NOGY, James

Yesterday considerable excitement was created by discovery of a dead body in the North Branch by B&O trainmen. As the river is Maryland property, the authorities of that state took charge, and the following "special" to this paper from Westernport tells all. The body of James Nogy, 55 years old, a Hungarian who had been employed at the mill of the W. Va. Pulp and Paper Co., at Luke, was found in the Potomac River lodged against a barrel, between Keyser and Piedmont, Thursday. Coroner William H. Shaw came up from Cumberland and had the body removed to the Fredlock undertaking establishment. No marks of violence were found. The man had been missing for four weeks. He drew his pay and a certificate of deposit showed he had over $40 in a New York bank, while over $6 was found in his clothes. It is supposed he fell into the river while intoxicated.

NOLAN, Dennis

"Crushed Under Fall of Coal- Dennis Nolan Meets With a Fatal Accident- CAUSE OF FALL A MYSTERY- Place of Working Considered Perfectly Safe-
Bureau of the Evening Times. Lonaconing, Md., Sept. 20. The life was crushed out of Dennis Nolan, and his father, brother and cousin escaped death by a hand's breadth in Ocean No. 1 mine yesterday afternoon. The four Nolans-experienced miners all-were working in a cross cut, pillaring. Dennis and his brother Martin were working side by side, their father and cousin, Daniel Nolan, of Lonaconing, were only a few steps away, when as quickly as a flash of lightening the roof and the breast came away, burying Dennis under at least two tons of coals and rock. How his brother Martin escaped, no one knows, nor can he, himself, explain it. Dennis was killed instantly, and no on can tell how it happened, for the roof was thoroughly well propped and the miners say that such an accident has never happened before within their experience. The roof and breast coal came away together. Dennis Nolan was born in Lonaconing 28 years ago, and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Nolan. The family moved from Lonaconing to Midland about four years ago. The oldest son of the family is Father Joseph Nolan, of Frostburg. Deceased is survived by his parents and two brothers and five sisters: Mrs. Michael Burns, Mrs. ? McDermott, Annie, Ellen and Loretta Nolan, all of Midland. Miss Annie is a school teacher and Ellen and Loretta are mere children. The unfortunate young man was a member in good standing of the temperance society attached to St. Joseph's Church, and was also a member of the A.O.H. "Denny", as he was called by his friends, was an expert coal miner, as are the three men who worked with him, and they left nothing undone to make their place perfectly secure and they firmly believe that an accident was impossible in that place. The unexpected happened, however, and Dennis Nolan, one of the soberest, industrious and respected young men of Midland was sent into eternal presence of his father...(unreadable)...Daniel Nolan, of Lonaconing: "...worked in a place that looked...safe as that did when I went...this morning. It was my first day in that place, and I can't understand how that coal came away." Mr. Nolan's body was brought home by his three "buttys" and a heartbreaking sight it was, the gray-haired father bringing home his dead boy, and the brother going ahead to "break the news" to the poor mother. If Daniel and Michael Nolan had not stepped out of the "breast" they, undoubtedly, would have been killed also."

WIDE OPEN SWITCH
On the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Near Washington, Pa, Wrecks Fast Passenger Train
Killing Connellsville Engineer and His Fireman and Injuring 20 Others
The Funeral of Engineer Noonan
The Cannon Ball Express on the Wheeling Division of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad ran into an open switch at Washington, Pa on last Friday morning and was precipitated over a trestle, killing two trainman and injuring twenty passengers (abridged).  James Noonan, the engineer,  and William McAuliffe,  the fireman, were both caught under the engine.  McAuliffe was gotten out but died shortly afterward.  Noonan was horribly crushed, his death having been instantaneous. (abridged) Had it not been for the presence of mind of James Noon, the unfortunate engineer, the wreck would have been worse.  The instant the pony wheels of the engine turned into the switch, he reversed the engine and put on the air.  "Jimmy" as he was familiarly called was a Connellsville boy.  (abridged)  His remains were brought to this place on Saturday and were taken to the residence of his mother.  The funeral services were conducted from the Catholic Church on Sunday afternoon.  (abridged)  He was 33 years of age and leaves a sister, three brothers, mother, wife and three children.  His wife was Miss Carrie Shively(sic-Schaible) whose parents reside here.  Jimmy's home was in Glenwood, where he had resided for several years.

