HAHN, Mrs. Jane (Humbertson??)
 
Mrs. Jane Hahn, an aged pilgrim, departed this life on the evening of April 29th, in her 73 year.  Mrs. Hahn was born Nov. 6, 1821, near Frostburg.  About the age of 17 she openly confessed Christ and became a member of the Lutheran church.  She had been a consistent member to the day of her death.  She married the late John Hahn and moved to this county to live.  She had been an invalid for more than twenty years, but through all her sufferings she never lost her child-like faith in God, but was constantly admonishing her friends and loved ones to live Christian lives.  She seemed to live for the future alone, not desiring the goods of this world, but longing to depart and be with Christ.  Her bible was her daily guide, and when too ill to read she would call her friends to read it for her.  Her health through the past winter had been comparatively better than for years but suddenly she became ill and after intense suffering for twenty-eight hours she fell asleep in Jesus.  Just before her departure when asked by members of her home if all was peace she said yes, and it was not as hard to die as she had thought.  Just before her illness she spoke of her faith in her Savior and said it was only through His loving kindness she had been spared so long.  She leaves four sons and three daughters to mourn her death, namely, Thomas and Scott, of Good Intent, Pa.; George Hahn of Pattan, Ala.; Isaiah Hahn, Mrs. V. B. Wensell, who has cared for her through her years of suffering, Mrs. Lydia Polan and Miss Sarah Hahn.

HAMILTON,William
CONDRY, James
BLANTT, Joseph
KIGHT, EDWARD

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT WASHINGTON MINE No. 5

Three Men Killed and Thirteen Others Injured by Collision on Incline Early This Morning - Two of Latter May Die
MEN WERE GOING UP PLANE TO WORK
Special to the Times
Westernport, Md., Jan. 25 - A dreadful accident occurred at 6:30 o'clock this morning at Washington Mine No. 5 of the Piedmont and George's Creek Coal Co., near Franklin, Md., of which Mr. M. P. Fahey is superintendent, in which three men were killed instantly and thirteen others were badly, and one or two perhaps fatally injured.
The Killed
Jos. Blantt, Italian laborer
William Hamilton, blacksmith, of Franklin
James Condry, dumpman, of Franklin
The Injured
Kirk, a brakeman on the mine electric motor, injured in the arm and chest. He resides at Barton and will recover.
Edward Kight, carpenter, injured seriously about the head.
John and Louis Tucci, Italian laborers. Joseph hurt about the head, Louis in the legs and chest.
L. C. Lambert
, leg broken; resides at Reb's station, near Westerport.
W. H. Smith, weightmaster, shoulder blade broken and injured in the back; resides at Reb's station.
James Gowan, laborer, face cut; resides at Barton.
George Hamilton, miner, face cut; resides at Franklin.
Ed Frazenbaker, roadsman, hurt about arm; resides at Westernport.
Thomas Murphy, fireman, eyes and back injured.
Escaped Injury
Earnest Phillips and Clarence McAllister, both of Franklin, escaped injury. Murphy was on the descending loaded cars; the others were all on the ascending empties. None of the cars were thrown from the track by collision.
How it Happened
As stated, the accident happened on the incline plane during the first trip of the day. The ascending cars are always empty and they meet the descending loads at an automatic switch half way up the incline. Here, of course, if the switch is properly set, they pass each other, keep to the track to the right and there is seldom any difficulty in passing. William Stowell, a lad sixteen or seventeen years old, is charged with setting the switch, and it is thought that in some way he neglected to perform his duty properly and hence the trips collided while going at a high speed.
The men were all riding up the incline on their way to work in or about the mines.
Condry and Blantt were killed instantly. Hamilton died at 8:30 o'clock this morning. Father Quinn, of Barton, and Scarpatti, of Morantown, were quickly on the scene.
Store Turned Into Hospital
The injured in the mine accident have all been taken to Gannon's store at Franklin, which has been turned into a temporary hospital. All the physicians of Piedmont and Westernport are in attendance.
Kight Has Since Died
Since the above story was written Mr. Edward Kight has died. Mr. L. C. Lambert and the three Italians who were seriously injured were taken to the Hoffman Hospital at Keyser. Mr. Kight died at 12:20. The others who were injured were taken to their homes, none of whom were seriously injured.
Mr. Lambert and the three Italians were reported in a critical condition at 4 o'clock.

