Moul, Morris - 1912

NOT AWARE OF ACCIDENT

Geo. Laughman States That He Didn’t Know He Struck Morris Moul.

George Laughman, of Laughmantown, in the Pigeon Hills, who was in the vehicle
which collided with the bicycle of Morris Moul, near Abbottstown, Monday night,
causing the boy’s death, says he knew nothing of the accident until Tuesday
morning when he heard a rumor of it and drove to Abbottstown to learn the
particulars.

The place on the road was so dark and the impact so slight that he did not even
known he had struck the unfortunate lad’s wheel, but an inspection of Mr.
Laughman’s runabout showed that the spokes of the bicycle had scratched his
wagon.

Young Moul retained consciousness almost until the time of his death.  A large
hole in the side of his abdomen is thought to have been caused by the handle bar
penetrating that portion of his body and an internal hemorrhage is thought to
have contributed to the cause of the boy’s death.

Funeral Thursday morning.  Interment in the Lutheran cemetery, Rev. F. C.
Sternat officiating.

Jacobs, Isaac - 1914

The Jacobs family held a reunion at Lafayette Park on last Saturday and it
proved a great success.  Over 600 people were at the park.  Members of the
Jacobs family in and around East Berlin went to a good deal of trouble to
prepare dinner for all who came and over 500 people enjoyed the good dinner
consisting of fried chicken and beef, red beets and pickles, three kinds of cake
and ice cream.  Seventy-four persons went to East Berlin by train to attend the
reunion, they were from Waynesboro, Altoona, Maryland, Franklin, York, Juniata
and Adams counties.  Most of those attending by train belonged to different
branches of the Jacobs family.  Rev. W. H. Miller of East Berlin made the
address of welcome.

Among the guests were four ministers, Rev. Miller and Rev. Sternat of
Abbottstown, Rev. Jacobs of York county, and Elder M. A. Jacobs of Waynesboro. 
There was some good singing, quartet and solos.

In the afternoon Berdes Jacobs of East Berlin read a history of the Jacobs
family.  Isaiah Jacobs, one of the first settlers of Yale, Mass., came to this
country in 1626.  He died in 1692 aged about 85 years.  M. A. Jacobs of
Waynesboro had the records as to Samuel Jacobs, born 1756 and owning a large
farm near East Berlin.  He was the ancestor of many of the family in and around
East Berlin of Samuel Jacobs of near Mummasburg.  John R. Kuhn exhibited a copy
of an old deed from William Penn to Henry Jacobs for over 350 acres from Beaver
Creek to a point near the Mummert Meeting House.

A historical committee was appointed composed of Mrs. Daniel Oller, Waynesboro,
Isaac Hoechst, East Berlin, and Mrs. Lewis Grass, York.

The old officers were re-elected as follows:

President, D. W. Jacobs, Weynesboro; Vice President, Daniel Jacobs, East Berlin;
Secretary, H. J. Bare, Waynesboro; Treasurer, Isaac Jacobs, Waynesboro;
Historian, M. A. Jacobs, Waynesboro.

Every one attending the reunion was so greatly pleased that it was voted to hold
the next annual reunion at Waynesboro, Aug. 21, 1915.  Many of the visitors left
town in the evening train.
