr. E. A. Holt, officiating. The pallbearers will be W. H. Moore, J. S. Newcomer, A. J. Stentz, Dr. J. S. Hackney, W. J. Jacobs, A. A. Webb, G. Carl Areford and J. B. Adams.

John W. CAMPBELL Stone  (1874-1921)

J. W. CAMPBELL
SUCCUMBS IN
ASHLAND, PA.

   John W. Campbell, division engineer for the H. C. Frick Coke company, and one of the most prominent business men of this city, died suddenly Thursday morning at 7 o’clock in Ashland, Pa., where he and Mrs. Campbell had gone a day previous from Atlantic City to visit her old home. Mr. Campbell suffered an attack of influenza several years ago from which he never fully recovered. He was a patient in the St. Francis hospital, Pittsburgh, for 12 weeks in the early part of the year and returned home apparently improved. After convalescing for ten days he and Mrs. Campbell left for Atlantic City where they remained until they went to Ashland Wednesday. Mr. Campbell was in the best of spirits after his arrival Wednesday and retired in apparently good health but at 4:30 o’clock he suffered an attack with his heart and became unconscious and never rallied. Word of his death came as a distinct shock to him many friends in this county. Mr. Campbell was born in Shenandoah about 45 years ago and resided there until a young man.

He is thought to be dying. The first words that the LaBelle Coke Company received of the shooting was at 6:20 when a sister of Campbell’s and a brother of Mrs. Campbell appeared at the office and notified Bookkeeper W. C.

Local Youth Believed Airplane Victim

WILLIAM CANTON AND CHUM
NAMED AS PASSENGERS

Three Americans Carried To Flaming Death In
Crash Of Huge Airliner Near Brussels
WAS TOURING EUROPE

   William Canton, 23, prominent Uniontown college student, and his traveling companion from Pittsburgh, were listed among the dead yesterday afternoon when a Dutch commercial airliner crashed at Hal, Near Brussels, Belgium. All 16 occupants of the plane, three of whom were Americans, were carried to flaming death as the crack airliner from the Netherlands, plunged into a potato field near Brussels.

   Cable reports from the Belgium city said that the three Americans killed in the crash were Canton and his college chum, Milton Gilbert Goldbloom, 5846 Darlington Road, Pittsburgh, and Benjamin F. Mun, 38, wealthy oil company executive, of Long Beach, Cal. When the air transport crashed into flames after an explosion in midair, its ten passengers and four crew members including a stewardess were killed instantly. The ship left Amsterdam yesterday morning and crashed on a flight to Paris after having landed at the Evere Airport, in Brussels.

   Canton, a son of Mrs. Philip Canton, 96 North Beeson avenue, and his chum, Goldbloom, had sailed for Europe, June 16, on the Normandie. They had planned to go to Italy where William Canton contemplated completing his studies in dramatics. The two youths spent two years at Carnegie Tech, Pittsburgh, and this past June had graduated from the School of Dramatics at Columbia university in New York City. Mrs. Goldbloom, mother of the Pittsburgh youth, said last night that she knew the two youths were traveling together on their European tour. After arriving in London they took a plane to Paris. Another aerial adventure took them from Paris to Switzerland. They were devotees to air transportation. Mickey Paulo, of this city, a close acquaintance of William Canton, and other friends and relatives had received letters from the youth saying that he had enjoyed several long air trips in Europe. He wrote that he intended to go to Italy after visiting Switzerland, Belgium and other points. The Canton family here said William had planned future study in dramatics in Italy. He was a brilliant student and young dramatist. He was a member of the graduating class of 1933 at Uniontown Senior high school.

   Airline officials announced last night, The Associated Press was informed, that their chief technical advisor in Brussels said he presumed the gas tank in the left wing of the airplane exploded while the ship was flying at a height of about 1,000 feet. He believed it glided down and attempted to land, but crashed in the field. The bodies were not immediately identified. Difficulty was experienced in checking the passenger list. However, the names of Canton, Mun and Goldbloom were the three Americans listed among the dead by the airlines company. The others were Europeans, although one passenger was said to have been a Mexican named Trillo.

   Canton’s father, Philip Canton, a well-known local merchant, died last February. A brother, Louis, was fatally injured two years ago in an automobile crash near Fayette City. There are two sisters in the family, Mrs. Jennie Canton Polete and Mrs. John Romeo, of Uniontown, and four brothers, Ralph, Veto, Anthony, and Amal. A brother, Sullivan, died a few years ago.

   Mrs. Canton and Mrs. Goldbloom, mothers of the two youths, when informed by The Herald and Genius that their sons’ names were listed among the dead, immediately communicated with the foreign consulate offices in Washington and sent cablegrams to the airline company at Brussels and to foreign secretaries to furnish details of the disaster. They were informed by attaches in Washington, D. C., that the families could not expect details from them until today.

CANTON REMAINS TO BE
RETURNED HOME FOR BURIAL

Bereaved Family Joins With Parents Of
Pittsburgh Chum In Completing Arrangements
SAILED ON JUNE 16

   The bereaved Canton family in Uniontown, whose son and brother, William Randolph Canton, 23, was killed Wednesday in the crash of a Dutch airliner near Brussels, Belgium, has taken steps to have the body of the popular college student brought back here for burial.

   Mrs. Rose Canton, 69, grief-stricken mother of the youth, said last night she is waiting word from Mrs. Goldbloom, of Pittsburgh, whose son, Milton Gilbert Goldbloom, 22, a school chum of William Canton at Carnegie Tech and also at Columbia university, lost his life in the same tragedy.

   The two mothers have sent word to foreign department attaches at Brussels to have the remains of the two youths sent home together. The Canton family here is not making arrangements for the funeral until definite word has been received of the disposition or condition of the body of the young man.

   Fifteen persons in all were killed when the big commercial airliner plunged to flaming death in a potato field near Brussels. Mrs. Goldbloom told Mrs. Canton last night that she (Mrs. Goldbloom) had been advised that bits of clothing found in the wreckage of the plane bore labels from a Pittsburgh store. Mr. Canton is survived by his mother, two sisters and four brothers. They said every effort will be made to have the remains sent to Uniontown.

   Plummeted thousands of feet into a mass of flames on the ground near Hal, Belgium, William Randolph Canton, 23, of Uniontown, was hurled into eternity just when the world seemed brightest. Members of the Canton family and many hundreds of friends hoped against hope that William was not the “Canton” mentioned as one of 15 victims of the Dutch Airline crash. As bits of information seeped through Wednesday night and Thursday hope faded and finally, about 9 o’clock Thursday morning came two cablegrams which verified suspicions and cast a general pall over the city.

   One from the American consul in Belgium read:
“American consul in Brussels says William Canton of Uniontown killed in airplane accident.”

   Another signed, “Afrsabene” follows:
“Regret to inform you that William Randolph Canton, 93 Beeson avenue, Uniontown, Pa., died in airplane accident.”

   These cablegrams settled beyond any doubt that question of whether one of the vitims was William Canton, one of Uniontown’s best and most favorably known young men. The plane dove to the ground, carring death to 15. With the Uniontown youth was his college mate and close friend, Milton Gilbert Goldbloom, of Pittsburgh. The two had spent several years of companionship and happiness together and together they went to their deaths, writhing in flames which charred the bodies of all victims.

   The future never looked brighter for the two young men. They had completed a course in dramatics at the Columbia university and intended to polish their careers by addition study and experience in Italy. Mr. Canton and his chum left New York, June 16 on the Normandie. From London, they took a plane to Paris and then to Switzerland. They planned to spend the summer in Europe in preparation for brilliant careers which undoubtedly awaited them in the United States.

