   Brian Clint Crossland, 36, of Lemont Furnace, peacefully passed from this earth, at home, while in the loving arms of his dad, his mom and Jesus, on Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2009. Brian was born May 1, 1972, in Uniontown Hospital, the son of Merle E. and Debra J. (Eans) Crossland. Brian was filled with a large, loving heart to all that he knew. His love was displayed with a wide smile and a quick wit. He was a man of few words, but was always willing to be the listener. Brian had the strong will of his dad, humor of his Uncle Kent and the loving heart of his Uncle Donnie. Brian loved his family deeply; he was a loving son and father. Brian loved his dad and mom with all his heart! His love for his two children, Justin and Jessica, was immeasurable. His love was immense for the huge family that he came from. Brian was known to stand at his “Gram” Lena’s window and blow her kisses; which always brought a loving smile to her. Brian loved his Pap Merle and missed him greatly. Brian felt immense heartbreak with the loss of his special friend and father-in-law, Ron Fogle. Brian was at his happiest while working alongside his loving mother and father, whether working in the yard with his mom or on a vehicle with his dad. A good romp through the yard with his dog, Houz, brought laughter to his face. Brian loved Gram and Pap Eans; his Uncle Richard and Aunt Judy; and cousin, Troy Eans. Brian respected and loved his Uncle Dave Nicklow and the time that they spent together. Brian was blessed with many uncles, aunts and cousins that loved him dearly and he in return loved them. Brian loved his dogs Dexter, Sydney, and Chloe. Brian’s heart reached out to his most recent dog, Houz, whom Brian rescued from the animal shelter. He spent many hours riding along in his sports Rhino with his protective Houz sitting happily and proudly at his side; a true picture of two best friends. Brian greatly enjoyed the outdoors and was at his most peace with hunting, archery, fishing, riding motorcycles and racing quads. He loved to watch Motocross and Nascar Racing and attended many races. He was very competitive in nature. Very early in the morning, while vacationing with family at Ocean City, Brian happily competed to see who would be the first to catch a fish. Brian looked forward to his Motocross rides with Adam Bunting. Brian graduated from Laurel Highlands High School in 1990 and was schooled at Penn State for fire school, EMT and paramedic. Brian was employed with ABB of Greensburg and in the past with United Ambulance Service, Liberty Ambulance Service and Fayette EMS. Brian was a previous member of Dunbar Volunteer Fire Department, New Haven Hose Company, American Motorcycle Association, National Rifle Association and a member of United Electrical Union 625. Brian was a member of Cove Run Free Methodist Church. Brian is survived by his parents, Merle and Debra Crossland; grandparents, Jack and Marlene Eans; his great-aunt, Ruby Miller; grandmother, Lena Mae Crossland; many aunts, uncles and cousins; and a loving, caring, compassionate companion, Debbie Bunting and her son, Adam. Brian was preceded in death by his grandfather, Merle B. Crossland; his uncle, Donnie Crossland, whom Brian loved and admired; his uncle, Jack Hanna; cousin, Kristie Lowry; and great-uncle, Dewey Eans. Brian will be greatly missed and will always be our boy. Even with our broken hearts, we will cherish his memories and he will always be loved. His loving heart will never be forgotten. Brian’s challenges in life were great, but, he is at peace and in the Arms of the greatest protector, our Lord, Jesus Christ. “Be still and know that I am God.” Friends will be received from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday and 2 to 9 p.m. Saturday in the BURHANS-CROUSE FUNERAL HOME, 28 Connellsville St., Dunbar.

