Col. Joseph MOSS Stone  ( -1841)

  DIED— At his residence in German township, on Friday the 22d ult., Col. Joseph Moss, in the 93rd year of his age. The deceased was born in Chester county, Pa. on the 19th of July, 1748; emigrated to this county, (then Westmoreland,) in the fall of 1776, and settled in what was known by the “Dunlap’s Creek Settlement,” then almost a trackless wilderness, where he resided until his death. Col. M. was among those intrepid pioneers, who left the homes and cultivated fields of their fathers, to seek their fortunes in the wilds of the western wilderness, where the war whoop of the merciless savage echoed upon the mountain and along the dale, and the fearful howling of the beasts of prey died upon the breeze, as they trod in silence the deep recesses of the forests. The time when Col. M. came to the west, was a time of intense interest to an infant republic; but a few months had elapsed since the Colonies had shook off the yoke of bondage, so long pressed by the Mother Country upon the necks of their unoffending subjects; by this measure the aborigines of the western forests, whose barbarities are unexampled in the history of our country, had been let loose and were roaming about from settlement to settlement, committing depredations of the most appalling character. There was no safety either in the lives or property of the inhabitants. The tender female and helpless infant shared alike with the warrior, the cruelties inflicted with the tomahawk and scalping knife in the hands of the ruthless savage. To these scenes of cruelty and blood, Col. M. was not an idle spectator. Fired with the patriotism which characterized the men of that age, and , which was so eminently exhibited in his character, he was not long in deciding as to the duty he owed his country, his helpless family, and his fellow emigrants in Western Pennsylvania.

   His first expedition in defense of his country against the savage foe, was made in the year 1781. In this expedition, he served as a Lieutenant of a company of drafted militia, under the command of Capt. Philip Rogers. They rendezvoused temporarily at Col. Edward Cook’s in the Forks of Yough, from whence they marched to “Wallace’s Fort,” a frontier station, situated on the Loyalhannah River, in Westmoreland Co., where he remained in the service for two months. During his time an attack was made upon the Fort in the night by a body of Indians, amounting to 200, and after a warm contest, they were repulsed with considerable loss. In repelling this attack, L’eut. Moss distinguished himself, for bravery and officer-like conduct, meeting danger where ever duty required his presence, often placing his life in jeopardy, in order to encourage the dropping spirits of the little Spartan band of men then in the Fort, which, at the time the assault was made, only amounted to 14 effective men. For his gallantry on this occasion, he received the thanks of his superior officer, and on his return home soon after, he was welcomed among his neighbors and friends with feelings of lively emotion for his bravery in defense of them and their families.

   In the following year, Lieut. Moss was again summoned to the defense of the frontier settlements. He joined his company, in the Fall of that year, at “Gerard’s Fort,” on Big Whitely Creek, in Greene county. At this time, Capt. Andrew Robb was the commander of the Fort. Soon after Lieut. M. had joined his Company, he was ordered out with a detachment of forty men to relief of “Stradler’s Fort,” on Dunkard Creek, which had been infested by a large body of Indians. On the arrival of the Detachment, they discovered, to their great mortification, that the Fort had been taken by storm, all the inmates, with one exception, who alone had made his escape to tell the tale of woe, had been put to the sword, and nothing left by which the Post could be recognized but a heap of smoking ruins, and the little band had to return without having had an opportunity of distinguishing themselves in an engagement with the savage foe.

   With this expedition, closed the active military services of the deceased, and although frequently afterwards called by his fellow citizens to fill important posts, both civil and military, the duties of which he discharged with satisfaction to those by whom conferred and with honor to himself. He never again engaged in active military duty.

   The deceased enjoyed during his long life the highest regard and esteem of all who knew him. Kind and obliging as a neighbor, urbane in his manners, mild and generous in his disposition, he drew around him a circle of friends which seldom falls to the lot of a private citizen.

   His life as a Christian was no less distinguished for piety and correct Christian deportment. He made a profession of religion at an early age, and attached himself to the Presbyterian Church of “Fogs Manor,” in his native county, then under the Pastoral care of the Rev. Dr. Wilson. On his removal to the West, he united himself with the Church of his choice at Dunlap’s Creek, then under the care of the Rev. Dr. Dunlap, and throughout the remainder of his life he was distinguished for an humble and consistent course of conduct and conversation.

   But the humble writer of this brief obituary notice will not attempt to do justice to his memory; it must be left for an abler pen than he is capable of wielding. He was not of this age—the generation to which he belonged has long since gone the way of all men; and he too, after living to a good old age—one to which few of that generation ever arrive—has gone to join, we trust, the innumerable hosts of patriots and redeemed souls at God’s right hand, there to bask beneath the effulgent rays of the Son of Righteousness forever and ever.

