    • Death of a Well-Known Citizen

      A well-known and respected resident of Galt passed away rather suddenly on Friday afternoon last in the person of Mr. Patrick J. Kelleher. During the day and preceding night Mr. Kelleher had not been as well as usual, but nothing serious was apprehended; but towards evening he grew rapidly worse, and about half past 4 o'clock sank calmly to his rest of paralysis of the heart.

      Mr. Kelleher was a very old citizen of Galt, having taken up his residence in the then hamlet in the year 1841 - forty three years ago. He was born in Milton, County Kerry, Ireland. When the family emigrated to America, his father and several brothers and sisters remained in New Brunswick, where for many years his father was engaged as a classical teacher, and where his brothers and sisters are still living. He married a few years after coming to Galt, and his widow and a family of five sons and four daughters are left to mourn his loss. Several members of the family have taken high honors in the educational world, and at the present time his eldest son, Mr. P. D. Kelleher, is Principal of Brantford Separate School, while his youngest daughter had just carried off her certificate as a teacher, and has been in attendance at the present term of the Model School in this town.

      Mr. Kelleher was a devoted adherent of the Catholic Church, and no trouble was too great for he or his family to take to advance its interest. At the funeral on Sunday afternoon - which was very largely attended, parties being present from Stratford, Bamberg, Waterloo, Elora, New York and other places - Rev. Father Maguire delivered an address in which he spoke in the highest terms of the deceased, and alluded with pride to his endeavors to foster and encourage in his children a love for education. Mr. Kelleher was 62 years of age at the time of his death, and his remains were interred in the Catholic Cemetery.
