bullet Valentine COUGHENOUR died in 1885. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(10)

Valentine Coughenour, who died at Beaver, last Saturday, was the oldest citizen of Connellsville, for he was a citizen here, being only on a visit to his son-in-law at the time of his death.  He was stricken with paralysis and the end was swift and sudden.  The remains were interred at Beaver on Monday.  Valentine Coughenour was born on the Sherrick farm, in Tyrone township, this county, in 1795, and was 90 years and 6 months old at the time of his death.  His family came here in 1800 and in 1818 Valentine went to Pittsburg and learned the trade of glassblower under the first glassmaker this side of the mountains.  With this interruption, he lived in Connellsville 50 years continuously.  From 1852 to 1877, he resided in Beaver County.  Since then he has made his home mostly here with his son, G. L. Coughenour. He was twice married and was the father of 23 children.  "Felty" as he was familiarly called was quite active in spite of his years and had a memory full of interesting reminiscences. He remembered well when there was but one house and a ferry stand where now stretches out the city of Allegheny. His many old friends here will hear of his departure beyond the grave with keen regret.

DEATH OF JUDGE COULTER

   JUDGE COULTER died at his residence in Greensburg, on Tuesday the 20th inst. he was taken sick in Philadelphia, and hastened to his home, where he arrived on Saturday previous to his death. The Pittsburgh Dispatch says, his death has caused most sincere sorrow to a large circle of friends and admirers. He was a man of very high intellectual endowments – an eloquent speaker, a ready writer, an able and learned jurist, and, better than all, a good, kind-hearted man – a friend to the stranger and the friendless. We had long loved him for personal kindness, and shall cherish his memory as that of a true friend.

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.

Patrick Courtney was about fifty years of age, married and had a family of ten children. He lived in a home of his own, about one fourth of a mile from the mine, on a piece of land he had purchased from Amzi Miller. His wife survives him. John Courtney, one of the entombed, was Patrick’s eldest son. The older children living are girls.

Mrs. John COX ( -1909)

AGED WOMAN
KILLS HERSELF

Mrs. John Cox of Mill Run
Committed Suicide
Last Night.

SHE WAS SIXTY-FIVE YEARS OLD

Drank Carbolic Acid in the Yard and
Her Lifeless Body Was Found this Morning—
Passerby Thought it an Old Bag.

   Mrs. John Cox of Mill Run committed suicide last evening and her lifeless body was found in the yard this morning. She drank a large quantity of carbolic acid and apparently fell to the earth where she had taken the poison. The woman was upwards of 65 years old, and although she has not been enjoying good health it was never supposed that she had suicidal tendencies. As far as is known Mrs. Cox went into the yard between 9 and 10 o’clock last evening and swallowed the poison. Her husband usually retired between 6 and 7 o’clock and he had already gone to bed, which accounts for the body not being found until this morning. Mr. and Mrs. Cox occupy separate rooms in the house and it is rarely that Mrs. Cox went to bed before 10 or 11 o’clock and many times she sat up later than this. The husband arose this morning and went out to feed the chickens. He was startled by finding the lifeless body on his wife lying the yard. Thinking that she had, perhaps fallen and hurt herself, he endeavored to arouse her, and was horrified to find that she was dead. The neighbors were quickly aroused and the lifeless body was carried into the house. The acid had frightfully burned her mouth and her face was marked by the fluid that had coursed down over it. She is survived by the following children: Mrs. Frank Dull, Connellsville; Mrs. R. E. Marietta, John, Philip and Sigmund Cox, Mill Run and Frank Cox of West Virginia.

Speaker Cox had been in poor health since the last session of the Legislature but his family thought his illness only temporary. He was 59 years old and prominent in Republican politics.

