Johnstown Tribune, Johnstown PA June 27, 1921

Daniel Rose, aged 51 years, died last night from injuries sustained in an auto accident at the Roundhouse yesterday.

Mr Rose, together with is twin sister, Mrs George Mishler, of 906 Bedford Street, and Moses Kaufman, had been on a visit to their cousin, Ephriam Thomas at Davidsville, and they were returning home when the accident occurred. At the turn of the road at the junction of the Somerset Pike and Valley Pike, the auto in which Mr Rose was riding collided with a machine owned by Mr Levy. Both machines were traveling towards Johnstown at the time.

When the machines struck, Mr Rose was thrown into the road and sustained fractures of both legs above the knee, as well as internal injuries. It was not believed that Mr Rose was seriously injured, and he was removed to the Misher home. He died at 8 o'clock. Mr Rose was the only person to sustain injuries although the Levy machine carried Mr Levy, his wife and two children.

Daniel Rose was a son of Mr and Mrs Samuel Rose, and he was born about a mile from Elton February 25, 1871. For a number of years he wheeled about in a wheel chair. He was known about town as an expert whittler.

Mr Rose is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. George Misher, of 906 Bedford Street; Mrs. John Horner, of Ogletown; Hiram Rose of near Elton. He is also survived by one half-brother, Charles Rose of near Stoyestown, and a half-sister, Mrs. Sam Hale of Dale Borough. The deceased had made his home with Mrs. George Mishler for the past 14 years. The funeral will take place from the Mishler home at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon. Interment will be in the Weaver cemetery.
Note: (Weaver cemetery is the oldest part of today's Richland Cemetery)
