PRICE, Benjamin Henry

Fatal Accident - Early afternoon the sad intelligence reached town that Benjamin Price, sixteen year old son of W. H. Price, of this place, had been killed in Barton and George's Creek Valley coal company's mines by a fall of roof. His father and elder brother were at work at the breast and the unfortunate young man was engaged in exchanging a long prop for a short one, prepartory to taking up the bottom layer of coal. While doing so an immense overhead mass came down and buried him out of sight. Death, of course, was instantaneous. The accident was wholly unavoidable, as found by a jury of inquest a few hours later. The father and elder brother, although near by and caught by the fail on the inside, nest[?] the breast, strangely but forunately escaped unhurt. The young man was highly esteemed by the many who knew him, and his sudden and tragic end is deeply deplored.
