GARLITZ, Henry
ROBINSON, Morgan

"Life Long Friends Die Same Day. Singular Deaths With Many Coincidences in Life and Death
Henry Garlitz and Morgan Robinson died about ten days ago on Pea Ridge in Garrett county. They lived on adjoining farms for most of their lives and their dual deaths came within an hour of each other.  Their ages were the same, verging on 80 years; always near neighbors, of the same politics (Democratic) and religion (Catholics) and buried in the same cemetery at St. Ann's church nearby. They were two good, honest, law-abiding citizens.  No one ever had just cause to complain of either of them.  Their places in usefulness can not soon be filled.  Both left children and grandchildren.  Robinson left a widow, but the wife of Garlitz died some years ago.  He was the last son of Christian Garlitz, who died in 1868.  They were both of old Allegany county stock with large family ramifications.

GARLITZ, Mrs. Leah

WATCHING HIS VICTIM'S FUNERAL ~ Garlitz Looks On from the Jail Window as the Cortege Passes.
[Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun.]
Cumberland, MD., March 28.--The funeral of Mrs. Leah Garlitz, who was shot by her husband, took place this afternoon at 3 o'clock from her father's residence, on Maryland avenue. The body was dressed in black and ruching was arranged on the neck so that the wounds were concealed. The remains were in a handsome walnut casket, upon the lid of which were the words "At Rest". The floral tributes were numerous and beautiful. An immense concourse of people gathered about the house, and a large number of carriages and many pedestrians composed the funeral cortege. There were services at the house, conducted by Rev. M. T. McCormick, of Christ Reformed Espiscopal Church, assisted by Rev. W. E. Bird, of Kingsley M. E. Church. The funeral train passed through the principal streets on its way to Rose Hill Cemetery, where the interment took place, and throngs of people gathered on the sidewalks as it passed. The 3-year-old little girl of the dead woman was not taken to the grave. Garlitz, in a conversation with the sheriff this morning, asked him when his wife would be buried and what minister would officiate. Being informed of the facts and that the funeral would pass near the jail, he expressed a desire to see it. The sheriff informed him that his request would be granted. Accordingly, when the funeral procession passed the intersection of Prospect and Washington streets, he was brought by the  sheriff to the office window of the jail and there permitted to view the funeral. He followed the hearse with his gaze as long as it could be seen, then turned and of his own accord walked to his cell. He did not seem to be affected by the sight, and if he felt any emotion made no outward exhibition of it by any word or sign. The prisoner has evidently been warned that he has been talking too freelly about his case and is much more reticent today. When the sheriff asked him this morning what he had done with the pistol he had he refused to speak about it. The supposition is that he threw it out of the car window somewhere between Sir John's Run and Martinsburg after he found the car doors locked on him. The pieces of the photographs that Garlitz says he tore up on Elm street just before the shooting on Tuesday night have been found, thus corroborating that part of his story.