Captain Michael A. COX Stone  (1821-1904)

CAPT. MICHAEL A. COX

   Captain Michael A. Cox, of Brownsville, is one of the ablest, as well as safest, commanders that ever trod the deck of a steamboat, and is one of the oldest steamboat captains now in active service on the western rivers. He has commanded twenty- two different steamboats (being part owner in all of them) on the Monongahela, Ohio, Mississippi, Missouri, Arkansas and Cumberland rivers. He has also a pilot’s license on all of these rivers. Transporting hundreds of thousands of passengers, moving millions of tons of freight, he has never been in an accident by which a life was lost or any amount of property destroyed. The beginning of his long and so distinguished career upon the "Western Waters" was in 1844 as clerk of the steamboat "Massachusetts" commanded by Captain Isaac Bennet. Captain Cox is now commanding the Adam Jacobs on the Monongahela river. Captain M. A. Cox was born in Hampstead, Carroll County, Md., July 26, 1821, and is the son of Jacob and Keeziah (Armacost) Cox, both natives of Carroll County, Md. Jacob Cox came to Fayette County, Pa. in 1825 and engaged in his life-long pursuit of farming near Brownsville. He died in 1836 and his wife passed away eighteen years later. Captain Cox obtained his education in the subscription school of the county at that time; his attendance was limited to the winter sessions as he was employed on the farm during the summer.

   At seventeen years of age, he turned to the mercantile business. In order to properly qualify himself for that pursuit, he engaged as a clerk with James I. Bowman of Brownsville, with whom he remained for six years. He completed his experience in mercantile life with two years spent as a clerk for Jesse H. Duncan, in an iron commission house in Brownsville. He was united in marriage, May 7, 1850, to Miss Mary Ellen Krepps, a daughter of the Hon. Samuel J. Krepps; she died in 1880, leaving five children; Annie E., Samuel K., Solomon G., Michael A., Jr. and Mary E. Two of his sons (Samuel K. and Solomon G.) are successful business men of Chicago and the other Michael A., Jr. is a prosperous business man in St. Louis, Missouri. One of his daughters, Mary E., married Mr. William J. Parshall, the other, Annie E., is single and has the care of her father's comfortable home in Brownsville.

   In addition to his Brownsville possessions, Captain Cox owns a valuable body of land in West Va., besides other property. Thus he has accumulated enough of the world's goods to render him comfortable in his old age and give his children a fair start in life. He is of commanding presence. Politically he is a Democrat. Although not connected with any church, his religious views are in accord with the teachings of the Methodist Episcopal church. The Captain in forty-five consecutive years of service navigating western waters, has often piloted his own boats. He is as spry and active as the general run of men who are his juniors in age by twenty years, and bids fair from his present appearance to tread the deck for a number of years to come.

TERRIFIC EXPLOSION WRECKS
FAIRCHANCE POWDER MILL AND
THREE MEN ARE BLOWN TO BITS

Plant of the DuPont Company
Is Badly Damaged by Blasts.

FOUR MILLS GONE, IS STORY

Plant is Located Up White Rocks Hollow,
Some Distance from Fairchance;
Telephonic Communication
Cut Off; First Reports are Meager.

   Three men lost their lives this afternoon in an explosion which wrecked the Fairchance powder mill of E. L. du Pont de Nemours & Company. Because of the remote location of the plant and the fact that the explosion tore down the telephone lines reaching it, details are meager. In Fairchance it was reported that four mills had blown up. Other stories were to effect that the press mill and charge house were demolished in two separate explosions.

   The victims of the explosion were John Robinson, 51, married, Fairchance: William Cox, 35, married, Georges township; John Brock, 28, an Italian. Twenty men were in the shift when the explosion occurred. None were injured. The victims apparently were blown to atoms for nothing has been found of their remains but one foot. They were alone in the press mill. The press, corning and wheel mills all let go. The cause is unknown.

   The plant is located up the White Rocks hollow, about two miles from Fairchance, and in an inaccessible portion of the mountains. The mill was built there following the Rand explosion of 1906. The plant is engaged in the manufacture of blasting powder, used in the mines. No explosives for munitions are manufactured. The shock of the explosion was plainly felt in Uniontown, some six miles away. Persons said it approached in violence the blast which wrecked the Rand plant.

HEADS NOT FOUND

Plant is Located Up White Rocks Hollow,
Partial Remains of Explosion Victims
Laid at Rest Today.

   The grewsome task of searching the ruins of the three mills of the du Pont Powder Company at Oliphant for remnants of the bodies of three men killed in the explosion Monday afternoon ended with the heads of the victims still missing. The three men were of different sizes consequently the work of identifying the remains was not hard. No trace of the heads was found, however. The body of William Cox was shipped to West Virginia last night. The funerals of John Robinson and John Brock were held from their homes in Fairchance this afternoon. It was discovered yesterday that a mule which hauled a truck between the corning mill and the press mill was hurled 40 feet away by the force of the explosion and killed.

