Maize ELLIS ( -1926)

Rowland ELLIS ( -1926)

Car Runs Wild
Down Grade at
Lardin Station
Two Members of Masontown Family Die as Auto Upsets
INFANT KILLED

   Automobiles Sunday caused the death of four persons, the serious injuring of a forth while a sixth suffered lacerations of the face.

The Dead.


Mrs. Maize Ellis, negress, aged 17 years, of Masontown.
Rowland Ellis, negro, aged 9 months, of Masontown.
Patsy Moran, aged 36 years, of Orient.
——Carr, infant, of Florence Mine.

The injured.


Ben Ellis, negro, aged 35 years, of Masontown, injuries undetermined. Condition fair.
Arlene Harper, aged 10 years, of Connellsville.


   Mrs. Ellis and her nine-months-old son were killed, the child instantly, while her husband suffered undetermined injuries when the touring car in which they were driving from Masontown to Uniontown turned turtle Sunday afternoon about 5:15 o’clock as they were approaching what is known as Lardin Station on the Uniontown- Masontown road. Mrs. Ellis and her son were pinned beneath the overturned machine while Mr. Ellis was thrown clear.

   The accident occurred when the accelerator stuck after they had passed a car. Mr. Ellis worked with the gas feed trying to get it loose but to no avail. Traffic was heavy at this point and he had to vie considerable attention to his plunging automobile. As the automobile plunged down the grade toward Lardin bridge another automobile, going in the opposite direction, came in sight. By swerving his car off the road, Mr. Ellis missed a collision with the machine but he was unable to regain control as the car bounced back onto the roadway at what is known as Bear’s lane. The automobile continued to charge on in its uncertain course until it finally crashed into a bank and upset.

   The child was killed instantly, his head being crushed, while Mrs. Ellis was crushed about the body, dying a few minutes after being removed from beneath the car by a number of persons who were passing at the time. The Uniontown Hospital ambulance was called and Mr. Ellis rushed to that institution where he was given immediate attention. Although a thorough examination was given him, last night, officials in charge were unable o state the exact nature of his injuries preferring to await the outcome of X-ray pictures.

Article continues concerning other accidental injuries.

Elisha D. EMERSON ( -1871)

   Departed this life on the 28th of April, 1871, Mr. Elisha D. Emerson, Esq., of North Union township, aged 67 years, 7 months and 23 days. He was confined to his room about four weeks; during this time hes sufferings were very severe; he bore his affliction without a murmur, and exhibited a true Christian resignation. The day before his death he gave his family his dying counsel, which was to live near to God, that they might meet him in that better land above. The deceased made a profession of religion, and connected himself with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Uniontown, in the year 1834, and remained in its communion until heath. He left a wife and four children to mourn his loss. I think all who were acquainted with him will say a good and honest man has gone to his reward. Although his seat in the Church, Court House, Justice's office and family has been forever vacated by him, we trust he has gone to occupy a place in that “land of rest beyond the river.”           COM.

Man Ends Life
With Revolver

   A former Dunbar man, residing in Worthington, W. Va., for the past three years, shot and killed himself at picnic resort there at about midnight Sunday for no apparent reason. The body of the suicide victim, Thomas E. Emigh, 29, was found sprawled on top of a table at the Worthington Beach Park near West Fork River, a .32 caliber revolver clutched in his hand. He had apparently shot himself in the head as only one bullet was fired from the gun. A group of colored boys on the way to school found Emigh and notified the authorities.

   The man had been working the day before at the Western Maryland Railway Company where he was employed for three years, and was reportedly in good health and good spirits. Chief of police Russell Snodgrass, Mayor H. M. Fox and Coroner D. E. Kidd of Marion county, at a preliminary inquest, were of the opinion that Emigh must have committed suicide at midnight because there were no tracks in the snow which fell after that time.

   Married and divorced, he is survived by his mother, Mrs. Alice Emigh of Dunbar, one brother, Philip Emigh of Dunbar, and four sisters, Mrs. Harry Baker of Dunbar, Mrs. M. G. Leasher of Pittsburgh, Mrs. Marie Wagner of South Connellsville and Betty at home.

