    [Two Cohoes Men Killed at Montcalm Landing - John Fonda and Richard Dwyer Struck by a Train Thursday Night - The mutilated bodies of John Fonda and Richard E. Dwyer, both of Cohoes, were found about seven Friday near Montcalm Landing, the bodies being found by a man from Fort Ann who was on a yachting trip on Lake Champlain. The body of Fonda, with skull fractured and one leg broken, was found in the water close to the railroad tracks and that of Dwyer, also with skull fractured and both legs broken, was on the other side of the tracks near the high board fence, near the Montcalm Landing hotel, that stands between the railroad and highway. The bodies were taken to John F. Gunning's undertaking rooms in Ticonderoga, and in the afternoon Edgar Ashline, manager of the Wilcox Department store, in which both men were employed, and his assistant, Gilbert Roberts, accompanied by Undertaker A. G. Bovin came to Ticonderoga to take the bodies to Cohoes. Fonda and Dwyer were on an excursion through Lake Champlain, given by the Cohoes Business Men's association. Preferring to go fishing, they left the excursion party at Montcalm Landing and rented a boat from George W. Stewart. They returned with the boat about 7:30 in the evening and Mr. Stewart, after handing them their fish from the boat, saw them start down the track toward the Montcalm station, about a quarter of a mile away. That was the last seen of them alive. It is supposed, however, that the men, while walking side by side between the rails, were struck by either the second section of the excursion train or the northbound passenger train due at Montcalm at 8:08. The two trains met at Montcalm, but neither engineer was aware that his engine had struck anybody. Fonda was 54 years of age and is survived by his wife and three children. Dwyer was 50 years of age and leaves two sisters. Ticonderoga Sentinel, September 9, 1915]
