    • In 1900, he is in Hagerstown, Maryland.

      A. J. Stottlemyer, living near Hancock, was struck by P. & R. engine No. 540 in the Western Maryland yard in this city at 12:20 o'clock today and died in a few minutes afterward at the train dispatcher's office, where he was taken. Both legs and his right arm were severed and his body badly mangled. When picked up he had a silver dollar in his hand, which he held until he died. Mr. Stottlemyer came here this morning to attend to his pension papers and had gone to the railroad to take a train for home. He boarded the noon train from Baltimore pulling into the yard, and jumped off. The engine was moving slowly and the engineer claims he did not see Mr. Stottlemyer, who failed to observe or hear the engine. His mangled remains were placed on a stretcher aad removed to the train dispatcher's office, where he died in a few minutes. Dr J. McP. Scott, the company's physician, was summoned, but found it impossible to be of any service. It was not known who the injured man was until his pockets were searched and the pension papers found. The railroad officials notified Justice Hoffman, who then made an investigation. It is thought his death was purely accidental. Mr. Stottlemyer was aged about 60 years and lived a few miles from Hancock. He leaves a large family. His body was forwarded to Hancock that evening. The Hagerstown Mail, September 7, 1900.


      Andrew J. Stottlemyer, who was killed by an engine in the W. M. yard here, took place this afternoon at Mt. Olivet Presbyterian Chapel, two miles from Hancock. Misses Mollie and Laura Stottlemyer, daughter of the deceased, accompanied the remains from this city to Hancock. The Hagerstown Mail, September 14, 1900.

      Mary Stottlemeyer, widow of Andrew J. Stottlemyer, and her seven children, by Attorney A. R. Hagner, docketed a suit against the W. M. R. R. Co. for damages resulting from the death of Andrew J. Stottlemyer, who was killed in the W. M. yards in Hagerstown last summer by being run over by a train. He jumped on the Baltimore accomodation, mistaking it, it is said, for the train for Hancock. In attempting to get off the train after it had started, he was run over by a shifting engine. This declaration has not been filed, but it is understood negligence on the part of the railway company will be alleged. The Hagerstown Morning Herald, June 13, 1901.
