Sherback, Joseph

Submitters Name: Donald Buncie

Obit: Believed to have been hurled to the floor after his clothing caught in a five foot flywheel at the McFeely Brick plant shortly after 6 o'clock last evening, Joseph Sherback, aged 23 years, an employee at the plant, was instantly killed. No one witnessed the accident and at first doubt existed just how it occurred. The flywheel is a part of the machinery which operates a stone crusher. This machinery is enclosed by a fence and employees had been given strict orders not to enter the enclosure to work while it is in motion. The machinery had been oiled prior to being started and officials at the plant say they know of no reason why Mr. Sherback should have wished to enter. An oil can was found sitting on the floor within the enclosure, after the body was found, and it is possible that Mr. Sherback might have gone in to retrieve it when his clothing was caught by the flywheel, sweeping him from his feet and dashing him to the floor. His body was found lying in one corner of the fenced-in portion, several feet from the flywheel. His scull was shattered by the force with which he hit, and both legs and both arms were fractured in several places. Following the accident erroneous reports gained circulation that Mr. Sherback had fallen into the stone crusher itself. This is not true, as the opening through which the stone is poured to be crushed is outside the fence. Furthermore, two men were stationed at this opening, and neither one of them knew of the accident until after it had occurred. Mr. Sherback has been employed at the McFeely plant for the past five or six years. He was unmarried and made his home with his parents, who live at the corner of Washington and Harding streets. He is survived by his parents and the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. Julia Petroskey, and Mrs. Anna Noel, both of Latrobe, and Margaret, Mary, Helen, Veronica, George, Mike and William all at home. Funeral services are to be held at 9 o'clock Tuesday morning at St. John's Church, with interment yo be made at St. Mary's cemetery. (Obit: 10/14/1933)

A strange Coincidence In Death Of A Young Girl - Adams Library Micro Film Records

Derry, Pa. May 8, 1913. The Skill of the staff of physicians at the Mercy Hospital, Pittsburgh, proved unavailing to save the life of Miss Mary Regina Short, of Gray Station, and she passed into the great beyond at noon yesterday. The girl who was aged 16 years and 4 months was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs Albert Short, residents of the vicinity of Gray Station. She was well known in Derry, having visited quite frequently with her sister, Mrs Charles Cullen. Some time ago her removal to the Mercy Hospital was decided upon internal trouble having developed. Three weeks ago yesterday she was operated upon and two tumors, supposedly of cancerous origin were removed. Other tumors were located which it was found impossible to remove, however. the girl gradually grew worse, until the end came at noon yesterday. One of thirteen children, she is the second of the family circle to be taken by death. An unusual fact is that the other death was that of a sister, who died at the age of sixteen years, and just sixteen years ago when the girl whose death occurred yesterday, was only a day or so old. the parents and the following brothers and sisters are left to mourn the loss of a bright and vivacious sister: Joseph S. Short, of New York City; James A. Short of New York City; Paul Short of Pittsburgh; Leonard, Leroy and Lawrence all at home; Mrs. Charles Cullen, of Derry; Mrs. H. B.

St. Clair, Maj. Gen. Arthur

Republican Compiler (Gettysburg, Pennsylvania) July 13, 1825

Correction

We have read in a late southern Paper, an American tale by J. G. B. This tale is well told. The writer gives a glowing picture of the character and public service of the Exile and of the ingratitude and poverty he endured in "Realms his valor won," the justice of which on discovering him to be Maj. Gen. Arthur St. Clair, the reader cannot but assent to. Stating that the General died in a lonely cabin on a certain winter night, it is to correct this error that we have noticed the tale. Gen. St. Clair died at the house of his daughter, Mrs. Robb on Chesnut Ridge, on the 31st of August 1818. As soon as the news reached Greensburg, the citizens of that place convened in town meeting and resolved to pay the last tribute of respect in their power to this worthy patriot. Having obtained the consent of his family to bury him in Greensburg, a committee of eight gentlemen were appointed to make the necessary arrangements for and superintend the same and on Tuesday the 1st of September, his remains were accordingly interred there with Masonic and Military honors and every other respect in the power of the citizens of Greensburg and its vicinity to bestow.
