Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

Albion, Nov. 3 - Stanley Witkowski, aged 51 years, was killed instantly at the Brady stone quarry in the eastern part of this village this morning when he was crushed between a freight car and the traveling crane operated on a car used in loading the stone. As the crane was moved toward the freight car, Mrs. Witkowski was caught. Fellow employees who witnessed the accident caught him as he fell. When the crane was backed away, he died in their arms as his chest had been crushed in.

Dr. David G. Cooper and Dr. Arnold E. Wage were summoned and when it was learned the man was dead, Coroner L. G. Ogden, of Barre Center, was summoned and took charge of the case. Assisted by Dr. Wage, he conducted an autopsy this afternoon at the McNall and McNall morgue.

Mr. Witkowski has been a resident of this village for twenty-nine years and for fourteen years served as trustee of St. Mary's Catholic Church here. He was a native of Germany and leaves a wife, Josephine Witkowski of No. 14 Knapp St.; three sons, Frank, Stanley and Michael; three daughters, Mrs. Stella Bruski, and Misses Mary and Victoria Witkowski, besides one brother, Egnoc [Ignatius] Witkowski, of this village.
