Death of a Young Citizen

Yesterday morning, Mr. William L. Darrow died at his residence on Water street. Mr. Darrow caught a severe cold by being exposed to that terrible snow storm which occurred on Friday afternoon early in December, and which will be remembered as ushering in the long cold spell of December and January. The cold he contracted ran into hasty consumption, which rapidly wasted his system. When the pleasant weather of February set in he began to mend, and his ultimate recovery was looked for. But last Friday evening he grew suddenly worse and gradually sank until he breathed his last yesterday morning. He was conscious to the end, and able to speak within a few minutes of his death.

Mr. Darrow was comparatively young, in his twenty-eighth year, and leaves a wife and one child. He was a member of the Iola Lodge, Knights of Pythias, the first one of their number who has died. He was born and raised in Dayton, was well known and highly respected.

None who knew him can fail to experience pleasant recollections of their association with him, or to be sorrowfully impressed with the intelligence of his decease.

The remains of Mr. Dicks have been deposited in a vault at Maumee City, and will be brought to Dayton for interment as soon as the weather moderates. The health of Mrs. Dicks is delicate, and exposure to such a temperature as now prevails, must be carefully avoided.

John W. Dooley
Dayton Daily Journal – March 25, 1897, Pg 1, Column 6


They laid John W. Dooley to rest Saturday amidst a profusion of flowers that the man deserved.

They quietly interred the body of a brave, bright railroader, who had met death unflinchingly.

He had been baggage-master and expressman on the Big Four for years and was known and liked all up and down the great line. His run was from Dayton to Lockland and back again. The conductor who was "in with him at the death" was James J. Doyle, who looks upon Dooley's death as a personal bereavement.

Dooley's family consisted of only himself and his wife, but he was a domestic man in the fullest sense of the term. He loved home and wife with the fervor of 30 years, during which no children had blessed the union. He regretted to die for his wife's sake, but he met death with the calmness of a soldier.

On March 24th, Conductor James J. Doyle entered the baggage car of the construction train. Dooley complained of feeling ill and said that he was experiencing deep agony. His face showed it. Conductor Doyle advised Dooley to leave the train but the latter clung to his post to the last.

On the return trip from Lockland to Dayton, Dooley failed rapidly, and Conductor Doyle saw that the expressman was critically ill. His face had assumed the pallor of death. When Middletown was reached, Dooley, still protesting, was removed from the train and given into the charge of Dr. Bundy, the road's physician and of Dr. Murray. His death occurred soon afterward. Long and continuous overwork may have hastened his decease. Heart failure was given as the cause.

Dooley was a member of the knights of St. John and of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, of which latter organization he was at one time an official of prominence. The conductors under whom he had served, together with the above organizations, contributed appropriate floral tributes. The funeral occurred from Rev. Wm. D. Hickey's church, St. Joseph's, and the ceremonies were beautiful and impressive.
