Hughie HUGHES ( -1916)

UNIONTOWN’S SPEEDWAY IS GIVEN SECOND BAPTISM OF BLOOD
FIVE LIVES ARE SACRIFICED
TO THE SPEED MANIA IN FIRST
WEEK OF THE NEW RACING BOWL

Two Killed and Many Hurt
During the Inaugural
Meeting.
FOLLOWS AN EARLIER TRADEDY
Public Sentiment Is Aroused Against
Reckless Sacrifice of Human Life in
Name of Sport: Promoters Say
Tragedies Will Not Hinder Program.

   At least five lives were sacrificed in the speed mania at Uniontown’s new Speedway during the first week of its operation, and the toll may grow. Following the tragedy earlier in the week in which two Pittsburg youths were killed trying out their car, the inaugural meeting on Saturday was marred by an accident which cost the lives of Hughie Hughes, one of the best known drivers in the country, Gaston Weigle, a mechanician, and probably fatally hurt, Frank Galvin, another driver, besides injuring a number of spectators. Galvin died at noon today.

   The succession of fatalities has aroused sentiment against holding such exhibitions in the name of sport. That this sentiment is not confined to the spectators is indicated by the fact that J. C. Hoskins, millionaire patron of the racing game, has definitely announced that he will sell his machine and retire. He entered the game a few years ago “for the sport of it,” but the kind of sport he saw at Uniontown, “sport” which cost the life of his driver, has disgusted him. It is predicted that a serious effort will be made to have the Pennsylvania Legislature enact a measure prohibiting such exhibitions within the state, and that the long arm of the law may check reckless waste of life for financial gain, even though the promoters of such enterprise plan its continuance. There was some speculation in Uniontown today as to the possibility of damage suits against the speedway association. The opinion prevails that none will be brought. Virtually all of the spectators who were hurt had entered on passes and were obliged to sign a release for damages. Whether such releases would hold is a delicate question of law. As the result of a comparatively recent race tragedy in California suits have been brought against the county in which the event was held, it having been staged on a public highway.

   Spectators from Connellsville who saw the tragedy were agreed that little excitement followed it. So interested were the majority of the people in the stands and infield that few realized just what had happened. There was something of a flurry in the immediate vicinity of the scene, but there was no undue expression of either excitement or emotion.

TWO KILLED, MANY
HURT, IN ACCIDENT

   Hughie Hughes, internationally famous racing driver, and Gaston Weigle, a mechanician, were killed. Frank Galvin, another driver, was fatally injured, and 14 persons were hurt at the new Uniontown speedway Saturday afternoon about 3:30 o’clock when Galvin’s Premier car, traveling about 100 miles an hour, swerved from the course and crashed into the press stand, 20 feet away. Hughes had just eliminated himself from the race, after leading most of the way, by running his car into the guardrail to avoid striking one of the other racers which had boxed him. He was standing at the side of the track telling J. C. Hoskins, owner of the car he had driven, how it happened when Galvin’s machine came along and in the twinkling of an eye overturned and crashed into the group of men nest to the press box.

THE DEAD

   HUGHIE HUGHES, aged 34; London, England.
   GASTON WEIGLE, aged 28, of Indianapolis; mechanician for Frank Galvin; body crushed when auto turned over on it.
   FRANK GALVIN, of Indianapolis; fractured skull, concussion of the brain, died in Uniontown hospital.,

THE INJURED

   CONSTABLE MONT. McCORMICK, Uniontown; right leg injured; not serious; taken home.
   RICHARD SPAVEN, 1122 North Euclid avenue, Pittsburg; compound fracture of the right leg.
   ELMER PUTNAM, aged 31, Pittsburg street, Uniontown; fractured nose.
   L. H. CONGER, Akren, O.; fractured thigh.
   J. J. DOUGHERTY, 3510 Fifth avenue, Pittsburg; right arm broken.
   DANIEL W. ROSS, 36 South Rodgers avenue, Bellevue; nose fractured; hands cut.
   RICHARD ADAMS, 314 Fifth avenue, New York; bruises about the arms, head and body and cuts about the head.
   F. W. KELLY, Greensburg; head and shoulders bruised.
   G. H. RUE, Point Marion; hand bruised.
   JAMES W. WALL, Pittsburg; right hand hurt.
   EDWARD F. KORDELL, New York City; bruised about the body.
   DONALD REAMER, Uniontown, leg injured.
   W. L. MEYERS, Philadelphia, lacerations of body.

   Galvin was hurled clear of the machine. His mechanician, Gaston Weigle, was crushed beneath it as it overturned. The press box was demolished and a dozen newspaper men had miraculous escapes. Several of them were hurt, but none seriously.

   Hughes had led in the race until the 62nd lap, when he was forced to stop at the pits for a new swheel. When he returned to the track, he attempted to pass the Pugh Special at the west turn. The Pugh skidded just as he came up with it and swerved directly in the path of Hughes’ car. To avoid a collision Hughes drove into the guard rail. He and his mechanician escaped unhurt, but they had eliminated themselves from the race. Hughes crossed the field to the starting point and was telling Mr. Hoskins and a group of other men what had happened when the Premier car overturned. His last act was a twitch of his wrist to warn Mr. Haskins of the oncoming racer. M. Worth Colwell, publicity director; Richard Adams, millionaire racing driver; Mont McCormick, Uniontown constable, and several others were in the group, but they managed to evade the machine.

   Hughes and Weigle were killed instantly, their bodies being badly crushed. Frank Galvin was taken to the Uniontown hospital in a critical condition. He died at noon. Hughes’ body was shipped to Los Angeles, where his wife resides. Weigle and Galvin resided at Indianapolis.

   Article continues concerning racing results.

HUGHES’ BODY IS
SHIPPED WEST

Casket is Transferred to Through
Train at the Station Here; Will
Send Galvin’s Corpse East.

   The body of Hughie Hughes, the racing driver killed at the Uniontown speedway on Saturday, was shipped from Uniontown to his former home in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. It was transferred from the Fairmont branch train to No. 15 at Connellsville. On the rough box were a wreath of flowers and a brown traveling bag, evidently Hughes’ own. A few of the racer’s friends went to the station to gaze upon the box that contained all that was mortal of him.

   At Uniontown the deceased driver’s fellow drivers and mechanicians bore the casket from the morgue to the railroad station. The pallbearers were Art Klien, Barny Newgard, Louis Fountaine, Russell Burns and Milt McBride. Acting as an escort were others interested in the Speedway races.

   The body of Frank Galvin, who died about noon yesterday from injuries he suffered when his machine overturned on Saturday, will be taken to the home of relatives at New Milford, Conn. His parents are expected to arrive in Uniontown today to claim the body. The remains of Gaston Weigle, Galvin’s mechanician, will be taken to his home in Indianapolis. An inquest into the deaths of Hughes, Galvin and Weigle will be conducted by Coroner S. H. Baum on Friday afternoon at 3 o’clock.

Roseanna D. Humphreys (nee Dedrick)
The Humphreys Family. Sketch of the Late Roseanna D. Humphreys of Fairchance. (by Fred C. Irvin)
The funeral of Mrs. Roseanna Dedrick Humphreys, who died Monday at Fair chance, was held Wednesday at the home of her son, Humphrey Humphreys, a t 2 p.m. and was one of the most largely attended funerals ever held in t hat community. Every livery conveyance and many private ones in the to wn were engaged and the funeral train was quite lengthy. The family is a l argely connected one and there were people from many points in attendan ce. Among these were Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Elmer and John Treasure of Be llevernon; Roy Treasure, Fayette City and John Hunt and family of Union town. Rev. Charles O. Bemies of McClellantown, and Rev. Harry W. Kilgo re of Fairchance, conducted the services, and interment was made in the T ent church cemetery. Music was furnished by a choir consisting of Mrs. W .S. Nixon, Mrs. George B. Irvin, Clark Kissinger, Lloyd Shanaberger and M rs. A.P. Shutterly, organist. Six grandsons of the deceased were pall- bearers. They are Bruce, Russell, Ewing and Fred Humphreys, Guy Britt o f Georges township and Bailey Sterling of Uniontown.
Mrs. Humphreys expired Sept. 16, 1907, at 6:30 a.m., after and illness d ating back to February, and due mostly to her advanced age. She seemed t o know that she never would
be well again, and from time to time made certain requests concerning h er funeral, which were remembered and followed out when the time came. S he had asked that Rev. Bemies conduct her funeral, and when she later b ecame acquainted with the present pastor at Fairchance, Rev. Kilgore, s he desired that he, too, assist in the funeral service. There are many o ther things characteristic of this remarkable woman, which have made he r so highly respected by those who knew her. She was born Sept. 18, 18 21, in Fayette county, and spent all her 86 years in this county. Her p arents were Peter and Susannah Dedrick, and she was the last living mem ber of that generation of a family noted for its longevity. Her grandf ather lived to be 106 years old, and many of her near relatives attaine d the age of 90 years. At the age of 14 she united with the Tent Presb yterian church and was always a consistent and regular communicant of t hat church, bring up her family in that denomination. The Fairchance Pr esbyterian church was a branch of the Tent church, and F.H. Oliphant er ected the old building with stood in Fairchance for about 60 years. Mr s. Humphreys was one those who attended and communed at the first servi ce held there prior to its being torn down in 1903. When the new $12,0 00 edifice was finished the following year Mrs. Humphreys attended the f irst communion, and contributed much to the interest of the services by g iving information about the old structure and its contemporaneous histo ry. Her recollections of the first services were so very vivid, among o ther things being the fact that for some time the congregation sat on b oard benches, erected on blocks on which the people sat and listened to t he old Presbyterian sermons, preached by such men as Dr. Fairchild, and o thers.

=======================================================

Humphrey's History
About 75 years ago there emigrated to this country one Edward Humphreys a nd family from North Wales. His namesake and grandson, Edward D. Humph reys of Fairchance, has the papers signifying the intention of Edward H umphreys to become a citizen of the United States, also the papers of n aturalization of Edward’s son, Humphrey Humphreys, the deceased husband o f Roseanna Humphreys, the subject of this sketch. The latter paper is a r ecord of the proceedings in the Fayette county courts and bears the sig nature of Daniel Kane, the then prothonotary. This paper is quaintly w orded and very finely and legibly written. It bears the date of Sept. 1 , 1845, and a later date showing the granting of citizenship rights of O ct. 7, 1845. It is No. 649. Among other things of interest is the ass ertion that during his residence her he had behaved as man of good mora l character and that he was well disposed towards the good order and ha ppiness of the United States; that he was a subject of Queen Victoria, a nd hereby renounced all allegiance to her and all other foreign potenta tes. On the father’s declaration of intention, which was made out in B loomfield, Perry County, he declares that he set sail from Liverpool, E ngland, July 15, 1829, and landed in Alexander on Sept. 21, having take n two months and six days for the voyage which now requires but six or e ight days. This paper dated Aug. 15, 1836. The paper of Humphrey Hump hreys is witnessed by Joseph Barnum and Isaac Harvey, and that he enjoy ed the full use of his citizenship privileges is shown by the fact that a t the time of his death in June, 1883, he was filling his third term as J ustice of the Peace of Georges township. His death occurred in the old S terling house on the Fairchance and Smithfield road. He was also a Cou nty Commissioner in 1866.
His marriage with Roseanna Dedrick occurred about 1841, and unto them w as born 12 children, seven of whom survive: They being Edward D., Fair chance; Mrs. Mary Sterling, Uniontown; John C., Masontown; Henry R.; Hu mphrey; and Steven A., Fairchance; and Mrs. Maggie Britt, Georges towns hip.

Mordecai L. HUNT ( -1855)

Died,

   January, 26th ult, of Pulmonary consumption, MORDECAI L HUNT, in the 17th yer of his age. Amiable in all the relations of life, he won the esteem of all who knew him. Afflicted through life, and deprived of many of its enjoyments, by a defect in his visual organs, it was with difficulty that he could attend to business—but with an untiring energy, he surmounted this obstacle, and filled his place in the business world—in which, his every act was marked with honesty and punctuality.

   This affliction had no doubt, an effect upon his moral character—and as he did not take part in the gay scenes which were passing around him, so he also escaped many of the vices to which those more favored, are subject. In a work, Mordecai was moral.

   But, it was not until a few months previous to his death, that he professed a change of heart, and (though he never united himself with any branch of the Christian church.) gave satisfactory evidence that he was prepared to die a triumphant death, and enjoy the glories of Heaven.

   He suffered much in his last illness, but bore it all with Christian fortitude, calmly submitting to his fate. On the evening of his death, having now called his mother, sister, and brothers to his bed-side, he bade them an affectionate farewell—and to be composed with the consoling thought, that he would soon be free—free from the afflictions of earth—free from its temptations. After which, as the clock struck 12, at the solemn noon of night, calmly and without a struggle, he breathed out his life, into the hands of that God who gave it, and his freed spirit winged its flight from the darkness which enveloped the earth to enjoy the glorious light of Heaven—to bask forever in the sunshine of God’s countenance.

   Let his relations and friends be consoled, with this cheering reflection, and strive to be prepared to meet him there.

ALCYNTHUS.

Verda M. Malone HUNT (1915-2010)

   Verda M. (Malone) Hunt, 95, of Uniontown, Pennsylvania went to be with her Lord on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 from LaFayette Manor. She was born Thursday, July 29, 1915 at Morgantown, West Virginia the daughter of Fred C. Malone and Carrie Edith (Groves) Malone. Verda graduated from Masontown High School with the Class of 1933. On February 22, 1942 she married J. Raymond Hunt of Uniontown whom she loved and cherished for 61 years, until his death on Friday, November 7, 2003.

   Surviving her are one son, Roger A. Hunt and wife Karen of Hopwood, Pennsylvania; and three daughters: Susan Audrain of Audubon, Pennsylvania, Amy Dixon and husband David of Franklin, Tennessee and Marsha Hibbs husband Philip (deceased) of Spring Hill, Tennessee. She was also blessed with eleven grandchildren: Roger A. Hunt Jr. and Dawn, Jay Raymond Hunt and Jodi, Sherri Crane and Andrew, Dr. Janet and Dr. Paul McGovern, Robin Cloutier (deceased), Dr. Brad Dixon and Holly, Mindy Johnson and Jeff, Darin Dixon, Matthew Hibbs and Andrea, Sarah Overfelt and Steve, Timothy Hibbs and Sasha; and twenty-two great grandchildren. Verda was predeceased by her parents, brother Richard of Smithfield, Pennsylvania and a sister Doris Winters of Cleveland, Ohio in addition to her husband J. Raymond Hunt son-in-law Philip Hibbs, and granddaughter Robin Cloutier.

   She was employed by Fayette County Children and Youth Services for 20 years until her retirement. Verda took great pride in belonging to The National Society of The Daughters of The American Revolution, Great Meadows Chapter. She worked tirelessly to trace her ancestry back to the American Revolution and to Jacob Prickett, a Captain in Gaddis' Command, Monongalia Militia. She was a member of the Church of the Brethren of Masontown until her marriage in 1942 to J. Raymond Hunt of Uniontown, Pennsylvania at which time she joined the Great Bethel Baptist Church of Uniontown. There she was an active member of The Ruth Class, the American Baptist Women of Pennsylvania and Delaware, and served several terms on the church Diaconate Board and Board of Christian Education. When the family thinks of Verda we remember her loves: the cookouts in her back yard; her teaching the kids to swim in her pool; her music with her piano and organ and how she encouraged and taught all of her kids and grandkids to love music. She never discouraged any of the kids regardless of age to sit with her on the bench and try to play, and in so doing, developed a love of music. This is probably her greatest legacy that lives on today. She also loved flowers and plants and belonging to the Garden Club.

   Verda will be honored at a Memorial Service at 11 a.m. on Saturday, December 18, 2010 at GREAT BETHEL BAPTIST CHURCH, 47 West Fayette Street, Uniontown, PA 15401 with Dr. Neil W.

