KILLED COUPLING CARS
Lewis Jackson a B&O Brakeman, the Victim
Got His Foot Fast in Guard Rail of Switch
at Oliver #2 and was ground to death
No chance to Get away - son of Mrs. Jackson, Lawn Ave.
Lewis Jackson, a brakeman on the B&O coke shifter, was instantly killed between 9 and 10 A.M. today by being run over by a car at the switch into Oliver coke works No.2. He was walking on the track in front of a moving train with the object of making a coupling. The car was traveling slowly and as is usual for a brakeman to do he walked slowly in front of it. When he reached a switch frog(?) he stepped between the guard rail and the main rail on the opposite side of the switch. His weight pushed the heel of his shoe, tightly between the two rails and it was held fast. Before he could do anything to save himself the car was on him, knocking him down and passing over his body lenghtwise, cutting and mangling him in horrible shape and killing him instantly. The car passed over him before the trainmen were able to do anything. His remains were brought to J. Harry Johnston's undertaking rooms, where they were prepared for burial.
Mr. Jackson was a son of Mrs. Jackson of Lawn Ave., where he made his home together with a sister. He was her only support and his untimely death is a sudden blow to her. He was about 31 years old and had been in the employ of the B&O for about 10 years. He was a member and recording secretary of the Brotherhood of Trainmen, a member of Alpheus E. Willson lodge, K of P, and Mechannics council No. 353, O.U.A.M. of Uniontown and the B&O relief department. He was also in the regular army, serving three years when young. As an employee he was faithful in his trust and had hosts of friends among his fellow workers.
Funeral services will be conducted at his late home on Lawn Ave. at 2:30P.M., Sunday, by Rev. C.H. Plattenburg of the Central Christain Church, interment at Hopwood. The members of the two lodges, Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, and Mechanics Council No.353O U.A.M. will meet at their respective lodge rooms at 1:30 Sunday and march in a body to the house to take part in the funeral services.

bullet Mary A. JAQUETTE died in 1862. Her obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(4)

In this place, on Friday morning, June 20th ' 62, of disease of the heart, MARY A. JAQUETTE, in the 38th year of her age.
It needs not that we portray her excellence of heart and life, nor minutely record her virtues. They live in the hearts of all who knew her. — For many years she was a member of the M. E. Church, and in her life was shown the beauty, in her death the power of religion. During years of suffering, she never manifested an impatient word or look, nor even a desire to have it otherwise, only that she desired most of all to depart and be with Christ. She waited for the angel of death to release her from her sufferings in the body, and welcome his coming , and passed from the earth calmly and peacefully . The light of the home circle is darkened , but she is "forever with the Lord."

DEATHS

  Jeffries— On the 28th of Sept. '64, at his residence in German tp., Fayette county, Pa., Mr. Wm. Jeffries, Sr., in the 63rd year of his age. Bro. Jeffries had been a ruling Elder in the Salem congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church for a number of years. He had enjoyed almost uninterrupted health until within a few days of his death, when he was violently attacked with Typhoid Dysentery, and went down very fast; thus showing us the great uncertainty of human life, and that truly, whilst in the midst of life we are, in reality, in the midst of death. He was a man of humble piety, much devoted to the cause of Christ and the interests of the church of his choice. Hence the community, the Church and especially his family, have sustained in his death a heavy loss. He has left a very large family, to the charge and oversight of the companion of his youth--May they heed well his last and dying counsel and advice and may his deeply bereaved wife and relatives and consolation in his triumphant death, as well as from the never failing promise and hope of the gospel, and be encouraged to wait, in the faithful discharge of their Christian duties, until the master shall call them from the labors of this probationary state, to the enjoyment of the rewards of a life of faith and prayer.

Benjamin JENNINGS died in 1843.

