Dolores Elaine Jones ANDERSON (1935-2005)

Dolores Elaine (Jones) Anderson

Dolores Elaine (Jones) Anderson was born to John Henry Jones and Gwendolyn (Jackson) Jones on December 18, 1935, in Uniontown, Pa. She is now reunited with them both.

Early on Dolores became known for her desire to make things right. Always an activist long before it was popular, she helped organize the First Black Senior Prom for her Uniontown High School Class of 1953 since she and her then "colored" classmates were not welcome at the hotel that was hosting her school's prom that year. That same year she migrated to the Midwest, first to Cleveland, Ohio, then finally settling in Chicago, Illinois.

For the next decade she made her mark in a variety of fields from Nursing Assistant to stock clerk until 1964 when she became both a wife and a mother to her only child, Nicole. Soon a single parent, she juggled raising a child, business school and all kinds of work. During the mid seventies she began her undergraduate studies at Mundelein College (now joined with Loyola University of Chicago) and later worked for many years at The American College of Hospital Administrators and also Harris Bank. She retired in 1989 to take on the responsibilities of caring for her then 84-year-old Mother. Best of all Dolores helped people and fixed things.....BIG things! She would organize, boycott, protest, petition, register voters, house family and friends, care for the sick, and befriend the friendless. If she had it and you needed it, it was yours. If she didn't have it, she knew just who to tell you to call.

One of her proudest accomplishments was her self-published book "Reflections on Yesterday: Then and Now", a 365-day calendar full of well-known and little known black history facts. She made an incredible and complete recovery from a lengthy hospitalization last summer, leaving everyone stunned when she left us on Wednesday, June 29, 2005.

Rejoicing through sadness are her only daughter, Nicole (Anderson) Bond, her big sister, Jacqueline ("jack sprat") Jones, and her dearest nephew, Carlton Black, Jr., as well as generations of cousins and so very, very many friends. This obituary was provided by the MURIEL E. LANTZ FUNERAL HOME, 297 East Main Street, Uniontown, Pa.

Having held the office of Justice for eighteen years, and re-elected for the seventh term, and in the church the offices of steward, trustee, and class-leader for thirty-one years, he was not one to hide his light, but wherever he was, acknowledged Christ. Christ did not forsake him in the dying hour. His own words were, "Death has no terror for me: I have fought a good fight." To his wife who asked. "Is the valley of death dark?" "No, it is lit up." Thanks be unto God who gave him the victory. W. D. STEVENS.

Wellington D. ANDERSON (1858-1904)

W. D. ANDERSON STRICKEN
In Serious Condition at His Home on North Pittsburg Street

W. D. Anderson, member of Town Council from the Second Ward, was stricken this morning about 8 o’clock and is now in a very serious condition. Mr. Anderson’s left side is paralyzed. He complained last night of feeling ill, but it was not until shortly after 8 o’clock that he suddenly became worse and later was stricken.

While Mr. Anderson’s physicians admit that his condition is critical, they have strong hopes that he will rally and regain his old health. He has always been a robust man and except for several months that he was laid up at his home on North Pittsburg street with rheumatism, about six years ago, he has always enjoyed the best of health.

W. D. ANDERSON DEAD
He Expired This Afternoon at Two O’clock of Paralysis.

Wellington D. Anderson, member of Town Council from the Second Ward, died this afternoon at 2 o’clock. Up to Monday evening he had been in apparently good health. That night he took ill and at 8 o’clock Tuesday morning the family physician, Dr. M. B. Shupe, was called. Mr. Anderson grew worse and symptoms of paralysis soon set in. At 9 o’clock his left side was paralyzed. From that until the time of his death he did not rally. He was not conscious for some hours before his death and from the time he was stricken he could not speak.

