McLeod Dead

His Wife Was Formerly a Keyport Girl

Donald W. McLeod, a summer resident of Highland Park, near Atlantic Highlands, died at New York a few days ago. Mr. McLeod had been sick a long time and no one was allowed to see him. His brother claimed that he was being kept a prisoner in his home by his wife and Mrs. McLeod was brought up in court to show cause why her husbands relatives should not be allowed to see him. Mr. McLeod made affidavit that he was not being kept from his relatives against his will and that ended the suit. Mr. McLeod was a large stockholder in the new pier at Atlantic Highlands. For a long time other members of the pier company have been trying to hold the annual meeting, but without success.

Mrs. McLeod is a daughter of the late Captain William Bush, who ran a sloop from Keyport to New York for a number of years. One of his boats was the Hattie Bush, which was named after Mrs. McLeod. Mr. McLeod left a large estate and his widow is well provided for in his will.
