1851 - 1860
December 25, 1860 (Tuesday)
We learn that
a poor man named Patrick Healey, belonging to Holyrood, went
into the woods on the 10th instant, for the purpose of cutting timbers
for a boat; but not returning, fear was entertained for his safety, and a party
of his neighbours went in search of him the same night; but, notwithstanding
a most diligent search, he was not found until the following day, when Mr.
Wm. Penny found the body about 6 miles from Holyrood, quite dead. An inquest
was held before P. Strapp, Esq., and a Coroner's Jury, when the Jury brought
in a verdict of "Death
from exposure to the weather." The deceased leaves a family of seven
children in a helpless state. - Con. Bay Standard, 19th.
