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.

Article includes individual accounts for each victim. For complete text, see David Davis.

Martin Cavanaugh had been married a few years and was the father of a small family. He lived in Brown Row.

DIED
At his residence in East Liberty, Fayette co., on the 30th ult., of Typhoid Fever and Rheumatism, Dr. CHARLES R. CHALFANT, aged about 35 years.
The deceased has been removed from a career of usefulness in the prime of life.  He leaves a devoted wife and a large circle of relatives, as well as the entire circle of his acquaintance to mourn his loss.
As a Physician he had been very successful, and stood high with the members of the profession and the community.  As a citizen and friend he was a high toned honorable gentleman, agreeable and affectionate in all his intercourse, and true and steadfast in his friendships.  As a christian, he witnessed a good profession, and his kind words, and happy countenance spread a good influence wherever he moved.  His life though short was entirely successful, and as such is worthy of imitation; he was much loved while he lived, and is now deeply lamented.  He died in the triumphs of faith in Jesus Christ, and gave abundant evidence that to him death was but a transition from the cares of life to the enjoyment of eternal happiness.

Elizabeth King Chalfant
ELIZABETH CHALFANT, widow of the late Dr. S B Chalfant, of Upper Middletown, Pa., was born March 5, 1826, and died at the residence of her father Josiah King, in Perry township, Fayette Co., Jan. 10, 1889. The interment occurred at Mt. Washington cemetery on Sunday following, at 10 AM, services conducted by the Rev A E Husted, assisted by the Rev's A H Norcross and T H Wilkenson, former pastors of the deceased. For over forty years she had been a member of the church, and for many years her house at Upper Middletown was the home of the preachers, who always found hospitable and entertainment. Her religious life was steady, consistent, harmonious; rather the even noiseless flow of a deep stream than the bolsterous turbulence of rocks and shoals. She leaves an aged father, an only daughter, four sons and a host of relatives and friends to mourn her loss, but their loss is her eternal gain. The ladies' aid society of Perryopolis in resolutions of respect very truly speak of her as "a sister who in all the relations of life illustrated a noble character by deeds of kindness." (clipped) infinite wisdom to remove from our midst, Mrs. Elizabeth Chalfant, widow of Dr S B Chalfant; thereto be it Resolved, That the members of the Ladies' Aid Society of the Perryopolis Methodist Episcopal church review her death with feelings of the most profound sorrow. It mourns the death of a sister who in all the relations of life illustrated a noble character by deed of kindness. That while we bow to the will of Him "who doth all things well," may each member of the society strive to emulate her virtues and at last meet her where parting shall be no more. Resolved, That we extend our heartfelt sympathy to the aged father and other members of the family of the deceased, and that a copy of these resolutions be sent to her bereaved family, also a copy to the Connellsville COURIER.

Chalfant Died At Perryopolis; Was Former Postmaster Ephriam King Chalfant, 79 years, four months and 35 days old, storekeeper and former postmaster at Perryopolis, died Tuesday night at 9:15 o'clock at the home of a son, Chads Chalfant, at Perryopolis from complications. He had been ill for six months. Mr. Chalfant was a son of the late Dr Samuel B and Elizabeth Chalfant, the former a pioneer physician of Fayette county, and for many years a resident of Upper Middletown where the son was born. Mr Chalfant was married to Ada Wells of Jefferson township in 1901 who preceded him in death June 1, 1914.

There is one brother, James K Chalfant of Hickory, Washington county. Three grandchildren also survive. They are King and Elizabeth Chalfant of Richmond, Ind., and Dorothy Bee Chalfant of Perryopolis. Mr Chalfant spent the early part of his life at Upper Middletown and later resided at Star Junction, being engaged in farming, and then moved to Perryopolis where he was proprietor of a general store and also served as postmaster. He had been retired about 15 years. He was organizer of the county local option movement about 15 years ago and always was immensely interested in public affairs and never missed casting a ballot at every election- primary and general since he became of age. He went to the polls last fall. Mr Chalfant was a staunch Republican. The body will remain at the Chads Chalfant home until Friday noon where it may be viewed.

