MOSHOLDER, Harry M.

Pathetic clrcumstances surround the injury near Hyndman yesterday morning of Harry M. Mosholder, a Connellsville division freight brakeman living here. Mr. Mosholder was struck by No. 48 at South Hampton and was so badly injured that his life was despaired of. He was taken to the Allegany hospital at Cumberland, but up to noon today, the family here had not heard whether the injuries proved fatal. Mr. Mosholder, about 22 years of age, was married about four years ago to Mrs. Cora Mosholder, the daughter of Chief of Police George Hetzel. Mrs. Mosholder was widowed by the death of Clarence Mosholder, her first husband and brother of Harry Mosholder, who was killed while at work on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Chief Hetzel and Mrs. Mosholder left last evening for Cumberland, but at the Hill street home of the Chief, no word had been received from them. On the streets this morning, it was reported that young Mosholder had succumbed to his injuries. The couple have three children.