A MAN SHOT AND KILLED
On Saturday last, while a Democratic meeting was in progress at Smithfield in this county, Joseph Epley, of Springhill Tp., was shot through the neck and almost instantly killed by Henry B. Malaby, of Nicholson Tp.  Both the parties to this unfortunate affair were heads of families.  The reports in regard to the cause of this horrible murder are very conflicting, and as the matter will soon be investigated before court, we deem it not prudent to give any of the reports.  An inquest was held by the Coroner, Dr. James Fuller.

bullet Joseph EPLEY died in 1864. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.

We reproduce what we did say in our paper of May 28th, 1863, in full, so that the people can decide whether there was anything partisan in our remarks. Here is what we said and all that we said at that time.
A Man Shot and Killed! -- On Saturday last, while a Democratic meeting was in progress at Smithfield, in this co., Joseph Epley, of Springfield Tp., was shot through the neck and almost instantly killed by Henry B. Maleby, of Nicholson Tp. Both the parties to this unfortunate affair were heads of families. The reports in regard to the cause of this horrible murder are very conflicting, and as the matter will soon be investigated before court, we deem it not prudent to give any of the reports. An inquest was held by the Coroner, Dr. James Fuller. Maleby was committed by Thomas Williams, Esq. and is now in jail.
We submit, now, whether we could have said less, and whether the reasons given for not expressing an opinion, are not honorable and correct. We did not give an intimation as to the political opinions of either of the men, and never said anything that could, in the least, create a prejudice against Henry B. Maleby. We believe he has been very mercifully and impartially dealt with, and that neither he nor his friends have any ground to cavil or complain. The less his friends agitate the matter the better it will be for him.

Other soldiers are listed before and after.

   Private Francis L. Erb fell in the battle of the Marne. Following the official report of his death there were rumors that he was still alive and the parents, Mr. and Mrs. James H. Erb of Chestnut street, held out hope for a long time. It was finally established that he was killed at the same time that Sergeant Milton Bishop fell. He was attached to headquarters as a runner and had just brought in a message when the bomb wrecked headquarters. He was 23 years old.

bullet Robert ERMINIO died in 1937. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(2)

