Jacob LISTON ( -1900)

Obituary is typed as published. Surname is spelled differently in each article.

JACOB LISTON

   Jacob Liston committed suicide today as the result of a remarkable accident of which he was the victem while sitting with his family in his home in Stewwart Twp, (Fayette Co., Pa.), one day, six months ago. That day he jumped to his feet in great pain, and exclaimed "Did you see that awful lightenting?" He clasped his hand to his jam and said, "My God! My jaw bone has been broken into a thousand pieces." The family are positive that there was no lightenting or thunder, but Liston appeared to be blinded and deafend by it. His jaws were bleeding, and a doctor removed 35 pieces of shattered bone in dressing the wound. Five years ago Liston had been badly poisened by an anesthetic while having teeth pulled and suffered from it for a long time. He was full of hallucinations after he lost his jaw, and today, when alone, he blew the top of his head off with shotgun.

BLEW OUT HIS BRAINS
Jacob Listen Shoots Himself With a Shot
Gun at His Home in Dunbar

   Jacob Listen, one of the oldest and best known citizens of Dunbar township, committed suicide Tuesday evening by blowing out his brains with a shot gun. He had been in poor health for a long time, and it is thought that this was the cause which led him to the terrible act. During the past three months he had been confined to his bed. Some of his relatives from Pittsburgh called upon him Tuesday to remain for a few days. While all were absent from his room, he arose from bed, when to an adjoining room and secured a loaded shot gun. He returned to his bed chamber, closed the door, then crawled into the bed and blew his brains out. His family heard the report of the gun and rushed to his room, finding him dead. Several years ago Liston was the victim of a peculiar experience. While seated around the fireside one evening with his family he arose suddenly and clasping his jaws with his hand, exclaimed, "Did you see the bright flash of light, and hear the loud peal of thunder? My jaws are breaking into a hundred pieces." An examination proved his jaw was splintered into small sections. The local doctor removed over 35 pieces. He is survived by a wife and seven children.

 Mr. Liston was well known not only in this district but statewide for his work in conservation. He served as president both of the Uniontown Chapter and of the state division of the Izaak Walton League of America. He was recognized as on of the leading authorities on birds and on trees and plants in Fayette County. He authored numerous newspaper articles on hunting and fishing and the outdoors. His work on behalf of better fishing conditions on Dunbar Creek and other trout streams in the county are well known to the Pennsylvania Fish Commission and area sportsmen. An avid historian, he played a major role in the restoration of one of the county’s landmarks, the old Wharton Furnace in Wharton Twp.

 Always interested in good literature, he was at the time of his death trying to promote interest in poetry and having it returned to the public school curriculum. Active in the community, he had served for many years as a member of the Fayette County Coroner’s Jury.

M. Hayes Liston: Legend In Own Lifetime
By RALPH SCHULZE

 Few men become a legend in their own lifetime. M. Hayes Liston of Uniontown, who died last Saturday at 95, was an exception. He never held political office, he never wrote a book or painted a picture, or did any of the things that usually bring fame and recognition. But by just being himself he became one of the best known residents of the district. If there was one factor that set him apart from others it was his inability or refusal to accept ready-made opinions. He had to think things through for himself. Some thought he was just a stubborn, argumentative old man, who dissented just to be different.

 Others recognized him as an authority on a wide range of subjects from birds to clean streams and from poetry to history. The real Hayes Liston, of course, was known only to a few close friends. To them, he was loyal, dependable, always ready to help. The employes of the Herald-Standard had for years looked to him as an authority to whom they could turn when information on some subject was needed. Whether it was a leaf from some tree or a strange bird or bug that had to be identified, or some historical incident that needed to be verified, Hayes was always the man to contact.

 Down through the years he had become to be known as one of the three most knowledgeable persons in this area, the others being former educator Rodney D. Mosier and the late Mary Kate O'Bryon. Now that Hayes and Mary Kate are gone and Rodney is ill, we will be wondering whom to consult. Throughout the years, many persons have commented about the sharpness of Mr. Liston's mind. The expression, "sharp as a razor blade," always, seemed to fit him, even when he got into his 90s. He preserved the gift of keen thinking and memory to the day before his death.