A legion of warm friends from all over Fayette and Westmorland county will sincerely mourn the death of W. D. Anderson. Twenty years ago he came to Connellsville and engaged in the livery business. Before that he had been in business in Scottdale. In his younger days he taught school in Westmorland county. Mr. Anderson was born in Stahlstown, Westmoreland county, on January 22, 1858. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Adaline Morrow Anderson, and two children, Claude, a student at the West Penn Medical College, Pittsburg, and Miss Elizabeth.

About two years ago, Mr. Anderson sold his livery stable on Church place and since then he had not been actively engaged in business. Last February he was elected a member of Town Council from the Second Ward for a two year term. He was a Trustee in Connellsville Lodge No. 503, B. P. O. E., a member of General Worth Lodge No. 386, I. O. O. F., and several other orders.

He was born on Tuesday, October 19, 1920 to Louis Ansell and Mary (Shultz) Ansell in Monarch, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. Paul grew up on the family farm, where he learned the value of hard work. He would feed the chickens, gather eggs, milk the cows, and deliver milk to customers before school. Even with more chores after school, Paul participated in school plays, clubs and played the violin in the orchestra. Paul graduated as an Honor Student in 1939 from Dunbar Township High School. His dream was to attend California College and become a mathematics teacher. However, his father died in 1941 and Paul chose to care for his mother and their 136 acre farm. On Sunday, August 12, 1945, Paul married Viola Maye Herniman and was dedicated to her for 65 years, until the moment of his passing. Prior to moving to Uniontown, Paul was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Scottdale, Pennsylvania. Paul had great love for the Lord and he taught others how to love and serve through his perfect example. While many thought he was too young to serve, he was ordained an Elder at age 27. He also served as Sunday School Superintendent, sang in the choir and was a member of the Scottdale Choral Society. In 1962, Paul and Viola purchased Auslanders Wallpaper and Paint Store. His reputation for honesty and integrity made him a successful businessman. Paul was a dedicated member of Trinity United Presbyterian Church. He shared his gifts and talents by singing in the choir for over 45 years, playing dart ball, serving as the Secretary/Treasurer, and teaching Sunday School for many years. He was also active in Redstone Presbytery and was a member of the Ministerial Relations Committee. Paul served as Clerk of Sessions for a total of 22 years and was Church Treasurer for 24 years, retiring in 2008, at age 87, to care for his wife. His family mourns his passing and misses him more than words can say. He was the 'glue' that held the family together. His wonderful smile is dearly missed. He greatly enriched the lives of all who knew him. Paul was the quiet strength, the listening ear, and the unselfish giver. He was preceded in death by his parents; and his seven siblings, Ruth Pletcher, Gladys Harshman, John, Florence, Ora Jager, Ellis and Howard.

She had few equals and no superiors as a kind-hearted and Christian lady. At the early age of thirteen she gave her heart to God, and made a public profession of religion, and united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church at New Salem. Early in the Fall, her health began to give away. For a time she and her friends entertained hopes that she might recover; but it was not long until all hope of recovery was gone. She bore her affliction with great patience and Christian resignation, and died strong in the faith of the Gospel.

Johnston funeral directory of Masontown, had the body in charge.  Her funeral was very largely attended by relatives and friends of both Nicholson and German and Georges townships where she was well known, besides people from Masontown, Uniontown, Brownsville and Charleroi.  The active pallbearers were Homer Blackford, Dutch Arison, Dale Arison, Paul Sangston, Glenn Sangston and Clyde O'Neal.  The honorary pallbearers were Pauline Sangston, Thelma Blackford, Frances Gray, Ruth Franks, Annaline O'Neal, Mildred Dolan and Edyth Phelps, all of whom carried beautiful floral tributes.  Nora H. Arison was born May 1, 1879, and died August 17, 1931.  She was a daughter of William R. Richey and Lou H. Gray.