Fletcher Charles CHALFANT died in 1886. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(3)

FLETCHER CHARLES CHALFANT
CHALFANT -Fletcher Charles Chalfant, third son of Dr S B and Elizabeth Chalfant was born at Uppermiddletown, Pa., January 21, 1863, and died at the residence of his grandfather, Josiah King, in Perry township, March 18, 1886. Funeral services conducted by Rev D H McKee, assisted by Rev Josiah Mansell, and the remains were followed to the Mount Washington cemetery by a large concourse of, relatives and friends, where they were deposited beneath the shadow of the family monument. Thus ended in the early morning of his manhood, a life, the brilliancy of whose intellect commanded the admiration of all who knew him, and whose generous disposition won the love and respect of all his associates. Until Charlie was seven years old, he was like other boys. But at this time while at play at school, he met with an accident which changed his entire future and which resulted in a disease of the hip bone, with which he suffered the pangs of a thousand deaths; and, but for the tender attention of his mother, and the utmost exertion of his father's skill he would never have survived this terrible affliction. But with these advantages, to-gether with his own native force, we find him after five or six years able to travel around with a crutch, and although badly crippled his disease was mastered so far as his hip was concerned. But at this period his parents were horrified to see manifestations of lung disease, and at the age of 15 years we find him trying the western climate. A year later he tries the highlands of Colorado, making a strong and vigorous fight for his life. He visited Denver, Pueblo, the various parks, Maniton, with it's mineral springs, and finally selecting Colorado Springs as his headquarters where he remained for five years. For two or three years the rarefied air of that elevated country, together with the faithful maternal care of Miss A A Warren, the proprietress of the Hotel Antlers with whom he stopped, did greatly benefit him for the time. The transferring of passengers to Crystal Park hotel, sightseeing of tourists and regular camp life, each in turn was tried as his strength would permit, and when too feeble to endure fatigue Miss Warren was ever ready with some pleasant and profitable employment which was recreative as well as remunerative. But it became evident the last two years that he stayed in Colorado that his health was declining and in the spring of 1884 his sister visited him and induced him to return to his native state in hope that if the change of climate would not arrest the ravages of the disease it would at least bring him to his home, where his friends might surround him with the comforts he could enjoy; and while Charlie had many friends who were willing to make any sacrifice for his pleasure there was an attachment between him and his only sister that was super-human. She was constantly at his side when she could render any comfort and has the satisfaction of knowing that every wish he made was gratified, and when it was apparent to all that the end was fast approaching, he besought her and his aunt to "stand by me to the end," and with faithful loving hearts and constant willing hands, they were ever ready to anticipate a wish or translate the meaning of a glance. With watching and praying they alleviated all his suffering possible and when but a few hours were left for him to suffer and when his friends were held in breathless suspense it seemed as though their cup of bitterness no yet full, and to intensify the agony, a message was received announcing the death of Dr E L King, a son, a brother and uncle of those watching and waiting, but Charlie never knew it in this world. And when the sunlight of a new day appeared, the death angel came and found him ready. He said he was not afraid to die. He died in the hope that "everything was all right," leaving a message to "meet him in heaven," His friends followed him to the very crumbling verge of eternity, and when he had "forded the river" their souls went out until they could almost hear the wave breaking on the other shore.

Margaret CHALFANT died in 1837.

