Mrs. Lydia Brown of Brownsville met a horrible death on Monday afternoon. She was an old lady, 72 years of age, and for some time has been partially paralyzed. She made her home with Albert Miller. On Monday afternoon all the family were away from the house, the children being at school and Mrs. Miller having gone down time to do some shopping. She left the old lady in bed, apparently asleep. It is supposed that the fire in an open gate became low and Mrs. Brown got up to stir it. Her clothing caught fire in some way and being in such a feeble condition she was unable to help herself or call for assistance. Mrs. Miller arrived home just in time to save the house from being burned down. After her clothes caught fire, Mrs. Brown staggered back to the bed and made an effort to smother the flames with the bed clothing. When Mrs. Miller came she was burned almost to a crisp and lived only a short time. Mrs. Brown was one of the oldest residents of Brownsville.

One woman is dead, two are injured and a fourth person is in the county jail facing a charge of murder as a result of an overturned motor truck accident at 1:30 o’clock yesterday morning on the road between Filbert and Orient. The accident occurred on a sharp turn in the road while the party was returning from a negro Armistice night dance at Brownsville.
MARY BROWN, aged 18, single, Filbert, crushed between the cab of the
overturned car and the road, died instantly.
WILBERT FROMAN, aged 22, of West Place, Uniontown, probable fracture
of the left ankle and lacerations, a patient in Uniontown hospital.
HARRIET WILLIAMS, aged 18, of Pennsylvania avenue, lacerations of both legs and
possible fracture, also a patient in Uniontown hospital.
CORNELIUS VANDERBILT LEE, aged 28, arrested and placed in county jail by
County Detective Bledsoe, facing a charge of murder, bruised.
According to the authorities Lee fled from the scene following the accident. It is further charged that Lee, who was the driver of the car, was proceeding at an unreasonable rate of speed when he failed to negotiate the curve. He was arrested shortly after the accident by State Trooper Hanlon and taken to the county detective’s office where he gave an account of the upset. Lee’s wife, Anna Lee, was shot and killed by William Robinson last summer following an argument at the Lee home in Asken street.
Lee is a driver for the Home Fuel Supply company and according to W. H. Humphreys, owner of the concern, the negro took the truck out of the garage without his consent. Froman, who is Lee’s half-brother, accompanied the local man on the trip to Brownsville. After the dance they Mary Brown and Harriet Williams and the two girls accepted Lee’s invitation to return home in the truck. All four piled into the cab of the truck and were sitting on the front seat when the accident occurred.
Rescuers when they came upon the scene found the body of the Brown girl half out of the truck and wedged between the cab and the cement road. More than a ton of pressure lay weighed on her breast and life had been crushed out of her in the first minute of the the accident. Coroner S. A. Baltz and officials who were called to the scene worked for an hour to remove the body, finally securing the services of an automobile derrick to lift the overturned truck.
There was no signs of intoxication about the party and all of the survivors agreed there had been no drinking. The body of the Brown woman was removed to the morgue of J. Harry Johnston. Upon recommendation of a coroner’s jury yesterday, Lee was ordered held under a manslaughter charge instead of the murder charge already preferred against him by Detective Bledsoe earlier in the day. Lee is still being held in the county jail on the latter charge without bail.
Miss Brown is survived by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Brown of Jefferson township; four sisters, Ethel, Jeannette, Jessie and Etta, and six brothers, Louis, Eugene, Edward, Henry, Harry, Jr., and Kenneth. Funeral services will be held in the South Brownsville A. M. E. church Monday morning, the time to be announced later, with the Rev. Mr. Florence, officiating. Burial will be in Woodlawn cemetery.

BROWN— March 10th, at the residence of Noah Brown, Mrs. SARAH BROWN, in the 62nd year of her age.
The deceased was for some years preceding her death, afflicted with cancer, and during the last two or three months of her illness suffered severely. One month before her death she expressed a desire to unite with the Church of Christ, and was accordingly, by a public profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, received into fellowship, with the Evangelical Lutheran Church. As her bodily strength became weaker, her faith grew stronger, and her hope brighter. So when the Master called for her, she departed in the triumph of the Christian faith. H. A.

