| September/October 1977

JOHN M. STUART age 78, of Volant R. D. #1, died on June 17, 1977 at his home of an apparent heart attack.

Mr. Stuart was a member of the Church of the Living Word, and a member of the Northwest Steam and Gas Engine Historical Association. He was one of the organizers of the steam show of this area, therefore, his passing will be of great loss to the many who knew him. He had many pieces of antique tools and equipment of which he took much pride in displaying. He was a retired lumberman and farmer.

Submitted by Mrs. Charles McMurray, Sec, Northwest Steam and Gas Engine Historical Association, R. D. #3, Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania 16057.

CARL E. MILLER, 68 of Adams, Tennessee, died June 6,1977, after a lengthy illness. He was a retired millwright and welder. He hailed from Pennsylvania in the Roaring Springs area. He was most familiar with Keck-Gonnerman engines, but had repaired other kinds. He worked at a steam powered sawmill as a boy and was closely tied with the various shop work of the Pennsylvania Railroad.

Carl's property adjoined the Tennessee-Kentucky Thresher-men's Association show grounds and several of the members parked their engines on his ground before and after the show, using his water and electricity for which he would never take anything. He was always willing to help in any way he could.

He was a member of the United Methodist Church and Tennessee-Kentucky Threshermen's Association and will be greatly missed by his devoted family and many friends and the fellows of the Threshermen's Association that he was so good to.
