CONDRY, James
BLANTT, Joseph
HAMILTON,William

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT WASHINGTON MINE No. 5 ~ Three Men Killed and Thirteen Others Injured by Collision on Incline Early This Morning - Two of Latter May Die ~ MEN WERE GOING UP PLANE TO WORK
Special to the Times--Westernport, Md., Jan. 25 - A dreadful accident occurred at 6:30 o'clock this morning at Washington Mine No. 5 of the Piedmont and George's Creek Coal Co., near Franklin, Md., of which Mr. M. P. Fahey is superintendent, in which three men were killed instantly and thirteen others were badly, and one or two perhaps fatally injured.

The Killed
Jos. Blantt, Italian laborer
William Hamilton, blacksmith, of Franklin
James Condry, dumpman, of Franklin

The Injured
Kirk, a brakeman on the mine electric motor, injured in the arm and chest. He resides at Barton and will recover.
Edward Kight, carpenter, injured seriously about the head. [died later, at 12:20 p.m., same day]
John and Louis Tucci, Italian laborers. Joseph hurt about the head, Louis in the legs and chest.
L. C. Lambert, leg broken; resides at Reb's station, near Westerport.
W. H. Smith, weightmaster, shoulder blade broken and injured in the back; resides at Reb's station.
James Gowan, laborer, face cut; resides at Barton.
George Hamilton, miner, face cut; resides at Franklin.
Ed Frazenbaker, roadsman, hurt about arm; resides at Westernport.
Thomas Murphy, fireman, eyes and back injured.

Escaped Injury
Earnest Phillips and Clarence McAllister, both of Franklin, escaped injury. Murphy was on the descending loaded cars; the others were all on the ascending empties. None of the cars were thrown from the track by collision.

How it Happened
As stated, the accident happened on the incline plane during the first trip of the day. The ascending cars are always empty and they meet the descending loads at an automatic switch half way up the incline. Here, of course, if the switch is properly set, they pass each other, keep to the track to the right and there is seldom any difficulty in passing. William Stowell, a lad sixteen or seventeen years old, is charged with setting the switch, and it is thought that in some way he neglected to perform his duty properly and hence the trips collided while going at a high speed. The men were all riding up the incline on their way to work in or about the mines.
Condry and Blantt were killed instantly. Hamilton died at 8:30 o'clock this morning. Father Quinn, of Barton, and Scarpatti, of Morantown, were quickly on the scene.

 

Store Turned Into Hospital
The injured in the mine accident have all been taken to Gannon's store at Franklin, which has been turned into a temporary hospital. All the physicians of Piedmont and Westernport are in attendance.

 

Kight Has Since Died
Since the above story was written Mr. Edward Kight has died. Mr. L. C. Lambert and the three Italians who were seriously injured were taken to the Hoffman Hospital at Keyser. Mr. Kight died at 12:20. The others who were injured were taken to their homes, none of whom were seriously injured.
Mr. Lambert and the three Italians were reported in a critical condition at 4 o'clock.

Caught between an empty and a loaded pit car i the Trotter mines yesterday while perfoming another's uty, John Kight, aged 62 (?52), for 15 years boss driver in the Trotter mines and for about 25 years an employe at the mines, was killed. His abdomen and chest were so crushed that death was instant. When one of the loaded cars that was slowly drifting towards the bottom of the shaft was thrown off the track as the line of cars hit the heavy wire rope that had fallen across the mine track, Kight attempted to get the car back on the track. He hust had taken hold of the car when it was hit by the other cars that drifted slowly in that direction. That contact threw the car against which Kight was pushing, almost half way across the track and crushed him against the side of an empty dcar standing on the adjoining track. Several men, who had worked with Kight for a number of years, were witnesses of the accident, but it hajppened so quickly that they were unable to render assistance., The cars were running so slowly that they did not believe that the crash was sufficient to place the car in the shape that it did. They saw the life crushed out of Kight and went to his assistance immediately. When the cars were lifted to one side, Kight's lifeless body dropped to the ground. A physician was called but his services were not necessary. The remains were removed to Stader's(?) morgue in Connellsville and will be taken to Piedmont, W. Va. for interment. A boy had been employed in the mines to watch the cars in case of an accident such as occurred yesterday, but for some unknown reason Kight did not wait for the boy to perform the duties assigned to him. Coroner Harry J. Bell was notified of Kight's death and after an investigation decided to hold an inquest, the date of which has not been set. The following members of the coroner's jury was selected by Coroner Bell: J. L. Evans, W. F. Shotts, W. J. Baer, H. G. Berlin, J. G. German and I H. Prinker.

His friends were legion, especially along the Baltimore and Ohio railroad between this city and west of Piedmont, where he was known to almost everyone. Mr. Kight was a nephew of the late Joshua Kight of Westernport, once a county commissioner of Allegany County. He is survived by his mother and two sisters. His mother has married since the death of her first husband and is now Mrs. James T. Long, residing at Amesworth, Iowa.

