FLANAGAN, Edward

Edward Flanagan, of Dawson, Pa., aged 42 years, single and a miner at Gleason mines, was found dead at Nethken's Siding above Shaw, last Sunday morning, by the crew on a helper. Coroner F. C. Rollman and Justice Ed Aronhalt went to the place and a jury was impaneled. The unfortunate man's skull was injured and one hand cut off, and on his person was found $20.10. The verdict of the jury was that he came to his death by being struck or knocked off by a train. Coroner Rollman brought the body to Elk Garden and prepared it for burial. The body was identified on Monday by John Sherlock, the dead man's chum, and shipped to Pennsylvania Tuesday. It seems that the two were trying to ride on a freight train and had with them a gallon jug of whiskey which explains the situation.

Mrs. Elizabeth Fleek, widow of the late Arthur Fleek, and mother of our respected citizen Mr. Henry Fleek, died at her home on Cabin Run, November 19th, 1912, at the age of 88 years.

FLEEK, Elizabeth

Silently the moon's gentle beams creep over hill and vale. All nature seems to be in calm repose in quiet eventide, yet there's a sadness pervading all. there are aching hearts that the moonlight cannot turn to reverie, nor the sunlight cheer. There's a vacant chair, a tender voice that cannot be replaced; home is home no longer; mother is not there. The dearest treasure heaven lends to earth is with us no more. Death, without pity, comes into our midst unawares and takes the last golden link that binds our hearts and home together. It seems hard to bear such a life; only a broken dream; only a passing smile, overshadowed with sorrow and disappointment.
On the 17 inst. the death angel visited the home of Mrs Elizabeth Fleek and claimed her as his victim, aged 88 years and 6 days. She is survived by five children, two sons and three daughters, John Fleek of Cabin Run; Henry Fleek, of Keyser; Misses Annie and Susie Fleek, of Cabin Run and Mrs Maggie Haines of Hampshire. Also one brother, Rev Samuel Umstot, of Mineral County, and two sisters in the West. Her husband, one son and one daughter having preceded her to the great beyond. Years ago she united with the M E church, South, of which she ever after remained a zealous and consistent member, thereby setting an example worthy of imitation by each one of her children and relatives. She was one of the most loveable and motherly women we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was especially loved by the children of the neighborhood, whom she always loved to be with, telling and admonishing them to be good and to try and walk in the footsteps of the godly. Oh, that every boy and girl throughout the length and breadth of our great country could have such a mother as she has been, crime and prisons would be unknown and in their stead love, respect and harmony would reign supreme.   The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Rev Oliver, after which the remains were laid to rest by the side of her husband in the family graveyard in the presence of a large concourse of friends.
The pall bearers were John and Henry Fleek, Charlie, Newton, Isaac, Wright and Albert Umstot.
  The treasures of earth must fail,
  It's riches and honor and glory decay,
  But the riches of love that are mine,
  Even death cannot take them away.

FLICK, Sallie Taylor

Of Mrs. Sallie Taylor Flick, who departed this life August 29, 1912
"The trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible."
Not changed, but glorified, O beautious language
For those who weep;
Mourning the loss of some dear face departed,
Fallen asleep;
Hushed into silence, never more to comfort
The hearts of men.
Gone like the sunshine of another country,
Beyond our ken,
O dearest dead; we saw thy white soul shining
Behind the face,
Bright with beauty and celestial glory
Of an immortal grace.
What wonder that we stumble, faint and weeping,
And sick with fears,
Since thou has left us all with sorrow
And blind with tears.
Can it be possible, no words shall welcome
Our coming feet?
How will it look, that face we have cherished,
When next we meet?
Will it be changed, so glorified and saintly,
That we shall know it not?
Will there be nothing that shall say, "I love thee
And I have not forgot?"
O faithless heart; the same loved face transfigured
Shall meet me there.
Less sad, less wistful, in immortal beauty,
Divinely fair.
The mortal veil washed pure with many weepings
Is sent away.
And the great soul that sat within its prison
Hath found the day,
In the clear morning of that other country
In Paradise.
With the same face that we had loved and cherished
She shall arise.
Let us be patient; we who mourn with weeping
Some vanished face,
The Lord has taken but to add more beauty
And a Divine grace.
And we shall find once more beyond earth's sorrows,
Beyond the skies
In the fair city of the sure foundation,
Those Heavenly eyes,
With the same welcome shining through their sweetness,
That met us here.
Eyes from whose beauty God has vanished weeping
And wiped away the tear.
Think of us, dearest one, while on life's waters
We seek the land,
Missing thy voice, thy touch and the true helping
Of thy pure hand.
Till through the storm, and tempest safely anchored,
Just on the other side,
We find the dear face looking through death's shadows,
Not changed, but glorified.
