MAHANEY, John Thomas

Two Men Tired of Life ~ A Pair of Sensational Suicides
The Manhaney Suicide
- John Thomas Mahaney was born at Pine Grove on the National Pike in Allegany County, Md October 1847.  His father was keeping a hotel there at the time.  At the age of 20 he showed symptoms of insanity and was under the care of a Cumberland physician for some time but was considered perfectly sane again shortly afterwards.  In 1874, he was married to Miss Anne, a daughter of James Parsons, Somerset.  At that time he was engaged in the hotel business at Dunbar.  Failing to get his license renewed in 1879, he moved to Stockwood in 1880.  After running a hotel there one year, he rented a hotel in Meyersdale.  After some cause, he failed to secure possession of the property and litigation followed.  During 1882 he led a private life in Somerset.  In 1883, he returned to Dunbar again with the expectation of getting license and going into the hotel business again.  There he failed again.  Since that time he has done little or nothing.  In January of this year, he rented a hotel in Johnstown, but failing to get a petition for license he was forced to abandon the hotel project again.  Since that time he has acted strangely at times and his friends have become apprehensive.  The sequel shows their fears have been well founded.  His remains were interred in Oak Grove Cemetery Tuesday afternoon.
