Notes for Nathan Evans:

Note and Queries, William H. Egle, Annual Volume 1899

(p.144) Welsh Settlers: In Earl and Caernarvon Townships, Lancaster County.

"Nathan Evans was born in the year 1682 in Treve Eghlis, Montgomeryshire, Wales. He came to this country with the Welsh emigration before the year 1700 and settled with his countrymen in the Welsh tract at Radnor, where in the year 1709 he married Susanna, daughter of Willaim and Ann (Miles) Davies. William Davies was a merchant in Philadelphia. He owned vessels, and likely lived at Radnor, where he had a plantation. The following agreement (the original of which is in the possession of descendants of Nathan Evans} sets forth their occupations. "Memorandum:

It is agreed by and between Nathan Evans of Edgmont in the County of Chester, in the Province of Pennsylvania, Mill-right, of the one part, and William Davies, of the Township of Radnor, in the County and Province aforesaid, merchant of the other part, as followeth (viz't):

In witness whereof they have hereunto set their hands and seal, interchangeably. Dated the 25th day of October, Anno Dom. 1714.

Nathan Evans

Sealed And Delivered in the p'sence of us.

Hugh Hughes

Mirick Davies"

The agreement would lead us to believe that Nathan Evans had considerable means, if he was prepared in fourteen days after their arrival in America, to pay for the transportation of his kinsfolk, not limiting the number, and that he was very desirous that they should come to this country. It is not known that any did come over on his account under the agreement. He had a brother, Roger Evans in the Province and he mentions in his will two nephews in the Province of Maryland, likely sons of Roger.

The agreement is witnesses by Hugh Hughes, who marries Mary Davies, another daughter of Willaim Davies, and Mirick Davies, a son of William, who was coroner of Philadelphia in 1720 and 1728. The said Willaim Davies, came to America about 1685, purchased a lot in Philadelphia on Walnut Street from John Jones, 10-30-1685, and in the same year he purchased a plantation at Radnor. He was originally a Quaker, and his name frequently appears in the Radnor and Haverford meeting records. Afterward he became an ardent Episcopalian. The first Episcopal services in the vicinity were held in his house, then in a log cabin built upon his plantation, which burned down early in 1700, and which was replaced by the present St. David's Church, near St. David's Station, on Pennsylvania Railroad. His children were members of the church. Nathan Evan's name appears in the records. William Davies was a vestryman and he was prominent in the church as long as he lived. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1712 and 1714. He died in 1734, leaving among his assets a "pew in St. David's Church"

From Pennsylvania Archives Vol XIX, Second Series, we find. In 1715 Willaim Cloud obtained a warrant for 300 acres of land in Chester County which he assigned to his son, Joseph Cloud who in 1718 had 300 acres surveyed to him on a branch of the Conestoga Creek; and in First month 1720, paid ten pounds in part and since by deed "ye 1st May, 1725 conveyed all his right and title to Nathan Evans, of said county, millwright." This is the property that he finally settled upon and where he built his house, still standing and occupied and owned by a descendant [written 1899], in now Caernarvon township, Lancaster County. Again from same volume "Said Nathan Evans requests a grant of about 100 acres adjoining the east side of the above to erect a mill on.' He also requests a grant of a piece of land for a settlement for his brother Roger, on the southside of his tract, and from Surveyor Taylor's papers, in Historical Society of Philadelphia, we find that surveys were made January 1737, to Roger Evans for 150 acres on the North and South branches of the Brandywine, in Nantmeal Township, and to Nathan Evans, 150 acres on the North branch of the Brandywine in Nantmeal township, Chester County, warrant having been given to him 9-20-1718 for 100 acres "on which he intends to build a mill." James Steel gave orders to Isaac Taylor to lay out the land.