Death struck down two young brothers in Masontown Saturday night when they attempted to cross a busy street on their way to buy Christmas gifts to gladden other members of the family.  They were killed by an automobile police said was exceeding the speed laws.
Victims of the terrifying traffic mishap, which was witnessed by hundreds of shoppers on South Main street in Masontown were Lawrence Erminio, aged 16, and his brother, Robert, 15, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Erminio, Sr., of Puritan.  They were killed instantly.
Police are holding Stephen Hancheck, aged 25, of Smithfield, R.D. 1, in Uniontown city prison as the accused driver of the automobile which snuffed out the lives of the two popular Puritan Works students shortly before 9:30 Saturday night as they were on a shopping expedition in the Klondike town.
Screeching of brakes, screams of pedestrians and hurtling through air of the bodies of the two ill-fated youths cast a death-like still over what had been a scene of happy shoppers lining the Main street in the town.  The suddenness of the tragedy caused an almost unbelievable spell of horror and death as the broken bodies of the two boys were seen in the street and on the pavement close to a business house, with a distance of more than 50 feet separating the victims.
Police Chief Peter Medved of Masontown said the car driven by Hancheck and occupied by four young men from Gates, Joseph Sedorka, Joseph Rohol, Steve Smith and Edward Goltz, has "just passed at an intersection and was traveling about 60 miles an hour."
"I tried to flag down the car as it went through the traffic light, but the driver did not stop.  Up the street a few hundred yards from where I stood I heard the screeching of brakes on the machine and saw the bodies of the two boys going through the air," the officer said.
The mishap occurred in front of the Masontown National Bank.  The youths had gained the center of the wide street when the car piled into them, Medved asserted.
Lawrence Erminio, in front of his young brother, was struck with such force that he was hurled 108 feet from the point of contact - the body finally coming to a rest in front of the Thompson barber shop.  State Motor Police said the boy's body "was found exactly 108 feet from where it was struck by the machine."
The other boy, Robert, was hurled to the left of the death car for approximately 45 feet.
A third youth was narrowly missed by the allegedly speeding car, while another motorist, Aaron Margolis reported that the Hancheck car almost sideswiped his machine.
The still body of the elder boy was carefully taken to the offices of Dr. E. R. Ingraham where death had ensued from a broken neck, fractures of both legs and other injuries.  Robert was removed to Dr. R. E. Peters' offices, but he was dead upon arrival ??? fractured skull, smashed ???
H. A. Johnston, who assisted in removing the bodies to the physicians' offices and later notified Coroner S. A. Baltz, said despite the multiple fractures suffered by the victims they were not injured about the face, except for slight brush burns.
The bodies were later taken to the Yoney funeral home and prepared for burial.
Sensing the growing sentiment of the crown which gathered at the scene of the double tragedy, Chief Medved lodged Hancheck and his four companions in the Masontown lockup and notified the motor police.  Patrolmen H. M Jaynes and George E. McCloskey hurried to the jail.  Police said several infuriated pedestrians made verbal threats, but the citizenry otherwise was orderly and still stunned by the horrible climax to a busy day and evening of Christmas shopping.
The motor police transferred the five youths to Uniontown, where only the driver of the car was held in custody pending an inquest by Coroner S. A. Baltz.
Police said Hancheck was driving a 1936 Plymouth sedan belonging to his brother-in-law, Charles Hlatky, 30, of Smithfield R.D., whom he had driven to Uniontown and then went back to Masontown with his four companions.
Chief Medved said the driver told him "the boys had a date in the other end of Masontown."
In the Uniontown jail last night, Hancheck said he did not see the Erminio boys crossing the street.  He asserted that another car was approaching him in the opposite direction in South Main street, Masontown, and after the machine had passed him the "boys rushed in from of my car."
Hancheck said he came to Fayette county a year ago from Butler, Pa., where his parents and several brothers and sister reside.  He had been employed at the Gates mine.  Police said they were investigating reports of an accident Hancheck assertedly ???
In addition to their father and step-mother, the youths are survived by the following brothers and sisters, Helen Erminio, at home; Octavia, Valene and Eva Massioni, and Rose and Joseph Panzera, also at home.
Double funeral services probably will be held at 8:30 Wednesday morning in the family residence, followed by additional rites in St. Mary's R. C. church at Leckrone with Father F. S. Kondria officiating.  Burial will be in the church cemetery.

Hugh ESPEY Stone  (1792-1852)

DEATH OF MR. ESPEY

   Hugh Espey, Esq., died at his residence in South Union township, of Wednesday morning the 25th ult., after a lingering and very painful illness. Few men ever enjoyed in a higher degree the confidence and esteem on his neighbors than the deceased. He was a strictly honest, pious, unobtrusive and kind hearted man. The good name of Hugh Espey was never aspersed by the breath of slander; “none knew him but to praise him.” He was frequently called during his afflicted life by a fellow citizen to occupy public stations, and always discharged his duties with great fidelity. At the time of his death he was Treasurer of Fayette county, to which office he was elected last fall without opposition. He was a member of the Presbyterian church, and for a long time an elder in that body. When his spirit was about to take hits flight from the body he was heard to say in an faint whisper, “soon all will be well,” evincing a calm reliance in the precious promises of the Gospel. His funeral on Friday last was one of the largest we ever witnessed. Since the above was put in type we have


Genius of Liberty, Uniontown, PA, Thursday, March 4, 1852, Vol. II, No. 2, page 2, column 1