   By this dispensation of Divine Providence a large circle of relatives are left to mourn the loss of his valuable Christian example and of a friendly adviser in times of trial and distress—the community a valuable citizen, and the church a useful and exemplary member. But they sorrow not as those who have no hope. Their loss is his infinite gain. He died as he had lived—an example of genuine piety and devotion to this Heavenly Father’s will. He lived the life of a christen, and died the death of the righteous. Let our last end be like his.

bullet Margercy MOSS died in 1853. Her obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(17)

DIED
On the 26th ult., in the 66th year of her age, Mrs. Margercy Moss, consort of Major Jacob Moss of German township. Her last sickness was of short duration. Death quickly did its work. A peaceful home and many devoted hearts are suddenly made desolute. She has long been a member of the Presbyterian Church, of a weak and quiet spirit. Modest and retiring, she prayed but little beyond the circle of her family, her relatives and immediate neighbors. but she possessed a kind an generous heart, which habitually prompted her to deeds of beneficence. She was enabled by divine grace to bear her last illness with remarkable composure and to speak of her approaching dissolution with as much calmness as if she had been preparing to go a journey. She was greatly beloved by her family and friends; and their hearts now bleed under the sad stroke which has taken away the desire of their eyes. She has gone from her place in the domestic circle. There is now one vacant chair. She has not however, left us to mourn as those that have no hope. We fondly trust that another seat in glory is now filled, where, with golden harp, she will forever utter in sweetest strains of praise her adoring gratitude to Him whose sovereign grace made her an heir of heaven. S.W.

Hannah MOUNTAIN ( -1864)

DEATHS

  MOUNTAIN— In Addison, Somerset county, Pa., of Friday the 2nd of December, Mrs. Hannah Mountain, in the 93rd year of her age. Another of those loved and venerable links that united us to a past age is broken. One by one they are passing away and soon nothing but kindly memories of friends, or the loving remembrances of closer kindred will be left us. Mother Mountain retained all her faculties to the last and sunk to sleep, from pure physical exhaustion, and not from disease. She had lived in that age when the Red men roamed proudly through his native and scarce broken forests, when the commonest necessaries of life, (salt as an instance) were brought across the mountains from Fort Cumberland; then the frontier settlement. Now when the shriek of the locomotive is startling her native vallies, when plenty crowns the labors of the husbandman, where hundreds are hurriedly jostling each other in ….... the race of surrenders her soul to her God, and goeth forth to reap the great reward of a well spent life.    R.

Josh MOWERY ( -1879)

SIX MEN KILLED

How The Boiler Explosion at Dunbar Occurred and
Who The Victims Are

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.

Martha G. MOYER Stone  (1908-1980)

   The soft organ strains of her favorite hymns, "Nearer My God To Thee", gave comfort to the relatives and friends during the Tuesday, Dec 28, funeral services for Martha G. Moyer at the Barnette Funeral Home. A close friend of the Moyer family through three generations, Ruth Dunn presided at the organ.

   Speaking of Martha's love of music and her dedication to the former Second Presbyterian Church and its merger with the Trinity United Presbyterian Church, Miss Dunn said it was common knowledge that when Martha joined in the congregational singing, she didn't need to open a hymn book—she was familiar with every word of the hymnal. For years Martha was also a teacher of the Girls Friendly Bible School Class of the Second Church. "She was inspirational to all of us," Miss Dunn said and she became the "Mother Confessor" to ease the heartaches and offer advice when it was sought. Martha became the assistant teacher of The Trinity Adult Bible Class following the merger.

   And evidence that Martha's earthly good deeds spread far and wide came from many sources. One of these was a letter to "The Corner" following a previous article which spoke of Martha's good works. The note came from Lillian M. Jenne, 19633 Sagamore, Fairview Park, Ohio 44126. Mrs. Jenne's parents were the late Mr. & Mrs. Wes Wood, who had lived on Main Street in Uniontown. "Lill" Wood Jenne said in part, "I want to send my sincere thanks for the beautiful words so recently spoken of Martha. The day before she entered the hospital she sent me a copy of the article. We have been friends for more than 50 years. I am so happy you did such a wonderful thing for her. It did bring happiness to her and her loved ones and to her legion of friends.”

   Her strength failing after a prolonged illness and 68 days of hospitalization and major surgery, Martha succumbed in the Uniontown Hospital at 1:15 a.m. Sunday December 28. Funeral services were at the James D. Barnett Funeral Home. Officiating was Rev. Dr. Philip Maronde, Tuesday, December 30. Interment was in Oak Lawn Cemetery.

Russell MOYER ( -1939)

FOUR BLOWN TO BITS BY MINE GAS

Workmen Killed At Tower Hill Plant; Trio Barely Escape
Engaged in Dismantling Old Fan House
When Torches Set Off Pocket of Gas.

BODIES MANGLED
BY HEAVY BLAST

  UNIONTOWN, July 6— Four men were blown to pieces by an explosion of accumulated mine gas as they were dismantling, with the use of acetylene torches, the fan house at the abandoned Tower Hill No. 1 plant of Hecla Coal & Coke Company at 7:15 o’clock this morning. Three others, who only a few minutes before had walked from the scene, escaped a similar fate.

  The dead:
     Albert Basha, 56, of Fairbank.
     James Coddington, 30, of Amend.
     Russell Moyer, 21, of Uniontown.
     George Murray, 50, of Masontown.

   Basha, a wrecker, was tearing down the buildings at the Tower Hill plant and the other men were employed by him in razing the property. The four, killed instantly and their bodies blown to bits, were inside the fanhouse, dismantling it. They were using acetylene torches when there was an explosion. Authorities were inclined to believe mine gases had gathered under the farm house and were touched off by the open torches.