Mrs. Brown has been in poor health for more than a year and during the past five months has been unable to leave her bed. Her suffering during her entire illness has been intense, although the best medical aid was at all times procured. Nothing could stay the dread disease until death ended her sufferings. She bore her agonies with patience and Christian fortitude and died in the blessed hope of a happy resurrection.

She suffered a relapse sometime ago and grew gradually weaker until the end came.
She was the daughter of John Clark and Hannah Farr Clark and was born June 3, 1869, in South Union township, where she resided until the time of her marriage 26 years ago last month. She had been a staunch member of the Asbury M. E. church and affiliated prominently with the Victory class and other auxiliaries of the church to which she gave considerable time and material assistance. She was also a member of the Great Meadows Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Tireless in her work in the community she had been sadly missed where she was accustomed to serve and her death comes as a distinct shock to her many friends in this community.
Mrs. Brownfield was the mother of two children, Ruth and William, both of whom died while at tender years. Two brothers, Moses H. Clark and John Clark, preceded her in death. She is survived by her husband and the following sisters and brother: Mrs. D. E.

At his residence in George Tp., Fayette Co., Pa., on
the 5th day of March, 1863, ALEX BROWNFIELD, Esq., in the 67th
year of his age. He was for many years a member of the M. E.
Church and always generously and liberally contributed toward
sustaining every interest of the church of his choice, but best
of all, he died bearing a very comfortable testimony that he
had “set his house in order,” and that he has exchanged the
suffering of uncertainties of his life for the glorious
realities and an eternal life with God in Heaven. As a husband
and father, he was kind, affectionate and loving. As a friend
and neighbor he was generous and accommodating almost to a
fault – no one ever asked a favor of him without its being
freely and cordially granted if it was in his power to do so.
Although we do not claim for our departed friend exemption from
the errors and imperfections of our common nature, we do claim
for him the very highest position as an honest, honorable and
upright man, ever kind, affable and gentleman! In his
deportment, he endeared himself to all with whom he had
intercourse. His death will be deeply lamented by all who knew
him, and those who knew him best will cherish his memory most.

BROWNFIELD— March 22, 1870, in Allegheny City, Pa, Hattie Brownfield.
Another friend has left us in the changing journey of life, left us in the bloom of youth, when the future, with all its hopes and joys stretched radiantly beyond, just as spring was unfolding her rich treasure of land and. . . , she was taken to the land whose brightening and beauty are never shadowed by wintery storms, from home, yet among friends. Hattie’s life was ended. Sorrowing hearts stood around her bedside, and strove by every care to lessen her anguish; but neither medical skill nor prayers, nor tears, availed to slacken the speed of the destroyer. After three days of severe sickness all hope was over, and in the arms of a beloved brother, she gently fell asleep to awaken only in Eternity.
The pleasant smile and voice that met us with cheerful welcome shall linger in our hearts, and reach around the many familiar places in the old homestead. Not soon will be forgotten the loved one, endeared to many hearts by deeds of love and kindness. Across the dark river of death, safe from all sorrow and pain, she waits to welcome as to a home where partings and tears, can never come. From the shortness of life let us learn lessons of faith and love, trusting that when the messenger shall touch with ley finger our speaking lips we shall be ready.
Funeral services of James Brownfield will be held in the home at Haydentown this afternoon at 2:30 o’clock. The interment will be in Jennings cemetery.

Whooping cough and dysentery, combined in their attack upon the cherished life of these little ones, who now sleep peacefully by the side of three little brothers who passed away together a few years ago.

