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

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.

MOORE, Rev. J. H.

Washington, Dec 12 - A man not fully identified but believed to have been Rev. J. H. Moore, former pastor of the Presbyterian church at Keyser, was found dead in a lodging house here today. The police believe death resulted from heart disease but are conducting a further investigation.
The above telegram was received here yesterday morning.  Mr. Moore left here Wednesday on train No 14 for Washington, arriving there about ten o'clock. On going to his room he complained of not feeling well and about 11:30 o'clock was found dead in his bed. He had not been feeling well for some time, but no one thought there was any reason for alarm.  Mr. Moore was about 64 years of age, and leaves a wife, three daughters and three sons. He was pastor of the Presbyterian church here for about fifteen years until, six years ago, when he resigned. For a time he was pastor of three different churches, but for the past couple of years he had no regular charge and stayed most of the time at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Griffith, his wife being in Baltimore. His children are at different places, all employed, but John, who is in school at Lexington. Mr. Griffith went to Washington yesterday morning to look after the remains. The burial will probably take place at the native home of the deceased at Charles Town.

Members of Potomac Fire Company and Tri-Towns Fire Company in uniform attended all five funerals.
{Pallbearers for all are listed}.

Timothy Gilmore-A native of Thomas, Timothy Gilmore was a son of Mrs. Grace Shaffer Gilmore, Oakland and the late Timothy M. Gilmore. He spent most of his earlier youth in Crellin and and was a graduate of Oakland high school.
During World War II, he served as a tank driver with the Army in Africa and Italy and was wounded in the chest.

He was a member of Victory Post, American Legion, and Potomac Fire Company. Besides his mother, he is survived by his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Guy Gilmore, 122 Johnson Street, Westernport; three brothers, Harold Gilmore, Webster Springs, W. Va.; John W. Gilmore, Layfayette, Indiana, and Glenn Gilmore, Terra Alta and two sisters, Mrs. Margaret Kershetaky, Delano, Pa., and Mrs. Hazel Parsons, Hambleton, W. Va.

Richard D. Moran,
son of Mrs. Sarah Moran and the late Edward S. Moran, former mayor of Westernport, was a native of the town and a graduate of Bruce high school. He was a manager of the Moran Trucking Company in which he was associated with his brothers. He was a member of Trinity Methodist Church and Potomac Fire company.

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 hismistake, 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."

MORGAN, George

George Morgan, about 47, of Carlos, was burned to death yesterday morning when fire engulfed a small building he occupied from time to time in that community. An autopsy was performed by the deputy county medical examiner and an investigation is being held by authorities. Aaron Winters, fire chief of the Shaft Volunteer Fire Company, said a call was received at 11:30 a. m., and when the firemen arrived on the scene, the building was engulfed in flames. Floyd Winebrenner and William Yates, both of Carlos, said they were in Winebrenner's Store nearby when they saw flames emitting from the building.

Mr. Yates had his eyebrows singed by the flames although neither of the men was burned. The gutted building is located a short distance from the home of the victim's mother, Mrs. Carrie Morgan, who is 83. The victim was reported to have stayed in the small building from time to time. He was a retired serviceman having served in the Army for 20 years and a member of Farrady Post 24, American Legion, Frostburg. The fire was first noticed by Mrs. Floyd Winebrenner Sr. who lives nearby. She saw smoke coming from the roof of the building and called the Shaft Fire Company which responded with two trucks and six men. Tfc. Robert C. Dishong, of the State Police, went to the scene. Besides his mother, the victim is survived by a son, Gary Morgan, Waldorf; six sisters, Miss Mary Morgan, Cumberland; Mrs. lola Conrad, Frostburg; Mrs. Louise Ravenscroft, Midland; Mrs. Gladys L.

MORRIS, Thomas Lanch

"Thomas L. Morris Dies After Truck Plunges Into Dam-
A requiem high mass for Thomas Lanch Morris, 28, whose body was recovered from Savage River dam last Thursday, was celebrated Monday morning in St. Peter's Catholic church, Westernport. Rev. Linus E. Robinson, pastor, was celebrant of the mass. Interment was in Philos cemetery, Westernport, where military honors were accorded by members of Victory Post 155, American Legion. Pallbearers, all members of Victory Post, were Edgar Footen, Paul Kooken, Walter Grandstaff, William Kline, John Reckley and Frank Patrone. Morris, who resided in the Crab Tree Run section of Garrett county, was last seen about 11 p.m. on March 27 when he left the home of his father, Hugh Morris, of Westernport. When he failed to return to his home, his wife assumed that he was spending the night with his father with whom he had worked that day. The father became concerned Tuesday morning when his son did not report for work. Early Thursday morning, Harold Bittinger, caretaker at the control house of the Savage River dam, noticed a tire floating near the breast of the dam. A little later that morning, John Robert Martin, of Westernport, who was traveling along the Savage River road above the dam, noticed tire marks to the edge of the embankment and saw that trees down over the steep embankment had been skinned of their bark. Martin notified Bittinger and F. D. Glass, tender of the dam, who in turn contacted the Maryland State Police. Tfc. Milton G. Hart and Tfc. Bernard Chabot, who began the investigation, called William R. McDowell, 8 Jones street, Piedmont, who is a "scuba" diver. McDowell donned his diving equipment and entered the water of the dam. With the aid of a light, he located the body of Morris in his pickup truck about 30 feet below the surface of the water. After McDowell attached a line to the vehicle, it was pulled to the surface by a tow truck operated by the Reeves Motor company. The State Troopers stated that the truck had gone off the right side of the 24-foot roadway and plummeted about 110 feet down a steep embankment which borders the dam. An autopsy of Morris' body revealed the cause of death was asphyxiation and drowning. Authorities theorized that the victim died while attempting to escape from his submerged truck. Born in Westernport, Morris was the son of Hugh Morris and the late Mrs. Mary Eva (Bradley) Morris. He attended Bruce high school, Westernport, and was a veteran of service with the Army. In addition to his father, he is survived by his wife, Mrs. Doris (Wilt) Morris; four sisters, Mrs. John Everline, and Mrs. Howard Dunnivan, both of Westernport; Mrs. Joseph Harris, of Keyser, and Mrs. Michael Mihok, of Aliquippa, Pa. Also surviving are four brothers, Elmer, Richard, John and James Morris, all of Westernport."

MOSHOLDER, Harry M.

Pathetic clrcumstances surround the injury near Hyndman yesterday morning of Harry M. Mosholder, a Connellsville division freight brakeman living here. Mr. Mosholder was struck by No. 48 at South Hampton and was so badly injured that his life was despaired of. He was taken to the Allegany hospital at Cumberland, but up to noon today, the family here had not heard whether the injuries proved fatal. Mr. Mosholder, about 22 years of age, was married about four years ago to Mrs. Cora Mosholder, the daughter of Chief of Police George Hetzel. Mrs. Mosholder was widowed by the death of Clarence Mosholder, her first husband and brother of Harry Mosholder, who was killed while at work on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Chief Hetzel and Mrs. Mosholder left last evening for Cumberland, but at the Hill street home of the Chief, no word had been received from them. On the streets this morning, it was reported that young Mosholder had succumbed to his injuries. The couple have three children.
