25 Years Ago

* Through the courtesy of William Jabine II, chief, Bureau of Highway Information, State Roads Commission, information and a map of the Mt. Airy bypass (Relocated Route 27) is furnished. State Roads Commission officials are hopeful that the project will be opened to traffic in the spring or early summer of 1971. -- Community Reporter, Jan. 9, 1970.

75 Years Ago

* Dementio Fabizzio, an Italian laborer employed at the plant and living in W. J. Haines' tenant house near the railroad a short distance east of town, was found dead on the tracks, the body horribly mangled, this Friday morning, shortly after the East Mail had passed over him and dragging the body from the second iron bridge to a point opposite to where he lived, a distance of 150 yards. The indications are strong that he was shot and the body afterward placed on the track, robbery being the motive. He received his pay at the plant yesterday and had the check cashed and it is reported that his money is missing. He was about 33 years of age and leaves a wife and five children. -- Union Bridge Pilot, Jan. 9, 1920.

100 Years Ago

* Joseph Williams, aged 54 years, is said to be another victim of the flint mills at Hood's Mill, in this county, in which he was employed. He died on Tuesday, it is alleged, from inhaling the dust. He leaves a widow and seven children. State's Attorney Fink recently met representatives of the state Board of Health at the mills and the situation was carefully canvassed. The company has finally concluded, having done all in its power without avail to afford protection to its workers, to shut down the mills indefinitely. We are informed that operations have been discontinued. -- American Sentinel, Jan. 12, 1895.
