DEAN G. WAGNER

   Dean G. Wagner, 66, a former resident of Uniontown, died at midnight Sunday at his family home at 232 South Prospect street, Connellsville. Death was attributed to complications.

He was an officer in the fire company. In 1914 he moved to Connellsville where he resided until death. He was an employee of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad at Connellsville.

The Morning Herald, Uniontown, PA, Tuesday, August 16, 1938, page 2, column 3


   Death slipped into a South Prospect home at the hour of midnight Sunday, removing another of the Baltimore & Ohio veterans, Dean G. Wagner. It was a coincidence that Mr. Wagner was born on a Sunday at noon and died on the Lord’s Day 66 years later. Among the mourners at his passing is his mother, Jrs. Jane Wagner – 89 years old. The name of D. G. Wagner has been a familiar one here for a quarter of a century. The roundhouse fire threw him out of a job there, but he later became fire marshal for the company.

Death occurred at his residence, 703 Fifth Street. Mr. Wagner was first stricken early this summer while on a vacation trip in Michigan. Following a stay in a hospital there he returned home.

   Lloyd Wagner was born in Charleroi, May 3, 1891, the son of George and Della Bateman Wagner. He was educated in Charleroi schools, graduated in 1908, and from Allegheny Preparatory School in 1909. He attended Allegheny College and upon leaving college in 1915 engaged with his father in the ice cream business here. When this firm was sold, he retained an interest and became manager of the Rieck-McJunkin Dairy branch which took over the Wagner firm.

   The following tribute was paid Lloyd G. Wagner in the weekly bulletin of the Rotary Club:

LLOYD G. WAGNER

   Again our club has suffered the loss of a good and faithful member. Lloyd Wagner was so engendered of so many things that were good, one hesitates to put down in cold print a tribute to his name and character. His character took shape under the hand of a genteel mother and a practical and thoughtful father. He was constantly fused with the high fire of ambition and purpose. On him there was no shoddy veneer. He was a man’s man. He will live among us indefinitely.

   He was public-spirited as his past works show; he gave himself unsparingly to community work in that long period when he was one among us in our daily tasks. He was an observant and kindly employer. He had drive, to think was to act. He had conviction. He had courage. He believed in Rotary. Rotarians all, we believed in him.

   To the members of his family, we extend our sincere sympathy. The heritage of memory which Lloyd has left us will continue to be our happiest inspiration, though grief has cast its shadow upon this family and the club.

Mr. and Mrs. Wall were married October 26, 1928, in Holy Trinity church, Connellsville.  In 1930, when her husband became chief of police of Connellsville, they established their home in that city where they resided until he became chief Fayette county detective and transferred their residence to Uniontown.
Mr. Wall was the victim of a knife attack by Frank C. Monaghan on the night of September 11, last.
Mrs. Wall was a graduate of Douglas Business College and a member of St. Mary's R.C. church and of Connellsville Catholic Daughters of America.

Ephraim WALTERS ( -1865)

DEATHS

  WALTERS— At his residence in German tp., Fayette County, Pa., of paralysis, on the 17th day of April, 1865, EPHRAIM WALTERS, Esq., aged 88 years and 11 months. The deceased was the son of Ephraim Walters who was one of the very first settlers of Fayette County, and who lived to the great age of 98 years. The elder Walters fought through the Revolutionary War, and obtained a tomahawk right for the farm on which he was married, raised his children and died, by marking the lines with his own axe; and after a life of uninterrupted health, quietly went to sleep among the fathers leaving a large and respectable property. Ephraim Walters was born on the 11th of May 1776, when the sun of liberty was first dawning through the storms of Revolution upon the Colonies, lived contemporary with the Constitution, and expired when the country was in eternal darkness which threatened to overwhelm us. He was twice married: first to Miss Elizabeth Ache, by whom he had four children, viz: Dr. Jefferson Walters of Dayton Ohio, Ephraim Walters, Jr., Mrs. Debolt and Mrs. Hibbs of this County. His second wife was the widow of the late Dr. David B. Rhoads, and daughter of Rep. Christian Tarr, an early member of Congress from Western Pennsylvania. He survived her. Mr. Walters was a frank, candid gentleman of the most unblemished moral character of the old school, and of strict integrity. He was a Christian of devoted piety, who implicitly obeyed his precepts of the gospel, trusted with unwavering faith in the promises of God and was for many years a member of the German Baptist or Tunker Church. This is perhaps the highest tribute which could be paid to his worth, that within sight of his birth place he ascended on high, loved and respected whilst living, and deeply mourned is death by all who knew him.    COM.

