JNEWS: Dillon, Vernon [MC???? RIP] killed in the 1918 Split Rock munitions plant

Historic Moment: A look back at Split Rock explosion
Jul 16, 2018 Jason Gabak Eagle Observer, News, News, Skaneateles Press
By Jorge and Beth Batlle Village and Town Historians

*** begin quote ***

July 2, 1918, an explosion at the Split Rock munitions plant not only shook the City of Syracuse, but also sent shock waves as far away as the Village of Skaneateles. Of the approximately 600 men working the 3 to 11pm shift, 50 men were killed in the blast. Two, Vernon Dillon and James King were from Skaneateles.

This tri-nitro-toluene (TNT) plant was one of 18 in the country. It was started in 1915 by the Semet-Solvay Company. It was located on 1,000 isolated acres in an old and abandoned quarry  off the end of Onondaga Road, just west of the City, in an area now called Taunton. Approximately 25% of the nation’s explosives were produced here and sent to Belgium and France for the World War I effort. The plant employed  3,000 people by 1918. John Hazard of Skaneateles was the Vice President of the company.

James King and Vernon Dillon probably boarded the Auburn-Syracuse trolley in the Village earlier that afternoon and rode the line into work. Arriving at the plant, they passed through a turnstile, and both, as required left their matches and cigarettes behind, and headed for their work stations.

Vernon Dillon, age 23, was one of the 300 patrolman, who day and night guarded the 14 miles of fence that enclosed the facility. Dillon, a graduate of Skaneateles High School and Manhattan College in New York City, had worked for the plant for two years. As a patrolman, he carried a .38 caliber revolver, and was trained in the special techniques of fighting munitions fires.

When the fire whistle blew that night, he was one of the firefighters who responded. A fire had started from an overheated gear in one of the grinding machines. At first, the firefighters were able to keep the flames under control, until the hoses went limp due to a failure of the water system. A wind blowing up from the south fanned the flames until they were dangerously close to the 60 foot tower on TNT Building #1. The men quickly realized that they had to get as far away as possible.

But, before everyone could flee to safety, there was a blinding light, a deafening roar, and a fiery ball shot up into the air, and fell in a shower of sparks. Men were tossed up into the air, clothes torn from their bodies, (and their skin was yellow from the picric acid used in the manufacture). Breathing became difficult because of the super heated air and noxious gasses released into the air.

Vernon’s body was badly burned by the flames. He was identified in the morgue by family members by a missing tooth and other markings. The records show that he died of a crushed skull. He was laid to rest in St. Mary’s Cemetery in Skaneateles.

James King had only been working at the plant 4 weeks. He was waiting to be called up in the Draft, for the country was fighting in World War I. The body of the 26 year old was among the 15 workers who were so severely burned that relatives were unable to identify them. Other men from Skaneateles that survived in spite of their injuries were Charles Wood, John Newman and Leslie Hoyt.

There were many acts of heroism that night. For example – a little over a ton of material had exploded. while there was another 400 tons in storage in the western section. If the fire had spread there, experts say, the explosion would have destroyed the entire City of Syracuse. As it was, 10 buildings were destroyed, with property losses amounting to $1,000,000 (15.8 million in today’s dollar)

JOBIT: Henry, Winston “Wenty” [MC???? RIP] 2018-Feb-13

2018-Feb-24

https://www.meaningfulfunerals.net/?action=obituaries.obit_view&CFID=2f996c98-4f9f-4b30-a3ae-83d5c16617f5&CFTOKEN=0&o_id=4642653&fh_id=14294

Winston Henry
December 28, 1945 – February 13, 2018

Mr. Winston “Wenty” Henry

Winston “Wenty” Henry was born in St. Ann, Jamaica, the only child of his mother, Hilreita Comrie (nee Lammie – deceased) and the first born of his father, Alonzo Henry. He attended Calabar High School and St. Andrew Technical High School in Jamaica.

In 1967, the pioneer in him was manifested when he set his mind on achieving higher education and applied to colleges in the United States and was accepted. He migrated to the United States as an international student and studied at Manhattan College, New York, where he knew no one. After graduation, Winston worked in several industries but found his professional interest in the financial industry.

In 1987, he married his long time friend and love of his life, Avril, deceased only eight months ago. Winston and his wife were avid travelers. Both have traveled to at least five of the seven continents. They were well known for bringing people together by planning and directing fun cruises to exotic countries, bus rides and weekend getaways. 

Winston was a fashionable man, full of life, and loved to make others laugh with his wit and infectious sense of humor even to the end. He was ill for a very short period. February 13, the day he departed this life, he had those in his hospital room laughing through our tears with his last humorous words spoken in his native dialect, the Jamaican Patois. In response to those fussing over him and trying to make him comfortable, he quipped, “Mi good, mi good, uno leave mi alone, cho.”

Winston was a profound family man. He loved his wife, his children and stepchildren. He was also a wonderful cook. He was the only one who could make his daughter Margaret, who greatly dislikes turkey meat, eat the dish when he cooked it. He was a favorite among his cousins. Additionally, Winston was a man for the people and was politically inclined. He could often be found on the campaign trail for the Democratic Party. He was elated in 2008 when the first black man was elected as president of the United States of America and was proud that he had done his part in helping to make the dream of a black president a reality.

Winston leaves behind to carry on his legacy, his daughter Margaret Henry and son Philburn Henry; stepchildren, Paul Dennis (Anne Langhorne), Paula Dennis (Robert Chang) and Pauline Dennis (Adrian Coley); and his step grandchildren, Patrick Dennis, Chauntay Dennis, Emanii Coley, Brandon Chang, Adrian Coley, Jr., Aliyah Coley, Kyle Dennis and Brianna Dennis. He is also survived by his father, Alonzo Henry; 6 sisters and 2 brothers; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. A writer once said, “A great man is one who leaves others at a loss after he is gone.” You may be gone from our sight but you live on in our hearts.