DIED— Of Cancer in the face, Mr. Hugh Espey, of Uniontown, Pa., February 25th, 1852, aged 59 years, 5 months and 10 days. It will be gratifying to the many warm friends of the deceased to know something of his history. He as born 15th September, 1792, Tyrone township, Fayette county, Pa. At an early age he made a public profession of his faith in Christ, in Tyrone Presbyterian Church, under the ministrations of the Rev. James Gutherie. About the year A. D. 1812 or 1814, he went to Dearborn county, Indiana, where he resided for some time. When the Church “Rising sun” was organized, he was elected and ordained one of the ruling Elders, September 15th, 1816, being then 24 years of age. In 1819, he was chosen Commissioner of Dearborn; and during his residence there, held other offices of trust—clearly showing the high estimate the people entertained of his ability and integrity. The citizens also wished him to run for Sheriff, but on account of ill health, he thought proper to decline being a candidate. August 12, 1822, he left Indiana, the climate not being favorable to the delicate state of his health. He afterwards came to Uniontown; and on December 25th, 1831, during the ministrations of Rev. Joel Stoneroad, he was elected Elder in the Presbyterian Church, always manifesting anxious concern for her prosperity, till death close chis labors on earth. He was elected Commissioner of Fayette county at three different times. First, October 12, 1826, continuing in Office for six successive years. Again, the third time, Oct. 16th, 1842, and at the time of his death he was Treasurer of the county. These facts speak for themselves, and but little need be added to show how greatly he was esteemed and beloved by his fellow citizens. He was truly a godly, and therefore, an honest man, and a Christian. Like Job, he was the “son of affliction;” but like him, he could say “I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand in the latter day upon the earth.” On Friday last, 25th ult., followed by a great many of his fellow citizens, his remains were committed to the dust, there to sleep until his Redeemer comes “to wake him out of sleep.”

Jesse EVANS ( -1842)

DIED

   At his residence in Uniontown, on Monday morning, JESSE EVANS, Esq., one of the oldest and most respectable of our citizens. He had attained a great age, having numbered about eighty-six years. He was born in the county of Chester, in this State, and removed to Fayette about half a century ago. He engaged in Iron Works and Agriculture, pursuits which he prosecuted with great skill and industry as long a his health permitted. Providence smiled upon all his efforts, and permitted him to acquire and long enjoy a very large estate. For many years past, he has been almost entirely secluded from the world and its concerns by the infirmities of old age. He gradually—almost imperceptibly declined in strength, without being afflicted with disease or nurtured with pain; and at last in descending to the tomb from mere debility was surrounded by all the comforts and kind attentions this world can bestow.

   In his manners, Mr. Evans was simple and unassuming. To his family he was kind and liberal without limit. He had a clear, strong, and vigorous intellect. His judgment, especially about men and things, was very accurate. In all his acts he was governed by high honor and sterling integrity. He has left behind him the character of an honest and a just man, a richer inheritance to his descendants that all his great estate.--       COMMUNICATED.

Lydia Stantz EVANS ( -1865)

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

   EVANS— Nov. 30Th, 1865, near Haydentown, in Fayette Co., Mrs. Lydia Stantz, wife of R. W. F. Evans, aged 33 years. Mrs. Evans was esteemed and loved by a large circle of acquaintances, as a kind, accommodating neighbor, and true friend, always ready to do a good set without regard to her own convenience. For many years she had been a member of the Baptist church, and during the long painful sickness which terminated her life, exhibited a degree of patience, resignation and faith that leave no doubt of her intimate admonition with “Him who died for Sinners.” Weeks before her decease, she made arrangements for the event so rapidly approaching—selecting a text and hymns, to be said at the funeral, and giving instructions in family matters. The bereaved husband, has lost a faithful. Loving companion—and the five children left, (one an infant) a friend, whose place can never be filled by mortal. May He who has afflicted—comfort--protect and guide, this heart stricken circle to the home (we believe) now enjoyed by the departed wife and mother.           COM.

Richard EVANS ( -1879)

SIX MEN KILLED

How The Boiler Explosion at Dunbar Occurred and
Who The Victims Are

Uniontown Nov 29, 1879 — The boiler explosion yesterday afternoon at the coal works of Ried Brothers, near Dunbar Furnace, eight miles below here, turns out to be worse than was at first supposed. Two men were instantly killed and one died with in an hour.

