Thine earthly cares are done, The mortal pang is past; Jesus has come and borne thee home, Beyond the stormy blast. Not all that generous friends could do, For ties of kindred dear, Could keep her longer in this vale – This wilderness so dear. Oh! yes, me thinks I hear her say,

“I’m safe on Canaan’s shore,
And in the realms of endless bliss,
I sing my sufferings o’er!”

FARWELL—Jan. 1st, '64, of Whooping Cough Ella Florence, youngest daughter of Henry and Catherine Farwell, aged 9 months and 26 days.
Angel babe, thou hast left us,
God hath taken thee away,
He hath taken the to Heaven,
There to dwell in endless day.

Dearest Ella, how we miss thee,
Miss thy little merry laughter,
And thy little bright eyes beaming
Full of happiness and love.

But we know thou art gone to glory
To meet the loved ones gone before,
And we hope when time is o'er,
We all shall meet on Canan's shore.

There our joys would be completed,
And our happiness know no bounds,
Where no death would ever enter
And no sorrows ever come.

In this place, July 11th*, 1862,  MARY CATHARINE FARWELL, in the 18th year of her age.
Mary was long and seriously afflicted, yet she was never known to murmur.  When it became evident to her mind that earthly life was closing, commending herself to the grace of God, she was enabled to meet the event with perfect composure.
She was an interesting pupil in the Sabbath School and constant member of the Methodist Episcopal Church; but these are now exchanged for the sublimer lessons of eternity, and the glories of the "Church triumphant," Com.

In vain friends ‘round her little bed,
Nursed tenderly her form of clay;
In vain warm tears of sorrow shed,
The Angels called our Anna away.

We miss her in her cradle,
We miss her in our arms,
We miss her early—miss her late;
But our darling’s free from harm.

In Jesus’ arms she sank to rest;
She entered heaven in Jesus’ name;
In Jesus’ robes her soul is dressed;
Through Jesus’ blood we’ll meet again.

   James I. Feather died at 11:10 o’clock last night, Monday, May 13, 1935, in his home 95 West Fayette street, following an illness of but a few days. The seventh son of Abraham and Elizabeth Feather, Mr. Feather was born in Preston county, West Virginia, May 10, 1849. At the age of 17 years, he walked from his home at Albrightsville, Preston county, to Broadford, Pa., with an older mother, where both had obtained work, James I., on the coke yard and the mother in the mine of the Cochran interests. When he made that first trek, which required three days, “Sunny Jim”, as he is better known to his intimates, had but $6.20. Returning to his home two years later he laid the sum of $2,800 in his mother’s lap and told her to ‘take it all”. Needless to say he still retained the $6.20, the basis of his fortune. It was the wish of his mother that he enter the ministry, the family being devout members of the Methodist Episcopal church. Had that occurred, his friends declare, “we would now be speaking of him as Bishop Feather instead of ‘Sunny Him’.” After spending two years on the coke yard, Mr. Feather went to Smithfield where he clerked in the store of his uncle, S. E. Feather. After a few months there he was induced by Captain James M. Hustead to go to the store of the Dunbar Iron Company where he remained for a year and a half. At the end of that time he again associated himself with his uncle at Smithfield remaining there until the uncle’s death in 1876. A lineal descendent of Mr. Feather, Guy Feather is the present owner of the business. In 1878, Mr. Feather came to Uniontown and in the years following had engaged in various enterprises, being still actively engaged in some at the time of his death despite his 86 years. In the span of his life, Mr. Feather lived in but two counties, and in but three towns, Uniontown, Dunbar and Smithfield. He lived in the residence where he died – at the intersection of Mill and West Fayette streets – for 40 years. Never having inherited a dollar directly or indirectly he did inherit what money cannot buy – good health and good blood of which heritage he owed much of his success in life. His life forces gracious acknowledgment by all who knew him of Mr. Feather’s interest in his fellow men, his fair dealing and his irreproachable ethics. Mr. Feathers is survived by a grandson, James Feather Byers, of Dunbar; and three great- grandchildren, Isa Louise and Margaret Eleanor Byers, and James Byers Cain, Dallas. Funeral arrangements probably will be completed today.

