The Post-Journal

In 1914, the death of Patrick W. Eagan, the Erie railroad conductor injured Tuesday in the collision at Conewango Valley, occurred the previous afternoon just after The Journal went to press. Eagan had been reported from the hospital as resting easily but his body was paralyzed from the neck down and his condition was such that recovery was practically impossible. Eagan had been in the employ of the Erie Railroad for 34 years. He was 69 years old and would have reached the age of retirement in March of this year.