EWING WALTERS
BELIEVED DYING OF GUN WOUND

Prominent Masontown District Resident in
Uniontown Hospital in
Critical Condition

WIFE SUMMONS AID

   Ewing B. Walters, aged 55 years, prominent resident of Sandy Bottom, near Masontown, is in the Uniontown Hospital in a critical condition as a result of a .22 caliber bullet wound in his forehead. Virtually no hope was held by hospital attaches early this morning for his recovery. Mrs. Walters, who discovered her husband lying on the floor of the parlor of their home, rendered immediate first aid and then dashed more than a mile to a telephone to summon medical assistance. The shooting occurred about 2 o’clock.

   Circumstances surrounding the shooting are undetermined although Mr. Walters, it is reported, had been somewhat despondent for a time and it is feared that he attempted suicide. It is also believed that he had become affected as a result of the heat. He and Mrs. Walters had returned home a short time before the shooting and Mrs. Walters had gone into another part of the house, it is reported, to conceal a shotgun about which Mr. Walters had inquired. A few minutes later she heard a shot and rushed into the parlor of their home where she found her husband lying in a pool of blood caused by a bullet from a rifle. She rendered what first aid she could and then dashed to a neighbor’s home a mile away to a telephone and summoned medical assistance. Mr. Walters was rushed to the hospital. Mr. Walters has been a life-long resident of the Masontown district and is one of the most widely and favorably known residents of that region.

Robert WALTERS ( -1869)

Death of a Soldier’s Orphan

   An inmate of the Orphan School by the name of Robert Walters, died on Sabbath noon. We hear his disease was inflammation of the bowels. His remains were followed to the grave in the Cemetery, on Tuesday afternoon by a large number of his former brother students. The deceased was from about the Soda Works, Allegheny county, and was about thirteen years of age. It is a remarkable fact that this is the second death that has occurred in this school of about 140 scholars since its commencement, going on four years, speaking volumes in favor of the healthfulness of this locality and of the great care taken of the health of these orphan children.

THREE DISTRICT
RESIDENTS DIE
IN OHIO CRASH

   Two brothers and a cousin, all district residents, were killed early Sunday morning in an automobile accident near Cadiz, Ohio. The car collided head-on with a loaded cattle truck on State Route 250, 18 miles east of Cadiz.
  The dead are:
   Walter Warnick, 25, of Smithfield, R. D. 2.
   Robert Warnick, 28, of Smithfield, R. D. 2.
   Raymond Warnick, 33, of Dunbar.

   Accidental death verdicts were returned by Coroner L. S. Mikesell of Harrison county, Ohio, who listed Robert Warnick as the probable driver of the car. It is reported that the Warnick automobile sideswiped a Michigan car and then crashed into the double-decked tractor-trailer loaded with 78 calves and 125 sheep. Impact of the collision reportedly sent the tractor several feet in the air. The truck driver, William O'Day of Pittsburgh, told authorities there the tractor-trailer dragged the auto approximately 35 feet before it came to a halt. O'Day was not reported injured. The crash occurred at 3 o'clock Sunday morning while O'Day was traveling east and the Warnicks enroute to visit the parents of Robert and Walter in Barberton, Ohio, were headed west. An Ohio official described the wreck the "worst" he had ever investigated. The Warnick car was demolished. Damage to the tractor-trailer was estimate at about $500 by police.

   The body of Raymond Warnick was taken to the Burhans funeral home at Dunbar, where the service will be held Wednesday afternoon with Rev. Brooks N. Henry, pastor of the Baptist Church at Dunbar, officiating. Interment will be in Franklin Cemetery, Dunbar, with military rites at the grave in charge of Hughes Post, American Legion of Dunbar.

Archibald WASHINGTON (1783-1818)

John H. WASHINGTON (1780-1818)

IN THE FILTH OF A COW YARD.

Where the Bones of the Washington Family Lie Buried at Brownsville.

