Union City Times - Thursday, March 22, 1900
March 19 - Brief mention was made in the Times of the burning of Samuel C. Brown's residence with all the contents. Mr. Brown had a very narrow escape from being cremated. He had been somewhat injured a few days before and during the night mentioned he was sleeping so soundly that he heard nothing extraordinary until his dog which he had locked in the barn awoke him by jumping against the door. When he opened his eyes he found the room full of smoke; jumping out of bed he found the front of the house had burned down and the fire was fast consuming the wing in which he was sleeping. He had only time to don a few garments and get out when the roof fell in. The house was comparatively new and the furniture was new. Mr. Brown carried an insurance of $850 on the house and $400 on the contents of the same. Upon investigation it was found that the dog, which for years had slept in the barn without an attempt to get out, had on the this occasion gnawed his way through the door and flown to the house, jumped against the door repeatedly and awoke his master in time to save his life.
Built home at 50 W. High St. Union City, PA, that is now on the National Register of Historic Places (about 1900).
