TIGHE, Wilfred Vincent

"Clarysville--Man Suicide At Road House--Celanese Worker Was Part Time Bartender-Shot Self After Easter Flower Tilt--
Wilfred Vincent Tighe, 36, Clarysille a Celanese employe; shot and killed himself early last night in Carrico Gardens, a beer tavern service station at Clarysville, where he also worked as a bartender.  Dr. H. V. Deming, deputy county medical examiner, issued a verdict of suicide and said the blast from a 12 gauge single barrel shotgun ripped through his heart and lung about 6:45 p. m.  State Police, who assisted in the investigation, said Tighe returned home yesterday afternoon from Frostburg where he had purchased an Easter flower for his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth (Davis) Tighe, whom he relieved from duty at the bar. The couple lived in an apartment above the place, located opposite Mcmurdo's Garage. 
Gave Wife Easter Flower
According to Trooper William Baker, Mrs. Tighe reprimanded her husband for buying the flower and said the money could be used for a better purpose.  A patron identified as Richard M. Connor, 59, Red Hill, Eckhart, was in the tavern at the time.  Connor told police that Mrs. Tighe then left and her husband remarked "Something's going to happen-I'm going to finish it right here.'  He also left after he noticed Tighe go into a store room behind the jar and pick up the shotgun.  After Connor closed the door and walked a short distance, police were told, he heard a shot and rushed back into the place to find Tighe lying in a pool of blood on the floor in the room. He rushed upstairs and notified the family and Tighe's half-brother, Homer Schriner, along with Walter Brown, proprietor of the place. Relatives called the LaVale substation and First Sgt. W. E. O'Hara and Trooper Baker went to the scene.
Was Asthma Sufferer
Authorities surmised that Tighe, described as having a "long reach," put the gun muzzle against his left chest and pushed the trigger with a finger.  Another gun was found in the room.  Dr. Deming said the family told him that the victim had been ill with asthma for some time. Mrs. Tighe reported that she and her husband had no serious arguments, but "just, the usual misunderstandings."  Born at Frostburg, Tighe had been employed in the filtration department at he Celanese plant.  He resided at Clarysville about two years.  Surviving, in addition to his widow, are two children, Robert, 12, and Judy Tighe, 5, at home.  He was a son of Mrs. Lena Chambers, Frostburg.  The body was taken to the Durst Funeral Home, Frostburg."

TILGHMAN, Frisby Lynn

Cumberland, Md., Mar. 23 -- Frisby Lynn TILGHMAN, aged seventy-five, was killed by the eastbound Baltimore and Ohio accomodation train, here, this afternoon while crossing the tracks at the Queen City Glass Works, South Cumberland.  He stepped out of the way of an immigrant train, directly in front of the accomodation train, the approach of which he had failed to note.  He was  hurled many yards and death was almost instantaneous. Mr. TILGHMAN is survived by his wife, who was a Miss BILLING, of Petersburg, VA., and two daughters. He was a native of Cumberland.  He was connected with the Baltimore and Ohio engineering corps when the road was constructed from Cumberland to Wheeling.  Later he had charge of the business of the Borden Mining Company, at Linn's Wharf, Cumberland, for many years.  For the last eighteen years he had been confidential agent for the business department of the Queen City Glass Works, of which Frederick Mertens, the Washington capitalist, is the head. Mr. TILGHMAN came from one of the oldest Colonial families of Maryland.  He was a direct descendant of the man that carried the news of the surrender of Cornwallis from Yorktown to Philadelphia, a feat in which the lives of several horses were sacrificed.   Matthew TILGHMAN, another ancestor, was president of the first State constitutional convention in Maryland.

TIMMS, Thomas

A mixed train, made up of passenger coaches and freight cars, was wrecked Monday morning at 10 o'clock, on the Virginia & Pittsburg branch of S. & O. abut two miles east of of [sic] Buckhannon. Firemen Thomas Timms, of Weston, was killed outright and his body was found beneath the engine, about two hours after the accident occurred. The train was running late and was going at fast speed, when the rails spread, causing the engine to be derailed and thrown from the track, followed by five cars being turned over. Engineer VanHorn jumped from the engine just in time to save his life, as the engine turned over. None of the passengers was injured but they were badly shaken up and frightened. The report went out first that the passengers were hurt but was incorrect. Physicians went to the scene of the wreck, to administer to anyone needing their assistance. The dead fireman, Thomas Timms, was aged about 30. He has a wife and children residing in Weston. The body was taken to his late home.

MET DEATH BY FALL OF COAL
Fatal Accident in Mine Near Lonaconing Yesterday.
THE FATE OF DANIEL TIMNEY
His Body Still Under the Fall of Coal. Other Narrow Escapes from Death. John Patterson and Robert King Both Badly Hurt—Regular Cave-in.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lonaconing, MD., Jan. 18 — While a party of eleven men were finishing the last cut in mine No. 9, of the American Coal Co., the mine caved in without the least warning about noon yesterday, causing the men to run for their lives, and all escaped but John Patterson, Robert King and Daniel Timney, miners of Moscow, who were caught under the debris.  The mine is nearly worked out, and a number of men were removing a "stump" at this particular place when the cave-in occurred. They were: Daniel Timney. John W. Patterson, Howard Patterson, Robert King, Edward Patterson, James Jones, R. Murray, Howard Andrews, James Clark and James Fairgrieve. Only Timney, King and Jno. W. Patterson were caught by the falling tons of coal.  King got out without assistance badly cut and bruised.  Their fellow miners immediately set to work to rescue the men covered.  After a few minutes work they reached Mr. Patterson, whose life was saved by being near the edge of the fall and also by being knocked by the force of the fall into the ditch. He was badly bruised and cut about the body, but no bones were broken He is resting very comfortably.  The body of Mr Timney has not been recovered at (this writing), but it is almost sure that the life of Mr Timney is lost, as the fall brought in the surface up to day light.  Mr. Timney leaves a wife and two children, who reside at Moscow.

A FATAL ACCIDENT
A very sad accident occurred to Mr. Geo. Tippen yesterday evening. Mr. Tippen has just finished his supper and had gone out his gate and turned to close it, when the quarter after six street car struck him. He lived but a short while. Mr. McKluckle was running the car, and did everything to make him hear, but all in vain. A coal train was passing and he could not hear the street car in time to get of the way.  Mr. Tippen is survived by his wife and the following children: William, George, Harry, Misses Clara, Ella, Theresa, Della, Mrs. Thos. Winters, Mrs. Jas. Higgins, all residing here and Miss Emma Tippen, who resides in Cumberland. The funeral arrangements have not yet been made. The accident was witnessed by Mr. Tippen's wife and several of his children, who were sitting on the front porch. Dr. Girffith of Frostburg, was summoned, but before he arrived, life was extinct. Mr. Tipper was miner by occupation and a most highly esteemed citizen, whose sad end has cast gloom over the entire community.  Coroner O'Neill reached the scene of the accident this morning and immediately summoned the following jury of inquest: Otto Hobing, foreman: John McCaughan, George Bunnett, J. S. Metzgar, John Chambers, Perry Weimar, Jas McMillan, Owen England, Uriah Jones, Henry Krause, James Fuller, John Footen. At two o'clock the jury had not rendered a verdict.
