Jonathan PAGE died in 1901. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(125)
AN OLD SETTLER GONE -Jonathan Page was born in Fayette county, Penn., Jan. 13, 1824, and died at his home in Lostant, Ill, at 1:10 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, 1901. At the age of twenty-two years he was united in marriage to Eleanor Layton, July 3, 1845. To this union were born seven children - five sons and two daughters - one having died in infancy. Three sons - William T. of Lostant, Geo. C. of Chicago, Philip K. of Connellsville, Penn., and two daughters, Mrs. Marian G. Hull, of Chicago and Mrs. Cora A. Hannum of Lostant - with the bereaved mother and wife remain to mourn the death of an affectionate father and devoted husband. Funeral services were held at the late home of the deceased on Sunday afternoon at two o'clock. Rev. J. T. Bliss officiated and gave words of consolation and comfort from the text "O death, where is thy sting; O grave, where is thy victory?" He spoke in high praise of the many virtues of the departed. Bro. Page was converted in Pennsylvania when a young man and joined the M. E. church of which he remained a consistent member ever since. His life was replete with sunshine and kindness. He often said to me by way of confession for his absence from church, "I am sorry I cannot come."
While his last days on earth were days of bitter suffering, yet he rejoiced in a hope unspeakable and full of glory. He spent his waking moments in prayer and praise until consciousness had become extinct. Rev. Bliss remarked, "I first met him in the Masonic order, with which body he was always in love. As a token of his esteem for his brethren he wanted them to perform the last kind act of interment of his body. He was made a Mason in the year 1870 in Lostant lodge No. 579. He has gone to his reward. He had his own pass for admittance; his faith was untarnished; his hope well founded and he followed his guide to the Worshipful Master on High for further instructions in the fields of glory. Among the relatives from a distance in attendance at the funeral were Mrs. M. G. Hull of Chicago, Mr. and Mrs. Cal Kreider and Mrs. Mary Conaway of Tonica. Other relatives were prevented from coming on account of the weather and for other unavoidable reasons. The funeral services were very largely attended by old neighbors and friends and sixty or mores Masonic brethren from Magnolia, Tonica and Lostant took part in their beautiful burial service. A quartet from the M. E. choir sang "Rock of Ages," "Jesus, Lover of My Soul" and "Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me." Lovely flowers adorned the casket, notable among them being a Masonic emblem and a pillow with "father" in purple immortelles. Interment was made in Hope cemetery at Lostant, Ill. He had a twin brother who died about five years ago and for whom he grieved very much.

John PALOTTA Jr. died in 1937. His obit was contributed to the Fayette County USGenWeb Project.(2)
Believed to have been seized by cramps, 14-year-old John Palotta, Jr., of La Belle, drowned shortly after noon Monday in the Monongahela river about one-half mile from his home, after a home-made canoe, in which he was riding, overturned in mid-stream.
Horrified companions continued to drive for the body which was not brought to the surface until 10 hours later after employes of Maxwell mine dragged the river in that vicinity with grappling hooks.
The lad, with several other youths, went to the river to escape the intense heat. Palotta, it was said, drew away from the others as he endeavored to swim from the deepest part of the river. Suddenly, he sank from sight, apparently the victim of cramps.
His companions dived in fruitless efforts to find the victim. An alarm was sounded and employes of Maxwell mine hurried to the scene and continued to drag the river until 10 o'clock last night when the body was finally brought to the surface.
Deputy Coroner Arley Kisinger viewed the body.

HENRY L. PATTERSON
Henry Lane Patterson, aged 82 years, seven months and 14 days, died at the home of a son, Clark Patterson, in North Union township, along the old Connellsville road, Wednesday morning, August 19, 1931, at 7:35 o'clock.