   It was only through a stroke of luck that three others’ including sons of the victims, escaped death. Just a short time before they had been sent for another tank of gas for the acetylene torch. They were on top of a hill about 150 yards away when the blast tore the tile fan house to pieces and sent fragments of the bodies in all directions.

   Those who escaped were George Murray, Jr., 21; Albert Basha, Jr., 15, and Francis Umbel, 21. The trio ran back to the scene to find the mangled bodies of the four victims, including fathers of two of them. The remains of Mr. Basha were found 100 yards away; those of Mr. Moyer flattened against a building 50 yards distant; those of Mr. Murray 100 yards to the west and those of Mr. Coddington 100 yards to the east in a nearby field.

   The body of Mr. Moyer was battered beyond recognition. The other bodies were mutilated but identification of faces was possible. The force of the explosion shattered windows in nearby dwellings and awakened persons who were still asleep. Coroner S. A. Baltz and other officers are making an investigation into the cause.

   Mr. Moyer was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Moyer of Morgantown road. He was a graduate of the South Union Township High School in the Class of 1936. For the last three years he had been employed by Mr. Basha. He is survived by his parents and three sisters, Mrs. Laverna Smith and Ellen and Annabell Moyer.

Begin Inquiry
Into Explosion
That Killed Four

Special to The Courier.

  UNIONTOWN, July 7— Official inquiry is being conducted into the four-death explosion at the Tower Hill No. 1 mine early Thursday morning. Mine officials gathered at the shaft and went over the situation most minutely in the presence of State Motor Police who are keeping a crowd of curious spectators back. It was estimated several thousand persons visited the scene Thursday. A barbed-wire barrier has been erected and watchmen were on duty all night. Removal of a four-inch ventilating pipe from the concrete seal over the abandoned air shaft was cited as probable cause of the devastating explosion which cost the lives of four men. Ten minutes after seven men had gone to work to dismantle the fan house at the abandoned workings of Hecla Coal & Coke Company, there was an explosion. Three of the group had only a few minutes before left the scene to get a tank of gas for the acetylene torch being used and thereby were saved a similar fate. Accumulated mine gas was believed to have been set off by the open acetylene torch and the explosion blew the quartet to bits.

   George Gladden Murray, one of four killed, was a son or the late I. J. and Jane Murray of Morgan Station and had resided there for number of years. He was a brother of Mrs. Robert R. Boyd of Morrell avenue, Connellsville, and for about 25 years had been located at Masontown. He was given the middle name of Gladden for the late Rev. William H. Gladden, who was pastor of the Hickory Square Methodist Church when Mr. Murray was born. He was twice married, his first wife, the former Ada Beatty of Broad Ford, preceding him in death. Later he married Sylvia Chain of Scottdale. Besides his wife and sister, Mrs. Boyd, he is survived by the following children: Oliver, Fairmont, W. Va.; Kenneth, Masontown; Alma Jean, Morgantown, W. Va.; Ruth, Robert, George, Jr., Kathleen, Dorothy, Charles and Gladden, at home.

   A double-funeral service for Albert Basha, 56, junk dealer of Fairbank, who had charge of the demolition of the property, and his brother-in-law, James Coddington, 30, of Amend, will be held Sunday afternoon. There will be a prayer for the two at the Basha home at 1:30 o'clock followed by full rites at the New Salem Christian Church with Rev. A. J. McCloy, pastor, officiating. Basha will be buried in Acklin Cemetery at Merrittstown and Coddington in Walnut Hill Cemetery near Uniontown. Basha is survived by his wife, Mrs. Estella Umbel Basha; six children, John, Elizabeth, Anna, Gladys, Roger and Albert, Jr., the last named being one of three who escaped death; a grandchild, a brother, Abe of Detroit, his parents, two sisters and two brothers. Coddington leaves his wife, Mrs. Lydia Umbel Coddington, and six-year-old son, James, Jr.

   The funeral service for Russell I. Moyer was held this afternoon charge of Rev. James C. Clark. Burial was made in Sylvan Heights Cemetery. A son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Moyer of Uniontown, he was a graduate of South Union Township High School with the Class of 1936 and had been employed by Basha for three years. He leaves his parents and three sisters.

William E. MOYER (1927-2009)

