SMITH, Carter

Died, in Sapulpa, Oklahoma (formerly of Keyser), Feb. 7, 1913, Carter, son of Mr and Mrs Albert Smith, aged 4 years, 2 months and 27 days.
Thus passed from earth to Heaven one of the sweetest children we have ever known. In little Carter we have lost the darling of our hearts and one of the most promising children.  His unusual intelligence and goodness won for him a warm place in the hearts of all who knew him and the home once made happy by his joyous life, is now the abode of sorrow.  Yet, we know we shall meet him again. May this transplanting of a beautiful flower lend new attractions to the home over which Death has cast a shadow.
  Dearest baby, thou hast left us,
 And our hearts are bleeding yet;
  But ‘tis God who hath bereft us,
  And we willingly submit.
  By one who loved him.

SMITH, Jack Ransom

FROSTBURG - Jack Ransom Smith, 83, passed away to his eternal reward on Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2010. He was the last surviving member of his family. Jack was born in Spartanburg, S.C., on Oct. 26, 1926 to Lonis Durham Sanders and Louis Edward Sanders. Jack was raised in Palm Beach County, Fla., and was formally adopted by his stepfather, Ransom Earl Smith. He served in the Merchant Marine during World War II. Jack moved to southern California with his family where he worked for Lockheed Aircraft Corporation. Jack's second step-father, Max Charles Beust and his mother conducted businesses at South Lake Tahoe and enticed Jack to manage their holdings. After the accidental death of his brother, Louis Earl Smith, and the demise of his step-father, Jack and his mother moved back to Spartanburg. After the death of his mother, Jack wanted to visit Ithaca, New York but got lost on the Pennsylvania Turnpike and ended up in Grantsville, Md. He wrote two published novels, THE CONTAINER IS READY and THE INTERGALACTIC EXPRESS. Both of which were inspired by his work at Lockheed. When he moved to Frostburg, he wrote his autobiography, SMOKEY MOUNTAIN LOVE STORY and another novel based on Max Beust's journals of the China-Burma Road, THE ODYSSEY OF THE 330TH COMBAT ENGINEERS. Upon meeting Eileen Stoger, he settled down in Garrett County to help run her ranch. Jack was revered by all who met him as a "True Southern Gentleman." He helped the neighborhood children appreciate jazz with his lessons on the drum. While visiting the schools where Eileen taught, he read to the children, always encouraging them to do their best and earned the title of "Candy Man" by bringing sweet reinforcements to the class. Jack's cherished friend, Steve Wininger, was the son he never had. Steve's family, Ellen, Chelsea, Matt and Maddie were such a comfort and help every day but especially during the challenging ones. Jack looked on the children in the neighborhood as his grandchildren, Tyler, Madison and Liam Dolchan, Ryan, Chris and Dylan McCann and little Claire Rasley. He treasured many happy holidays, birthdays, sports events and milestones in their lives. One of Jack's recent joys was at the Naval Academy Chapel where he was Jeffrey (Eileen's son) Winebrenner's Best Man. He added a new daughter-in-law, Joanne Tuin, and two new grandchildren, David and Alexandria to his family. Jack is survived by the love of his life, Eileen Stoger and her family, Linda, Andrew and Daniel Winebrenner of Virginia Beach. During his illness he was amazed and thrilled at the many kindnesses, cards, pictures, visits, balloons and meals from the children at Route 40 School, his neighbors and friends and all whose life he touched. According to his wishes, Jack will be cremated. A funeral Mass will be celebrated on Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2010 at 11 a.m. at Saint Ann's Church, Grantsville, with Father Ed Hendricks, celebrant. Friends are welcomed to attend. Arrangements by the Eichhorn-McKenzie Funeral Home, P.A., Midland (www.eichhornmckenzie.com). Memorials may be made to Beall Elementary School, Frostburg. A summer celebration of Jack's life will be announced when Jeffrey and his family are stateside in August.

SMITH, John

A terrible accident occurred last Tuesday morning, a few miles above Keyser, in which three men lost their lives and one is lying in a critical condition. The dead are D. W. Eagle, a well known business man, a farmer, a sawmill man and interested in many other enterprises around here; John Smith, aged 20 years; and John Gray. The injured man is Jos Boyce, who has a leg and arm broken and hurt about the back, and it is feared that he too, will die. Mr Eagle's son was also with the men, but escaped injury. The men were starting an old saw mill that had not been run for some time. In some way the boiler exploded. Smith was killed outright, Mr. Eagle died just as they reached the hospital with him, and Gray died the next morning. Eagle was crushed about the head and chest. Two other men were standing near, but both escaped without injury. Olin, Mr. Eagle's oldest son, was standing within a few feet of his father. Alex Shears, the fireman, who escaped, says there was only forty pounds of steam in the boiler at the time. They were all standing together watching one man lace a belt at the time. The men were all buried at the Duling church, Smith Wednesday, Gray Friday morning and Eagle yesterday afternoon. Mr Eagle was a member of the New Creek Council National Union, who had charge of the funeral, many of them attending. Services were conducted at his late home by Rev. A. P. Neel. Mr. Eagle was a native of Pendleton County, and was 49 years, 8 months old. He married Miss Annie E Burkhiser, who with two sons, Olin and James, survive. He leaves three brothers, George of New Creek and two in the west, and one sister, Mrs. Taylor Delay, of Petersburg.
