The accident at the Grand Trunk Railway on the night of Sunday, Dec. 7th, by which three of our young people lost their lives, was the most frightful that ever occurred in the history of our village. Harry M. Bready, formerly of St. Catharines, but for the past four months a compositor in The Independent office, Gertrude Hainer, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Murray Hainer and Maud Hughes, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Hughes, all met their death in a sudden and most terrible manner. [illegible - lengthy description of accident site] It was proposed and the proposition was acquiesed in by the families that the three bodies should be interred side by side in the cemetery, in a lot to be given by the Village Council, where a monument might be erected by the public as a token of the respect, esteem and sympathy. Mr. J.R. Bready, father of the deceased boy cannot arrive in Grimsby before Wednesday night and the funeral therefore will not take place until Thursday, when a union service will be held in the Methodist Church at 2 p.m. and interment will take place in Queen's Lawn Cemetery.... Miss Maud Hughes was the youngest daughter of Mr. Geo. Hughes and was about 25 years of age. .. Miss Gertrude Hainer was the only daughter of Mr. Murray Hainer and was about 19 years of age... Mr. Harry M. Bready is the youngest son of Mr. J.R. Bready, of Emo, Rainy River District, Ont...He was between 18 and 19 years of age...
