"This is the famous dog, Romey, owned by the Kress family of Johnstown. During the flood this dog performed the wonderful feat of saving the lives of three people, Mrs. Kress, child, and domestic. After they had fallen from the house top the dog pulled them to floating logs and boards and saved their lives."