On the 8th inst., in South Union township, MARGARET, daughter of Thomas and Eliza Brownfield, aged about one year.
Three Uniontown women were hurt and two of them will be hospitalized a while longer in Jerusalem, Israel, after they were injured on a tour there. Margaret and Elizabeth Brownfield of 8 Crest Street, and Mrs. Virginia M. Farr of 67 N. Mt. Vernon Ave. were injured Wednesday when a bus struck seven pedestrians in a parking lot in the holy city. The three local women were part of a tour to the holy land led by Rev. Charles Loney, pastor of the Asbury United Methodist Church here.
Elizabeth Brownfield was reported in fair condition and was expected to be hospitalized for two or three weeks in Israel. Her sister, Margaret, was reported in good condition and was expected to be released from the Jerusalem Hospital soon. Mrs. Farr was treated at the hospital and released following the accident. Rev. Don Smith, pastor of the Christ Methodist Church here said the three women are members of his congregation. He also remarked that he and Rev. Loney are requesting prayers for the rapid recovery of the injured women. The tour sponsored by the United Methodist Center at Pittsburgh left Feb. 19, and travelers are expected to return home March 1. Most of the travelers on the trip are from Fayette County. Four other persons on the same tour were also hurt in the accident and treated at hospitals near the scene.
Rev. Smith said it may be possible that Elizabeth Brownfield, the most seriously injured of the three Uniontown women may be transferred to a state-side hospital within the next two weeks
It was two years, February 21, since Elizabeth "Libby" Brownfield and her sister Margaret were injured in an accident that took place in Jerusalem. The sisters, both retired school teachers of the Laurel Highlands School District, were with a tour group at the time. The accident happened as the ladies, residents of 8 Crest Street, Uniontown, were boarding a bus for a tour of the Holy City Shrines in Jerusalem one of the first stops on their scheduled tour. The more seriously injured of the two. Miss Libby suffered a compound leg fracture from which she has never entirely recovered and which still prohibits her walking. For eight weeks she was a patient in Hadassah Medical Clinic.
Miss Margaret was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital. When sufficiently recovered, she remained in Jerusalem to be near her sister until they could fly back to the United States and home. Miss Libby has been in and out of the hospitals numerous times during the past two years and in early February was in Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh for post-operative treatment relating to a gall bladder problem.
In spite of the accident's consequences and related medical problems, Miss Libby has accepted her inabilities with fortitude and good spirits, "and now," Miss Margaret says' "she just wants to become strong enough to cuddle the new baby which is expected within the immediate family circle in the "not too far away."

BRYANT— On the 28th of Oct. 1864, Private Joshua Bryant, late of Co. E. 155 Reg’t, Penna Vol’s, aged 37 years. He was wounded in the battle of the 27th of October, and died of his wound on the following evening. He volunteered over two years since, had less than a year to serve, when he expected to receive his discharge and return to his family and quiet of home and of civil life. But that privilege was denied him; he has fallen with many others on the battle field in this most unnatural of all wars. But although he died at the hand of violence, away from home and kindred, he fell in a good cause and in the enjoyment of a good hope. Some years since he professed religion and united with the Salem congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, of which he was a member at the time of his death. And through Chaplain Taft, of the 179th N. Y. Vol’s, who attended him during his last hours were learn that his last moments were most peaceful and triumphant. Then let his bereaved and stricken wife and children be comforted and cheered in view of the privilege of meeting him, as he desired that they would prepare to do, where there will be no more separations.
BRYANT— On the 2d of April, 1865, at the family residence in Menallen township, Fayette County, Pa., MARY J. BRYANT, in the 14th year of her age.
Mary Jane has passed in early life from the trials and sufferings of this world to the rewards and enjoyment of eternity. But not until she had felt deeply the ills to which humanity is heir here. She passed through a tedious and painful affliction, which we trust was sanctified.