William E. Moyer
Lemont Furnace

William E. "Bud" Moyer, 82, of Lemont Furnace, passed on at his home, in the loving presence of his family, Wednesday, April 8, 2009. Bud was born Jan. 15, 1927, in Mt. Independence, Pa., a son of Andrew Curtis Moyer and Mary Matthews Moyer. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a daughter, Janet "Kim" Moyer Karschner MD; and a brother, George Curtis Moyer. He is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Frances Furin Moyer; daughter, Becky Wilcosky, her husband, Larry, and daughter, Brittany, of Uniontown; son, Ben Moyer and his wife, Kathy, of Farmington; brother, James K. Moyer and his wife, Althea, of Lemont Furnace; granddaughter, Colleen Moyer and her fiancé, Dale Davis Jr., of Smithfield; grandson, Aaron Moyer, of Slippery Rock; nieces, Zelda Moyer and Mona Collins, both of Lemont Furnace; and nephew, Jeffrey Moyer, of Wind Ridge, Pa. Bud graduated from North Union High School, class of 1944, and attended Waynesburg College. He served honorably with the Army, 20th Infantry Regiment, from 1945 to 1947, and was awarded the World War II Victory Medal and the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal. Upon his return home from the armed service, he enjoyed playing county league baseball and talked joyfully about the game and his fellow players until the end of his life. For many years, Bud, together with his brother, Jim, operated A. C. Moyer Company in Lemont Furnace. He was warmly esteemed by his many friends in the construction industry and in municipal government throughout Fayette, Greene and Washington counties. In earlier years, Bud also worked at Eureka Fire Brick Works in Mt. Braddock and the Appalachian Stone Division of Martin Marietta Corporation. Bud was always proud of his community and served it in many capacities. He served in the early 1950s on the North Union Township board of supervisors, was a charter member of the Uniontown Lions Club, a member of the Izaak Walton League, Uniontown Chapter, and served on the boards of directors of the Uniontown Savings and Loan and the Pleasant Valley Country Club. He also valued his membership in the American Society of Highway Engineers. Friends, neighbors, associates and family remember Bud for his warm friendly personality, his agile wit and his ready sense of humor. He looked forward every summer to cultivating his vegetable garden, the fruits of which he shared widely. He was especially fond of saving and trading seeds with neighbors and friends. Golf grew to be a favorite pastime of Bud's, but he always enjoyed the company of friends and family on the course more than an exemplary score. His approach to fishing and hunting, which he enjoyed throughout life, was the same. The number of fish, birds or deer collected was not Bud's object. Rather, he valued sharing outdoor experience with his son, daughters, grandson, granddaughter, brothers, in-laws and friends. Bud will be deeply missed, but joyfully remembered, by all who loved him and who knew his love, friendship and warmth in return. Friends will be received from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Friday and until 9:30 a.m. Saturday at the STEPHEN R. HAKY FUNERAL HOME, 603 N. Gallatin Ave. Extension, Uniontown.

Henry A. MUHLENBERG ( -1844)

From the Jefferson Democrat, Extra.
Death of Mr. Muhlenberg
READING, Sunday afternoon
August 11, 1844 – 5 o’clock, P. M.

   By an inscrutable dispensation of Divine Providence, one friend and fellow-citizen, HENRY A. MUHLENBERG has suddenly been removed from this life. But yesterday, he was mixing among the busy throngs of men, full of vigor and in a state of health, promising long years of honor and happiness to himself and of usefulness to society –today he is laid low in Death, and the places that have known him shall know him no more. We cannot speak of him now as we could wish. Our mind, distracted with the grief which pervades this whole community, is incapable of addressing to the people more than the simple announcement of their loss. The circumstances which attended this melancholy bereavement, are these: Several gentlemen from abroad had been passing the last evening with Mr. Muhlenberg, at his house, where they staid until probably about ten o’clock. When they left he accompanied them to the front door, at which after they were gone, he seated himself upon a chair, as was his custom to enjoy the coolness of the night breeze. Several gentlemen who passed between that and half-past ten or later, saw him sitting there. At about eleven he was found prostrate and insensible upon the step –with his head down, stricken with APOPLEXY. Every effort that medical skill could suggest was made-but in vain. He never spoke after he was discovered, but remained insensible until he expired, which was at four o’clock this afternoon.

She will be buried from her late home, North Pittsburgh street, this afternoon at 3 o’clock. Rev. J. A. Maxwell of McKeesport, the former pastor, and Rev. T. J. Edwards, the present pastor of the First Baptist Church, will officiate at the services. Mrs. Munson was the daughter of James and Hilda Collins, and was born in Connellsville in 1818. She became a member of the Baptist Church July 24, 1841, being baptized by Rev. Tisdale, the pastor of the church. At the time of her death she was the oldest member of the church, having belonged for 62 years. She was at the same time one of the most conscientious and faithful of its adherents. At one time during Mrs. Munson’s residence in West Newton the church became very feeble and in danger of dissolving. She returned to Connellsville to live, and promptly reorganized the Sunday School, and diffused some of her indomitable energy into the weaker spirits, and received the credit of saving the church. About 1850 she was married to Isaac Munson, a prominent business man of this vicinity. He was engaged first in the iron, then in the mercantile business, and gave up both to become manager of the Markle Paper Mill Company. Three sons were born to this union: John I., who died about eight years ago from injuries received in a runaway accident; George A. and James C., both residents of Connellsville. Mrs. Munson is also survived by a brother and sister, Rev. James M. Collins, a retired Baptist minister, and Mrs. Mary Reisinger, both of Uniontown. Mrs. Munson is spoken of by all who knew her as a most upright earnest and loving Christian woman. Since her fall four years ago, which injured her so much that she has virtually never walked since, she has borne her afflictions cheerfully, resigned to the will of the Master. She retained all her faculties to the end, and was delighted to have her friends come and sit with her for an hour and tell her of the busy world and the work of the church she loved so dearly, but in whose services she could no longer take an active part. Her departure leaves a void in many hearts that can never be filled but truly “God giveth His beloved sleep.”

