Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - William Hathaway
William Hathaway, a pioneer resident of Deal and for the past two years mayor of the borough, died at that place on Sunday, aged 68 years. Death was due to paralysis, with which he was stricken two weeks before his death. Mr. Hathaway was born at Eatontown. In 1855 he bought the Thomas Borden place at Deal and established a summer hotel. As business increased he enlarged the hotel and in a short time his resort was famed throughout the country. Ten years ago Mr. Hathaway sold his hotel property to T. S. Darling for $175,000, the hotel now being known as Hathaway inn. Mr. Hathaway reserved a portion of the hotel plot and on this he built a cottage, which he occupied until his death. He was instrumental in organizing the borough of Deal and two years ago was elected mayor. In politics he was a Democrat and for many years he was a township committeeman of Ocean township. He leaves two sisters, Mrs. James Green and Mrs. Walter Green, both of Long Branch.
