Death of Thomas Healey --- Creston Gazette, 25th.--- Thomas Healey, whose sickness has been mentioned several times recently, died at his residence, seven miles northeast of the city, in Spaulding township, at four o’clock yesterday afternoon, at the age of forty-three years and eleven months. For five months past Mr. Healey had been confined to his room and had suffered great pain from white swelling in his right leg. Local physicians operated on the limb and all possible medical skill rendered, but of no avail. Finally the patient was taken to Chicago a few weeks ago, where the most skilled physicians and surgeons were consulted, but their verdict was that the disease could not be checked and that death would soon ensue, and it did, as Mr. Healey had not been home from Chicago to exceed a week before the dark winged angel of death came and gave freedom to the spirit which returned to the God that gave it. --- Thomas Healey was born in Pittsburg, Penn., and came to Muscatine county, Iowa with his parents when but a boy. He resided in Muscatine county until 1878 when he removed his family to this county and had since resided here. He leaves to mourn his untimely departure to the world beyond a wife and nine children, ranging from one to eighteen years, who have the sincere sympathy of the entire community in this their hour of great bereavement. Mr. Healey had for many years past been one of Union county’s best farmers and I his death the community loses a good citizen. --- The funeral service will be held at St. Malachy’s church at ten o’clock to-morrow morning, conducted by Rev. Father Bede, after which interment of the remains will take place at Calvary cemetery.

Former Muscatine Business Man Recluse for Years, Dies in West. Captain E.W. Hershey Found in Dying Condition at Lonely Cabin. Was Quite Wealthy. Following Death of His Wife, Man Leaves Muscatine and for More than Thirty Years Lives Alone – Buried Beside His Old Mining Pardner. --- After living the life of a recluse for more than a quarter of a century, E.W. Hershey, a survivor of the civil war, and a former Muscatine business man, passed away in his lonely cabin near Fair Play in the Horse Shoe mining district in Colorado. The aged man, who left Muscatine in 1874, in order that he might bear alone his burdens, which came to him in the death of his wife, was found in a dying condition by Christopher Wagoner, a miner who had gone to the cabin on an errand. Before aid could be summoned, life had taken flight, and he was removed from the world, which he had tried to shun for more than thirty years. Coroner Ayers found death to be due to heart disease. --- Captain Hershey will be remembered by Muscatine’s older residents. He was reared in Muscatine and when Lincoln called for volunteers he was among the first to enlist. He served in the 11th Iowa regiment and upon his return from the war engaged in business in this city. He was a member of the firm of Hershey and Banks, which conducted a crockery store on East Second street. --- He was united in marriage with Miss Minnie Bishop, a daughter of the late J.A. Bishop. After a comparatively brief wedded life, his bride passed away and the loss was so keenly felt by the husband that he abruptly closed up his affairs in Muscatine and journeyed to the mountains of Colorado, where he might live within himself and with his own thoughts. --- He engaged in mining there and it is reported that he died quite wealthy. Among the papers found at his humble abode was a request that his remains be buried there by the side of his mining partner, Michael Forgarty, who died several years ago. A request was also found that none of his relative were to be notified of his death until after his burial, which was complied with. Captain Hershey had been operating in mines in the Horse Shoe district since 1879, and it is reported that a considerable sum of money was found at his cabin. --- The relative of the dead man are Bert C. Hershey, of Fairport, IA, a nephew, and Misses Katherine, Elizabeth and Margaret Vance his nieces.

SAD FATE OF A MUSCATINE COUNTY BOY. – Our readers will remember that we published some months ago a report of a massacre by the Indians of a party going to Montana, among whom was Zachariah Heusted, son of J.L. Heusted, Esq., of this county. The Iowa City Republican contains the following additional information of this sad affair:------- We have received from Dr. H. F. Livingston, at Ft. Thompson, Dakota Territory, a memorandum book which he obtained, through some friendly Indian, form a band of hostile Indians recently from the Platte. The Doctor writes us that the Indian from whom the book was obtained said he killed the man from who he took, and that his party killed several other white men at the same time; also this they were engaged in the Fort Phi…Kearney massacre last December. In proof of these stories they had 500 to 600 mules, a lot of scalps, watches, soldier’s and citizen’s clothing, &c.------In this book is the name of Zack Husted; also a letter envelope addressed to him at Fairport, post marked at Muscatine. He evidently attended the University at this place at that time. He says in his memorandum that he left home to attend school September 19th, 1865. His name is in the catalogue of that year. There is also a record of expenses, including books and tuition.-------- The following is the o--- memorandum of his trip on the Plains:
“Fort Larame, Dacota Ter.
“We left Laramie July 16th, traveled five miles and camped by the river. – Plenty of water, wood and fuel. We remained there till July 18th. We traveled that day twenty miles through the Black Hills. Very rocky and rough. – No water or camping ground till night.”
He was probably soon after murdered, as the Black Hills are a favorite resort of the hostile Indians.