CRAFT, BENJAMIN OLIPHANT - December 26, 1796 - March 26, 1886

Benjamin Craft Died at his home in Jefferson Township Greene County, Pa., Friday March 26, 1886. Mr. Benjamin Craft, a well Known and highly respected citizen, aged 90 years. Mr. Craft was born near Merritstown, Redstone Township, Fayette County, Pa., Dec. 26, 1796. He was married Oct. 20, 1822, to Mrs. Mary Craft a young widow of Merritstown, by Rev. Jason Meeks, of Bridgeport Pa., and they have traveled life's journey together for more than 64 years. His wife who is four years his junior, still survives him, but is quite feeble.

Mr. Craft served seven years as Colonel of the 103 Regiment, Pa. Volunteers, under Gen. Merrick and Gen. Gideon John, and was highly honored by his men and officers. In April, 1845 he moved to Greene County, Pa., where he made his permanent residence. He was the father of 15 children, six sons and nine daughters, of whom three sons and six daughters are still living. In the fall of 1875, while the Rev. Liman Streeter was holding a "bush" meeting in the grove known as "Morgan Youngs" grove, Mr. Craft and his wife both sought religion, and united with the Disciple Church, and have since lived constant members. Mr. Craft had strong intellectual powers, and these he used to a great advantage in the study of the bible, he had learned to love its holy pages and to live out its teachings with all sincerity. In his short Christian life he exhibited most practically how to live for Christ. His cheerful and interesting conversation, his encouraging words, his straight forward and decisive mind; these were a characteristic of his noble life, and all pointed to something higher and better and grander beyond this dark vale of tears. He was straight forward, upright and a honest man in all his dealings. In the summer of 1884, while walking about the yard, he slipped and fell, and for several weeks he was confined to his bed. In September of the same year he was taken with some affection of the urinary organs, which finally terminated in his death at the time above stated. His remains were interment in the Hewitt Church cemetery, on Sunday, March 28, at 11o'clock A.M. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Morgan Woods, of Clarksville, Pa.

bullet William F. CRAGGS died in 1938. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(15)

William F. Craggs, 24, of 1509 Water Street, Brownsville, was instantly killed at 3:10 Monday afternoon when the machine in which he was riding collided with another, overturning and pinning him against the curbing.
The accident occurred on the McClellandtown road at the Thompson Street intersection near the Uniontown hospital when the victim was riding with Santo "Chink" Rosano of Uniontown.
Rosano was traveling toward Uniontown when his machine collided with that operated by Harry Williams of Daisytown near California, Pa.
Williams, it was reported, attempted to make a left turn into Thompson Avenue when the accident occurred.
Larry Willliams, five-year-old son of the driver, was treated at the hospital for lacerations of the head.
Rosano said that the car door was thrown open by the impact, freeing him from the car which overturned, coming to rest with four wheels in the air.
Rosano was uninjured, as were the four other occupants of the William's machine.
Passing motorists and others attracted to the scene assisted in removing the car from Cragg's body.
An immediate investigation was conducted by Patrolman Harry Chaney with Coroner S.A. Baltz and motor patrolmen.
Craggs had been employed as an automobile salesman in Uniontown and resided at 84 North Gallatin Avenue. He had previously been employed by the Turner Auto Company and Harvey Romesburg. He was graduated from the German Township high school in 1934.
The body was taken to the Kisinger Funeral Home in Brownsville.,
The victim is survived by his parents, Mr. & Mrs. Frank Craggs; two brothers, Charles and Harold; and a sister, Virginia.
Funeral arrangements will be announced later.

During the following winter she taught school at Shamrock, but on account of incipient illness, she was compelled to discontinue her teaching. Rarely does one know so beautiful a character. Modest, kind, and unselfish, lovable, with a high sense of right, patient and cheerful during her protracted illness, she leaves behind her only what is pleasant to remember, and good to imitate. It is a memory without a shadow upon it. She was a member of the First Presbyterian church and of its Sabbath school to both of which she was sincerely devoted. Both will miss her and both feel the warmest sympathy with her bereaved parents, sister and brother who survive. Funeral services will be held at the home of her parents, Saturday afternoon at 3 o’clock.

