MOONEY, William J. (also FOUTCH, Charles & HAMMOND, William P.)

W. J. MOONEY DIED AT HOME EARLY TODAY ~ Had Been With Foutch Yesterday—W. P. Hammond Victim of Wood Alcohol Poison
County authorities are expected to investigate into sudden deaths of two local white men today, who, the Police Department believe, are the victims of poisonous liquor. One man is believed by police to be Charles "Cotton" Foutch, about 45, who had lived in a shack on lower Canal street, in the rear of the Crystal Laundry plant. He was found in a dying condition this morning in the shack and died at the Allegany Hospital a half hour later.
The other is William J. Mooney, aged 40, a laborer, who died early this morning at his home, 1004 Grape Alley, from undetermined causes.
William P. Hammond, 27, 573 Arnett Terrace, died suddenly Thursday night in Winchester, Va., while on a visit to relatives, of wood alcohol poisoning according to the county coroner at Winchester.
Foutch In Agony When Found
Foutch was found by Officers Raymond Johnston and John W. Smallwood lying on the floor of the shack about 10:30 o'clock this morning. Two men, Dewey Emerson and John Allen, had reported to the police that there was a sick man in a shack on Canal street. Foutch appeared in great agony, his hands clenched, mouth open, and in a semi-stupor, the officers said. He was placed in the patrol ambulance and taken to the Allegany Hospital. He was in a dying condition and lived only a short while after being examined by Dr. Charles Zimmerman. His body was removed to the Stein Funeral Home. The officers said they found nothing in the shack that would indicate that Foutch had been drinking, nor were they able to detect the odor of liquor on him.
Mooney Apparently Sober
William J. Mooney, age 38 years, unmarried, died at the home of his parents, Andrew and Johanna Mooney, 1004 Grape alley at 10:30 this morning. According to a statement from Andrew Mooney, his son came home last night around 10:30 o'clock and was apparently sober. He made some comment to Mrs. Mooney, his mother, about some-one dying or some-one dropping along the "Tow Path" when he was on his way home. The family was not certain as to just what the statement was, and Mrs. Mooney could not be interviewed. Andrew Mooney was emphatic about his son being sober and stated. "When he came in last night I never dreamed he would be a corpse this morning". Mr. Mooney claimed that during the night he heard his son coughing and called to him asking if he "wanted anything". His son said "no", and Mooney claimed he did not know he was sick until this morning when he appeared worse, and a physician was summoned. The actual cause of the death is vague, and physicians state Mooney was dying when they arrived. It has been determined however that Mooney had been "down along the tow path with some of the boys" and it is possible that his death may have been due to poison liquor. According to advice received by local authorities, Mooney and Foutch had been seen together yesterday. Mooney is survived, besides his parents, by one brother, Michael, and three sisters, Mrs. Margaret Litton, Thomas street, Mrs. Julia Frame, Pioneer Place and Mrs. Johanna Thomas, North Centre street.

MOORE, Rev. J. H.

Washington, Dec 12 - A man not fully identified but believed to have been Rev. J. H. Moore, former pastor of the Presbyterian church at Keyser, was found dead in a lodging house here today. The police believe death resulted from heart disease but are conducting a further investigation.
The above telegram was received here yesterday morning.  Mr. Moore left here Wednesday on train No 14 for Washington, arriving there about ten o'clock. On going to his room he complained of not feeling well and about 11:30 o'clock was found dead in his bed. He had not been feeling well for some time, but no one thought there was any reason for alarm.  Mr. Moore was about 64 years of age, and leaves a wife, three daughters and three sons. He was pastor of the Presbyterian church here for about fifteen years until, six years ago, when he resigned. For a time he was pastor of three different churches, but for the past couple of years he had no regular charge and stayed most of the time at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Griffith, his wife being in Baltimore. His children are at different places, all employed, but John, who is in school at Lexington. Mr. Griffith went to Washington yesterday morning to look after the remains. The burial will probably take place at the native home of the deceased at Charles Town.

MORAN, Patrick 

“Drowned In The River-An Ashbank Gave Way and Plunged Patrick Moran Into a Watery Grave-This morning Patrick Moran, an employe of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad at Piedmont, was pushing ashes out on the “ash dump” which was located near the river, when the “dump,” which was undermined by water, gave in, and Mr. Moran was plunged headlong into the great volume of ice and water and drowned. His body at this writing has not yet been found. The matter has created great excitement at Piedmont and Westernport. Mr. Moran was well up in years and was a faithful employe. He leaves surviving him a wife and four grown children.”

Moran were held at the home of his mother, Mrs. Sarah Moran, 215 Hammond street, at 4:30 o'clock with the Rev. Clyde W. Ash, pastor at Trinity Methodist Church, officiating.

Accord Military Honors- Full military honors were accorded for Michael, the Kalbaughs, and Gilmore, by Victory Post 155, American Legion, assisted by Barton Post 189 and Kelly-Mansfield Post 52 of Piedmont. Potomac Fire Company conducted rites at the graves at Philos cemetery for Charles Kalbaugh, Michael, Gilmore and Moran. Members of Potomac Fire Company and Tri-Towns Fire Company in uniform attended all five funerals. {Pallbearers for all are listed}.

