Disaster came just on the eve of the Christmas season for six members of a well-known family who perished yesterday when flames destroyed their 100-year-old log cabin near Melcroft, 12 miles east of Connellsville.
Four other members of the family escaped with their lives, but two are in Connellsville Hospital suffering from severe burns as the result of making frantic efforts to rescue the victims from the fiery death-trap. Distraught relatives of the victims completed plans last night to bury their dead.
William Yothers, 79, and his sister, Annie, 70, burned to death inside the cabin where they were born.
Four young nieces and nephews, Wilmer D. Crow, 9; Jean Crow, 12; Annabelle Crow, 10, and Melvin Crow, 14, also died. Melvin succumbed in the Connellsville hospital, while the other three children died in the flaming home, being trapped in the same room with their aunt and uncle.
The father, Frank Crow, 45, and a stepson, Donald Snyder, 16, are in the Connellsville hospital where attaches say they will recover. Mres. Katherine Crow, 40, the mother, and anothe child, Alfred, 2, were rescued from the flames.
Mrs. Frank Sinnamond, of 88 Pennesylvania avenue, is a sister of Frank Crow, the father of the four victims. She and Mr. Sinnamond drove to the home of relatives near Melcroft to render whatever assistance possible.
Funeral services for the four Crow children will be held at 2:30 Friday afternoon in the Evangelical church at Davistown. Rev. W. S. Harr and Rev. William Brant will be in charge. Burial of the four victims will be in the Sparks cemetery, at Indian Head.
The rites for the aunt and uncle, William and Annie Yothers, will be conducted at 10 o'clock Friday morning in the Sparks Lutheran church at Indian Head, with Rev. W. S. Barr in charge. Burial will take place in Snyder cemetery.
Mrs. Crow and her two-year-old child have been taken to the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. George Snyder, of near Davistown. Her husband suffered severe burns on the lower part of the body, and the stepson, Donald Snyder, sustained minor brush burns and injuries about both arms.
The century-old building of log and frame construction was one of the landmarks in the vicinity near Melcroft. The home was decorated for Christmas and much perparation had been made for the coming event.
From his hospital bed, Mr. Crow described how he had attempted to light a fire with kerosene, when the stove exploded, spraying him with flaming liquid.
He siad he shouted to his wife and children, sleeping upstairs, then tore off his clothing as he ran outside for a ladder.
Mr. Crow said the three children burned inside the cabin apparently became confused as they ran down the only stairway, or were called into the room where their aunt and uncle lived.
Mrs. Crow and the baby were slower in coming down, he said, so he threw the ladder against the second story bedroom window.
Three coal miners, passing by on their way to work, Russell and W. S. Keller and Harold Pritts, saw the house burning, heard the screams of the children, but were unable to reach the scene in time to aid in the rescue.
Hysterical as she watched the flames take the lives of all of her children except the infant, Mrs. Crow was rushed to a nearby farmhouse where she and the baby were put under the care of neighbors. They later were taken to the Snyder home a few miles away.
The disaster struck just when the family was anticipating a joyous Christmas. The flames, in destroying the home, also claimed a closet full of presents hidden from the children, including snow suits, a new radio and many toys and candies.
The bodies were removed to the Clyde Brooks funeral home in Indian Head. All except Melvin Crow were burned beyond recognition, but the rmains of each victim was retrieved from the embers.

Isaac YOUNG died at the residence of his son, H. H. Young, near Mt. Vernon, Knox county, O., on Wednesday, October 19, 1842, aged 82 years and 26 days. He was born in Fairfield county, Conn., Sept. 23, 1760, and was married to Charity Hubbell, of the same county, on the 31st of July, 1785. Thence they removed to Uniontown, Fayette county, Pa. In the year 1788, while attending a Methodist prayer meeting, they were deeply convinced of sin, and earnestly groaned for redemption. As laboring, heavy-ladened sinners they came to Christ. He gave them rest. They joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, which at that time (according to a note in father Young's journal) numbered but 35,019 members in America, and Bishop Asbury was the only general superintendent. On the morning of the 24th of February, 1814, Charity Young died triumphantly, and doubtless rests in heaven. Father Young, after the death of his wife, moved to the state of Ohio, where he ended his days. During the last few years of his pilgrimage he was much afflicted in body, yet he was "joyful through hope."

Western Christian Advocate, January 6 1843, pg 152
On Friday, July 15th, the spirit of our friend and Brother, John
Young, in the 28th year of his age, left the earthly tenement
and ascended to the realms of eternity. Our late brother had
long been a sufferer, and his demise was not unexpected. At
the time of his death he was a respected member of Triumph
Lodge No. 613, Brownsville, Pa. His remains were interred with
the ceremonies of the Order by Triumph Lodge, assisted by No.
51, and visiting brothers from Fayette City and other parts of
the county, making the largest and most imposing proceedings
that the Order ever had in our Borough. The committee to whom
was referred the duty of preparing resolutions in regard to the
decease of Brother Young, respectfully, report the following:
WHEREAS, The hand of Death has taken from our midst one of our
members, renewing the oft-told lesson, that neither youth in
its summer time, life in its meridian, nor the winter of old
age, can exempt us from the common destiny of man, and teaching
us that whatever is mortal shall pout on immortality; therefore
Resolved, That while we receive this summons, in the death of
our brother, we sincerely regret his death, and extend our
heartfelt sympathies to the widow and orphans amidst the
deepest of all earthly afflictions. Resolved, That while earth
and its conflicts bear heavily upon us, that storm which
shivers our frame and breaks up our existence, bids us
especially to look beyond the confines of time into an unending
world, where we may be reunited with our departed brothers, and
enjoy the communion of saints forever. Resolved, That these
resolutions be entered upon the minutes of the Lodge, and that
the charter be draped in mourning for the space of three

P. church where the funeral sermon was delivered by Rev. D. R. LaRue of the Christian church. The music was furnished by singers from each of the churches. The pallbearers were: F. L. Bowers, Ira K. Crow, Lloyd Baker, R. C McClain, Ray H. Gans and Frank N. Gans, all of whom had helped to carry her to her home on a stretcher from the train when she was brought from the hospital, she having made her own selection of these young men to perform the service. Mrs. Young's death was the result of the flu, which she had last November and it developed into pneumonia, and this finally developed into pleura-pneumonia. She lived a devoted Christian life, having united with the church at the age of 13 years, and died full of faith in her Master and Savior. In 1896 she was married to Fulton E. Young and to this union were born the following children: Arthur N. Young, Greta A., Grethel G. and Kendall F., all of whom are living and home except Greta, who died when a little past two years of age. She was loved and respected by all who knew her, and she loved her family with an intense love, and took great interest in the care for and in the training of her children. The body, in charge of Undertaker E. J. Conn was taken to the South Point Marion cemetery for burial. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved friends in this their deep sorrow.
