...a dimly-lit room in Uniontown hospital Thursday night, was the unseen witness and uninvited guest at a wedding ceremony that gave a bride the happiest day of her life just 24 hours before she peacefully passed away.
Propped high in her hospital bed, which she had occupied for 14 days, Ada Kiger Moore, 49, of 154 Fayette street, Morgantown, W. Va., took the vows that made her the wife of Wayland Birch, well-known Point Marion man.
Flowers of the sick room furnished a colorful background for the nuptials.
Across the counterpane lay a spray of gladiolas-the bride's bouquet.
At the foot of the bed stood Marion Kiger, Morgantown, brother of the woman, and Lester, Patton, Pittsburgh, brother-in-law, as witnesses.
Dr. William Blake Hindman, pastor of Uniontown First Presbyterian church, stood near as he intoned the words that united the couple. The ring was slipped over her finger. The benediction pronounced.
And death temporarily withdrew as smiles of happiness shone from the fame of the woman who had murmured:
"Why postpone our marriage? I had planned it. And, it would give me a lot of satisfaction if we didn't delay our plans."
"This is the happiest day of my life," the bride whispered to the group who, alone, knew that the end was not far off but who bravely held back the tears that threatened to overflow as they realized her happiness was to be short-lived.
"I'm glad we didn't put it off," Mrs. Birth reiterated. "It has made me so happy."
Twenty-four hours later-to the very hour- she died, carrying with her still the smile that had shone so brightly as she took the vows.
Mrs. Birch, who husband is editor of The Point Marion News, was for the last 35 years an employe of Western Union Telegraph Company in Morgantown, having succeeded her father, the late George Kiger, to the management of the office following his death in 1927.
She had planned her marriage to Mr. Birch for June. On April 27 she entered Uniontown hospital for a major operation. Peritonitis developed and attending physicians informed relatives of her critical condition.
When she told them she wished to avoid any delay in her wedding plans - although she did not intimate realization that she might not recover - they co-operated with her.
"It would give me so much satisfaction," she told them. And they spurred efforts that would culminate in the wedding she had been so carefully planning.
A graduate of Morgantown high school in the class of 1906, Mrs. Birch devoted her life to her family, always cherishing their ideals and ambitions and never failing to offer a willing hand when opportunity came her way. She was a devout member of the Presbyterian church.
From last Monday morning until the time of her death she had been in a critical condition and despite her gallant fight against the odds of infection she fought a losing battle.
Born November 27, 1888, at Rohr, W. Va. She was the second child of George and Ludema Shaffer Kiger. She was preceded in death by her father, on July 5, 1927.???

At an early age the deceased connected herself with the Frame Presbyterian Church, under the pastoral care of Rev. Dr. Fairchild, but, by change of residence, has been, for a number of years, in full communion with the church of Laurel Hill, of which Rev. J. Stoneroad has pastoral supervision. So far as known to the writer, her Christian life has been one of marked consistency. Constitutionally amiable and gentle, the influence of a living piety threw additional interest around her character, concentrating upon her the special esteem of all her acquaintances.
Though for many years the child of affliction, she bore it all with unwanted patience. Her piety was marked by an humble, retiring spirit, rather than by any tendency to parade. Her final illness was painful and protracted, and though in it's earlier development, darkness and doubt hung over the horizon of the future, yet for several weeks preceeding (sic) her decease, unmingled so**** in Jesus as her Almighty Redeemer, marked the entire remainder of her religious experience. Her inward peace found frequent utterance in such expressions as these, "When shall I see my Savior's face, and on his bosom rest." "O death where is thy sting! O grave, where is thy victory." And when she seemed to recover in a measure from the severe spasms of her disease, she felt quite disappointed, "having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which was far better." Disease now having accomplished its mission, she fell softly asleep in the arms of death and awoke in glory. L.D.

Morgan-Oct. 19th, of Diptheria Thomas Jefferson, son of Capt. Wm. L and Sarah Ann Morgan, aged 11 years and 3 months.
Dearest Jeffy thou hast left us,
And thy loss we deeply feel,
It is God that hath bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
We miss your smiling face,
You were your fathers joy your mothers pride.
No one can fill your place,
When we gather around the fireside.
Yet again we hope to meet you.
When the day of life has fled,
And in heaven with joy to greet you,
Where no farewell tear is shed.
You were lovely and you were fair,
And for a while you were given,
An Angel come and claimed his own,
And bore you home to heaven.

ELCO—Two Fayette County men were killed early Wednesday in a one-car crash on Route 88 in Elco, Washington County. State police said officials from the Washington County Coroner's office pronounced Jarrett Lanita Dotson, 18, and Adam George Morris, 21, both of McClellandtown, dead at the scene shortly before 3 a.m. A third passenger, Joshua Darnell, 21, of Uniontown suffered serious injuries, police said. Investigators said the driver of the car, Kelsey Blasinsky of Carmichaels, also suffered serious injuries. Both Darnell and Blasinsky were flown by medical helicopter to hospitals in Pittsburgh for treatment. Updates on their conditions were not available Wednesday.
Police said the crash occurred at 1:25 a.m. as the 2008 four-door Mazda sedan was traveling north. Police said Blasinsky lost control of the vehicle while trying to negotiate a curve in the road and then struck a guardrail on the east side of the road near the intersection with Dowler Street. The car then traveled across both lanes and began to overturn, police said. Investigators said the car rolled over multiple times before striking a tree in a yard on Route 88. Both Blasinsky and Dotson, who were not wearing seat belts, were ejected from the car, police said.
Police noted that Morris and Darnell were wearing seat belts when the accident occurred. Route 88 was closed while police investigated the crash. Volunteer firefighters from Roscoe, Stockdale and Allenport, along with emergency personnel from Rostraver/West Newton EMS and Brownsville Ambulance, joined police and officials from the coroner's office at the scene.

