Uniontown Nov 29, 1879 — The boiler explosion yesterday afternoon at the coal works of Ried Brothers, near Dunbar Furnace, eight miles below here, turns out to be worse than was at first supposed. Two men were instantly killed and one died with in an hour.
Their names were Richard Evans, J.J. Miller and Daniel McGarvey. Two more Josh Mowery and Joseph Vayone, died last night, and the sixth man, Morgan McGill this afternoon. John Dougherty, the pit boss hurt both externally and internally, and his recovery is considered improbable. Seven other men are suffering from wounds, scalds and burns, but none of them thought to be fatally injured. The disaster occurred in this way; Eight men were on the roof of the boiler house, and with the assistance of a number below were erecting a new smoke stack. The steam penetrating through the roof annoyed the men above, and Vayone, the yard boss, orderd the escape valve to be closed. This was done, and within two minutes the boiler exploded with terrific force. Daniel McGarvey, the engineer, was thrown a hundred feet in the air and one hundred and fifty feet distant into an adjoining field. He alighted on his head in a beaten clay foot path, in which his head half buried itself. The force of the fall ruptured his abdomen and let his entrails out. John Mowey was scalded to death. His flesh was cooked until it was so tender that his abdomen burst under the distention of his stomach and bowels, and these organs pushed themselves to the surface. Richard Evans was killed by a bar of iron striking him across the forehead and imbedding itself in his brain. Vayone died last night and McGill this afternoon, both from internal and external injuries. The roof was torn to shreds. Hardly a fragment as large as a man's hat can be found, except here and there a stick of wood. The general demolition could not have been more complete. With exception of McGarvey all those killed leave large families - Reid Brothers are bearing all of the funeral expenses.

J. O. MILLER DEATH COMES AS A SHOCK Former Sheriff and Steward of County Home
Dies Suddenly Monday Morning.
HAD BEEN ILL BUT FEW DAYS.
Attack of Erysipelas, Combined With Bright's Disease, Proves Fatal to One of
the County's Best Known and Respected Residents.
-----After an illness of only a few days, Joseph O. Miller, aged 63, died early Monday morning, March 14th, 1910, at his home on Walnut street where he had resided for the past 10 years. Saturday last Erysipelas set in and the evening of the same day an attack of kidney trouble followed which hastened the end. The death of Mr. Miller makes the passing away of one of the best known and
prominent men of Uniontown as well as Fayette County. Deceased was a son of the late Thomas Miller and was born in Jefferson township, Feb. 12 1847, and lived on the farm with his father until Feb. 26, 1862, when he enlisted in the Union Army under Major Jesse B. Ramsey, a recruiting officer at Brownsville. He served in Company H. Seventh Pennsylvania Cavalry until the close of the war and during service constantly proved his efficiency and sterling worth as a fighter. He received his honorable discharge Sept. 5, 1865. The winter of 1865-6 he attended school and during the following two years followed mining and coke drawing at the Tyrone and Jackson mines. He then learned the glass trade, which he worked at for five years and later engaged in the saw mill
business, residing at this time in Redstone township. In 1886, Mr. Miller was elected to the office of sheriff of Fayette County, the first Republican to be elected to this office since Eli Cope in 1860. Mr. Miller was the 36th sheriff of Fayette County and filled the position with credit. He moved to Uniontown 23 years ago and for the past decade he had resided on Walnut Street. In 1904
he was elected steward of the County Home and served 4 years. During the past winter he took a trip south and in the weekly issue of this paper of Feb. 10, an interesting letter from him at St. Cloud, Florida, was published. Joseph O. Miller was always a hard-working man earning his bread by the sweat of his brow. In his dealings he had always been honest and square, a sober and industrious citizen, respected by all who knew him. In all of his public life he discharged his duties with conscientious fidelity to the trust reposed in him. In 1871 Mr. Miller was united in marriage to Miss Loretta Craft and his wife and four children are left to mourn his loss: Fred O. Miller, Mrs. C. D.
Case and Mrs. B. A. Miles of this place and Mrs. G.G. Vance of Greensburg. He is also survived by two brothers and two sisters: Dr. George Miller, Joplin, Missouri; David Miller, Eldorado, Colorado; Mrs. Minerva Franklin, Zanesville, Ohio; Mrs. Mattie Patterson, Washburn, North Dakota. Deceased was a member of the G.A.R., of the Elks, the Knights of Pythias and an associate member of the Knights of Malta.

Joseph O. Miller
That J. O. Miller had a great many friends was not surprising. His naturally sunny and generous disposition, his radio-active temperament, his abiding sense of humor, quick perceptions, constant willingness to help all around him, to be kind to them, to laugh with them in their hours of merriment, and console with them when in grief, made everybody his friend. His death is personals lose to all who knew him. He was a wonderfully winning man. We shall miss the fond light in his eyes, the smile on his face, the cordiality of greeting, with all which he was wont to meet his friends. He was not the kind of man to be picked by death from amid a wide circle of acquaintances and be soon forgotten. There were in him so many of the enduring qualities of a high type of manhood as to enroll him among the characters of a local community who do not readily pass into oblivion. He was neither born nor bred a scholar, but among those with whom he dwelt he left many broad and
lasting impressions for good where scholars never tread. He was a brave soldier in the forefront of war, and equally brave and fearless in facing the vicissitudes of civil life. He had an upright mind, a self-reliant heart, a dauntless love and the kindred spirits who had preceded him to the Great Beyond welcomed his with no feeling of joy deeper than the grief of those who saw him
go. Good Bye, Joe Miller
The funeral of J. O. Miller occurred this afternoon from the M. E. church at 2:30. Representatives of the G.A.R., Knights of Pythias, Elks and Knights of Malta were present, the deceased being a member of each. Services were conducted by Rev. J. B. Risk of the M. E. church, assisted by Rev. W. Scott Bowman of the Second Presbyterian church. The pall bearers were W. E. Crow, C.

On Wednesday the 8th of March, at her residence near New Haven, of pulmonary consumption, Miss Nancy Miller, aged twenty years, two months, and eight days.
Naturally kind and affectionate, this interesting young lady won the respect and esteem of all her acquaintances. Ever mild and amiable in her disposition she was known only to be loved, while those who knew her best, loved her most. Always composed and submissive during a lingering illness of eighteen months, often expressing her sincere gratitude to her Heavenly Father, that her afflictions were so light, her whole soul seemed filled with love to the Saviour, whose presence she longed to enjoy. Her piety was humble and uniform evincing very much of a firm child-like reliance in a Redeemer's righteousness. Her closing scene was calm and peaceful. Fully aware of her approaching dissolution, she spoke of it, as though she spoke of taking of rest in sleep, and passed away happy in the unclouded hope of a blessed immortality.
"Thou'rt gone to the grave, but 'twere wrong to deplore thee,
When God was thy ransom, thy guardian and guide:
He gave thee, and took thee, and soon will restore thee,
Where death has no sting, since the Saviour has died."
