1918 - JACOB A. CRIBBS, AGED MAN KILLED ON R.R. - Imagining he had work to do in the locality where he was killed, Jacob A. Cribbs, almost a lifelong resident of Black Lick, wandered from the home of his daughter, Mrs. Harry Clark, of that place, Monday forenoon and was struck and killed by a northbound train on the P.R.R., on what is known as the old Stoneback farm located about one and one-half miles below Black Lick.

Mr. Cribbs was aged 83 years, 10 months, and 20 days. His body was terribly mangled and was carried a distance along the track where it was found by a foreigner who notified a section crew who were working a short distance
below where the accident occurred.

The man's remains were collected and put aboard the passenger train which leaves Indiana at 12:01 o'clock and taken to the Davis undertaking rooms in Blairsville, where it was prepared for burial. Later the body was taken to the home of the deceased's daughter, Mrs. Harry Clark, where the funeral service was conducted on Wednesday afternoon by Rev. J. C. Burnworth, of Derry. Burial was made in the Luther chapel cemetery, at Coral.

At times Mr. Cribbs would develop unusual strength and during these spells would walk quite a distance and it is thought that it was while experiencing one of these conditions that he wandered away from home. When these spells passed off he usually fell into a sleepy condition and it might have been possible that the man lay or sat down on the track and fell asleep.

Another theory advanced for his death is that he is hard of hearing, and it is thought he might not have heard the approaching train. Just why the men in charge of the train which killed him did not see him will possibly never be known.

Jacob A. Cribbs was born in West Wheatfield township and had been a resident of Black Lick and vicinity most all his life. He was a carpenter by trade. Several years ago while working in the old Bell's Mills flouring mill one of his arms was caught in the machinery and ground off.

He was twice married, his first wife being Mrs. Nancy Boyle, of Burrell township, to which union one child, G. I. Cribbs, of Derry, was born. His second wife, was Miss Margaret Repine, of Burrell township. The surviving children of this union are: Mrs. Harry Clark, of Black Lick; Charles Cribbs, of Freeport; Albert, of Vandergrift, and Mrs. Elmer Aultman, of near Kellysburg. Two brothers, Marion Cribbs, of Graffton, near Black Lick, and George Cribbs, of near Heshbon, survive.