CHAS. T. CRAMER IS FOUND DEAD IN APARTMENT

Prominent Business Man, Civic Leader, Suffers Fatal Stroke; Formerly Tax Collector

FOUND BY BANK RUNNER

Charles Thomas Cramer, aged 78 years, for many years tax collector of county, borough and school taxes and one of Uniontown's best known and highly respected citizens was found dead in the bathroom of his apartment in the Fayette Title and Trust building at 4:30 p.m. yesterday. Death was due to a stroke.

The body was discovered by Frank Whiteman, messenger at the Second National Bank, who had taken some business papers to the Cramer apartment. Death had occurred at least two hours prior to the finding of the body, it was stated by Coroner S. A. Baltz, who was summoned.

For a number of years Mr. Cramer, who was a notary public had handled all protested checks of the banking house. His health and a stroke just a year ago had made it necessary for the papers to be delivered daily to his apartment to receive the official seal.

Upon reaching the apartment Whiteman found the front door open. He knocked and receiving no response walked into the apartment. There he saw the former tax collector's hat and coat hanging on the wall and found the radio playing and a pot of coffee on the stove boiling over.

His search led him to the bathroom where he found the ??? form lying sideways on the floor, partly under the bathroom sink. He hurriedly spread the alarm and summoned aid.

Mr. Cramer had been down town at noon, partaken of a hearty lunch and had conversed with friends and relatives. He had suffered a stroke August 23 of last year and had been joking with his friends regarding his health, stating that he had not been given long to live at that time but that it would be many years before his death. He was not seen again until the lifeless body was found.

At 3:30 p.m. a colored messenger boy who daily took stock reports to the dead man and who is employed at the John Jenkins barber shop in the bank building had gone to Mr. Cramer's apartment. He had opened the door and not seeing his employer about had left, believing the man, even at that time lifeless in an adjoining room, had gone down street.

The body was removed to the Johnston mortuary on North Gallatin avenue where it will remain until members of his immediate family arrive here from the east today. Telegrams were immediately dispatched to his children and funeral arrangements will not be made until their arrival.

Born near Fairchance, October 12, 1925, deceased was a son of Godfrey and Jemima Cramer. His early life was spent in that vicinity when he removed to Uniontown where he had spent his entire life.

Early in life Mr. Cramer engaged in the merchandise business, conducting a store at the corner of Main and Morgantown streets in the Thompson-Ruby building. When he sold this business he engaged in other occupations and was for many years connected with the offices of the Charles Seaton Real Estate Company. In the '90s he was elected tax collector, at that time collecting the county, borough, and school taxes. He held this office for several terms.

During his tenure of office he was known for his kindnesses to those in distress and he gained a county-wide popularity and friendship that has lasted through the years. During those years he also served as school director. His term of tax collector was during the period prior to Uniontown becoming a third class city.

Since relinquising the tax collectorship Mr. Cramer had engaged in the notorial business and for many years handled all of the protested checks that accumulated in the business of local banking houses. He belonged to several fraternal organizations.

He was preceded in death by his first wife, Mary Virginia Beeson Cramer, who passed away October 12, 1906, and by his second wife Ada League Cramer who died August 7, 1932. Several brothers also preceded him in death.

Surviving are one son, Charles H. Cramer of Buckingham, two daughters, Mrs. Robert E. Transure, (formerly Miss Frances Cramer) of Lumberville and Mrs. Henry Eastwood, (formerly Miss Mary Cramer) of Pineville and one grand niece, Mrs. Robert Sincock of Uniontown.

bullet Josephine CRAMER died in 1879. Her obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(29)
Page 3
On last Wednesday afternoon about four o’clock, as Josephine, daughter of J. E. and Catherine Cramer, aged nine years, was crossing O’Possum Run on a foot log just below the mud pike bridge, she lost her balance and fell into the rushing water below. The water was very high, owning to the late freshet, and the child was carried rapidly down the stream, only being seen once after her fall, and ten only for a second, by Mrs. Newcomer, who gave the alarm. Soon hundreds of people were gathered along the shore searching for the lost one. Darkness coming on, torches were procured and a line formed through the stream by joining hands, in this way, starting from the point where the child was last seen, the party made their way down the creek. A short distance above Robisons falls quite a quantity of drift had collected, and among this rubbish the remains of the unfortunate one was discovered. The funeral will take place today at 10 o’clock.

