Mr. Yates of Schenectady the undertaker in charge, furnished a beautiful casket and in every way gave the best of satisfaction to all present.

The pall bearers were John McGovern, A. Judd, Jas. Furlong, L. Taber, G. Hudson, C. D. Whitney, C. McDonald. M. H. Sheldon, D. Morton, J. Wilber, M. Wageuer, and G. Davis.
The remains were conveyed to Grove Cemetery by the pall bearers, followed by a large procession of R. R. employees and citizens.

Young Crowley said after he was injured, "I have no home or relatives known to me." There was a feeling of deep solemnity; and eyes unused to such emotions wept tears of sorrow, and sympathy for the sad fate of the bright and joyous hearted boy.

The saddest thoughts that ore us run
Is the bell that tolls the sad requiem
for the young.