Cause of death– Consumption
July 1st was the original date set for Morris' execution. The papers
relating to his trial and conviction were lost in the numerous pigeon-holes
about the Executive mansion at Harrisburg, and Governor Hastings was unusually
long in fixing a date to carry out the death sentence. The delay was such
that Morris' friends thought the Governor must have a very warm spot for
the young murderer, and they got up a petition, signed by over 1,000 names,
pleading for a commutation of sentence to life imprisonment on the score that
insanity was hereditary in Morris' family. The petition brought the case to
Governor Hastings' notice. He had the papers looked up and named July 1st
as the day for Morris to hang.
The attorneys for the defense then took up the matter, and succeeded in
obtaining a respite until September 1st. The Pardon Board has twice refused
to recommend Morris to the Governor's clemency, and his relatives have given
up hope of saving his life. Last week, Isaac Morris, the condemned boy's
father, visited the jail and bade his son farewell.
Since the first of the month Morris has been guarded in his cell day
and night by a death watch. He is allowed to walk around the jail corridors
for 20 minutes each morning and evening. He chafes under the solitary
confinement. Ever since his incarceration until August 1st he was allowed
the freedom of the jail. He posed as a champion boxer among the prisoners,
and was always glad to do odd jobs about the corriders (sic) for the exercise
and diversion there was in it.
Morris will be hanged on the same scaffold on which Taylor, Clark and
Eisiminger, the Greene county murderers, died. It has been borrowed from
the Greene county officials and is all ready to place in the east end of
the jail cage the day before the execution, which will be the first inside
the walls of Fayette's new jail. The last hanging at Uniontown was that of
John Metz, an Italian, about 12 years ago.
Owing to the preparation for the execution next Monday will not be
visitors' day and no one will be admitted on that day. Sheriff Chalfant
has decided to admit visitors from 1 to 4 P.M. to-morrow. Monday evening
the prisoners will be let out into the main corridor for exercise. They
will be in charge of deputies, and after a short promenade will be locked
up again till after the execution is over.
Mrs. Adeline, wife of J. A. Nedrow of Scottdale, who is a sister of
Frank P. Morris, the condemned man, and his brother, Maple S. Morris, spent
Tuesday morning in Uniontown. They conversed with their brother sometime.
They came to this place on the 2:13 P.M. southwest train and went to the
undertaking establishment of Morris & Company, where they made arrangements
for the funeral. A plain casket was ordered; necessarily a large one, for
Morris, though called the "boy murderer," is tall and heavy. On the day of
his execution Morris will be 19 years, 6 months and 8 days old. The casket
ordered will be taken to Uniontown on the 7:42 B. & O. train, Tuesday
morning. It will be placed in an empty cell till after the execution,
when Morris' body will be placed in it. No inquest or post mortem will be
held on the remains.
The execution will take place between 1:40 and 2:15 P.M. This arrangement
has been made to give the people holding tickets of admission from Brownsville
and Monongahela City to get from the depot to the jail. On account of this
arrangement the body cannot be brought to this place on the 3:13 Southwest
train, and will have to lie in the jail till the train departs which arrives
here at 5:53 P.M.
On its arrival here it will be placed in Morris & Company's morgue, where
it will be kept till Wednesday morning. In the meantime the casket will not
be opened to satisfy the curiosity of anyone. On Wednesday morning the remains
will be taken to Rich Hill Cemetery, a little burying ground about two miles
east of the Breakneck reservoir. There the mortal remains of Frank Morris,
the "boy murderer," will be given a final and peaceful incarceration, not
more than a mile from the scene of the savage crime which is to be the cause
of his ignominious end and the last long rest on his native hills.
The murder in expiation of which Frank Morris must give his young life
was a brutal one, committed two years ago. Bernard Loker was a German, who
tilled a small farm on the top of Chestnut Ridge above this place. This farm
Loker bought from Isaac Morris. Frank saw Loker pay his father the cash for
the farm and got it into his head that the old German was wealthy. He
accordingly waited until one date Loker was working about his log cabin
alone, when Morris stepped up behind and blew his brains out. He then
ransacked the house and secured $38. He was arrested the following day
and several times since has attempted to implicate others in his crime.
Morris was a dime novel fiend.