   Mrs. Goldbloom, mother of the Pittsburgh youth, said last night that she knew the two youths were traveling together on their European tour. After arriving in London they took a plane to Paris. Another aerial adventure took them from Paris to Switzerland. They were devotees to air transportation. Mickey Paulo, of this city, a close acquaintance of William Canton, and other friends and relatives had received letters from the youth saying that he had enjoyed several long air trips in Europe. He wrote that he intended to go to Italy after visiting Switzerland, Belgium and other points.

   The Canton family here said William had planned future study in dramatics in Italy. He was a brilliant student and young dramatist. He was a member of the graduating class of 1933 at Uniontown Senior high school. Canton's father, Philip Canton, a well-known local merchant, died last February. A brother, Louis, was fatally injured two yours ago in an automobile crash near Fayette City. There are two sisters in the family, Mrs. Jennie Canton Poletz and Mrs. John Romeo, of Uniontown, and four brothers, Ralph, Veto, Anthony and Amal. A brother, Sullivan, died a few years ago.

Body Of Uniontown’s Plane Victim
To Be Returned Here Soon

William Canton, Killed In Crash Near Brussels,
Belgium, Being Brought To Family
ARRIVE ABOUT AUGUST 17

   A grief-stricken Uniontown mother will soon claim the broken body of her son who met death in an airplane crash near Brussels, Belgium, while enjoying a European tour—the family gift to him for completing his studies at Columbia university. Mrs. Philip Canton, 96 North Beeson avenue, was notified yesterday by the Dutch Airlines, that the remains of her son, William Randolph Canton, 23, who was one of 14 persons killed when a Netherland airliner fell near Hal, Belgium, last Wednesday, will be shipped from Antwerp, of August 7th.

   The body of the brilliant local student of dramatics and that of his college chum, Milton Goldbloom, of Pittsburgh, who met flaming death in the same plane crash, will be sent to the United States on the S. S. Western Land, of the Red Star Steamship Lines. The steamer is due to arrive in New York on Tuesday, August 17, and the remains of the two victims will be sent immediately to the families.

   Funeral arrangements will be completed by the Canton family after the arrival of the body in Uniontown. Canton spent two years at Carnegie Tech, where he first met young Goldbloom, and then the two young men entered the School of Dramatics at Columbia for a two- year-term. They were graduated from Columbia last June. Their European tour was presented them as a graduation gift from the two respective families. Mrs. Goldbloom visited Mrs. Canton last Sunday. The Uniontown woman, aged 69, has been under the care of a physician since hearing the news of her son’s tragic death.

DIAMOND RING IN CANTON FAMILY HELD DEATH JINX

  UNIONTOWN, Aug. 5.— Does death lurk in the fiery sparkle of the huge diamond ring in the Philip Canton family? At first the ring was owned by Sullivan Canton who died several years ago. At his death it was turned over to Louis Canton who was killed in an automobile wreck and later went to William Canton, a victim of the Dutch airline crash near Brussels, Belgium. The ring was left at home by William when he went on his European tour. It will be sold, members of the family said, as they believe it holds ill luck for them.

PLANE VICTIM’S BODY
RETURNED HERE FOR BURIAL

William Randolph Canton Services This
Afternoon In St. Therese R. C. Church
FUNERAL NOT PRIVATE

   Body of William Randolph Canton, aged 23, brilliant student of the drama, who met tragic death when a Netherlands airliner crashed near Belgium on July 28, came home to its final resting place early this morning. The remains of the graduate of Columbia School of Dramatics and son of Mrs. Rose Canton, 96 North Beeson avenue, arrived in Greensburg at 10:42 last night and were removed to the Minerd funeral home—there to remain until 4 o’clock this afternoon when they will be taken to St. Therese church for solemn funeral services. Rev. Fr. C. H. Ceredini, pastor of St. Therese, will have charge of the final rites for the popular Uniontown youth. Burial will be in Oak Grove cemetery. The services will not be private.