In the dining room of the Odd Fellows lodge room where he had spent so many years fostering the fraternal spirit of brotherly love, Carey S. Bryner, aged 63, one of Uniontown's best known printers, lay down to die Friday night, January 24, 1930, taking a dose of carbolic acid to bring to an end a busy life during which he had accumulated scores of friends. Stretched on the floor, his one arm extended and still holding the death lotion, Bryner's body was discovered at 7:30 o'clock Saturday morning by his brother-in-law, Isaac Riffle, who for a number of years had been superintendent of the Odd Fellow's building, North Gallatin avenue and Peter street. For the past 28 years Mr. Bryner had been connected almost continuously with the Farwell Printing Company, working at intervals in the composing room of the Uniontown newspapers. Last Thanksgiving he was laid off because of slack work and he has been despondent ever since, say members of the family. Mr. Bryner was a member of the Fort Necessity Lodge No. 254, I.O.O.F., a member of Alpheus B. Wilson Lodge, Knights of Pythias, the Woodmen of the World and the Typographical Union of the city. Mr. Bryner was born in Uniontown, a son of Robert and Sarah Smalley Bryner. He is survived by his wife, Martha Bryner, a sister, Mrs. Blanche Riffle, and three sons and a daughter, Charles V., at home; Joseph, of Homewood; Eola, of Dunbar township and Homer LeRoy of Uniontown. Carey Bryner began his printing apprenticeship shorty after graduating from Room Ten of the Uniontown schools, then the highest grade to which public instruction had reached in this city. He went to work for the Uniontown News, a weekly, which had followed the old Western Pennsylvanian, owned by John Crable and located in the Campbell- Hathaway building. Mr. Crable had conducted the Pennsylvanian in Brownsville, but believing the Uniontown field brighter, he moved his equipment to this city. Financial disaster brought the sheriff to his door, however, and then the late Lyman Kane and Charles D. Conner took over the “remains” establishing the Uniontown News. It was here that Mr. Bryner first found out the meaning of "type lice" and the size of a "stick", and the vagaries of quads, ems, rules and the rest of the language of the type. Mr. Bryner remained with the old News until it was taken over by the Ewing interests and turned into the Republican News and later the News Standard. When the publication left the building where the Hagan-Hopwood law office building now stands, Mr. Bryner parted company with his early love and began work for Farwell. He will always be remembered by the printers of Uniontown as a most congenial soul and by his many fraternal brothers as a kindly spirit ever willing to brighten the fires of brotherly love on the affairs of a common fraternalism and to which he devoted many hours of his life.

DUNBAR TOWNSHIP— A new Salem man was killed and another woman injured in a two vehicle collision along Route 119 near Melody Manor Motor Inn which occurred about 12:30 a.m. Monday, according to the state police. David Paul Bryner, Jr., was taken to Highlands Hospital and Health Care in Connellsville, where he was pronounced dead as the result of massive head and chest injuries. Police said Bryner was driving a 1985 Honda Accord, and was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the fatal accident. The driver of the other vehicle was identified as Patricia Baughman, 44, of Uniontown, according to the police. She was listed in serious condition last night at Presbyterian University Hospital in Pittsburgh, where she was treated for severe leg injuries. Police said Baughman was driving a 1987 Ford Minivan, and was wearing a seatbelt when the accident occurred. According to police, the mishap occurred when Bryner's northbound car crossed the center of the highway and collided head on with Baughman’s southbound vehicle. Baughman was transported to the Pittsburgh facility by Life-Flight helicopter. Both vehicles sustained severe damage as a result of the collision. State police were assisted at the scene by members of the Dunbar and Morrell volunteer fire and ambulance, and the Connellsville city police.
A young New Salem R.D. 1, may have fallen asleep at the wheel before a traffic accident that led to his death last year. Fayette County Cornor's jurors on Thursday determined that David Paul Bryner, Jr. died accidently on September 5, when the car he was driving crossed the center line of the highway and struck a minivan on Route 119 in Dunbar Township. "There is a good possibility that he fell asleep" said Trooper Douglas Berezansky of the State police in Uniontown. Following an inquest investigation hearing, the jury determined that the driver of the minivan, Patricia Baughman, was not at fault in the accident. The jurors also recommended that protective barriers dividing the highway be installed along that stretch of Route 119 outside Connellsville which has been the scene of several serious, fatal accidents. Dr. Phillip E. Reilly, the county coroner, told jurors that the cause of Bryner's death was massive blunt force trauma to the head, face and chest. He also suffered other fractures, multiple abrasions, cuts and bruises. The victim's blood alcohol level was .051 at the time of the crash, Reilly said. He added that while Bryner was underage, was not intoxicated the alcohol in his bloodstream could have made him sleepy. Berezansky testified that a witness to the crash, Demonte Price, told police that Bryner's vehicle did not have its headlights on when it crossed the center of the highway and hit Baughman’s vehicle. Price, who did not honor a subpoena to testify, also told police that Bryner appeared to be traveling at a high rate of speed. "I checked the speedometer on his car after the accident and it was locked at 70 miles an hour" the trooper confirmed.