Timothy Gilmore-A native of Thomas, Timothy Gilmore was a son of Mrs. Grace Shaffer Gilmore, Oakland and the late Timothy M. Gilmore. He spent most of his earlier youth in Crellin and and was a graduate of Oakland high school.
During World War II, he served as a tank driver with the Army in Africa and Italy and was wounded in the chest. After the war, he served six years with the Maryland State Police, resigning last February to become a guard at the Allegany Ballistics lab at Pinto. He was a member of Victory Post, American Legion, and Potomac Fire Company. Besides his mother, he is survived by his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Guy Gilmore, 122 Johnson Street, Westernport; three brothers, Harold Gilmore, Webster Springs, W. Va.; John W. Gilmore, Layfayette, Indiana, and Glenn Gilmore, Terra Alta and two sisters, Mrs. Margaret Kershetaky, Delano, Pa., and Mrs. Hazel Parsons, Hambleton, W. Va.

Richard D. Moran, son of Mrs. Sarah Moran and the late Edward S. Moran, former mayor of Westernport, was a native of the town and a graduate of Bruce high school. He was a manager of the Moran Trucking Company in which he was associated with his brothers. He was a member of Trinity Methodist Church and Potomac Fire company.

Besides his mother, he leaves four brothers, Marshall, Clyde, Thomas and Paul, all of Westernport, and two sisters, Mrs. Charles Floto, Cumberland, and Mrs. Oliver Long, Arlington, Va.

Police Version of Accident- The accident occurred about 4:52 Sunday morning. The time was established by a broken watch on the wrist of Richard Moran. Trooper First Class, A. M. Sploch, of the Maryland State Police, who investigated, said that Gilmore, driving Moran's 1951 hardtop convertible, had just rounded a bend and apparently was confused by the headlights of another vehicle parked along Gilmore's side of the road. Apparently thinking the recently relocated road lay to the right of the headlights, Gilmore swerved off the road onto a gravel shoulder. By the time he realized his mistake, it was too late to stop. The car skidded several hundred feet, careened back to the road, and smashed against the front of the parked car. Four of the victims were thrown from the car with only Earl Kalbaugh and Richard Michael still in the back seat. Sploch said all of the dead except Charles Kalbaugh died instantly. Witnesses said Kalbaugh called for help then crawled under a fence at the George M. Barton farm and died of internal injuries. Dr. H. V. Deming, deputy county medical examiner, said the others died of skull fractures, internal injuries and neck fractures.

James. F. Thompson, the sixth occupant, was thrown from the vehicle and later was moved to Sacred Heart hospital, Cumberland, where he is recovering from his injuries.

Occupant of Parked Car Hurt.

Miss Joreetta Proudfoot,21, of Rowlesburg, the only occupant of the parked car, sustained severe lacerations of the face and eyes when her head was thrown through the windshield by the impact. She told police she had been drowsy and thought she was dreaming when she saw the other car careening wildly towards her. Lewis H. Allwine, 24, of Highland, N. J., operator of the parked car, stated that he and his brother, Ernest, had pulled off to the left side of the road when they were flagged by Wilbur Fresh, a stranded motorist, of Akron, O., who had developed engine trouble.  Gilmore's wife, Mrs. Betty Guy Gilmore, arrived at the scene of the accident about two hours later, unaware of her husband's death. Police said she was anxious over her husband's failure to return home and she stopped at the scene as officers were preparing to leave."

MORAN, Thomas

The Disaster at Westernport - Further Particulars

The two men, Messrs Thomas Hogan (not Mullan as erroneously reported by our Daily) and Thomas Moran, killed by the boiler explosion at Westernport on Tuesday were buried according to the rites of the Catholic Church in the cemetery of that denomination in Westernport Wednesday.  At the time of the explosion, the engineer had his hand on the throttle of the engine and was in the act of starting from the yard.  The indicator marked 105 pounds according to the dying statement of Mr Hogan who lived in great agony three hours after receiving his injuries.  The explosion threw him with sufficient force against the front of Kildow's Hall to damage the framework of the building.  Portions of his clothing were afterward found sticking to the front wall and marking the point of contact between his person and the house.  He leaves a wife and one child in Piedmont, W Va.  

The fireman, Thomas Moran, was an unmarried man.  He was thrown high in the air and falling downward came in contact with a fence over which his brains were scatted in all directions.  Kildow's Hall, the building nearest on one side of the railroad, was considerably racked.  The windows were demolished and the furniture of the Lodge Room badly damaged, the most of it being ruined by water, steam and fragments of the engine and boiler.  The charts, pictures and etc of the different orders (we understand that seven different associations and secret societies used the room) were almost utterly ruined while the plaster was knocked down from the ceiling and walls in many places.  The first floor which is used as a store was very little injured, the goods only suffering a considerable shaking up from the concussion.  The Nesbitt residence, on an eminence about twenty-five yards above the railroad, and opposite Kildow's Hall was much injured by a piece of the exploded boiler  which pierced the front wall.  Greater damage would have been done but for the porch, which broke the effect of the missle.  Among the many narrow escapes recorded is that of two little children in a house adjoining Nesbitt property.  They had been looking from a window, and were called away a few moments before the explosion by their mother and just in time to escape a heavy fragment of the boiler which entered the window alluded to and passed through the house. The scene immediately after the disaster was photographed by a Piedmont artist.  The wreck has been entirely removed and the injured buildings are fast undergoing repair.  Cumberland Mountain City Times; Cumberland, Allegany Co, Md., Saturday, May 9, 1874 - pg 3, col 3; Find A Grave Memorial# 174807300 - Thomas Hogan;  Find A Grave Memorial# 174807392 - Thomas Moran (Courtesy of Pat Dailey)  Posted January 7, 2017
