DEVLIN, Harry

"Connellsville, Pa., Dec 25-Another name has been added to the long death list resulting from the Duquesne Limited wreck on the Baltimore & Ohio, at Dawson, on Wednesday night. Harry Devlin, one of the three remaining patients at the Cottage State hospital, died at 10 o'clock today. The total dead now number 65, and this probably completes the list as the two still at the hospital are doing well and will probably recover. Devlin's home was at Lonaconing, Md. Special services for the dead were held in all the Protestant churches of the Coke regions today and after the burial of Father Fienello, which will take place tomorrow, the Catholic churches will hold mass for the dead. The bodies of about thirty of the victims were taken on early trains. Those remaining identified will be shipped within the next twenty-four hours and the unknowns, will be cared for by the borough council. A special meeting has been held to form a relief committee to look after bodies unidentified or unclaimed. In case no friends appear the citizens will see that the victims are not buried in the Potter's Field."

DeWALT, Frank K.
 
SKELETON FOUND IN MINE THAT OF MISSING HUSBAND
What may prove to be a 10-year-old murder came to light in the Allegheny county morgue in Pittsburg when Mrs. Georgia DeWalt of Scottdale expressed the belief that the skeleton of a man found Saturday in the Rock Run mine, Mifflin township, was that of her husband who disappeared under mysterious circumstances in December of 1925. Beside the skeleton was a hat bearing the initials, 'F. K D. ', a pair of shoes and parts of clothing which Mrs. DeWalt identified as her husband's, who was a co-operator of the mine which was abandoned about two years after he vanished. Having read about the discovery in a newspaper, Mrs. DeWalt went to Pittsburg yesterday and with her she took a piece of material from one of her husband's suits, which Deputy Coroner Stanley Guzenski found matched the clothing of the skeleton. Mrs. DeWalt, who lived in a small house near the mine at the time her husband disappeared, said a thorough search of the workings was made at the time. Before his death, she said her husband had differences with a man and on this she based a theory of foul play. John B. Williamson, 805 Grant street, Turtle Creek, a contractor, and Edward Derr of Coal Valley, discovered the skeleton in water while the former was making a check to ascertain whether enough coal was still available to warrant renewed, mining operations. Although Mrs. DeWalt insisted a thorough search of the mine had been made, Deputy Coroner Mullen Jackson, who visited the scene, said the chamber where the skeleton was found was several hundred feet back from the opening, but was in no wise secluded. Mrs. DeWalt did not make formal identification for record but after Superintendent John P. Black of the morgue had been consulted, said she would return to do so today. Her husband, F. K. DeWalt, was a partner of a B. Volt of McKeesport who died two years ago, the woman said.

DeWALT, Frank K.
 
PITTSBURG - Aug. 14 - Mrs. Georgia DeWalt, Scottdale, was of the opinion today that her husband Frank K. DeWalt whose skeleton, was found in an abandoned mine passageway, had been murdered. According to Mrs. DeWalt, her husband had frequent quarrels with business associates immediately before his disappearance 10 years ago. A thorough search of the passageway by county detectives disproved the theory that, DeWalt hanged himself, they said, since there was no ledge or projection to which be could have attached a noose. An X ray examination of the skeleton disclosed no traces of bullet wounds. Chief of County Detectives George Murren stated that he will continue his investigation.
