OSS, George A.

ELK GARDEN - Mr. George A. Oss who was horribly cut with a rapidly running saw and died in a few hours at the Red Bridge on Abram's Creek, Grant Co., was well known here. He attended church and Sunday school frequently at this place while he was operating his mill at Atlantic. He enjoyed the confidence and esteem of everyone. He was an earnest Christian, a member of the M. E. Church. His generous nature is shown by the following incident: A young man at his mill was taken down with appendicitis. He was in poor circumstances and Mr. Oss sent him to the hospital for treatment, which was successful, and assumed all expenses. This is but one of his many charitable acts. His many warm friends here were exceedingly shocked on hearing of his sudden death. A good many has been taken away.

The accident occurred about 10 am, and he lived until 7 pm. He leaves to mourn their loss a wife and five children and a host of friends. He was a member of the M. E.

OSS, George A.

In an accident, Saturday, November 30, 1912, at his sawmill near Schell, W Va, Mr George A Oss suffered fatal injuries followed in a few hours by death. During the few intervening hours between the calamitous occurrence and the end of life he was not only rational but capable of conversing with his family and advising his wife as to the course most practicable for her in future direction of affairs. After full and clear explanations of his secular appertaining, he calmed himself to meet without dread the waiting messenger. At noon, Tues, Dec 3, 1912, the remains were brought by relatives, accompanied by friends from several states, for funeral observances conducted in the Methodist Episcopal Church by its pastor, the Rev Mr Havenner. At the conclusion of the church rites the body was conveyed for interment in the cemetery south of town. Mr Oss is survived by a widow, four sons and a daughter, none of the children yet grown and by a brother, Mr William Oss of Swanton, Md, with whom, during the major part of his business career, he was associated in the lumber trade. The subject of this mention was born near Frostburg, Allegany Co, Md, thirty-eight years from the 15th day of Jan, 1913. Once when his business was responding to his strict and judicious supervision, a well stocked lumber yard was totally swept away by fire, and later a sawmill with valuable equipment was devoured in flames; but over the ashes and embers of these losses he would rebuild and further extend his growing trade. From the first receipts coming in answer to his brave struggle he used in liberal part of obtain books for information so sorely hidden from him. It had not been his privilege to attend school a single day in his life and every mental and business possession of his had been quarried from the granite rock of a self-imposed toil. He procured and read the best works from thoughtful authors on civil and religious subjects and informed himself from the most modern and useful lexicons and encyclopedias to be had. He was a church member of uncompromising religious convictions.

"Funeral of John O'Toole--
John O'Toole, who died at his home in Barton, last Saturday, after a lingering illness of nearly two years, was buried at nine a. m. Monday from St. Gabriel's Church, where a requiem mass was sung by the Rev. James Quinn. The remains were followed to the grave by a long procession of relatives and friends. Mr. O'Toole served as a teamster in the Union army nearly four years and was with McClellan's army in front of Richmond. He had several narrow escapes from capture. After the war he joined his family in Barton, where he has since been respected as one of its best citizens. Few people knew that he had served with the army, as he was not given to talk on that subject, and never mentioned it save to some old soldier, to whom he would talk freely about his war experiences. Mr. O'Toole is survived by one daughter, Miss Kathleen - who has been a most devoted muse and companion. The pallbearers were: Thos. Gannon, Theodore George, P. H. Gallagher, Sr., John Bean, Thomas Condon and Martin Cady. Interment was made in St. Gabriel's Cemetery."
