DAILEY, Benjamin

A telephone message from Moorefield, Monday evening about 8 o'clock conveyed the startling information that Benjamin Dailey, the well-known lawyer of that place was dead. His death occurred very suddenly, said to be from heart failure. He was here last Wednesday and Thursday on legal business and was apparently in his usual health. Mr. Dailey was the eldest son of the late Dr. R. W. Dailey, of this place, and a brother of Judge R. W. Dailey. He was private secretary to Gov. Jacobs during that gentleman's two terms as Chief Executive of the State. Following his retirement from that position he located at Moorefield and began the practice of law. He was widely known as an able lawyer, a sound thinker and a gentleman of dignity and courtesy of the true and genuine stamp. Mr. Dailey was married rather late in life to a Miss Randolph, who, with several children, survive him. His death came coincident with the State Reunion of ex-Confederate soldiers in Moorefield to which Mr. Dailey had looked forward with interest, he, himself having been very severely wounded, a ball passing directly through his body. The fact that his father, who was a surgeon in the army reached him a few hours after the wound was inflicted was responsible for his having survived. Mr. Dailey's death will be keenly regretted by all those whose good fortunes it was to known him. -Hampshire Review of 9th.

'In 1904 he was a member of Johnny Greene's Highlanders. The ball park was located in what is now known as Greene's addition. In 1905 interest in baseball was at an all-time high in the Tri-Towns and a team was organized to play in the Pennsylvania, Ohio and Maryland league, commonly referred to as P. O. M. A new park was erected on the island. It included the present park and adjoining land, now the site of homes on Maryland Avenue.A young fast ball pitcher was acquired by the team and he pitched the Piedmont team to a league victory that year. His name was Nick Maddox. Later he was acquired by the Pittsburgh Pirates and pitched for Detroit in the World Series. Maddox died at his home in Pittsburgh about a year ago.  Piedmont had two catchers in 1905, Johnny Ament and George Dailey. George was the outstanding catcher of the team and recognized as one of the best in the league. He was always paired with Nick Maddox and it was music to the fans' ears to hear the umpire announce: "Batteries for today's game, Maddox and Dailey...."

In 1906 he played with Springfield in the Central League and in 1907 with Butler and Charleroi. In 1909 he went to Memphis, Tenn and the following year played with Goldsboro, N. C. He concluded his career in professional baseball with Winston-Salem when he was struck in the hand with pitched ball in 1912.
George's ability to peg to second and to catch fouls before they hit the grandstand wire won for him high praise here in 1905. He was one of the few remaining members of a great local team"

DAILEY, Dr. G. T.

Dr. G. T. Dailey, one of the most widely known physicians in this section of the State, died unexpectedly Monday evening at the home of Mrs. Susan Pancake, four miles above Romney. Dr. Dailey, who has been in ill health for some time, was so far improved Sun as to drive out. Going to Mrs. Pancake's he decided to remain over night, being fatigued. Monday he got up, but had to go back to bed. Monday evening he was quite complaining and at his request Mrs. Pancake telephoned for Dr. Shull. The latter found him very weak but did not anticipate any immediate danger. About 6 o'clock he expired quite suddenly. Undertaker Racey prepared the remains for burial and brought the body down Monday night to the home of Miss Jennie Dailey, with whom he resided. The funeral will probably occur Wednesday. Dr. G. T. Dailey was prior to the time of his broken health an exceptionally successful physician, peculiarly able in his profession and widely read. No person was his enemy. Everyone who knew him and especially those who consulted him will regret most sincerely his death.

DAILY, Mr.; also DYSE

Two men killed, two so badly injured that they are not expected to recover, and seven others severely hurt, is the total result of a bad freight wreck which occurred Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock two miles east of Pearre, on the Western Maryland Railroad. The dead: Fireman Dyse, of Hagerstown, whose body was recovered from the wreck; Brakeman Daily, of Hagerstown, body still under wreckage. Of the injured who are so badly scalded that they are hardly expected to live are Engineer J. C. Kneisley and Fireman J. P. Hess.  Two engines, nineteen loaded cars and nine empty cars are piled up down a deep gully, the wreck being one of the worst freight mixups ever experienced by the road. Failure of Operator Haag, at Pearre, to deliver a train order is said to have been the cause. It was a head on collision on what is known as Cohill Siding, about 42 miles east of Cumberland. All the injured are members of the train crews. It will take several days to clear up the wreckage.