CHALFANT

Mrs. Margaret CHALFANT, relict of the Rev. Chadds CHALFANT, died near Brownsville, Pennsylvania, on the 19th Dec. last, in the 82d year of her age. We extract the following account of this mother in Israel from a more full account by brother Boyd of the Pittsburgh conference. The deceased was born in Loudon county, Virginia, December the 31st, 1755. Her maiden name was M'MANIMAN. In her 21st years, she was united in marriage with Mr. Chadds CHALFANT. They were permitted to enjoy this happy union about fifty-four years; and were blessed with twelve children, seven of whom are still living, while five are gone to rest: three were called away in the days of infancy, and two in riper years. -- Mother Chalfont's death was preceded by that of her husband about seven years and six months. They were among the early settlers in the neighborhood of Brownsville; and the first fruits of Methodism in that place. It seems that the Rev. Daniel HITT, of precious memory, was the first Methodist preacher that found his way to the habitation of father and mother Chalfant; and delivered the first Methodist sermon for that neighborhood, in their house, on the 3d of May, 1794: and on the 14th of July following, he embraced their house as a regular preaching place: and four weeks after, on the 12th day of August, a class of four persons was formed, including father and mother CHALFANT.

Mother CHALFANT did not enjoy religion at this time, but still held on as an earnest seeker, until the last of December following, when it pleased the Lord to give her the knowledge of salvation, by the remission of her sins, in a class meeting. This was about the thirty-ninth year of her age. From this time she still held on her way, adorning her profession by an upright life, until the thirteenth year of her christian pilgrimage, when on the 3d of May, 1807, while in a class meeting, wrestling earnestly for "a clean heart," the Lord was pleased to give her a clear evidence of entire sanctification, which great blessing she retained in all its power and glory to the end of life; including a period a little over thirty years.

We have seen, from the outline just drawn, that mother CHALFANT professed to be sanctified wholly, as well as to be justified freely, and that these were distinct blessings. some twelve or thirteen years intervening between; that she fixed definite time and place to each. Hence, as she professed to enjoy justification and sanctification, as blessings revealed to the heart by the direct testimony of the Holy Ghost.

For a considerable time previous to her death, she was gradually sinking under the weight of her years. And, besides this general infirmity, she was, several times during the last two or three years of her life, greatly prostrated by the hand of affliction. In this way, she was made unusually familiar with "the valley of the shadow of death," ere she was called to enter it. She was almost entirely confined to her bed during the last four months of her life. Her sufferings, which were great, during her last confinement, she bore with that meekness and patience that became the perfect christian. She had lingered so long, with but little more than a vital spark, that her friends could not discover any change for several days previous to her death. Her mental powers did not forsake her to the last: and though she had previously suffered much, she expired at last without a struggle or a groan: and thus sweetly fell asleep in the arms of Jesus, about 8 o'clock, on Tuesday evening, the 19th of December, 1837. Her last testimony was that her work was done, and that she was ready to go.

Michael CHIBILECK ( -1944)

Miner Slays Woman, Kills Self
In Presence Of Her Daughters
Double Tragedy
Follows Party At
Amend Home
Widow’s Older Daughter
Fails To Ward Off
Killer

   Infuriated when denied a signature on a card, the nature of which has not been definitely determined, drunk crazed Michael Chibileck, 52, a miner of Amend Works, shot Mrs. Rebecca Martin, 45, twice in the head, killing her instantly, then sent a .38 calibre revolver bullet crashing into his own brain, his lifeless body falling across that of his victim. The double tragedy occurred about 7:30 o’clock last evening in the home of Mrs. Martin while her two younger daughters, Virginia, 13, and Evelyn, 10, looked on. The older of the two girls grappled with the man when he drew his revolver but failed to prevent the shooting when he threw her frantically against the living room wall in the pretty little five-room cottage home.

Issued Threats

   According to Mrs. Helen Early, 23, another daughter of Mrs. Martin, Chibileck had been staging a drinking party with her mother’s brother-in-law, Harry Dean. After returning from work at the Gargardi plant No. 10, at Gilmore, Chibileck, Mrs. Early said went to Dean’s home and gave him his mining tools saying: “I won’t need them any more.” That, she said was in the middle of the afternoon. Later, as he prepared to leave, Mrs. Martin quoted Dean as saying that Chibileck said he was “going down to kill Mrs. Martin.” Dean, however, is quoted as saying he “didn’t think much about it” and made no attempt to prevent his friend’s departure.

