Obituary in Pottsville Republican dated October 1893:

Death of Joseph Denning

   Another prominent citizen of St. Clair is gone.  Death came and took away Joseph Denning, a well known and highly respected citizen of that place, in the presence of a number of the members of his family.  The deceased was born in England eighty-five years ago.  When he arrived at manhood's state he left Merrie England and located in Pottsville, where he followed the pursuit of blacksmithing; subsequently he removed to Bradford county, where he followed butchering.  But a few years after he returned to this county and located at Wadesville where he opened a little colliery in the primitive days of coal mining.  He also carried on a store and farming.  In 1844 he removed to St. Clair, where he opened up a store in connection with a meat market, which he managed successfully for many years, being compelled to retire to private life by reason of his advanced years.  He has always commanded the confidence and respect of his many friends and neighbors, who join with the family in sorrowing for the dead patriarch.

   The following children survive him: Joseph H., Manayunk, formerly of New Castle; Mrs. Margaret Cooley {sic:Covely}; William, George, John, Hannah & Alfred, all of St. Clair.

Obituary from Pottsville Republican dated August 8, 1910:

J. H. DENNING OF ST. CLAIR DEAD

   Seldom has the death of a citizen called forth such universal expressions of regret as that awakened in St. Clair yesterday when the announcement of the passing away of Postmaster J. H. Denning was made. Although his mature years and enfeebled condition has prepared the public for the end, many of the homes felt as though a personal loss had been sustained.  If death ever had any recompense, the countless words of regret and sympathy must have gone far to soften the blow the bereaved family received.

   J. H. Denning was a man so unique in character that few towns have been fortunate enough to possess his duplicate.  His disposition was his richest asset for it carried him happy and contented through trials that would have broken men of ordinary calibre.  Called upon to endure far more suffering than comes to the average human being, he accepted blow after blow with the same unflinching fortitude, , and each time came up with courage undaunted.  From the time he was a small boy, until the time of his death., Joe Denning shared his dollars with his fellow men, and when the dollars were few, he denied himself in order that his people and friends might not suffer.  In character he was as clean and open as his heart was in generosity.  It is said that an oath or a doubtful word never passed his lips.  He was an attentive member of the First M. E. Church and gave liberally to the support of all religious organizations in the town.  Of him, more than any other resident of St. Clair, could it be said today that there is not one person to speak an unkind word of his memory.

   Mr. Denning was born in Wade almost three-quarters of a century ago, and came to St. Clair when a boy.  At an early age Mr. Denning devoted his time to mining and for a long time conducted a colliery just north of St. Clair.  Here he passed through many vicissitudes.  He gave away as much coal as sold, and payment for about half the balance is still awaiting the collection of his executors.  Time after time his colliery failed for various reasons, but each time he began anew and finally worked it to exhaustion.

   He was one of the first volunteers to leave St. Clair at the outbreak of the Civil War, enlisting with the three months men.  At the expiration of his term he re-enlisted and served with distinction in the 7th Penna. Cavalry where he won a commission.  Three years ago he was appointed Postmaster of St. Clair, his selection being the means of pacifying bitter political strife in his town.  Although broken in health he devoted most of his days to the conduct of the office, and spent almost his last hours in disposing of the business of the department.

   During recent years, death has invaded his home time after time.  A large family of children and grandchildren found shelter under his roof. After the death of his wife, a grandson was killed on the railroad, and only a few weeks ago, his granddaughter, Sue Farne Thomas died very suddenly.  Of the surviving relatives there remain four sons and daughters: Will, Harry and Frank of St. Clair, Charley of Philada., Mrs. Carrie Steinruch, Philada., Mrs. Geo. Beck, Tamaqua and Mrs. J. Reese at home.