JENNINGS

My esteemed and venerable kinsman, Benjamin JENNINGS, closed life's journey, in great peace, near Wilmington, Clinton county, Ohio, on the 1st inst. He was born in Fayette county, Pa., more than seventy years ago. His father, David JENNINGS, was one of the first settlers in the Redstone region, and one of the first fruits of Methodism in that country, under the ministry of BREEZE and COOPER. Benjamin was brought to the knowledge of salvation when quite young, and his course from your tho old age was such as becometh the Gospel. I have been acquainted with him as a member of the Church for more than half a century, and in all that length of time, I have known but few, very few persons, of whom I could more cheerfully and confidently say, "He was blameless and harmless—a child of God without rebuke." During his illness he was patient, tranquil, and resigned. The Clinton Republican, in noticing his death, says, that being asked what his prospects were in the world to come, his reply was, "God is love! The faith once delivered to the saints is sufficient, and enables me to rejoice in hope of meeting, in great mercy, my heavenly Father near his glorious throne."

COMMUNICATED

Died On the 17th inst. After a painful and distressing illness, which he bore with true christian patience and submission, The Revd Jacob Jennings, late Pastor of Dunlaps creek congregation, in the 69th year of his age.
After the necessary preparation, he commenced the practice of Physic, at an early period of his life, and not long afterwards made an open profession of the religion of Jesus Christ, whose doctrine it was his study. Even afterwards to adorn.
After having successfully practiced medicine for more than 20 years, believing that he was called to preach the gospel, he was duly licensed & ordained for that purpose, by the Presbyterian Church in the state of New Jersey, where he then resided which was the place of his nativity. More than 20 years ago he removed to this county where he resided until his death; after a life of unblemished integrity, exemplary piety, and unwearied assiduity in watching for the souls of those committed to his care, & in endeavoring to relieve the distresses of all within his reach, he died beloved and respected by the people of that congregation of which he had long been the Pastor, and by all to whom he was known: leaving a wife & children and friends to mourn their heavy loss. But it is their consolation that they have not to sorrow as those who have no hope. It was in his latter moments supported by that religion which, had been his comfort through life, and was enabled to bear a dying testimony in favor of its truth and the faithfulness of it author. Without a struggle or a groan, with a comfortable hope of redemption through the blood of the son of God, and while engaged in the exercise of humble & earnest prayer he fell asleep in Jesus.

   Sara Elizabeth Edwards Johns, age 86, of Brownsville, Pa., passed away on Tuesday, December 28, 2010 at Memorial Hospital in Pembroke Pines, Fla., surrounded by family and friends.

Sara was a lifelong resident of Brownsville and graduated from Brownsville High School in 1942. She then attended Howard University in Washington, D.C., where she worked at the Pentagon while attending school. She returned to Brownsville after a year and married her high school sweetheart, the late Philip R. "Woggie" Johns, Sr. She was a long-time and very active member of Mount Zion A. M. E.

She coordinated many church plays and programs as well as welcomed new members to the church. She was never too busy to do something for her church as she supported virtually all of its endeavors. One of the more memorable events that Sara performed was her orchestration of the annual Sunday School Picnics, which were held at such places as Monessen Park, Idlewild Park, and Rainbow Gardens.

She whom we loved has passed away;
 Hath flown to realms above.
The Friend she loved so much.

She was too good, too king, too pure,
 To long remain on earth;
And now, alas! One vacant chair
 Around our family hearth.

But just a few short weeks ago,
 Around her bed we stood;
She, by her kind, soothing way,
 Rays of light ever shed.

Though her we sadly miss on earth,
 We know that all is well;
She’ll meet those who’ve before her gone,
 Who now in glory dwell.

Grieve not, then, for departed ones,
 Who heavenly anthems swell;
Oh, how her face with glory beamed,
 As she bid all farewell.