Died January 18th, 1868, by drowning, having broken through the ice while skating on the Monongahela river at Webster, Westmoreland county, Pa., J. RUSSELL, son of Alfred and Caroline Whiteley Patterson of Allegheny City, Pa., aged twenty-two years and three months. None but those who have experienced similar trials can appreciate the fearful severity of this application upon surviving relatives and friends. Engaged since September last in the coal business at Webster, he was surrounded by comparative strangers, and at the time of the accident seems to have been without even a companion. In the full tide of an unusually vigorous life, the arrow that flieth by noonday is winging its fatal way. One crash beneath his feet and the icy floods enshroud him as with a pall, and chill the struggling limbs into the stillness of death. Never was a young man more liberally endowed with the courage and energy which make men rise above the common level. His deportment in worldly affairs was admirable, and although his years numbered scarcely half of those of most of his business associates, yet his ability won the highest commendation from them and from all who came in contact with him. His faults were those of a hot-tempered, high minded youth, forgiven by every one sooner than by himself. Remarkably firm in his convictions as well as his purposes, his pious education had made indelible impressions upon him, which in the mature thought of riper years, would undoubtedly have led him openly to acknowledge that Saviour whose precepts, a powerful memory was ever presenting before him in the loving language of a mother’s gentle teachings. Who shall deny the power of an Almighty God to accomplish in a moment the work of a lifetime. It is the same covenant-keeping God who has said to his people “Call upon me and I will answer,” who has taken from among us in his own good time, a child of many prayers, one often borne to the throne of Grace upon the hearts of those whose faith is fixed upon Christ like a rock, and whose very souls were bound up in the boy. Mortal dares not say that our Heavenly Father has wounded his creatures so nearly to death except in the exercise of the most perfect wisdom and mercy. How deeply he was twined in the hearts of those who loved him was never realized until that horror-burdened moment when it was flashed upon them that Death had struck him. It seemed as if it could not be. Affection refused to give him up and reason failed for a time, to force a belief in his fate. As the wail of woe dies away to the cadences of sorrow, how sweetly comes the hope that the memories of affection immortal as the Spirit itself, clustering in Time, round his grave will be exchanged for the perfect happiness of meeting him with the redeemed, in the Eternity, “beyond the clouds and beyond the tomb” “Hear Lord in Heaven they dwelling place,” and make us holier for this great grief.

Found shot to death along the highway near the Buena Vista school house, a short distance from Flatwoods at daybreak Thursday morning, Arnold Pegg, aged 29, of Keisterville, is believed to have been shot while in the act of robbing the chicken coop of Phillip Smith, a farmer. Workmen passing that way shortly after daybreak say they discovered the lifeless body in the road and lifted it to one side out of the path of traffic. Nearby was picked up a burlap sack containing four chickens whose heads had been wrung off and even closer to the body was an iron bar. At the door of the chicken coop was found a .32 caliber revolver. Smith fired from a .38 caliber weapon. Smith said he was awakened about 2 o’clock Thursday morning by a noise in the vicinity of his chicken coop. When he peered out the window and saw the door of his coop standing open, he fired two shots at random from a revolver. He heard a noise of persons running up the road and went back to sleep, giving the incident little more thought.
When the body, with the headless chickens and the revolver were found, Smith recited the story of the shooting to County Detectives A. A. Downing and William T. Walker, Coroner S. A. Baltz and State Police, who were on the scene within a short time. The bullet entered the tip of the left shoulder and took a downward course, lodging in the muscles of the heart. Pegg wore a light sweater and light trousers.
Smith was released on his own recognizance to await the action of the coroner’s jury after officers mad a complete investigation of the facts. “I fired in the direction of the chicken coop door” declared the elderly farmer. Convinced that he man was protecting his own property, officers made no attempt to follow prosecutions, satisfied that any future action could await an inquest.
Pegg is survived by his father, Louis Pegg, three brothers and two sisters, all of Keisterville, Walter, Eugene, James and Julia Pegg, and Mrs. W. C. Litten. Funeral services will be conducted Saturday afternoon at the Pegg home in Keisterville by the Rev. Bryce, pastor of the M. E. Church. Burial will be in the Percy cemetery under the direction of Funeral Director R. Clayton Whetsel.