Kenneth W. CRAMER ( -1958)

BROWNFIELD MAN KILLED BY TRAIN

Kenneth W. Cramer, 36, of Brownfield, died of injuries received when he was struck by a Baltimore and Ohio freight train at 2:15 a.m. Sunday near Brownfield. The mangled body was found along the tracks after engineers halted the westbound freight train. Train 95 was traveling from Fairmont to Connellsville, B & O officials said. A spokesman in the office of W.D. Hunt, yardmaster in Connellsville, said this morning the investigation was continuing.

Sunday’s tragedy occurred two and one half miles east of last week’s B & O accident, when a 107 car freight train crashed into a string of empty cars. A railroad official in Pittsburgh said an employee apparently neglected to close a switch on a spur near a grade crossing, permitting the heavy freight to enter.

Cramer is survived by his parents, John T. and Henrietta Cramer, three sons, Kenneth, Jesse James and Jackie Cramer of Ohio; three daughters, Betty Jane of Brownfield, Barbara Jean and Darlene of Ohio; six brothers and six sisters.

The body is at the Wagner-Cooley funeral home at Fairchance where the funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Tuesday. Burial will be in Hopwood Cemetery.

Sidelights and Comment on Happenings
Here and There

Days of Old Cramer Band and Its Work
On Memorial Day Recalled by member.

   Years ago—many of them, as Lee Cramer of South Connellsville recalls it—his father, the late Samuel D. Cramer of Indian Head, organized the Cramer Band. Every year on Memorial Day the band visited cemeteries in Saltlick and Springfield townships, decorated graves of service men of several of the Nation's wars and, where there was need, cleared off grass and weeds. Many of the flowers were raised by the elder Cramer. Others were solicited from the mountain folks. There was always a generous quantity. A flag was planted on every grave.

   Since the death of his father in 1928, at the age of 77, Lee Cramer has been attempting to carry on the work thus started. The band has long since disbanded, but Lee makes the rounds as the band did of yore. He's at it this year--has been for three weeks, utilizing his spare hours.


   Cemeteries embraced in the beautification program are the old Lutheran along Back creek, the Sparks Cemetery at Indian Head, Mount Zion United Brethren between Indian Head and Little Fork, Mt. Nebo, the old Reformed along Back creek.

   It was customary for the band to visit the burial grounds in the Indian Head region mornings, then join in the annual services at Normalville afternoons. Lee recalls that two Civil War veterans-John Shultz, who lost a leg in battle, and John K. Grim conducted the services for years. Both rode horses, Comrade Shultz was a cavalryman. Their homes were "in the country" from Normalville.


   Soldiers of the Revolution, the War of 1812 and the Civil War are buried in the cemeteries mentioned; also some veterans of the World War. Lee's grandfather, David K. Cramer, lies in the Sparks Cemetery. His great-grandfather, John Cramer, served in the War of 1812, his great-great grandfather in the Revolution. The later two rest in an old cemetery not far from New Centerville, Somerset County. John Cramer was wounded in the battle of Tippecanoe.


   The old band was financed largely by its organizer, Samuel D. Cramer. Samuel D. played a snare drum. His brother David C. Cramer, was director. H. M. Chorpenning of Connellsville played a fife; Lee Cramer, a snare drum; David C., now member of the tax adjustment board in Greensburg, a fife; H. E. Cramer of the Frick offices in Uniontown was bass drummer; Robert Reese, now at Mammoth, also was a snare drummer. Peter R. Snyder, now dead, was among the fifers. Isaac Snyder played a snare drum, as did Charles Dumbald, who was killed two years ago by falling from a haymow at his home near Melcroft.

   Besides contributing to the observance of Memorial Day—or as they generally called it, Decoration Day—the band gave its services free of charge at picnics galore. There were no automobile roads those days, and few automobiles. Trips were made by horse and buggy.


   Lee Cramer raised part of the flowers used in decorating graves. He has 90 clumps of peonies at his home in Pittsburg street, besides many other varieties.