 

POSTMASTER J. H. DENNING LAID TO REST

    One of the largest funerals held in St. Clair in recent years took place this afternoon at 2 o'clock when the last sad rites were performed over the remains of Postmaster Jos. H. Denning at the family residence on N. Second St. by the Rev. C. M. Haddaway, former pastor of the First M. E. Church, St. Clair, but now located in Phila., assisted by the local pastor, Rev. Wm. Aspel.  Upon conclusion of the services the cortege proceeded to the I.O.O.F. cemetery, St. Clair, where interment was made, the Rev. Haddaway officiating.  The pallbearers were William and Ed Boone, Jas. Thomas, Wm. Warren, Simon Beck, J. W. Reese.  Undertaker Heiken of St. Clair had charge.

REGIMENTAL HISTORY

The 7th Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry, 80th in line, reported at Louisville on December 25th 1861, to Brigadier General Don Buell, who succeeded Sherman in the command of the Department of the Ohio. The 7th Pennsylvania Cavalry arrived at Nashville on March 18, 1862.

 

On April 1st the 1st battalion marched to Columbia. The 3rd battalion went to Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The 2nd battalion and headquarters remained at Nashville. During the summer of 1862 the three battalions operated from the various positions until September of that year. Company "F", at Lynville, Tennessee, has the honor of being the first to meet the enemy on May 2nd,1862. On May 5th, the second and third battalions, commanded by General George C. Wynkoop, were concentrated on the Lebanon pike for the purpose of intercepting Morgan's march to Kentucky. Morgan was at Lebanon. Wilson was in Tennessee. At break of day Wynkoop's battery charged upon the surprised Morgan at Lebanon. Three distinct charges were made and Morgan was finally routed. He left the field having had half his command captured and a large number killed or wounded. In that battle the regiment was baptized in fire and from that time forth its work was most brilliant.

Numerous skirmishes were participated in during the summer, viz: Lamb's Ferry, Sweeden's Cove, Chattanooga, Murfreesboro, Galatin and a number of others. In September of 1862 the first battalion moved with General George H. Thomas to Kentucky, and was in the battle of Perrysville on October 8th 1862. The second and third battalions remained in Nashville, and on October 8th won the decisive action at LaVergne, Tennessee.

 

In October, General Beull was relieved of the command of the army of the Ohio. General W.S. Rosecrans was assigned the position and the Army of the Cumberland was formed, being concentrated at Nashville in December of 1862. A Cavalry Corps was also organized, with General D.S. Stanley commanding. The 7th Pennsylvania Cavalry was assigned to the 1st Brigade, 2nd division of the Army of the Cumberland. It participated in the battles of Stones River on December 31st, 1862: Rover, January 31st, 1863: Unionville March 4th: Franklin, Thompson's Station, Aulton, Liberty, McMinnville and several others.

 

On June 25th the army moved to Murfreesboro. The First Brigade of the second division of cavalry corps, operated on the right of the army. They charged the entrenchments at Guy's Gap, and took 390 prisoners, killing and wounding a large number. The 7th Pennsylvania Cavalry charged through Shelbyville, Tennessee, and captured Wiggin's Confederate battery, drove Wheeler's command into and across the Duck River, with the result that many of the latter were drowned.

One hundred men, commanded by Captain Heber Thompson, have the credit of opening the battle of Chickamauga and Pennsylvania had the first man, John Ward of the 7th Pennsylvania Cavalry, killed.

In January, 1864 the regiment was sent to Pennsylvania on a veteran furlough, after 538 men of the regiment had reenlisted as veterans. It returned to Nashville in March, and during the month previous, 1200 men enlisted.

The regiment moved to join Sherman in Georgia on April 30th, 1864 and took part in battles as follows: Dallas, Big Shanty, Noonday Creek, McAffee's Crossroads, Kennesaw Mountain, Lost Mountain, Flat Rock, Covington, Lovejoy Station, Rome, with a 14 day entrenchment before Atlanta.

