Friendsville Man Dies of Burns
A Friendsville man, burned severely when a fuel storage tank exploded and caught fire early Thursday, April 24, at Oakland, died at 4:45 a.m. yesterday at the Burn unit of West Penn Hospital, Pittsburgh. Lowell Edward Sines, 28, was a passenger in the truck operated by Samuel Eugene Thomas, 50, also of

Mr. Sines had told a physician he was riding in the cab of the truck which was travelining east on Liberty Street when he said he thought the truck had backfired. When he looked around and saw the tank engulfed in flames, he tried to get out of the cab when the explosion occurred. Mr. Sines then ran through a field, his clothing burning and was found about 98 feet from the scene with burns over 70 percent of his body. He had been listed in critical condition at the Burn Center since the accident. Mr. Sines was a native of Friendsville and a son of Mrs. Grace Sines VanSickle and Freeman Sines, Friendsville. He was a Vietnam veteran and a member of Friendsville WOW Camp. Besides his mother and father, he is survived by his widow, Alice (Reese) Sines; two brothers, Karol Myers and Vernon Sines, Friendsville, and a half sister, Miss Donna Van Sickle, also of Friendsville.

SINES, PETER L.

Preston Republican, Terra Alta, WV (date unknown):
Peter L. Sines, son of Mary Sines was born March 15th, 1868 near Hoy Run, and died May 20th, 1928, at Borgman, aged 60 years, two months and five days. He spent his entire boyhood in the pine swamp settlement. His mother died when he was but just a babe, so in early years of life he was deprived of one of the most precious jewels that any boy can posess, that of a mother's love. He was reared by his grandmother, Katie Sines. He grew into young manhood hardy as the hills over which he both played and worked and which he loved.  n May 23, 1887 he was united in marriage to Ella F. Johnson, who preceded him in death on April 26, 1922. To this union were born nine children, eight of whom survive, namely: Mrs. Edna M. Garrett and Robert Sines of Akron, Ohio; Sylvester B. of Cranesville, John W. of Preston; Mrs. Alta Bergman, Foster, Fred and Harlon of Borgman; and 23 grandchildren. On June 18, 1923, he was again united in marriage to Mrs. Grace Feathers of Clarksburg, who survives him, also four step children, Mrs. May Boyer of Cumberland, Md.; Mrs. Jennie Arehart, James and Allen E. Feathers of Clarksburg and a host of friends who deeply mourn his loss. Mr. Sines had been in failing health for several months but his condition was not considered serious, which made it doubly hard, as he was well as usual on Saturday and died suddenly on Sunday morning at 5 o'clock. Little did we think that the reaper of death was ready to cross the threshold and lay his icy hands on the one we loved so well. Little did we think that his sun was going down while it was yet day; thus we are taught the uncertainty of this life. "Be ye also ready for in such an hour as we think not the son of man cometh," one by one are autumn leaves borne away on winter breeze. Thus we pass from earth away, our lives are fleeting as a day. He had traveled long the pathway of life, he has borne his burden and shared his griefs, his joys perhaps were many too few. He was blessed with good health, but we believe he found his main source of joy and comfort in helping others and trying to do something for his loved ones. He had entered well into the evening shadows. The twilight had begun to gather around him, when he paused for a moment with one long last look back and wrapped the draperies of his couch about him as he passed into the silent halls of that great eternity. The funeral services were conducted at Hoy Run Wednesday morning at 10:30 o'clock by Rev. Emery Fike of Eglon. He was a strong believer of the church of the Brethren and his daily pastime was reading the Bible. He was a good husband and father and a fine neighbor and will be greatly missed in this community and by all that knew him. He has gone never to return to his loved ones here, but we leave it all with Jesus for He doeth all things well. He was tenderly laid to rest in the Miller cemetery beside his companion and his grandparents, Leonard and Katie Sines. [followed by a poem about fathers, which was followed by the following item]
Card of Thanks
The children of P. L. Sines and wife, Mrs. Grace Sines, wish to thank the many kind friends and neighbors of Borgman and vicinity and also the people of Hoy Run, who came so willingly and tendered their help and comfort to us in the death of our father and husband. We want to also thank you all, who further emphasized your kindness by donating your cars on the day of the funeral and also for the beautiful flowers. We hope when this sad hour comes to your home you will be treated likewise. We assure you it was all appreciated and we are taking this method to try and demonstrate a portion of it to you.