   Accompanying the body of the Uniontown young man was that of his college classmate, Milton Gilbert Goldbloom, of Pittsburgh, who was killed in the same plane crash, which also took the lives of 12 other persons. The bodies of the two chums were shipped together to the United States. Funeral services will be held today in Pittsburgh for young Goldbloom. They had spent two years together in Carnegie Tech and then studied two more years in Columbia university. Their trip to Europe was a graduation present from their two families. It was while the giant commercial airliner was nearing Hal, a few miles from Belgium, that it plunged to earth. The plane did not explode and neither was there a subsequent fire when the craft struck the ground.

   Young Canton had written to his family and friends here that he had contemplated completing his dramatics studies in Rome. In addition to his mother, he leaves two sisters, Mrs. Jennie Polets and Mrs. John Romeo, and four brothers, Ralph, Amyal, Anthony and Veto. Condition of the grief-stricken mother was reported as just fair early this morning. Friends will be received at the Minerd funeral home just prior to removal of the body to the church for the services.

Noted Fayette man dies

By Christine Haines

Athlete, teacher, businessman and philanthropist - Gus Cardarelli wore each of those hats with ease. The Italian immigrant who was once signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers died Monday at the age of 94 (95, if he had died in Italy, Cardarelli would have said.) In two interviews in recent years Cardarelli pointed out to reporters that his age was different depending on the country where it was calculated. "In Italy as soon as you're born, you're 1. Here in America you aren't 1 until you complete your first year," Cardarelli told local historian and writer Glenn Tunney. In any country one would calculate that Cardarelli's life was well spent.

Cardarelli taught for 36 years at Redstone Township High School and Brownsville Area High School. In 1948 Cardarelli opened Gus's Sporting Goods, in Republic, which he, his wife and eventually his children, ran in addition to his teaching and coaching duties. Phil Savini, who served for many years as the president of the Republic Chamber of Commerce, remembers Cardarelli both as a teacher and as a businessman. "He was a great guy. As a teacher, he kept you entertained with his stories from when he was in high school and college and always related them to health," Savini said. "When I was president of the chamber, he was always supportive of the community. No matter what you needed, he was always forthcoming." Cardarelli donated athletic shoes, clothing and other items to whomever requested them, Savini said. "He was also a good friend of the family. He was good friends with my grandparents, as well as with my father and uncles," Savini said. And he always had a story to share.

Cardarelli was only 8-months old (American calculation) when he and his mother left Italy to join his father in America. His father had been working in the Thompson #2 coal mine, in Luzerne Township, Fayette County, Pa. The family moved to Republic, where Cardarelli continued to live for the rest of his life. Cardarelli attended Redstone High School, where he played football, then went on to play at Kansas State. In 1939, Cardarelli returned to Republic to accept a teaching and coaching job at Redstone High School. In 1945, he was offered a contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He even signed that contract, that offered the princely sum of $175 for each regularly scheduled game the team played, but then he realized he had transportation problems getting to the Steelers training camp, then located in Hershey. He decided instead to remain in his stable job at Redstone Township High School, teaching science and health and coaching football, but he kept the single-page contract that he and Art Rooney had signed.

Cardarelli taught until 1975, when he retired at what was by then Brownsville Area High School.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Robert T. Kish Funeral Home, in Republic.

Mayor John D. CARR Stone  (1849-1919)

