    Cambria Freeman, 17July1903, Contributed by Patty Millich

In the space of four hours, from 4 until 11 on last Tuesday evening, four men in Johnstown met violent deaths, all being instantly killed. The first victim was a Hungarian laborer, George Kanazovitz, aged 22 years, who was crushed to death by a heavily loaded truck in the Franklin car hops. Findlay McDonald, a Canadian, 28 years of age, was the second victim. He was a railroader and was crushed under a freight car in the Conemaugh yards. Henry Brown, aged 22, a colored night porter at the Merchantsí hotel was the third victim. He broke his neck by a fall down the elevator shaft. A man supposed to be Henry C. Rippen was struck by a passenger train at the Pennsylvania railroad depot. His body was horribly mangled and identification is uncertain.