SIRBAUGH, Mrs. Kathryne Coffroth Wilson

Houston, Texas - Heaven is celebrating this week. Kathryne Coffroth Wilson Sirbaugh entered its gates on Oct. 15. Kay was born in Mount Savage, Md., on Dec. 31, 1918, to Ralph Erskine and Emily Coffroth Wilson. She would be the fourth of five children (Florence [Sampson], Robert, Ralph and Janet [Wheat] born to the couple. After spending her youth perfecting the art of making fudge she entered the nursing program at Memorial Hospital in Cumberland, Md. At the urging of her best friend Mary Neal (who also recently passed on October 11) and after a brief stint as a nurse at John's[sic] Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, she joined the Army Nursing Corps where she quickly rose to the rank of captain,. At the conclusion of World War II she went to work as a nurse at the Kelly Springfield Tire Company in Cumberland. It was there that she met and treated (frequently) her future husband, Leo Paul Sirbaugh. They married on Christmas morning in 1946.

On Feb. 11, 1958, her dream to be a mother became a reality with the delivery of the first of two children, Tami Lee (Becker). Her son would arrive four years later. While she excelled as a nurse, she found her true calling as a wife and mother. Kay is survived by her son, Dr. Paul E. Sirbaugh of Houston; daughter, Tami L. Becker of Middle River, Md.; granddaughter, Megan D. Becker of St. Louis, Mo.; and close friend and sister (in-law), Mabel Wilson, Mount Savage.

LEASE, Frederick G.

