STOTTLEMEYER, Andrew Jackson

A. J. Stottlemyer, living near Hancock, was struck by P. & R. engine No. 540 in the Western Maryland yard in this city at 12:20 o'clock today and died in a few minutes afterward at the train dispatcher's office, where he was taken. Both legs and his right arm were severed and his body badly mangled. When picked up he had a silver dollar in his hand, which he held until he died. Mr. Stottlemyer came here this morning to attend to his pension papers and had gone to the railroad to take a train for home. He boarded the noon train from Baltimore pulling into the yard, and jumped off. The engine was moving slowly and the engineer claims he did not see Mr. Stottlemyer, who failed to observe or hear the engine. His mangled remains were placed on a stretcher and removed to the train dispatcher's office, where he died in a few minutes. Dr J. McP. Scott, the company's physician, was summoned, but found it impossible to be of any service. It was not known who the injured man was until his pockets were searched and the pension papers found. The railroad officials notified Justice Hoffman, who then made an investigation. It is thought his death was purely accidental. Mr. Stottlemyer was aged about 60 years and lived a few miles from Hancock. He leaves a large family. His body was forwarded to Hancock that evening.

STOTTLEMYER, Joseph B.

Cumb Times of 4th
Hon Joseph B Stottlemyer, one of the most prominent and best known man in the county, died Sat morning at 11 o'clock at his late residence near Little Orleans, and was buried yesterday in the Catholic cemetery at the latter place. The deceased died very suddenly. He was seated in a chair reading a newspaper, when the newspaper was noticed to drop to the floor and when a member of the family picked the paper up and handed it back to him, he made no effort to take it, when it was discovered that he was dead. The deceased was at one time one of the most prominent Republican politicians in the county and held his district in the hollow of his hand, as he could always bring a delegation from that district to the county convention that would vote as he wanted to. The deceased was elected to the Md Legislature on the Republican ticket in 1891, and again in 1893. He was tax collector for the three lower districts in 1874-5-6-7 and again for the years 1884-5-6-7, having been appointed by the Board of County Commissioners.

The little cab is empty now
The little clothes laid by
A mother's hope, a father's joy
In death's cold arms doeth lie.
Go little pilgrim to thy home
On yonder blissful shore;
We miss thee here, but soon will come
Where thou hast gone before.
