Frostburg, Md., Jan. 19 - Arthur H. Layman, aged 22 years, son of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Layman, Layman's Farm near Wright's Crossing, and Burman Layman, Jr., aged 28 years, son of Mr. and Mrs. Burman Layman, Welsh Hill, cousins, are dead from injuries sustained in a head-on collision of their motorcycle with an auto driven by Samuel Rosenberg, Lonaconing, at 11:30 o'clock last night, on the Borden Shaft Hill road, three miles from here. Arthur Layman, driver of the motorcycle, was crusged about the abdomen and legs, and lived about five minutes after arrival at  Miners' Hospital. Burman Layman, riding in the side car, sustained a fracture of the skull, with an opening in his head large enough for a man's fist. He died instantly. Both, however, were brought to the hospital and later removed to the Durst undertaking rooms.
Samuel Rosenberg, aged 17 years, son of I. Rosenberg, a Lonaconing merchant, student of Central High school, driver of the automobile, is confined to his bed, suffering a nervous collapse. No one in the auto was injured. The other occupants were Misses Grace Dick, Althea Lewis, Adeline Fazenbaker, Hazel Johnson, Margaret Cutter, and Fannie Burt. All are suffering from shock.
Immediate investigation was made by Lieutenant M. A. Peppersack, of the State police, and young Rosenberg has been placed in the custody of his father until the coroner's inquest at Frostburg, when it will be determined who was responsible for the accident.
According to the story given out by the Rosenberg residence this morning, Samuel Rosenberg and six girls, several of whom were players on the C. H. S. basketball team, were returning from contest between Central and LaSalle Institute, Cumberland. Near the foot of the Borden Shaft Hill, on the State Road, occupants of the car called the driver's attention to an oncoming motorcycle without lights, on the left side of the road. Repeating the story as told to him by his son, I. Rosenberg in a statement this morning, said that before they had started up-grade, the motorcycle was upon them. In a last effort, Samuel swerved his car to the left of the road, hoping to avoid a crash.
The motorcycle drove through the radiator, throwing both men against the car. The Kelly-Springfield test car driven by John Morrissey, going in the direction of Frostburg, was the first on the scene of the accident and with but the lapse of a few moments was on the way to the hospital with the lifeless body of Burman Layman and badly mangled form of Arthur Layman.
It is reported that after clearing away the motorcycle wreckage, a half-filled bottle of liquor was found in the pocket of the side-car. Considerable difficulty was experienced in pulling the motorcycle from its tightly wedged mooring in the radiator.
James Marshall, taxi driver, towed the Rosenberg car to Lonaconing.
Arthur Layman and Burman Layman were employed at the Baltimore and Ohio reclamation plant in Cumberland, the former in the capacity of an acetylene welder, the latter as a craneman. Both rode to and from their homes on the motorcycle daily, usually making the trips between points at a high rate of speed. Reports are that only last evening on their return from work they were traveling at a rate between 60 and 70 miles an hour.
Burman Layman is survived by his parents, one brother and three sisters.
Arthur Layman is survived by his parents, three brothers and four sisters.
The death of the two young men makes the third in the famiily in the past 24 hours, their grandmother, Mrs. Susan Layman, aged 86 years, a resident of the National Road, west of Frostburg, having died at 8 o'clock yesterday morning.
Further investigation of the accident was made this afternoon by County Coroner Joseph B. Finan and State's Attorney William A. Huster at Frostburg. Hugh Moses, chauffeur for Hugh Atkinson, of Lonaconing, who was also driving a number of girls home from the basketball game in Cumberland last night, stated that he had passed the motorcycle at a point near the accident and due to the fact that there were no lights, was forced to run upon the street car tracks to avoid a collision.

I had two Mothers - two Mothers I claim. Two different people, yet with the same name.

Two separate women, diverse by design, but I loved them both because they were mine.

The first was the Mother who carried me here, gave birth and nurtured and launched my career.

She was the one whose features I bear, complete with the facial expressions I wear.

She gave me her love, which follows me yet, along with the examples in life that she set.

As I got older, she somehow younger grew, and we'd laugh as just Mothers and daughters should do.

But then came the time that her mind clouded so, and I sensed that the Mother I knew would soon go.

So quickly she changed and turned into the other, a stranger who dressed in the clothes of my Mother.

Oh, she looked the same, at least at arm's length, but now she was the child and I was her strength.

We'd come full circle, we women three, My Mother the first, the second and me.

And if my own children should come to a day, when a new Mother comes and the old goes away. I'd ask of them nothing that I didn't do.

