KIGHT, Edward
CONDRY, James
BLANTT, Joseph
HAMILTON,William

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT WASHINGTON MINE No. 5
Three Men Killed and Thirteen Others Injured by Collision on Incline Early This Morning - Two of Latter May Die
MEN WERE GOING UP PLANE TO WORK
Special to the Times
Westernport, Md., Jan. 25 - A dreadful accident occurred at 6:30 o'clock this morning at Washington Mine No. 5 of the Piedmont and George's Creek Coal Co., near Franklin, Md., of which Mr. M. P. Fahey is superintendent, in which three men were killed instantly and thirteen others were badly, and one or two perhaps fatally injured.

The Killed
Jos. Blantt, Italian laborer
William Hamilton, blacksmith, of Franklin
James Condry, dumpman, of Franklin
The Injured
Kirk, a brakeman on the mine electric motor, injured in the arm and chest. He resides at Barton and will recover.
Edward Kight, carpenter, injured seriously about the head.
John and Louis Tucci, Italian laborers. Joseph hurt about the head, Louis in the legs and chest.
L. C. Lambert
, leg broken; resides at Reb's station, near Westerport.
W. H. Smith, weightmaster, shoulder blade broken and injured in the back; resides at Reb's station.
James Gowan, laborer, face cut; resides at Barton.
George Hamilton, miner, face cut; resides at Franklin.
Ed Frazenbaker, roadsman, hurt about arm; resides at Westernport.
Thomas Murphy, fireman, eyes and back injured.
Escaped Injury
Earnest Phillips and Clarence McAllister, both of Franklin, escaped injury. Murphy was on the descending loaded cars; the others were all on the ascending empties. None of the cars were thrown from the track by collision.
How it Happened
As stated, the accident happened on the incline plane during the first trip of the day. The ascending cars are always empty and they meet the descending loads at an automatic switch half way up the incline. Here, of course, if the switch is properly set, they pass each other, keep to the track to the right and there is seldom any difficulty in passing. William Stowell, a lad sixteen or seventeen years old, is charged with setting the switch, and it is thought that in some way he neglected to perform his duty properly and hence the trips collided while going at a high speed.
The men were all riding up the incline on their way to work in or about the mines.
Condry and Blantt were killed instantly. Hamilton died at 8:30 o'clock this morning. Father Quinn, of Barton, and Scarpatti, of Morantown, were quickly on the scene.
Store Turned Into Hospital
The injured in the mine accident have all been taken to Gannon's store at Franklin, which has been turned into a temporary hospital. All the physicians of Piedmont and Westernport are in attendance.
Kight Has Since Died
Since the above story was written Mr. Edward Kight has died. Mr. L. C. Lambert and the three Italians who were seriously injured were taken to the Hoffman Hospital at Keyser. Mr. Kight died at 12:20. The others who were injured were taken to their homes, none of whom were seriously injured.
Mr. Lambert and the three Italians were reported in a critical condition at 4 o'clock.

John Kight, of Trotter, Killed Between Cars
Fellow Workmen See Accident Impending, but Do Not Realize Its Gravity, - When They Go To Rescue Victim Is Found To Be Dead
Coroner To Investigate
Caught between an empty and a loaded pit car i the Trotter mines yesterday while perfoming another's uty, John Kight, aged 62 (?52), for 15 years boss driver in the Trotter mines and for about 25 years an employe at the mines, was killed. His abdomen and chest were so crushed that death was instant. When one of the loaded cars that was slowly drifting towards the bottom of the shaft was thrown off the track as the line of cars hit the heavy wire rope that had fallen across the mine track, Kight attempted to get the car back on the track. He hust had taken hold of the car when it was hit by the other cars that drifted slowly in that direction. That contact threw the car against which Kight was pushing, almost half way across the track and crushed him against the side of an empty dcar standing on the adjoining track. Several men, who had worked with Kight for a number of years, were witnesses of the accident, but it hajppened so quickly that they were unable to render assistance., The cars were running so slowly that they did not believe that the crash was sufficient to place the car in the shape that it did. They saw the life crushed out of Kight and went to his assistance immediately. When the cars were lifted to one side, Kight's lifeless body dropped to the ground. A physician was called but his services were not necessary. The remains were removed to Stader's(?) morgue in Connellsville and will be taken to Piedmont, W. Va. for interment. A boy had been employed in the mines to watch the cars in case of an accident such as occurred yesterday, but for some unknown reason Kight did not wait for the boy to perform the duties assigned to him. Coroner Harry J. Bell was notified of Kight's death and after an investigation decided to hold an inquest, the date of which has not been set. The following members of the coroner's jury was selected by Coroner Bell: J. L. Evans, W. F. Shotts, W. J. Baer, H. G. Berlin, J. G. German and I H. Prinker.