 Mr. Liston was never one to complain about poor health or the way he felt. Members of the family can't recall him ever telling them he wasn't well. He even went out of his way on a number of occasions to hide illness or injury from them. He seldom, if ever, took a drink of water. If he was back in the mountains and came across a clean, unpolluted stream he might take a short sip of the icy cold liquid. But back home he never touched water. He preferred fruit juice or, sometimes, a whiskey toddy. Mr. Liston was in superb health for a man of his age. He didn't smoke, he didn't overeat, and he didn't have an ounce of excess fat on his body. He was in such excellent condition that he was able to out-walk men 40 years younger than himself. Walking, in fact, was one of his favorite pastimes. Nothing gave him more pleasure than a hike through the fields and woods of his beloved Fayette County with a close friend.

 He waited until he was 71 years old to kill his first deer. He didn't believe in killing just for the fun of it. Whenever he killed, it was to put meat on his table. He was always more concerned about providing hunting opportunities for others, especially for future generations. He disagreed with some of the policies of the Pennsylvania Game and Fish Commissions but not with their programs to provide better hunting and fishing. He was especially pleased every time the Game Commission or the Dept. of Forests and Waters increased their land holdings in Fayette County. And depressed whenever the Fish Commission removed some trout stream from its stocking list.

 The shameful condition of Redstone Creek and Coal Lick Run disturbed and angered Mr. Liston. During the 1950s and 1960s, he appeared at a number of Uniontown City Council meetings and urged the city fathers to do something to clean up the local creeks and stop people from throwing trash into them. "I know they consider me a pest and a troublemaker," he told friends during the era when J. Watson Sembower was mayor. "What they say about me is unimportant as long as it produces action." At his urging, council set aside money to clean the creeks. They even went further and named him boss of the creek cleaning crew. The boss put on old clothes and worked the same as the other men, removing shopping carts, old tires, and the multitude of other Items that had either been washed into the city from the townships or tossed in the streams here. Everyone is in agreement on one thing: during the time that Hayes Liston was in charge of the project, Redstone Creek and Coal Lick Run were the cleanest they have ever been.

 During the 1950s there was a loud outcry about the evils of coal stripping. Mr. Liston had been in the coal business for years, and it was his contention that there were both good and bad strippers. To prove his point, he took reporters and others to coal stripping operations to show them that such projects, when done right, can be beneficial rather than harmful.

 After the death of his wife, Florence, in the late 1950s, Mr. Liston lived alone in his big house at 31 Shady Lane. He continued to do so until the time of his death. He told a friend, "I love my family, and because I do I want them to have lives of their own." Friends and acquaintances can't recall Mr. Liston ever saying anything unpleasant or critical about any member of his family. Just the opposite. He was always bragging about how wonderful they were. Although he was gentle with his close friends, Mr. Liston could be hard on people he didn't like. Anyone who incurred his displeasure received an old fashioned tongue lashing.

 In this era of "follow the leader," it is doubtful that another Hayes Liston will ever appear on the district scene. If so, the community and area will be the real losers because men of Mr. Liston's mold, who are not afraid to speak up when they think mistakes are being made, are needed to prevent apathy from taking over.

SUDDEN DEATH OF
2 CITIZENS LAID
TO INTENSE HEAT

Lyman Litman, City Plumbing
Inspector And Mrs. LaClair

MERCURY RECORDS 95

   Deaths of two prominent Uniontown residents on Tuesday were laid indirectly to the intense heat and humidity which saw mercury register an official 101 mark during the most torrid weather of the season.

   Lyman Litman, aged 67, of 13 Shady Lane, city plumbing inspector, was seized by an heart attack, super-induced by the heat, and succumbed at 10:20 a.m. while conversing with a visitor in his offices in the City Hall.

   Mrs. Elizabeth LaClair, aged 80, widow of James Lewis LaClair, a former resident of Masontown, died suddenly at 9:30 yesterday morning at the home of a daughter, Mrs. N. B. Endsley, 53 Oakland avenue. Her death was attributed to heart disease and probable heat prostration.

