W. H. Carey

(From Saturday's Daily)

W. H. Carey, one of the best known men in this corner of the state, is dead at his home in Hobart, from an attack of pneumonia, at the age of 76 years. He was known throughout this city by business men, and at one time ran a dairy farm near Wheeler, where he lived many years. Later he moved to Hobart and won his election to the town board of trustees after one of the most unique campaigns in history. Although he lacked education, he was a shrewd business man and proved to be an efficient official. His memory was remarkable. Valparaiso lawyers recollect him in law matters here, when he quoted correct dates and occurrences for years back.

Mr. Carey was twice married. By his first wife, who died at Wheeler, he leaves three sons: T. J. Carey he leaves four sons: T. J. Carey and H. F. Carey, well known Wheeler men; Lorenzo Carey, residing in New London, Wis., and M. E. Carey, of New Philadelphia, Ind. By the last wife, who survives, no children were born.

The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock in the Hobart Christian church, with Rev. Mr. Howard, the pastor, officiating. Interment will be in the old Hobart cemetery.