KILROY, Mrs Mary, wife of Thomas &
KILROY, Mrs. Mary, mother of Thomas


Fate has dropped a fell hand upon Thomas Kilroy, miner, and his family, of Meyersdale, according to reports received here. Kilroy's wife died. Then he followed his mother to her grave. When he returned from the second funeral, he found his infant daughter, painfully, perhaps fatally, burned. Kilroy himself was injured badly by a fall down the stairs of his home. Lockjaw is feared.
Kilroy is about 40 years old. He was employed at the mines around Meyersdale and worked steadily until a short time ago. About 15 years ago, Kilroy was married. Seven children came to him and his wife, Mary, their ages range from 14 to 5 years. When October's chill winds killed the leaves, they wafted death into the Kilroy cottage. Mrs. Kilroy sickened and died. The seven children were cared for by Mrs. Mary Kilroy, the bereaved man's mother. Again death stalked into the stricken home. The grandmother lay on her bed, one night, never to rise. She was buried last week, not far from the new grave of her daughter-in-law. From his mother's funeral, Kilroy went home to find his youngest girl severely burned on the body. As he stood in the cemetery, she had played near the cook stove. Her clothing caught fire. The other children had beaten out the flames in time to save their sister from death. Kilroy was distracted. Work was lacking and he hunted for a place to earn bread for his children and himself. He came back, sick, a few nights ago, and two of the children helped him to bed. He arose in the night, wandered to the stairway, and fell down. Moaning, he was picked up by his children and assisted to bed. The he lapsed into unconsciousness. The children, thought, for the greater part of a day, their father was asleep. When evening came and he did not rise as usual, they became alarmed. Word was sent to neighbors, and inquiry revealed that Kilroy was hurt severely. His jaws set a day later as if lockjaw had attacked him. A doctor was summoned. He opened Kilroy's mouth, allaying the first fear of tetanus. Kilroy's mind is affected, it is said. He has not been able to tell definitely how his plunge down the stairway occurred. Neighbors are caring for Kilroy and his children. Food, fuel, clothing and bedding have been supplied.

MOUNT STORM  April 18, 1911 - Andrew Kimble, the noted teamster and a very aged man, was found dead yesterday along the road near Difficult bridge. He was hauling a load of ties and it is supposed he was sleeping when the wagon ran off the road, and upset, throwing the cross ties on Mr. Kimble and mashing him to death. The sad news was such a shock to his daughter, who kept house for him that she broke down completely. Besides the daughter at home, the deceased had two sons living near Oakland and a married daughter living in Pennsylvania.

A Remarkable Old Lady Borne to Her Final Resting Place
The funeral of Mrs. John Kirby, whose death occurred at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Mary Fitzgerald, near Vale Summit, Wednesday morning, as noted in the Times, took place yesterday morning from St. Michael's church at Frostburg. The interment was in the cemetery connected with that church. The following were pall bearers: Michael O'Rourke, Michael Sullivan, James Scally, Henry Kain, Michael Condon and Thomas Condon. Mrs. Kirby was a very old lady and was at the time of her death one of the oldest, if not the oldest, woman in Allegany County, being ninety-one years of age. For sixty-three years she had been a resident of this county. She not only had a large relationship, but an extensive acquaintance throughout this section. A remarkable thing about this venerable old lady was that at the time of her death she had forty-eight grand children and thirty-five great grandchildren, all of whom are living. In addition to this she was the mother of two sons and six daughters, all of whom survive her excepting one daughter, Mrs. K. Cordial, who died about a year ago. The surviving children all live in this county excepting the oldest daughter, who resides in Minnesota. The esteem in which the deceased was held was attested by the large concourse of friends in attendance at the obsequies.

