killed near Garfield, Ohio, Sunday afternoon. Mr. Menegay was walking along
the track of the Pennsylvania Railway Company and was struck by the Toledo

Lake; Charles Menegay of Akron; Henry Menegay of New Berlin Ohio; James
Menegay and Mrs. Louis N. Ley, of Canton; Mrs. Alfonso Faiver, of Lansing

they were viewed by many friends and associates. Funeral services were held
at St. Louis Catholic church, Tuesday afternoon, and were conducted by Rev.
Father Senner. The attendance at the services was large. Interment was made
in the Catholic cemetery.
