NEFF, Mr. Callie (see also REED, Miss Daisy)  

"A DOUBLE TRAGEDY-Two Young People Killed by No. 12-One of the saddest fatal accidents that ever took place in this vicinity occurred about 9:20 Tuesday evening, July 10, 1906, a short distance east of the Bloomington bridge on the B & O railroad, resulting in the instant death of Mr. Callie Neff, a B & O freight brakeman, residing with his mother on the east end of Fairview street near the HERALD office, and Miss Daisy Reed, of Bloomington, Md. Miss Reed had spent the evening in Piedmont and Mr. Neff started to accompany her home, walking up the B & O railroad. A Mr. Fazenbaker, of the Junction, witnessed the accident and immediately summoned assistance. They were walking on the north (westbound) track and took it for granted that passenger train No. 12, which they must have heard coming, was on the south (eastbound) track. Owing to a wreck near Bloomington No. 12 was sent over the north track and dashed around the curve through a cut so suddenly they did not have time to get off the track. Both were instantly killed and their bodies thrown some distance, the engineer, Mr. Wm. Fazenbaker, not being aware of the accident. Their bodies were brought to Piedmont at once and taken to the Fredlock undertaking rooms on Lyon street and prepared for burial before being sent to their respective homes. Callie Elwood Neff is the eldest son of Mr. John W. and Mrs. Fannie Neff, and was born at Frankfort, Mineral county, Christmas day-December 25, 1884, being in his 22nd year. He was an industrious young man and had been materially assisting in the support of the family for several years. He had been in the employ of the B & O for eight years, the last two having been spent as brakeman here. He had been transferred to the Keyser yard where he had only worked two days. His was a social disposition and he was popular with his railroad associates and all his acquaintances. The family-especially his devoted mother, to whom he had always been so kind and helpful-are heart broken over his tragic death. The funeral of Miss Reed took place at eleven o'clock this morning from St. Peter's Catholic church, Westernport, Md. The funeral of Mr. Neff will take place from the Southern M. E. church at two o'clock this afternoon, Rev. H. L. Hout..."

NEFF, Samuel Gunnett

Samuel Gunnett Neff, ex-local leader, dies
A former labor leader who was instrumental in saving the local Tube Mill and later rose to be a state senator and started an area golf course, Samuel Gunnett Neff, 81, of Rotunda West, Fla., died of natural causes Thursday, March 23, 1995, at his residence. Born Sept. 23, 1913, in Frostburg, Md., to the late Samuel M. and Bernadette Crow Gunnett, he moved to Ellwood City around 1916, attended local schools and served as captain of the high school football team in both his junior and senior years, which was a rarity then and even now. He worked at National Tube, later Ellwood Works of U.S. Steel, served as president of Local 1220, production workers' union at the mill, and became a staff representative of United Steelworkers of America. After the end of World War II when it was announced the local Tube Mill would close, Mr. Neff was on the committee of seven steelworkers who went to Hoboken, NJ, in an attempt to save the mill. He was described as an eloquent spokesman for that group when it appeared before the U.S. Steel board of directors and at a shareholders' meeting. As I result of those sessions, the local mill did not close at that time and remained in operation for more than 25 years. Much of the credit for keeping the mill in operation went to Mr. Neff and that committee. Mr. Neff was elected a state senator in 1948, serving one term, and later was head of workmen's compensation in the slate. At one time, he was also a candidate for governor. He later built Palisades Golf Course, now known as Fox Run Golf Course on River Rd. in North Sewickley Twp. In the spring of 1984, Mr. Neff sold the golf course to Max and Shirley Mesing, current owners, who changed the name to Fox Run and have since redesigned it and made major improvements. Mr. Neff had also been chairman of Beaver County Democrats in the 1950s. He moved to Florida about 15 years ago. Surviving are his wife, Evelyn K. Slade Neff; a son, Theodore Neff of Totonda West; and four daughters, Nancy Shepherd of Painesville, Ohio, Mabel Neff of Englewood, Fla., Catherine Franek of Bradenton, Fla., and Virginia Neff of Jacksonville, Fla. Also surviving are 10 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; two brothers, Bob Griffith of Whispering Pines, NC, and George Gunnett of New Castle; and a sister, Maryland Thornhill of Ellwood City. He was preceded in death by a son, Sammy Neff, who died in 1942 and by two brothers, James Kenneth "Kenny" Gunnett of Ellwood City and Theodore 'Dory" Gunnett of New Castle. Private services were planned in Florida. Memorial donations in Mr. Neff 's name may be made to the Ellwood City Area Historical Society, P.O. Box 611, Ellwood City, PA 16117.