KITZMILLER, Shirley Lee Sines

Housewife, 19, is Victim in Lake Drowning
Shirley Kitzmiller Dies at Deep Creek
A 19-year-old housewife from Mt. Lake Park drowned yesterday afternoon in six feet of water in Deep Creek Lake. Mrs. Shirley Lee Kitzmiller, daugther of Mr. and Mrs. George Sines, Swallow falls, reported lost hold of an innertube she had been clinging to about 15 feet from shore. She could not swim. Trooper Ronald Lewis of the State Police, who investigated the drowning, said Mrs. Kitzmiller and her younger sister, Patsy Sines, 12, were both on the innertube when the wake from one or more nearby motorboats apparently caused them to become seperated from it. Delmas Sines, 18, a brother, spotted the pair and swam first to aid Patsy, who also could not swim. He was able to pull her to shore, but an attempt to save Mrs. Kitzmiller was unsuccessful. The body was not recovered for about 30 minutes, and resuscitation attempts with an oxygen inhalator were of no avail. The drowning oaccurred at 1 p.m. about two miles east of Swallow Falls near the Sines residence. Mrs. Kitzmiller was born in Swallow Falls and was a member of Loch Lynn Church of God.  She is survived by her husband, Arthur; six sisters, Mrs. June Holtschneider, Deer Park, Mrs. Agnes Paugh and Mrs. Janet Callas, both of Mt. Lake Park, Mrs. Sue Riley, Pleasant Valley, and Misses Dorothy and Patricia Sines, at home; five brothers, James, stationed with the Army in Germany, Lawrence, Swallow Falls, Robert, Terra Alta, Dean, Pleasant Valley and Delmas, at home.  The body is at the Minnick Funeral Home where friends will be received today from 7 to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m.   A service will be conducted Friday at 2 p.m. at the funeral home by Rev.

KITZMILLER, Stephen

ELK GARDEN NEWS - A most distressing and fatal case of burning occurred on Nethken Hill last Monday. Stephen, son of Mr. and Mrs. U. Grant Kitzmiller, aged 4 years, 3 months and 13 days, was burned to death in a small stable. He went into the stable to play with some pups which was a usual pastime for him. When the fire was discovered the stable was in full flame. The alarm was raised but nothing could be done to stay the flames until the body was burned and charred beyond recognition. It is supposed the hay was ignited by a match. The funeral services were preached by Rev. L. C. Messick, and the interment was on Atlantic Hill in the burying ground on Frank Junkin's.

KNEPPER, Rev. Benjamin

Rev. Benjamin Knepper, the oldest minister in the Pittsburg Synod of the Reformed Church, died Tuesday evening at 7:15 o'clock at the home of his son-in-law, Rev. J. H. Heller, No. 104 East Green street. The funeral services will take place from the Reformed Church at the corner of South Pittsburg and Green streets this evening at 7.30 o'clock. Rev. J. L. Steckel, pastor of the Reformed Church of Greensburg, and Rev. C. R. Ferner, pastor of the Scottdale Reformed Church, will officiate. The remains will be taken to Berlin, Somerset county, Thursday morning on B & O train No. 48, arriving in Connellsville at 8.50 A. M. Services will be conducted at Berlin by Rev. King of Somerset, Rev. Cramer of Hyndman, and Rev. Truxall of Meyersdale. Deceased was the son of John and Anna Knepper and was born on a farm at Berlin, September 10, 1816. He was of German descent, his ancestors being of the pioneer settlers of Somerset county, having settled there over a century ago. His early education was received in the public school at Berlin. He received his theological training under Rev. William Conrad, a former pastor of the Berlin Reformed Church. In 1850 he was ordained as a minister, his first charge being at Wellersburg, where he was pastor of the Reformed Church for 55 years. His entire ministerial life was spent there. He spent 18 months of his life in the Western States. At an early age Rev. Knepper married Miss Catherine Hay of Berlin. Two children were born to the union. Miss Sophia Knepper, deceased, and Mrs. Anna Heller, living. After serving 50 years as pastor of the Wellersburg Church, which was composed of four charges, Rev. Knepper was still retained to supply the Wellersburg congregation for five years, making his entire ministry 55 years. Sixteen years ago Rev. Knepper celebrated his golden wedding anniversary. The affair was one of the greatest events of the kind ever held in Somerset county, many persons being present from a distance. Sunday three weeks ago Rev. Knepper celebrated his 89th birthday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Anna Heller. The celebration was a very quiet one, only the near relatives being present. At his retirement from the ministry, the ministers of the various classes tendered Rev. Knepper a grand public reception, over a thousand persons being present. During his ministry he baptized over 2,000 persons. After resigning from the ministry he was elected pastor emeritus, allowing him the privilege of baptizing and performing marriage ceremonies.
Deceased has made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Heller, since last October. His death was not unexpected; for the past year he has been in feeble health, being confined to his room the greater part of that time. Death was caused by the infirmities of old age. Deceased was highly respected and esteemed by all who knew him. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Katherine Knepper, and one daughter, Mrs. Anna M. Heller, of Connellsville.
