Besides his mother, he leaves four brothers, Marshall, Clyde, Thomas and Paul, all of Westernport, and two sisters, Mrs. Charles Floto, Cumberland, and Mrs. Oliver Long, Arlington, Va.

Police Version of Accident-The accident occurred about 4:52 Sunday morning. The time was established by a broken watch on the wrist of Richard Moran. Trooper First Class, A. M. Sploch, of the Maryland State Police, who investigated, said that Gilmore, driving Moran's 1951 hardtop convertible, had just rounded a bend and apparently was confused by the headlights of another vehicle parked along Gilmore's side of the road. Apparently thinking the recently relocated road lay to the right of the headlights, Gilmore swerved off the road onto a gravel shoulder. By the time he realized his mistake, it was too late to stop. The car skidded several hundred feet, careened back to the road, and smashed against the front of the parked car. Four of the victims were thrown from the car with only Earl Kalbaugh and Richard Michael still in the back seat. Sploch said all of the dead except Charles Kalbaugh died instantly. Witnesses said Kalbaugh called for help then crawled under a fence at the George M. Barton farm and died of internal injuries. Dr. H. V. Deming, deputy county medical examiner, said the others died of skull fractures, internal injuries and neck fractures.

James. F. Thompson, the sixth occupant, was thrown from the vehicle and later was moved to Sacred Heart hospital, Cumberland, where he is recovering from his injuries.

Occupant of Parked Car Hurt.
Miss Joreetta Proudfoot, 21, of Rowlesburg, the only occupant of the parked car, sustained severe lacerations of the face and eyes when her head was thrown through the windshield by the impact. She told police she had been drowsy and thought she was dreaming when she saw the other car careening wildly towards her. Lewis H. Allwine, 24, of Highland, N. J., operator of the parked car, stated that he and his brother, Ernest, had pulled off to the left side of the road when they were flagged by Wilbur Fresh, a stranded motorist, of Akron, O., who had developed engine trouble. Gilmore's wife, Mrs. Betty Guy Gilmore, arrived at the scene of the accident about two hours later, unaware of her husband's death. Police said she was anxious over her husband's failure to return home and she stopped at the scene as officers were preparing to leave."

Grantsville, Maryland - April 9
The death of Mrs. Naomi Glotfelty, wife of Jacob J. Glotfelty, in the Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore, on Monday morning, April 7, came as a shock to her many friends and relatives.  Mrs. Glotfelty was taken to the hospital on March 25 for an operation.  She had been suffering for several months from an affection in her head which was pronounced a tumor and rapidly grew worse.  She submitted to an operation last Thursday.  The surgeons found a tumor in her brain, which could not be removed.  She rallied from the operation for a short while, but soon relapsed and remained unconscious until she passed away. Mrs. Glotfelty was a daughter of the late Jesse C. and Nancy Miller.  She was born at Pocahontas, Pa., on May 16, 1887[sic, 1877], being in her 53rd year when she passed away.  She was the second wife of Mr. Glotfelty, his first wife, Addie Longsdorf, having passed away many years ago.  She is survived by her husband and the following children: Mrs. Thelma Shearer, Frostburg; Ralph, of Kingwood, W.Va.; Harold, Orlando and Pauline, at home, and five grandchildren; also by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. Edith Mammau and Mrs. Nancy Engle, Berlin, Pa.; Mrs. Etta Doerr, Grantsville: Charles Miller, Connellsville; Russell Miller, Greensburg, Pa.; William Miller, Meyersdale, and half-brothers and sisters - John and Edward Miller, Akron, O.; Irvin Miller, Pocahontas; Mrs. Emma Poorbaugh and Mrs. Nancy Brill, Somerset, Pa.; Mrs. Grace Selders, Akron, O., Mrs. Ada Slagle, Meyersdale. Mr. and Mrs. Glotfelty were married in April 1899. They lived in Salisbury several years, later moving to the Gephart farm near Grantsville and then they moved to Grantsville where they lived the last 12 years.  Mrs. Glotfelty made many friends since coming here, who will miss her for her kindness to them in many ways.  She was of an amiable disposition  and was a wonderful homemaker and mother.  She will be greatly missed in the home and the community. She became a member of the Reformed Church, Nov. 22, 1891, at Pocahontas, later transferring her membership to the Grantsville church.  She was a faithful attendant and worker whenever she could help. Funeral services will be held Thursday morning, April 10, in the Reformed Church, her former pastor, Rev. L.N. Wilson, of Berlin, Pa., officiating. Interment will be made in the Grantsville cemetery.

