LOGAN - A BOY BEHEADED - Twelve-year-old
Johnnie LOGAN, son of Northern Central engineer John LOGAN of 420 Jefferson
street, jumped on an Erie freight train near the Southport coal pockets
Wednesday and started to ride towards the city. When he attempted to get
off below the Central junction he fell under the wheels and had his head
cut off, one arm broken and was otherwise mangled, his head being smashed
to a pulp. The train was stopped and the body was sent over to the Erie
depot where the body was placed in the oil room and the coroner notified.
An affecting scene occurred when the boy's father reached the oil room
and recognized his son's head.
Funeral of Johnnie LOGAN Who Was Killed by the Cars Wednesday - The
funeral of little Johnnie LOGAN who was killed by the cars last Wednesday,
was held from the family residence 420 Jefferson street Friday afternoon,
a number of friends and relatives attended and assisted in the solemn ceremonies
over the remains. The boy's untimely end brought a pang of sorrow to every
kindly heart and the scene at the house was so sad and pitiful, that few
who were present will ever forget it. The floral offerings were very beautiful
and consisted of a large floral pillow presented by Miss BRADY, and the
scholars of the sixth grade of No. 3 school, a design of roses from the
playmates of the deceased, floral basket, from Mrs. C. C. HARPER, Mrs.
J. P. SMITH and Mrs. John FINLAY, jr. A quartette sang sweetly several
selections and Rev. Dr. JENNINGS conducted the services. The interment
was in Fulton street cemetery, and the bearers of the casket were Masters
Ralph HARPER, Frank FINLAY, Curtis OLDHAM and Willie WARNOCK.

Obituary: The funeral of Peter McCaffery will take place at 10:00 am
at the residence 558 South Main Street . He will be buried at the Fulton
Hi Joyce, Here is the obituary for Peter McCaffrey (spelled many ways).
You don't have him listed on your site as being buried in that cemetery
(maybe the tombstone is missing). He had two wives. 1st Isabella Hall,
2nd Celestia Arnold. Peter was born in Ireland. He lived at one time
in Scotland and from Scotland came to the USA. He is not directly related
to me, but his sister-in-law is. Donna Judge
REES JOHN W.
REES and CARTER - Death of Mr.
and Mrs. John W. REES, An aged and Respected Couple Gone to Their Rest.
- Particularly sad are the deaths of these estimable old people coming
as they do so close together. Within a period of three days both husband
and wife have been called away. John W. REES was born in Philadelphia in
1810, and at his death was seventy-seven years eight months and seven days
old. He was the son of Thomas REES, a sea captain, and during his youth
made several voyages to the old country in company with his father. Early
in life he came to Elmira, where he met and married Miss Sarah CARTER,
who survived him only three days. The funeral services of Mr. REES were
observed Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, from the home of his son, William
H. REES, 227 Franklin street, and were conducted by the Rev. A. J. KENYON,
of the Centenary M. E. church. Mr. KENYON's text was: "I heard a voice
from heaven saying unto me, write: Blessed are the dead who die in the
Lord, from henceforth." The pastor's remarks were very appropriate, often
touching upon the upright, Christian life of the deceased man. A choir
composed of Messrs. LACOST and HOBLER and Misses Mary FORRESTER and Jennie
BURTOFF beautifully rendered "Asleep in Jesss," "Go Bury Thy Sorrow," and
"My Latest Sun is Sinking Fast." How little they, who saw the bereaved
widow as she was drawn in an easy chair up to the side of the casket, that
she might taka a last loving look at the face of him who had been her companion
through life, realized that the sun of her life was fast setting behind
the hills of eternity. How little they thought that ere the light of another
day her spirit would have winged its flight to join the one gone before.
Mrs. REES's death occurred Thursday morning at 4 o'clock, suddenly, yet
seemingly without pain. She was seventy-five years, three months and twenty-six
days old. Of their three children but the son survives them. One daughter,
Mrs. Emma C. ALLEN, died in Ohio in 1864, and the other, Mrs. H. E. JONES,
died in this city in 1885. Besides the son Mrs. REES leaves a brother and
sister, Alvah S. CARTER, of this city, and Mrs. Rhoda LUTES, of Loda, Ill.
Mrs. REES had lived in Elmira since 1824. Both she and her husband were
members of the Centenary church, being amoung the first to identify themselves
with that organization. The funeral of Mrs. REES occurred yesterday afternoon
at 3:30, interment being in the Southport cemetery. At the funeral sevices
the same choir rendered the same muic as that sung at the funeral of Mr.
REES, performed the same last rites for Mrs. REES. The remarks of Rev.
Mr. KENYON were beautiful and very touching.
