From Mauch Chunk PA Times-News, Mon. Feb. 11, 1924

The Wytchuntas family, of West Hazleton, lost its second member within three months, as a result of an accident Saturday when Joseph, aged 13, was so badly mangled on the Conyngham section of the Lehigh Valley Railroad late in the afternoon that he died at 12:10 Sunday morning at the Hazleton State Hospital.
William Wytchunas, aged 23, a brother of the dead boy, was accidentally killed by a bullet from the gun of Harry Hersker, on a high mountain in the Black Forest, near Coter's Camp, Potter county, on November 6th last, a little more than three months ago.
