Thursday November 10 1904

This community was startled and shocked Wednesday morning when a telephone message announced the death of Thomas Gilloughly at High Market. He had moved his family Nov 1 to the Patrick Murphy Farm, which he had leased for a year. Mr Gilloughly was well known throughout this section.

Tuesday he rode with a neighbor to the town house, where he cast his vote, and was in the best spirits and apparent good health.

Wednesday morning at an early hour, while repairing the pump, he fell and expired immediatley.

By his death his wife, who was Miss Mary Wetmore, is left with a family of seven small children. Mr Gilloughly was of jovial disposition, devoted to his family and a kind neighbor. His sudden death is calling forth sympathy from all.

He was a member of St Patricks Church. The funeral will be held Saturday at St Patricks Church, Highmarket, Rev T. J. OBrien officiating.