Murphy-At Buda, Bureau co., Ill. Aug 8th, 1870. Bessie, wife of Geo. M. Murphey, aged 24 years, 4 months and 2_ days.
Morgantown papers please copy.
Rebecca Staurt Moreland, was born near Connellsville, Penna., March 18th? 18_6; was married to Geo. M. Murphey at Morgantown, Oct, 26th, 1869.
Four years ago she united with the Presbyterian Church, and has since shown herself an exemplary follower of Christ.
She found no church of her choice within reach of her western home, but expanded? firm determination a few days before her decease. of uniting with some branch of the Church Militant?, and living a life devoted to her God. Those who were constantly with her, know only of her love, kindness and cheerfulness, how she strove to make all around her happy, to make home a Heaven. She leaves a little babe never to feel a mother's love and care; a husband and home never more to be cheered by the smiles of Bessie; a mother less an affectionate daughter; sisters and brothers less a loving sister; the world less an earnest soldier of Christ, but the host triumphant has been strengthened.
Though she cannot come to us, yet with the same pole star and anchor, we can surely will o'er the tempestuous sea, of life and leanth? on those same golden shores.

Murder charges will be formally filed within the next several days as the result of the death of James Murphy, 29, Latrobe, at 11:15 o'clock Friday morning in Uniontown hospital from wounds inflicted during a fight Tuesday night at the West carnival on Reagan lot.
Donald Jones, negro cook for an Hawaiian group associated with the carnival, had been held in county jail since the affray in which he stabbed Murphy several times with a butcher knife, the instrument penetrating the bowels.
The trouble resulted at dinner time, Tuesday, when Murphy, already served two plates, demanded a third and was told by Jones he would have to "wait a while until serve the others here."  An argument ensued leading to blows during which Jones seized a butcher knife and lunged at his adversary.
County Detective John C. Wall, himself, recovering from a knifing last September 12 at the hands of Frank Monaghan, investigated the case and within the next several days, will file formal charges of murder against Jones.

MURPHY— April 3d, 1865, of Consumption, Mrs. MARTHA MURPHY, wife of David A. Murphy, of Fayette County, Pa. The deceased professed religion in early life and united with the M. E. Church. We visited the later during her illness and found her faith strong-evidence of her acceptance with God bright, and hope, which is an anchor sure and steadfast to the soul lighting her way through the valley and shadow of death. Her soul was calm in expectation of meeting her Savior beyond this vale of tears. As the body died the soul grew strong in the embrace even of death. Sister, thou art no more among men but gone to sit down with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. She died in the thirty first year of her age, proving the truth of inspiration that man is as the grass. We commend the loving, weeping, bereaved husband helpless children to Almighty God who is able to heal all our sorrow.

Fades the lovely blooming flower,
Smiling solace of an hour,
Soon our transient comforts fly,
Pleasure only blooms to die.

Lovely child how brief they stay,
Short and hasty was thy day,
Ending soon thy sojourn here,
Pain or grief no more to bear.

Hard it is from thee to part,
Though it sends our aching hearts,
Since an heir to glory has gone,
Let the will of God be done. COM.

Rebecca Stuart Moreland, was born near Connellsville, Penna., March 13, 1846, was married to Geo. M. Murphy at Morgantown, Oct. 26th, 1869. Four years ago she united with the Presbyterian Church, and has since shown herself an exemplary follower of Christ. She found no church of her choice within reach of her western home, but expressed a firm determination a few days before her decease, of uniting with some branch of the Church ____ and living a life devoted to her God. Those who were constantly with her, know only of her love, kindness and cheerfulness, how she strove to make all around her happy, to make home a Heaven. She leaves a little babe never to feel a mothers love and care; a husband and home never more to be cheered by the smiles of Bessie; a mother loss an affectionate daughter; sisters and brothers loss a loving sister; the world loss an earnest soldier of Christ, but the host triumphant has been strengthened.

Sarah B. MURPHY (1816-1869)

Died

  MURPHY— At her residence, Buda, Bureau county, Illinois, March 20, of Consumption, Mrs. SARAH B., widow of Maj. Jacob Murphy, aged 52 years, 11 months and 20 days. The deceased was born in Connellsville, Fayette county, Pa., April 8, 1816. She and three brothers were early deprived of their parents, and raised by kind relatives. In 1841 she married Jacob Murphy, and lived in Fayette county until the spring of 1865, when they removed to Bureau county, Ills. The fall of 1866, her husband was stricken down, the stroke laid heavy upon her, and just four years from the morning that she left her native home, she followed her loved companion to their immortal home. She leaves seven children to battle awhile yet with life’s turmoils, and meet two who passed on before her. At the age of fifteen she united with the Episcopal Church at New Haven, and ever afterward lived a consistent life therein. Though deprived of the church of her choice while in the west, yet she was no sectarian, and gave evidence that she was “a soldier of the cross.” She stood her sickness with Christian fortitude, and seemed resigned to God’s will. Sometime before her death, she selected the text and hymns to be used at her funeral, and after her eyes were sealed to mortal sight and speech almost failed replied to an inquiry, that she would rather die than live, and she saw her little angel daughter, and calmly slept away. One of her brothers lies in Arkansas, one in Kentucky, her children in Pennsylvania, and she peacefully sleeps beside the companion of her youth in the beautiful cemetery here. “They are waiting the resurrection.” M.