  HURLEY— At her home, the Trans-Allegheny House, on Tuesday morning at 7 o’clock, December 24th, 1901, Mrs. Honora, wife of Michael Hurley. Mrs. Hurley had been in ill health for several months. She had not left her bed since her prostration last summer. Paralysis was the cause of her death. Last week her relatives and friends knew the end was not far off and it came peacefully Tuesday morning. Mrs. Hurley was born in Ireland 57 years ago. In 1862 she was married to Michael Hurley and two years later the young couple immigrated to this country. They first located at Franklin, Pa., but did not remain there long, moving to Ursina, Somerset county. In the early 70’s they came to Connellsville and have lived her since. Deceased was the mother of ten children only four of whom survive. In the death of her children deceased was sorely afflicted. On the six who preceded her to the grave, nearly all of them grew to man’s or woman’s estate when the hand of death called them from a home that was all a mother’s and father’s kindliness and gentleness could make it. The surviving children are Miss Nan, Mrs. J. M. Boyd, Mrs. H. J. Coll and Miss Pearl. Those dead are Mary, John, Michael, Katherine, Bessie and Sadie. The last two were twins and died within a short time of each other. Mrs. Hurley was a woman whose charity did not seek ostentatious display, but which was nevertheless wide in its scope. She was a devout woman, a member of the Immaculate Conception Church. The funeral services will be held this morning at 10 o’clock, Solemn High Mass of Requiem will be celebrated. Interment in St. Joseph’s Cemetery.

Andrew HUSTEAD ( -1862)

   On Thursday, Oct. 30th at the residence of his father near Brownsville, Fayette Co., Pa., Mr. ANDREW HUSTEAD, in the 17th year of his age. Mr. H's disease was Diphtheria. We were providentially prevented from attending him during his last illness; but we are informed that he bore all with remarkable degree of fortitude and that he was patiently resigned to whatever might be the will of his heavenly Father. His consciousness continued to the last, and often was he seen to be engaged in earnest prayer.—Doubtless he who has never said to any humble suppliant, "seek ye me in vain," heard and answered his cries for mercy, so that whilst his surviving parents and friends mourn over his untimely grave, they yet mourn, not as those who are without hope. May a merciful God sanctify their affliction by binding up their wounded hearts and imparting to them the rich communications of his sustaining Grace.  Com.

Axel HUSTEAD ( -1864)

DEATHS

  HUSTEAD— On the 1st day of Dec. 1864, Axel, only son of Lieut. James M. and Hannah Hustead, in his eighth year. The disease of which he died was of painful and lingering character, but he endured his suffering with astonishing fortitude for one so young, never uttering a word of complaint. He enjoyed his intellectual powers till the latest moment of life, assuring his frinds that he had no fears of death, telling them that although he loved his father and his mother very much, yet there was something he loved much more, the plainest inference from which is, that the warm affections of that little heart were placed on the blessed Redeemer, who said, “suffer little children to cometh unto me.” What a consolation to the beraved parents and especially to the sorrowing father, who at the time of the death of his son, was far from home in the services of his country in the bloody valley of Virginia.

James Miller Hustead

 James Miller Hustead, youngest son of John (2) Hustead, was born near Smithfield, Georges township, Fayette county, Pennsylvania, September 18, 1827. He was educated in the township schools, principally under the instruction of Professor John G. Hertig.

 Upon the death of his father in 1846, James M. being then nineteen years of age, rented the home farm from his mother and this he successfully conducted until 1857, when he became manager of an iron and hardware store at Morgantown, West Virginia, owned by John Oliphant & Company, remaining there two years. He proved a capable and efficient business man and won and retained the entire confidence of his firm. Oliphant & Company were the owners of an iron manufacturing plant in Fayette county, Pennsylvania, called Oliphant Furnace, and there Mr. Hustead was sent as store keeper, later becoming bookkeeper and manager.

 He remained until the civil war broke out, when he answered the call for volunteers, enlisting September 2, 1862, in Captain Duncan's company, of which he was elected second lieutenant. This company was mustered in as Company E, Fourteenth Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry, 14th Regiment Colonel Schoonmaker, and attached to General Averill's corps, Army of the Potomac. He served with distinction until March 29, 1865, when he was honorably discharged and mustered out. He saw hard service riding and fighting with General Sheridan in the Valley campaign and others.