HAMMER, Miss Sallie

Miss Sallie Hammer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Hammer of Great Cacapon, died in the City Hospital in Martinsburg, her death being caused by an attack of peritonitis. She was aged 28 years. Miss Hammer went to the City Hospital April 1, and was then in a critical condition. An operation was deemed imperative, and this was performed. Her condition, however, had been such that the operation proved unavailing and she died a few days after it was performed. The girl at first claimed she had no relatives or friends, but when it was found that she could not recover, she told Dr. Oates that her parents resided in Great Cacapon, a few miles west of Hancock. Letters and telegrams were sent them, and a short time before the girl died she was visited by her brother and sister, who went away afterward. The brother stated that the dead girl had been cast off by her parents, and that he did not expect any interest in the disposal of the remains. As a result, Undertaker Wilen, of Martinsburg, buried the body in Green Hill cemetery at the expense of the county.

HAMMOND, William P. (also FOUTCH, Charles & MOONEY, William J.)

W. J. MOONEY DIED AT HOME EARLY- TODAY
Had Been With Foutch Yesterday—
W. P. Hammond Victim of Wood Alcohol Poison
County authorities are expected to investigate into sudden deaths of two local white men today, who, the Police Department believe, are the victims of poisonous liquor. One man is believed by police to be Charles "Cotton" Foutch, about 45, who had lived in a shack on lower Canal street, in the rear of the Crystal Laundry plant. He was found in a dying condition this morning in the shack and died at the Allegany Hospital a half hour later.
The other is William J. Mooney, aged 40, a laborer, who died early this morning at his home, 1004 Grape Alley, from undetermined causes.
William P. Hammond, 27, 573 Arnett Terrace, died suddenly Thursday night in Winchester, Va., while on a visit to relatives, of wood alcohol poisoning according to the county coroner at Winchester.

Foutch In Agony When Found
Foutch was found by Officers Raymond Johnston and John W. Smallwood lying on the floor of the shack about 10:30 o'clock this morning. Two men, Dewey Emerson and John Allen, had reported to the police that there was a sick man in a shack on Canal street. Foutch appeared in great agony, his hands clenched, mouth open, and in a semi-stupor, the officers said. He was placed in the patrol ambulance and taken to the Allegany Hospital. He was in a dying condition and lived only a short while after being examined by Dr. Charles Zimmerman. His body was removed to the Stein Funeral Home. The officers said they found nothing in the shack that would indicate that Foutch had been drinking, nor were they able to detect the odor of liquor on him.

Mooney Apparently Sober
William J. Mooney, age 38 years, unmarried, died at the home of his parents, Andrew and Johanna Mooney, 1004 Grape alley at 10:30 this morning. According to a statement from Andrew Mooney, his son came home last night around 10:30 o'clock and was apparently sober. He made some comment to Mrs. Mooney, his mother, about some-one dying or some-one dropping along the "Tow Path" when he was on his way home. The family was not certain as to just what the statement was, and Mrs. Mooney could not be interviewed. Andrew Mooney was emphatic about his son being sober and stated. "When he came in last night I never dreamed he would be a corpse this morning". Mr. Mooney claimed that during the night he heard his son coughing and called to him asking if he "wanted anything". His son said "no", and Mooney claimed he did not know he was sick until this morning when he appeared worse, and a physician was summoned. The actual cause of the death is vague, and physicians state Mooney was dying when they arrived. It has been determined however that Mooney had been "down along the tow path with some of the boys" and it is possible that his death may have been due to poison liquor. According to advice received by local authorities, Mooney and Foutch had been seen together yesterday. Mooney is survived, besides his parents, by one brother, Michael, and three sisters, Mrs. Margaret Litton, Thomas street, Mrs. Julia Frame, Pioneer Place and Mrs. Johanna Thomas, North Centre street.

Most of all, Linda will be sadly missed by Kevin, her husband. To him, Linda was not only a wife, but a lover, and most of all, his best friend. I will always love you, and until we see each other again, Babe. Linda enjoyed collecting bears and Coca-Cola items. She also enjoyed fishing, going to yard sales and auctions, playing cards, traveling to Canada, and just being with family. Linda was a member of the Bethel Assembly of God Church in Oldtown.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to family and friends from work, social services, the State Highway Administration, church, neighbors, doctors, nurses, and the angels from Hospice for the love and care shown to Linda and her family. Sometimes, just to talk was that little bit that meant so much to both of us. Thanks again.
