WYAR, John

    Johnstown Tribune, 16December1908, Contributed by Janet Gray

To secure employment last evening about 7:30 o'clock at the Caddy Coal Mine on Bedford Street and to be brought out dead half an hour later was the fate of John Wyar of Kennedy Avenue. Mr. Wyar had entered the mine with the intention of finding a place in which to start work in the morning and had just stepped into a room when a large boulder weighing several tons fell crushing him to the ground. His screams were heard by several young men in the mine who hurried for assistance.

The deceased was aged fifty-six years, four months and fifteen days and survived by the following children: John, Frank, Carl, Joseph, Emma, Anna, Cecelia and Florence. He was a lifelong member of St. Joseph's German Catholic Church. The funeral will probably take place at 9 o'clock Friday morning with interment in Lower Yoder Cemetery.
