The News-Journal, Thursday, April 3, 1919
Early Saturday morning, a telegram to his mother, Mrs. D. P. Sanders of near Salem, told of the horrible death of her son, Harry A. Sanders, at Chatham, Ill. Mr. Sanders, with his family and father, had gone to Illinois only a few months ago, and were employed with a coal mining company at the mines. Mr. Sanders was doing his regular duties early Saturday morning about one o'clock, as he worked on the night shift, when an explosion which is believed to be caused by dust, killed him, his companion and badly wrecked the interior of the mine. Mr. Sanders was a native of Taylor County, a son of D. P. and Mrs. Sanders, and was married to a Miss Wade. He united with the Salem Baptist Church and during his lifetime had prepared himself for the ministry and has held several successful meetings in this and adjoining counties. Besides his beloved wife, one daughter and two sons, he is survived by his parents, several brothers and sisters. His remains arrived here Tuesday at noon and were taken to the home of his parents at Salem. On yesterday afternoon at two o'clock his funeral was held at the Salem Baptist Church and the interment followed in the cemetery nearby. Not only does his family mourn the loss but the community at large deplores the untimely death of this young man. The
bereaved share the sincere sympathy of all in their deep sorrow.