Lena Mae Irene CROSSLAND (1923-2010)

   Lena Mae Irene (Matthews) Crossland, 87 years old, of Lemont Furnace, Pa., left her earthly home, accompanied by her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and was led to her heavenly home on Tuesday, December 14, 2010. Her loving family was at her side. What a Joyous family reunion awaited her!!! Lena was born on January 12, 1923 in the home of her grandmother, Ada Wadsworth of Piper Hollow. She was the daughter of Bessie Irene (Wadsworth) Matthews and Robert Newton Matthews. Preceding Lena in death were her parents, and stepmother Tracy Matthews; her husband, Merle B. Crossland, son Donald Blaine Crossland, grandson Brian Clint Crossland; great granddaughter Kristie Blaine Lowry, son-in-law Jack Hanna, brothers Tom, Charles Ray and Duane Matthews. Left to cherish Lena's memories are her children: Judy Hanna, Sherry and Glenn Bryner, Susan Staggers, Merle and Debbie Crossland, Kent and Garnet Crossland, Betty and Dave Nicklow, Laureen and Pat Livingston, Becky and Ronnie Wadsworth, and, daughter - in - law Eleanor Crossland; all of Mt. Independence; 16 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, and 7 great great grandchildren; sister Maxine Gibbs and brothers and their wives, Melvin and Lois Matthews and Frank and Babs Matthews; and, several nieces and nephews; a special friend and caregiver, Peggy Fordyce and a Special Other Son, Roger Yeager, his wife Nancy and son, Jason. Lena was a member of the Free Methodist Church of Yauger Hollow. She taught all age groups in the church over the years. She taught the Men's Bible Class, was Sunday School Superintendent and on the Steward Committee for many years. She has her Exhorter's License; was Bible School Director and CYC Director for 17 years. She was on the Pastor's Cabinet, class leader, Women's Bible Study Teacher, on the Missions Board and helped to vote music into the church. Lena's grandma Emma Matthews took her to church as a child and later in life Lena became a church member and saved by the Blood of Christ with the encouragement and influence of her Aunt Rhoda Wadsworth McNutt, her sister Maxine Gibbs and her sister-in-law Twila Matthews who had already joined the church. Lena then proceeded to influence her husband, Merle, and her children to stay faithful about going to church. Lena would walk with her children to and from the church in the hollow in all kinds of weather and attended church Sunday morning, Sunday evening and Wednesday evening. Revival time saw Lena and her children in services for a week and sometimes two. Lena would take her children to the Free Methodist Camp Ground and live for a week in a tent, while all along they all attended many church services. There was no excuse accepted for her children to miss church. Mom cared deeply for her family and worried constantly for their safety. She would stand for hours at night, watching out an upstairs window, praying for all her children to get home safely; she never left the window until they were all home, too. Mom gave to all around her; never taking anything first for herself. She would set her table for meals, but was always the last to sit to eat. Always busy making sure her family had enough before she would have her meal. Mom was a very protective hen when it came to her children. She could discipline them, but, others were not welcome to try. She never had a favorite child and would tell you when you asked "Who is your favorite child?" she would say "None of them"," I love them all the same!" When asked which child is the best, her answer, "All of them". Mom loved her family dearly and worked tremendously hard and long hours each day to provide for the family. In later years, Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. She was living a Death Without Dying; but; now Death has brought her to Eternal Life!!! She ran the Race and now she has Won the Race. Alzheimer's might have silenced Mom and removed a lot of memory, but, she always knew her children, how to write her Pechin's grocery list and how to sing her hymns; she loved to sing "Jesus Loves Me", especially with the children. Mother always said her prayers with Betty and Dave before retiring for the night and asked God to protect her family. Mother had a very big liking of chocolate candy; she would hide pieces about the house, so she could have a piece when she wanted it. She was teased constantly about her chocolates, but was the first to give you her last piece of candy. Her eyes would light up and a big smile would happen when opening up a gift of chocolates. Mother was known for her episodes of non-stop giggling that would bring tears to her eyes; we children were happy to see her giggle anytime. One habit Alzheimers could not take from her was the reading of her Bible. The Bible was her favorite book and she could recite accurately from its passages. Mom loved when Merle would come to see her and say "How's my girl doing today?" Her eyes shone and even without a verbal response, it could be seen how happy she was. Mom would giggle when Kent would come into her room and break into a dance for her; she loved the attention, but would say "He must be silly." Mom loved all her children, grand children, great grand children and great great grandchildren. It made her day for any of them to pop into to see her; she loved to hear, "Hi Gram." Thank you to all the caring people that took a few minutes to visit with Mom. She wondered where lots were, and, was surprised when a visitor would come and spend some time with her. It made her long quiet hours so much more tolerable. Mom loved the holidays, picnic and birthday parties in the family; which are many; family gatherings were her Joy. To One Beautiful Caring Loving Lady, we, your children say "Thanks Mom" for all that you have done for us. We could have never had such a wonderful mother in any other. THANKS MOM AND WE WILL BE SEEING YOU SOON!!! The Circle Will Not Be Broken. Friends will be received today (Thursday) from 7 to 9 p.m. and Friday, December 17, 2010 from 2 to 9 p.m. in the BURHANS-CROUSE FUNERAL HOME, 28 Connellsville St., Dunbar, Pa.

