of Rockville, Parke Co., IN. was killed under a train on the Big Four track here early this morning after he had started home from to this city. He worked for Charles Pfeffenberger here for several months, summer before last and came over Sunday morning to visit friends.

 Possible Record Problem!
       [Note: 1.]  I don't think the JAHRIES moved to California for several years because Leah managed Valeska's "Hat Boutique" in the Hotel Deming here in Terre Haute for the 1914-1915 timeframe. [REF: Mike #2]
     [Note: 2.]  John M. Jahries died in Los Angeles on Sept. 21, 1953. Though I am presuming for the time being this is the same man who married Leah, the obit asserts that he leaves a widow, Zita Caughlin also formerly of Terre Haute. Zita (Caughlin) Jahries died on October 1961 but I have not yet examined her obituary. Mike McCormick (Occupation: Scenic Designer) [REF: Mike #2] and [REF: Mike #3]
