Thomas W. Frost

FROST, Thomas W.

The sudden illness of Mr. Thomas W. Frost, alluded to last week in these columns, terminated Tuesday morning March 10, 1903, in death. Mr. Frost was born at Shade Mills, Garrett Co. (then Allegany), October 19, 1844, and died in the homestead of his birth, aged 58 years, 1 month and 21 days. Of quiet, equable turn, he lived and wrought "far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife," yet he was up-to-date in all his business operations.  He came of sturdy stock on both sides, agriculturist all, and maintained the industry as well as integrity of his lineage.  His mother's family were landed people, from whom to him and his generation of relatives the development of recent years brought wealth.  In his care and under the stimulus of his diligence, these resources multiplied in value. Among his neighbors he was a business friend and oracle.  His judgement was often sought and probably no man ever lost a cent who had followed his advice. Mr. Frost was a member of the M. E. Church many years - a liberal, cheerful giver to its support and a fathful communicant. In 1874 he became a member of Mountain Lodge, No. 99, A., F. and A. M.  Though not often able to attend lodge, he valued its ritual and associations highly. He owned property in Frostburg and was further identified with business interests here as a director of the First National Bank. His wife, a half-sister - Mrs. Marian  Broadwater, of Grantsville, and a half-brother, Charles W. Frost, are the immediate survivors of his family. The remains were interred in the William Frost lot, Allegany cemetery, Thursday, a few feet away from the inscription on a granite monument erected to the memory of his father:

"William Frost

Born March 10, 1817


The First Male Child Born in Frostburg."

It came to pass, therefore, that William Frost's first son died just 86 years after.
The Free Masons laid the remains away with their usual ceremony in the presence of a large number of friends.

Former Garrett Man's Body Found On Potomac Bank
The body of Claude Fullerton, 34, of Washington, D.C., who had been missing since October 28, was found Sunday morning at ten o'clock after it had been washed up on the bank of the Potomac River, 40 miles south of the nation's capital. Mr. Fullerton, a step-son of John and the late Vera Sipe Fullerton, was born in Garrett. He and a friend, Walter Farrell, also of Washington, went on a fishing trip down the Potomac last October in Mr. Fullerton's motor boat. First reports received by relatives in Garrett indicated that the motorboat struck a sandbar, Mr. Fullerton was knocked overboard by the impact and drowned. But, when his companion told several ambiguous tales of the accident, the suspicious circumstances gave rise to investigations. When the body was recovered Sunday morning, it was reported by investigators that there was no water in his lungs, his clothes were not torn but his face was badly bruised and the back of his head was crushed. The body, which was held in Washington for an inquest, arrives in Garret this afternoon to lie in state at the home of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Henry Weaver, until burial. Mr. Fullerton married Miss Alice Weaver in 1933, and the couple lived in Garrett until 1940. They then moved to Washington where he was employed by the United States government, stationed as a guard at the White House. When this job was given to World War II veterans over a year ago, Mr. Fullerton secured employment as a guard at the Potomac Edison electric power plant in Washington. He is survived by his wife and a daughter, Joanne, of Washington. Also surviving him are the following sisters and brothers: Mrs. Zelda Shaffer, Meyersdale; Mrs. Waneta Murray, Garrett, and John Fullerton, Rocky Mount, N.C.  A brother, William, was killed in action in Germany in 1945. Funeral services will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Lutheran Church, Garrett. The Rev. John C. Miller, pastor of the Evangelical Church, will

I noticed on your site about John A Fullmer son of George and Jennie (Green ) Fullmer. I am from the other side of the family and know that George Fullmer was an orphan and his father was John A Fullmer/Fulmer born in Fairfax VA., 1815. This man had many families which is the understatement. His father was also named John A Fulmer/ Fulmore in Fairfax VA and his father was Joseph Fulmore who was in Alexandria VA and one of the oldest residents and fought in the American Revolution. That’s our families brick wall. I am working on Church records in Alexandria VA and we will see what comes of this.