Notes From Robert L. Griffith:

When Bob was about 3 years old, his mother, Bernadette, died and Bob was raised by his aunt and uncle, George and Lutie Crow Griffith. He was never legally adopted but chose to use the Griffith last name, hence the name change from Gunnett to Griffith. In later life, due to birth certificate problems, it was later necessary to make the name change legal. At Sam's birth, Sam's mother Bernadette Crow Gunnett died, and Sam was raised by his Uncle Clark and Aunt Edna Crow Neff. As with his brother, Bob, Sam was also was never legally adopted.
Notes from Dick Crow:
Sam had done a great bit of research on George Maxwell Crow and his family and I obtained a lot of info from his research.
His father was Samuel G. Gunnett and Sam's mother, Bernadette Crow, daughter of George M. Crow, passed away in 1914. Sam was born in 1913. It appears that since he was the youngest child that he was raised by his Aunt Mable Edna Crow who had married a Neff, thus the use of Neff by Sam.  Sam was involved in politics in the Beaver-Butler and Lawrence County area of Pennsylvania. He was a State Senator from this 47th Senatorial District and ran for Congress from that district, not certain whether he was elected or not.  The information relative to his Grandfather and Aunts and Uncles was furnished by Sam to me prior to his death in 1996[?].

NELSON, Mrs. Margaret Susan Diehl

NURSING ASSISTANT VICTIM OF SHOOTING
The estranged husband of a woman shot to death yesterday at Memorial Hospital today was refused bond in District Court. John Edwin Nelson, 44, who last resided at Central YMCA, is being charged with first degree murder and second degree murder in the shooting of Mrs Margaret Susan Nelson, 49, of 1211 Virginia Avenue. Mrs Nelson was shot and killed after she apparently entered the second level of the Memorial Hospital parking garage. She was shot several times and was pronounced dead in the emergency room of the hospital, where she had just finished a shift working as a nursing assistant. Judge Miller Bowen refused bond for Nelson because of the nature and circumstances of the offense with which he is charged and because he may pose a danger to himself and others. Joseph R Gallen has been retained as attorney for Nelson, who has requested a preliminary hearing in District Court. No date has yet been scheduled for that hearing. Corporal John W Morley, who is heading the investigation for city police, said police were notified of the shooting at 3:18 pm. According to Morley, the shooting was apparently the result of a domestic dispute. The suspect allegedly waited among the cars parked in the garage until the hospital shift changed and the victim was leaving to go home. The garage was reported to be almost full, with the exception of a few empty spaces around the door when the shooting occurred. Apparently there were several witnesses. A 22 caliber rifle was used in the shooting, police said, and then reportedly left at the scene. The suspect is alleged to have fled the garage on foot, after traveling to the hospital in a pickup truck. The truck was later reported to have been located on the lot of a South End restaurant. The suspect was apprehended by City Police at 4:20 pm. He was reportedly found riding in a cab on a North End street and was transported to city police headquarters. The victim had been employed by the hospital for five years, according to Ted Troxell, public relations director of Memorial Hospital. She was presently employed as a nursing assistant on 3 West. Mrs Nelson was a native of Wellersburg, Pa. and a daughter of James Franklin Diehl and Lula A (Michaels) Diehl. She was a 1949 graduate of Beall High School. Also surving are two sons, Daniel J. Emerick, Okinawa, Japan; Joseph F Emerick, at home; four daughters, Mrs Barbara Perkins and Mrs Louise Ann Burgess both of this city; Miss Julia Emerick, Fort Worth, Texas: Miss Mary Catherine Emerick, at home; seven brothers, Vernon Diehl, Bel Air, Md;. Irvin Diehl Wellersburg; John Lewis Diehl, LaVale; Herbert P Diehl, Sunnyside, Mt Savage;Harold D Diehl and J Orville Diehl both of Mt Savage; James R Diehl, Plano, Texas; three sisters, Mrs Mary Flanigan, and Mrs Nellie Hotchkiss, both of Mt Savage; and Mrs Teresa Pendleton, Safety Harbor, Fla, and one grandchild. Friends will be received at the Scarpelli Funeral Home Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm.