R. JOHNSON ( -1867)

  TERRIFIC EXPLOSION ON THE BALTIMORE AND OHIO RAILROAD— A terrible locomotive explosion occurred near Littleton, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, about 35 miles from Wheeling, on Thursday afternoon, by which three men, Otto Burrell, George Artis and R. Johnson, were almost instantly killed. The locomotive or engine was attached to the western bound lightning express freight train, and was ascending the grade near Littleton when the explosion occurred. The three men were on the engine, Burrell being the supervisor of trains, Artis engineer, and Johnson fireman, and were killed instantly. The locomotive was thrown completely over. The body of Artis was blown forward and to one side about a hundred yards. He was still living when approached, but expired in a few minutes. Mr. Burrell was blown backward, alighting not far from the rear of the train. The conductor saw him fall, and says he came down directly on his head. He was dead when picked up. Mr. Johnson was blown directly over the bank, some twenty-five or thirty feet, and was instantly killed.

UNION.....JANUARY 6.
MELANCHOLY OCCURRENCE!

   On Monday last, Mr. Hugh Cunningham, and Thomas Johnston, both of this county, and Mr. Strong, of Kentucky, were unfortunately drowned in the Youghiogeni river, near Connellsville. It appears that Mr. Cunningham was about to descend the river to Kentucky, with a cargo of Iron, and had received into his boat near three tons of iron at Col. Meason's Forge, and set out from thence accompanied by the above persons and two negro men, with an intention of landing his boat below the bridge, to receive the residue of his loading;-- that owing to some mismanagement of the boat, she was brought sideways against one of the fenders of the bridge, which caused the iron to roll to one side, and sprung a plank:--the water immediately poured into the boat: Upon seeing this, one of the negroes on board became alarmed and clung to one of the piers of the bridge, by which he saved himself. Mr. Cunningham, and the others on board, appeared to exert themselves to effect a landing, but the boat filling so fast with water, their exertions were unavailing;--she sunk about a quarter of mile below the bridge, near the middle of the river. The only person saved was the other negro man who swam ashore. The bodies of the deceased have not yet been found.

JONES-On the 26th ult., at the residence of her husband, Capt. James H. Jones of St. Louis, Mrs. Annie E. Jones, after an illness of two weeks of Inflammation of the Brain.
Mrs. Jones was born in Uniontown, and lived there until her marriage with Capt. Jones, of Va.
She was the daughter of Matthew Irwin, Esq., of that place.
May of your readers will well remember the sprightly amiable girl in her youth, who became an excellent wife, a devoted mother and whose death, all who knew her do now sincerely mourn.
Mrs. Jones died the tranquil and peaceful death of the Christian, in the triumphs of that faith which is alone reliable in the hour of death.
She leaves a husband deeply afflicted, and four children to endure the bereavement, which this sore dispensation of God has brought upon them.
She is in her grave-silent sorrow becomes her friends-her life was her highest panegyric.      Com.

Passing motorists late Saturday night found the badly mangled body of James Jones, 23, who changed his place of residence quite frequently, lying along the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad tracks at Hogsett's Cut, just north of the city.
Jones had been dividing his time between his father's home at Vanderbilt and his mother's residence at Beeson Works.  He also spent considerable time in Uniontown and frequently visited friends on the Uniontown police force.
Shortly after 8 o'clock Saturday night Jones left the police station and was not seen alive again.  It is believed that a passing freight train caught him and badly mangled the body.
The body was removed to the County Home for burial.  His father is Robert Jones and his mother Hazel Jones.

DEATHS

JONES— In Uniontown, on the 4th inst., JAMES ALVA, son of John and Eliza Jones, aged 4 months and 15 days.

At early dawn of twilight’s ray,
When the birds awoke to sing their lay,
An angel to our cot did fly,
And called our lovely boy away.
In vain friends round his little bed,
Nursed tenderly his form of clay;
In Vain were tears of sorrow shed –
The angel called our boy away.
At evening’s close, when I am done,
With daily toil and anxious care,
And bend my weary footsteps home,
I meet no little Jimmy there.
We miss him in his crib,
We miss him in our arms,
We miss him early – miss him late –
Hush! Hush! My soul, cease to complain,
And wipe those gushing tears away;
Our darling boy will rise again,
And hail us in eternal day.
In Jesus’ arms he sunk to rest,
He entered heaven in Jesus’ name,
In Jesus’ robes his soul is dressed,
Through Jesus’ blood we’ll meet again.