Mrs. Crothers was a devoted and useful member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Uniontown for near thirty years.  She was of mild and gentle disposition, and much loved by those who knew her.  As an infant sinks to rest upon its mother's bosom, so did she seem to repose calmly in the love and embraces of her Savior, and breath her last out sweetly there.    B.

DEATHS

CROTHERS— In Georges tp., Fayette Co., Pa. of heart disease Mrs. Mary Margaret, wife of Mr. J. P. Crothers, aged 45 years and 8 months. The subject of this notice was born and reared near West Newton, Pa. In the year 1843 she made a public profession of religion in the Presbyterian church of Sewickly. After her removal to this county she connected herself with the Test Presbyterian church, of which she remained an exemplary member until the great Head of the church removed her from the communion of saints on earth, we trust, to the holier and sweeter communion in heaven. To her, death had no terror – she calmly fell asleep in Jesus. Like her Savior, she was ready to speak of her death; even the making of arrangements for her funeral and who should conduct the religious services of the occasion. A sorely stricken husband, with whom she had lived most happily for near a score of years, and five lovely children; together with many attached relatives and friends, mourn her departure.    Com.

Six Persons Creamated In Fire Which

Burns Mountain Cabin Home

Two Others, Removed To Hospital, Expected to Recover

Disaster came just on the eve of the Christmas season for six members of a well-known family who perished yesterday when flames destroyed their 100-year-old log cabin near Melcroft, 12 miles east of Connellsville.

Four other members of the family escaped with their lives, but two are in Connellsville Hospital suffering from severe burns as the result of making frantic efforts to rescue the victims from the fiery death-trap. Distraught relatives of the victims completed plans last night to bury their dead.

William Yothers, 79, and his sister, Annie, 70, burned to death inside the cabin where they were born.

Four young nieces and nephews, Wilmer D. Crow, 9; Jean Crow, 12; Annabelle Crow, 10, and Melvin Crow, 14, also died. Melvin succumbed in the Connellsville hospital, while the other three children died in the flaming home, being trapped in the same room with their aunt and uncle.

The father, Frank Crow, 45, and a stepson, Donald Snyder, 16, are in the Connellsville hospital where attaches say they will recover. Mrs. Katherine Crow, 40, the mother, and another child, Alfred, 2, were rescued from the flames.

Mrs. Frank Sinnamond, of 88 Pennesylvania avenue, is a sister of Frank Crow, the father of the four victims. She and Mr. Sinnamond drove to the home of relatives near Melcroft to render whatever assistance possible.

Funeral services for the four Crow children will be held at 2:30 Friday afternoon in the Evangelical church at Davistown. Rev. W. S. Barr and Rev. William Brant will be in charge. Burial of the four victims will be in the Sparks cemetery, at Indian Head.

The rites for the aunt and uncle, William and Annie Yothers, will be conducted at 10 o'clock Friday morning in the Sparks Lutheran church at Indian Head, with Rev. W. S. Barr in charge. Burial will take place in Snyder cemetery.

Mrs. Crow and her two-year-old child have been taken to the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. George Snyder, of near Davistown. Her husband suffered severe burns on the lower part of the body, and the stepson, Donald Snyder, sustained minor brush burns and injuries about both arms.

The century-old building of log and frame construction was one of the landmarks in the vicinity near Melcroft. The home was decorated for Christmas and much perparation had been made for the coming event.

