Albert Robinette, a painter, 53 Dilley Alley, this city, was killed yesterday afternoon at 3:35 o'clock in the wreck of extra east bound freight train No. 101 on the Western Maryland Railway, on the W. Va. division, at a point between Neff and Chaffee.  His body was brought to Cumberland last night and taken to the Stein undertaking rooms. Robinette's neck was broken. His body was little mutilated. His brother, Marion D. Robinette, who resides with their mother, Mrs. Alvira Robinette, 80 Goethe street, was with him at the time of the accident, but he escaped injury. He accompanied the body to this city. The brothers were returning from a point in W. Va., where they had been employed at painting stacks. They were riding in a gondola. Oscar DeBerry, of Hubbard, W. Va., was with them. He was caught in the wreck, but escaped with a sprained wrist and was able to go to his home. A justice of the peace at Blaine, W. Va. acting as coroner, took charge of the body.  Eight loaded cars coming right after the middle of the train were wrecked. Officials of the road could not say last night as to what caused the wreck, pending an investigation.  The track was closed over six hours and passengers of trains Nos. 3 and 4 were transferred. Two wrecking crews were employed to get matters right.  Robinette was a well known young man, especially about Queen City pavement, right off which was his home. He is survived by his wife, a daughter of Samuel E. Shields, 126 Walnut street, and five children, the eldest boy of 17 years. He was a son of the late Daniel Robinette.

ROBINSON, Morgan
GARLITZ, Henry

"Life Long Friends Die Same Day.
Singular Deaths With Many Coincidences in Life and Death
Henry Garlitz and Morgan Robinson died about ten days ago on Pea Ridge in Garrett county.  they lived on adjoining farms for most of their lives and their dual deaths came within an hour of each other.  Their ages were the same, verging on 80 years; always near neighbors, of the same politics (Democratic) and religion (Catholics) and buried in the same cemetery at St. Ann's church nearby. They were two good, honest, law-abiding citizens.  No one ever had just cause to complain of either of them.  Their places in usefulness can not soon be filled.  Both left children and grandchildren.  Robinson left a widow, but the wife of Garlitz died some years ago.  He was the last son of Christian Garlitz, who died in 1868.  They were both of old Allegany county stock with large family ramifications.
