WEIR, Capt. John

Death of Capt. John Weir - Sketch of His Life

Capt. John Weir, who has been at the point of death for several days past, died at his residence, corner Baltimore and Liberty streets, about 4 o'clock Friday afternoon. About a year past the deceased sustained a heavy fall from a buggy on Baltimore street, and was injured internally. The hemorrhages that caused his death were supposed to have resulted from these injuries. The first attack of the hemorrhage was last December and since then he has had several. He was unconscious when he died and had been since Thursday morning. He displayed wonderful vitality in so long resisting the program of the fatal disease.  The deceased was 51 years old and a native of Scotland. He came to this country when 12 years old and landed at New York. He then went to Baltimore and after remaining there some time went to Mt. Savage, where he was employed in running a stationary engine. He afterward, when but 18 years old, became a locomotive engineer on what is now the Cumberland and Pennsylvania railroad, continuing at this work until the opening of the war, when he enlisted in Company C, Second Maryland, Capt. John H. Huntley, commanding. When the latter officer was promoted to major the deceased was made captain. During the war Capt. Weir saw considerable service. After retiring from the service the deceased located in Cumberland and had been in the saloon and restaurant or hotel business up to the time of his death.  He was at one time proprietor of the old Barnum House, (now the Windsor Hotel,) under the name of "Weirs European Hotel." This did not prove a financial success, and in 1877 he gave it up and eventually returned to keeping the Belvidere restaurant, which he had been the proprietor before taking the hotel. In the fall of 1872 he was elected to the legislature on the Republican ticket and served one term. He was of genial disposition and had a large number of friends, especially in the mining region. He was a member of the Masonic Order and of Tyler Post, G. A. R. He was also a member of the Odd Fellows lodge at Mt. Savage. Capt. Weir’s mother was married a second time to a Mr. Wright, of Piedmont, since deceased, and she still resides at Piedmont. She was here some time ago, but was not able, owing to sickness, to be with him when he died. He had one brother, Mr. Thompson Weir, of Mt. Savage, who was here when he died. Several married sisters survive him. One sister, Mrs. Lippincott, is living at Grafton, and another, Mrs. Shearer, is residing in Baltimore. Mrs. Ellen Coonley and Mrs. Elizabeth Gilbert, two sisters, are in Piedmont, and there is also a half brother, George Wright, and a half sister, Lily Wright.  Capt. Weir was married to Mary, daughter of Mr. Benjamin Keeg, of Bedford county. She is a sister of Mrs. Dr H. V. Porter and Mrs. J. W. Jones. Mrs. Weir and one daughter, Miss Vollie, survive the deceased. They are greatly distressed at their sad loss, and have the sympathy of numerous friends. Notice of the funeral appears elsewhere. Published Sunday, October 21, 1883 in THE CIVILIAN, Cumberland, Maryland on page 8, col. 5. (Courtesy of Charles Riend) Posted September 9, 2016