Their names were Richard Evans, J.J. Miller and Daniel McGarvey. Two more Josh Mowery and Joseph Vayone, died last night, and the sixth man, Morgan McGill this afternoon. John Dougherty, the pit boss hurt both externally and internally, and his recovery is considered improbable. Seven other men are suffering from wounds, scalds and burns, but none of them thought to be fatally injured. The disaster occurred in this way; Eight men were on the roof of the boiler house, and with the assistance of a number below were erecting a new smoke stack. The steam penetrating through the roof annoyed the men above, and Vayone, the yard boss, orderd the escape valve to be closed. This was done, and within two minutes the boiler exploded with terrific force. Daniel McGarvey, the engineer, was thrown a hundred feet in the air and one hundred and fifty feet distant into an adjoining field. He alighted on his head in a beaten clay foot path, in which his head half buried itself. The force of the fall ruptured his abdomen and let his entrails out. John Mowey was scalded to death. His flesh was cooked until it was so tender that his abdomen burst under the distention of his stomach and bowels, and these organs pushed themselves to the surface. Richard Evans was killed by a bar of iron striking him across the forehead and imbedding itself in his brain. Vayone died last night and McGill this afternoon, both from internal and external injuries. The roof was torn to shreds. Hardly a fragment as large as a man's hat can be found, except here and there a stick of wood. The general demolition could not have been more complete. With exception of McGarvey all those killed leave large families - Reid Brothers are bearing all of the funeral expenses.

COL. SAMUEL EVANS
The Oldest Member of The Fayette County Bar Laid To Rest

   Col. Samuel Evans died at the home of R. H. Lindsey, Esq., in Uniontown, Sunday, December 18, 1887. He was born at Springhill Furnace, in Springhill Township, June 5, 1800. He attended private schools in Uniontown and Brownsville, and graduated in 1820 at Jefferson College. He read law with Judge John Kennedy and in 1821 was admitted to the Fayette County Bar. He was a bright man, and soon secured a large practice. In 1816 and 1828 he served in the Pennsylvania Legislature as a member of Fayette. He was an ardent Jackson man, but supported General Harrison in 1840. He didn't like Tyler who succeeded Harrison, but soon after returned to his first love, he was a born Democrat. His father, Jesse Evans, willed him much land. It wasn't of much value when willed. Today is the most valuable estate in Fayette County. Mrs. Eliza Willson, mother of the late Judge Alpheus Willison, is his sister. Judge John Kennedy Ewing’s wife was the Honorable A. E. Willison's sister. When we first knew Col. Evans he was an old man, but he was always kind, always a gentleman.

Death of Colonel Samuel Evans

   Colonel Samuel Evans died at the residence of his grandniece, Mrs. R. H. Lindsey, of Uniontown, on Sunday afternoon. He was one of the oldest and probably the wealthiest citizens of Fayette county. He was born June 5th, 1800. He was admitted to the bar in September, 1821, and in 1820-27 represented this county in the legislature. He was defeated for the state senate the following year and retired in disgust from public life. He was an unflinching supporter of Andrew Jackson, but became a Whig in 1841 and supported Harrison for the presidency. He leaves an estate estimated at $750,000. His fine farm on the outskirts of Uniontown upon which he resided during most of his long life, contains 1,500 acres of excellent land, all underlaid with coking coal. The popular summer resort in the mountain is known as the Summit House belongs to the estate. He was never married. Mrs. Willson, mother of the late Judge Willson, is his only surviving sister. The late Judge Nathaniel Ewing was married to a sister, now dead. The Willson and Ewing families will inherit the estate. The bar met on Monday evening and passed appropriate resolutions on his death.

   WHEREAS, we feel a sense of sore bereavement in the loss of one whom we highly esteemed as a fellow worker in the cause of Christ, and with whom we enjoyed delightful friendship; therefore be it

   RESOLVED, that we cherish in grateful memory the years of successful service which he has given, not only to the work of his parish, but also to the moral and religious welfare of the whole community.

   RESOLVED, that we record our sincere appreciation of his consistent Christian life, his noble spirit, his strong convictions, his high ideals, his winsome personality, his tireless enthusiasm, and his sympathetic interest in his fellowmen. We remember him also as an able preacher of the gospel, a faithful pastor, and a humble minister of Jesus Christ who, in the spirit of his Master, went about doing good. Nor can we forget the devotion with which he offered to serve his country, making the supreme self-sacrifice of a soldier on a bed of sickness as heroically as he would have died upon a battlefield.

   RESOLVED, that, while his death seems to be untimely, we bow to humble submission and faith to the will of Him who is too wise to err and too good to be unkind. And that we assure the family of our departed brother of our tender sympathy with them in their loss of a loving husband, a devoted father, and a faithful son and brother, commending them to the special care and comfort of our Heavenly Father, who is able to mingle sweetness with the bitterness of sorrow, and who has a peculiar love and blessing for those whom He chastens. Be it further

   RESOLVED, that these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of the Connellsville Ministerial Association, that a coy be sent to the bereaved family, and that copies be given the local daily papers for publication.

