DORSEY, (infant) Mary Evelyn

Death of an Infant
The following item, taken from the Fincastle (Va.) Herald of July 30, will be of interest to many friends here of the afflicted minister:
Mary Evelyn, infant daughter of  Rev. W. B. and Mrs. Bessie S. Dorsey, died at their home in Fincastle Saturday evening, July 25th. 1891, of cerebral meningitis, aged 6 months and 13 days. She was born January 13, 1891, was baptized May 2d, and buried in the Methodist cemetery here July 27th. Rev. Dr. Whisner, the presiding elder, who baptized the little one, was present at its burial. From the beginning of its sickness, which  was not over twenty hours' duration, there was but little hope of its recovery, the kindness of physicians and friends failing to save its life. This was a very sad death, and while the bereaved parents can never become reconciled to this, their greatest affliction, yet they may derive consolation by knowing that they have the deepest sympathy of all our people, to whom they have greatly endeared themselves during their short residence here.

For years one of the most brilliant attorneys of the Cumberland bar, former Judge Doub was concerned with some of the most important litigation in the State and Federal courts of Maryland. Recognition of his professional ability was manifested when, in 1915, he was made the Republican candidate for Attorney General of Maryland.  Before his nomination and election to the bench, he was widely known as one of the most prominent attorneys in the state.

He served two years as principal of Williamsport High School and about five years as principal of Beall High School in Frostburg. In 1893 he was elected treasurer of Allegany County, and in January, 1894, was admitted to the bar. Later he served as city attorney for both Frostburg and Cumberland. One of the most influential representatives of the  Republican party in Maryland, for Judge Doub was delegate at large to the Republican National Convention in 1916. In 1888 he married Miss Mary Gruber, of Washington County, who died in 1891. In 1900 he married Miss Anne Peyton Cochran, a daughter of George M. Cochran, of Staunton, Va. The second Mrs. Doub died January 18, 1942. Surviving are four daughters, Miss Anne Peyton Doub; Mrs. Lester Sigourney, Bristol, Conn.; Mrs. William A. Glasgow, Washington, D.

Miss Bridget L Dougherty died suddenly Wednesday morning from heart disease at the residence of Michael Tearney on South Mechanic Street, where she had made her home for many years.  The deceased was the eldest sister of the late Dr B A Dougherty, of Miss Ellen Dougherty and Mrs M Tearney.  She was born in York County, Pennsylvania upwards of sixty years ago and until the winter of 1888 enjoyed good health.  During the blizzard of that winter, Miss Dougherty was exposed to its terrible fury in Philadelphia and brought home seriously ill from the effects.  Heart disease followed the shock and she has been in ill health ever since.  Tuesday night she ate a hearty supper with the family, but complained of being much oppressed by the heat.  Yesterday morning at 8 o'clock, a substantial breakfast was served in her bedroom.  This she partially ate.  At 10:15, Dr Wiley was sent for; at 10:30 she was dead.  The deceased was a consistent member of St Patrick's church.

DOUGLAS, John C.

Lonaconing, Md., April 6 - John C. Douglas died at his home on East Main Street at 10 a.m. yesterday. Mr. Douglas had been ill six weeks, and on Sunday he was reported somewhat improved. Liver disease was the cause of death, and though for weeks past, he was a very sick man, he was fully confident that he would recover, and was cheerful through it all. Mr. Douglas was a native of Ireland and first saw the light in the most picturesque spot in that land, Seven Churches, in the beautiful Vale of Avoca, where the three waters meet. He left Ireland in his early manhood and went to England where he worked in the ore mines, Later he came to the United States and worked in the coal mines in Pennsylvania. Mr. Douglas and a companion walked from Johnstown, Pa., to Cumberland in 1866, and coming to Lonaconing he found employment in the Detmold mines. A few years afterward, he was able to go into business here, and made some money, which he invested shrewdly and six or seven years ago he was able to retire and take life easy. In May 1907, Mr. Douglas was elected a member of the city council of Lonaconing, and shortly afterward, in company with his life-long friend, Peter Bush, of Ocean, sailed for Ireland to visit his native village. He remained in Ireland about three months and returned none the worse for the journey. Mr. Douglas went to Washington to see the inauguration and became ill a few days afterward, and it is believed that the exposure on that day is responsible for his illness and death. Deceased is survived by his wife and five children: William and John of Washington, D. C.; Michael, of Basin, Wyoming, and Joseph and Kate, of Lonaconing and Sister Anna Louisa, of the Order of St. Joseph, who is in a convent in Philadelphia. Mr. Douglas was married twice. His first wife-who died 22 years ago in Lonaconing-was Mary Burns, and she was the mother of all the surviving children. His second wife was Catherine Murphy, whom he married 20 years ago. Four brothers and one sister of the deceased are living, James and Patrick, of Portland, Oregon; and Michael and Thomas, of Butte, Montana, and one sister, Mrs. Annie Boals, of New Amelia, Neb. John C. Douglas was a good citizen, and was ever foremost in any movement for the betterment of his town. He was always happy and a most companionable man. He had been ailing since November but developed no dangerous symptoms until after his return from Washington last month. His sons and daughters were here last week, but as his condition improved, they went home. His son, Michael, of Basin, Wyoming, had not yet reached home, and a telegram was sent to Omaha, Neb., yesterday to intercept him. At this writing, no date for the funeral has been set."

DOWDEN, Samuel

Alaska, W,Va., March 29 – Not seeing anything in last week’s paper about the sickness and death of Mr. Samuel Dowden, I will try and write something this week. Mr. Dowden was sick about two weeks with pneumonia, then spinal meningitis, which took him off in about five days. Rev. Edwards preached a very comforting sermon, assisted by Rev. Myerly, to a large and sympathetic congregation. Everything that could be done by medical aid was done by Dr. Lantz of this place and Dr. Spear, of Cumberland. His family and friends did everything they could for him. His remains were laid to rest in the Frankfort cemetery. Mr. Dowden was a kind and loving husband and father. He leaves a wife, two daughters, Mrs. Ada Haines and Mrs. Lucy Dunn, one adopted daughter, Nannie, at home, and two sons, Tommy and Floyd. The family has our sympathy.