A Tribute of Respect to the
Fallen Hero.

BALL GALLATIN LODGE, No. 517,
I. O. O. F. SMITHFIELD, PENNA.
March 1, 1865

  WHEREAS, It has pleased the Almighty in the conduct of His Providence, to remove by the hand of death, our beloved and true- hearted brother, Jere B. Jones, who, bring fired by patriotism was among the first in our locality to enlist under the banner of our common Country, and rush forward to the field of sanguinary conflict, and if needs be, offer up his life on his country's altar. He attached himself to C. G. 8th Regt. Penna. Res. Corps. The bare allusion to h is corps is associated in our mind, with the seven days of terrible struggle in front of Richmond. Who that has read can doubt that the Penna. Reserves, (be it to their honor said, and let the historians' pen so put it down.) saved our young and noble army. The subject of our sketch fell at the battle of Mechanicsville, pierced with two balls, one of which entered his shoulder, and passing out at the breast, inflicting a wound considered by his comrades mortal, however, he being of a vigorous constitution, survived it, though honorably discharged from the service. As his wounds improved, he felt that his country still needed his services, and impelled by love to it, he once more tendered those services, enlisting in his old Company and Regiment. He fought well through the battles of the Wilderness, and once more up to Richmond. In the battle of Weldon Railroad, he was taken prisoner, was confined awhile at Richmond, from thence sent t o Saulsbury, N. C.--Suffering from diarrhea, without proper nourishment or medical aid, he gradually sunk, and on the 31st of October last, saying to his companions--'write to my mother, and tell her I died a true-hearted soldier,' he closed his eyes in death, Therefore

  Resolved, that we deeply deplore the early death of our brother, who was a true Odd Fellow, as well a a brave soldier, Therefore

  Resolved, That we express our deepest sympathy towards his widowed mother, his sisters and brothers, commending all to the care of Him, whose love is ever manifested toward his creatures, and His power exercised for their benefit, Therefore

Olevia P. JONES ( -1853)

DIED

   In Bridgeport, on Thursday night, March 3d, 1853, of Inflammation of the Brain, OLEVIA P., daughter of Rob’t W. and Anna M. Jones, in the 5th year of her age. Death is always a sorrowful event, but in the present instance peculiarly so. Olevia was a lovely and extraordinary child. She was endowed with great equanimity and sweetness of disposition, - excessively fond of her parents, and never seemed to have great enjoyment than when obeying them. She gave evidence of superior intellectual powers, and had great fondness for intellectual employments. She would frequently create astonishment by the questions she would propose to those older than herself – questions evincing more than ordinary thoughtfulness and judgment. She would remember and repeat any interesting story or Bible incident she had heard, and was passionately fond of anything relating to the death of Christ or the condition of heathen children. She would deposit with her mother what money was given her, as she said, “to by good books and clothing for the little heathen children.” Even during her last illness, when her father gave her some money, she handed it to her mother, requesting her to keep it and give it to this blessed purpose. She said once to her father, during her sickness, that she desired to die to go to God. Her sufferings were extreme and protracted; but she will suffer no more. She is doubtless a bright angel in the presence of God. In this reflection what an alleviation of her parents’ grief! She will not return to them, but they will go to her. “The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away: blessed be the name of the Lord.”    Com.

FATAL SHOOTING
AT COLONIAL 1

   One negro was shot through the heart and a guard at Colonial No. 1, was shot in the hip as the result of a fatal windup of a “crap” game late yesterday afternoon at the mine.

Rachel JONES ( -1906)

BROWNSVILLE MURDER

Colored Man Shoots Wife on Street,
Then Gives Himself Up.

