LAMB, David
 
Death and Funeral of David Lamb
Mr. David Lamb, an aged and respected citizen of our sister town of Westernport, died at his home Friday Evening, Dec. 8, after a lingering illness of a complication of diseases, the result of several strokes of paralysis, suffered some time ago, aged about sixty years. Mr. Lam was first stricken by paralysis about three years ago while on a visit to his daughter, Mrs. Harry Cole, at Fairmont, W. Va., and strange to say the second stroke likewise happened at Fairmont, under the same circumstances, about one year later. Since that time Mr. Lamb has been a great sufferer, and for the past year or so has been practically helpless. He was one of Westernport's oldest citizens, loved and respected by all who knew him, and for many years a trusted employe of the Cumberland & Pennsylvania Railroad Company. Besides a wife, he leaves five children, two sons and three daughters, to mourn their loss. His funeral took place from the St. James P.E. Church on Sunday afternoon at two o'clock and was very largely attended. The obsequies[sic] were under the direction of Philos Lodge, No. 91, I.O.O.F., of which the deceased was an honored member for many years, and interment was in Philos cemetery.

LAMMERT, George Trimble

A 55-year-old Frostburg man was injured fatally Wednesday night when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver on West Main Street near Lemmert's Alley. The victim, according to Frostburg City Police and Maryland State Police, was George Trimble Lammert, of 72 West Main Street. Police Chief Donald Griffith said police have no clues to the identity of the driver of the car that hit Mr. Lammert as he was crossing West Main Street at 11:10 p.m. in thick fog. Mr. Lammert, who lived alone, died at 2:35 a.m. yesterday in Memorial Hospital.

Sgt. Edward Bevans and Patrolman Guy Griffith arrived with the Hafer- Sowers ambulance a few moments later. Death was attributed to multiple fractures, including a broken pelvis snd multiple other injuries. The investigation showed Mr. Lammert had purchased articles at Sluss' Store and crossed West Main Street, apparently to visit friends, Oren and Everett Lemmert. Upon finding them not at home he walked to Lemmert's Alley where he started on his fatal trip across the street, police said. Born in Frostburg, he was a son of the late G. Victor and Lucille (Trimble) Lammert. Surviving is a brother, Robert Lammert, New York City, N.Y. Services will be conducted today at 1 p.m. in the Hafer-Sowers Funeral Home by the Rev. Richard J.