bullet Elijah & Hannah MURRAY died in 1885. His (or her) obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(55)

May 1885
Elijah Murray and his wife, Hannah, (Minerd), are both dead, leaving six or seven small children fatherless and motherless in this vale of tears. The mother, on the 13th day of May, at the age of 39 years, 11 months and 15 days, left a babe one day old. Her husband was lying with typhoid fever, and his bereavement in his low condition terminated in his death on the 28th, just eight days afterward. He had just passed his 4th milestone, being four weeks her senior in age.
The dual calamity is keenly felt in this community, and we can but commit the poor parentless orphans to the tender care of the Good Shepherd who tempers the bleak winds to the shorn lambs, and that they may find kind welcome into good households.
Food, clothing and shelter is the Savior's injunction. The two funerals were largely attended by a large and sympathetic concourse of people.
The remains were interred in the United Brethren Cemetery at Springfield (Normalville) to await the resurrection of the just.
Note: Elijah was the son of John and Elizabeth Miller Murray. Hannah was the daughter of John and Sarah Ansel Miner).
(Note: Children were Perry, Agnes, Amy Rachel/Emma, Marcellus, Ida, George, Lucy Hannah. Ida and Lucy were adopted by Richard and Mary Jane Murray).

FOUR BLOWN TO BITS BY MINE GAS

Workmen Killed At Tower Hill Plant; Trio Barely Escape
Engaged in Dismantling Old Fan House
When Torches Set Off Pocket of Gas.

BODIES MANGLED
BY HEAVY BLAST

  UNIONTOWN, July 6— Four men were blown to pieces by an explosion of accumulated mine gas as they were dismantling, with the use of acetylene torches, the fan house at the abandoned Tower Hill No. 1 plant of Hecla Coal & Coke Company at 7:15 o’clock this morning. Three others, who only a few minutes before had walked from the scene, escaped a similar fate.

  The dead:
     Albert Basha, 56, of Fairbank.
     James Coddington, 30, of Amend.
     Russell Moyer, 21, of Uniontown.
     George Murray, 50, of Masontown.

   Basha, a wrecker, was tearing down the buildings at the Tower Hill plant and the other men were employed by him in razing the property. The four, killed instantly and their bodies blown to bits, were inside the fanhouse, dismantling it. They were using acetylene torches when there was an explosion. Authorities were inclined to believe mine gases had gathered under the farm house and were touched off by the open torches.

   It was only through a stroke of luck that three others’ including sons of the victims, escaped death. Just a short time before they had been sent for another tank of gas for the acetylene torch. They were on top of a hill about 150 yards away when the blast tore the tile fan house to pieces and sent fragments of the bodies in all directions.

   Those who escaped were George Murray, Jr., 21; Albert Basha, Jr., 15, and Francis Umbel, 21. The trio ran back to the scene to find the mangled bodies of the four victims, including fathers of two of them. The remains of Mr. Basha were found 100 yards away; those of Mr. Moyer flattened against a building 50 yards distant; those of Mr. Murray 100 yards to the west and those of Mr. Coddington 100 yards to the east in a nearby field.

   The body of Mr. Moyer was battered beyond recognition. The other bodies were mutilated but identification of faces was possible. The force of the explosion shattered windows in nearby dwellings and awakened persons who were still asleep. Coroner S. A. Baltz and other officers are making an investigation into the cause.

   Mr. Moyer was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Moyer of Morgantown road. He was a graduate of the South Union Township High School in the Class of 1936. For the last three years he had been employed by Mr. Basha. He is survived by his parents and three sisters, Mrs. Laverna Smith and Ellen and Annabell Moyer.

Begin Inquiry
Into Explosion
That Killed Four

Special to The Courier.

  UNIONTOWN, July 7— Official inquiry is being conducted into the four-death explosion at the Tower Hill No. 1 mine early Thursday morning. Mine officials gathered at the shaft and went over the situation most minutely in the presence of State Motor Police who are keeping a crowd of curious spectators back. It was estimated several thousand persons visited the scene Thursday. A barbed-wire barrier has been erected and watchmen were on duty all night. Removal of a four-inch ventilating pipe from the concrete seal over the abandoned air shaft was cited as probable cause of the devastating explosion which cost the lives of four men. Ten minutes after seven men had gone to work to dismantle the fan house at the abandoned workings of Hecla Coal & Coke Company, there was an explosion. Three of the group had only a few minutes before left the scene to get a tank of gas for the acetylene torch being used and thereby were saved a similar fate. Accumulated mine gas was believed to have been set off by the open acetylene torch and the explosion blew the quartet to bits.

   George Gladden Murray, one of four killed, was a son or the late I. J. and Jane Murray of Morgan Station and had resided there for number of years. He was a brother of Mrs. Robert R. Boyd of Morrell avenue, Connellsville, and for about 25 years had been located at Masontown. He was given the middle name of Gladden for the late Rev. William H. Gladden, who was pastor of the Hickory Square Methodist Church when Mr. Murray was born. He was twice married, his first wife, the former Ada Beatty of Broad Ford, preceding him in death. Later he married Sylvia Chain of Scottdale. Besides his wife and sister, Mrs. Boyd, he is survived by the following children: Oliver, Fairmont, W. Va.; Kenneth, Masontown; Alma Jean, Morgantown, W. Va.; Ruth, Robert, George, Jr., Kathleen, Dorothy, Charles and Gladden, at home.