Mrs. Nora Richey Arison was a member of the Grace Chapel Presbyterian church.  It has been the writer's privilege and pleasure to have known her from the time she sat on her mother's lap as a little babe.  He has seen her pass through childhood to womanhood.  Her life has been a model one.  She was kind, courteous, and helpful.  As her uncle, it has been his privilege to have known her well.  She was loyal to her church, its pastor and its people.  During her long illness, she showed great patience.  Her heart was loyal and devoted to her Lord and Master.  It was her great happiness to commune with Him.  Just four days before she "crossed the bar," she requested that we go to Him with her in prayer.  She had completed her earthly mission.  The summons came for her to move out of her weakened body into that beautiful home beyond the gold????

George ARTIS ( -1867)

  TERRIFIC EXPLOSION ON THE BALTIMORE AND OHIO RAILROAD— A terrible locomotive explosion occurred near Littleton, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, about 35 miles from Wheeling, on Thursday afternoon, by which three men, Otto Burrell, George Artis and R. Johnson, were almost instantly killed. The locomotive or engine was attached to the western bound lightning express freight train, and was ascending the grade near Littleton when the explosion occurred. The three men were on the engine, Burrell being the supervisor of trains, Artis engineer, and Johnson fireman, and were killed instantly. The locomotive was thrown completely over. The body of Artis was blown forward and to one side about a hundred yards. He was still living when approached, but expired in a few minutes. Mr. Burrell was blown backward, alighting not far from the rear of the train. The conductor saw him fall, and says he came down directly on his head. He was dead when picked up. Mr. Johnson was blown directly over the bank, some twenty-five or thirty feet, and was instantly killed. Every stitch of clothing was torn from his person, and was found, some of it hanging on the telegraph wires and the rest of it in the tree tops. The tender was torn to pieces, and the car next to it was turned over. The rest of the train was uninjured. Nothing is known of the cause of the explosion. Wheeling Register

GERALD P. ARTIS
Found dead in bed Thursday morning at 8 o'clock by Fireman Harry Cypher, Gerald P. Artis, well known Connellsville contractor, is believed to have passed away during the night from a stroke of apoplexy.  Mr. Artis, aged 58, had been living alone for the last few years in bachelor apartments in Carnegie avenue, occupying two rooms below the Cypher apartment.

When the fireman heard no noise in the apartment, and aware of the habit of Artis in arising early, he entered.  Indications were that Mr. Artis had been dead for several hours.  Mr. Artis was born and reared in Connellsville and had constructed many homes there.  He is survived by his widow, Margaret, a daughter, Thelma, and two sisters and a brother.

The body was removed to the funeral parlors of Director Milton V. Munk.  Funeral arrangements will be announced later.

Heart disease was the cause of death. He was a son of Christy and Mary A. Artis, the former being decease. He is survived by his mother, one brother and one sister, Mrs. Harriet Wagoner, wife of George Wagoner of Connellsville street, and Irvine Artis of Dunbar township.

MRS. MARY ANN ARTIS OUTLINES PLANS FOR
FUNERAL IN WILL AND MAKES BEQUESTS

UNIONTOWN, June 3 — The will of the late Mary Ann Artis of Dunbar township was filed for probate and recorded yesterday afternoon, and through its provisions, Irvin Artis and Harriet Wagner, wife of George Wagner of Dunbar, receive practically all of the estate, some small donations being given relatives. The original will is dated January 22, 1904, but by a codicil dated February 22, 1907, the will is considerably changed. A marked coincidence of the will is that it was originally made January 22, a codicil added February 22 and the testatrix died May 22.

She makes provision first for the interment of her body in Franklin cemetery, the services to be conducted according to the rites of the Methodist Protestant church, and the body to be buried alongside that of her deceased husband, Christy Artis. A request is made that the services be conducted by Rev. D. E. Minerd, if living, and in the event of his death by the pastor of the church of Dunbar.