KILCOIN, Bartholomew

South Cumberland, Monday ~ Mr. Bartholomew Kilcoin died yesterday at the home of his daughter, Mrs Bernard H. Doll, 92 Elder street, where he had been making his home for several months past.  Mr Kilcoin was 85 years of age and was a man well known and much esteemed throughout Allegany county, having resided in this vicinity for more than fifty years. He was born in County Sligo, Ireland, and left his native county to settle in the United States in 1849, coming across the Atlantic.  Mr. Kilcoin endured trying experiences of which he often spoke to his associates later in life. The vessel in which he sailed was shipwrecked and he was ten weeks and three days on sea and during the greater part of that time neither he or his companions expected ever to see land again,  It was in [the] month of January 1850 when he reached New York.  Shortly afterward he came to Cumberland, the farthest point westward reached by the Baltimore and Ohio railroad in those days.  Mr Kilcoin first found employment upon farms in the Murley Branch Valley and later went to the estate of Mr. John H. Piper at Flintstone, where he remained three years.  In March, 1855 he sent to Ireland for his wife and child Luke Kilcoin, who was born during his absence. For several years afterward Mr Kilcoin was employed in the old Flintstone tannery, then in charge of the late Col Charles Gilpin, and upon leaving that industry leased the farm of Dr T. P. Robossoson in that district and spent the remainder of his active days chiefly in agricultural pursuits.  In August, 1864, Mr Kilcoin returned to Ireland with his family. He returned to Cumberland in April 1865 and rented the Whalen farm on the Baltimore pike, now the country place of Mr C. L. Bretz, where he remained four years until he purchased the Mrs Farrell farm on the Williams Road where he resided until declining years caused him to retire from active work a few years ago.  Mr. Kilcoin was an ardent, enthusiastic Democrat, who never missed casting his ballot at election time, although he never thought of seeking office.   His first vote was early in the civil war, when soldiers guarded the polls.  Mr. Kilcoin's wife died in October 1890. He is survived by three children, Mr. Luke Kilcoin, of Bedford, Pa, Mrs. Winifred Doll, wife of Bernard H. Doll, of South Cumberland, and Mr Anthony Kilcoin, also of South Cumberland. Two brothers of the deceased are living in Ireland. Another brother, Mr. John Kilcoin, formerly of Cumberland, died a few months ago in Johnstown, Pa.   Mr Kilcoin had been a member of St. Patrick's church since coming to this city, more than a half century ago. The funeral arrangements have not been definitely decided upon, but the obsequies will probably take place at St. Patrick's church Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock.   Evening Times; Cumberland, Allegany Co, Md., Monday, May 28, 1906 - pg 5, col 1; Find A Grave Memorial# 169031771   (Courtesy of Pat Dailey)  Posted August 29, 2016

KILROY, Mrs Mary, wife of Thomas &
KILROY, Mrs. Mary, mother of Thomas

Fate has dropped a fell hand upon Thomas Kilroy, miner, and his family, of Meyersdale, according to reports received here. Kilroy's wife died. Then he followed his mother to her grave. When he returned from the second funeral, he found his infant daughter, painfully, perhaps fatally, burned. Kilroy himself was injured badly by a fall down the stairs of his home. Lockjaw is feared. Kilroy is about 40 years old. He was employed at the mines around Meyersdale and worked steadily until a short time ago. About 15 years ago, Kilroy was married. Seven children came to him and his wife, Mary, their ages range from 14 to 5 years. When October's chill winds killed the leaves, they wafted death into the Kilroy cottage. Mrs. Kilroy sickened and died. The seven children were cared for by Mrs. Mary Kilroy, the bereaved man's mother. Again death stalked into the stricken home. The grandmother lay on her bed, one night, never to rise. She was buried last week, not far from the new grave of her daughter-in-law. From his mother's funeral, Kilroy went home to find his youngest girl severely burned on the body. As he stood in the cemetery, she had played near the cook stove. Her clothing caught fire. The other children had beaten out the flames in time to save their sister from death. Kilroy was distracted. Work was lacking and he hunted for a place to earn bread for his children and himself. He came back, sick, a few nights ago, and two of the children helped him to bed. He arose in the night, wandered to the stairway, and fell down. Moaning, he was picked up by his children and assisted to bed. The he lapsed into unconsciousness. The children, thought, for the greater part of a day, their father was asleep. When evening came and he did not rise as usual, they became alarmed. Word was sent to neighbors, and inquiry revealed that Kilroy was hurt severely. His jaws set a day later as if lockjaw had attacked him. A doctor was summoned. He opened Kilroy's mouth, allaying the first fear of tetanus. Kilroy's mind is affected, it is said. He has not been able to tell definitely how his plunge down the stairway occurred. Neighbors are caring for Kilroy and his children. Food, fuel, clothing and bedding have been supplied.

KIMBLE, Andrew

MOUNT STORM  April 18, 1911 - Andrew Kimble, the noted teamster and a very aged man, was found dead yesterday along the road near Difficult bridge. He was hauling a load of ties and it is supposed he was sleeping when the wagon ran off the road, and upset, throwing the cross ties on Mr. Kimble and mashing him to death. The sad news was such a shock to his daughter, who kept house for him that she broke down completely. Besides the daughter at home, the deceased had two sons living near Oakland and a married daughter living in Pennsylvania.
