HEALEY, Dr. Patrick A.

Dr. Patrick A. Healey died at his residence on South Mechanic street at 2:50 o’clock Tuesday morning, He was in a semi-unconscious state when he died, and had been so for several days, though suffering no pain. An autopsy revealed the fact that death was caused by large internal tumor. The deceased was born in Longford Ireland, December 14, 1818, and was at the time of bis death in his 64th year. He came to America when a child, and received his education at St. Mary's College, Baltimore. While yet a youth he went West with his brother-in-law, Gen. Barry, and engaged in merchandising. He then came to Cumberland, where he studied medicine with his brother, Doctor Thomas A. Healey, and graduated at a medical college in Philadelphia. He returned about the year 1840 to Cumberland and began the practice of medicine, first alone, then with his brother, Dr. T. A. Healy, and latterly with Dr. S. P. Smith. During the war he served as assistant surgeon in the Second Maryland, Potomac Home Brigade. About 1856 he was married to Mrs. Gales, whose maiden name was Cross. He had eight children, only three of whom are now alive, Miss Lulu, Edward and Ella. Dr. Healy was well and favorably known to all our citizens. He possessed an exceptionally genial and sunny disposition and bad a smile and a pleasant word for all whom he met. His disposition matched his countenance and manner, it being kindly and charitable. It may be truly said that he was a good man, who will be greatly missed from the community of which he was so long been a useful and honored citizen.