BROWNSVILLE, November 27th.— That the bones of any of the immortal Washington family should ever mingle with the filth of an Englishman's cow stable is an idea sufficiently startling to almost cause a sensation in the deserted halls of Mt. Vernon. Yet, such a state of affairs exists. On the property of J. W. Jeffries, in the yard of a cow stable in this town, is the obscure and forgotten resting place of two of George Washington's nephews. On the sandstone slab covering one of the graves is the inscription:

In Memory of
ARCHIBALD WASHINGTON,
A NATIVE OF VIRGINIA,
was born in the county
of Southhampton the 2nd
of Febry A. D. 1783 & dep
this life the 10th of Apr
1818.

   On the other two can be faintly seen these inscriptions:

In Memory of
JOHN H. WASHINGTON,
A NATIVE OF VIRGINIA,
was born in the county
of Southhampton the 8
of June, A. D. 1780 & dep.
this life the 13th of Apr
1818.

In Memory of
EDWARD B. MACHEN,
who died at this place
April the 15th, A. D. 1818,
aged 28 years & 21 days.
He was a native of S. C.

   The three young men arrived at Brownsville, early in the year 1818 with a gang of negroes, their occupation being that of slave-drivers. They camped out on the hill north of Dunlap's Creek. A terrible fever broke out among them and prevented them from starting South as soon as they wanted to. The negroes died off at a fearful rate. At last the three white men who were driving the party felt sick of the same disease. Machen died last, and before he passed away he arranged with a Brownsville man, Copeland, to drive the surrounding slaves the balance of the journey. Copeland started with them, but he too was attacked by the fever before he had proceeded many days, and died among strangers.

   The Washington brothers and Machen were buried in the old fort where the stones can be seen. A neat brick wall was put up around their mounds by order of their relatives and in this wall the stone slabs were fixed. But in the course of time the property changed hands, the place was sadly neglected, the brick wall fell down, and the grave stones were allowed to lay lengthwise on the ground. The two young Washingtons were grand-nephews of President Washington, and Machen was a relative of the two Washingtons.

Gaston WEIGLE ( -1916)

UNIONTOWN’S SPEEDWAY IS GIVEN SECOND BAPTISM OF BLOOD
FIVE LIVES ARE SACRIFICED
TO THE SPEED MANIA IN FIRST
WEEK OF THE NEW RACING BOWL

Two Killed and Many Hurt
During the Inaugural
Meeting.
FOLLOWS AN EARLIER TRADEDY
Public Sentiment Is Aroused Against
Reckless Sacrifice of Human Life in
Name of Sport: Promoters Say
Tragedies Will Not Hinder Program.

   At least five lives were sacrificed in the speed mania at Uniontown’s new Speedway during the first week of its operation, and the toll may grow. Following the tragedy earlier in the week in which two Pittsburg youths were killed trying out their car, the inaugural meeting on Saturday was marred by an accident which cost the lives of Hughie Hughes, one of the best known drivers in the country, Gaston Weigle, a mechanician, and probably fatally hurt, Frank Galvin, another driver, besides injuring a number of spectators. Galvin died at noon today.

   The succession of fatalities has aroused sentiment against holding such exhibitions in the name of sport. That this sentiment is not confined to the spectators is indicated by the fact that J. C. Hoskins, millionaire patron of the racing game, has definitely announced that he will sell his machine and retire. He entered the game a few years ago “for the sport of it,” but the kind of sport he saw at Uniontown, “sport” which cost the life of his driver, has disgusted him. It is predicted that a serious effort will be made to have the Pennsylvania Legislature enact a measure prohibiting such exhibitions within the state, and that the long arm of the law may check reckless waste of life for financial gain, even though the promoters of such enterprise plan its continuance. There was some speculation in Uniontown today as to the possibility of damage suits against the speedway association. The opinion prevails that none will be brought. Virtually all of the spectators who were hurt had entered on passes and were obliged to sign a release for damages. Whether such releases would hold is a delicate question of law. As the result of a comparatively recent race tragedy in California suits have been brought against the county in which the event was held, it having been staged on a public highway.

   Spectators from Connellsville who saw the tragedy were agreed that little excitement followed it. So interested were the majority of the people in the stands and infield that few realized just what had happened. There was something of a flurry in the immediate vicinity of the scene, but there was no undue expression of either excitement or emotion.

