WELSH, Bryan

"Sad Death-Mr. Bryan Welsh, an old and respected citizen of Piedmont, was killed here last Sunday morning, August 7, 1904.  Mr. Welsh, who was 65 years of age, had been for a number of years watchman for the B & O railroad, and was stationed a short distance west of Piedmont, along the river just opposite the pulp mills. It seems that a freight car was being taken down the side-track, next the river that morning and at the time the pulp mill was blowing off the steam from its boilers, which obscured his sight, and he thought the noise he heard was from a train on the south track. The train struck him and a car passed across his body, but did not sever it. He was born in Ireland, but had spent nearly all his life at Piedmont. He is survived by five children, Misses Mary Ellen and Bridget and Messrs. Thomas, James and Joseph, all of whom are single and reside at home. Mr. Welsh spent his life in the service of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad and assisted to build the Philadelphia branch. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place Tuesday from St. Peter's Catholic church, Rev. Thos. E. Gallagher officiating. The pallbearers were John Kirk, Thomas Boyles, Michael Walsh, Patrick Codire, Patrick Malone and John Faherty. Among those who attended the funeral from out of town were his brother, Mr. Richard Welsh, and wife, Mr. Thomas J. Welsh and Miss Della Thornton, of Baltimore; Mr. John Welsh and two sons, Thomas and Richard, of Pittsburgh; Mr. Thomas Lee and wife Pand Mr. John Lee and wife, of Cumberland. Mr. Thomas Welsh, son of the deceased, is quite ill with typhoid fever."

WELTNER, E. S.

Mrs. Cora Parker Welton, wife of A. J. Welton, died Friday morning between four and five o'clock at her home in Petersburg, after an illness of several months. The deceased was the daughter of A. J. and M. E. Parker, was born in June, 1871, was married in December, 1892, to A. J. Welton, who is well known throughout this section as an attorney. She is survived by her husband and four children, Kathleen, William, Wayne and Ralph. The funeral services were conducted from her late home on Saturday morning by her pastor, and the interment followed in the Petersburg cemetery. The following is the tribute of a friend to her character.

The citizens of Keyser were startled early Tuesday morning when it was announced that E. S. Weltner, engineer of the Keyser Electric Light Plant, had taken his life in his own home, corner Piedmont and Mineral Streets, that morning at five thirty o'clock. Mrs. Weltner was on the first floor preparing breakfast and when it was ready went to the second floor to call Mr. Weltner to the meal; before she reached the top of the stairway, she saw the trail of blood leading to the bathroom where she found the lifeless body of her husband. He had cut his throat with a razor and so deep were the two gashes made that death must have ensued within a very few minutes. He had been talking with his wife on the first floor about ten or fifteen minutes before the lifeless body was found. Mr. Weltner was about 32 years of age. he had been connected with the electric Plant here for several years; was a first class business man and well liked. He came here from Logan, Ohio, and his body was taken to that place Thursday, where he will be buried today. His wife, who survives with three small children, is a daughter of Moses Woltz, of Lancaster, O. he was a member of the Knights of the Mystic Chain Modern Woodmen of America, and order of Eagles. It had been noticed that Mr. Weltner had been in a depressed mental condition for some time. One of the babies put out an eye during the holidays and that preyed upon his mind, since then he had been threatened with appendicitis and dreaded an operation which his physician told him that he must undergo shortly. The night before the tragedy he was restless and visited the plant several times. He had a revolver which he handled so suspiciously that one of the men took the shells out when he was not watching. The most profound sympathy is felt for his wife.

