Harry Williams

The East Liverpool Tribune


Expires in the C. & P. Station While Awaiting a Train For East Liverpool

Harry Williams, aged 23 years, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Williams of No. 209 West Fifth street fell dead from a seat in the Cleveland and Pittsburg station at Steubenville Sunday morning (Sept. 2, 1906). He is believed to have been awaiting a train to come home.

A coroner's inquest resulted in a verdict of heart failure. A patrolman saw Williams fall from the seat, but before the officer reached him, he had struck the floor and the spark of life had fled.

Chief of Police Edward Zimerman of Steubenville telephoned to Chief of Police John W. Wyman, and Patrolman Henry Aufderheide was detailed to notify the family. Mr. Williams was asked to come to the office of Mayor W. V. Blake, and whole on the way he was told of the death of his son.

The father went to Steubenville at 10 o'clock, and returned to East Liverpool with the body of his son at 6 o'clock Sunday night. The funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon from St. Stephsn<sic> Episcopal church with which congregation Mr. Williams was identified.

Mr. Williams was a mould maker. He had been in Steubenville three weeks. He intended to take a position at the Steubenville pottery. He was born in Tunstall, England and came to East Liverpool at the age of seven.