From his hospital bed, Mr. Crow described how he had attempted to light a fire with kerosene, when the stove exploded, spraying him with flaming liquid.

He said he shouted to his wife and children, sleeping upstairs, then tore off his clothing as he ran outside for a ladder.

Mr. Crow said the three children burned inside the cabin apparently became confused as they ran down the only stairway, or were called into the room where their aunt and uncle lived.

Mrs. Crow and the baby were slower in coming down, he said, so he threw the ladder against the second story bedroom window.

Three coal miners, passing by on their way to work, Russell and W. S. Keller and Harold Pritts, saw the house burning, heard the screams of the children, but were unable to reach the scene in time to aid in the rescue.

Hysterical as she watched the flames take the lives of all of her children except the infant, Mrs. Crow was rushed to a nearby farmhouse where she and the baby were put under the care of neighbors. They later were taken to the Snyder home a few miles away.

The disaster struck just when the family was anticipating a joyous Christmas. The flames, in destroying the home, also claimed a closet full of presents hidden from the children, including snow suits, a new radio and many toys and candies.

The bodies were removed to the Clyde Brooks funeral home in Indian Head. All except Melvin Crow were burned beyond recognition, but the remains of each victim was retrieved from the embers.

The untimely death of this young man has left a vacuum in the circle of his acquaintances that will not be soon filled, as he was beloved and respected by all who knew him.

CROW—On the 29th ult., at his residence on George's creek, on Springhill tp., Mr. Michael Crow, Sr., in the 98th year of his age.

The deceased has been long and well known by many of the citizens of this county—has held responsible positions in the community of which he has been long a highly respectable member and in the church of his early choice.

In the few last years of his life, he suffered from Neuralgia, until life became a burden to him, and he longed for the hour when he might depart in peace and be with Him whose faith he professed, and whose grace sustained him in his declining years. Thus has passed away one of the earliest settlers of this western country—the senior member of the Lutheran Congregation of St. John's church, and one of the oldest citizens of Fayette co. COM.

bullet William CUCURA ( -1937)



Crash of an automobile at the intersection of Routes 51 and 711, near Perryopolis late Saturday night, causing the death a few hours later of a Star Junction youth, claimed the lives last evening of two more occupants of the ill-fated machine.
Frank Kalba, aged 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Kalba of Star Junction, suffered a fractured skull and succumbed in the Uniontown Hospital shortly after midnight Sunday morning.
The other victims:
Bruno DeLasta, aged 21, of Charleroi, who died at 11 o'clock last night in the Connellsville State Hospital of internal injuries.
William Cucura, 23, also of Charleroi, who succumbed last evening to a fractured skull and other injuries in the Brownsville General Hospital.
A fourth passenger in the car, John Carley, 19, of Charleroi, suffered minor scalp lacerations and was taken home Sunday morning after receiving treatment in the Connellsville Hospital.
Police said the car failed to negotiate the curve at the intersection of the two main highways and overturned after crashing into an embankment.  The victims wee extricated from the wreckage and taken to the three hospitals by two passing motorists and the Blair ambulance from Perryopolis.
DeLasta and Cucura never regained consciousness after being admitted to the Connellsville and Brownsville hospitals, respectively.  Members of the families of both victims were at the bedside when death ensued last evening.
The fourth passenger in the car, John Carley, probably escaped with his life when he was thrown clear of the wreckage.
Kalba was a popular member of the younger set in the Star Junction Perryopolis vicinity.
The four youths were enroute to Connellsville when the tragic mishap overtook them on the curve.

