|MET DEATH ON B. & O.|
Young Johnstown Railroader Instantly Killed Last Friday Afternoon at Massillon, O.
Irwin Barnett, brakeman on the passenger train running on the Somerset & Cambria Branch between this city and Rockwood, left here Saturday morning for Massillon, O., to bring home the remains of his brother, Harry Barnett, for burial. A telegram received by Mr. Barnett's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Adam Barnett, of No. 328 Bedford street, from the Superintendent of the Massillon Division of the B. & O., stated that their son had been instantly killed about 1 o'clock that afternoon while about his duties as a freight locomotive fireman.
Barnett was well known about the city, having worked on the local B. & O. as a brakeman for some years. He left here about six months ago to accept his latest position. The unfortunate young man was twenty-eight years old and is survived by his parents and the following sisters and brothers, all at home: Mrs. J. Patterson, Miss Elsie, Miss Myrtle, Irwin, William, and Louis. The deceased was a member of the local lodge of Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Engineers. The remains were buried in Grand-View Cemetery Monday afternoon.
