Killed by an explosion of fire damp, in the Ernest No. 2 Mine.

Indiana Evening Gazette, Monday, 14 February 1916:

"Pitiable scenes were enacted at St. Bernard's Roman Catholic church this morning and afternoon when funeral services and mass were conducted for the remainder of the dead, all of whom were members of either the Catholic church at Ernest or the church here. The services were in charge of the Very Rev. N.P. McNelis, of Indiana, assisted by several priests from the county. A large trench was made in St. Bernard's cemetery and the caskets containing the bodies of the victims were placed in the one grave. The surviving relatives of the victims and the many little children made a sight that will long be remembered in the minds of those who witnessed. Despite the sadness of the occasion there was little excitement, the widows and children of the married miners and the friends of the single men watching quietly the last rites over the bodies of their beloved dead."
