DEATHS AND MISHAPS AT MINER'S HOME
Fate has dropped a fell hand upon Thomas Kilroy, miner, and his
family, of Meyersdale, according to reports received here. Kilroy's
wife died. Then he followed his mother to her grave. When he returned
from the second funeral, he found his infant daughter, painfully,
perhaps fatally, burned. Kilroy himself was injured badly by a fall
down the stairs of his home. Lockjaw is feared.
Kilroy is about 40 years old. He was employed at the mines around Meyersdale and worked steadily until a short time ago. About 15 years ago, Kilroy was married. Seven children came to him and his wife, Mary. their ages range from 14 to 5 years. When October's chill winds killed the leaves, they wafted death into the Kilroy cottage. Mrs Kilroy sickened and died. The seven children were cared for by Mrs Mary Kilroy, the bereaved Mrs Mary Kilroy, the bereaved man's mother. Again death stalked into the stricken home. The grandmother lay on her bed, one night, never to rise. She was buried last week, not far from the new grave of her daughter-in-law.
From his mother's funeral, Kilroy went home to find his youngest girl severely burned on the body. As he stood in the cemetery, she had played near the cook stove. Her clothing caught fire. The other children had beaten out the flames in time to save their sister from death.
Kilroy was distracted. Work was lacking and he hunted for a place to earn bread for his children and himself. He came back, sick, a few nights ago, and two of the children helped him to bed. He arose in the night, wandered to the stairway, and fell down. Moaning, he was picked up by his children and assisted to bed. The he lapsed into unconsciousness. The children, thought, for the greater part of a day, their father was asleep. When evening came and he did not rise as usual, they became alarmed. Word was sent to neighbors, and inquiry revealed that Kilroy was hurt severely.
His jaws set a day later as if lockjaw had attacked him. A doctor was summoned. He opened Kilroy's mouth, allaying the first fear of tetanus. Kilroy's mind is affected, it is said. he has not been able to tell definitely how his plunge down the stairway occurred.
Neighbors are caring for Kilroy and his children. Food, fuel, clothing and bedding have been supplied. -Cumb News of 24th.
