J.D. Walkinshaw

Jonathan Doty Walkinshaw, aged 91 years, a former canal boatman, veteran of the Civil War, former employee of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company and village postmaster, died at his home in Cokeville early Friday morning, following a long illness. He was born near that place and spent practically his entire life there.

He served as a Lieutenant in Company I, Eleventh Pennsylvania Reserves, during the Civil War and was postmaster at Cokeville for more than 25 years, retiring about 10 years ago.

Early in life he worked as a boatman on the old Pennsylvania canal and later entered the service of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. He was the first brakeman on the first passenger train to leave the Blairsville Station over the Conemaugh division tracks.

His wife, Mrs. Fannie Hotham Walkinshaw, died 30 years ago.

A daughter, Mrs. Maud E. Dixon of Cokeville; a brother and four sisters are living.

Funeral services were conducted on Sunday afternoon at his late residence by Reverend G.W. Ringer of the Cokeville M.E. Church and burial will follow in the Blairsville Cemetery.
