MASON - Hon. Roswell Mason - Chicago, Ill., Jan. 2 Hon. Roswell Mason, mayor of Chicago at the time of the great fire, died of congestion of the brain at midnight, after four weeks illness. He was born in New Harford, N.

MASON, Warren B. - Meets Death by a Folding Bed.
Warren B. MASON, Who Was Caught in a Folding Bed, Dies at His Home, - Uncle of M. J. ABERNETHY, of this City.
Mr. M. J. ABERNETHY, received the sad news of a sudden and peculiar death of his uncle, which is recorded, in this article. He went to Chicago, Tuesday, to attend the funeral.
Warren B. MASON, for eighteen years a prominent man in business circles in Chicago, died at his home, No. 148 Lincoln street, Monday morning, from injuries inflicted by the accidental closing of a folding bed the morning before.
His death occurred at 6:30 o clock Monday morning about 24 hours after the accident. The family was prostrated by the terrible accident and its fatal termination, all the more because Mr. MASON had never been in better spirits than the day before his death. From all that can be learned, his death is directly traceable to the faulty construction of the folding bed which made it liable to close suddenly, and without warning. Sunday morning Mr. MASON awoke at the usual hour, 7 o clock, and arose from his bed. After looking at his watch, he decided to return and try to sleep again. He was a very heavily built man, and it is thought that on returning to the bed he jarred the mechanism of the bed and forced the catch. The bed was a very heavy cabinet folding pattern, with drawers in front. When the bed was opened these swung around to the rear. In some way the catch which held back the heavy front was sprung, and the whole weight of the wood and iron struck Mr. Mason on the head as he was preparing to lie down, and forced his head over his chest, breaking his back at the seventh vertebrae.
A married daughter, Mrs. MARSHALL, slept in the next room to that which Mr. and Mrs. MASON occupied, and hearing the noise, called another daughter, and the combined efforts of the two were needed to lift the heavy front so that it could be seen that Mr. MASON was caught under it., and that the peculiar position in which he lay, protected Mr. MASON from injury.
A son-in-law, Harry B. WILKIE, lived down stairs in the house occupied by Mr. MASON, and he was called. With his aid, the heavy weight was lifted away, and Mr. MASON removed. He lay unconscious for some little time, and then his suffering became so intense as to require the constant use of opiates. He died at 6:30 Monday morning.
Mr. MASON had been a resident of Chicago for 28 years coming from Minneapolis. For years he was in the insurance business, but of late his attention has been turned to the promotions of various inventions. He was interested in the Chicago cotton-picker and in the Acetylene Gas Company, having an office in the Roanoke building. He was a man of most genial address and attractive disposition, and his loss will be sincerely mourned in business circles. He was 60 years old.
A coroner s jury returned a verdict of accidental death. Inter Ocean. Deceased was a brother of Mrs. Harriet ABERNETHY, and an uncle of Mrs. G. M. DANIELS and Mrs. M. J. ABERNETHY. [Batavia Herald, 12 November 1896 - Submitted by K. Torp]

MELOY, WILLIAM THOMAS
William Thomas "Bill" Meloy, 89, passed away after a brief illness on December 1, 2012, in Vancouver, Washington. He was born on June 24, 1923 in Zanesville, Ohio. Resident of Tinley Park, Illinois, for 56 years, he had been visiting his son. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Aldona (nee Bardy or Bardauskas), dear friend Marion Tibbetts, parents James Robert and Hilda Perone Meloy, two brothers, Carl and Robert James, "Bob," and a sister, Katherine Leggee (William). He is survived by his devoted children Patricia Meloy-Junkroski (John) of Marengo, Illinois, and Michael (Debi Steffan) of Camas, Washington, his beautiful and talented granddaughters Lisa Andrewjeski (Paul) and Linda Wade (Ty), four delightful great-granddaughters Bailey, Layla, Ella and Emilie, all of Washington, and his three younger sisters, Juanita Darling, (John) of Indiana, Ann Fleischer (Warren) and Alice Jackson (Arthur), both of Florida, many nieces and nephews, and his decidedly pampered cat, Rocky.
In World War II, Bill served in the United States Marine Corps Pacific campaigns on Bougainville (July-Nov. 1943), Guam (July-Nov. 1944) and Iwo Jima (Feb.-March 1945) where he was present for the raising of the American flag on Mount Suribachi. While he rarely spoke of his time in service, he did tell a few stories of his time overseas. One involved sending a letter to his brother Bob who was then serving in the Army. The letter was returned undelivered and stamped INTRA-ISLAND MAIL indicating his brother and he were on the same island. They were able to meet there, halfway around the world from home and in the midst of the chaos of war.
Children were major beneficiaries of Bill's generosity and attention. He worked for many years as custodian for Grissom Junior High School. His greatest joy in life came from the children he knew. In particular, he befriended the special needs students at Grissom who loved him in return as "Mr. Bill." Their drawings, stories, and cards were saved by "Mr. Bill" and even adorned the walls of a room in his home. During his life, Bill enjoyed amateur astronomy and ground his own 10-inch telescope mirror at the Adler Planetarium, Chicago. In the summer and on crisp, fall weekends, his children remember waiting up until very late for dad who worked nights as a lithographer in Chicago. After a late supper, the three would make hot cocoa and haul blankets out to the picnic table on cool, clear nights to bundle up and look for meteors, watch the aurora borealis, or hunt for constellations until sleepiness or the chilly night air sent them in to bed. Fishing with his buddies as a young married man and coaching Little League when his children were young were other pastimes he enjoyed. A lover of music, for a time, Bill was member of an a cappella men's choir that benefitted the hearing challenged and deaf. He was a member of both the VFW and the American Legion. A memorial service with Marine Corps Honor Guard was held in the Willamette National Cemetery, Portland, Oregon, on Thursday, December 13.
