LOCKE, Patrick

DIES OF STROKE
Mine Superintendent's Funeral Services Set For Monday
Patrick Locke, one of the pioneers of the Fayette County Coke Region and regarded as a father of Leith Works where for many years he was superintendent, died at 3:25 a. m. Friday, February 22, 1929, in St. Francis Hospital, Pittsburgh, of a final stroke of paralysis. Three other strokes had been suffered by Mr. Locke, the first in 1922 which caused his retirement from his duties with the corporation. Mr. Locke was born In Barton, Md., a son of John and Ann Nevin Locke. He came to Fayette county as a 'young man and was first located in the Connellsville district. Leith first heard of Mr. Locke in 1882 when as transportation boss he made an initial record for himself there. In 1896 he had gone through the successive steps and was the company's mine foreman. In 1902 he became superintendent and remained in that capacity until his retirement. Mr. Locke was a charter member of the Youghiogheny Council Knights of Columbus and one of its early Grand Knights. Later he transferred his membership to Uniontown Council. For many years he participated in the sessions of The Coal Mining Institute of America and often was on its programs. He was one of the early members of the Frick Veterans Association. Mr. Locke was complimented many times by company officials because of his interest in the humanitarian policies of the corporation. Ho was one of the first, to organize first aid teams for his mines and succeeded in reducing accidents to a normal figure long before serious attention had been paid to conservation of life and limb by national interests. The Frick garden contests also occupied his attention and the miner with the neatest lawn and flower patch or the best arranged garden was certain to be on the superintendent's favored list when it came to employment or promotion. Mr. Locke married Elizabeth Jane Doonan of Dunbar on June 23, 1887. His wife preceded him in death. He Is survived by one son. John D. Locke, and one daughter, Miss Patricia Locke of the Uniontown High school faculty. A brother. John of Fairmont, also survives. Three grandsons. William. James Hever and Thomas Locke, also survive. The body was brought to the Lock family home. 65 Jefferson street, last evening. Funeral services will be conducted Monday with solemn requiem high mass In St. John's R C. church at 9 o'clock. Interment will be in Oak Grove cemetery.

LOGSDON, Enoch

STRUCK BY AUTOIST; DIES OF INJURIES
Enoch Logsdon, of Eckhart, Victim of Cruel Driver, Who Sped Away from Scene
Frostburg, Md., Dec. 1 - The automobilist who strikes down a pedestrian and speeds away, leaving his victim unconscious and bleeding along the road, claimed his third victim last night when Enoch Logsdon, 62 years old, a retired miner of Eckhart, succumbed to injuries at his home. Logsdon was found about 8:30 o'clock Thursday night on the National pike, near Kelly's pump, unconscious and bleeding. How he met his injuries are unknown, but indications were that he had been hurled to the roadway by a speeding automobile. Logsdon had left his home at 7:30 o'clock to visit some friends. He was removed to Miners' Hospital and Friday morning apparently had recovered and was removed to his home. Friday night he suffered a relapse and a physician was summoned. He never rallied and death ensued Sunday night. It is stated he apparently suffered internal injuries and a severe blow to his head. He is survived by two sons, William Logsdon, of Detroit, Mich., and Owen Logsdon, of Eckhart, and a daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth Walsh. He is also survived by one brother, James Logsdon, and a sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Campbell, both of Eckhart. He was well and favorably known and until ten years ago had followed the occupation of a miner. The funeral will probably take place Wednesday, with burial in Eckhart Cemetery. He was a member of the Eckhart Baptist Church.

The State's Attorney's office today continued to probe circumstances surrounding the death of 64-year-old Harris Grover Lowery, Corriganville, who was found lying unconscious along the B. and O. tracks at Corriganville early, last Thursday morning. Lowery, who failed to regain consciousness after he was discovered by railroad employes, died Sunday at 8:05 a. m. in Memorial Hospital where he was taken by State Police. Dr. H. V.

