      Identified as Stephen Snyder (sic), white male, 86, widower, died Oct 6 1916, cause of death gross injuries. (Note: This death is also recorded in Harrison County, in which he is identified as Stephen Snider, white male, 85, widower, died Oct 6 1917, cause of death "run over by train." Both records are ledger-style, with a column labeled "Place of Birth" but no column for place of death, and it is common for that column to instead reflect the place of death. In both records, the location Philippi is entered in that column. "The History of Doddridge County," p. 243, reports death location as near Philippi, but incorrectly states death date as 1915.)
