YEAGLEY, Theodore

    Cambria Freeman, 28July1893, Contributed by Lisa Baker

An accident occurred in the Gallitzin tunnel about 7:45 o'clock on Monday morning, the victim being Theodore Yeagley, a track hand. He had been at work with the division men when a west bound train came along. All of the men had gotten into what is known as a manhole, out of the way of the train. Yeagley had left his lamp in the middle of the track and had started back to get it when he was run down. The pilot of the engine struck him on the head and knocked him along the side of the tunnel. When he was discovered by his friends the only injury to his person was about his head. The deceased man was aged about 40 years, and had been in the employ of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company for about fifteen years. He leaves a wife and two children, one boy and one girl, to mourn him, all of whom reside at Gallitzin
