DUCKWORTH, Squire Uriah
 
FORTY YEARS AGO
From the Daily News Files; October 29, 1891
Squire Uriah Duckworth, aged 92, died suddenly at his home, three miles east of Barton, this county. He was born near Barton in 1799 and married Miss Ellen Wilson, daughter of Nathaniel Wilson in 1824.  During the war of 1812 he tried to enlist but was only 13 years old and was turned down.  He was offered $50.00 and a wool blanket to go as a substitute in 1814, but his mother objected so strenuously that he did not go.  In the fall of 1820 the Squire went into Hampshire County and kept a Country School two years.  Two years later he returned to Westernport and kept a village school six months.  From 1823 to 1826 he kept store in Westernport for his brother-in-law, William P.  During the last fifty-seven years of his life, Squire Duckworth was a magistrate and served in Barton and Westernport.  Many of the Squire's old pupils recalled that on court days the school was converted into his courtroom and trials were held in the presence of his pupils.  The three R's were the principal studies "Reading, Ritin and Rithmetic."  The Squire carried his quill pen in his hat and on all occasions up to the time of his death.  He was supposed to have served as a squire longer than any man in the state and was a staunch Democrat. The deceased was the grandfather of A. B. Shaw, Esq.  The surviving children were: Isabella, wife of Jacob Meyers; Louis J., of Lonaconing; Dorcas, wife of W. H. Miller and Ezekiel, of Barton; Charles Wesley, of Westernport; Simeon H., of Lonaconing; Henry Harman and George Mason, Barton; Edward, of Lonaconing, and Rachel, wife of Samson Sigler.  He also left a sister Mrs. Theopolis Wilt, who resided on the Savage River in Garrett County. She was 80 years old.

DUCKWORTH, William S.
 
HIS INJURIES PROVED FATAL ~ Wm S Duckworth Died Last Evening
Highly Esteemed Man ~ Mr Duckworth, Who Was Hurt by the Blowing Out of a Cap While Repairing a Boiler, Died From Injuries
Mr William Duckworth, the boilermaker, who was injured over at the shops at Ridgeley, WVa., late yesterday afternoon and taken to the Western Maryland Hospital, died last night without regaining consciousness. He was repairing a branch pipe when a cap seven inches in diameter was forced out, striking him on the forehead. At the hospital, Dr Hawkins, assisted by Drs Bitterfield and Sherrett removed a number of fragments from Duckworth's skull and checked the hemorrhage but the fracture was so severe and the injury to the brain so terrible that surgical skill could not do so. Mr Duckworth was a native of Lonaconing where his aged mother resides. Mr Duckworth was 41 years of age and esteemed by all who knew him. For 21 years, he worked at Appleton Mine, Lonaconing. Later he was fireman at the electric railway power house at Reynolds. About five years ago he removed to Cumberland. He is survived by his wife and three children, Daisy, William J and John Duckworth by his first marriage. Mrs Duckworth was thrice married and the surviving stepchildren are: Robert Izzett of Midland, Isaac Izzett and Eva Dawson and Marshal Lohr. Mr Duckworth also leaves one brother, Edward Duckworth, Lonaconing. The funeral will be on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. at the deceased's residence, No 83 Goethe St and will be with Masonic Honors. Mr Duckworth was a member of Ohr Lodge No 131, A.F.and A.M. which will have charge of the funeral and McKinley Chapter No 12, Order of the Eastern Star, the Knights of Pythias and the Jr A W O M.
