CARNEY, Capt. A. A.
 
"At a meeting of St. Patrick's T. A. B. Society, of Westernport, Md., held on Sunday, July 5, 1903, the following resolutions were adopted. Whereas, This society has heard with feelings of the deepest regret of the death of our late fellow member Capt. A. A. Carney of Wheeling, W. Va., who was a charter member and who, for thirty-four years used his best efforts and influence for its welfare and always had its best interest at heart and labored faithfully for the cause of temperence[sic]. His gentlemanly affable bearing, his courteous manner and his candid, just and honorable conduct commanded the respect and esteem in which he was held and endeared him to all his fellow members. His life was that of the perfect Catholic gentleman, believing in and better still, living up to the precepts of our Holy Faith. The loss his family has sustained we cannot fully appreciate, but we can well imagine that one of the joys of the hereafter to which they look forward will be a reunion with the loving husband and devoted father.  That these resolutions be spread upon our minutes, be published in The Piedmont Herald and a copy be sent to his family."