   Done by vote of the Connellsville Ministerial Association, Connellsville, Pennsylvania, October 17, 1918.

Ivan EVERLY Stone  (1902-1925)

TWO KILLED AT CROSSING

Two Others Injured at Acme Grade
One Man Instantly Killed as Two Cars Crash Into
Freight Train

One man was instantly killed, another fatally hurt and two others injured when two automobiles crashed into a Baltimore and Ohio freight train at Acme Crossing, Smithfield, at 9 o’clock last evening. Other accidents mentioned

    THE DEAD
    Ivan Everly, aged 21 years, of Smithfield, killed instantly.
    Melvin DeHass, Jr., aged 18, of Fairchance, depressed fracture of the skull.
      Died in Uniontown Hospital at 1:30 this morning.
    THE INJURED
    Harry Moser, aged 40, of Fairchance, laceration of the scalp. Condition good.
    William Shanaberger, aged 42, of Fairchance, slight cuts.
    Victims from other accidents mentioned

Travelling at a high rate of speed down the hill that approaches Acme crossing from the north, Everly, driving a Ford coupe, crashed head-on into the freight train as it was crossing the roadway. Shortly after Everly’s machine struck the train, the Ford touring car occupied by Moser, DeHaas and Shanaberger also struck the train. It is not known whether the drivers observed the train or not before it was too late to apply the brakes.

The front of Everly’s machine was wedged underneath a coke car by the force of the impact. An investigation later developed the fact that Everly had been thrown clear of the wreckage, his head striking the top ridge of the car, and scattering his brains over the coke, and the body afterwards dropping alongside the roadway near a culvert to one side of the crossing.

Brakeman Sees Accident

Jess Whetsel, a brakeman aboard the train, told Coroner S. A. Baltz, who conducted an investigation, that he was standing on a car near the end of the train, watching the two cars as they sped down the road toward the crossing. He saw the cars disappear. Jumping to the locomotive on the rear, he informed the engineer that he thought the two machines had struck the train. The engineer at the rear of the train at once whistled a signal to stop but before the train could be brought to a stop, it dragged Everly’s machine for a distance of 12 car lengths. The machine driven by Moser was found in the roadway at the crossing, practically at the point where the crash occurred.

When Moser’s machine struck the train the impact forced the motor backwards into the front seat and when found, DeHass was lying in the car with his head resting on a spark plug. Moser and Shanaberger also were still in the car but neither were seriously hurt.

Trio Rushed to Hospital

Moser, DeHass and Shanaberger were picked up by Edward Lamont, a Studebaker representative, whom they passed while dropping down the hill, and rushed to the Uniontown hospital. DeHass was suffering from a depressed fracture of the skull from which he died at 1:30 o’clock this morning. Moser sustained lacerations of scalp while other than bruises and scratches, young Shanaberger was uninjured and after being given first aid was allowed to return to his home.

Everly’s Face Crushed

Everly’s face and head were crushed almost beyond recognition as a result of his body striking the top of the coke car. The remains were removed to the Vance mortuary in Smithfield to be prepared for burial. Everly was well known throughout the county as an aviator.

Everly was married and is survived by his wife, Elizabeth King Everly, whom he married last summer following an elopement to Waynesburg, Greene county, in his airplane; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John I. Everly and a brother, Everett Everly, all of Smithfield, and a sister, Mrs. A. J. Miller of Oliver.

DeHass is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Melvin DeHass, Sr., of Fairchance, and a brother, Dr. Ernest P. DeHass, of New Salem.

Both machines were complete wrecks, Everly’s car being torn to bits and after being dragged for over 400 feet, was thrown into the ditch along side the tracks.

Third Acme Accident

This is the third accident at the Acme crossing within the past three months and according to authorities a request has been made to Harrisburg that electric warning signals be placed at the crossing. However, nothing has been done regarding the matter.

It was reported last evening that the car upon which the brains of Everly were found will be taken to Smithfield yards and kept there until it is photographed.

Article continues concerning other accidents.
