McKENZIE, George

George McKenzie, who was found dead near his home at Rawlings, Md., early Saturday morning, was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank McKenzie of Ridgeley, W. Va., and also a brother of Mrs. William Rowe and Mrs. Joseph Monnett. He left his home about two weeks ago, without saying anything as to his purpose, but his wife supposed he had gone on a trip he had been planning for some time.  Friday his dead body was located by a neighbor, who was passing along the river near Rawlings, and was attracted into the bushes by the roadside by the awful stench of the decomposing body.  McKenzie had cut his throat with a razor and the instrument of death was found by his side. He had several times threatened to destroy himself, but no cause is given. He left a wife and several children.  The McKenzies  about Keyser, among our most highly respected citizens, are relatives.

McKENZIE, George

His throat cut from ear to ear, the decomposed body of George McKenzie, 35 years old, a B&O track hand, was found lying in a clump of bushes in the woods near Rawlings at 8 o'clock this morning by J. E. Shepherd, a woodsman.  Beside the body lay an open razor, rusted and blood stained. From the position of the weapon beside the body, it is supposed McKenzie committed suicide. Shepherd came to Rawlings and Coroner William Shaw was notified. He and undertaker John Wolford, left at 11 o'clock to get the body.  McKenzie had been missing from home for the last few weeks, and his wife and five children, have been greatly alarmed over his disappearance. The McKenzie home is about a half mile from Rawlings.  For a number of years, McKenzie had been employed by the B&O as a member of a track gang working at that place. It is said he had been in bad health of late and had not been working.  Frank McKenzie, father of the dead man lives in this city, being employed as driver of one of the city sweepers.

McKENZIE, Sgt. Harry T.

Frostburg, July 11 — Details of the death of Sgt. Harry T. McKenzie, son of Mrs. Inez McKenzie, Route 2, Frostburg, were received recently from Lieut. Col. Stephen P. Kenney, Army Corps chaplain. He told Mrs. McKenzie her son died of injuries received in a truck accident in Holland. He met his death, the letter stated, about five o'clock in the afternon of April 18, 1945. He and another man left the unit area in a truck for assignment in connection with their duties. The following morning they had not returned. A search party was dispatched to cover the roads the men would have traveled. The wrecked truck was located but there was no trace of the two men. Every hospital in the area was contacted. In the course of this checkup it was learned that Sgt. McKenzie had succumbed at a military hospital, where he was taken after the accident. The Rev. Father Kenney stated that no details of the accident have so far been ascertained. He informed Mrs. McKenzie that her son was buried April 23 in a single grave which was blessed prior to his interment, in a military cemetery, near Margraten, Holland, with the complete burial rites of the Catholic church. Before his induction into military service, McKenzie was employed by the Frostburg branch of the Potomac Edison Company.
