SHIREY, George

    Johnstown Tribune, 02June1902, Contributed by Lynne Canterbury

Coroner Miller was notified yesterday of the death of George Shirey at the Memorial Hospital, which occurred at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. The Coroner investigated the matter and decided no inquest was necessary. Shirey was admitted to the Memorial Hospital several weeks ago, after jumping off the Stone Bridge. He was crossing, and, in getting out of the way of a train, he saw another bearing down on him, and so deliberately jumped off the bridge, sustaining fractures of his right thigh and right arm, an injury at the base of the brain being the most serious of his hurts. He failed to rally, although at times he seemed better, but the improvement was not permanent, and he died as stated. Shirey was thirty-seven years old and unmarried. Mrs. John Ribblett, of West Taylor Township, is a sister and is the only relative Shirey is known to have about here.