WARDENSVILLE, June 17 -   Died at his home here Friday morning James H. Funkhouser in his 77th year. Mr. Funkhouser was in apparently good health up to Thursday night, when he went to his home about 8:30.  He lived alone and about midnight he called a neighbor and sent him for the doctor and his daughter, Mrs. Kate Wilson, both of whom went immediately to the house, but not in time to render any assistance to the stricken man. Mr. Funkhouser complained of severe pains in the regions of his heart and was walking the floor of his room when the end came.  He told his daughter (the only person in the room) that he could not stand the pain much longer and that was the last spoken by him.  He kneeled to the floor and died before the doctor arrived. Mr. Funkhouser was an Ex-Confederate soldier, member of Co I, 33 Va. Regiment, and served throughout the war between the States.  His sudden death was quite a shock to his many friends and to his 7 living children, scattered over the States of Md., VA. and W. Va. He leaves six daughters and one son, all of whom are married and came to attend the funeral.

Lost His Life at The Switch ~ Freight Conductor James Furlong Instantly Killed While Shifting Cars, His Foot Caught on the Frog - He Was Struck by a Truck and Almost Completely Disembowelled.  An Inquest Deemed Unnecessary
Yesterday morning at 8 o'clock Baltimore and Ohio Freight Conductor, James Furlong lost his life while at his post of duty.  He was engaged in shifting cars at the Oldtown Crossing and while handling the switch, his foot caught in the frog.  In trying to extricate his foot he no doubt slipped and fell on the track, one truck passing over his body, almost completely disembowelling him.  He was instantly killed.  Undertaker Baxter removed the body to his undertaking establishment where it was prepared for burial and taken to the late home of the deceased on North Mechanic Street where he leaves a wife and one child.  He was about 32 years of age and was the son of the late Nicholas Furlong, watchman of the Second National Bank for many years.  He leaves two brothers, Messrs, John and Joseph and one sister, Mrs John Humbird.  Many were the expressions of regret heard on all sides particularly among railroaders.  The train that killed him was drawn by engine 1059 and when the truck struck the unfortunate man, two or three cars were thrown off the track.  When he was picked up one shoe was off and it is believed that he had extricated his foot and on doing so fell as stated above.  Acting Coroner Charles R Morris viewed the remains and deemed an inquest unnecessary.  The funeral for the deceased took place this afternoon at 3 o'clock from St Patrick's church.  Interment in Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery.

FURLOW, Mrs. Velma Ruey Ault
Mount Savage, MD -
Velma Ruey (Ault) Furlow passed away with family at her side on Sunday, October 12, 2014, at her home in Mount Savage, Maryland. She was 90. Born on December 19, 1923 in Cumberland, MD, Velma was the daughter of the late Jacob Hillery Ault and Ardella Josephine (Cross) Ault Stein. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 68 years: Lester Furlow; her siblings: James W. Ault; Nevaline C. (Ault) Seggie; Jack W. Ault; Eva C. (Ault) Riggleman; and Paul George Ault; and her son-in-law: Calvin Leroy Nicol. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family. Velma attended schools in South Cumberland and Cumberland and worked in Baltimore at the Crown Cork & Seal Company of Baltimore prior to her marriage in 1943. Following Lester's enlistment in the Army, she traveled with him and worked at various jobs supporting the war effort. After his deployment, Velma spent several years working and living on her in-laws farm on Piney Mountain in Mount Savage. She was an employee of the Celanese Corporation and served as a school bus aide for students with physical and intellectual disabilities for the Allegany County Board of Education. Velma was an avid gardener, at times planting over 100 tomato plants. Her joy in harvesting tomatoes came second only to her annual watch in late April and early May for more mushrooms. She loved feeding and watching birds and inspired a love of nature in her daughters. She will be remembered for her warmth, patience, and sense of humor. Velma was a member of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Frostburg, MD. The family thanks the wonderful caregivers from the Kingdom Hall who enabled her to remain in her home during the last year, including Candaci Nicholas, Colleen Lewis, Carla Donahoe, and Carly Alderton. We also thank those from Hospice Services of the Western Maryland Health System and the home health care aides who provided care and support. Velma is survived by her daughters: Janet Nicol; Judy
Furlow and son-in-law, Von Pfeiffer; Rita Furlow and son-in-law, Loren Andrews; and her grandchildren, Aidan and Ella Andrews.

Acting Coroner Korns was notified and went to the scene Saturday evening, but after hearing the testimony of several witnesses, deemed an inquest, unnecessary. Furr was unmarried and lived on Westernport
