William Charles




Close upon the tragic death of his wife, William Trexler, of Topton, met his death under a train on Sunday morning. He was wandering along the tracks at midnight and was cautioned to keep away but sometime between one and two o'clock he was struck by an East Penn train and his body was found lifeless at 2 a.m. The remains were removed to the rooms of Undertaker Schafer at Topton. The deceased was about thirty-eight years of age and leaves four small children, two brothers, one employed at the Topton Furnace and the other is the baker at Topton, and one sister. He was lately employed at the Topton Foundry. About three months ago he served as watchman at the Topton Foundry. The story of his wife's serious illness was then to the effect that the wife boasted of her husband having such a good job and some of the other women grew jealous and clubbed her with brooms. The clubbing caused her to suffer internally and she died in the Allentown hospital. After her death the four small children were given out to relatives and one is at the Topton Orphans Home. The date of the funeral has not yet been fixed.