The above fixes the fact that Nathan Evan's brother Roger was in this country in 1718 and was living in 1737. He sold his farm in Edgmont township in 1724, and since he bought the Conestoga farm about the same time, he must have moved to the Conestoga Valley in this year. He built the house now owned and occupied by Isaac Evans, on a part of this plantation, which he called the little meadow. The following is taken from the records of the Bangor Church, Churchtown, Lancaster County:

"By the honorable William Penn, Esquire, original proprietor of the Province of Pennsylvania, his charter to all persons themselves from any part of Christendom into said Province. It is granted they shall enjoy the free license of the Christian religion under whatever denomination. Upon this, so engaging a plan of privileges, among others, several families of Welsh known by the name of Ancient Britons, did transplant themselves from Wales, in Old England, unto the Province aforesaid and settled themselves at first in the Township of Radnor, in the county of Chester, in the province aforesaid, where they erected a place of worship, where they had divine service, according to the doctrine and discipline of the Episcopal Church of England, of which Church they were zealous members, and had for their minister, the Rev. Robert Weyman, the society's missionary for the Propagating of the Gospel in Foreign parts.

After some years many of them finding their settlement too confined (from the vast number of incomers) they, Anno Domini 1730, removed some miles to the westward into a new county called Lancaster and settled in a township called Caernarvon from a shrine of the same name in Wales in Old England, and fixing here, they (in imitation of all good Christians) found that no place would be agreeable to them without the Public Worship of God, therefore unanimously and cordially consented and agreed according to their worldly circumstances to build a church of square logo, which they furnished and gave the name of Bangor from a diocese of that name in Old England. The principal members who built the church were as follow, viz:

 

Thomas Williams Evan Hughes

George Huttson Zaccheus Davies

Nathan Evans George Huttson

Edward Davies Edward Nicholas

Thomas Morgan Edward Davies

Rees Davies Hugh Davies

Philip Davies David Davies

Gabriel Davies Morgan Evans

Morgan John John Davies

John Bowen Charles Huttson

John Edwards Thomas Nicholas

Nicholas Huttson John Davies

Note-These Davies were relatives of Susanna Davies, wife of Nathan Evans. Gabriel and John were her brothers. Congressman Edward Davies Was a descendant of Gabriel. Nathan Evans moved to this region ahead of his friends from Radnor.

The first pastor was Rev. Griffith Hughes 1730-1733. Then in succession Rev. Roger Blackwell, 1733-1739; Richard Lock, 1739-1751; George Craig, 1751-1759; THOMAS BARTON, 1759-1774. (In the interval during the Revolutionary War, they had no minister), and Rev. Frederick Illig, 1782.

On the 17th day of November, A.D. 1751, the first record of the church was recorded; when Nathan Evans was chosen a vestryman and he continued each year at the head of the vestry until his death. At a meeting of the vestry on the 7th day of September, A.D. 1754, a subscription was taken up to raise money to build a new church. The largest subscription was given by Nathan Evans, one hundred pounds.

The warrant for the land upon which the church was built (and still stands) is dated 5-24-1738. Survey was made "to Gabriel Davies for a church thereon then intended to be erected and since erected and called Bangor Church, for the use of a congregation of Protestants of the established Church of England" Patent was issued to "Linford Lardner (who was a cousin of William Penn and Treasurer of the Province) and John Davies (the present church wardens,) and theirs heirs for the use aforesaid." 62 acres and 167 perches. Consideration, 9 pounds, 14 shillings and 8 pence. Quitrent 1/2 penny per acre. In 1759, Nathan Evans, Senior, pad "for the Glebe land, which lies around the church and cleared it out of the office by a patent for the use of the minister officiating in the church of Bangor, 29 pounds, 2 shillings. George Craig

From the first page of the church record: "Easter Monday, April 7, 1769. Mr. Nathan Evans Sem., paid into the hands of William Douglas, Treasurer to the Chruch of Bangor, the sum of 19 pounds, 2 shillings and 3 pence, being the last payment of a benefaction of one hundred pounds which he generously contributed towards building said church, and which the congregation acknowledges to have now received in full."

Nathan Evans died December 23, 1763, leaving a will, mentioned his wife, Susanna, son Nathan, John and James, and daughters, Ann, wife of Eleazor Evans, and Mary wife of Thomas Nicholas, grandsons Nathan, son of Nathan; John and David, sons of Ann; Nathan and William, sons of James, and nephews Richard and Jonathan in the Province of Maryland (these were likely sons of his brother Roger). After devising the farm on which he lived to his son James, he bequeathed "Twenty shillings, which it is my will shall be given to the minister of Bangor Church yearly and every year forever, which 20 shillings I charge and lay upon the meadow commonly known by the name Little Meadow."

