MILLMAN, Henry

A Well Known Citizen Passes Away at an Extreme Old Age
Mr. Henry Millman, an old and respected citizen, died Wednesday evening at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. John Rose, on Bedford street, in the 89th year of his age. Mr. Millman was the father of Mr. F. X. Millman, the well known florist of this city, and was perhaps the oldes market gardener in the county, which pursuit he followed for a number of years with great success. The deceased was born in Hanover, Germany, and came to this country in 1833. He was at one time a sub-contractor on the Baltimore and Ohio road and later on the Chesapeake and Ohio canal. But the occupation he loved so well was market gardening, and he only gave it up when old age made it impossible for him to follow it any longer. Beside Mr. F. X. Millman, he leaves two other children living, Mrs. John Rose and Mrs. I.[or J.] B. Slattery, of this city. He had one son dead, Dr. John H. Millman, who resided at Washington, Indiana, at the time of his death, and who was the father of Miss Alice Millman, who keeps a millinery store on Center street.

MILLS, Joseph (also Murphy, John)

"Joseph Mills, 47, Dead When Found By Rescue Crew--John Murphy, Trapped for Hour, Escapes with Minor Injuries-
Lonaconing, March 31 - One man was killed and another injured this afternoon in a cave at Lonaconing Mine No, 2 of the Georges Creek Coal Company. Joseph Mills, 47, of Gilmore, was dead when a rescue crew extricated his body at 7:10 p.m., approximately five hours after the fall. John Murphy, 50, of Lonaconing, escaped with minor injuries, although trapped for more than an hour. Ironically, the men had finished their last car for the day, and the mine was scheduled to be shut down tomorrow for the annual Mitchell day celebration, with the prospect of an indefinite shutdown because of failure of operators and the United Mine Workers to reach a contract agreement in New York by midnight tonight. 

Accident a Mystery

Murphy was unable to explain how the accident occurred. Interviewed at the home of relatives, where he was sipping black coffee, he appeared shaken by his experience and somewhat hesitant to talk about it. He suffered a bruised left leg and apparently minor injuries to his side.
He had not yet been examined by a physician. "I don't know what happened," Murphy said. "There was no warning. All I remember was a deafening sound and a crashing of timber and crashing. I was knocked back into the heading near the breast. My light was extinguished."

Bewildered at First

"For a minute I was bewildered. Then, I attempted to crawl toward what I believed was the front of the fall. I had no light, but I did have three matches, which I lighted, hoping to see some hole where I might escape. I dug for awhile, then I saw the reflection of a light dimly shining through a small opening in the fall. I had previously called for help until I was hoarse. When I saw the light, I hollered as loud as I could." This time, Murphy said, his shout was answered, and a voice which later proved to be that of David Brown, said he was going for help. It was an hour then until the frantically digging rescue crew removed enough of the fall to pull Murphy out.

Volunteers To Help

Murphy, learning that Mills was still trapped, volunteered to stay and assist in freeing him, but was ordered to go home. Then, the rescue crew, headed by District Mine Inspector Frank T. Powers, Frostburg, Mine Superintendant John P. Stevenson, and Foreman William C. Abbott
and Joseph Todd began the five-hour attempt to free Mills. Shortly after 7 p.m., they reached his body, which had been pinned by the heavy rock fall and timber. The body was taken to the Eichhorn funeral home, where it was examined by Dr. Henry M. Hodgson. Dr. Hodgson said Mills had died of suffocation. There were no other injuries, he reported.

Body Doubled Up

Abbott, the foreman, who was one of the first on the scene, said Mills body was near the front of the car they had loaded. It was doubled up with the face downward. An hour before the body was recovered, the Rev. E. T. Fisher, pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic church, Midland, went to the scene to administer the conditional rites of absolution. Later, he went to the Mills home to comfort the sorrowing family. Abbott said the men had been engaged in tunneling work and had set a set of timber as ordered. Both were experienced miners and were regarded as very capable, he said. Asked as to his opinion of the cause of the fall, Abbott replied, "It was one of those unforeseen things." He declined to comment further.

Occurred at 2 p.m.

Murphy placed the time of the cave-in at 2 p.m. Their plight was discovered less than an hour later when Abbott sent David Brown to check on them when they failed to appear at the change of shifts. Then rescue workers swung into speedy action. The pair had just finished loading a car, according to Murphy, who said that just before the crash, he had commented, "That's a load." To which he said Mills replied, "Yes, there's over two tons on that one." Those were Mill's last words. That last car they loaded was the fourth one out of that "place" today, Murphy said, although they had loaded several others out of the heading nearby. Hundreds of persons crowded the scene of the tragedy, including miners from nearby operations, who stood by, as is the custom, in case they should be needed for the rescue work.

First Fatality Since 1938

The mishap into which District Mine Inspector Powers was to launch an immediate probe, was the first mine fatality in this area since January 1938, when John Cosgrove was killed in a similar manner here. Murphy (sic-should be Mills) served overseas during the World war and was wounded in action. He was a member of the Holy Name Society of Midland, the Knights of Columbus of Frostburg, and the Midland Volunteer Fire Company. Surviving are his mother, Mrs. Joseph Mills, Sr., Westernport; his wife, Mrs. Nellie McGowan Mills, seven children ranging in age from 7 to 13, Regis, Joseph, Jr., Maryjohn, Bernadette, Brennan, William and Paul; and four brothers and six sisters."