Samuel D. CRAMER Headstone (1851-1928)

SAMUEL D. CRAMER

PASSES AWAY AT LOCAL HOSPITAL

Most Respected Citizen of Indian Head Wages a Long Fight Against Disease

CAME FROM PIONEER STOCK

Samuel D. Cramer, the most respected citizen of Indian Head, and known throughout the northeastern section of Fayette County, died at the Connellsville State Hospital last night. His death came as the end of a vigorous fight waged by him against disease which had its inception several months ago. Early in the spring Mr. Cramer suffered injuries while shoeing a horse and on June 5, was admitted to the Melcroft Hospital. While there, on July 12, his many friends of the Valley remembered him on his 78th birthday, by calling and leaving flowers. Subsequently, on August 6, he was admitted in the Connellsville Hospital. While there, he underwent two operations, the last about two weeks ago. He withstood both with courage and seemed to rally after each, but the impairment of his health had been so severe that he was unable to regain his strength, and the end came to him last night with that peace that had been his hope for the final closing of his life.

Samuel D. Cramer was born near Scullton, Somerset County, July 12, 1851. He was a son of the late David K. and Catherine Cramer. His father moved to Indian Head in 1856 at which place Samuel has since lived, being engaged in the conduct of a blacksmith and repair shop. Mr. Cramer came from pioneer stock. His great-grandfather, Christian Cramer, a resident of Wilmington, Delaware, was engaged in the transportation business. At the outbreak of the Revolutionary War he enlisted in the army, placing his wagon train at its disposal. He served eight years under General Washington. After the war he settled in Somerset county, near Centerville. John Cramer, his son and the grandfather of Samuel, served in the War of 1813(sic), and was severely wounded at the battle of Tippecanoe. Samuel’s father served in the Civil War.

Mr. Cramer was always active in civic affairs of his home neighborhood, especially interested in the public schools, serving as director for many years. He was a Democrat in politics. He was a member of the Sons of Veterans and Mag_e Council, Junior Order United American Mechanics, and a member of the Baptist Church.

He is survived by the following children: Robert Cramer of Mammoth, Leo Cramer and Mrs. D. T. Sanner of Connellsville, and Mrs. Alva White of Indian Head. Charles Cramer, a son, died in infancy. He is also survived by a brother D. C. Cramer of Latrobe and the following sisters: Mrs. J. A. Downs of Scottdale; Mrs. M. C. Cadden of Connellsville and Mrs. F. D. Lantz of Everson. Mrs. Cramer preceded him in death on April 4 last.

The funeral services will be held at the home of the deceased at Indian Head on Saturday afternoon, at 2 o’clock, followed a half hour later by services at Mount Nebo Church. The body was removed to Indian Head today by Undertaker Brooks of Indian Head. The Junior Order United American Mechanics will have charge of the services. Rev. E. H. Stevens of the First Baptist Church of Connellsville will deliver the funeral sermon, assisted by Rev. Gonson of the Indian Head Church of God. The interment will be at Mount Nebo Church.

bullet Aaron A. CRAWFORD died in 1931. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(2)

Years of intense suffering and affliction ended Tuesday night at 10;30 when Aaron A. Crawford, 73, of Barton Mill road, slept peacefully away to a better reward.  He passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nellie Thomas, with whom he had made his home for years.  Death was due to a complication of diseases.
For many years the body of the once active and stalwart man was convulsed in pain but he endured it uncomplainingly.  Always cheerful he was more concerned about others than himself.  He stoically faced the end which he realized was impending.
Mr. Crawford died one year, a week, and a day after beloved wife, Mrs. Haddie Steele Crawford succumbed.  The time of their deaths was within five minutes.
For years Mrs. Crawford was a teamster contractor and previous to that time was employed by W. R. Barton I the Hygeia ice factory.  He had been unable to work for the last 10 or 15 years.

Cassandra Madison CRAWFORD Headstone (1850-1929)

Following an illness of more than five years, Mrs. Cassandra Crawford, 79 years old, died Saturday at her home in Uniontown. She fell about seven years ago and fractured both her arms. About a week ago she was stricken with paralysis. She was the widow of John R. Crawford.

Born in Ursina, February 10, 1850, where her father, the Rev. John Poole, was pastor of the Baptist Church, she was motherless from birth. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bird adopted her when she was only three weeks old and she was reared in that Somerset county home, although she never lost contact with her father and visited him as he moved from church to church. While on such a visit to her father, then at LaMar, Mo., during her sixteenth year, she met and was married to James Madison McGee and went with him to his home in Indianola, Ia. In 1871, Mr. McGee died, leaving her with the two daughters that survive.

