Train Crash*5 December 1921 The Bryn Athyn train crash of 5 December 1921 was called a 'Titanic' disaster. It happened when two passenger trains traveling on a single track of the Philadelphia and Reading Railway collided head-on between the now-defunct Woodmont and Paper Mill stations in Upper Moreland, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. One train was heading from Newtown to Philadelphia and the other in the opposite direction. The result was 27 dead, 70 injured, and the casualties included many who burned to death.

The local hero of the event was Jacob B. Klenk, who was credited with saving seven lives, one life being that of his sister-in-law, Ethel M. (Yerkes) Klenk, wife of his brother, William F. Klenk.

Below is our transcription of the story of the horrible ordeal published in The Philadelphia Inquirer on Sunday , 11 December 1921:

Bryn Athyn Hero Saved Seven Lives : Jacob Klenk Working to Free Eighth Victim When Driven Back, Modest Rescuer’s Hands and Arms Seared; Wants to Forget Wreck

The modest, unsung hero of the Bryn Athyn wreck is, without dispute, Jacob Klenk, of Southampton. Seven persons owe their escape from the fiery furnace of burning cars to Klenk. He was trying to save the eighth when he was driven away by flames, and he saw the victim slip back into the fire, and heard her last despairing shriek.

Klenk, an automobile man, hasn’t much to say about it. In fact, he says “he’d rather not talk about the horrible affair.” He insists that what he did was “only what any real man would have tried to do.”

Klenk left his home in Southampton Monday morning and boarded the ill-fated train from Newtown. When the crash came, he was hurled to the aisle, but was virtually unhurt, and he made his way to an exit. He heard a scream, in which he recognized his sister’s voice, that of Mrs. Ethel Yerkes Klenk. She was injured and scalded about the legs, and “Jake” gathered her into his arms and carried her to a place of safety outside.

Then he went back into the car, and a minute later came out with another woman. Then, a third. The fourth and fifth trips meant the saving of two men. Twice more – another man and another woman saved. Klenk was tiring, but went back to save another – the eighth.
Timbers Hold Victim

Then he heard another voice he recognized – that of Miss Elizabeth Shelmire. She was pinioned, one foot fast in the wreckage, bur she had drawn her body up to an opening in the roof. Klenk grabbed her and pulled, but the timbers held the foot. He tugged at cross-pieces of wood, but without result.

The flames were spreading rapidly. Klenk knew that whatever must be done, must be done within a minute. An axe would have meant the saving of the woman, but no one had an axe, and there was not time to obtain one from the nearest farm house.

Klenk gave one last tug. Then, with his coat ablaze and his hands and arms seared, his hair scorched, he was compelled to jump back from an onrush of flames. He saw Miss Shelmire throw her arms despairingly, heard the final cry of anguish, saw her slip back into the pit of fire.

Miss Shelmire’s body has not been identified. It lies with five others in the “unidentified group” at the Morgue in Jenkintown. Mrs. Klenk, the first person saved by “Jake” Klenk, is improving.

But “Jake” himself doesn’t want to talk about the heroism evidenced in the list of eight saved. He doesn’t want to talk about the wreck at all. “I’m glad I’m alive,” is his terse comment.

Census US 1930*5 April 1930Frances and Jacob B. Klenk were enumerated on the 1930 census taken on 5 April 1930 at 3621 North Fifteenth Street, Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Jacob was 35 years of age and worked as an automobile salesman for wages, and Frances was 33 years of age. They rented their apartment for $40 and did not own a radio set.3
Missing Person*1934Jacob's wife, Frances (Hogeland) Klenk, went missing after leaving Point Pleasant, Bucks County, Pennsylvania in 1934 and, after attempting to find her himself for some time, Jacob requested help from the Philadelphia police in March 1935. Jacob was then living at 4825 Griscom Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We don't know where Frances went, or if her husband ever found her before his death in May 1942. We don't know if she obtained a divorce, although we do know that when Jacob died, his mother completed the required information and reported he was married, and that his wife's name was Frances (Hogeland) Klenk. We do know that Jacob died on 11 May 1942 in Essex County, New Jersey, and that on 27 April 1942, one month before Jacob's death, Frances was living as the wife of Charles H. Middleton in Berwick, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

Below is our transcript of the newspaper article describing Jacob's desire to find his wife:

Wants to Hear of Wife

Personal search having failed to locate her, J. B. Klenk, 4825 Griscom Street, has asked police to continue inquiry for his wife, Frances Klenk, who left Point Pleasant, Bucks County, last year, and who has not been heard from since.

“Really, I thought I would be able to find my wife,” the man informed Sergeant Walter, “but I finally discovered that the task was too much for me. In my effort to trace her I visited nearly every town in this state, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland and Connecticut, and while not successful no one can claim I did not try.”

Unable to account for the absence of his wife, described as having been attractive and 37 years old, Klenk ventures the opinion that she may have been kidnaped and is being detained under restraint.7
Census US 1940*9 April 1940Jacob was enumerated without his middle initial on the 1940 census taken on 9 April 1940 at the Essex Mountain Sanatorium for Tuberculosis, Verona, Essex County, New Jersey. He was a patient in Ward Six and, other than his age of 45, whoever reported his information knew little about him.8
Death*11 May 1942He died of pulmonary tuberculosis on 11 May 1942 in Newark City Hospital, Newark, Essex County, New Jersey, at age 471,9,10
Burial*14 May 1942 and was buried on 14 May 1942 with his father in the Oak Lane Section, Lot 336, Grave 4, of Lawnview Cemetery, Rockledge, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.1,10,9,11