Love both of your Mothers as both have loved you.

By—Joann Snow Duncanson

LAYMAN, Mrs. Mary Shuey
 
FROSTBURG — Mary (Shuey) Layman, 93, passed away at the Egle Nursing and Rehab Center on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013. At the request of the family, no service will be held at this time. Mary will be laid to rest beside her husband of 69 years in a private ceremony at Frostburg Memorial Park. The family will celebrate Mary’s life in a ceremony to be held later in the year. Mary was born in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, on Sept. 20, 1919 to William Valentine and Pearl "Bush" Shuey. Her family moved to Frostburg in 1931 and she lived here for the remainder of her life. Mary met her husband, Ralph Layman, while working at the "Old Colonial Inn" in Garrett County in 1940 and they were married on June 25, 1943. Mary was an active member of the Frostburg United Methodist Church, teaching Sunday school for over 30 years until her declining health no longer allowed it. She will be remembered for her happy and friendly disposition. She was employed at Prichard’s Hardware in Frostburg from the late 1960s until she retired in the 1980s. Her smiling face was the first thing you saw as you entered the store. She also was frequently seen having lunch with her sister, Doris Williams, in the first booth at the Princess Restaurant. Mary’s interests included music, reading and working crossword puzzles. She was the family historian and photographer. After Mary and Ralph retired, they enjoyed traveling with friends and spent many happy times at the beach in and around Wildwood, N.J. Declining health necessitated that Mary and Ralph move to the Egle Nursing home in 2007. Fortunately they were able to spend the remainder of their lives together at the home. Mrs. Layman was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 69 years, Ralph Layman. Siblings preceding her in death were brothers, William Shuey and Arthur Shuey; sisters, Alice Philips, Beatrice Race and Doris Williams. She is survived by her sons, Douglas and Kenneth Layman and wife Lyn; grandchildren, Mark Layman, Katherine Layman, Scott Layman, Stephen and Erynn Layman and Rebecca and JD Norman; two great-grandchildren, Hunter Layman and Clara Norman. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Alzheimer’s Charity of your choice.

LAYMAN, Miss Mazie

Woman Dies From Accident Injuries
Miss Mazie Layman, 77, Of Near Finzel, Struck By Car On Way to Church
Miss Mazie Layman, 77, of near Finzel, died late yesterday afternoon in Miners' Hospital, Frostburg, of injuries received Sunday morning when struck by a car while walking along the Finzel road to church.  She suffered fractures of both legs and cuts about the face and head.
No charges have been placed against Mrs. Howard D. Llewellyn, 23, of Dan's Mountain, near Midland who was the driver of the car which struck Miss Layman. States Attorney Neal C. Fraley of Garrett county, Dr. E. I. Baumgartner, deputy Garrett county medical examiner, and State Trooper A. M. Spioch are investigating. According to Spioch, Miss Layman and several children were walking along the road toward the intersection with Route 40 when the accident happened. The officer said a minister stopped his car across the road to offer them a ride to church.  The automobile of Mrs. Llewellyn was following close behind the first car, Spioch reported, and in order to avoid a crash, she turned sharply to pass the standing machine. As she turned her car, it struck Miss Layman who was starting across the road. A daughter of the late Daniel and Susan Layman, Miss Layman is the last member of her immediate family.  She lived for many years along Route 40 between Big and Little Savage mountains, but for the past several years had been residing with Mr. amd Mrs. Richard Burdock. The body has been taken to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Evan Layman, Route 40, about four milse west of Frostburg where funeral services will be held tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. with the Rev. Charlse Davis, pastor of Mt. Zion Methodist Church officiating, assisted by the Rev. Raymond Crowe, Pastor of Midland Methodist Church.  Interment will be in Mt. Zion Cemetery.

LAYTON, Joseph

GRANT COUNTY - On Friday, September 6th, Joseph Layton, the subject of our story seemed in his usual health, walking around all day and in the evening chopped some stove wood, something he had not done for several months, after which he ate a hearty supper, but shortly after eating while preparing to retire became very sick and about one half hour died. He was educated in the school of “hard knocks” being born May 26, 1824, when the chances for a book education were very meager and all of that kind of education that he was able to secure was just to read and write a little. His father was a native of eastern Virginia and his mother, whose maiden name was Mary Jenkins, was a product of western Virginia.  He made his home with his daughter, Mrs George R Borror, for a number of years. His second wife died about two years ago and now there are two vacant chairs. His remains were laid to rest by the side of his wife. Rev Stearn performed the last sad rights.