One of his descendants now lives upon this farm and the amount has always been and is regularly paid to the church. He also bequeathed 100 pounds to buy three bells for the church, but money was used for other purposes. He also devised a farm in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, to his grandson Nathan, son of Nathan, subject to an annual payment of twenty shillings to be used toward the support of a school in said township.

A large slab of marble covers his grave in Bangor churchyard, upon which is inscribed:

 

"Waiting for the glorious resurrection of the faithful,

Here lies the body of Nathan Evans, the elder.

Born in Treve Englis, in the county of Montgomery,

in the principality of Wales.

A man, humble in affluence and prosperity.

In the duties of religion devout.

In friendship faithful,

In his dealings just,

To the poor he dispensed with a liberal hand.

To the church he was a generous and bountiful benefactor,

and to all mankind a loving friend.

Having attained the age of eighty-one years he calmly resigned

his soul unto the hands of the redeemer on the 23rd day of December,

A.D. 1763

The memory of the just shall be held in everlasting remembrance."

 

His descendants are widely distributed throughout the United States"{Egle, Wm. H. Notes and Queries}

Notes for Lot Evans:

"Grandfather Evans was a native of Berks County, Pennsylvania, but early in life removed to a place near West Chester, Chester County, and in 1824 took up a residence at Catawissa Furnace, Northumberland county. From here he removed in 1829 to Pottsville, and thence in 1832 to St. Clair, same County, where he died in 1858 at the age of seventy one years. During the early years of his life, he was engaged as a clerk; but upon his removal to Catawissa he erected a forge, a furnace and a grist mill, and these continued to occupy his attention while he remained there.

DEATH OF AN OLD CITIZEN OF ST. CLAIR

On Tuesday morning last, Baldwin Jackson Evans one of the oldest residents of St. Clair, died after a protracted illness. Mr. Evans was one of the most widely known and most highly respected citizens of our neighboring borough. He was born in 1819 at a small village called Romansville in Chester County and was the oldest child of a family of six. Two brothers survive him. About 50 years ago, the family removed to St. Clair, which was then but a wilderness, not more than half a dozen families having settled there. By his good habits and untiring zeal, he soon won the esteem of all he became acquainted with and until his demise was universally liked. For several years he held the position of outside foreman of the pine Forrest Colliery, which was then owned by George W. Snyder, and some years later was head clerk in Lucas and Dennings General Store at Glen Carbon. During the past ten years, however, he was not able to work much, owing to consumption having taken hold of his system. He leaves a grown up family of nine children as follows; Mrs. Joseph Dennings, St. Clair; Mrs. George Farne, Minersville; Mrs. C.W. Moister, Duke Center, McKean County and Alfred B., Latrobe, Westmoreland County; Thomas J., John R., C. Frank., A. Gracey and Clay H. all of St. Clair. His wife, who was formerly a Miss mary Reese, of St. Clair also survives him.

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.

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)

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.

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.

Clay W. Evans

Born: February 10, 1844

Pottsville, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania

(Page 43) (Image1519)

