Items from the
[sic], an old resident of Simcoe, passed away rather suddenly
He was working on Thursday,
planting corn, and during the day complained to some of his neighbors of
having much difficulty breathing.
He retired at an early hour and in
the morning when Mrs. Maddigan went in to his room to call him to
breakfast, she found that he was dead. Judging from appearances he had
been dead for some hours.
Dr. Hayes, who was immediately
summoned says the cause of death was heart failure.
Deceased was in his 82nd year and
leaves a widow and two sons, John Maddigan of Houston Texas, and Patrick
Maddigan, to mourn his lost.
