Obituaries - NJ - 1902 - Mrs. Hannah Chasey
Mrs. Hannah Catherine Chasey died on Friday at the home of her son, Levis Chasey of Leighton avenue. She was 79 years old. During the mad dog scare last summer Mrs. Chasey was bitten on the hand by a dog. The wound was cauterized by Dr. Rafferty and it was not considered serious. About a month ago Mrs. Chasey complained of cramps in her hand and since then she had worried considerably, fearing hydrophobia. On Wednesday night she was seized with convulsions, and these continued until Friday, when she became unconscious. She suffered greatly with symptoms of hydrophobia, but the doctor thought her death was due to a complication of diseases, aggravated by the dog bite and the worriment (sic) that it brought.
Mrs. Chasey was a native of New York but had lived at Red Bank the greater part of her life. Three children survive her, Mrs. Elizabeth VanBrunt of Long Branch, and Henry and Levis Chasey of Red Bank. The funeral was held on Monday at the house and was conducted by Rev. Clarence M. Johnston. The body was buried at West Long Branch.
