Earnest Pearce was killed in a tragic accident, along with Henry Brundage of Rock Hill, when they were changing a flat tire near Monticello. They were hit by a speeding driver and died instantly. The two men were returning from a dance in Sackett Lake where they had provided entertainment, Mr. Pearce being a banjoist and Mr. Brundage one of the last of Sullivan County's old-time fiddlers.

Mr. Pearce was born in Brooklyn, thirty-three years ago, but for the last ten years had lived in Middletown, where he was employed by the Atlas Fur company. He went to Rock Hill last September, and had been employed by Mr. Brundage since that time.

His relatives include the widow; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Pearce of Katrina Falls; three brothers, Walter, Frank and Donald of Katrina Falls and New York, and two sisters, Mrs. Winifred Foss of Rock Hill and Mrs. Frank [Evelyn] Kistner of Middletown.

Services for Mr. Pearce will be held at two p.m. Tuesday at the late home. Interment will be in Rock Hill Cemetery.