   A double-funeral service for Albert Basha, 56, junk dealer of Fairbank, who had charge of the demolition of the property, and his brother-in-law, James Coddington, 30, of Amend, will be held Sunday afternoon. There will be a prayer for the two at the Basha home at 1:30 o'clock followed by full rites at the New Salem Christian Church with Rev. A. J. McCloy, pastor, officiating. Basha will be buried in Acklin Cemetery at Merrittstown and Coddington in Walnut Hill Cemetery near Uniontown. Basha is survived by his wife, Mrs. Estella Umbel Basha; six children, John, Elizabeth, Anna, Gladys, Roger and Albert, Jr., the last named being one of three who escaped death; a grandchild, a brother, Abe of Detroit, his parents, two sisters and two brothers. Coddington leaves his wife, Mrs. Lydia Umbel Coddington, and six-year-old son, James, Jr.

   The funeral service for Russell I. Moyer was held this afternoon charge of Rev. James C. Clark. Burial was made in Sylvan Heights Cemetery. A son of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Moyer of Uniontown, he was a graduate of South Union Township High School with the Class of 1936 and had been employed by Basha for three years. He leaves his parents and three sisters.

AG Bus Crash
1 Child Is Dead,
29 Hurt

   PhotoPhoto  Shock, grief and some anger hang over the Lake Lynn and Nilan areas this morning in the wake of a tragic school bus accident which claimed the life of a Lake Lynn girl. The mishap occurred on a legislative route in Springhill Twp. in a rural area about two miles east of the Point Marion bridge yesterday afternoon about 4:30.

   Agnes Strosnider, 11, was pronounced dead at the scene by deputy coroner Richard Herod at 5:20 p.m. Herod said the child suffered a fractured skull and multiple head injuries and possibly a fractured neck. Herod aid the girl probably died on impact.

   Emergency vehicles rushed 29 other persons including the bus driver to the West Virginia University Hospital in Morgantown and Uniontown Hospital. The driver of the bus, Raymond Gerald Murray, 34, of Smithfield R. D. 3, was reported in fair condition in Uniontown Hospital last night. All but three of the other injured children were treated and released. The students were all from the Friendship Hill Elementary School. Uniontown State Police, who are investigating the accident told the Herald-Standard last night the bus was traveling east when the accident occurred. Police said the bus went down a slight grade but failed to negotiate a 90 degree right turn. The bus struck a B&O railroad overpass abutment head-on. Police said the bus attempted to stop but was unable to do so. It was snowing lightly at the time of the accident and the roadway was dry and ash-covered according to troopers at the scene. Troopers also said there will be further investigation of the bus and the vehicle will be “torn apart” probably by the State Police garage investigator to try to determine if there was mechanical difficulty in either the steering system or brake system or elsewhere. There will also be a coroner’s inquest into the mishap. Meanwhile, emergency vehicles rushed to the scene following the accident including State Police, Point Marion Vol. Fire Dept., both on and off duty Point Marion Borough Policemen and ambulances from Bobtown and Smithfield. The injured were helped out of the bus by the bus driver and a nearby resident who was identified as William Bair.

   Most of the injured were taken to the Blair residence while some children reportedly ran home. Those students admitted to the Morgantown hospital were identified as Viola McClain, 12, and Kim Strosnider, 6, both of Lake Lynn. Both were reported in fair condition last night. Meanwhile, six-year-old Jennie White Summerfield of Point Marion was reported in fair condition last night in Uniontown Hospital. Uniontown Hospital identified the students who were treated and realesed as Sheila Huffine; 10, Deanne Huffine; 9, Victoria Johnson, 7; Delores Stewart, 8; Donna Jo Crites, 7; Michael Sapp, 7; and John Sapp, Jr., 8, all of Lake Lynn and nine-year-old Sonya Pruitt of Point Marion. The Sapp boys are brothers and the Huffine children are sisters, according to the hospital. The Morgantown hospital gave the identities of the children treated there but could give no information on the ages, addresses or relationship of the youngsters. They were, Alcesta Wade, Charles Wade, Ricky Ruble, Samantha Strosnider, Annette Strosnider, Jerry Cobb, Joyce Stewart, James Stewart, William Stewart, Diane Diehl, Carol Strosnider, Robert McClain, Beverly Morland, and Norma Stewart. Carol and Samantha Strosnider are sisters of the victim. Meanwhile, the bus itself, owned by the Dundard and Springhill Bus Co. of Point Marion was totally demolished. State Police estimated the loss at $2,500. State Police and Point Marion officials tried to keep some order at the scene for the roadway to be clear for ambulances.

   Ambulances from Point Marion, McClellandtown and Uniontown were also called to the scene but the injured had already been transported to the hospitals by the other ambulances, according to some reports, and private vehicles. The force of the impact reportedly torn several seats loose and moved the bus forward about two feet off the frame. The victim was found on the left side of the bus about six feet from the front. No date has been set for the coroner’s inquest which will be held at the office of Fayette County Coroner Dr. W. Ralston McGee in Uniontown.