   Virginia, the older of the two girls who were at home with their mother when Chibileck entered the house, said the man “seemed all right.” But after only a short time she heard him arguing with her mother about “signing a card of some kind. Mother told him she could read and refused to sign the card until she could talk with someone,” Virginia said. “I was just passing the living room door when I saw Chibileck draw a gun. I rushed in and grabbed his arm but he threw me against the wall. Just as I turned to get up I saw him point the gun at Mother and fire twice. Then he put it against his head and fired again. I screamed but couldn’t do anything.

Hear Two Shots

   Evelyn, 10, the other sister, hearing the shots, rushed into the living room and upon seeing the two bodies on the floor, rushed from the house screaming for help. Mrs. Early, who was in her own home, some distance from that of her mother, at the time, said she heard Evelyn screaming almost immediately after what she believed to have been a muffled shot. Her husband, Eugene Early, and a friend, Levi Lindsey, were together some distance away and both said they heard two shots. It was the son-in-law who first entered the house to find the bodies lying in pools of blood at the foot of a davenport. Mrs. Martin and her daughter, Mrs. Early, had returned from Uniontown only a few hours prior to the tragedy. They had made the trip to send money to their son and brother, Pfc. James McDonald Martin, with the U. S. Marines in the South Pacific. Yesterday, August 3, was his 21st birthday anniversary. News of his mother’s death will be the second such tragedy the young Marine has suffered. He was working with his father, James C. Martin, when the latter was killed, July 9, 1942, by a fall of slate in the Phillips mine. The double tragedy was investigated by Coroner Herrington, Assistant County Detective Forrest Parke and State Troopers John Gettier and William Vilseek.

Leaves Four Children

   Body of Mrs. Martin was removed to the Sharp Funeral Home, Fairchance. Chibileck’s body was removed to the Haky Funeral Home, Uniontown. Mrs. Martin is survived by four children: Virginia and Evelyn, at home; Mrs. Early, of Amend, and James.

   Chibileck, whose wife preceded him in death five years ago, leaves five children: Rose, at home; Margaret and Katherine, of New York; Stephen, of Amend; Joseph, overseas with the armed forces.

James Martin, with the Marines in the South Pacific. A daughter of Mrs. Martin, Virginia, 13, tried to ward off the killer. Evelyn, 10, another daughter, was also in the room at the time of the double tragedy. Mrs. Martin, a widow, leaves a third daughter, Mrs. Helen Early, also of Ament.

Possible—Four Men injured, One of
Them Fatally—Mine Inspector and

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:

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.

Sgt. Louis I. CHUBBOY ( -1918)

SERGEANT CHUBBOY OF COMPANY D IS REPORTED MISSING

Name of One of Best-known of Hundred Tenth Fighters in List Today

HE MAY BE A PRISONER

Fate May Soon be Cleared Now That Hostilities Have Ended.
Had Long Service With Regulars. Before Joining
Local Command, Striking Figure

Newpaper image is poor quality. Transcription may not be exact.

   Sergeant Louis I. Chubboy is reported missing in action. The name of Chubboy, one of the most striking figures on Company D is carried in the casualty list announced for today by the War Department. Whether he was taken prisoner and eventually released or will be courted among the number who are never again heard from remains to be determined. It is possible that before long his fate may be cleared up, along with others who have been counted among the missing. Sergeant Chubboy’s home is on a farm a few miles removed from Perryopolis in the direction of Brownsville.

   It was under some difficulties that Sergeant Chubboy joined the ranks of the American Expeditionary Forces. Due to the absence of authenticated proof of the naturalization of his father, Louis Chubboy, the young non-com was not permitted to leave with the rest of the command. The proof was forthcoming in due time and Sergeant Chubboy went happily on his way. Arriving in France he was beset with more difficulties and as was told in a letter he traveled over much of France, before finally rejoining his company.