Three Dead After Plane Crash Here
Three men are dead as the result of the first airplane crash in the immediate vicinity of Cumberland, which occurred late yesterday afternoon when the Challenger biplane operated by Wm. M. Skelly, 23, plunged to the ground while taking off from the Maryland airport on the McMullen Highway. It was Skelly's birthday. The dead are: William M. Skelly, Cresaptown, owner and pilot of the plane, who died at 7:35 p. m. in Allegany Hospital. Glendon L. Hoff, 24, of 722 Hill Top drive, who died in the hospital at 10:10 p. m. Frederick G. Lease, 33, of 214 Fulton street, who was dead when pulled from the machine. According to witnesses, the plane had just taken off and had traveled but about 500 yards when Skelly put the ship into a vertical bank, from which it went into a side slip and then into a nose dive. The plane crashed into a field on the Barton farm and burst into flames. The pilot and Hoff were thrown clear, but Lease was caught in the wreckage. Skelly and Hoff ran from the machine, their clothes blazing. Hoff collapsed after he had run into a barbed wire fence. Skelly ran toward the Baltimore and Ohio railroad track but collapsed in a gully. Both had attempted to beat out their flaming clothing.
George Barton witnessed the crash and ran to the scene. Aided by his brother, Ferman Barton, N. S. Yoder of Pinto and Mr. and Mrs. Richard Summerfield, he placed the pilot and Hoff in his car and took them to Allegany Hospital. Both were so badly burned that their deaths were expected momentarily. Their clothing was burned from their bodies and Skelly's face was badly battered.
Dr. Joseph P. Franklin, county and deputy state health officer, and Officer S. E. Phillips of the Maryland State Police arrived a few minutes after the crash. Dr. Franklin discovered that Lease was still in the burning plane. He took a tire cover - from his car and wrapping it about Lease, pulled him from the ship. Lease was burned to a crisp and dead. At the hospital Skelly was attended by Dr. James T. Johnson, Sr., and James T. Johnson, Jr. Hoff was attended by Dr. G. C. Blake. Hoff knew that he was dying and said goodbye to friends who called at the hospital. He was delirious when Floyd Jenkins and John ("Boots") Sapp came to see him. He said he wanted his collar loosened and when he felt that the end was near said, "Well, goodbye boys, I'm going." Hoff was perhaps the best known of the trio. He was formerly a sergeant and front guide in Company G, First Infantry, Maryland National Guard. He was regarded as a good soldier and was well liked by fellow members of the company.
An investigation was started immediately by State's Attorney William A. Huster and other county authorities as well as Officer Philips. No inquest was deemed necessary. The body of Lease was not identified for several hours. Keys found near his body fitted the door to his room at the home of Hugh Stevenson, 214 Fulton street, where he boarded, and this garage. Skelly was one of perhaps a score of local aviators. He had been instructed in flying by William J. Johnson and Walter A. Coughenour, also local pilots. He purchased the plane April a year ago, and had over 200 hours of solo flying to his credit. He had a students' pilot's license.
The crash was the worst in the history of the Cumberland area. Two U. S. Army fliers were burned to death more than a year ago when their plane crashed into the side of Little Savage Mountain, and another was killed a short time later, when he crashed at the intersection of the National Highway and the Meyersdale road. Both crashes were due to fog. Two Army fliers were injured, though not seriously, when a bombing plane crashed on the Baltimore and Ohio tracks near Roberts Station, several years ago.
The field from which the plane took off was one of two near the city. It was opened last year by Harold W. Krimm and operated throughout the summer. An air circus, featured by the stunt flying of three Marine Corps fliers, was held there under the auspices of the local chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Local pilots differed as to the cause of the crash. It was said that the plane was in first class shape, but one pilot said this morning that he had flown it a little over two months ago, at which time a piston in the 90-horsepower Curtis OX motor had broken and cracked a cylinder. He said that he was able to make a forced landing and advised Skelly to rebuild the motor. He added that he understood that a new cylinder and piston had been fitted but that the motor had not been rebuilt and was not turning up sufficient revolutions to be considered air-worthy. A Department of Commerce inspector is expected here today to investigate the crash and the above facts will be given him.
All three men were married and had children. The pilot is survived by his wife, Mrs. Mary Skelly, and seven small children. Funeral services will be held tomorrow at 9 a. m. from St. Ambrose's Catholic Church, Cresaptown. Lease is survived by his wife, Mrs. Edith Lease, his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Reuben B. Lease, and by two small children. Surviving also are four brothers, Arlie T., Richard T., Mason and Frank Lease, and two sisters, Mrs. Clarence E. McKenzie and Miss Harriet Lease. Funeral services will be held at 9 a. m. tomorrow from the Cresaptown M. E. Church, with burial in the family plot at Dawson. Hoff is survived by his wife and one daughter, Nancy, by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Hoff; by three brothers, Robert A., Roy R., and Russell E., and by three sisters, Mrs. C F. Rice, Mrs. Charles Zimmerman and Miss Mildred Hoff. Funeral services will be held at 4 p.m. tomorrow from the home, 722 Hill Top Drive, with burial in Rose Hill Cemetery, the Rev. H. Hall Sharp officiating.
George Barton and Firman Barton, on whose farm the airport is located, were badly burned about the hands in tearing the few remnants of buring clothing from Hoff and Skelly. The two men with Richard Summerfield saw the plane crash and were about 250 feet from the spot. They immediately started toward and were within fifty feet of the blazing ship when Hoff and Skelly emerged from it, groping blindly through the smoke and flames. Unable to reach Lease who was pinned in the cock-pit, the trio chased after Skelly and Lease and tore the burning clothing from them. The Bartons, who are brothers, suffered burns about the hands. Hoff had run along the fence and pieces of flesh were pulled from his body by the barbed wire. All his clothing except portions about his belt and shoes, were burned away. Skelly, whose eyes were burned out, ran a short distance from the plane and fell into a gully where the Bartons tried to aid him in whatever way they could. Summerfield, who is a World War veteran of this area, advanced the opinion that the men did not free themselves from plane but were dropped out when the bottom of the cockpit had burned away.

