Bailey, and she then appeared to be enjoying excellent health.  She had many friends in this county who will be sorry to hear of her death.  (Tuesday, September 21, 1892, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

A terrible accident occurred at the Pennsylvania-avenue crossing of the Erie railroad in Elmira, NY, last Wednesday night at 11 o’clock.  Five persons were returning from the theater to their homes in Southport.  They were riding in a wagon drawn by one horse.  They were William Conklin and wife, Edward Blanchard and wife and Mrs. Maggie Pitts.  The crossing is guarded by gates during the day, but these are not operated after 6 o’clock in the evening.  No one knows just how the accident occurred but the wagon was struck by an Erie vestibule train running at a high rate of speed.  The first known of the accident by the trainmen was when the train halted at the station, nearly half a mile from the crossing.  As it drew into the station the locomotive bore the ghastly burden of three crushed and mangled bodies.  They were those to Mr. and Mrs. Blanchard and Mrs. Conklin.  The wagon was scattered along in bits, some of it dropping off at the Water-street crossing on the north side of the Chemung river.  The body of Mrs. Pitts and the mangled form of William Conklin, still alive, were picked up about 100 yards from the crossing.  Mr. Conklin was at once taken to the Arnot-Ogden hospital in the ambulance.  It is thought that he will recover, although his injuries are serious.  There is great indignation in Elmira over the fact that the railroad crossings are not guarded at night.  (Tuesday, December 7, 1892, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
