Mother and Two Children Train Wreck Victims

Calverton, NY - August 14 - (AP)

Mrs. George A. SHUFORD, Baltimore, North Carolina, died in a hospital today as a result of the Long Island railroad wreck here last night. She was pinned under the wreckage for five hours.

The number of dead remained at six, however, as it was learned that James E. WAY, Brooklyn, a supposed victim, only suffered from shock. He had been listed as "J. B. Waye" among the dead.

Mrs. SHUFORD's two children, George A. Jr., three, and Dorothy Louise, one, were killed. The others killed were: Harold F. FISH, Manhattan broker; William J. SQUIERS, engineer, and John MONTGOMERY, fireman, both of Greenport, Long Island. Six other passengers were injured seriously.

Mrs. SHUFORD died without knowing that her children had been killed. Her husband is an attorney of Asheville, NC.
