Charles HERBERT (1873-1942)

Two Miners Trapped by Slate Fall

   Charles Herbert, 69, of Vanderbilt and Daniel M. Keefer, 62, of Kingsview, near Scottsdale, were killed when caught in a slate and coal fall at the William H. Dull and Sons mine on the Piersol Farm near Spillway Lake, Saturday morning. Their deaths increased to four the number of men killed in mine accidents in two days. Deputy Coroners Frank Galley of Vanderbilt and Ira Blair of Perryopolis investigated.

Article continues concerning other deaths, then returns to Charles Herbert.

   The two miners, both veterans of many years were trapped about 325 feet from the entrance to the slope mine. Earl Lloyd, 55, and Alva Prinkey, 60, both of Vanderbilt, who were working with Herbert and Keefer, jumped clear and escaped injury.

   Prinkey later told investigating officers he heard the roof cracking and called to his companions to seek safety. He and Lloyd managed to win freedom but the other two were trapped. Keefer’s body was recovered Saturday afternoon at 3 o’clock but that of Herbert was not taken from the workings until Sunday morning at 5:45 o’clock.

   Rescue squads from nearby Frick Mines were summoned to the scene and worked under the direction of Mine Inspector Edward Wilkinson in clearing the debris and removing the men, both of whom were badly crushed.

   Keefer’s body was only partly covered by the initial fall. Before rescue workers could place supports for the weakened roof a second fall buried his body. Rescue parties reported Herbert’s body was approximately ten feet further back in the mine that that of Keefer.

Article continues concerning another mine accident, then returns to Charles Herbert.

   Charles Herbert was a miner with 50 years’ experience. He was born April 29, 1873 at Morgan Station, the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Lester Herbert. He later removed to Vanderbilt and had lived there since. He married Elma (Emma) Vernon in October 1896. She survives together with five children, Earl Herbert of Phillips; Lester Herbert of Richeyville; Otis Herbert of Vanderbilt; James Herbert of Bitner; and Mrs. Marguerite Pierce of Buena Vista: three sisters, Mrs. Rose Laughrey of Lemont; Mrs. Sarah Chritchfeld of Uniontown and Mrs. Agnes May of Carmichaels; a brother Joseph Herbert of Vanderbilt; 25 grandchildren and one great grandchild.

   He was a member of the East Liberty Presbyterian Church but later became affiliated with the Flatwoods Baptist Church. Funeral services will be held at the home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock followed by additional rites in the Flatwoods Baptist Church at 2:30 o'clock. Rev. Harlon Wise, pastor of the church, will officiate, assisted by Rev. Walter E. Merrick, pastor of the Vanderbilt Christian Church. Burial will follow in the Flatwood Cemetery.

Nancy HERBERT died in 1854. Her obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(17)

Near Connellsville, Sept. 29th, Mrs. Nancy, wife of Mr. Hiram Herbert, in the 60th year of her age.
The deceased was a professing christian, and there is evidence that she was one, really. She took intelligent views of the truths of the christian system, separately and in their relations one to another. Her convictions were abiding, and her comfort in believing seemed to be but little varied. —She could say, when near death that the promises of the Bible were precious to her.
For more than a score of the last years of her life, she had been much afflicted. Her afflictions wrought patience. When you heard her speak, she spoke as one resigned and who ever wished to be, whatever the issue of her repeated attacks might be.
She is now taken away. the little church, of which she was one of the first members, do not number her among them.—Her family and a large circle of relatives and friends do not name her as one now with them, but "if we ____ that Jesus died and rose again, ___ also which sleep in Jesus will ___ with him"

Carrie Allison HERRINGTON Stone  (1887-1965)

Brownsville Woman
Burned In House Fire

   An aged Brownsville woman was critically burned in a fire at her home this morning. Mrs. Carrie Herrington, 78, of 90 Angle St., was carried from her second-floor bedroom after she was trapped in the burning building. Taken to Brownsville Hospital in the police ambulance, she was listed in critical condition late this morning. Police said she was “badly burned.” Mrs. Herrington resides in the two-story brick home with her brother, C. S. Allison, and a niece, Elizabeth (Dibby) Allison. They were not hurt.

   Brownsville South Side Fire Chief William Pursglove said the blaze caused extensive damage to the interior of the house. He said the fire was apparently started as the result of an overheated furnace and spread quickly from the basement through the structure. South Side firemen received the initial alarm at 7:15 and 30 minutes later called for aid from North Side firemen.

   Mrs. Herrington was asleep when the fire broke out and was unable to leave her bed. Firemen were hampered in their efforts to enter the burning building due to the thick smoke and intense heat. A ladder was raised to the second-floor bedroom of Mrs. Herrington and South Side fireman Eugene Enfield entered the room and carried the elderly lady to safety. Ladders were placed at various locations around the house and hose lines played on the fire with an adequate supply of water furnished from a fire hydrant near the scene. North Side firemen returned to their station at 9 o’clock while South Side volunteers remained to assist the family in mopping up operations.

Adolph Herskovitz Dies in Pittsburgh.
Adolph Herskovitz, aged 69, West Main street jeweler and linguist and one of the best known men of Uniontown, died this morning in Pittsburgh of dropsy following an illness of many months with a complication of disease.  Mr. Herskovitz's death came in the private hospital of Dr. William Finkelpearl, a Pittsburgh specialist, who had been treating Mr. Herskovitz since last summer.  Despite the fact that Mr. Herskovitz had been seriously ill for a long time, news of his death today came as a shock to many friends.
Mr. Herskovitz came to Uniontown from Pittsburgh about 25 years ago.  He had been an interpreter in the city and soon became court interpreter here owing to his command of many languages.  In all Mr. Herskovitz spoke and read nearly 30 languages and dialects.  He was born in Hungary.
Mr. Herskovitz was born in Nagy Mihaly, Hungary, in the state of Zemplin near Kaschau, and received a splendid education in his native land.  Early displaying a gift for languages, he continued his student of the tongues of Central Europe until he was at home with men of many races.  This gift later became of great value to him in Western Pennsylvania.
After serving for years as interpreter in the local courts, justices' offices and for attorneys, Mr. Herskovitz entered the jewelry business and had prospered.  Mrs. Herskovitz was a graduate oculist and optician and combined with the jewelry trade a constantly extending business in optical goods.  Mrs. Herskovitz, with one son, Joseph, now 19 years of age, survives.
Mr. Herskovitz was a member of many organizations and took a prominent part in their deliberations.  He was one of the founders of the local Den of Lions and served in many high chairs in this and other fraternal lodges.  He was known throughout the state for his activity in fraternal work and his many organization connections will be missed.  
Mrs. Herskovitz was with her husband in Pittsburgh when the end came. Funeral arrangements will be announced tomorrow.

Venerable Citizen of the McCormick
Addition Passes Away Tuesday Noon.

WAS PAST 85 YEARS OF AGE

Was Born in New York State in 1820 and His Wife,
Who Still Survives, Was Born in 1813

   Henry Hibbard, one of the venerable citizens of near Uniontown, died at 11:45 o’clock Tuesday morning, April 10, 1906, at his home in the McCormick addition, after an extended illness. Mr. Hibbard suffered a stroke of paralysis in February, 1901, and since that time he had not been able to do any work. For a number of months past he had been confined to his bed and had been very low for some time.

   Mr. Hibbard was past 85 years of age, having been born December 31, 1820, in Columbia county, N. Y., within a mile of the Massachusetts state line. When he was about four years of age his parents moved to Troy, N. Y., where the son remained until he was 21 years old. He then lived in Hamilton county, N. Y., about two years and afterwards in Williamstown, Mass., about 10 or 12 years. In 1818, while living in Massachusetts, Mr. Hibbard married Miss Sarah Pratt and she died about 10 years afterward, leaving a son, Charles Hibbard, who served in the Civil war and afterwards in the regular army and died in 1875.

   After the death of his first wife, Henry Hibbard went to Virginia and on January 10, 1852, occurred his marriage to Mrs. Robert Ritt, who was his faithful companion for over 54 years, or until his death. She is now past 92 years of age and is in good health. When the Civil war broke out, Mr. and Mrs. Hibbard came north and located at Rochester, Pa., and after living there three years

Phebe HIBBEN died in 1841.

Died, in Hillsboro, Ohio, April 5, 1841, Mrs. Phebe HIBBEN, consort of John HIBBEN, in the 54th year of her age. Sister HIBBEN, was born in Uniontown, Pa., July 30, 1787—embraced religion and joined the Methodist E. Church in her 17th year. She was blessed with a large family of interesting children, most of whom are in the Church. The neediest son (William) is a member of the Indiana conference. He only arrived in time to see his mother die and receive her parting blessing. Sister H. was long a subject of much bodily affliction, but bore it with a marked patience until her final release was signed by the great Head of the Church. I frequently visited her during her last illness, and always found her confiding in her Savior, and bearing her sufferings without a murmur or complaint. Towards the close of her afflictions she sometimes expressed fears that she was not sufficiently resigned to the will of the Lord, being too anxious to leave a world of suffering and go to a world of rest.

A short time before her decease she called all the junior members of her family to her bedside and gave them a mother's last advice and blessing, then charged them to meet her in heaven. Her last words to her son William were, "I want to leave this vale of suffering and go home to heaven." O! that the children may remember the mother's dying charge to meet her in heaven.

Hibbs- On the 9th of Sept, 1864 at City Point U.S. Hospital, Serg't B.F. Hibbs, of Co. H, 1st Pa, Cavalry, in the 28th year of his age.
He was the son of Samuel O and Elisabeth Hibbs of Redstone tp., Fayette co Pa. He volunteered at an early period in the history of the present war; had served his three years, when, while preparing to be mustered out of service, he accidentally received a wound which resulted in his premature death. He was a good soldier, affectionate and obedient as a son while at home, so he was faithful and true in every other relationship in life. He professed religion some years since, and united with the Salem Congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, of which he remained a worthy and consistent member up to the time of his death. He was dutiful in life and hopeful in death. During his last sufferings he was patient and resigned; and gave great satisfaction to his chaplain and others who conversed with him of a preparedness to depart and be with Christ, which is so much more to be desired, than any enjoyment or portion, that earth or time can afford. His early death, away from home falls heavily upon his fond parents, brothers and sisters, and other friends, but let them fly to the bosom of the blessed Saviour, who has bourne our sorrows and carried all our grief and may God who has promised to succor his afflicted people, bless them.