JOHN D. CARR, MAYOR
OF UNIONTOWN, DIES
AFTER LONG ILLNESS

Had Active Career in State, County
And Municipal Political Circles

   Following a several years’ illness of anemia, John D. Carr, 68 years old, mayor of Uniontown, died at his home in Union street, Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Carr was able to attend to his business until Wednesday of last week when he suffered a chill at his office. From that time his condition gradually grew critical. The deceased was born in old Allegheny City, December 16, 1850, a son of Nicholas and Catherine Burns Carr. He was reared on his father’s farm, of which old Recreation park, Allegheny, was a part. He received his education at the Second ward school, Allegheny, and the grammar schools in that city. Leaving the farm Mr. Carr learned the trade of a marble cutter and became an expert workman in lettering and ornamental construction. Before he had reached his majority he became superintendent of the Pittsburg works of W. W. Wallace company, the largest establishment of the kind in the state. He held this position until the fall of 1873 when he located at Fayette City and established a marble plant. It was destroyed by fire in 1884. The following March, Mr. Carr was elected steward of the Fayette county home. For several years he was chairman of Consolidated Charities of Pennsylvania and was a recognized authority in this work. In 1888 Governor Beaver appointed him a member of the commission to revise the poor laws, but the work of this commission was taken over by the Board of Consolidated Charities of which Mr. Carr was chairman. Following his retirement as steward of the County Home, Mr. Carr again established a business of interior construction and until his death was located in Morgantown street. In 1918 he was elected mayor of Uniontown by the city council, upon the resignation of Mayor Bailey. He was one of the most prominent Masons of the state. More than 20 years he was deputy grand master of the 31st Masonic district. In politics he was a Democrat. The deceased was a trustee of the Uniontown hospital and chairman of the executive board.

   The mayor’s widow and the following children survive: Former Congressman Wooda N. Carr and W. Russell Carr, Uniontown; Dr. John D. Carr, Pittsburg; Charles H. Carr, Weston, W. Va.; Mrs. A. G. Duff, Republic; Mrs. Thomas J. Gearing, Washington, Pa., and Catherine Carr, at home. The funeral will be held from the family residence Thursday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock, with Dr. W. Hamilton Spence of the First Presbyterian church of Uniontown, officiating and in charge of Fayette Lodge, No. 328, Free Masons, with a Knight Templar escort.

Lt. Walter Curtis CARR Stone  (1921-1943)

Lieut. Carr
Dies in Action
Over Germany

   Lieutenant Walter C. Carr, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Carr of Dunbar, was killed in action during a bombing raid over Germany, according to word the parents received from the War Department after it had been transmitted by the German government through the International Red Cross. A co-pilot on a Flying Fortress which participated in many raids over German- occupied Europe and who survived the record raid early last fall when 60 Allied bombers were lost and had been reported missing in action. Later came confirmation of his death. A graduate of Dunbar Township High School, Lieutenant Carr enlisted in the Army Air Corps, January 7, 1942. He was graduated from the pilot training school with highest honors as a member of a class of more than 500. Lieutenant Carr had been awarded an Air Medal only a short time before he was reported missing in action. It has been learned that pilot of the same Fortress which Carr was co-pilot is a prisoner of war. Members of the family had sought to keep news of the youth being missing in action from his mother because of her delicate health. However, when the telegram confirming his death was delivered at the Carr home, she answered the door.

James CARTER ( -1871)

   James Carter, Esq., an old citizen of North Union township, died rather suddenly, last Saturday night. Mr. Carter was about as well as usual on Saturday, though he has been in ill health for some years in consequence of a stroke of palsy. He was an upright, honest man—stern and unfaltering in his opinions. What he believed to be right, he would maintain at all hazards, and if he committed any errors, we are sure they were of the head and not of the heart. He was a man of gigantic proportions, weighing usually 280 pounds. He was a consistent member of the Redstone Baptist Association of which the Rev. Elder Adah Winnett of Franklin township is a minister. The deceased leaves a considerable Estate unencumbered, for we know he strenuously adhered to the scriptural injunction to, “Owe no man any thing.” His remains were followed by a large concourse to the Baptist grave yard, on last Monday. He was a good husband, and a kind father and an accommodating neighbor.

