EICHHORN, William Quail also
DOOLAN, Frank, Jr.
(injured)


"TRAIN KILLS ONE AND INJURES ANOTHER MAN--Cumberland and Pennsylvania Coal Train Hit Coney Men On Tracks.

Lonaconing, Jan. 25. The condition of Frank Doolan, Jr., 23, who was seriously injured by a Cumberland and Pennsylvania train that killed William Quail Eichhorn, 25, last night, is reported improved today at Miner's Hospital, Frostburg. Doolan and Eichhorn were run down by a coal train at 6:55 p. m. while engaged in a fight on the railroad tracks. Eichhorn died in Miners Hospital, Frostburg, at 11:30 p. m. His right leg was amputated at the hip by Drs. J. G. Cobey and C. D. Stiles, Frostburg. He was also injured internally and was suffering from shock when admitted to the hospital. Doolan suffered a broken hip and a compound fracture of the left leg below the knee; also contused and lacerated wounds on the head. He was attended by Drs. R. C. Diahl, Frostburg and M. J. McDermott, Midland.

Engaged in Argument.
Both young men were married and had been friends for years. They engaged in an argument while in the gasoline service station operated by George Robinson in Detmold, near the community baseball field, according to State Officer George E. Miller. Later the pair left the station and went on the railroad tracks. "They were scuffling in the center of the track," Officer Miller quoted the engineer, Charles Shaffer, Westernport, as saying, when the engineman noticed them. Shaffer said he immediately applied the emergency brakes but was unable to keep from striking Eichhorn and Doolan. The train was stopped a short distance below where the men were hit. Conductor Adam Zais, Westernport, with other members of the crew and friends of Eichhorn and  Doolan who were attracted to the outside of the gas station by the sudden stop of the train, carried the injured men to Robinson's station. Two Eichhorn ambulances were summoned and the two were taken to the hospital. Eichhorn was a son of Mrs. Martha Eichhorn, and the late Gustave Eichhorn, West Main Street, Lonaconing. His father was killed a number of years ago in a mine accident. He was a graduated of Central High School, where he participated in many athletic events. He later was employed at the Celanese Corporation of America at Cumberland and was a full back on the Celanese soccer team. Besides his mother, with whom he resided, he is survived by his widow and a small son; two sisters, Mrs. Everett Hardegen and Miss Nellie Eichhorn, and a brother, Martin Eichhorn, all of Lonaconing. His body was removed to the M. Eichhorn mortuary and prepared for burial. Doolan is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Doolan, Sr., also of Lonaconing, and is employed as a truck driver by his father, an agent for the German Brewing company in the George's Creek section. He is married and resides with his wife on Church street. He also is the father of an infant child."

EISLER, EARL A.

FINZEL - Earl Adam 'Slim' Eisler, 86, of 77 Sampson Rock Road, Frostburg, went home with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, April 18, 2004.  He died at home surrounded by people who loved him. Born in Finzel, on March 23, 1918, he was the youngest child of the late John Adam and Hylie (Winebrenner) Clark Eisler.  He was also preceded in death by seven sisters; 10 brothers; and one granddaughter.
He got his first job at the age of nine hauling rocks to clear the way for the building of the Finzel Road.  When he got older, he worked in the coal mines and later for his sister Elsie Lotz at Frostburg Meats.  For years he sold Rawleigh Products door-to-door.  He eventually became an employee of the Celanese Amcelle Plant and was retired from there. Dad, Pappap, Pappy enjoyed fishing, hunting, watching baseball games, and working crypto quotes, but his passion was bluegrass music.  At the age of eight he began teaching himself how to play various instruments including the piano, harmonica, guitar, banjo, and mandolin but he became 'master of the fiddle.'  He played entirely by ear and it was said by more than one person that no one could play the 'Orange Blossom Special' like he did.  He won several fiddling contests and even judged a few. Being 6'3" and slender earned him the knick name 'Mountain City Slim' and over the years he played in several bands including The Mountain City Ramblers, Dusty Shaver's Gospel Singers and Appalachian Bluegrass to name a few.  In the early years he played for round and square dances all around the area and could be heard on live radio broadcasts.  In the later years he entertained children at the Outdoor School in Pleasant Valley and played at several nursing homes and churches, he also performed for the Governor at Rocky Gap State Park. He wrote, sang, and played the fiddle on an original song called 'Garrett County Home' in tribute to the place where he lived his entire life.  He had a wonderful sense of humor and was quite witty.  He also created and performed a comedy routine in which he portrayed a character he called 'Zookie'.  His talents were limitless. He cut down the trees and built his own home.  He loved to work with his hands and he called it 'tinkering around'.  He was extremely creative and truly could make something out of nothing.  He worked on everything from broken handles to lawn mowers and his skills at mending were summed up by his grandchildren, when as one stood crying over a broken toy, her brother comforted her by saying, 'Don't cry, Pappap can fix anything.'  And it was a rare occurrence when he couldn't. He is survived by three loving daughters, Helen Pauline 'Pommy' Keister and husband Bob, Oldtown, E. Loretta 'Letty' Minnick and husband Bob, Finzel, and Eileen Frances 'Leenie' Ewing and husband Kenny with whom he resided; a special granddaughter, Missy Ramhoff, whom he helped to raise; 12 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and three great-great- grandchildren; faithful companion and wonderful friend 'Alda' with whom he shared many memories; several nieces and nephews; and his former wife Helen (Minnick) Brode and her son, a special friend Raymond 'Butch' Brode. Earl's friends number too many to count.  They visited and called to inquire about him, sent cards, and kept him in their prayers.  He was also blessed to receive care and comfort from the Garrett Co. Home Health Care Team and Hospice of Garrett Co.  They became quite a part of his life and he looked forward to their visits. Friends and family will be received at the Durst Funeral Home, P.A., 57 Frost Ave., Frostburg, on Monday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. and Tuesday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Funeral services will be conducted at the Emmanuel United Methodist Church, Pocahontas Road, of which he was a member, on Wednesday at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Dan Agnew officiating.  His body will be taken to the church one hour prior to the services. Interment will be in the Emmanuel Methodist Cemetery.  Pallbearers will be grandsons, Greg Keister, Scott Keister, Travis Keister, David Blahut, Adam Campbell, and special friend Butch Brode.
What wonderful memories he has left with us.  He was the most precious man God ever made, and even though he is playing his fiddle in heaven now, he will be sadly, sadly missed by all who knew him. Memorial contributions may be made in Earl's name to Emmanuel United Methodist Church, 29 Pocahontas Road, Frostburg, MD.
