SUDER, Henry

Funeral services for Henry Suder, aged 67 years, who was fatally injured in an accident in the Acosta mine of the Consolidation Coal Co., on Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 10, were held in Amity Evangelical and Reformed Church, last Friday afternoon, with Rev. J. E. Gindlesperger officiating, assisted by Rev. Nelson C. Brown. Rev. Gerald Polman, pastor of the Main St. Brethren Church, rendered two vocal selections, "Rock of Ages" and "God Understands".  Interment was made in Union Cemetery under the direction of W. C. Price & Son. Henry Suder was born Sept. 4, 1897[sic], at White Horse Gap of Allegheny Mountain, Somerset County, a son of Peter W. and Sarah (Deeter) Suder. At the age of 17, Mr. Suder and his brother, William, went to Uniontown to work for their uncle, W. H. Deeter, in the lumber business. In 1903 he secured employment at Shaw Mines and gave 44 years service in the mines.  When Shaw Mines closed, he went to Blackfield where he was employed by the Atlantic Fuel Co., and later went to the Acosta mines where he was working the last 15 years, and where the fatal accident occurred last Tuesday at the close of his day's work. Mr. Suder and a fellow worker, Ralph Phillippi, both of whom were fatally injured, were on their way out of the mine about 11:45 a.m.  They were riding a mine motor when a trolley pulley came loose.  The trolley rod on the motor knocked down a six-by-six inch iron support bar which fell on the men.  Both were removed to the Somerset Community Hospital where Mr. Suder died at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, and Mr. Phillippi passed away on Wednesday morning. Mr. Suder united with the White Oak Reformed Church in his youth, and remained a member until the time of his death. On March 1, 1903, he was united in marriage with Miss Maud Bird, sister of the late internationally known poultrymen, Charles and Cyrus M. Bird, by Rev. J. D. Hunsicker, at Deal.  She was then a teacher in the schools of Elk Lick Twp., and he was a boss driver at Shaw Mines. Surviving are his wife, four sons, Cecil, Garrett; Gorman, Meyersdale R.D. 3; Glenn, at home; Melvin, Fort Wayne, Ind., and two daughters, Mrs. Gordon Mark, Elkins, W.Va., and Mrs. Cleda Uhl, Fort Wayne, Ind., and two grandchildren.