TWO KILLED, MANY
HURT, IN ACCIDENT

   Hughie Hughes, internationally famous racing driver, and Gaston Weigle, a mechanician, were killed. Frank Galvin, another driver, was fatally injured, and 14 persons were hurt at the new Uniontown speedway Saturday afternoon about 3:30 o’clock when Galvin’s Premier car, traveling about 100 miles an hour, swerved from the course and crashed into the press stand, 20 feet away. Hughes had just eliminated himself from the race, after leading most of the way, by running his car into the guardrail to avoid striking one of the other racers which had boxed him. He was standing at the side of the track telling J. C. Hoskins, owner of the car he had driven, how it happened when Galvin’s machine came along and in the twinkling of an eye overturned and crashed into the group of men nest to the press box.

THE DEAD

   HUGHIE HUGHES, aged 34; London, England.
   GASTON WEIGLE, aged 28, of Indianapolis; mechanician for Frank Galvin; body crushed when auto turned over on it.
   FRANK GALVIN, of Indianapolis; fractured skull, concussion of the brain, died in Uniontown hospital.,

THE INJURED

   CONSTABLE MONT. McCORMICK, Uniontown; right leg injured; not serious; taken home.
   RICHARD SPAVEN, 1122 North Euclid avenue, Pittsburg; compound fracture of the right leg.
   ELMER PUTNAM, aged 31, Pittsburg street, Uniontown; fractured nose.
   L. H. CONGER, Akren, O.; fractured thigh.
   J. J. DOUGHERTY, 3510 Fifth avenue, Pittsburg; right arm broken.
   DANIEL W. ROSS, 36 South Rodgers avenue, Bellevue; nose fractured; hands cut.
   RICHARD ADAMS, 314 Fifth avenue, New York; bruises about the arms, head and body and cuts about the head.
   F. W. KELLY, Greensburg; head and shoulders bruised.
   G. H. RUE, Point Marion; hand bruised.
   JAMES W. WALL, Pittsburg; right hand hurt.
   EDWARD F. KORDELL, New York City; bruised about the body.
   DONALD REAMER, Uniontown, leg injured.
   W. L. MEYERS, Philadelphia, lacerations of body.

   Galvin was hurled clear of the machine. His mechanician, Gaston Weigle, was crushed beneath it as it overturned. The press box was demolished and a dozen newspaper men had miraculous escapes. Several of them were hurt, but none seriously.

   Hughes had led in the race until the 62nd lap, when he was forced to stop at the pits for a new swheel. When he returned to the track, he attempted to pass the Pugh Special at the west turn. The Pugh skidded just as he came up with it and swerved directly in the path of Hughes’ car. To avoid a collision Hughes drove into the guard rail. He and his mechanician escaped unhurt, but they had eliminated themselves from the race. Hughes crossed the field to the starting point and was telling Mr. Hoskins and a group of other men what had happened when the Premier car overturned. His last act was a twitch of his wrist to warn Mr. Haskins of the oncoming racer. M. Worth Colwell, publicity director; Richard Adams, millionaire racing driver; Mont McCormick, Uniontown constable, and several others were in the group, but they managed to evade the machine.

   Hughes and Weigle were killed instantly, their bodies being badly crushed. Frank Galvin was taken to the Uniontown hospital in a critical condition. He died at noon. Hughes’ body was shipped to Los Angeles, where his wife resides. Weigle and Galvin resided at Indianapolis.

   Article continues concerning racing results.

HUGHES’ BODY IS
SHIPPED WEST

Casket is Transferred to Through
Train at the Station Here; Will
Send Galvin’s Corpse East.

   The body of Hughie Hughes, the racing driver killed at the Uniontown speedway on Saturday, was shipped from Uniontown to his former home in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. It was transferred from the Fairmont branch train to No. 15 at Connellsville. On the rough box were a wreath of flowers and a brown traveling bag, evidently Hughes’ own. A few of the racer’s friends went to the station to gaze upon the box that contained all that was mortal of him.

   At Uniontown the deceased driver’s fellow drivers and mechanicians bore the casket from the morgue to the railroad station. The pallbearers were Art Klien, Barny Newgard, Louis Fountaine, Russell Burns and Milt McBride. Acting as an escort were others interested in the Speedway races.

   The body of Frank Galvin, who died about noon yesterday from injuries he suffered when his machine overturned on Saturday, will be taken to the home of relatives at New Milford, Conn. His parents are expected to arrive in Uniontown today to claim the body. The remains of Gaston Weigle, Galvin’s mechanician, will be taken to his home in Indianapolis. An inquest into the deaths of Hughes, Galvin and Weigle will be conducted by Coroner S. H. Baum on Friday afternoon at 3 o’clock.

