McCARTY, Cornelius M.
Cornelius Milford McCarty died June 4, 1912. A good parent, noble Christian, and southern gentleman. When we say he will be missed it hardly expresses it, for his Christian friends say: "He was a good man and full of the Holy Ghost," while in secular life Romney has lost a good citizen. Brother McCarty was born at Kernstown, Va; April 1st, 1846, the son of Joseph and Mary Sticker McCarty, later they moved to Winchester, Va. As a Confederate veteran he was captured and sent as a prisoner to Ft. McHenry, near Baltimore. In the year 1869 in the month of June he married Miss Mary C. Brown of near Charlottesville, Va. In the fall of 1877 he moved to Romney where he has since resided engaging in business as a merchant, contractor and builder. He leaves a wife and three daughters, also two brothers, James McCarty of
Philadelphia, and Charles of Winchester, Va. Brother McCarty was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South of Romney, and his decease is its loss-but heaven's gain

McDADE, Larry

For a drink of whiskey three men were killed on the 20 inst. at Dodson, this county. Two shot to death and the third, with his body slashed almot [sic] to ribbons, died a few minutes after he had fired the fatal shots. Larry McDade, 38 years old, a miner, was sitting near the railroad tracks drinking from a bottle, when two Italians demanded a drink. McDade refused them. Drawing stilettos, the foreigners attaced [sic] McDade, who, after being slashed with the keen blades, finally managed to draw his revolver. He sent a bullet through the heart of one
of the Italians, but then his weapon regfused [sic] to work, and the remaining Italian struck him in the throat with his stiletto. Using the body of the dead Italian as a shield, McDade continued the fight. Both men fell to the ground, and McDade's revolver, striking a stone, was again in working order. He fired at the Italian, who dropped dead. The wound in McDade's neck was fatal, and he fell to the ground, where some miners found him. He had not yet lost consciousness, and related the story of the fight, dying shortly afterward.

McGEADY, John P.

Midland, Md., Jan. 3 Funeral of John P. McGeady.
The funeral of John P. McGeady, who died Monday evening, took place from his late residence on Church street Wednesday morning. The funeral cortege proceeded to St. Joseph's Catholic Church, of which he was a devoted member, where a requiem high mass was celebrated for the repose of his soul. After the mass Rev. J. J. Quinn, the pastor, paid a high tribute to the merits of the deceased. His high character, rigid honesty and fervid religious principles, followed by timely suggestions on the need of always being prepared for death being his theme. In the sancutary with Father Quinn Rev. J. J. Brady, of Meyersdale, Pa., and Rev. J. P. Nolan, of St. Mary's, Lonaconing, who knew and loved Mr. McGeady from their childhood. Mr. McGeady was one of the best known and most esteemed citizens of this community. An ardent lover of his adopted country, a favorite expression was "that as long as we adhered to the provisions of the Constitution we could not go wrong." He considered it one of the greatest—if not the greatest—of all human documents and was thoroughly versed in all its details. He was also a strenuous believer, upholder of the doctrine of complete Independence for Ireland—his native country. Broad minded and liberal in his views, charitable in all things, a good citizen and ardent Christian, he will be sorely missed, not only by his aged life partner and immediate family; but by his host of friends throughout the county. The funeral proceeded after mass by automobile to Lonaconing, where the interment was made in the family lot in St. Mary's cemetery. The pallbearers were: John McMahon, Peter Ennis, Thomas McGraw, William Monohan, John Murphy and Jas P Stakem.