GNEGY, Jessie Marie Wotring

Jessie Marie (Wotring) Gnegy, Oakland, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, Sept. 5, 2010, at her home. Born in Aurora, W.Va., she was the daughter of the late Calvin and Hester (Sell) Wotring. Mrs. Gnegy was also preceded in death by her husband, Harold Elroy Gnegy Sr.
Every now and then someone comes along who may not leave a mark on society by being a business professional, but who leaves something greater for generations of family who have lost the rock and center of their foundation. Jessie was a home maker, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She leaves behind five sons, Harold Jr. and wife Dotty, Robert and wife Marge, Larry and wife Jerry, Tim and wife Sue, and Ron and wife Susan, all of Oakland; one daughter, Kathy and husband Gary, Oakland; eight grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. Each person from the youngest to the oldest is left with memories about how she could make them laugh and how her smile could light up the room. Even until the end, she was still giving her loved ones blessed memories that will fill each and every one of their hearts with joy every time they remember these moments. Mrs. Gnegy was also a charter member of the Oak Park Church of the Brethren. She was a longtime Sunday school teacher and a deaconess, and helped with numerous other activities of the church. Serving the Lord was a very important part of her life, and she instilled the love to serve the Lord and help others in each and every member of her family, from the oldest to the youngest. At this time we all mourn our loss but also remember the words to one of Jessie’s favorite songs: "The blessing by faith, I receive from above. Oh, glory! My soul is made perfect in love. My prayer has prevailed, and this moment I know, the blood is applied, I am whiter than snow." After years of hard work and loving her family, Jessie’s prayer has prevailed, and she is whiter than snow. Friends were received at David A. Burdock Funeral Home, Oakland. A service was conducted at Oak Park Church of the Brethren on Wednesday, Sept. 8, with Rev. J. Roger Fike officiating. Interment was held in Garrett County Memorial Gardens.

His wife died three months ago. Several brothers and sisters also survive. The brothers are Thomas W., of Piedmont; J.

GORMAN, John
 
SUDDEN END OF WELL KNOWN HOTEL KEEPER AND OLD BOATMAN
A Resident of Cumberland Since the War--One of the Most Popular Men of the Old Days of the Canal
After an illness of little more than twenty-four hours, Mr. John Gorman, proprietor of the West Virginia House, on North Mechanic street, died at his residence about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, as briefly mentioned in the Times of that issue.  On Sunday Mr. Gorman ate heartily of roasting ears, from which he suffered a severe attack of cramps resulting in death as stated above.  Mr. Gorman was born in Ireland, and came to this country when a mere boy, landing in New York, and shortly afterwards coming to Cumberland.  He was among the most energetic and successful boatmen during the prosperous days of the canal, and was universally liked, being a man of most kindly instincts and generous impulses, and his sudden end came as a shock to a large circle of friends.  During the last three years he suffered severe domestic afflictions, losing his wife and two daughters, Annie and Leota, by death.  The surviving children are Mrs. Gibson Kight, South Cumberland; Mrs. P. H. Long, Misses Sadie and Hilda Gorman, and John and Arthur Gorman.  Outside of his immediate family, Mr. Gorman had no relatives in this country.  He was a member of St. Patrick's Catholic church.  The funeral arrangements have not yet been made.