LUDWICK, James Edlin

James Edlin Ludwick died May 23, 1912, aged 24 years, 10 months and 22 days. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Ludwick. He was kicked in the stomach by a horse on Wednesday, about noon, and died Thursday morning near seven o'clock. He leaves to mourn their loss his father and mother and two sister, Misses Otie and Cora. He was very much loved by his family, and was very true, good boy to his parents, and sisters. He will be greatly missed by his many associates, as his familiar voice and kindness were an inspiration to everyone.
These mysterious dealings of Providence in taking away from our homes those whom we love most is beyond our comprehension, but "Sometime We'll Understand" as not a "sparrow falls to the ground without our Father's notice." Funeral services were held in Blake Chapel church by Rev J. W. Bedford. A conservative estimate of the crowd of persons that attended the funeral services was seven hundred. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. The pallbearers were his six cousins, Henry L., Earl A., Wesley A., Herschel G., Thomas B., and Lewis W. Duling. The flower bearers were Blanche, Bernice, Kate, Carrie, Grace and Zennie Duling, cousins of the deceased. F. C. Rollman was undertaker.

LUDWICK, James A.

The funeral services of James A. Ludwick at Hartmonsville last Sunday was largely attended by friends from this place. As has been noted in the papers he was kicked in the stomach by a stallion in a stable at Arch Biggs' near Cross, May 25. He suffered but little and was planning to be out again in a few days. The stomach and intestines no doubt were paralyzed by the powerful stroke. A physician was called but could do nothing. Death came suddenly the morning of the 26th. Rev J. W. Bedford preached the funeral sermon, assisted by Rev D B Arnold. The unfortunate young man was nearly 25 years old, and the son of Edward Ludwick. An unusually large crowd attended the funeral.

LUDWIG, Pauline

Oakville Pa, Dec 3, 1912.
Dear Editor,   I take this method to inform our friends of the sudden departure of our little Pauline, a little over three years old. Membranous croup was the dreaded disease that claimed her. At 12:20 on Thanksgiving day, we gave her good-bye. she was conscious until within a few minutes of the end, and we believe she knew she was going away. Her intellectual and devotional faculties were wonderfully developed for her years.   For several weeks before the end came, she was much given to prayer and reading her little Bible (in her childish way), and repeatedly inquired of her mother when she would die and go to heaven. We should have been warned and prepared but we were not. My own illness prevented me from her presence during her suffering and could not see her laid to rest. I am some better at this writing.  To all who remembered us so kindly with letters of sympathy, we return our thanks.

LYBARGER, Mrs. Amelia Crum

Mrs. Amelia C. Lybarger, mother of General E. L. Lybarger, died at their home in Spring Mountain Thursday evening at 7 o'clock. She had been gradually sinking from the infirmities of old age and other ailments and her demise was not unexpected. About two years ago Mrs. Lybarger suffered from a hard fall and fractured a hip, since which time she has been partially crippled and was confined to her bed the last two months. The immediate cause of death was senile gangreen with resulting blood poison. The end was peaceful and she passed from earth in sweet, child-like sleep. Amelia Crum Lybarger was born at Winchester, Va. in 1813, and had reached the ripe old age of 89 years. Her father, Lewis Crum, migrated with his family to Ohio in 1820, and was one of the early settlers of Wayne county, Ohio. The ancestors of Mrs. Lybarger were among the first settlers of Virginia. Both her paternal and maternal grandfathers were Revolutionary soldiers. The entire family connection was closely affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal church, and Mrs. Lybarger herself a faithful member of that denomination for more than 70 years. She was married in 1837 to James T. Lybarger, who died in 1864. Since the war of the Rebellion she has made her home with her son, E. L. Lybarger, who is her only surviving child, where she received every care and comfort that loving hands and hearts could minister. Funeral services will be held at the residence Saturday morning at 8 o'clock, and the remains will be taken to Danville cemetery and laid to rest in the family lot there.

Those left to mourn her departure are as follows: Miss Nora at home; Mrs.Cora {Lybarger) Shoup at home; Mrs. Lora Pearl Stouffer at Ellerslie, Md.; eight grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends. She united with the Lybarger Lutheran church at Madley in her early years and was a faithful member of the church and of the Home Department of the Sunday School connected with the same church. About two years ago she became afflicted with an incurable disease and was a terrible sufferer, but she bore it if with patience and always greeted her friends (which are legion) with a friendly word and a smile. While in health she was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand where it was needed. She will be greatly missed in the home, church and community in which she lived.
