WERNER, Deena Rena

Asphyxiation was the cause yesterday morning of the death of a Frostburg infant who was pronounced dead on arrival at Miners Hospital, authorities said. Deena Rena Werner, six and a half months old, had caught her head between the mattress and side of her bed, they added. She was a daughter of Ronald J. and Salley E. (Pape) Werner of 50 Oak Street. The child was found by her mother about 11 a.m. Mrs. Werner took the baby in her arm, and attempted to revive the child by mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Mrs. Werner immediately contacted Mrs. Olive Thomas, Center Street, from whom the Werner family rents the home, and ran out into the street with the child. Alexander M. Rowe Jr., owner of the Rowe Home Improvements, Frostburg, who was working nearby, took the two women and the baby to the hospital. Mrs. Werner, concerned for the life of her baby, rushed out of the house without putting on her shoes. When they arrived at the hospital, the child was pronounced dead. An autopsy performed by the deputy county medical examiner's office indicated the child died of axphyxiation. The child was born on July 6, 1966. Besides her parents, she is survived by a brother, Ronald P. Werner, 4, at home, her maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Pape, Eckhart and her paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Myles Werner, Finzel. The body is at the Durst Funeral Home, Frostburg. Services will be conducted at the funeral home tomorrow at 1 p.m. Rev. J. Henry Kersch, assistant pastor of St. Michael's Catholic Church, will officiate. Interment will be in the Finzel Cemetery.

WERNER, Frederick

BORN AT SEIFERS HAUSEN
Eight Children Survive - Mrs. George Horchler, of Cumberland, Being One of Them-Leaves 48 Grandchildren and 22 Great-Grandchildren
The Rockwood Leader prints the following interesting sketch of the late Frederick Werner, who died at Finzel, Maryland, last Thursday morning at his home near Finzel, and ,just across Mason and Dixon's line. Frederick Werner, the eldest of a family of six Werner brothers, who in the early fifties of the century made America their adopted home, died, aged 80 years, 8 months and 20 days. Mr. Werner was born at Seifers Hausen in the district of Rotenburg, Germany. His father was Adam Werner and his mother's maiden name was Annie Catherine Sass. The father of Adam Werner was August Werner. With the rest of a numerous family young Frederick was reared to a life of unusual hardships. He, however, received the thorough schooling of the compulsory education system of Germany up to the age of 14. At the age of 18 he entered upon the three years' military service prescribed by the law of the Fatherland and when, in 1848 war broke out between Germany and Denmark, over the German Danish provinces of Schleswick Holstein, he was in line for real military service. After completing his military service he sailed for America, landing at Baltimore and working his way westward as far as Meyers Mill, now Meyersdale, where in 1852, he got permanent employment with Peter Meyers. Here he was soon joined by his brother, Henry, and together they earned the money required to bring across their parents and their four brothers: George, Christian, Paul and Conrad, all of whom settled down near Meyersdale. After them came at least a score of families of relatives who have scattered over the southeastern townships of Somerset county. Early in life Frederick Werner married Barbara Deist, who died last year. They had 9 children, eight of whom survive: William, Christian and Adam, of Finzel, Md.; Simon, of Meyersdale; Eliza, (Conrad) of New Castle, Pa.: Mary (Steinly) of Finzel, Md., Susan (Shockey) of Deal, and Mrs. Geo. Horchler, of Cumberland. He also leaves 48 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. Mr. Werner was a man of rare good judgment, conservative in his business exploits and universally successful. His plantation near Finzel originally comprised (four 1OO-acre State plots of fine agriculture land, which he later parceled out to his sons.) He had a most kindly disposition, was a devout member of the German Reformed Church and leaves to his offspring a rich legacy of a life lived for the attainment of the highest ideals. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place at the Greenville township Union church last Saturday, where Rev. Shupe, the Reformed pastor, paid a glowing tribute to the life of the departed.