   The most appalling disaster in the history of the Pittsburg Division of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad occurred at Laurel run, two miles west of Dawson, last evening. Sixty-eight passengers and three trainmen were killed in a mad plunge of the Duquesne Limited on a sharp reverse curve, caused by some heavy timbers falling from a west-bound freight train to the east-bound track, along which the Limited was speeding at the rate of 50 miles an hour. Forty-three passengers met instant death or were cooked by hissing steam escaping from engine No. 1465. Five passengers died on the relief train between the scene of the wreck and the Connellsville station. Eight passengers and Conductor Helgroth died at the hospital. The scenes

Harrowing Scenes.

at the wreck were harrowing. Half a hundred passengers, most of them English speaking, were literally cooked alive in the smoking car. A second disaster was averted by the presence of mind of Conductor Helgroth, fatally burned at the time, Conductor Edward Baker, who was dead-heading over to Cumberland on the Duquesne, and Baggagemaster Thomas Dom. They rushed up the track the instant the wrecked train had come to a standstill and with matches flagged train No. 49, which was stopped by Engineer Mose Johnston only within half a car length of the wreck. Helgroth fell fainting alongside the track after No. 49 was stopped and died at the hospital at 3 o’clock this morning. Dom was bleeding from a wound eight or ten inches long on the head and suffering from internal injuries when he realized the danger of a second disaster after his car had toppled over almost into the Yough river and ran up the track with Helgroth and Baker. The latte was riding in the rear of the train and was not injured.

   Engineer William Thornley, a veteran at the throttle, had the big Atlantic No. 1465 doing 50 miles an hour or better on one of the best stretches of running ground on the Pittsburg Division when the accident happened. Fireman Joseph Cook, just a week off the Wheeling Division, was on the other side of the cab. The train was

Running Fifty Miles an Hour.

made up of eight cars, two Pullmans, a dining car, in charge of Conductor F. R. Nichols, three day coaches, a regulation baggage and a sealed express car. Some distance below Laurel run the Duquesne passed the west-bound freight. Thornley hadn’t started to slow down for Dawson; in fact he had his throttle wide open approaching the reverse curve just at the Laurel run bridge. While the curve is a sharp one, the track and roadbed are good at that point and passenger engineers bent on making their schedule do not shut off when taking the curve. There was not an instant’s warning that death was at hand for half a hundred passengers. Before Thornley had time to push back his throttle a notch the mighty Atlantic plunged from the track after striking several 60-foot timbers which had fallen over from the west-bound track. The engine passed over the obstruction, but the ends tilted and caught the tender, throwing it high into the air aver the top of the engine and nearly 100 yards up the track, where it landed sideways, blocking both tracks. The ponderous engine plunged in between the two tracks for a short distance and then caromed over on its side to the right. The sealed express car went clear down to the river, ploughing to the right. The baggage car telescoped the engine and landed down over the bank clear of the tracks. The first day coach followed the baggage, but the momentum of the train by this time was losing force and instead of telescoping the engine the coach veered off the right.

   Fireman Cook had the hand of the steam gauge around to the 200 mark. As the smoker, crowded to the full capacity of every seat, ripped along the side of the big passenger engine the steam dome caught it just at the window height. Wrecked and battered open as it was, every ounce of steam from the engine poured forth its hissing messenger of death. From end to end the scalding cloud shot across the interior of the car. Not a single passenger escaped the deadly summons to another world. One inhalation was fatal. Every one of the dead passengers is burned. Some of them are scalded from head to foot. The skin

Dead Awfully Distorted

came off with their clothes at the morgues in town last night and this morning as the undertakers and their assistants prepared the bodies for burial. The features of the dead were terribly and horribly distorted in many instances. Death came quickly, but its agony evidently was intense. Not a soul escaped from the smoking car. Those who were not killed outright were rescued within a few minutes by passengers from the Pullman cars and the other day coaches which followed the smoker. All of the cars were derailed, but they did not leave the road bed. The tracks were torn up for over a train length and the big timbers responsible for all the damage were splintered into hundreds of pieces and imbedded and tangled in the under mechanism of the cars. In the front portion of the coach immediately following the ill-fated smoker several passengers were killed. One of these was not taken out of the wreck until after daylight this morning. He was Chas. Zepler, who was pinned in by the wreckage close to the roof of the car. He had left his wife and son but a few minutes before the accident, going forward from the day coach to take a smoke. He hardly had time to get to the forward end of the smoking car until the crash came. Mrs. Zepler and her little son came to Connellsville last night, the former hoping against hope that her husband would turn up safe. The recovery of his body was broken to her as gently as possible and today she will accompany the remains to their home in Philadelphia. Another passenger, who stood close to the door of the second coach and the smoker was caught between the bumpers as the two cars crashed together. For 30 minutes he sat with feet dangling down between the bumpers, but held in the death grip about the waist until death relieved his sufferings. To Arthur May, an express messenger on No. 49, this passenger begged piteously either to be released or killed outright. No one could give relief, and strong hearts turned away and wept as the unfortunate man’s life passed away in violent convulsions, irantically pleading with God for mercy and the chance to see his family once more.