   Lockjaw resulting from blood-poisoning caused the death of Francis M. Cunningham, 80 years old, leading Civil War veteran of the county, Sunday morning at 8:30 o’clock at his home near Ohiopyle. While at work about an old building about a week ago, Mr. Cunningham stepped on a rusty spike, causing an ugly wound on the foot. Later blood poisoning developed, followed by lockjaw. Comrade Cunningham was one of 67 Fayette countians who purchased horses on their own account and rode to West Virginia, enlisting in the First West Virginia Cavalry, in order that they might get into the service. The regiment was commanded by Colonel Kephart. Mr. Cunningham held the record of being the only soldier of the Civil War from Fayette county to be rewarded for gallantry by a congressional medal. As an orderly sergeant at the battle of Gettysburg he took command of his company when the officers were killed and held the command to the end of the war. At the battle of Sailor’s creek, Va., his horse was shot from under him. He mounted a mule and distinguished himself in the capture of the rebel colors. When the color bearer resisted he drew his sabre when his gun refused to work, and personally compelled the bearer to surrender. General Custer witnessed the act and sent Cunningham to Washington with the colors. For this act he was given an additional $10 a month pension.

   The deceased was born in Somerset county and had resided in the community of Ohiopyle virtually all his life. He held the title of reverend, and was chaplain of the Fayette County Veterans’ association. He was also a member of the William F. Kurtz Post No. 104, Grand Army of the Republic, and came from Ohiopyle to attend many of the meetings. He had many friends here.

   The deceased enlisted at the outbreak of the Civil War in Co. H., First West Virginia Cavalry and later by reason of re- enlistment he served two years and six months as a member of Company H. First Pennsylvania Cavalry. He was honorably discharged from the service at Wheeling, W. Va., as a sergeant, in 1865. Mr. Cunningham participated in 74 battles and six skirmishes.

   The deceased was a widower. He is survived by the following children: James, Charles, Mrs. William Johnson and Mrs. Mary Cunningham, all residing in the vicinity of Ohiopyle, and Mrs. Belle Boyd, and a large number of grandchildren. Funeral from the house Wednesday afternoon at 1 o’clock, followed by services at the Baptist church at Ohioplyle.

Hugh CUNNINGHAM ( -1806)

UNION.....JANUARY 6.
MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE!

   On Monday last, Mr. Hugh Cunningham, and Thomas Johnston, both of this county, and Mr. Strong, of Kentucky, were unfortunately drowned in the Youghiogeni river, near Connellsville. It appears that Mr. Cunningham was about to descend the river to Kentucky, with a cargo of Iron, and had received into his boat near three tons of iron at Col. Meason's Forge, and set out from thence accompanied by the above persons and two negro men, with an intention of landing his boat below the bridge, to receive the residue of his loading;-- that owing to some mismanagement of the boat, she was brought sideways against one of the fenders of the bridge, which caused the iron to roll to one side, and sprung a plank:--the water immediately poured into the boat: Upon seeing this, one of the negroes on board became alarmed and clung to one of the piers of the bridge, by which he saved himself. Mr. Cunningham, and the others on board, appeared to exert themselves to effect a landing, but the boat filling so fast with water, their exertions were unavailing;--she sunk about a quarter of mile below the bridge, near the middle of the river. The only person saved was the other negro man who swam ashore. The bodies of the deceased have not yet been found.

   A very sad and somewhat singular accident occurred on Wednesday of week before last to Hugh, a little son of A. J. Cunningham, of Masontown, Fayette county. The unfortunate little fellow was in the house playing with his brother and sister (both older than he), and fell upon a stick that he held in his hand. It entered the flesh below his eye, apparently passing around and under it. Medical aid was at once summoned, and the wound examined and dressed, but all human efforts to save the little sufferer's life were vain, and on the following Saturday he breathed his last.

She was dying-our sweet Laura Bell,
She was passing like a sigh,
From the world of love and beauty,
To a brighter home on high.

She was passing like a vision,
Which may never more return;
Or like flowers which meekly wither
Round some lone, white burial urn.

Brightly dawned the morrow's morning,
Over hill and over dale,
Still with mournful hearts we lingered
By the side of Laura Bell.

William H. CUNNINGHAM ( -1865)

DEATHS

  CUNNINGHAM— In Salisbury, North Carolina, February 3d, 1865, of Diarrhea, WILLIAM H. CUNNINGHAM, of Tyrone township, Fayette County, Pa., in the 21 year of his age.