   Alfred Jones, aged 27, colored, on Wednesday evening at Brownsville, caught his wife, aged 25, on the street and while holding her in his grip, fired three bullets into her body, death resulting almost instantly. Jones then hurried down street, handed his revolver to one of the policemen, told the officer that he had killed his wife, and asked to be locked up. He is now confined in jail. Jones and his wife had been married only a year or two, and it is said have had frequent quarrels. They never went to housekeeping, but stayed around among friends. It is also said that Jones was jealous of his wife, and had been accusing her for some time of infidelity.

BROWNSVILLE MURDER CASE

   If the extreme penalty is meted out to Kometz he will get 40 years in the penitentiary 20 years in each case but it is not thought that the court will deal with him so severely. This morning the second murder trial was taken up. It is that of Alfred F. Jones colored charged with the killing of his wife Rachel Jones at Brownsville on the evening of July 4, 1906. The couple was married two years ago but they did not live together. Mrs. Jones had been making her home with Mrs. William Davis a colored woman. On July 4 Jones went to the Davis home and asked for his wife. She went out to see him and he apparently in a good humor asked her to go home with him. She replied that she would go as soon as she could dress. Jones refused to wait upon her and he left. Later he met her on the street and shot her three times killing her instantly. Attorneys Crow and Shelby are conducting the defense and District Attorney Hudson the prosecution. Jones entered a plea of not guilty. All morning was taken up in endeavoring to secure a jury. Only one juryman had been secured on the panel at 11 o’clock.

LITTLE GIRL WAS
AN EYE WITNESS –

Eva Mitchell Saw Alfred
Jones Shoot His Wife
Down on Street.

CRIED TO HIM “OH DON”T”

Only part of a Quarrel She Heard
Was Jones Telling His Wife That
She Would Do as He Wanted Her

   The principal witness for the State was Eva Mitchell, a 10 year old girl who witnessed the tragedy. The witness testified that she was standing across the street when Jones met his wife. She did not ever hear their conversation and did not pay much attention to them until she heard Jones first shot. She looked around in the direction of the couple and saw Mrs. Jones staggering. She cried out as she saw Jones point the revolver at his wife a second time. Oh don’t. This seemed to attract his attention to the moment then he fired two more shots in rapid succession. He appeared to catch his wife as she was falling and laid her on the pavement. Then he walked down street where he met an officer and give himself up. All that the little girl could remember about the conversation was that Jones said something about saying that his wife would do as he wanted her to do. Other witnesses give practically the same testimony. None of them knew the nature of the quarrel.

MRS. SUE JONES

Prominent Resident of Dawson Dies
Suddenly at Uniontown.

   Stricken with heart failure in the office of a physician in the First National Bank building, Uniontown, yesterday afternoon, Mrs. Susanna Jones, aged 60, a prominent and well known woman of Dawson, died in a few minutes. She was given immediate medical attention but death came almost instantly. Just a few minutes previous to her death Mrs. Jones complained of a tightness in her chest and asked permission to sit near a window while taking a dose of aromatic spirits of ammonia. Hardly had she swallowed the liquid before she became unconscious. Dr. J. W. Parshall was called and instantly realized the precarious state of the woman. He quickly returned to his office for a hypodermic. Before he could get back Mrs. Jones had passed away. Mrs. Jones had also been troubled with rheumatism and came to Uniontown in her auto yesterday for consultation with a physician by whom she had been treated several times. She was preparing to leave his office when she became faint and requested a seat near a window until she was strong enough to leave the office. Suddenly she became pale and her head dropped in such a manner as to cause alarm. The physician made a hasty examination and summoned Dr. Parshall. The woman was beyond medical assistance. Mrs. Jones had returned from Battle Creek, Mich., about a week ago and had felt somewhat improved. In company with her chauffeur, Don Porter, his wife and Mrs. Gault, Mrs. Jones made the trip to Uniontown. Mrs. Jones was widely known and highly esteemed in Dawson, Vanderbilt and vicinity where she had spent all her life. She had been residing with her brother, W. H. Moore at Vanderbilt for some time. She is survived by the following brothers and sisters, all of whom are prominent: H. B. and W. H. Moore, of Dawson; J. C. Moore, of Vanderbilt; Mrs. Sarah B. Cochran and Mrs. N. A. Rist, of Dawson, and Mrs. Lyle Lowstetter, of Berlin, Germany. Mrs. Jones was the aunt of James Smith, of Dawson, who is well known in Uniontown.

