Yellowstone Monitor, Glendive, MT, 22 Feb 1912

Like a thunderbolt out of the clear sky came the news to his many friends Tuesday that Charles O'Connell, the popular passenger conductor, had come to his death by his own hands. About 12:30 a.m., Mrs. O'Connell heard a shot, and rushing to the part of the house where he was, found him with a bullet hole in his head. No cause except ill health can be assigned for the deed. His family relations and otherwise were always most pleasant. Mr. O'Connell had a passenger run between here and Billings. He came in on No. 6 Sunday evening from his last trip.

Mr. O'Connell was born in Pittsburgh, Pa., May 1864. He was married in Glendive to Miss Staffenberg. For 19 years he had resided in Glendive, and for 25 years had been employed by the Northern Pacific. On May 27, 1893, he was made a member of the Yellowstone Division 191, Order Railway Conductors, and had always held the greatest esteem of his associates.

The funeral services were held from the Methodist church at 2 o'clock this afternoon, being attended by a great number of friends of the family and the Order of Railway Conductors in a body. Burial was in Glendive cemetery.

Besides his bereaved widow and five children, Mr. O'Connell leaves a father, two brothers and one sister in Pennsylvania.
