Obituary:
SEWARD SOLDIER WAS KILLED BY AN EXPLODING SHELL
Landed in Kitchen Set Up in Argonne Forest and Orderly Lowry Fry Lost Life
The manner in which Lowry Fry, of Seward, Westmoreland County, was killed in the Argonne forest, France, is related in the following letter received recently by Mrs. Bertha Fry, his mother, from Capt. William Weaver, of Battery E., 107th Field Artillery:
My dear Mrs. Fry, I have just recently returned from the hospital, where I have been for the past several weeks recovering from wounds. I have found on my return to the battery that during my absence none of the officers had written you regarding the death of your son. This I regret very much, but it is probably due to the fact we have been on the go and in several hard battles during the past few weeks. I wish to express to you my sincere sympathy for the loss of your son. Personally he was perhaps dearer to me than any other man in the battery as he had been my orderly since our entry into the service. I wish to state that as a soldier he has been one of the best of the battery; always ready and willing to go or do any duty he was called upon; in fact it was always his desire to accompany me whereever I went and I always felt that I had a friend indeed in your son. On behalf of his comrades, the members of this battery, I wish to state that we shall always hold dear the memory of your son who made the supreme sacrifice that libery should not perish. Your son was killed in the Argonne Forest near the twon of Mont Blainville. Your son and a number of other men were sitting near our kitchen. There was a very heavy shelling going on and unfortunately a large shell landed in the vicinity of our kitchen, instantly killing your son and wounding several other men. On the next day a grave was dug near the edge of a small woods and your son wass tenderly laid awy in the presence of the entire battery. A wooden cross was made with his name and organization printed on it. If there is any other information you desire regarding your son, kindly let me know and I will be only too glad to send it to you. Again expressing my sincere sympathy, I beg to remain,
Yours very truly,
WILLIAM WEAVER.
