FISHER, Conrad

PASSED AWAY ~ Conrad Fisher, the Last of the Old Stage Drivers
Mr. Conrad Fisher died Saturday at 8 o clock, a.m., at his residence on Hanover street, aged seventy-one years.  With the death of Mr. Fisher passes away the last of the stage drivers of the old National Pike, the deceased having driven stage between this city and Somerset for years.  Many are the thrilling stories he used to relate of the hair breadth escapes he had from highwaymen during those days. On one of these occasions as he was driving through a dark like ravine he saw ahead of him a fence erected across the road. He knew well what that meant, and urging his horses to a rapid gate he was able to land his passengers safe on the opposite side of the fence just as the surprised highwaymen emerged with drawn revolvers from their hiding place. He had several attempted hold-ups, but was always able to land his passengers and the mail safely. He was also connected with the Baltimore and Ohio railroad company here as car inspector for thirty years. The last two years of his life prior to the affliction which gradually caused his death, was spent as watchman at Williams street crossing.  He had been ill about one year. Sometime ago he had some teeth extracted which shattered his jaw, causing an abscess to form, and which gradually worked its way to his throat. He was able to be about the house until one week ago.  The deceased was well and favorably known. Besides a wife, he leaves the following children: Frank, John, George and Charles Fisher, and Mrs. Howard Oglebayall of this city.

FITZPATRICK,  William Joseph

Lonaconing Bureau of the Evening Times Lonaconing Md, Nov 19
The funeral of William Fitzpatrick, who died in a hospital at Cumberland last Mon, will take place from St. Gabriel's church, Barton, tomorrow at 9 A.M.  Interment will be made in the Catholic cemetery below in Barton. William Fitzgerald(sic) will be missed in Pekin.  He was a good man in every acception of the word.  Honest, industrious and kindly.  He had the esteem of all who knew him.  Recently, he spent a great deal of money to re-open abandoned coal mines near Pekin.  It was a brave venture, but William Fitzpatrick had worked long in the coal mines and he knew how to get out coal.  His venture was successful, and had he lived he would have demonstrated that much of the abandoned coal which the theorists and the commercial course miners left behind them could be mined at a profit.  His death is a loss to this community.