  UNIONTOWN, Oct. 25— Thomas Porter Jones, President of the Uniontown School Board and a well known lawyer, was found dead yesterday afternoon at 3:10 in a room adjoining his office on East Main street. He had been dead for several hours. Mr. Jones had been ill throughout the summer, after a nervous collapse in the spring. He was subject to insomnia and had taken treatment at several health resorts without avail. His death came as a great shock to his friends. Mr. Jones was born August 11, 1872, in Georges township. He was the son of Reese S. and Frances Greenlee Jones. His father was a civil engineer. His mother died at an early age and a sister, Jennie Jones, cared for him during his youth. Deceased’s education was begun in the public schools of Georges township. At Georges Creek Academy he was a pupil of Professor A. C. Gilbert. He later came to Uniontown, where he entered the High School. In 1894 he entered the junior class at California Normal. He did not attend the following year and in 1896 he graduated at Indiana Normal. The first school taught by him was the White Rock school. The following term he taught at Ruble, where he was principal for three terms. In 1899 and 1900 deceased was principal of the Bellevernon public schools. He then came to Uniontown, but finished out a term as principal of the Bellevernon public schools. He then came to Uniontown, but finished out a term as principal of the Fairchance schools when the principal there resigned in 1901. The following year he was chosen superintendent of the Patton (Cambria county) schools, where he remained one year, coming back to Uniontown to begin the study of law. Deceased read Law in the offices of Cooper & Van Swearingen and was admitted to the Fayette county bar in 1901. As a member of the bar in Uniontown, he enjoyed a large law practice. At the time of his death he was the attorney for the Fayette County Poor Board, solicitor for the Borough of Bellevernon and counsel for the Fayette County Brewers’ Association. At the opening of the Spanish-American War in 1898 Mr. Jones enlisted in Company C. Tenth regiment, under Captain Daniel M. Bierer. He went to Honolulu and was sent back with Major Charles Crowell, who became sick. He was later elected first Lieutenant of the company and for a time was the officer in charge of the company. Before the company was transferred from Uniontown to Somerset last winter he resigned on account of the great pressure of business. Thomas Porter Jones was well known in fraternal circles. He was a member of the Fayette Lodge No. 228, Free and Accepted Masons; a member of the Pittsburg Consistory, being of the thirty- second degree, and also was a member of the Syria Temple at Pittsburg. He was a member of the Uniontown lodge, B. P. O. Elks, and was affiliated with the Grand Fraternity. As a member of the Uniontown school board, Mr. Jones did much for the good of the local schools. His term as director would have expired in December. Deceased married Miss Maude Sutton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Sutton, in June 1898. Two children were born to them, Boyd D. who is now 12 years of age, and Margaret, who is 10 years old. At an early age Mr. Jones became a member of the Presbyterian church, to which denomination his parents belonged. In politics he was a Republican. Early last spring Mr. Jones began to suffer from stomach trouble and nervousness. He went to Battle Creek, Mich., where he remained six weeks and on his return felt much improved. He spent some time at Bear Creek and then went to Cambridge Springs, where he remained for ten days. Mr. Jones received a great shock during the winter occasioned by the death of his sister, Miss Jennie Jones, who had cared for him when a boy after the death of his mother. He loved her greatly and her death came as a great sorrow to him. Besides the widow and two children, Mr. Jones is survived by brothers and sisters, Mrs. Jesse M. Stewart, Mrs. Joseph High, Mrs. John Keiger, Mrs. Carrie Dills, Mrs. Elizabeth Thomas, Jessie G. Jones and William Jones, of near Smithfield, and Charles A. Jones of Urichsville, Ohio.