RANK MORRIS, the boy murderer of Bernard Loker, who has attracted so much attention since his incarceration will expiate his crime on the gallows at Uniontown next Tuesday, September 1st. Morris has been the object of much interest, not only from the fact that he is only 19 years old, but because some desperate efforts have been made whereby he might cheat the gallows, notably his daring attempt to escape by means of the "soup hole" in the jail. His lawyers have been extremely active in bringing his case before the Pardon Board and failing there doing everything possible to stave off the fatal day in the hope of ultimately saving Morris' neck.

GEORGE L. MORRIS
July 1st was the original date set for Morris' execution. The papers relating to his trial and conviction were lost in the numerous pigeon-holes about the Executive mansion at Harrisburg, and Governor Hastings was unusually long in fixing a date to carry out the death sentence. The delay was such that Morris' friends thought the Governor must have a very warm spot for the young murderer, and they got up a petition, signed by over 1,000 names, pleading for a commutation of sentence to life imprisonment on the score that insanity was hereditary in Morris' family. The petition brought the case to Governor Hastings' notice. He had the papers looked up and named July 1st as the day for Morris to hang.
The attorneys for the defense then took up the matter, and succeeded in obtaining a respite until September 1st. The Pardon Board has twice refused to recommend Morris to the Governor's clemency, and his relatives have given up hope of saving his life. Last week, Isaac Morris, the condemned boy's father, visited the jail and bade his son farewell.
Since the first of the month Morris has been guarded in his cell day and night by a death watch. He is allowed to walk around the jail corridors for 20 minutes each morning and evening. He chafes under the solitary confinement. Ever since his incarceration until August 1st he was allowed the freedom of the jail. He posed as a champion boxer among the prisoners, and was always glad to do odd jobs about the corriders (sic) for the exercise and diversion there was in it.
Morris will be hanged on the same scaffold on which Taylor, Clark and Eisiminger, the Greene county murderers, died. It has been borrowed from the Greene county officials and is all ready to place in the east end of the jail cage the day before the execution, which will be the first inside the walls of Fayette's new jail. The last hanging at Uniontown was that of John Metz, an Italian, about 12 years ago.
Owing to the preparation for the execution next Monday will not be visitors' day and no one will be admitted on that day. Sheriff Chalfant has decided to admit visitors from 1 to 4 P.M. to-morrow. Monday evening the prisoners will be let out into the main corridor for exercise. They will be in charge of deputies, and after a short promenade will be locked up again till after the execution is over.
Mrs. Adeline, wife of J. A. Nedrow of Scottdale, who is a sister of Frank P. Morris, the condemned man, and his brother, Maple S. Morris, spent Tuesday morning in Uniontown. They conversed with their brother sometime. They came to this place on the 2:13 P.M. southwest train and went to the undertaking establishment of Morris & Company, where they made arrangements for the funeral. A plain casket was ordered; necessarily a large one, for Morris, though called the "boy murderer," is tall and heavy. On the day of his execution Morris will be 19 years, 6 months and 8 days old. The casket ordered will be taken to Uniontown on the 7:42 B. & O. train, Tuesday morning. It will be placed in an empty cell till after the execution, when Morris' body will be placed in it. No inquest or post mortem will be held on the remains.
The execution will take place between 1:40 and 2:15 P.M. This arrangement has been made to give the people holding tickets of admission from Brownsville and Monongahela City to get from the depot to the jail. On account of this arrangement the body cannot be brought to this place on the 3:13 Southwest train, and will have to lie in the jail till the train departs which arrives here at 5:53 P.M.
On its arrival here it will be placed in Morris & Company's morgue, where it will be kept till Wednesday morning. In the meantime the casket will not be opened to satisfy the curiosity of anyone. On Wednesday morning the remains will be taken to Rich Hill Cemetery, a little burying ground about two miles east of the Breakneck reservoir. There the mortal remains of Frank Morris, the "boy murderer," will be given a final and peaceful incarceration, not more than a mile from the scene of the savage crime which is to be the cause of his ignominious end and the last long rest on his native hills.

Then quite a number of Easter cards arrived on Saturday from those who did not know of Mrs. Morrow’s illness that that she would be gone on Easter Day, and the cards near the body, which was surrounded by sweet flowers, were mute messages of those to whom she was dear, people both old and young.

The time was too short after his mother took the turn for the worse for him to get home, but he is expected home tonight. The deceased was a woman of keen mental preceptions, sunshiny disposition and having a great deal of humor about her. She liked the company of young people and everywhere was welcomed and thought much of.

FOR THE GENIUS OF LIBERTY
You are called on from time to time to announce to your readers the melancholy intelligence that death has entered the family circle and chosen out his victims, thus practically saying to the survivors “be ye also ready.” Among other melancholy cases of this kind, you have lately told us of the death of four out of one house, viz: DANIEL, LEBIUS, CAROLINE, and MARY, sons and daughters of Mr. WILLIAM MOSER. While we are constrained to sympathize with the bereaved relations in their loss, we can likewise rejoice with the deceased in their unspeakable gain; and would say to weeping relatives, dry up your sorrows and try to be thankful that your beloved friends have gone to eternal rest, and escaped the toils, the dangers, and the sorrows attendant on longer days. To all survivors we would beg leave to say, be on the “watch,” for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh.” The following stanzas are offered as a tribute to the memory of the deceased:
