1851 - 1860



December 25, 1860 (Tuesday)

Melancholy Occurrence.
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.
