The  Daily  Democrat
Tuesday, January 5, 1892
          Undertakers Wilson & Son this morning buried the body of the old man, Dobney, killed by the cars in this city on Tuesday.  His prayer book and rosary were interred with him.  Efforts were made by Coroner Bruce to ascertain if he had any relative or friends at Anderson, but that officer's labors in that direction were fruitless.  Dobney spent an entire winter in the poor house of this county, while  Mr. John Clark  was Superintendent, and he was very deaf.  He is also remembered by  Street Commissioner Dobbins  as a deaf tramp.  This evidence was shown a t the inquest, and it is fair to presume, therefore, that he did not hear the approach of the engine which killed him.