No Survivors.

   There is not a survivor of the smoking car able to tell the experiences of the few seconds during which the car was filled with steam. Two of the survivors, Edward Devlin and John Brownlee, at the Cottage hospital, may recover. All the balance will die, Dr. T. H. White said to a Courier reporter today.

   Edison Goldsmith was sitting about the middle of the smoking car. Shortly after leaving Pittsburg he was invited back into the dining car by Andrew Hans of Connellsville to have dinner on the way up. He declined the invitation, remarking that his upper would be waiting at home and he didn’t want to disappoint his mother.

   M. K. Smith, Division Operator of the Connellsville Division of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, was riding well up in the smoking car or the front end of the coach next the smoker, his exact place on the train being unknown. It was not until 5 o’clock this morning that Smith was identified. He had been in Pittsburg Wednesday on railroad business and Mrs. Smith expected him home by 8 o’clock. She was assured by friends that he was not on the train and that he was detained at work by the wreck. None of Mr. Smith’s friends were aware that he was among the dead until his body was taken in charge at Morris & Company’s morgue. There papers on his person gave the startling information that he was among the victims. Friends then made a closer examination and readily identified him. At 8 o’clock, Mrs. Smith was waiting for her husband to drop in for breakfast when the news of his death was broken to her.

   J. Wade Shupe, a prominent citizen of Mt. Pleasant, was not identified until about 8 o’clock this morning. Friends came for the remains this afternoon. Mr. Shupe was married and was a son of O. P. Shupe, the well-known flour mill man and capitalist.

Passengers to the Rescue.

   The passengers on the Pullman cars were not shaken up much. The dining car was well filled at the time the engine jumped the track. Conductor Nichol was hurled headlong down the aisle and dishes were scattered in all directions. A. D. Soisson and wife and W. H. Marietta and Andrew Haas were in the dining car. They were not injured. Mr. Haas and Marietta were among the first to rescue the dead and injured from the smoking car. Once or twice the wrecked cars were threatened with fire, but the flames were quickly checked. The wreck crew worked clearing up the tracks all night and had them open this morning.

   As fast as the bodies were recovered from the smoking car they were laid side by side on a high bank above the railroad. Some of them were covered with handkerchiefs, etc., while other stared in awful hideousness under the glare of many torch lights. Steam blistered the tongues and lips of the victims to an awful size and they protruded in a sickening manner. Fireman Cook was found clear of his engine. Engineer Thornley was under the wheels of the smoking car. The top of his head was crushed in. Otherwise he was not much marked or burned.

The Dead Trainmen.

   William Thornley, the engineer who lost his life in the wreck of the Duquesne Limited last night, was one of the best known men in the railroad service about Pittsburg. Mr. Thornley was first engaged in the B & O service as engineer of September 15, 1882, when he began running as freight engineman from Pittsburg on the local division to Connellsville. He knew every inch of the road, and was regarded form his first week of service as one of the most careful men in the service. He followed his freight work several years and then was assigned to passenger runs on local trains, then to through runs. When the Duquesne Limited was instituted by the B & O between four and five years ago, just after the reorganization was begun, one of the enginemen selected for the responsibility of seeing that the train was run on schedule time was Thornley. He had served continuously since in this service.

   Mr. Thornley’s home is at 4905 Lytle street, Hazelwood. He was 52 years old and leaves a wife, one son and three daughters. For a number of hears he lived in Connellsville.

   Fireman Cook was recently married and has been connected with the B & O since 1900, when he came from Baldwin, Tenn. He was also regarded as a first-class man in the service, this accounting for his promotion form a minor passenger run to the place with Thornley on the limited engines about a week ago. He was a member of Iron City Lodge No. 18, Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen.

   Conductor Helgroth was a popular passenger man. He ran extra on the through runs and had a wide acquaintance among the patrons of the B & O. He is married and leaves a wife and family at Cumberland.

   Baggagemaster Thomas Dom for a number of years made his home in Connellsville, having runs out of here. He is not dangerously hurt. He is at the Cottage hospital. Dom lives in Pittsburg and has a wife and several children.

