Herman Haupt
Herman Haupt died on a Pullman car named "Irma", while traveling from New York to Philadelphia, Dec. 14, 1905.  He was 89 years old.  He was traveling with his son and heading to Philadelphia to spend some time at his son's home.  He had long suffered with heart problems.  Immediately after he boarded the train, he became ill.  The train's conductor urged Lewis M. Haupt to remove his father from the train.  Lewis believed his father would be able to make the trip.  Once the train departed the JerseyCity, NJ train yards heading toward Newark, NJ, the General became unconscious and minutes later had died.  The body was removed from the train at Newark and the funeral was held at the residence of Professor Lewis M. Haupt's home at 107 North Thirty-Fifth Street in Philadelphia.  The General had been living in Washington, DC at the Concord Hotel.    He is interred in the West Laurel Hill Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd, PA - in the Norriton Section Lot 230.  See below for photos.
