    • Chester Times, 28 Nov 1939, page 1: LINWOOD MAN, 66, KILLED BY TRUCK

      William Gesner, 66, of 1408 Huddell avenue, Linwood, was killed at 6:10 o'clock last night when he was struck by a truck as he walked along Ridge road, about 100 feet east of Congoleum avenue, Linwood.

      He was pronounced dead at Chester Hospital, where he was taken by a motorist, Howard L. Perry, of 163 Harvey avenue, Linwood. Death was attributed to a fractured skill and internal injuries.

      The truck driver, Benjamin A. Fallin, Jr., 21, of 22 Ridge road, Trainer, was arrested by Linwood Patrolmen Kerchmer and Bothwell and was held by Magistrate Arthur F. Wolfe pending action of the coroner. The owner of the truck is William Nickles, of Trainer.

      Mr. Gesner was a member of one of Delaware county's oldest families. He was born in Ridley township on the old Leedom Farm, on Chester pike above Ridley Park.

      He was the grandson of the late George D. Gesner, a farmer for many years at Norwood. he was also a first cousin of the late Judge Isaac Johnson, of the Delaware county courts, and also a first cousin to the late Thomas Gesner, who was a brick manufacturer in Philadelphia.

      For 20 years he was roundhouse foreman at the East Side roundhouse of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad, in Philadelphia, and was a member of the Brotherhood Relief Association of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad.

      Two months ago he was held up while walking on the highway near his home in Linwood and was robbed at the point of a pistol of $75.

      He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Mary F. Gesner, who lives at 6524 Gesner street, Philadelphia, which is named for the family, and one daughter, Mrs. George F. Ward, of the Linwood address. A sister, Mrs. Susan Egge, of Frankford, also survives.