Arrival of the Dead

   After the arrival of the relief train and the disposition of the dead and injured the crowd at the depot waited for the arrival of the morgue train. Forty-three bodies were unloaded from the train and taken to City Hall, which Burgess C. W. Patterson had thrown open. Prisoners were released from the cells to make room for the corpses. From City Hall, Undertakers Morris & Co., J. E. Sims and J. L. Stader took charge of all the bodies they could handle. Thirty-seven bodies are at Sims’ morgue, 15 at Morris & Co.’s and 16 at Straders’. All the nearby undertakers were telephoned for and came to lend their assistance in the work of cleaning up the bodies. It was a hard, long task, but under the circumstances it was very well handled.

   Today the town is in a state of intense excitement. The morgues are crowded with visitors, viewing the unidentified dead. Rumors of identifications are rampant on the streets, each new name added to the list bringing with it a new aftermath of heart-rending sorrow. Early this morning, people from all over the country flocked into town, uncertain regarding the safety of their friends known to be in Pittsburg yesterday. In spite of a drizzling rain great crowds are about the morgues, some morbidly inclined, others searching for news of missing friends. S. E. Good of McKeesport, one of the dead, was on his way to New York where he was to be married tomorrow. His brothers identified his remains this morning.

EARL FIELD, 42, PERISHES IN FIRE WHICH PARTIALLY DESTROYS HOME

His charred remains wedged tightly against the doorway which was his only exit to safety, Earl FIELD, 42, local auto mechanic and World War Veteran, Saturday morning, was burned almost to a crisp in an inferno of fire which wiped out that section of the house in which he lived at 122 Whyel avenue.  Of unknown origin the blaze may have been caused by hot ashes from a cigarette.

"Just what caused his death," stated Fire Chief BARCLAY, Saturday, "we have not yet determined.  The Steve DANKO family living downstairs, believe that he was smoking a cigarette or a pipe and that his bedding caught fire."

Chief BARCLAY, himself, furnished the opening for his fellow workers by throwing stones through the window.  Volumes of smoke like those pouring from the funnel of a locomotive poured forth.

Fireman Sam PHILLIPS was the first man on the ladder hoisted to reach the blazing room where the known presence of the man was incarcerated.  Groping through the blinding smoke PHILLIPS pushed his pike hook, searching for the body.

"The body may have been pushed toward the door by the pike hook or it may have been there before that," stated Chief BARCLAY.

And while the department continues its probe, the hearts of the community go out to Little Billy, esteemed generally as one of the most conscientious and courageous of Uniontown newsboys, as well as the rest of the members of the FIELD family.  Billy's granddad, the late Ollie FIELD, it will be recalled, met sudden death when he fell down the steps at the Eggers Lumber Company years ago while his mother, for years has been in a semi-invalid condition.  Mrs. Sarah FIELD, aged, 60, the grandmother, is also on the verge of collapse, it was reported.

The man's body was found by firemen on the floor near the door of his bedroom which, with another room, he reserved for his own use while renting the other part of the house to Mr. and Mrs. Steve DANKO.

Fire Chief William BARCLAY, first on the scene, heaved a large stone through the window of the room where the victim's body was later found.  Smoke rolled through the opening and firemen, arriving almost simultaneously with their chief, began to play water through the broken pane.

Breaking down the locked door, rescuers, notified by DANKO that FIELD was in the room, found the body on the floor with nearly all clothing burned off. 

The body was lifted to a truck of the Uniontown Water Company and Fireman Charles SEATON, driver, removed it to JOHNSTONS morgue.

DANKO, on Askren street when the alarm sounded, rushed to his home.  His wife, who was reported to have been in the kitchen at the time, had smelled no smoke in the house.

However, Charles KOPSAK, who boards with the DANKO family, had gone to another room on the second floor to dress and had discovered the blaze.

Mr. DANKO told Fire Chief BARCLAY that he had heard FIELD "groan, a couple of times about 2:30 this morning".

I tried the door of his room and it was locked but, when I rapped, he called out that, "I'm OK Steve".

DANKO said he then returned to the bed.

No one had seen FIELD since yesterday, although a light was burning in the victim's bedroom at 11:20 o'clock Friday night when DANKO came home.

A grate fire had been lit in FIELD'S bedroom.  A coal stove in the room beneath the bedroom had not been lit, DANKO told firemen, although Chief BARCLAY stated that there were warm ashes in the bowl part of this stove.

Junior TITTERINGTON and other neighbors attempted to gain the second floor, before arrival of firemen, but were driven back by billows of smoke which defied their efforts to rescue FIELD.

Investigating further, firemen learned from neighbors and other friends of FIELD that he may have suffered a heart attack during the night while smoking and that the fire resulted from the ashes of his cigarette or pipe.  He is reported to have been subject to such attacks, firemen say.  Uniontown Morning Herald; 2-17-1936

EARL W. FIELD SUFFOCATED IN FIRE

AUTO MECHANIC DEAD IN ROOM, BADLY BURNED

World War Veteran is Survived by Two sons,  Fire Damage $1,000.

Earl W. FIELD, aged 42, World War veteran and well-known local automobile mechanic, was fatally burned and suffocated at 10 o’clock this morning when fire partially destroyed his two-story frame-dwelling house at 122 Whyel avenue.

FIELD’S body was found on the floor of his bedroom by Fire Captain Allen McCLAY.  The victim suffered burns about the body and was also asphyxiated by the smoke.  He was dead when firemen, under the direction of Chief William BARCLAY, removed his body from the burning house.

The family of Steve DANKO and his wife and three children occupied the first floor of the house.  The fire is believed to have started in the upper part of the house.

The DANKO’S fled from the house and neighbors helped them to remove part of the household furnishings.  One of the DANKO boys was burned about the hands in removing a mattress. 

The fire was confined to the upper part of the house.

McClay First To Body

Damage was estimated close to $1,000.  Firemen kept the flames from spreading to nearby frame dwelling houses.

Captain McCLAY was the first to reach FIELD’s body.  The fireman that broke a window in the front of the house, gasped for air and called for a blanket and stretcher with the word to his fellow firefighters that FIELD was fatally burned and suffocated.

The body was removed to the J. Harry JOHNSTON & Sons mortuary.

Efforts were made to revive the victim but death had ensued before he was removed from the second floor of the house.

Two Sons Survive

FIELD is survived by two young sons, who make their home with his mother, Mrs. Sara FIELD, 21 Millview street.  The FIELD youths are well-known local newsboys. He also leaves one brother.

FIELD’s grandfather, William FIELD, ended his life in the same house in 1915 by shooting himself with a shotgun following financial reverses, neighbors told police.

When the fire reached its peak in the upper part of the house, firemen were compelled to crash windows and the subsequent flying of glass was noticed by Patrolman Harry CHANEY who rushed to the side of the house and made a score of children and others go to a point of safety.

Firemen, this afternoon, were still probing the cause of the fire.

FIELD conducted an auto repair shop in Whyel avenue.

FIELD, OLLIE W.

OLLIE W. FIELD KILLED BY FALL EARLY SUNDAY

     Missing his footing at the tip of the steps leading from the second floor office to the ground floor of the Eggors Lumber building in East Fayette street, Ollie W. FIELD, employe(e) of the company and formerly theatrical treasurer for both the old Grand and the West End theatres, plunged to his death about 4 o’clock Sunday morning.  The accident was discovered with(in) a few minutes by Mr. FIELD’S son, Earl, who was waiting outside the building for  his father and who grew alarmed at the long delay and entered to investigate.

     For the past few years, Mr. FIELD has been troubled with infirmities of the legs, being forced to exercise extreme caution in ascending and descending stairs.  Knowing this, his son had turned the search light of his car onto the bottom of the lumber plant’s steps so that the way down would be lighted.  When he failed to appear within five minutes after the office light had been extinguished, the son went inside and there stumbled across his father’s body, already dead from a broken neck.

Mr. FIELD had been working at the plant very late Saturday night, as was frequently his custom, and Earl had driven over to take him home.  He had pulled up outside and blown his horn after which the office light was extinguished and his father started down stairs.

Known to thousands through his work in the ticket box of the Grand and West End, Mr. FIELD’S death has been learned with regret throughout the city.  He is survived by a widow, Mrs. Sarah FIELD, and two sons, Earl and Ralph, the latter living in Allison.  His parents, Mr. and Mrs. William E. FIELD died some years ago.

Mr. FIELD was a member of the Fort Necessity Lodge of I.O.O.F., the Protected Home Circle, LaFayette Council, Jr. O.U.A.M. and St. Paul’s Lutheran church.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.  Uniontown Daily News Standard; Mon. 10-10-1927

Ronald FIFFIK Stone  (1945-2006)

HOME CARE RESIDENT DIES

   A resident of a Uniontown personal care home was hospitalized in October after another resident of the facility allegedly pushed him from a wall has died, said Fayette County Corner Phillip Reiley. On October 27, Fiffik was sitting on a 5- foot-high wall at the personal care home when he was reportedly pushed off of it, said a spokesperson for the personal care home who asked to remain anonymous. Fiffik was hospitalized the next day with undisclosed injuries, told staff at the facility that Craig A. Geness, 39, pushed him, the spokesman said. Uniontown police arrested Geness in connection with the incident. He was arraigned Friday before District Judge Robert Breakiron on one count of aggravated assault and was placed in the Fayette County Prison where he remains in lieu of $50,000 straight cash bond. Reilly said an autopsy was performed by the office of forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht in Pittsburgh. Reilly said yesterday he had yet to notify Fiffik's next of kin of his death. He also said he had yet to hear Wecht's tape recorded analysis of the autopsy. For both reasons, Reilly said an official coroner’s report will not be issued until Monday or Tuesday. "The purpose of the autopsy was to identify any medical conditions that would have contributed to his death that may be separate from the fall and any subsequent complications," Reilly said. Uniontown police Detective Jason A. Cox, the lead investigator into the October 27, incident, was not available yesterday. Geness is scheduled to appear at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday before District Judge Mark Blair for a preliminary hearing.

36 Years In One Job—“On A Trial Basis”

   When Dapper “Young” James Fike—the 40 years old—was engaged as a delivery man by Abe Cohen, May 7, 1907, it was on a trial basis. “If you do all right,” Mr. Cohen told him that first day, “you can stay on the job.” James Fike apparently did all right, for today—36 years later—he is retiring, proud of his long record of faithful service to Cohen’s and their large family of employees and customers. “I didn’t want to retire, but guess it’s better that I do at my age,” said the 76-year-old man who looks more like one of 50. “I’ve always received good treatment, always worked in pleasant surroundings and the firm has made me feel like one of the family, not like a hired hand.” Members of the Cohen firm and fellow employees are honoring “Jim” Fike at a Testimonial Banquet in the White Swan Hotel Thursday, April 9, 1942, at 7:30 p.m.

Uniontown Man Killed In Collision

by Josh Krysak, Herald-Standard

  GEORGES TWP.— A Uniontown man was killed Tuesday when the car he was driving and a 5-ton dump truck collided in Georges Township. Fayette County Deputy Coroner Marisa Springer pronounced Erick Fitzgerald, 39, dead at the intersection of Big Six Road and Route 857 at 3:17 p.m. Springer said Fitzgerald died of massive injuries. She said an autopsy will not be performed, but noted that toxicology tests will be conducted. According to state police Trooper Melinda Citero, the crash occurred as Fitzgerald was traveling in a Toyota Corolla on Big Six Road shortly after 2 p.m. The dump truck, owned by Aardwolf Top Soil Excavating of Fairchance, was traveling southbound on Route 857 when Fitzgerald pulled out of Big Six Road and the vehicles collided, Citero said. The truck driver, who was not identified, was not injured in the crash, Citero said. Both vehicles came to rest on Sutton Road, with Fitzgerald's vehicle smashed lengthwise from the impact of the collision. Traffic was snarled on both Big Six Road and Route 857 as emergency crews worked for close to an hour to try and free Fitzgerald's body from the wreckage. Helen Squires, who lives just up the hill on Route 857 from the crash site, said that serious accidents occur too frequently at the intersection of Big Six Road and Route 857 and Route 857 and Sutton Road. "This happens all the time," Squires said as she watched emergency personnel sweep debris from the road. "Just a few months ago, a guy I knew really well died right here." Squires, who said she drives a school bus for the Albert Gallatin School District, said that when she is transporting children at the intersection she is always extra cautious. "It is unfortunately a common occurrence to see fatalities and bad accidents here. I think people forget about the stop signs and at night it is very dark and hard to see. It is a scary intersection," Squires said. As she talked, troopers took measurements in front of a hand-printed sign that read, "No signs posted on this corner." Squires said the sign was put up after billboards and campaign signs were erected at the intersection blocking the stop signs from view. "At least that is no longer an issue, but something must be done," Squires said. Volunteer firefighters from Fairchance and Haydentown joined emergency personnel from the state police, Uniontown Firemen's Ambulance, Fairchance EMS and the coroner's office at the scene. McElroy Funeral Home in McClellandtown will be handling funeral arrangements, which are to be announced.
