Obituary: Cambria Freeman, Ebensburg Friday 7 October 1887; p 3,c 2 KILLED ON THE RAILROAD: On Sat. last Mr. James McGOUGH, an old citizen of Summerhill Twp, while returning to his home from Wilmore was instantly killed by a freight train on the railroad. Mr. McGOUGH who was about 70 years of age left Wilmore between 5 and 6 o'clock to walk home, a distance of about 2 miles. When at the station at Wilmore, he started down the railroad track which is somewhat nearer than following the township road and had got down to where he would turn off to take a path that leads to his house. He started across the track-in some unaccountable manner failed to notice a train that was coming up stepped directly in front of it and was of course struck and instantly killed, the body being thrown about 20 ft. to the side and when the train was stopped, life was extinct. Mr. McGOUGH was a widower, his wife having died about 2 years ago. He leaves a family of 6 children all grown up, 4 sons - John, Thomas, Paredius, and William; and 2 daughters, both married - the one, wife of Charles FRESH and the other married to Albert CARPENTER. Mr. McGOUGH was born in Summerhill Township and was a brother of Messers John, Patrick, William and Daniel McGOUGH and Mrs. BOYLE and Miss Elizabeth McGOUGH who all reside in that neighborhood. He was a member of the Catholic Church and his his remains were interred in St Bartholomew's Cemetery at Wilmore on Monday last.