 

At the end of the Atlanta Campaign, the Cavalry Corps, Military Division of the Mississippi was organized under the command of General James H. Wilson in the spring of 1865. Then followed the Wilson Raid through Alabama, capture of Selma, and the pursuit and capture of Jefferson Davis. The Regiment was mustered out on August 23, 1865, at Macon, Georgia. We had marched 20,000 miles.

 

Lost during service was nine officers and ninety three men killed and Mortally wounded and five officers and one hundred eighty five men by disease. Total 292.

 In 1997, Rob Frederick and Larry Fryer, started a descendants organization. To date we have over 190 members. A newsletter is released with information relating to the 7th. For more information on this organization contact Rob Frederick or Larry Fryer below.

Comrade Joseph H. Denning

(Page 73) (Image1549)

He was born on the thirtieth day of July, A.D. 1839 in Wadesville, County of Schuylkill, State of Pennsylvania.

        I first entered the Military Service of the United States at Saint Clair, PA. April 24, 1861. I was mustered in as Private and served in Company H of the Ninth Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, a three month Regiment.

        I was first discharged at Harrisburg, PA. July 27, 1861 by reason of expiration of time of service. I again enlisted, however, and was assigned to company F of the Seventh Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers Cavalry which was the Eightieth Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers. This Regiment was assigned to the First Brigade, Second Cavalry Division, Army of the Cumberland.

        During my period of service I was promoted successively to positions of Sergeant Major, Orderly Sergeant, Second Lieutenant and finally at time of discharge I occupied the position of First Lieutenant. The time of this discharge was December 5th 1864 ad was for the reason of expiration of term of service.

        The first battle in which I was engaged was that of Falling Waters July 24, 1861. Others followed namely [Crab] Orchard, Harrodsburgh, Pulaskie, Lebanon, Carthage, Wilson's Creek, Franklin, LaVerne, Stone River, Murfreesboro, Rover, Springs Mill, Rutherford's Creek, Snow Hill, McMinnville, Rome, Ga., Leed's Cross Roads, Chattanooga and Chickamauga.

        In addition to the promotions mentioned on Page 73 it should be added that comrade Denning was promoted to the rank of Captain. He would have become Lieutenant Colonel of the Regiment, the Colonel having come all the way to St. Clair for winning his consent but unfair treatment prompted his refusal and so he did not return.

        We append a revised list of the battles of some, not all, of the battles in which Comrade Denning was engaged. To enumerate them all would be a long list indeed.

        He was in the engagement of Falling Waters, July 2d 1861. Pulaski Tennessee May 1, 1862, Skirmish with Morgan's Cavalry May 4th, 1862, Attack at Lebanon and pursuit to Carthage May 5th 1862, Pikesville August 4th, Sparta August 5th, Calf Killer River August 9th, Gallatin August 21st.

Notes for Margaret Ann Evans:

Obituary, from the papers of Margaret L. Steinruck Stahl

As a great surprise came the report on Thursday morning last of the death of Margaret, the wife of Col. Joseph H. Denning.  To speak of this lady's character seems superfluous for she was so well known to all the people. A dutiful, patient, diligent, earnest woman, devoted most loyally to all her family, bearing the burdens of each member as though they were her own. For some time past her nervous system has caused her some trouble, but an attack of pneumonia was the immediate cause of her death. A large circle of friends will feel her loss almost as deeply as her immediate family.  Her husband has the heartfelt sympathy of everybody in his great bereavement. The funeral will take place this afternoon at two o'clock, interment to be made in the Odd Fellows' cemetery.

She was a woman whose disposition was such that she always made friends and retained them, and her death has cast a gloom over a large circle of acquaintances. The deceased was born in the southern part of the State near Chambersburg, but has resided in St. Clair for the last thirty years.

Notes for Hannah Jane "Annie" Denning:

Fell Dead in Home of Friend, published January 1914

     Remarking to her friend who was sitting in the room with her, that it was snowing and raining outside, Miss Anna Dennings, aged 15 years, of St. Clair, collapsed in her chair and fell to the floor unconscious. Medical aid was secured but the young lady was beyond human assistance.

