The men were from 18 to 55 years old. 191811-365 through 191811-389

Chronik

Gustav Albert Kosak: born on March 22, 1879 was the third son and fourth child of AUGUST and HENRIETTE WILHELMINE DALCHAU KOSAK. He was christened April 3, 1879. At fourteen, he was confirmed at the Lutheran church in Tauroggen on August 22, 1893. He, also, immigrated to the United States. However, it is not known how or when. He probably migrated by way of Breman, Germany. Gustav joined his American family in North Braddock. “Uncle Gus” was a favorite uncle of Mildred Koehler Knappke. Eventually, he married Augusta Zanger, affectionately called “Aunt Gussie” by niece MARTHA. They had two children, Lydia and Albert. It seemed this family was well liked by the KOEHLER children. Gustav worked at the Jones & Laughlin steel mills as a carpenter. The company was expanding and new furnaces were being built. Natural gas was used to fire these furnaces. As a new furnace was completed, the gas was turned and it was put to use. As Gustav’s crew was working on one furnace, the gas for a newly completed one next to it was ordered on. By mistake, the gas in the unfinished furnace was turned on instead! Over come by the fumes, Gustav and crew fell to their deaths. Gustav was 39, in the prime of his life, with a wife and two children. His sister, HELENE, was notified by telephone. Few telephones were available at this time. The nearest one was three houses away. “Mother was grating horseradish in the backyard with Mildred and me,” recalls MARTHA KOEHLER ORTON. We had been joking about her crying from the horseradish when the neighbor came with the news. Mother said, “Now I can cry real tears.” His widow and children remained in the Pittsburg area.