I first entered the military service of the United States by being enrolled by being enrolled at Saint Clair and mustered in at Pottsville August 7th 1862. My rank on entering service was that of Private and I was assigned to Company B 129th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers. I afterward served in Company G 48th Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteers Companies F and G 31st United States Company F. From the rank of Private I was promoted to that of Corporal afterward to that of Second Lieutenant and finally to that of First Lieutenant. I came near, however being promoted to the rank of Captain having been recommended for that position and been examined and had I remained in the service, would have received my commission in two weeks It was on the 25th of November 1864 that I was promoted to the rank of Second Lieutenant and assigned to a Company in the 31st Regiment of United States Colored Troops. And it was on the 4th of March 1865 that I was promoted to the rank of First Lieutenant. The date of my first discharge was Nov 13th 1863. This was at Harrisburg Pa. and was on account of expiration of term of service. I reenlisted Feb. 24th 1864and on Nov. 23d 1864 was again discharged at Fort Sedgwick Va. by Special Order of the War Dept. but this time it was in order to accept promotion. My final discharge was Nov. 7 1865 at Brownsville Texas in accordance with Order from War Dept dated Sept. 8th 1865. I reached home Dec. 7th 1865. I believe I was the last Volunteer from Saint Clair to reach home. The first time I was under fire was at the Second Battle of Bull Run. I was afterward engaged in the Battle of Antietam, Fredericksburg, Shepherdstown, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Poplar Grove Church, Hatcher's Run, Five Forks, Capture of Petersburg, served in Fort Hell also in a number of skirmishes, picket fights etc. I was twice wounded at Spottsylvania May 12th 1864. One wound was in the right thigh. The other in my left hand. I was laid up in a following hospitals- Carver, Washington D.C., West Buildings, Baltimore and Fillon, Wilmington Del.

The names of some of my comrade with whom I was especially intimate are Wm H. Davis, Constantine Hess, William Farne, George Weller, Theodore Hoch, George Brensinger, Lieut. H.C. Jackson, Lieut, G.G. Pollock, George Farne, Thos Reid, George Watkins, Wm P. Atkinson, Captain Cathcart, Captain J.R. Morris and Colonel James

Clay W. Evans

 

What I consider to be one of the most important events connected with my experience in the war was the explosion of a shell at Fredericksburg which killed two members of my company, wounded four others and raised me from the ground.

Another event which gave me occasion to long remember was the fact of being twice wounded at Spottsylvania in arm and thigh.

Another incident which I shall long remember was my narrow escape from being captured by the rebels at Poplar Grove Church.

While my memory is being refreshed in calling up interesting early incidents associated with the early part of the war I can hardly fail to bring to mind that fact that in August 1861 I ran away from home and went to Harrisburg enlisted in the Military Service of the United States and was assigned to Company F Seventh Regiment Pennsylvania Cavalry. This service, however, was not for a long continuous period for at the end of forth eight hours my mother appeared on the scene and all of my highly exalted anticipations of war were dashed to the ground as she marched me home. It, however, was not always thus. The next time I enlisted I took the important precaution of gaining my mother's consent.

I served in the Fifth, Ninth, Twenty-Fourth and Twenty-Fifth corps in Maryland, Virginia and Texas in the Army of the Potomac, James and Rio Grande.

I was present at the Surrender of General Robert E. Lee at Appomattox Court House April 9th 1865 and served on the Rio Grande Texas from the mouth up to Eagle Pass. I engaged in a two weeks campaign or scout after a roving band of Indians near Roma Texas.

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.

Barbara S. Hillman, 83, editor of area weeklies (By Dominic Sama, INQUIRER STAFF WRITER)

 

Barbara Steinruck Hillman, 83, an editor of suburban weeklies and later a college publications director, died of a blood infection Tuesday at Bishop Nursing Home in Media. She lived in Exton and formerly in Berwyn. Mrs. Hillman began her career in 1941 after earning a bachelor's degree in English from Temple University. She worked as a copy writer for the former John Wanamaker department stores and later moved into sales promotion for Sears Roebuck & Co. She left Sears after a brief stint and, starting in 1943, taught two years in a one-room schoolhouse in Glenmoore. She often took her infant son, Gene, and the family's two collies to the school, which was heated by a Franklin stove. "On cold winter days," her son said, "she positioned me between the two collies next to the stove, and there we dozed while she taught."

In the late 1940s, Mrs. Hillman was appointed associate editor of the former Downingtown Archive weekly. In 1951, she and her husband, Elston, purchased the Upper Main Line News, a weekly based in Paoli. Mrs. Hillman was a reporter and editor, her husband publisher and photographer. Both also delivered the newspapers. In 1962, they sold the weekly, and Mrs. Hillman became director of development and public relations for Moore College of Art. She moved to Swarthmore College in 1975 to edit publications. She retired in 1977 to care for her ailing husband, who died in 1983. They had been married more than 40 years. In addition to her son, she is survived by a sister and a grandson.

Burial will be private.