     Miss Dennings, who was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Will Dennings, resided on Thwing Street. She had been ailing for some time with her heart, but seemed to be responding to treatment. Friday afternoon she announced her intention of going up to see her friend, Miss Jennie Carl, with whom she had been an almost inseparable chum, and arrangements were made to take her up to the Carl homestead on Patterson St.

     She had been at Carl's almost three hours when the attack seized her and appeared to be more cheerful than she had been for some time past. Miss Carl had been talking to the girl and she almost collapsed when the attack seized the girl. A sad part of the affair is the fact that the father has been a patient at one of the Philadelphia hospitals for the past several weeks.

     Besides her parents the girl is survived by a sister Maggie, at home, and Mrs. Amos Kelly, of Philadelphia.

     Miss Dennings was an extremely popular girl and her sad death was a blow to the greater portion of the town.

Notes for Charles J. Farne:

The Suicide of Chas. J. Farne!

From our regular correspondent

     Charles J. Farne, of St. Clair, committed suicide about ten o'clock last evening by shooting himself through the head. He was 47 years of age and and is survived by a wife and large family.

     The incidents surrounding Mr. Farne's death are of a highly tragic nature. During the day he transacted business in Pottsville where he met a number of friends and conversed pleasantly with them. Towards evening he boarded an electric car for home, arriving at his residence on North Second Street about dusk. There was no peculiarity about his manner and no reason for suspecting that he contemplated such a terrible act. A revolver was noticed in his pocket but this called for the only ordinary comment. Mr. Farne was considered too wise and far seeing to take his life.

     Late in the evening he retired to his office. About ten o'clock a pistol shot report was heard by people upon the street. When the door of the room was opened Mr. Farne was found lying upon the floor dying, with a bloody gash in his head. Medical aid was called but the injury was vital and death resulted in a few minutes.

     No man was more widely known than Charkes J. Farne. He was for many years identified with the N. G. P. and served as an officer of company K. For three years he served as a member of the town council retiring this spring. He was defeated last year and again last week for Justice of the Peace. It is feared that these reverses preyed upon his mind. Mr. Farne was a man of bright intelligence and keen wit. Under favorable conditions he would have stood as one of the leading men of the county. His political friends well recall the nominating address made before the Republican Legislative convention one year ago, when he made the most brilliant speech ever heard on a similar occasion.

     Squire Farne is survived by a wife and eight children, all of whom are highly respected in St. Clair, and will have the sympathy of the entire county in the dire affliction.

Notes for Franklin Rutter Denning:

OBITUARY FROM POTTSVILLE REPUBLICAN dated Feb 2 1914

 

TWO KILLED AT ST. CLAIR IN DYNAMITE EXPLOSION

   Frank Denning and an unidentified Italian, both of St. Clair, were killed Monday morning at the Herbine strippings at that place when a charge of dynamite which was being tamped ready for firing exploded. Dennings and his helper had been working all morning and Mr. Dennings who was the powder man, was loading the holes.  The charge had been placed in the hole and the Italian was tamping the same when it suddenly went off without warning.  Both Dennings and the helper were instantly killed.

   Mr. Dennings was forty years of age and a son of the late Jos. H. Dennings for many years a coal operator at St. Clair.  He was married to Miss Bella Cliff of Port Carbon, and a sad feature of the affair is the fact that this is the sixth accidental death in the Cliff family in a short time.  Two uncles and three brother-in-laws met their deaths by accident recently.

   To survive, Mr. Dennings leaves besides his wife, two sons and one daughter.  Two brothers, Harry and Will of St. Clair, and a sister Mrs. George Beck of Phila. also survive.  The helper had not been identified up to a late hour this afternoon.  Dr R. F. Weaver was called to attend the men and found that Mr. Dennings was crushed by the blast about the chest.  The helper's entire body was shattered.

{Next days paper notes} The funeral of Mr. Denning will be held on Thursday from his home on Millins Hill.
