"John S. Brophy, aged 65 years, president of the Piedmont and George's Creek Coal Company, with operations at Westernport and Frostburg, died Monday morning {14 Dec 1931} at his home in Frostburg, following an illness of several days from a heart attack. Mr. Brophy was one of the most prominent coal operators in Maryland, and was recognized as an authority on coal mining. His practice of dividing his time between his office and the mines, gave him a practical knowledge of both the administration and working branches of the mining business. He was held in high esteem both by his employees and by his business associates for his fair dealings. Following employment in the Elk Garden mines as a young man, he took up mining engineering and at the completion of his studies became foreman and mining superintendent for the Union Mining Company at Frostburg. Subsequently, he engaged in extensive coal mining operations at various points in Allegany County, Maryland. The funeral services were held this morning at St. Michael's Church, Frostburg, with interment in the parish cemetery."

James P. Brown, 47 years old, former resident of Westernport, was instantly killed at 10
45 o'clock Sunday morning, when he was pinioned under falling timber in the Brock mine of the Continental Coal Company, in the Scott's Run field near Morgantown, W. Va. Brown, a foreman and expert timberman, went into the mine with three other men, to supervise the removal of timber in a section which had been closed. They were about three fourths of a mile from the shaft when the roof timbers fell. Brown's neck was broken and he was crushed about the chest. His companions, who were not injured, extricated the body. The mishap victim had been engaged in mining work about thirty years and was located in Frostburg and Westernport before he moved to Westover, a suburb of Morgantown, several years ago. Mr. Brown is survived by his widow, Mrs. Ethel Brown, a native of Frostburg, and by four daughters, Misses Mary, Julia, and Jean, at home, and Mrs. Edwin Frita, Washington, D.C.

"Last Rites Held for Joseph T. Brown Frostburg, July 3-The funeral of Joseph T. Brown, 38 years of age, an official of the Gleason Coal and Coke Company, son of Mr. and Mrs. Phillip Brown, this place, who died early Wednesday at Allegany Hospital, Cumberland, took place from St. Michael's Catholic Church, Friday morning. Rev. Joseph P. Nolan, pastor, celebrated requiem high mass and gave a touching eulogy. Father Nolan stated that when he came to St. Michael's church as an assistant priest 23 years ago, the first friend he made was Joseph Brown, then a young lad; and said Father Nolan it is a strange coincidence that when he returns as pastor, the first official act he was called upon to perform was to officiate at the funeral of the first friend he made when he first arrived here. Mr. Brown was very well known and his funeral was largely attended by friends and relatives from Frostburg and from other places. He was a member of the Holy Name Society and served as an usher at St. Michael's church and his untimely death is a matter of deep regret in the community. The pallbearers were John L. Casey, Frank Powers, Joseph McGraw, William Kreitzburg, John Ryan and Frank Wolfhope. Interment was in St. Michael's Cemetery."
