BRODERICK, Michael

DEATH OF MICHAEL BRODERICK - 
An Aged and Respected Citizen of Lonaconing Answers the Last Summons
One by one are the land marks of Allegany county passing from view; the pioneers of this now populated section ending the battle of life; shuffling off this mortal coil to sleep the sleep of death. Our people were surprised and pained on Monday morning to learn of the death of Michael Broderick, Sr., who had been a resident of Lonaconing for many years, and who was respected and held in high esteem, by all who knew him. Mr. Broderick was born in County Galway, Ireland and at the time of death was aged 78 years, and six months. He emigrated to America in 1843; settling in Baltimore, where he remained a few months; later being engaged in the construction of the Chesapeake and Ohio canal. Shortly after the completion of that waterway in 1850, he removed to Pompey Smash, (Vale Summit) where he engaged with the Percy, Ford & Armstrong Mining Company. He was stationed at the dump in Clarysville where he served in the capacity of manifest clerk. About the year 1855 work in this mine was abandoned, and he moved to Newburg, Preston county, W Va, at which place he purchased and resided on a farm. In the year 1875, Mr Broderick with his family took up his abode in Lonaconing where he has since resided. He entered the employ of the New Central Coal Company, which company was at that time operating the mine known as 'Big Vein." At this period the deceased had a thrilling experience while aboard a train of mine cars, which were descending the plain. Without a moments warning the haulage rope broke, precipitating the cars to the dump at an almost incredible speed, and throwing him to the ground in such a manner that his escape from instant death was miraculous. When he regain consciousness, which was hours after the accident, it was found that the strain on his eyes had been so great, resulting from the force of the fall, that they assumed an unnatural position, and one which an operation failed to remedy. In the year 1843 the deceased was married to Miss Bridget O'Hara, of Frostburg, who with seven children survives him. Mr Broderick was possessed of traits and qualities characteristic of a true gentleman, and his friends throughout Allegany county were many. He was a firm and consistent member of the Catholic church and died with the blessed assurances taught by his creed. The following named sons and daughters survive him: Messrs, John and Stephen of Lonaconing; Michael of Butte City, Montana; Lawrence of Corning, Ohio and three daughters, Mary Ellen, Bridget and Rose of Lonaconing. Three children, James Elizabeth and Mrs Benjamin Colburn dead. The funeral took place from his late residence on Church street, Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock, proceeding to St Mary's church, where funeral services were conducted by the pastor, Rev. T J Stanton. The remains were conveyed to Westernport on the 10:30 o'clock train. Interment being made in the Catholic cemetery at that place.
