James Maney Stricken With Paralysis
He died At Holmdel on Tuesday Night and Was Buried on Thursday-A Mishap While Returning From the Funeral
James Maney of Holmdel was found helpless by the roadside near Garrett Wyckoff’s about five o’clock
on Tuesday afternoon of last week. He had been to the village and was on his way home when he was
stricken with paralysis. He was carried to Mr. Burns’s home near by, where he died during the night.
Mr. Maney was about seventy years old. He was a native of New York and served with a regiment from
that place in the civil war. A number of years ago he bought a house and a few acres of land near
Gideon & Daly’s race track at Holmdel and had since lived there. Of late years he had lived alone.
He received a pension from the government sufficient to keep him. He leaves one son, John Maney of
The funeral was held on Thursday from the Catholic church at Bradevelt and the body was buried in
the church cemetery.
John Maney met with an accident at Holmdel while returning from the funeral. He had a horse and
buggy from Atkins & Conk’s stables at Red Bank. When he left Holmdel for Red Bank James Dugan and
another man were with him. Maney was driving at a reckless pace and in going down the hill near
William C. Ely’s he collided with a farm wagon driven by H. P. Hayward of Marlboro. Mr. Haywood
pulled almost out of the road but he could not get out of Maney’s way. The buggy was broken but
its occupants escaped unhurt. The wagon was taken to the Holmdel wheelwright shop for repairs.
Maney stayed at Holmdel over night. The horse was sent home with a Red Banker who happened by at
the time of the accident.