SKILES, Mrs. Mary Queer (also Brooks)

"Mrs. Mary Skiles [Queer, Brooks, Skiles], known to her many friends as Aunt Mary, died Friday morning at the county farm at five o'clock from the effects of cancer of the stomach. She came to Frederick three years ago [from Lyons, Rice County previously of Ellis County] to be taken care of during her old age, and though eighty eight years old at the time of her death was a bright spot in her life of her closely associated friends with her ever ready smile and cheery word. A daugher, Mrs. Elizabeth [Brooks, Mendenhall] Whetstone of Central City, Nebraska and a son, Jacob Brooks of Brucetone Mill, West Virginia, have arrived to attend the funeral which will be held at the Frederick M. E. church, Sunday afternoon at three o'clock, burial in the Frederick cemetery.  Two other sons, Edward Brooks, of Astoria, Ill., and William Brooks of Summerset[sic], PA., find it impossible to attend the funeral."
Lyons (KS) Daily News of August 16, 1919
Card of Thanks--:
"We feel truly and sincerely thankful to the people of Lyons and vicinity and especially Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Hurt for their great kindness and sympathy shown toward us during the illness and death and burial of our dear mother.  And also to those who contibuted the beautiful flowers.--Jacob Brooks, Mrs. Elizabeth Whetstone and daughter."

["Samuel and Mary Brooks may have lived in Garrett County for a time, probably about 1850-1869 perhaps during two spans of time.  They had 5-6 children.  Perhaps three of them were born in MD Allegany County.  I'd guess later Garrett County area.  They were Edward abt 1851, Charles abt 1854 and Ellen abt 1869.  It is thought that Samuel probably died in MD about 1868.  In 1870 census Mary Brooks was a widow living back in Somerset Co, PA with two of her children, Edward and Ellen, still at home.  The others, Jacob, Elizabeth and William, were farmed out or on their own in WV and PA.  I have an obituary of Mary when she died in Kansas in 1919, but it does not mention Maryland.  I do not think any of the children remained in MD.

I know that Mary was born to Michael and Elizabeth Queer in 1831 in Somerset County, PA.  She was illiterate all of her life.  Perhaps Samuel was as well.  I have found that he was born about 1803 with mention of MA, PA, WV, VA as well.  One may be correct, and it is likely to be MA.  His first name has been reported as Herman and Henry" ~ Gerald V. Mendenhall] 

Can anyone help with the family of Samuel and Mary Queer Brooks?

SLOAN, James

DEATH OF JAMES SLOAN.
For Many Years a Highly Esteemed Resident of Hoffman Mine.
The little community of Hoffman Mine, about a mile and a half from Eckhart, was greatly shocked this morning by the news of the death of one of its oldest citizens, Mr. James Sloan, who was found dead in bed about six o'clock this morning at his residence in that place. Mr. or Major Sloan, as he was more familiarly known, had not been in robust health for a considerable time, and not feeling at all well on retiring last night, requested Mrs. Sloan not to call him at his usual hour of rising as he would not go to his usual employment in the mine today. Going to his home about six o'clock the discovery was made by Mrs. Sloan that her husband had quietly passed away. Mr. Sloan was a miner by occupation and had been employed for nearly thirty years as one of the foremen at Hoffman mine of the Consolidation Coal Co. He was universally liked by the people of the community in which he lived, and had a large circle of friends throughout the county. Major Sloan was about sixty-two years of age, and was twice married. He was the father of eight children, one of whom. Miss Maggie Sloan, is a popular trained nurse. He was a cousin of Mr. Jas. McHugh, the well known coal merchant of this city. In 1893 Maj. Sloan was one of the Democratic candidates for the House of Delegates. The funeral arrangements have not yet been completed, but the interment will likely be in St. Michael's Cemetery, Frostburg.