FIVE MEN KILLED IN A MINE EXPLOSION

At the Taylor Shaft Which Is Being Sunk Half a Mile
From Searight’s on the National Pike

CAUSE OF ACCIDENT UNDECIDEED

Open Torch About the New Shaft or
Ignition of Pocket of Fire Damp
Possible—Four Men injured, One of
Them Fatally—Mine Inspector and
Coroner at Scene of Explosion

Five men were instantly killed and four injured in an explosion at the Taylor shaft of the Taylor Coal & Coke Company, half a mile from Searights on the National Pike, near Uniontown, at five o’clock this morning. Mine Inspector I. G. Roby of the Fifth district thinks the accident due to a gas explosion.

The dead are:
John Carter, colored, Fredricksburg, Va.
Walter Williams, North Carolina
Samuel Davis, a Hungarian
Charles Spatka, a Slav.
Michael Chodno, a Slav.

George Thomas, foreman in charge of the work at the time of the explosion if fatally injured. It was not thought that he could live during the journey from the shaft to the Uniontown Hispotal, where he was taken at 10 o’clock. Thomas is a colored man.

The other injured are:
Gabriel Diggs, colored, Prince George County, Maryland
George W. Betts, colored, Cambridge, O.
Casper Eaton, colored, North Carolina

The three latter injured will all recover. They are burned painfully about the head and shoulders. The Taylor mine is down just 94 feet. It is being sunk by Patterson & McNeil, a shaft sinking firm. The coal, which lies at a depth of 200 feet, has not been struck yet. The shift, most of whom were killed, went to work last night at 11 o’clock. They were working on a platform about 20 feet from the mouth of the shaft putting timbers up for a concrete wall. Several of the workmen were about the top of the shaft, while others were on the platform below.

THE DEADLY FIRE DAMP
Claims Eight Victims at the Umpire Mine

OPEN LIGHTS FIRE THE GAS
An Investigation by the Coroner’s Jury Ends in Holding the
MINE OFFICIALS RESPONSIBLE

A Boy Operator Shut Off the Air Current When the Explosion Occurred.

CENES OF EX-citement and death reigned at Brownsville all week. One of the most terrible mine explosions in the history of the Monongahela river coal operations occurred in the Umpire mine of C. L. Snowden & Co., at 8 o’clock Friday morning. Two mine drivers, John Bennett and Harry Hager, were killed instantly and six others, Robert Davidson, John Heiston, Sales Heiston, William Pritchard, John Cartwright and James Bell were suffocated by the after-damp, which destroyed the living air immediately following the explosion. Pritchard was married and resided at West Brownsville. He leaves a wife and seven children. The Heiston’s were brothers, and colored. John Lived at Bridgeport and leaves a widow and two children. John Cartwright leaves a widow and three small children, who reside in Brownsville. The other men were single. Hager lived in Brownsville township and Davidson in a shanty not far from the fatal mine.

   The first information of the explosion came from George Lacy, John Smith, Samuel Meese and James G. Bennett, brother of one of the men killed. They were at work in the mine also, and as soon after the concussion of the explosion as possible they worked their way into the effected district and found the bodies of Bennett and Hager. From appearances it was believed that the drivers had gone into the entry and ignited an accumulation of gas. Open lights were used. Both bodies were burned somewhat, and also showed the effects of the concussion. Later the bodies of the other miners were discovered, in their rooms, where they had succumbed to the fatal lethargy that overtakes the senses when the oxygen has been burned out of mine air. As usual the bodies showed that the miners had not made any struggles. The explosion, as judged from the indications left on the side walls and roof of the mine, was strongest at the face of the heading, leaving the impression that the gas had been liberated at the face of the heading and worked its way out the entry.

   The party named as rescuers were working in an entry not more than 50 feet removed from the heading in which the explosion occurred, but they were uninjured, the air current leaving them pure air. Another group of miners, a little nearer the deadly explosion, heard the force of the gas as it ignited, and immediately started out. They were met by the after-damp and some wished to stop, but an experienced miner named John Ralston urged the men not to stop and finally the party worked its way out to safety. A large force of men volunteered to go into the mines immediately following the announcement that there had been an explosion, and by 11 o’clock A. M. all the bodies had been brought out of the mine. The scenes about the opening were heartrending. A great crowd gathered and many were the anxious faces that crowded about mourning about the loved ones who were known to be in the mine at the time of the explosion, and who were awaited, dead or alive, non knew which. When the accident occurred there were 120 men in the mine and the anxiety did not cease till all had been found. The explosion effects did not cover a wide territory in the mine, and after the eight bodies had been found no more casualties were found.