Returning to Pennsylvania, she located at Confluence, but in 1885 she was married to John R. Crawford, a native of Uniontown, but who at that time was living in Scottdale. The next few years were spent in Scottdale. About 1887 the family moved to the little red brick house that used to stand in the hollow formed by the railroad and West Fayette street, Uniontown, but for the last 33 years they have lived at the present home in South Mount Vernon avenue.

She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Don Garvey of New Kensington and Miss Dell McGee of Uniontown.

Charles CRAWFORD ( -1915)

DEATH WAS ACCIDENTAL

  That the death of Charles Crawford, who was killed by a West Penn car near Lemont about a week ago, was purely an accident was the verdict of a coroner's jury on Thursday afternoon. Stricken with a sudden illness Crawford had fallen across the track and Motorman Joseph Hornbeck did not see him until the big "700" car was within about 100 feet of him, making it impossible to stop the car in time to prevent the accident. The motorman testified that the sun was shining against the car window in such a manner that it was impossible for him to distinguish the body sooner.

Henry CRAWFORD (1904-1881)

Dropped Dead

Heart Disease Aggravated by Drink
Proves Fatal to Henry CRAWFORD

Just as the day was dawning on Tuesday morning, the dead body of Henry Crawford, a stone cutter who resides at Gibson, was found lying near the railroad track near the cattle guard just this side of the latter place by Ross Balsley and Samuel C. Goodwin. Both were on their way to work, the former going in the direction of Gibson and the latter coming this way. They at once gave the alarm, and several residents of Gibson identified the remains. Squire Lytle Joseph Soisson, George H. Mathiott, R.A, McIlvaine and William Keffer, was impaneled. They proceeded to the spot, viewed the dead body and adjourned until the following day.

The remains were then removed to the late residence of the decease from which they were subsequently interred. At the hearing Wednesday afternoon Ross Balsley testified to the finding of the body. Car Inspector Sheck, of the Baltimore and Ohio road, swore that he saw Crawford on his way to Gibson about midnight, Monday evening, and that he was considerably under the influence of liquor. Several others testified to the position of the body, which was lying about three feet from the end of the ties, with face upturned and legs and arms outstretched. His hat lay some little distance off and was partially filled with water from the heavy rains of that night.

There were no marks of violence whatever on the body and the jury learned from Dr. Phillips, who had been the physician of the deceased, that he had been afflicted by stimulants. Taking all these matters into consideration it was evident that Crawford was overtaken with an acute attack of his malady while on his way home, fell down by the side of the track and expired. The jury accordingly rendered a verdict of death from natural causes.

Deceased was an Englishman by birth, and was about thirty-three years old. He had been employed as a stone cutter in the quarries of the Porter Brothers, at Fayette station, for the past five years. He leaves a wife and several small children.

bullet Luther. S. CRAWFORD died in 1935. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(2)

Funeral services for Luther S. Crawford, 40, former mayor of Uniontown, who was drowned in Lake Lynn, three miles above the Ice's Ferry bridge Sunday afternoon about 2 o'clock, will be held Wednesday.  Arrangements for the services will be completed following the arrival this afternoon of a sister, Miss Edith Crawford, who resides in New York.

Crawford had served the city as mayor from 1928 to 1932 and was one of the community's best known young business men.  Since leaving the mayor's office, he had been engaged in the wholesale beer business, handling the products of a Pittsburgh brewery from his West south street warehouse.

Crawford was a member of a party enjoying a Sunday outing on Lake Lynn, and the party had engaged a canoe for the day.  The former mayor is understood to have been riding in the light craft when it became beached at a point known as Squirrel Run, and Crawford got out and sat on a large rock.

A paddle of the canoe got loose and began floating out on the lake. Crawford, wearing a bathing suit, called to his friends that he was going after the paddle.  He plunged into the water, and a moment later, his friends heard him call for help.

"I've got a cramp," he called, and then sake below the surface.  Other members of the party went to his rescue but their efforts were futile, because of the 60-foot depth of water at that particular spot.

Long Search for Body.

An alarm was spread quickly and rescue efforts started.  West Virginia state police and Morgantown firemen answered emergency calls, and together with aid from Sunset beach, worked until 9:30 last night before the body was recovered 75 feet from where the former mayor disappeared from view.  Lights had been rushed to the scene from Sunset beach to aid the rescue parties in their work.