   Sergeant Chubboy was of Hungarian parentage and to this fact was due the careful search into his record before he was permitted to embark. This was notwithstanding the fact that he had served for several years in the Regular Army, had been with the army on one expedition into Mexico before the .er.es of revolutions that swept that country and that he was with Company D on its trip to the Mexican border in 1916.

   The young officer is descended from a long line of soldiers— Hungarian patriots. His grandfather enjoyed the distinction of having been promoted to a commissioned officer from a sergeantcy— something rare in his day. Practically all his male ancestors took part under various Kossuth in the Hungarian rebellion of 1848 when an unsuccessful effort was made to establish a republic.

   Sergeant Chubboy was every inch a soldier. He at once attracted attention by his military bearing. When the 110th Infantry left for overseas, Chubboy was the mess sergeant of Company D. Whether he retained the position after rejoining the command is not known here. Nothing that has been made public has reached the country since that time.

SERGEANT CHUBBOY KILLED, ALSO CORPORAL LAPHEW,
SAYS LETTER SENT BY A COMRADE
“Fell in Last Fight,” Writes Corporal Joseph W. Easton, October 27.
CHUBBOY LISTED MISSING

Name Appeared in This Classification in Casualty List Few Days Ago:
Corporal Laphew Had Rescued the Writer of Letter as He Lay on Field

   The death in action of two more members of Company D, 110th, Infantry, is reported in a letter written from American Red Cross Hospital No. 1 on October 27, by Corporal Joseph W. Easton, Jr., of that command, to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph L. Easton of Trevor street. In this letter Corporal Easton says:

   “Pat McManus was just in to see me. You know his father used to run the Altman hotel in Uniontown. He told me that Sergeant Chubboy and Corporal Laphew were killed in their last fight.
   “I certainly was sorry to hear of the death of those two fellows, for they were both pals of mine, and the best kind of men. Poor old Chubby! After fighting so hard to get over here, it don’t seem square does it.

   Sergeant Chubboy, whose name appeared in the official casualty list 10 days or so ago as “missing in action,” was one of the best known and most popular members of Company D. Corporal Easton’s mention of his hard fight “to get over here,” refers to the delay occasioned in sailing due to failure to receive proof of the naturalization of Sergeant Chubboy’s father. This proof arrived a few days after Company D sailed and Sergeant Chubboy was sent across with other troops. After arriving in France he had considerable difficulty in reaching headquarters of the 110th and it was only after an accidental meeting with Lieutenant Colonel E. B. Edie of the Medical Corps that he was enabled to rejoin his command. Corporal Ernest C. Laphew, aged 22 at the time of his enlistment in Company D, before it was moved to Camp Hancock for training, was a resident of East Pittsburg. He was rated as a first-class private and was promoted to corporal after the 110th reached France.

   That he had the same kind of courage and grit other members of Company D have shown on many occasions during the war, in proven by an incident related in a letter written by Corporal Easton on October 25, two days before he heard of his friend’s death. Having become a bit lonesome by his long retention in the hospital, Corporal Easton wrote:

   “I would like to see some of the old boys. You know, after one goes over the top a few times and sleeps in shell holes, and fights side by side with a jolly, good bunch, you learn to love them like brothers, or even more so. There is one fellow, a pal of mine in Company D, Corporal Laphew. Well, after I was wounded and had been lying out in ‘No Man’s Land’ for some hours, with the machine gun bullets hitting all around me and the big shells dropping real close, he came out and endangered his own life to get me back to safety.
   “He and I have always tried to get ahead of one another in the fights we were in, just to have something to talk about after it was all over. But we have always been the best of pals and he is the best sticker I ever saw. Going over the top takes courage, but it is not the worst thing to be done, you know. And when it is for a good cause we don’t mind it at all.
   “Connellsville and Uniontown need not be ashamed of the company of boys who represent them in France, for everyone is ready to lay down his life for the good and noble cause.”