To Annie Artis, widow of John A. Artis, if given 41, while a similar sum is given to an adopted son of the same, Samuel. The deceased’s dower rights in a farm near Ferguson sold to J. T. Feather at administrator’s sale and all of the claim of the late Etta Wagner in the estate of her late husband, as devised to her by the said Etta Wagner, as well as $1,000 in the Dunbar bank, is given under the will to a son, Irvin Artis, a daughter, Harriet Wagner, and a granddaughter, Isey Byers, wife of John Byers. However, this bequest is revoked in the codicil and the following change is made; $50 to each of those made and the residue divided between the son and daughter.

In the will not disturbed by the codicil, is bequeathed the dower rights in the John A. or Annie Artis property to the son and daughter, as well as all the residue of the estate. The witnesses to the will are John M. McDowell, Daniel K. Cameron and Mrs. W. S. Seamans, while the witnesses to the codicil are Martin B. Pope and Daniel K. Cameron. John M. McDowell is named as executor under the will. The value of the estate as given in the application for probate is fixed at $1,000.

Harmon Kephart AUGUSTINEPhoto  ( -1937)

TWO YOUTHS DROWN AT REIDMORE

James Daniels Loses
Life in Vain Effort
To Assist Companion
Harmon Augustine Seized
With Cramps in
Deep Water

BODIES IN WATER
FOR 45 MINUTES

   Tragedy stalked a party of three boys, happy at play at the Reidmore home of State Fish Commissioner Kenneth A. Reid, near South Connellsville, Sunday afternoon at about 2:15 o’clock and two of them perished by drowning, one going to his death as he made a valiant effort to save his playmate from the watery grave.

The dead:

   Harmon Kephart Augustine, 15, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Clarence Augustine, and a grandson of former State Treasurer and Mrs. Harmon M. Kephart of 306 South Pittsburg street.

   James Daniels, 13, son of Mrs. Leona Daniels and a grandson of the Mrs. J. Emmett Collins of 301 Grandview avenue. Reid “Sonny” Kephart, 11, son of Mrs. Gertrude Kephart, widow of John Kephart of Philadelphia, who has been staying at the Reid home, had a narrow escape from death when he first went to the rescue of his cousin, Harmon, after the latter had dived into 10 feet of water off the bridge at one end of the lake.

   The Kephart boy, however, was able to free himself from the grasp of Harmon and sought to obtain an inflated inner tube with which he had played on other occasions to take to his kin who was floundering in the water, apparently seized with cramps. It was another whim of fate that traded the life of the Kephart boy for that of Jimmy Daniels, as the latter was on the bank when Harmon cried for help. He saw “Sonny” make his rescue effort and then go for the inner tube. Without hesitation, he dashed into the water and went to the aid of the Augustine boy. As he did the latter, grasping for something to help him, took hold of Jimmy and the two went beneath the surface to their graves.

   Harmon Augustine, who had been spending the summer vacations with his father at Addison, had come to Connellsville on Saturday so he could attend mass at Immaculate Conception Church as usual on Sunday morning. He had received his communion at that time. He left the Kephart home shortly after noon and started for Reidmore to spend the afternoon with his companions—his cousin “Sonny” Kephart, who was staying with his mother at the Reid home, and James Daniels of Grandview avenue. The Augustine boy was making his first trip to play with his two companions of former years at Reidmore, Jimmy and Sonny, however, had spent practically all of their vacation thus far together at the Reid home. Jimmy had planned to enter a hospital this week to have his tonsils removed.

   The trio had not been in the water when they started for the lake. As youngsters usually do, they started for the lake with the jovial laughter of “last one in is a so and so” on their lips and Harmon was the first on the bridge. He immediately leaped in. It was the short span of two minutes that followed which cost the lives of the two popular lads. In the vicinity were the mother and uncle of “Sonny” who rushed to the scene when they heard the latter’s cries but they were unable to find the victims.

