EMMART, Paul V

Paul V., aged 15, son of W. J. Emmart, near Pinto, this county, was killed in a gravel pit, late yesterday when buried under four feet of debris carried down by a large stump which had been undermined. It was necessary to use a motor truck to drag the stump from his body. Fred Wright, working with him, was slightly bruised. Wright ran to a nearby telephone and summoned aid from Pinto, four miles away. Several men hurried to the scene and rescued the body 45 minutes after the accident. Emmart was employed at the Washington Bottom Orchards, near Pinto, and was hauling gravel to the garage on the farm. He and Wright were digging the gravel out of the pit and loading it into a truck when one side of the pit gave way. Besides his parents, the youth is survived by one sister, Nellie Emmart. Funeral services will be held Sunday at Frankfort, W.Va.

EMMART, Riley

A sad affair occurred last Tuesday night. Riley, son of Johnson Emmart, who had been sick for some time with crysipelas and who has been delirious part of the time, got up from his bed about 11 o'clock. Shortly after that time his brother John, who had fallen asleep while watching him awoke and missing him called his father and a search was instituted. He was found about two o'clock in the morning about one mile up the mountain with nothing on but his night clothes. His feet were very badly frozen and he is now in a very precarious condition. He died Friday morning.