No blame was attached to Philip N. Smith, a Buena Vista farmer, for the fatal shooting of Arnold Pegg.

The coroner’s jury conducting an inquest into the tragic death of Mrs. Edith Pegg of Uniontown, Monday evening, which resulted when she was struck by an automobile, ordered that Clinton Winston, a Uniontown negro, be held on a charge of murder to await the action of the grand jury. The evidence that the negro driving a large green Packard roadster, had driven madly down Main street, Uniontown at 6:30 just about the time of the accident, and that a similar car had run down and killed Mrs. Pegg, resulted in the verdict of the jury.
Motion for binding instructions to this jury to return a verdict of acquittal in favor of Clinton Winston, young colored chauffeur for George Whyel, on a charge of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of Mrs. Edith Pegg, October 27th last, on West Main Street, near the corner of Fayette and Mt. Vernon avenue, was refused by the court at the conclusion of the Commonwealth testimony yesterday. The motion was heard principally on the grounds that two of the Commonwealth witnesses had testified that they saw Winston driving the green Packard twin six roadster of the Whyel’s at or about six o’clock while the accident was described by other witnesses as happening at twenty minutes after six.
Patrolman Harry Chaney and “Tip” Hankins, both on the witness stand, declared that they were standing on the corner of Fayette and Main streets and they saw Winston in the Twin Six come travelling through at about 6:20. Hankins says he looked at his watch and it was exactly 6:20. Chaney testified that it was between 6:20 and 6:30 as shortly after the accident he went to his box on the corner and called in for the 6:30 call.
Former Chief of Police John C. Wall and Patrolman Charles Mallick testified that when Winston was brought to the police station he had been drinking and was partly under the influence of liquor. Mont W. McCormick said he was standing talking to two men near the Titlow hotel when he saw the Whyel car, with Winston driving; pass him at a fast gait at about six o’clock.
A feature of the case was the testimony of Richard Barton, proprietor of Barton’s Flower Shop, who told his story to the jury by telephone. Mr. Barton has just returned from Uniontown hospital where he has been a patient for several weeks and he was unable to be in court. He said that Winston stopped at his place of business in Main street shortly before six o’clock and ordered a bouquet of flowers and had the bill charged to the Whyel’s.
Winston was the first witness called for the defense. The colored boy testified that he had worked for George Whyel and the family for some time and that his mother was the family cook since 1916. On October 27 last he said he took Sarah Hager to her home in the East end and then stopped in Barton’s to procure the flowers which had been ordered by Miss Virginia Whyel. He admitted driving the green car along Main street but insisted that he passed the spot where the accident occurred at about six o’clock that night, fully twenty minutes before the tragedy. After the accident he said he went to Grant street to see a friend and was coming back home to het his supper when the police halted him at the corner of Main and Fayette street and place him under arrest. The defense planned to introduce the records at the police station to contradict the two officers who testified that Winston had been drinking. The records will show, the defense asserted, that Winston was not charged with any offense that night.
Body of article is missing.

DIED— On Monday morning last, at the Hotel of A. McClelland, of Bilious Remittent Fever, ROBERT C. PENDELETON of Caroline county, Virginia, aged 28 years. The individual whose death is here recorded, had been on a journey to the south-west, and had reached this place on the way to his father’s residence, after an absence of six months, when the disease, of which the seeds had been for some time lurking in his system, compelled him to discontinue his journey. He arrived here on the night of the 17th inst. Medical aid was immediately obtained. The utmost attention was paid to him by all who knew his situation. The gentlemanly manners and kind disposition which characterized the deceased during the whole period of his illness, endeared him to those who watched around his bed. His very respectable parents, relatives, and friends, who may see this small tribute to his memory, can have the consolation to know, that, although he died, a stranger in a strange land, unwatched by the tender eye of parent, sister, or brother, yet he received all the kind offices which are so grateful to one in his distressed situation. His remains, were decently interred in the Presbyterian grave yard, adjoining our town, followed by a numerous train of respectable citizens. Peace be to his ashes. M
