49 Delaware County Daily Times, 5 Jun 1916: Samuel Customer Killed by Train at Folcroft

Son of the Late Bethel M. Custer, of Glenolden Meets a Violent Death On the Railroad

Struck by a south-bound express train, as he was crossing the tracks of the Philadelphia, Baltimore & Washington railroad at Folcroft, in Darby Township, Saturday midnight, Samuel Custer, fifty years old, of Glenolden, member of a well known family in that section of the county, and son of the late Bethel Custer, was literally ground to pieces under the wheels of a train. The tragedy was not discovered until ten minutes later when the crew of an accommodation train following in the wake of the express, noticed portions of the dismembered body scattered along the track. The legs were picked up some distance from where the torso and head were found.

Custer had been visiting some friends in Folcroft and was on his way to his home in Glenolden when the fatality occurred. It is believed that he climbed a fence in front of the Folcroft station for the purpose of taking a short cut home and was in front of the oncoming train before he had time to save himself.

The crew of the express did not know that a man had been hurled into eternity by their train. The body was horribly mangled, portions of the remains being scattered along the track a distance of fully one hundred years from where the engine struck Custer.

An employee of the Pennsylvania Railroad notified Coroner Charles H. Drewes, of Darby, who took charge of the remains. By the light of lanterns, the Coroner and his assistants managed to recover what was left of the body and remove it to the morgue.

Custer is survived by a widow and two children, Samuel and Mabel. He was well known in Darby and vicinity, where he resided practically all his life and was well liked by all who knew him. His death comes as a great shock to his friends.

The railroad accident is the third to occur is that section of the county in a little over two days. Two of them resulted fatally, the first being the case of eleven-year-old Frederick Duprius, of Norwood, who was killed by a train at Holmes station on the B. & O. road last Thursday night. The other victim had a narrow escape from death under a train at Sharon Hill, Saturday.
