Baby is Found Dead in Bed by Sick Mother

Sad Bereavement for Mr. and Mrs. Samuel J. Lee in Sudden Death of Infant Son.

Shock of sudden death of Francis Joseph, 18-months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel J. Lee, of Moffit avenue, makes the bereavement more sad for the parents as Mrs. Lee returned home yesterday from the Kane Summit hospital, where she was a patient for several weeks. The baby was found dead by an older sister after parents had become apprehensive because of the child sleeping longer than usual. When the girl reported the child to be cold, investigation was made and the child found dead. Dr. S. G. Beatty pronounced death due to convulsions.

In the afternoon after the mother's arrival home, a ten-year-old daughter put the baby to bed after giving a cookie to the child. The baby was restless and crying so the little girl rocked her little brother to sleep and tucked him into bed.

Two hours later the baby had not roused from sleep and investigation showed it was cold in death. Mrs. Lee is prostrated with grief.

John H. Flaherty Meets Death In Crash Of Car And Convoy On Wednesday

Chest Crushed By Force Of Contact; Funeral To Be Held On Saturday.

John H. Flaherty, 131 North Thirteenth Street, was believed to have been almost instantly killed when his automobile struck the rear of an automobile convoy trailer on Main Street early Wednesday evening.

Injuries which resulted in his death included a crushed chest, and a punctured lung, bringing about an internal hemmorhage, according to Dr. William M. Smith, coroner, who investigated.

Fred Murphy, of Buffalo, driver of the convoy, which was loaded with new automobiles, in a report to police, stated that he had stopped his truck at the curb to inspect his load before coming into the business section.

After he stopped, he said, he felt a jolt, and when he went to the rear of his truck, found Mr. Flaherty slumped back in the seat of his car, which had been badly damaged in contact with the rear of the trailer.

He shook the driver several times in an effort to arouse him, Mr. Murphy said, before going to a nearby house to call an ambulance and the police.

Meanwhile, a passing motorist had removed Mr. Flaherty from his wrecked car and driven to Higgins Memorial Hospital, but Mr. Flaherty was dead upon arrival there.

Red flares were placed on the street about the wreck by Mr. Murphy until the police had completed their investigation.

Mr. Flaherty, a boiler inspector for the State of New York, was returning home from an inspection trip at the time of the mishap.

The dead man a member of St. Mary of the Angels Church and Olean Lodge, No. 491, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, is survived by his wife, Mrs. Agnes Flaherty; three sons, John, Edward, and Walter, of Olean; four sisters, Mrs. Harry Clark, Miss Bernice Flaherty and Miss Irene Flaherty, of Detroit, Mich.; and Mrs. Samuel Lee, of Jamestown; and two brothers, Thomas Flaherty, of Bradford, and Harry Flaherty, of Vineland, N.J.

The body was removed to Curry's Funeral Home and was removed to the late home, 131 North Thirteenth Street, this afternoon. Funeral services will be held at the home Saturday morning at eight-fifteen o'clock, and at St. Mary of the Angels Church at nine o'clock. Burial will be in St. Bonaventure Cemetery.