   William was a member of Co. I, 211th Regt., Pa. Vols., and was taken prisoner (with some sixty other) while on picket duty near Petersburg, Va., on the night of the 17th of November last, and remained a prisoner in the hands of the rebels, until the day of his death. After he was taken prisoner his friends could get no information whatever, concerning his fate, although every available means was used for that purpose, long and dreary were those days and weeks, and months of painful anxiety that followed, until at length the sad tidings came—he is no more—William is dead. A fellow prisoner, who has survived the cruelties of a rebel prison, brought the painful intelligence. Although William was not a professor of religion, we have reason to believe he had turned unto Him, who is both able and willing to save to the uttermost, all that come unto Him. He was a child of many prayers. His comrade, above referred to, says—“William was a good boy and loved his Testament.” May we net then fondly hope that the deep waters of affliction and sorrow through which he was forced to pass, while a prisoner, were the means, under Providence of humbling him low at the Cross, where sinners never plead in vain, that he was pardoned and sanctified and is now in that happy land, where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest, where hunger and cold and rebel cruelty are felt and feared no more. William was an interesting young man, loved and esteemed by all who knew him. But he is gone, and the place that knew him once, will know him no more forever. How mysterious the ways of Providence, truly may we say—“how unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out,” and “what I do, thou knowest not now, but thou shalt know hereafter.” May them, the sorrow-stricken friends of the deceased be resigned to this sad dispensation of Providence, and be prepared from the heart to say—“The Lord gave, and hath taken away, blessed be His holy name.” And may we all, young and old, heed the solemn admonition— “Be ye also ready, for ye know neither the day, nor the hour wherein the Son of Man cometh.”

He’s gone, he’s gone, our William dear;
 His face no more we’ll see,
His friendly voice no more we’ll hear,
 Oh, tell us, can it be.

Farewell, dear William, but we hope,
 To meet with thee again,
Where all is love, and joy and peace;
 And pleasures banish pain.
J. N. M.

CHAS. BUTTERMORE ACQUITTED OF MURDER

  Uniontown, Dec. 17— Charles Buttermore, charged with the killing of William Cunningham at Coalbrook October 9, 1902, is again a free man. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty about 5 o’clock Tuesday evening after a short deliberation. The verdict was by no means a surprise. When court convened in the afternoon and before the arguments were started, it was decided that no verdict greater than manslaughter could be found. Attorney McDonald then argued for acquittal and talked for nearly an hour. He was followed by Attorney McKean for the prosecution who talked equally as long. Judge Reppert then delivered a fair and impartial charge and the case went to the jury. Buttermore, after hearing the verdict, walked out of the court room and received the congratulations of his many friends who had stood so firmly by him during his trouble.

   Andrew Grace, one of the boarders, told about Mrs. Keffer coming u p and waking him up and saying that some one was trying to get in. Before he got out of the room he heard Buttermore ask who was there and then heard a shot. Dr. Gorman of Broad Ford knew Cunningham and said he was under treatment. Mr. McKean wanted to prove by this witness that deceased was hard of hearing. But the defense objected and the witness was withdrawn. Charles Buttermore, the defendant, said he had lived at Coalbrook three years. Married Mrs. Keffer’s daughter, and clerks at Trotter store. Went back and forth every day. Cunningham had only been boarding at Keffer’s a short time. On the morning of October 9, was awakened by Mrs. Keffer, who said some one was trying to break in. Took the revolver along and was followed down by his wife and Mrs. Keffer. Went to the kitchen door and asked who was there, but got no reply. Opened the dfoor and saw a man standing there with his hand up to his head. He jerked his hand down quickly. Witness then fired. Cunningham stepped back and fell and then it was that his identity was discovered. When Andy Grace came down the body was carried into the kitchen. He only said, “Piper,” which was his nickname. Witness said to his wife: “My God, I’ve shot Piper.” Then he sent for Morris Head, the superintendent, and others. Witness then came to Connellsville and gave himself up.

DIED— On the 17th inst. At his residence in George Township, Mr. GEORGE CUSTEAD,* in the 86th year of his age.

He has left an aged widow, and nearly two hundred lineal descendents to lament his loss. It is remarkable that according to the family chronicle, the father of the deceased was the first child born in the city of Philadelphia. * he was for nearly 60 years a member of the Dunker Church.