NOONAN, Thomas C.
 
A Very Sad Death
Thomas C Noonan, a Carrier Boy of the Times Force Was Buried Monday Afternoon
Death is always sad, but when it comes in early youth when boyhood is just budding into manhood, death seems doubly sad.  Such has been the lot of poor Thomas C Noonan, son of Mr T F(sic) Noonan, the well known Baltimore and Ohio watchman, who died at his father's residence on Emily Street, Saturday night in the fourteenth year of his age.  "Tommy" as he was called, was one of the carrier boys of the Times force and was one of the very best boys who ever carried a Times route.  But death has claimed him and right on the threshold of Christmas when everyone feels a thrill of gladness.  Poor Tommy has been laid to rest and the glad Christmas has given to sorrow in the family household of which he was a beloved member, as well as by his friends, of which he numbered many.  The Times will miss his cheerful face, as he will never again go in or out its office door, as was his usual custom as a valuable newspaper carrier. The funeral took place from St. Patrick's church at 3 o'clock Monday, and the interment was made in St Patrick's cemetery. Among the floral offerings was a handsome one from the Evening Times.

NORMAN, William Lineley

William Lineley Norman departed this life Friday, December 6, 1912, near New London, Ohio, aged 69 years, 11 months, and 6 days. The funeral sermon was preached at Elk Garden on the Tuesday following by Rev. W. W. White, assisted by Revs. John A. Shockey and L. C. Messick. The deceased was a member of the Eagle, Lodge K of P, of Blaine, and the members of that order turned out in a body, also other members of the order in town. Rev. Messick spoke for the order. There were some fine floral pieces, furnished by the order and friends. He was a member of the M. E. Church, South, and was faithful attendant at church service. The body was interred in the Nethken Hill cemetery where his wife and son are buried.
Mr Norman was born in Durham County, England, and came to this county(?country) at the age of twenty-three. He married Miss Emma MacKenzie, of Beaver Falls, Pa. He came to Elk Garden in 1886 as a coal miner. Later he engaged in merchandising, but with the increasing years the business was gradually taken in hand by the family under the firm name of E. M. Norman & Co. He leaves a brother, John Norman, of Del Roy, Ohio, and a sister, Mrs. Wm. Gatt, of Mecca, Indiana. His children that are living are, James and Alonzo Norman, of Elk Garden, and Shaw, respectively, Mrs. Jessie Oats, of Elk Garden, Mrs. Anna Oats of Gormania, and Mrs. Mary Ross, of Providence, Rhode Island.
The circumstances of Mr. Norman's death are peculiar. Last July he left for a trip to England. He visited his old home in England and returned to New York, November 14, and then went to the home of his son-in-law, Prof. J. W. Ross, Providence, November 15. He left Providence December 5 for Indiana to see his sister. Near New London, Ohio, it appears that he fell from the train, the Big 4, at four o'clock in the morning and was instantly killed. The train was running at full speed, but he was missed, and the trainmen telegraphed back at the next station to other stations for trains to be on the lookout for a man along the track. The body was soon discovered by a passing train which ran to the next station when an engine and car were sent for the body. It was found between the tracks with back of head crushed and face bruised. A coroner took charge of the body and embalmed it and sent a telegram to Alonzo Norman at Shaw, there being papers on the body that identified him. James and Alonzo Norman went at once to new London, and brought the body to Shaw. Just how Mr. Norman came to his death is not known. The funeral was largely attended and all his children were in attendance.

NORTHRUP, Justin D.

Justin D. Northrup, general superintendent of the W Va and Md Gas Company, was found dead Wed night, about eight o'clock, in a room at the Windsor Hotel. Mr Northrup had been suffering from the heat and Mrs Northrup being away from home calling, he sought temporary rest at the hotel. Acute nephritis was the probably cause of death. Mr Northrup had also been a sufferer from organic heart trouble for several years. Mr Northrup's body was removed to the Stein undertaking rooms and Thurs morning were taken to his apartments on South Liberty St.
Mr Northrup was alive at six o'clock. It is thought he was dead an hour when found. There was no evidence that his death had been other than a gentle lapse into eternal slumber.
