FINN, James

Eastbound passenger train No 2, on the W. Va. Central division of the Western Md. Railroad, last Monday, ran down and instantly killed James Finn, an American, about three and one half miles east of Hendricks. Engineer C. H. Deffinbaugh saw the arm lying across the track, but he was too close upon him to stop the train. Finn was evidently asleep when struck by the engine. The forward wheels passed over his body, cutting him in twain but a portion of his clothing and suspenders caught on the sand pipe and he was dragged about 25 feet. The remains were place aboard the baggage car and taken to Thomas where they were prepared for burial. The dead man was about 30 years old.

FITZPATRICK,  William

Lonaconing Bureau of the Evening Times Lonaconing Md, Nov 19
The funeral of William Fitzpatrick, who died in a hospital at Cumberland last Mon, will take place from St. Gabriel's church, Barton, tomorrow at 9 A.M.  Interment will be made in the Catholic cemetery below in Barton. William Fitzgerald(sic) will be missed in Pekin.  He was a good man in every acception of the word.  Honest, industrious and kindly.  He had the esteem of all who knew him.  Recently, he spent a great deal of money to re-open abandoned coal mines near Pekin.  It was a brave venture, but William Fitzpatrick had worked long in the coal mines and he knew how to get out coal.  His venture was successful, and had he lived he would have demonstrated that much of the abandoned coal which the theorists and the commercial course miners left behind them could be mined at a profit.  His death is a loss to this community.