NEVILLE, Mortimore Delworth

On last Sun morning there was laid to rest the body of Mortimore Delworth Neville at the home place near Mt Storm, Grant Co. He was born Feb 12th, 1821, died Aug 30th, 1912, aged 91 years, 6 mo and 18 days. Thus closed life of one of the oldest citizens, a man well known throughout Grant and Mineral County. He had been a surveyor by profession, and lived for years at Mt Storm, then for some years in the Stone house on the North Western Turnpike, as the agent of the late Judge Armstrong, and his last years were spent in peace and rest with his son, Robert L. Neville, near Deer Park. A very large congregation gathered last Sunday morning at the M E church, Mt Storm to pay their tribute of respect to his remains. Rev. F. C. Rollman, of Elk Garden conducted the funeral services and preached an excellent sermon, he was assisted by the Rev. Johnson of Gormania and Rev. N. Alkire of Mt Storm. Mr. Neville had united with the M E Church, South some 35 years ago, and was a member of that church when he died. His wife had preceded him in death several years. Three children survive, Robert L. Neville, living near Deer, Park, Md; Mrs. Emma Shillingburg, wife of Wm. Shillingburg, near Hartmonsville, and Nannie Neville, of Keyser, Mineral County. Thus passes away one of our oldest citizens, and may peace be unto his ashes.

NEVILLE, Col. Mortimore Delworth

We notice in the obituary of our good and venerable friend, the late Col. M. D. Neville, published last week, that the writer says "He had been a surveyor by profession." Now the following bit of his family history, as related to us a few years ago by the Colonel himself, may be interesting to many of the readers of the Tribune. Col. Neville's grandfather, General Neville, of Old Fields - then Hampshire County, Va., was a surveyor and C. E. He worked with Geo. Washington whilst he was surveying for Lord Fairfax in and about the Old Fields. Gen. Neville also bought his farm on the South Branch of Lord Fairfax. Gen. Neville was also appointed on behalf of the state of Va. to act in behalf of his state, with a surveyor appointed by Pa., to run the dividing line between those two states, which they did, by beginning at the corner of Md - the western end of the Mason and Dixon Line - and extending said line until Pa had her five degrees westward from the Delaware river, thence north until they struck the Ohio River below Pittsburg. They made a report of their survey, which was ratified by the Legislatures of both states.
Major Neville, the Colonel's father, who owned an immense body of land in the Alleghany mountains, but at that day not very valuable, was also a surveyor. He ran the dividing line between Hampshire and Hardy counties. The colonel had his field notes in his possession and gave me the calls of said line, but I have now forgotten them, but the beginning is at the mouth of Stony River, and runs straight to the top of High Knob, a distance of twenty miles and some poles.
The Colonel's son, Robt L Neville, is a surveyor also.

NEWMAN, William B.

Saturday morning, April 19, 1913, William B. Newman, one of the most popular B&O freight conductors on the Third Division, was instantly killed at Newburg at 6:20 o'clock. Conductor Newman, who was one of the oldest men in the service, was going west on a freight train and had stopped for water at Newburg. In passing around the rear of his train he stepped onto the other track directly in front of the way train, which was running at a fair rate of speed. If he saw the approaching engine he did not have time to save himself, nor did the engineer have time to check the train. He was struck and hurled for some distance, receiving injuries which caused almost instant death. His son, Maurice Newman, was on the cars and saw a man fall under the wheels, but did not realize at first it was his father. They talked just a few minutes before. The body of the unfortunate man was brought here on the noon accommodation. It was accompanied by J. N. Laing, a Masonic friend and brother of Newburg. Here, Keyser Masons escorted the remains to Thompson's Undertaking Parlors. Mr. Newman was 61 years old and a native of Corinth section of Preston Co. He is survived by his wife, who was a Miss Copp, also of Preston Co., one son, Maurice Newman, and one daughter, Mrs. Roy Spangler. He was a member of Davis Lodge No. 51, AF&AM, Keyser and No 497, Order Railway Conductors. On Monday morning after services at the home conducted by Rev. A. O. Price, a special train took the body to Terra Alta where the burial took place about noon, with Masonic rites, the O. R. C. also participating. The train took from here about 175 people and to these were added about 25 more enroute. Many Masons, members of the Order of Railroad Conductors, and Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, and the Ladies Auxiliary to the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, were in the party, with the relatives of the deceased.