A boat carrying a group of five men with grappling hooks had remained at the scene after many other rescuers had given up their efforts and it was this group that??

... Clarence Satterfield, of Morgantown; P. C. Stainaker, Clark Linnie and Melvin Fazenbaker, Morgantown firemen, and Paul McKinney, a postoffice clerk of Morgantown.

The body was later removed to the mortuary of J. Harry Johnston & Sons, of Uniontown, where it was prepared for burial.

Luther Seabright Crawford was born June 14, 1895, and reared in Uniontown. He was a son of Luther L. Crawford, deceased, and Mrs. Auberta Rush Crawford, with whom he made his home.  He was graduated from the Uniontown high school with the class of 1913, and during the World War served his country overseas three years in the Department of Criminal Investigation, in which he had enlisted.

Returning to Uniontown at the end of the war, he became associated with his father in Crawford's drug store, later entering the auto accessories business.

Mayor 1928 - 1932

In 1928, he was a successful candidate for mayor, served four years, was a candidate again in 1932, and lost his fight for re-election by only a few votes to Mayor William C. Hatfield.

He had planned becoming a candidate for election this fall, and his cards and other campaign literature were all ready for distribution.

Crawford was one of the charter members of Lafayette Post No. 51 Drum and Bugle corps, and of the post itself.  He was also a member of the Elks, Moose and Eagles lodges.

In addition to his mother, he is survived by a brother, Albert, and a sister, Edith L. Crawford, who has been residing in New York.  His widow, Mrs. Hazel Ross Crawford, and three children, Ross, Homer and Joane, also survive.

TWO MINERS KILLED
While Cutting Clay Vein in Hogset Company's Mine
Grief reigns in two homes at Lemont where two widowed women are mourning
the death of their husbands. Smith Crawford and Thomas Ridley who were
killed by a fall of slate Friday evening in the mine of the Hogsett Coal &
Coke Company.
The two men were cutting a clay vein and about 4 o'clock in the afternoon
the roof above them gave way, the men being pinned down by a large quantity of slate
and earth. The mine was not running Friday on account of there being no eavs so
there were no miners to discover the plight of the two buried men. As a
consequence they were not found until about 1 o'clock in the morning when the night man
passed the way on his rounds. Part of both bodies were visible and Ridley was
still alive but death came about 4 A.M. Ridley was still conscious when found and
talked to the fireboss.
Crawford did the posting in the mine and was a very competent man of long
experience. Pat Callahan is superintendent of the Hogsett mine and is
considered a very careful man. He was for six years mine foreman at Edenbern.
Crawford was about 40 years of age, and son of the late Daniel Crawford.
The sonmarried Isabell Zebley of Yauger Hollow and she and a little daughter
survive. There are also the following brothers; John, William, and James of Ohio. Charles
and Amzi, Yauger Hollow and Samuel C., Uniontown. Deceased was a memeber of the Free Methodist Church.

bullet James R. CRAY died in 1937. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(2)

The truly biggest men in history have been just plain men:  Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Carnegie are examples.  This is true likewise in the narrower restrictions of individual communities, and especially so in cities like Uniontown.
Such a man was James R. Cray and it is perhaps a finer tribute to his memory to record it than to set down the long list of professional and business successes his biography reveals. A fine man, upright, honest, honorable, kindly, just and always approachable.  Mr. Cray will be remembered with friendly affection by thousands for just these virtues when his professional and business honors are forgotten.
Yet he achieved honors at the law, his profession, and the unique distinction of being partner in a law firm that at the time of the death of its senior member, the late Daniel W. McDonald in 1931, was the oldest continuous law partnership in Pennsylvania.  It was formed just three days after Mr. Cray's admission to practice in 1892 and continued without interruption or dissension of any kind for nearly 40 years.
A Democrat politically, Mr. Cray was honored by his party as its candidate for judge at a time when being a Democratic candidate was solely an honor. He appeared often in the courts and with such conspicuous success that his counsel was eagerly sought and highly esteemed.
He was a successful business man judged by the standards of business, and he was a successful banker, judged by the rules of the financial world.  But his greatest achievement - and his finest tribute - was that he never lost his rugged sense of proportion and never forgot an old friend.
And that's why his old friends will never forget him, and never cease to sorrow for his absence.