VERDICT ON WEIMERS DEATH
                   
The verdict of the coroner's jury in the case of William Weimer, who died in the Belle Vernon lockup on the night of September 20, was that his death was caused by congestion of the brain the result of alcoholism. Friends of Weimer claimed that he was roughly handled by the officer who arrested him and that he died from the effect of a fall on the pavement while in the officer's grasp.
They demanded an investigation and on their representations Coroner Hagan had the body exhumed. An examination did not show marks of violence, and the jury rendered a verdict as stated.

West, 84 years old, was struck at Fairchance Friday evening by B. & O. train due in Uniontown at 4:46, and sustained injuries which resulted in his death at the hospital less than two hours later. The deceased made his home with a son, Sanford West, at Hutchinson school house and since the warm weather opened had been anxious to visit a daughter in Springhill township. Friday afternoon as the weather was fine he went to Fairchance intending to take the evening southbound B. & O. train to his destination. While waiting on the platform in the warm sun he fell asleep with his feet on one rail. As the northbound train approached the engineer saw him and sharply sounded the whistle as the train slowed down. Being suddenly awakened by the noise of the approaching train it is supposed that Mr. West became confused and in trying to escape he fell across the track. By that time the train was upon him although running slow. It was necessary to back the engine to remove him. The wheels crushed his hip and right leg. He was placed on the train and brought to Uniontown and quickly removed to the hospital where every possible effort was made to save his life ad ease his suffering. He died at 6 o'clock shortly after his son Sanford reached his side. The body was taken to the undertaking office of J. Harry Johnston where it was prepared for burial. Saturday morning it was removed to the home of his son, Sanford West, at Hutchinson school house. The deceased was born in West Virginia, but came to Fayette County when a young man. He is survived by five daughters and one son, his wife, Mary West, and one son, John, being deceased. The children are: Mrs. Martha Robinson, Springhill Township, Mrs. Chauncey Shipley, Orient; Mrs. Robert Rochester, Hutchinson; Mrs. Ernest Fletcher, near Greensburg, and Sanford West, Hutchinson. Funeral from the home of his son Sunday at 1 o'clock and interment at Hopwood.

James WHALEY (1788-1869)

Obituary

   Captain James Whaley of whose death we spoke last week, was a son of Benjamin Whaley, an officer in the Revolutionary army and one of the early settlers of this county. Benjamin Whaley came to this country at an early day and was cotemporary with, and a near relative of Col. Wm. Crawford who served with destinction under General Washington, and was actively engaged in all of the frontier wars, and expeditions against the Indians, and who finally met a cruel and tragic death at the the stake. We are not able to learn whether Benjamin Whaley was with Colonel Crawford in this unfortunate expedition against the Moravian Indians, but he was on many occasions a tried and trust companion in those dangerous and often disasterous expeditions. He had settled in what was then Youghiogheny, Virginia, now Tyrone, Tyrone Tp., in this County, at “Federal Hill,” and was therefore a near neighbor to Col Crawford. At this place his son, Capt. James Whaley was born on the 26th of March, 1788. In those stirring and troublous times Captain Whaley’s childhood was passed. Forays by mauranding Indians, and nocturnal attacks, with all the accompanying horrors of Indian warfare were of frequent occurrence. As he grew into manhood the last war with England occurred. His family had the old chivalric spirit. In Europe and America in days gone by it had been identified with military movements. The tocsin of war was scarcely sounded till Captain Whaley, then scarcely twenty four years of age, responded in his Country’s call, and was the first to enlist from the Youghiogheny Valley. In the fall of 1812 he commanded accompany belonging to Colonel Robert Patterson’s Regiment. The regiment marched to the frontier where it took an active part in what was known as the “North Western Expedition.” Through all the hardships and trials incident to Indian fighting and frontier life, Captain Whaley bore himself like a brave man, a true soldier and an efficient officer beloved by his men and esteemed by his commander. At the close of the war Captain Whaley returned to his home where he resided for many years. Some years since he removed from the “Yough Region” to Uniontown, where he has since resided. As a man of sterling integrity he was highly esteemed by all who knew him. Full of years and respected by an entire community he has passed the way of all things earthly. His presence will be missed, but his memory will remain fresh and green for years to come, for there are few of the younger generation who did not know the “Old Captain” and honored and respected him as a warrior of the olden time. Peace to his ashes.