DANIEL, Walter

Mr Walter Daniel, son of H F Daniel, died at the home of his father last Wednesday night in the twenty second year of his age. He was taken ill Monday night, caused by eating oysters that had a disease germ in them, later a link formed in the bowel, resulting in intestine paralysis. Three skilled physicians were in attendance, but were unable to give relief. Funeral services were held in Short Gap Church this forenoon and the body buried at Frankfort. His mother died about one year ago. His father, one brother and three sisters survive him, and they have a sympathy of a large circle of true friends. Death is always sad, but it was unusually sad in this instance when it claimed a young man with so many friends and bright prospects.

DARNLEY, James

Prisoner Identified ~ Man Held at Greensburg Shown to be Murderer
Greensburg, Pa - Apr 3 - Exclaiming 'There is the murderer of my father!', George Darnley 19 years old, caused the arrest late last night of Nick Kremer, a Radebaugh Austrian.  Last March 17, James Darnley, his son, George, James Neilson and John Proctor all of Hempfield Slope, one mile East of Greensburg were held up along the Pennsylvania railroad tracks at midnight by three foreigners.  A battle ensued and the Hempfield men were getting the better of the battle when one the foreigners in retreating fired four shots.  One ball struck James Darnley in the groin and he died the next day.  Soon after the shooting, a bareheaded man appeared at the Darnley home and asked for a hat.  Darnley's daughter was frightened and closed the door in the man's face.  She today identified the man under arrest as the one who had been at her home on the night of the murder.  (Unreadable) Kremer, alleged to be one of the trio, was captured on the night of the holdup.  He is a brother of the suspect taken last night and is still in jail.  John Proctor identified both men positively today and declared Nick Kremer was the one who fired the fatal shot.

DARR, John

While at work in Washington Mine No. 5, Piedmont and Georges Creek Coal Co., at Franklin, Tuesday morning about ten o'clock, John Darr, aged 18 years, of Westernport, was instantly killed, and Raymond Wilson, aged 25 years, was probably fatally injured by a fall of a roof rock. The men were employed as coal miners and were working together when without warning a large section of the roof came down pinioning them to the bottom. Fellow workmen succeeded after a time in removing the debris and found that Darr had been killed outright and Wilson seriously injured.  Wilson's home is near Moorefield, W. Va., while Darr resided with his parents in Westernport. Both are unmarried. It was necessary to use a railroad jack to lift the rock, weighing several tons, which held down the men. The men were working in a room. The accident happened directly in front of State Mine Inspector William Walters, who took charge of the rescue.

DARRAH, Charles

MEYERSDALE, Feb. 2 - Word was received here last Friday of the serious illness of Charles Darrah of Akron, Ohio. His brother, John Darrah, and sister, Mrs. Catherine Crowe, left at once for his bedside, arriving just a few hours before he passed away at 6:10 Saturday morning following an operation for appendicitis.  Mr. Darrah was very well-known here where he was born and reared. When quite a young man he took up operating, but later was employed as brakeman on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, where he met with an accident which caused him to lose his right foot. Following this he returned to operating for the same company which he continued to do until the boom came on at Akron when he, with his family, moved to that city where they resided ever since.The body will be brought here for burial, but the time is not known as his son, Edward, is in Los Angeles, CA, and the funeral party will not leave Akron until his arrival. Twenty-five years ago Mr. Darrah was united in marriage to Miss Tillie Liberty of Berlin, who, with three sons and three daughters, survives. The following brothers and sisters also survive: John Darrah, Mrs. Clarence Crowe, and Mrs. Elizabeth Darrah of Meyersdale and Mrs. John Carey of Somerset.