   Agnes Strosnider was a fifth grade student at the school and a member of the Nilan Apostolic Church. She is survived by her parents, Calvin and Betty Chipps Strosnider; four brothers, Jack, Calvin, Jr., Frank and Heath, all at home; and four sisters, Cathy, Samantha, Brenda, and Carol, all at home. Friends will be received at the Richard Herod Funeral Home in Point Marion after 7 o’clock tonight. Funeral arrangements were incomplete last night.

   Albert Gallatin Area School District Superintendent George Plava last night expressed shock and sympathy. “The administration and the school board are deeply shocked,” he said. “The death of Agnes and the injuries to the others have been felt and we express our sympathy to the children and the families.” Plava went on to say “safety is always a matter of deep concern.” He pointed out the district transports about 5,500 students a day and the 36 busses log over 2,900 miles a day. “It only takes one such accident to make us realize now fortunate we have been in the past years,” he said. Plava also said in all his 23 years as an administrator he couldn’t recall any other serious mishaps although he said there have been some minor ones. Plava added the Friendship Elementary School instructs children in kindergarten through sixth grade.

   Louis Rudolph, a Point Marion funeral director, owns the bus involved in the mishap and has operated the business but the past two years. Previous to that, according to Mr. Rudolph, the bus lines has serviced school districts in the area for about 30 years. Rudolph told the Herald-Standard last night the 1966 had had not previous record of trouble and had been inspected in January. Rudolph said the driver, Mr. Murray, has been with the company for about two years and is a regular driver and mechanic. Rudolph also said this was the first mishap the lines has had since he took over and the first one that he personally knew of. According to the Point Marion resident, the bus has a capacity of 66 passengers and as far as he knew, there were between 35 to 40 children in the vehicle at the time of the mishap. Rudolph was at the scene of the accident but said he didn’t know what went wrong and wouldn’t know until the bus was inspected by State Police this morning.

   Murray’s actions had been praised by a resident of the area following the crash. Mrs. William Bair, who lives 150 feet from where the bus hit the abutment, said, “He was white as a sheet and injured himself, but he still helped get the children off. He carried them from the bus and handed them to Mr. Bair.” He has been listed in fair condition until taking a turn for the worse this morning. Three other children remained hospitalized this morning. Jennie White Summerfield, 6, of Point Marion, was in good condition in Uniontown Hospital with a fractured right arm and leg.

Bus Crash Info Studied

   A fact-finding phase of the investigation of the bus crash that claimed two lives and injured 28 others has apparently been completed, but the results of the study will not be disclosed until all the clues haven been put together. State Police and a private firm of technical experts that has a government contract have been stockpiling information since the Monday accident near Point Marion. The information will now be gone over with the greatest scrutiny to determine the exact cause of the mishap, in which the vehicle slammed into a bridge abutment. The investigating team has disassembled the bus in an attempt to discover the working condition of the brakes, which according to the driver, Raymond Murray, failed going around a curve.

   The 34-year-old Murray, of Smithfield, R. D. 3, died Wednesday of internal injuries. Also a victim of the crash was 11-year- old Agnes Strosnider of Lake Lynn, who was killed instantly. In addition to the mechanics of the bus, investigators have amassed pictures of the crash scene and have also made several return visits to check even the most minute clue that would have a bearing on the cause of the accident. The results of the study are expected shortly.

   Funeral services for the Strosnider girl, a student at Friendship Hill Elementary School, were held yesterday. Services for Murray, who is married and the father of three, will be held Saturday.

   Meanwhile, two other students, Viola McClain, 12, and Kim Strosnider, 6, remained in satisfactory condition in West Virginia University Hospital in Morgantown.

AG Area Crash
Brakes On Bus
Blamed

   Mechanical failure was ruled as the cause of the school bus crash which claimed two lives and resulted in injuries to 28 passengers near Nilan in Springhill Twp. on Feb. 26. An examination of the bus by State Police and federal authorities determined that the vehicle’s brake system malfunctioned causing the vehicle to slam into the concrete wall at an underpass of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. The bus was descending a slight grade and was unable to negotiate a 90- degree right turn into the tunnel. Impact moved the bus body about two feet forward on the chassis. The crash occurred about 4:30 p.m. as the us was taking students home from Friendship Hill Elementary School near New Geneva in the Albert Gallatin School District.

   Eleven-year-old Agnes Strosnider of Lake Lynn was killed in the crash. Raymond G. Murray, 34, of Smithfield R. D. 3, driver of the bus sustained multiple injuries and was admitted to the Uniontown Hospital where he died on Feb. 28. Mr. Murray’s efforts to aid children injured in the mishap were praised by a resident of the area, William Bair. Murray carried the injured children from the bus and handed them to Mr. Bair who carried them to his home. Mr. Bair’s white frame home became a first aid station to aid the victims until ambulances arrived to transport them to the Uniontown Hospital and the University Hospital in Morgantown, W. Va. All but two of the children were released following treatment. The bus was owned by the D. & S. Bus Lines and was under contract to the Albert Gallatin Area School system.