 He then returned to his Fayette county farm, where he remained until 1867. He then again entered business life, forming a partnership with J. C. Beeson, his brother-in-law, and established at Fairmont, West Virginia, a general hardware, iron and castings business, also dealing in live stock and wool. This business continued successfully for six years when Mr. Hustead sold out and returned to Fayette county. In 1873 he became manager of a general store at Dunbar Furnace, purchasing the business in 1876, and in 1890 he admitted Isaac W. Semans as a partner. Two years prior to this, in 1888, the firm of Hustead, Semans & Company had been formed and a general and dry goods business established on East Main street, Uniontown. Mr. Hustead is the owner of farm and coal lands in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, and is an associate in coal and coke production in Fayette county and West Virginia, being a director of several companies. He has also extensive banking interests, being associated as a director with the First National Bank of Uniontown, the "honor" bank of the United States, and interested in the Union National Bank of Clarksburg, West Virginia, Federal National Bank of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the First National Bank of Fairmont, West Virginia. In religious faith he is an Episcopalian, serving as vestryman, and in politics is a Democrat, but has never accepted public office. This brief resume of Mr. Hustead's many spheres of activity proves the broadness of his mental vision, and whether considered as employee, employer, merchant, soldier, churchman or official business associate, he has always been found true to himself and true to his fellows.

 Mr. Hustead married, at Uniontown, Pennsylvania, November 4, 1874, Anna Belle, born in Greene county, Pennsylvania, December 2, 1853, daughter of Henry and Eleanor Jane (McClelland) Willard, the former of whom is deceased. Children: 1. Albert Miller, born May 20, 1876; educated at Virginia Military Institute, and Lafayette College, Easton, Pennsylvania; married Odile de Saulles. 2. James Edgar, born November 6, 1880; educated at Lawrenceville school, class of 1899, and Princeton University, graduating in class of 1903; married, November 14, 1907, Helen Watt Henderson; child, Jean Hope, born February 26, 1910. 3. Walter Bugh, born June 18, 1884; educated at Cheltenham Military School and Lawrenceville school. New Jersey; is superintendent of Hope Coke Works.

bullet Sarah HUSTED died in 1862. Her obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(49)

DIED
Of Consumption, June 18th, at her mother's residence , in Nicholson Tp., Miss SARAH HUSTED, in her 26th year.
The deceased made an early profession of religion-that which sustained her in the dying hour. Through a wearying, lingering illness of several months, which ended in her demise, no words of repining nor impatience came from her lips; but on the contrary on all occasions, she manifested that perfect resignation to the will of God which leaves to her mourning friends the happy assurance that her hope was not in vain in the Lord.
Another link, mourning friends to the chain Heavenward! Another plank to the spanning of Jordan's turbid stream. Com.

The Keystone Courier, Connellsville, Pa.
Friday, March 26, 1880
Page 5, column 7
HUTTON.-In Burnside township, Clearfield County, on Friday evening, March 19th, 1880, Mrs. Elizabeth Hutton, wife of Joseph Hutton, aged 43 years.
The subject of this notice, previous to her marriage to Mr. Hutton, in 1873, was a resident of Connellsville. She was a lady of culture, refinement and education, a devoted wife, an affectionate mother, and a faithful christian. Possessing all the attributes of the accomplished and amiable, her life was fraught with golden deeds. She was a friend to the friendless, a help to the helpless, and a strong supporter of all that is good, noble and true. Enjoying as she did a large circle of friends. Their loss is irrepairable, and her untimely demise is another demonstration of the truth, that "In the midst of life we are in death."
Thus by the mysterious hand of Providence another faithful one has been called from earth "to reign with Him who dwelleth beyond the stars, whose brightness shineth above the brightness of the sun." She leaves a promising little son, who has just learned to lisp the name of mother, and live in the light of a mother's influence, and a husband whose sad affliction enlists the sympathies of all.
The funeral, which took place on the Sabbath following, was the largest seen in that community for many years.