James Bryner, Sr., departed this life May 25th, 1895, after an illness of only a few days, at the residence of his son, Jas., of Epperly, this county. The subject of this sketch was born in Fayette county, Pa., May 15th, 1811, and was consequently eighty-four years and ten days old. He was married to Miss Mary Bodkin in 1831. She died in 1848, leaving him with ten small children, four of which only survive him, namely, Mrs. Martha Clutter, of Ninevah, Pa., Alexander, of Washington, Pa., Jas., and Washington of this county. In 1856 he was married to Mrs. Mahalie Wignet of Green county, Pa. After a happy union of many years, she also preceded him to that "Better Land," from which time he made his home with his children. He was a man of many noble traits of character, always kind and agreeable, especially was he so for a man of his extreme age. As a father he was indulgent, as a friend always loyal and true, always ready to look on the bright side of life. By his kindly deeds and upright conduct he had endeared himself to all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Although his suffering was intense he was never heard to murmur or complain, other than to say that he sometimes wished the time shorter, that he did not desire to stay much longer. He had been a member of the Baptist Church for upwards of sixty years, through which time he lived and exemplary Christian life. Sadly do we miss his coming and that smile of friendship, yet "we sorrow not as they who have no hope." How consoling to know he has gone where all the good of earth are gathered, to be forever free from all care, to inherit that rest which "remains for the people of God." After appropriate funeral services the remains were laid to rest in the family cemetery in the presence of a large concourse of relatives and friends.

Jim Bryner was reportedly born on a one acre farm on Hardy Hill near Dunbar. He worked for a number of companies before retiring in 1975. He is one of the founders of the "Old Time Fiddlers Association." In his interview Jim talks of mountain people being poor but self- sufficient, having a garden and shooting turkey, deer, squirrel and rabbits to add to their food. He mentions that his granddad had hogs running loose, that being the origin of the name of the place called "Hog Rocks", as the hogs lived in the rocks. (We have big rocks in Fayette County.) The hogs had marks or notches on their ears, so they could be identified by their owners.
(A mouth-watering comment that brings back a memory is his mention of mixing dry bread in with cooking tomatoes. Mom added brown sugar.) Green beans were dried and hung in a flour sack behind the stove. They kept a crock of kraut on the porch as a mainstay in the winter. He describes the making of hominy, using lye water as well as the buckwheat, taking it to the mill in Ohiopyle which sat right on the falls. The women also picked plants in the woods, including dandelions, wild beets, wild parsley which would be mixed together and boiled, the bitter removed, and more water added. Then the greens were fried in bacon grease and vinegar (Sounds like Mom's version of wilted lettuce). Plants were gathered for medicines. Bees were hunted and the honey harvested. Sarvis berries, like small cherries, were picked from trees and eaten raw or used in pies. They also picked blackberries and huckleberries and something called "mountain sweets" which were used for preserves and jellies and canned for pies or dried them and put them in flour sacks. Jim Bryner then talked of mountain music. They had no electricity so no radios, etc. they had to make their own entertainment. He reported that his grandfather Bryner was a wonderful fiddler as was his mother’s uncle Jim Hardy. The primary instruments were fiddle and banjo, no guitars until much later. The banjo was the rhythm instrument to accompany the fiddle. Jim spoke of a Johnny from Dunbar who was the greatest banjo player that ever lived. Johnny once played all afternoon for a West Penn Power Picnic at Kennywood or Idlewild Park, riding the streetcar home, still entertaining. So many people joined him at the rear that the front end picked up and the back end dragged.
Jim mentions lots of details about old songs, names of some and how music is being preserved through the Old Time Fiddlers Association, which he helped form in 1972 when they had 32 people at their first meeting which was held in Strickler's barn. Sounds like the idea for this organization originated at the birthday party on the mountain with six or seven fiddles playing. A stranger was there and commented that "Wouldn't it be nice if there was more of us and we could do it more often?" Jim says he knew all the fiddlers in the county and would send them "a little note to come to a meeting" the rest is history.)
Ed can tell you more about this organization, although I did join it last year). At the time Jim was interview he reported there were 370 members at the meeting and it was getting too big to handle.
