-- Last Thursday evening, 18 Aug 1910, a terrible fate overtook Mr.
Daniel Harvey of Townsend.
He was attending to his
evening work when he was attacked by a three-year-old bull, and so
crushed and gored that death came in two and a half hours.
He called for help and his
sister, Miss Mary Harvey, ran to his assistance and drove the
infuriated beast off with a small stick. Dr. Howell of Jarvis was
called in, but the injuries were such that medical skill was of no
Mr. Harvey was an old
resident of Townsend, having come to the Township with his parents
when a boy.
Two sisters survive him,
Mary, who has always lived with him and acted as his housekeeper,
and Mrs. Dunn of Woodhouse.
Another sister, Mrs. John
Forster, at one time a resident of the county east of this town,
predeceased her brother two years ago.
Just before he died, Mr.
Harvey, who was a man of large means, expressed a desire that his
will be made and a neighbor, Mr. Ira Vail, wrote it out for him.
His funeral took place last
Monday forenoon, when service was held by Rev. Father Martin of St.
Marys church in this town, and afterwards the remains were interred
in the R. C. cemetery.