WELTON, Mrs. Cora Parker

The most beautiful thing in this beautiful world is that God has made for us is a beautiful character. In the midst of a whole garden of beautiful flowers there occasionally meets our gaze one of more striking beauty than the rest. There is some reason for this. there have been forces at work that have produced this result. Elements have entered into the growth and development of this particular flower, that have rendered it of unusual beauty. We are interested in this fact, and we endeavor to learn, if may be, what has wrought the changes necessary to so splendid a consummation. And so it is when we see in the midst of men a character of striking beauty, we long to know how it came to be. So it is in the case of the subject of this sketch. Off all the elements that are necessary to the possession of a character of real beauty, one thing is certain, there must be unselfishness. No matter how fully one may be endowed with the strong and stern qualities of will and mind, if these gifts are used for the advancement and glorification of self, all their beauty is lost. Unselfishness must be the foundation stone upon which a true character is built. It may be said of our friend that she possessed the characteristic of unselfishness to a most marked degree. her supreme thought seems to have been for others. It is doubtful if anyone can recall a single instance in which she gave evidence of having taken special thought for herself. She was passionately devoted to her home and the duties that fell upon her as a wife and mother, and gave herself to them with an intensity that is rarely equaled. this unselfishness was responsible for certain other qualities that adorned her life. She was gentle, tactful, considerate, and patient to a degree. All these admirable marks of character, she seems to have received from the Giver of good and perfect gifts at an early age, no one knew her who was impressed with them. And yet God determined as we now see, to show what he could to further enrich an already beautiful life. God's process for beautifying is usually one of fire. By this means he adds the Christian graces to hose of nature. In this case he had determined to bestow them to a marvelous degree. "Faith, hope, love" says the apostle - "these three". Those who visited her sick room both saw and felt the development of each of these in her shut in life. They saw her faith in God's goodness and wisdom glow brightly as her should was heated in the crucible of affliction. She received with calmness the manifest will of God, and constantly crying out for strength, said with firmness "Thy will, oh Go, be done." "The trying of her faith being much more precious than that of gold that perisheth -though it was proved by fire, was found unto praise and glory and honor." As the billows rolled higher and higher and the waters of eternity began to flow into her soul, she seemed to cling more and more lovingly to the promises of God, and there seemed to be revealed to those around her some silent message, from the eternal world, to which she was hastening. "The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want," those words were constantly upon her lips. "Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil", the words of this precious bit of truth were verily the rod and staff that comforted her in the hour of darkness. And surely God was with her to the end. As faith grew, hop grew and manifested itself in her perfect willingness, yea anxiety, to go and be with Him who is the ground of all our hope. "Faith, hope and love, the greatest of these is love," and surely nothing could be greater than such a love as heres have the love of God who gave it. Even in the midst of pain and under the overhanging shadow of death, her thoughts were still of those about her, and even wandered out of the sick room and busied themselves with those who were sick or destitute everywhere. So far the past few months her life has been a marked one in this community, its influence has been felt by many. Her example has been a source of cheer and inspiration to her friend everywhere. And now God has taken this beautiful life, beautiful in the fires of affliction, from our midst. But her memory remains and lingering in our minds, will be a source of gratitude to God through many years, and God grant that it may help us in that time of our own sojourning in the region of the shadow. -Grant County Press.

Mrs. Welton died on Tuesday morning September 10th 1912 at 2 pm at the home of Misses Bettie and Fillie Welton at Moorefield, where she had spent the summer. Mrs. Welton was born in 1830 in Yorktown, Va., her maiden name being Sallie Nelson, she was a direct descendent of Thomas Nelson a prominent citizen in Virginia in Revolutionary days. She was the widow of the late Felix B. Welton, of Hardy county, who died in 1896. There survives her two step-daughters Fillie and Bettie Welton of Moorefield and five sons, Wm. N., Frank, Page and Cleland, of Hardy county, and Conway of Cumberland, Md. With the death of Mrs. Welton there passed from our community one of the most estimable and refined characters that it has ever known. A woman of God, loving and charitable to all. She lived a life that will be remembered and cherished by all who knew her. She lived her 80 odd years in such a way that when her end was near, she was able to “wrap the drapery of her couch about her, and lie down to pleasant dreams, A Christian, the wife of a minister, the mother of a large family of boys, a noble woman, she has gone to rest.

WERNER, Deena Rena

Asphyxiation was the cause yesterday morning of the death of a Frostburg infant who was pronounced dead on arrival at Miners Hospital, authorities said. Deena Rena Werner, six and a half months old, had caught her head between the mattress and side of her bed, they added. She was a daughter of Ronald J. and Salley E. (Pape) Werner of 50 Oak Street. The child was found by her mother about 11 a.m. Mrs. Werner took the baby in her arm, and attempted to revive the child by mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Mrs. Werner immediately contacted Mrs. Olive Thomas, Center Street, from whom the Werner family rents the home, and ran out into the street with the child. Alexander M. Rowe Jr., owner of the Rowe Home Improvements, Frostburg, who was working nearby, took the two women and the baby to the hospital. Mrs. Werner, concerned for the life of her baby, rushed out of the house without putting on her shoes. When they arrived at the hospital, the child was pronounced dead. An autopsy performed by the deputy county medical examiner's office indicated the child died of axphyxiation. The child was born on July 6, 1966. Besides her parents, she is survived by a brother, Ronald P. Werner, 4, at home, her maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Pape, Eckhart and her paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Myles Werner, Finzel. The body is at the Durst Funeral Home, Frostburg. Services will be conducted at the funeral home tomorrow at 1 p.m. Rev. J. Henry Kersch, assistant pastor of St. Michael's Catholic Church, will officiate. Interment will be in the Finzel Cemetery.