   The three decided to go swimming, Harmon was the first to get to the water as they headed for the bridge at one end of the lake. He jumped in at a point where it is about 10 feet deep. Undoubtedly seized with cramps as he plunged into the cold water, the youth began floundering about and cried for help. “Sonny” Kephart, trailing him on the dash to the lake, leaped to the rescue of his cousin. As he attempted to aid Harmon, “Sonny” felt the taller and older boy, in desperation, grab him and pull him under the water. He managed somehow to break away as Harmon momentarily relaxed his death grip and then he swam in the direction of an inflated inner tube with which he had played on previous occasions. “Jimmy” Daniels, who was on the bank at the time, leaped into the water to go to Harmon’s rescue despite the fact he could not swim expertly. As the Kephart boy was after the tube and his back was turned, he failed to notice what developed when the Daniels youngster plunged into the water, but authorities are inclined to believe that when the latter came within reach of Augustine he was grabbed by the frantic swimmer and that both went under the water. “Sonny” shouted for help. His mother, who was sitting in the distance, and an uncle J. Donald Reid, raced to the scene. They went into the water in a futile effort to find the bodies. Even search from a boat was fruitless. Meanwhile some person who had been attracted to the scene put in a call for the Connellsville Fire Department and Fire Chief William E. DeBolf has an inhalator rushed there. Later grappling hooks were dispatched and it was through the use of these that the bodies were recovered from the watery graves about 45 minutes after the drownings.

   Both the city and the South Connellsville fire departments were on the scene. Members used a pulmotor in an effort to revive the boys but to no avail. The body of Augustine was removed to the funeral parlors of Deputy Coroner Milton V. Munk and that of Daniels to the undertaking establishment to Charles C. Mitchell where they were prepared for burial.

   Harmon Kephart Augustine, the only child of J. Clarence Augustine of Addition and Sarah Kephart Augustine of New York, was born in Merlon, Philadelphia, on March 5, 1922, and had spent the greater part of his life with his maternal grandparents, former State Treasurer and Mrs. Harmon M. Kephart of the Masonic building, South Pittsburgh street. While the Kepharts resided in Philadelphia, the youngster attended the Waldren Academy there. Since coming to Connellsville, however, he had been attending classes at the Immaculate Conception School and next month would have been enrolled as a member of the junior class of the High School. The Augustine boy is a grand-nephew of State Supreme Court Justice John W. Kephart of Ebensburg, the latter being a brother of former State Treasurer H. M. Kephart of the Masonic Building. The youth’s uncle, John W. Kephart, father of “Sonny” Kephart, had been killed in an automobile accident on Christmas Day five years ago as he was returning to Connellsville from Addison.

   Jimmy Daniels was the great-grandson of Clark Collins, Connellsville’s last Civil War veteran who died several months ago. His grandfather, the former postmaster, passed away two years ago and it was about two months after that that a brother of the young hero of the drowning tragedy passed away. James Daniels, the son of Mrs. Leona Daniels and a grandson of Mrs. J. Emmett Collins of 301 Grandview avenue, widow of a former postmaster here, is survived by his mother, his maternal grandmother and a sister, Jane, of Pittsburgh. A student in the Cameron Building, he had been very active in the two junior organizations, the popular Junior Drum and Bugle Corps and the recently formed Connellsville School Band. He was an active member of Troop No. 5, Boy Scouts, of the First Methodist Episcopal Church.

   The body of the Augustine boy was to be removed this afternoon to the home of an aunt, Mrs. John Kephart, at 112 West Peach street, where it will remain until the time of the funeral. Services will be held Wednesday morning with the cortege meeting at the home at 9:30 o’clock followed by requiem high mass at Immaculate Conception Church at 10 o’clock. Rev. Henry A. Geibel, pastor, will officiate. Interment will be in St. Joseph’s Cemetery.

   The Daniels funeral service will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock at the Collins home with Rev. Dr. W. H. Hetrick, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, officiating. Burial will be in Hill Grove Cemetery.
