HILLEARY, Hon Charles

Hon. Charles Hilleary, a well known farmer, stock raiser, and financier, of Garrett County, Md., whose home was about three miles from Gorman, shot himself in a meadow near his home Friday August 18, 1911. Leaving the house at 11 o'clock, he informed members of the family that he wished to see if the hay was ready to be hauled into the barns. Not returning for dinner, search was made and he was found about a quarter of a mile from the house lying under the branches of a tree with a felt hat he had worn rolled up to form a pillow for his head. In his right hand he still held a 38-calibre revolver. He had evidently lain down and shot himself above the right ear, the bullet emerging above the left ear. Mr. Hilleary owned one of the largest and best farms in the county, was a director of several banks, a member of the Masons and Knights of Pythias and was prominent in Republican politics in Garrett County, having represented that county in the state legislature. Mr. Hilleary left a widow and four children. Mrs. Hilleary was Miss Thompson. His funeral, which was conducted by the Oakland Masonic Lodge, was held Sunday afternoon and the body was buried in the Thompson cemetery. Rev. Watson, of Keyser, preached the sermon. Mr. Hilleary was 51 years old. No reason is assigned for the rash act, as Mr. Hilleary was in good financial condition and had a happy home. He had many friends in Mineral County who are deeply grieved because of his sad and untimely death.

As a little girl she helped with candy and fancy work booths some of the funds needed for the construction of Emmanuel Episcopal Church on the site of Fort Cumberland. She remembered William Price, grandfather of Emily Post, who built the house on Washington St that is now the Lowndes House and who was a member of the Emmanuel parish. From the window of her room at Memorial Hospital where she had been a patient since November 7, 1945, Mrs Hitchcock could look across the city to the church whose centennial will be celebrated next year. Until she suffered a stroke on Sunday, Mrs Hitchcock would look towards the church as she prayed. From Sunday until her death at noon yesterday, the oldest resident of the Tri-State and one of the oldest in the United States was unconscious. Active in keeping her own home on Fayette Street until she was passed 102, Mrs Hitchcock first showed signs of feebleness after an attack of pneumonia in 1943, the year she entered Memorial Hospital. Her birthdays were real occasions until she was past 107. On her 107th birthday, August 3, 1950, there were flowers and refreshments with relatives and close friends present in her hospital room. Her picture was taken by the Evening and Sunday Times photographer, the last ever made of her. There was no observance of her 108th and 109th birthdays because of her steadily worsenng condition. The late President Franklin D Roosevelt wrote Mrs. Hitchcock a personal letter on the occasion of her hundredth birthday which she observed with much energy, greeting more than 100 callers and reading innumerable greetings and letters. Her last visit to the polls was in November 1944 when, at the age of 101, she voted for Roosevelt. Mrs. Hitchcock remembered the celebration here in 1850 to mark the opening of the C & O Canal. She was already 18 years old when the Civil War started, and recalled many incidents, of that conflict between the states. Born August 3, 1843 in a log cabin at the head of Mechanic Street, she was a daughter of the late John L. and Sarah E. (McKee) Humbird. Her father served four terms as mayor of Cumberland. Her husband, the late Luke D. Hitchcock, died approximately 70 years ago. Survivors include a granddaughter, Mrs. Eleanor (Charles) Johnston, city; two nieces, Mrs. Lydia Sturtevant, city; Mrs. Walter Swartzwelder, McKeesport, Pa.; a nephew. William DeVries, LaVale; two great-grandsons, Charles and William Johnston, city, and numerous great nieces and nephews. So, tomorrow at 2 p.m. in the church she saw built nearly a century ago, the last rites will be conducted by the Rev. H. Maunsell Richardson for Mrs. Lydia Humbird Hitchcock whose life spanned more than half of Cumberland's 200 years of history. Interment will be in Rose Hill Cemetery. The body is at Stein's Funeral Home. — J.W.H.