WERNER, Frederick

BORN AT SEIFERS HAUSEN
Eight Children Survive - Mrs. George Horchler, of Cumberland, Being One of Them-Leaves 48 Grandchildren and 22 Great-Grandchildren
The Rockwood Leader prints the following interesting sketch of the late Frederick Werner, who died at Finzel, Maryland, last Thursday morning at his home near Finzel, and ,just across Mason and Dixon's line. Frederick Werner, the eldest of a family of six Werner brothers, who in the early fifties of the century made America their adopted home, died, aged 80 years, 8 months and 20 days. Mr. Werner was born at Seifers Hausen in the district of Rotenburg, Germany. His father was Adam Werner and his mother's maiden name was Annie Catherine Sass. The father of Adam Werner was August Werner. With the rest of a numerous family young Frederick was reared to a life of unusual hardships. He, however, received the thorough schooling of the compulsory education system of Germany up to the age of 14. At the age of 18 he entered upon the three years' military service prescribed by the law of the Fatherland and when, in 1848 war broke out between Germany and Denmark, over the German Danish provinces of Schleswick Holstein, he was in line for real military service. After completing his military service he sailed for America, landing at Baltimore and working his way westward as far as Meyers Mill, now Meyersdale, where in 1852, he got permanent employment with Peter Meyers. Here he was soon joined by his brother, Henry, and together they earned the money required to bring across their parents and their four brothers: George, Christian, Paul and Conrad, all of whom settled down near Meyersdale. After them came at least a score of families of relatives who have scattered over the southeastern townships of Somerset county. Early in life Frederick Werner married Barbara Deist, who died last year. They had 9 children, eight of whom survive: William, Christian and Adam, of Finzel, Md.; Simon, of Meyersdale; Eliza, (Conrad) of New Castle, Pa.: Mary (Steinly) of Finzel, Md., Susan (Shockey) of Deal, and Mrs. Geo. Horchler, of Cumberland. He also leaves 48 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. Mr. Werner was a man of rare good judgment, conservative in his business exploits and universally successful. His plantation near Finzel originally comprised (four 1OO-acre State plots of fine agriculture land, which he later parceled out to his sons.) He had a most kindly disposition, was a devout member of the German Reformed Church and leaves to his offspring a rich legacy of a life lived for the attainment of the highest ideals. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place at the Greenville township Union church last Saturday, where Rev. Shupe, the Reformed pastor, paid a glowing tribute to the life of the departed.

WERNER, (John) Thomas

Mr. (John) Thomas Werner, who lives in Garrett county, near Flnzel, met with an accident on Wednesday that resulted in almost instant death. Mr. Werner was a young man, aged 22, and all his life he has been fond of hunting game, especially rabbits, and during the season spends much of his time in the woods hunting his favorite game. On Wednesday morning, with a companion, he started for the woods in the best of spirits, saying goodby to his wife and two small children, saying he would be gone the greater part of the day. After being in the woods for some time his dogs succeeded in driving a rabbit into a hole. Mr. Werner had set his gun against a small tree while he and his companion dug for the rabbit. When about to leave he reached for his gun, catching It by the muzzle, and pulled it toward him, and in doing so the hammer caught on a small limb, causing the gun to discharge Itself, the entire charge entering his neck, just below the jaw, and lodged in the brain, killing him instantly. He was a young man of good habits and highly respected in the community in which he lived. He is survived by bis wife and two children, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Adam Werner, and several brothers and sisters. The funeral will take place on Saturday. Interment will be made near Pocahontas in Garrett county.

WERNER, William

William Werner, of Mt. Savage, was found dead yesterday near a path crossing Little Savage Mountain, about three milea from Finzel, Garrett county. Mr. Werner, who lived in Mt. Savage, was employed as foreman of the fire clay mine of the Union Mining Company on Savage Mountain. He spoke of not feeling well while at work Saturday afternoon, and leaving the mining property about 5 o'clock told other workers that he intended going across the mountain to his farm, the Werner home place, near Pocahontas, Pa. There is a path leading across tho mountain from the mine toward Pocahontas. Mr. Werner's family, at Mt. Savago, expected him home Saturday night, but when he did not return, thought he had gone to the farm and would return early Sunday morning. Noting his continued absence Sunday, his family became alarmed and his son, Herbert Werner, and son-in-law. Wm. Norris, went across the mountain to look for him. Shortly before 2 o'clock, the young men came upon the body, lying by the side of the path on top of the mountain. The body was discovered shortly before that by Wm. Baker who lives near the Werner farm and was passing that way. The county officers were notified and the coroner, County Investigator Terrence Boyle and Deputy Sheriff David Mason went to the scene. An investigation showed there were no marks of violence on the body and no evidence of foul play. Mr. Werner's pocketbook, money, watch and other personal effects seemed not to have been disturbed. From the condition of the body and the fact that the weather was slightly above zero on the mountain top Saturday night, the officers opined that death was caused by exposure and freezing. The body was removed to the Durst undertaking establishment in Frostburg to be prepared for burial. Mr. Werner was 42 years old. He waa a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Christian Werner, of Pocahontas, Pa. He is survived by his widow who was a Miss Bayer (sic, Baer) of Pocahontas, and five children - Mrs. Wm. Norris; Herbert Werner, aged 16 years; Regis, aged 14; Kenneth, aged 10; and Helen, aged 2. He leaves two sisters—Mrs. John Arklin and Mrs. Joseph Clark, and one brother, Simon Werner, all residing at Pocahontas, Pa.
