FAHEY, Bernard T.

Bernard Fahey Asleep in Death ~ The Well Known Sexton of St Patrick's is Dead ~ Faithful To His Duty As Sexton, he was so Prompt in the Ringing of the Church Bell that People Regulated their Watches by it.  He was 63 years old.

Yesterday, a week ago, the stroke which preceded his death came, rendering him speechless in which condition he remained until the time of his dissolution.  When the end came, he passed peacefully away surrounded by his the members of the family.  A most gratifying instance to Mr Fahey and his family was that a few days before his death, his half-brother, Mr Bartley Kelley, of Dunellen, N.J. whom he had not seen in forty-six years came here to visit his sick relative and was present during his last moments.  Mr Fahey was perhaps one of the best known and most highly esteemed citizens of Cumberland, having been sexton of St Patrick's for nearly thirty years attending to his duties with a fidelity as marked in his attendance upon the services of the church. So prompt was he in the ringing of the angelus at morning, noon and evening hour that clocks and watches were regulated by it.  It is said that during the thirty years as sexton, he never missed the ringing of the angelus at the appointed times excepting when he was sick and this was rare up to the time of his recent illness.  He called the living to the services.  He bade a welcome to the New Year and signaled the Old had fled.  Mr Fahey was born in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland coming to this country when a small boy, taking up his residence in Patterson, N.J. with relatives.  He came to this city about 1869, about the time of the starting of the Baltimore & Ohio rolling ??? in which he became an employee.  Mr Fahey was married in this city, his wife being Miss Mary J O'Shea, daughter of the late Michael J O'Shea, who survives him with the following children: Messrs Michael F and Edward B, John J and Misses Agnes and Bernadette Fahey, all of whom live at family home.  He was a brother-in-law of Mr James McHugh, the well known coal dealer.  Mr Fahey was a member of the Allegany Lodge No 31 Shield of Honor and the Holy Name Society.  The funeral will take place at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning at St Patrick's Church with high requiem mass, the cortege leaving the residence at 8:40 o'clock.  Interment will be in the cemetery of the church.

FAIRFAX, William

William Fairfax, colored, aged about 55 years, was fatally shot at noon Saturday by Robert Burley, aged 15 years, also colored, following a dispute over chopping wood.  Fairfax was in the employ of Burley’s mother and they occupied a cabin on the F. C. Welton farm about two and one half miles from Cumberland.  Fairfax it is stated raised an iron cooking pot to strike young Burley, who secured a shotgun and almost tore Fairfax’s leg off with the charge of shot.  Fairfax bled to death from the wound before aid could be summoned.  Young burley escaped to Cumberland and placed under arrest at the home of a colored family on Thomas street.  He was taken from bed yesterday and removed to jail at Keyser, W. Va., the tragedy having occurred in Mineral County.  Burley is said to have been a thrifty colored lad and to have a bank account.  Burley loaded the gun with shells which he found in a cupboard and he was not long in taking aim at Fairfax, whom, he thought, according to this statement when arrested, he had shot in the ankle. He did not stop to ascertain the nature of the wound but fled to this city. Mr Welton notified the sheriff at Keyser but the Cumberland police did not receive the information until late Saturday evening.  Officer Charles O’Hara, in his brother’s automobile, and the Keyser officer, soon located Burley, who was lodged in the station house.  This was near the midnight hour. Early yesterday morning Burley was taken to Keyser.

FANNON, Mrs. Winifred

"Local Native Fire Victim-
Mrs. Winifred Fannon, 59, a former native of Cumberland, died Monday after a fire erupted in her home at Silver Spring. Montgomery County authorities blamed the fire on careless smoking. Mrs. Fannon was pronounced dead at Holy Cross Hospital from smoke inhalation and cardiac arrest. Firefighters said they were called to the Fannon home around midnight and met by the woman's husband, Edgar Fannon, 58, a native of Mt. Savage, who had suffered second degree burns over his face, shoulders and upper chest. He told authorities his wife was still inside the  house. Firemen were able to carry her from the building but efforts to revive her failed. Investigators said the fire was started by a cigarette. The couple apparently tried to put out flames before calling the fire department, they said. In addition to her husband, also surviving are a son, James Fannon, at home, and a daughter, Mrs. Ann O'Steen, College Park. Friends are being received at the Collins Funeral Home, Silver Spring. Mass of the Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday at 9 a. m. in St. John's Catholic Church, Silver Spring, and interment will be there."

FARMER, Romangus

Romangus Farmer, aged about 26 years, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Farmer, who lives near Shilon church, Hampshire Co, was drowned in Capon river while attempting to ford the stream, which was swollen from recent rains, Wednesday afternoon of last week. Richard Goode, driving one team, and young Farmer, with another, loaded with barrels, started about noon for Augusta. Mr. Goode drove across the bridge at Capon Bridge and the young man who was drowned could have done the same, but it is thought he tried to overtake the first team by fording the stream at another place. The river had risen several feet in consequence of heavy rains the night before, and when the young man drove the team into the stream the wagon was tilted and swept aside by an undercurrent, causing Mr. Farmer to be swept down the stream.