James B. Werner, 84 years old, one of the old-line type of newspaper editors, died recently in Somerset Community Hospital. He was a lifelong resident of Somerset, having been born there, a son of the late Edward and Vesta Critchfield Werner. Prior to 1929, when the American became Somerset's first daily newspaper, there were four weekly publications. One was the Democrat. Its editor was Mr. Werner. The last issue was printed just a little more than two years ago. "Jim" Werner was also known in Connellsville. There were times prior to the Twenties, when he sat at the city desk of The Daily Courier lending assistance in emergencies. Werner's weekly Democrat was the last of the four in Somerset to come to the end of the line. The other three perished in the depression days. Despite difficult times, Werner's determination kept him in business. He was a member of the First Christian Church of Somerset, a World War l veteran, and a member of the Somerset Barracks of the Veterans of World War I, the S.S. Grouse Post of The American Legion, and the V.F.W. Post No. 554 of Somerset. In addition to his widow he is survived by two daughters: Kathryn of Somerset and June of Pittsburgh, and a step-daughter, Mrs. James L. Johnson of Pomona, Calif.

WERNER, (John) Thomas

Mr. (John) Thomas Werner, who lives in Garrett county, near Flnzel, met with an accident on Wednesday that resulted in almost instant death. Mr. Werner was a young man, aged 22, and all his life he has been fond of hunting game, especially rabbits, and during the season spends much of his time in the woods hunting his favorite game. On Wednesday morning, with a companion, he started for the woods in the best of spirits, saying goodby to his wife and two small children, saying he would be gone the greater part of the day. After being in the woods for some time his dogs succeeded in driving a rabbit into a hole. Mr. Werner had set his gun against a small tree while he and his companion dug for the rabbit. When about to leave he reached for his gun, catching It by the muzzle, and pulled it toward him, and in doing so the hammer caught on a small limb, causing the gun to discharge Itself, the entire charge entering his neck, just below the jaw, and lodged in the brain, killing him instantly. He was a young man of good habits and highly respected in the community in which he lived. He is survived by bis wife and two children, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Adam Werner, and several brothers and sisters. The funeral will take place on Saturday. Interment will be made near Pocahontas in Garrett county.

WERNER, William

William Werner, of Mt. Savage, was found dead yesterday near a path crossing Little Savage Mountain, about three milea from Finzel, Garrett county. Mr. Werner, who lived in Mt. Savage, was employed as foreman of the fire clay mine of the Union Mining Company on Savage Mountain. He spoke of not feeling well while at work Saturday afternoon, and leaving the mining property about 5 o'clock told other workers that he intended going across the mountain to his farm, the Werner home place, near Pocahontas, Pa. There is a path leading across tho mountain from the mine toward Pocahontas. Mr. Werner's family, at Mt. Savago, expected him home Saturday night, but when he did not return, thought he had gone to the farm and would return early Sunday morning. Noting his continued absence Sunday, his family became alarmed and his son, Herbert Werner, and son-in-law. Wm. Norris, went across the mountain to look for him. Shortly before 2 o'clock, the young men came upon the body, lying by the side of the path on top of the mountain. The body was discovered shortly before that by Wm. Baker who lives near the Werner farm and was passing that way. The county officers were notified and the coroner, County Investigator Terrence Boyle and Deputy Sheriff David Mason went to the scene. An investigation showed there were no marks of violence on the body and no evidence of foul play. Mr. Werner's pocketbook, money, watch and other personal effects seemed not to have been disturbed. From the condition of the body and the fact that the weather was slightly above zero on the mountain top Saturday night, the officers opined that death was caused by exposure and freezing. The body was removed to the Durst undertaking establishment in Frostburg to be prepared for burial. Mr. Werner was 42 years old. He was son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Christian Werner, of Pocahontas, Pa. He is survived by his widow who was a Miss Bayer (sic, Baer) of Pocahontas, and five children - Mrs. Wm. Norris; Herbert Werner, aged 16 years; Regis, aged 14; Kenneth, aged 10; and Helen, aged 2. He leaves two sisters—Mrs. John Arklin and Mrs. Joseph Clark, and one brother, Simon Werner, all residing at Pocahontas, Pa.
