Allison Man Is Killed
Hit By Trolley Or Dies In Fall

Funeral services were being arranged today for Frank Wadsworth, 65, Allison, who died late yesterday after being found injured and unconscious under the Davidson Siding bridge near Brownsville, across which he had started out to work about 7 a. m.

Suffering severe chest injuries and shock, he was unconscious when found, but later mumbled something about a trolley. Since none of the cars showed any marks and he had not been seen by any of the operators, it was thought he might have fallen when trying to run across the bridge on hearing a car approaching.

It was so foggy, however, that he might have been struck without being seen by the motorman. The case was investigated by Coroner Lee R. Herrington.

Survivors included his widow, Mrs. Rebecca Wadsworth; seven children, Mrs. Margaret Mills and Mrs. Mabel Kikta of Republic; Mrs. Ruth Kelly of Brownsville; Mrs. Adah Simpson of Spears; William Wadsworth of Brownsville; John Wadsworth of Uniontown, and Lincoln Wadsworth at home; three brothers, William Wadsworth of Mt. Braddock and Samuel and Jack Wadsworth of Dunbar and a sister, Mrs. Essie Mankins of Dunbar.

The body has been removed to the Earl Podvia funeral home in Republic.