   Mr. Litman had complained of feeling ill Monday evening but walked down town as was his usual custom. He reported to his offices yesterday morning and greeted City Hall attaches in the same genial manner. Within an hour, he had told friends of the heat, and was seized with a heart attack. While talking with Emil W. Garwood in his office Tuesday morning, Mr. Litman suddenly keeled over. Death was apparent before arrival of medical assistance. This is the second death in the family in little over a year, a daughter, Phoebe, having passed away in the Litman home at that time. A week ago, a son, Denny, was rushed to the hospital in Morgantown, W.Va., suffering severe knife wounds inflicted by an aged man in an assault in a park where the victim and a friend were sitting on a bench. Mr. Litman, a member of Third Presbyterian church, was the son of the late Amity and Phoebe Wood Litman. Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Mary Schimele Litman, and the following children: Walter, at home; Kurtz, Wilson, Pa.; Denny, Morgantown, W.Va.; Lyman, Jr., Los Angeles, Cal.; Mrs. Grace Cottrell, Pacific Beach, Cal. Funeral services for Mr. Litman will be conducted at 2:30 Thursday afternoon at the residence in Shady Lane. Rev. Plummer Harvey of the Third Presbyterian church, will officiate, and burial will be in Oak Grove cemetery.

   Mrs. LaClair was one of the best known older residents of Uniontown. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rollo McCann of Masontown, and was the last surviving member of the family. She was a member of Class 13 of the Third Presbyterian church of Uniontown. In addition to Mrs. Endsley she leaves the following other children: Mrs. Sara Hall, Centerville; Leslie, of Canton, O.; John, Orville, James, George and Earl, all of Uniontown; 21 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. Funeral rites will be held at 10:30 Thursday morning at the residence of Mrs. Endsley. Rev. C. C. Sollenberger, pastor of the Brethren church, will officiate, and burial will follow in Park Place cemetery under the direction of J. Harry Johnston & Sons.

SUNDAY ACCIDENTS KILL 2

By Rebekah Sungala

   Two people were killed in separate vehicle accidents Sunday. State police said a teenager was killed and another person seriously injured in a one-vehicle accident in German Township, Fayette County, Pa. Police said a second accident involving a tractor- trailer truck in Greene County killed a Mount Morris man.

   According to police, the first accident occurred at 4:10 a.m. on Route 166 near Gates Road and claimed the life of 17-year-old Rebecca Livingston of Uniontown. Trooper Jeffrey P. Tagmyer said Livingston was a passenger in the vehicle. Tagmyer indicated in a press release that an unidentified male driving the vehicle, a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier, suffered major injuries as a result of the crash. According to police reports, Livingston and the male were traveling north on Route 166 when the vehicle went off the road while rounding a curve and crashed into a sewer drain. Police said the impact allegedly caused the vehicle to flip onto its roof, noting that both people were ejected from the vehicle. Neither Livingston nor the male wore seatbelts when the accident occurred, police said. Officials said both were taken by ambulance to area hospitals.

   A spokeswoman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said Livingston was pronounced dead in the emergency department at UPMC Presbyterian hospital at 7:03 a.m. Cause of death is blunt force trauma to the head, the spokeswoman said, noting that the manner of death will be listed as accidental. Officials said the male was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, W.Va. An update on his condition was not available.

Jefferson LOWE ( -1870)

   Jefferson Lowe, the unfortunate man who was thus summarily ushered into eternity [by Henry Doran], was about 48 years of age. He was a man of giant mould, fully six feet two or three inches high, and weighing from 220 to 230 pounds. His limbs were those of a giant, and he would have made an admirable model for a sculpter, intent on sculpturing a Hercules. His strength was prodigious, and for years he has been notorious as the champion fighter of this county. He was not a quarrelsome man when sober, and rarely, if ever, picked a quarrel with any person. And even when under the influence of liquor he was not apt to create a disturbance. Of late years he has drank a great deal, and was kroken and prematurely old in appearance. He was born February 2d, 1822, in Georges’ township, near Oliphant’s Furnace, and was a collier by trade. He served three years in Co., E, 85th Penna., Vols., and was a good soldier. He has a brother living in that township, who is a sober, industrious man, a good citizen, and a consistent member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. The deceased leaves a wife and eight children, one of them a babe four weeks old, in almost destitute circumstances. On them and on his brother and other relatives, this terrible tragedy calls with crushing weight. [The detailed inquest and trial are also contained in the newspaper listed below]