   Peter F. Smith, Coroner of Fayette county left Uniontown for the seat of the disaster and arrived early upon the scene. The officials of the United Mine Workers sent as their representative at the mine, Frederick Dilcher, from Pittsburg. Dr. Smith empaneled a jury consisting of E. L. Moorhouse, John A. Robinson, Henry Leonard, William L. Lenhart, Fletcher E. Chalfant and W. M. Fisher, who viewed the bodies Friday evening.

   The Coroner’s jury conducted a lengthy and exhaustive inquest over the remains of the victims of the disaster, and rendered the following verdict late Wednesday night:

   We find that John Bennett, John Cartwright, Harry Hagar, Robert Davis, William Pritchard, John and Silas Helston and James Bell came to their death by an explosion of gas in entry 10 of the Umpire mine of Friday, the 23rd of September, 1898, between the hours of 7 and 9 A. M., and our verdict is that had the proper mine officials, whose duty it was to remove the danger that was known to exist, fulfilled their duty, the accident would not have happened.

   During the inquest, at which Robert Brownlee, Chief of the Bureau of Mines was present, it developed that Raymond McCune, aged 13 years, was engaged to operate the fan, and that he had shut off the air current when the explosion occurred. Part of the time the fan was run by Corbin McCune, aged 14 years, the father of the boys starting it each morning.

   John T. Armstrong, formerly fire boss at the Umpire mines, but now employed at South Fork, Pa., said, “On the morning of March 21st, I pronounced the mine unsafe, put up ‘danger’ and told the men to stay out. Pit Boss Underwood said there was no danger in entries 5 and 6 and told the men to go to work.”

Catalano, Stephen T. 67
Uniontown

Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior welcomed his faithful son, Stephen Terry "Ace" Catalano, 67, of Uniontown, into his loving embrace Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012. This man of huge heart and charismatic personality catered in the most selfless manner to his beloved and eternally devoted family. "Terry" was a friend to those in need. He often would help the struggling and the sick with gifts of money, kind words or needed direction. He was a shepherd to his family tirelessly guiding his children with his words of advice, safety reminders, encouragement and steadfast love. He had a special gift in relating to young children. His charm and humor were infectious, and he demonstrated this ability through funny alter egos like Topo Gigio, Geraldine, Kitty Cat Voices and funny songs like Jimmy Crackcorn, in regular phone calls his family loved. With an iron will he cheerfully dragged himself along with a debilitating chronic illness continuing his mission to be the fearless leader of our family. With a humbled heart, he collapsed into the arms of the Lord, where he will be TCB - taking care of business - from above. He was predeceased by his father and mother, Stephen S. and Venicia Catalano. He is survived by the love of his life, Rebekah Catalano, daughter of Dr. John K. and Tonye Lea Sharp; and five children he adored: Terry and Carol Nick and their children, Hayley and Maddie; Natalie and Doug Crouse and their children, Nick, Sofia, Vincent, Carmen and Charlotte; Bianca and Dan Fagan and their children, Madison and Nathan; Natasha and Thomas Savona and their children, Giavanna and Vivianna; and Briana and Jason Barber and their daughter, Terry's namesake, Stevie Lea. He is also survived by three siblings, Rosalie Catalano and Paul Ginsburg, Daniel and Debbie Catalano, and Frank Catalano and Tonia; his favorite Uncle Joe; best friend, William "Flip" Hungerford and wife, Joyce; and his faithful companion, Olive the kitty cat; and host of nieces and nephews and cousins.
