Mrs. Mary Hartnedy of Middletown Dies of Paralysis

Mrs. Mary Hartnedy died at her home between Middletown and New Monmouth on Tuesday of last week, aged 73 years. Death was caused by paralysis of the heart. Mrs. Hartnedy lived alone. Thomas Logan stopped at the house frequently with mail and when he knocked at the door Tuesday he got no response. He thought that something was wrong and he and Patrick Lang climbed in the window. They found Mrs. Hartnedy in bed. She was alive, but unconscious and died shortly afterward.

Mrs. Hartnedy was born in Ireland and came to Middletown township about fifty years ago. Her husband was Michael Hartnedy, who died about twenty years ago. She leaves four daughters and two sons. They are Mrs. Mamie Shields, Maggie Hartnedy and Michael Hartnedy of Red Bank, Mrs. Annie McLaughlin of Belford, Mrs. Lavinia Cheeseman of Jersey City and John Hartnedy of Atlantic Highlands. The funeral was held on Thursday at St. Mary's church of New Monmouth and the body was buried at Mt. Olivet cemetery at Headden's Corner.