James E. CYPHERS ( -1903)

JAS. CYPHERS KILLED

At Glenwood This Morning
Taking His Run Out on No. 14

KNOCKED UNDER LOCOMOTIVE

By Stupid Hostler Who Backed Another
Engine Into His—Died at
Mercy Hospital From Injuries—
Lived in New Haven

   James Cyphers, one of the best known passenger engineers on the Pittsburg and Connellsville divisions of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, was killed at 5:30 o’clock this morning in the Glenwood yards, or rather, he received the injuries at that hour which resulted in death at the Mercy hospital at 8 o’clock. Engineer Cyphers was called this morning to take out train No. 14, due here at 8:50, which he has been hauling regularly and extra for years. The train makes an early start from Pittsburg and the engineer usually gets down to the Glenwood shops about 5 o’clock. Cyphers had locked his engine, No. 882, over and was ready to back her into Pittsburg to couple onto the Cumberland accommodation. He had just oiled the big locomotive and was in the act of stepping up into the gangway when there was a crash from the rear and he was thrown across the rails directly between the tender and the engine. The ponderous wheels passed over his legs close to the hips, mangling them so that amputation would have been necessary could any hopes of recovery have been entertained. He also suffered internal injuries which would likely have caused death had he not died of shock from the other injury. The accident was caused by a green or stupid hostler who was a foreigner. He climbed aboard an engine standing in the Glenwood yards and started to back it up. It struck Cyphers’ engine, throwing him beneath the wheels as stated. The body will likely be brought to Connellsville on train No. 46 this afternoon. The arrangements for the funeral have not been announced.

   James Cyphers’ death will come as a shock to scores of railroad men from Pittsburg to Cumberland on the Baltimore & Ohio railroad. He was a veteran on the road and for upwards of a score of years had been hauling a passenger train. He was a lucky man though about a year ago he was badly hurt in a wreck on No. 14 down the road. His record was a good one as attested by the fact that he had been so long in the passenger service. He was always a hard and willing worker, ready to double out or hold a run down until the rush was over, if the railroad officials happened to be caught with a particularly heavy spell of travel.

   Deceased was 53 years old and is survived by his wife, four sons, Harry, Edward, Jess and James, all of New Haven, and Miss Gertrude at home. He lived on Second street, New Haven. Engineer Cyphers was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, in which he carried $3000 insurance. He was also insured in the railroad company’s relief department for $2000. Mrs. Cyphers was in Pittsburg attending a meeting of the ladies’ auxiliary of one of the railroad orders when the accident happened.

JAMES CYPHERS’ FUNERAL

A Large Assembly Pays High Tribute
to Dead Engineer

   The funeral of the late James Cyphers of New Haven, held Sunday afternoon in the Methodist Episcopal church, was one of the largest gatherings ever held in the church. The aisles were filled with chairs and the front of the church was crowded with railroad men and friends of the deceased. Weatherbeaten engineers and sweet-faced children sat side by side on the long alter rail, while many stood with the choir and around the pulpit. The crowd is estimated at 800 people. A myriad of flowers, tributes from the many friends of the dead man, surrounded the alter and the casket where the bruised and broken remains lay. The burial service was beautiful in its sweet simplicity from the time the pastor, Rev. Mark A. Rigg, led the funeral cortege up the aisle until the great organ pealed forth its last sympathetic chord. The funeral services were in charge of Division No. 50, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. J. H. Nahon was chaplain, J. D. Cunningham, and S. V. Ulsh marshals. Following were the pallbearers; William Bradley, George McCartney, John McMunn, John Layton, Patrick Kane and John Kerns. Division No. 370 of Pittsburg and No. 376 of Scottdale, of the Brotherhodd of Locomotive Engineers, attended in bodies. The local divisions of the Brotherhood of Railway Firemen and the Brotherhood of Railway Conductors attended in the same manner, as did the Ladies’ Auxiliaries of these orders. The remains were laid to rest in Hill Grove cemetery.
