      Newspaper Obituary - Friday, July 5, 1907 Wilkes Barre Record - Wilkes Barre, PA - Drowned In River - Plymouth Man Falls From Boat With Fatal Results - Companions Try to Save Him, But Are Unable to Keep Him From Going Under - Body Was Not Recovered at a Later Hour - Thomas Flemming, a well known resident of Plymouth, was drowned in the river yesterday afternoon while returning to his home after spending a few hours with a number of companions on the east side of the stream. Mr. Flemming, accompanied by Edward Easen, John Gneiss, William Johns and Thomas Jones, had entered a row boat but a few minutes before the accident to row to the Plymouth side at the foot of Ferry street, but in some manner the boat upset and all were thrown into the river. The spot where the accident occurred was quite deep and all struggled to save themselves. Mr. Flemming on account of accidents had his leg broken on two different occasions and the limb being still quite stiff, he could do nothing to save himself. Mr. Easen went to his rescue, holding him up as long as he possibly could, thinking the others would come to his rescue, but they did not, and in order to save himself he had to let go, with the result that Flemming went to the bottom and was drowned. Deceased was a resident of Plymouth for a great many years. During the years he was employed in the mines he met with no accident of any consequence, but since retiring he broke his right leg twice, and since the last accident it was necessary for him to carry a crutch. He was one of the best known residents of the West Side. He is survived by the following children: Mrs. James Kinney, Miners Mills; Mrs. John Hartman, this city; Mrs. Edward Kinney(Kennedy), with whom deceased made his home; Mrs. Patrick Kinney, Mary, Agnes, and Frank. A prompt effort was made to secure the body, but up to midnight it had not been found.

The action grows out of a serious fall which the plantiff had on September 5, 1905, while crossing a trestling which spans a creek in the defendant township. The creek is at the foot of Welsh Hill. According to the plantiff he was walking along the car tracks, which are near the trestling, and to get out of the way of a car he stepped as he supposed on the trestling. Instead of finding the trestling he landed in the creek below, a distance of ten feet. The plantiff also alleges that it was very dark on the night of the accident, and that the trestling was not protected. As the result of the fall the plantiff had his left arm broken and was otherwise seriously injured. Attorneys James L. Lenahan and James Brennan represent the plantiff, while Attorneys John F O'Boyle and James H. Shea are for the township.
