Abraham Heitchue died at his home in this place Monday morning from paralyses at the age of sixty-two. Mr. Heitchue who was a carpenter, had been working at his trade at Bakerton, this county, until about nine weeks ago when he was forced to give up work and return to his home in this place where after a slight illness of about a week, he was stricken with a paralytic stroke. Since that time he had been confined to his bed and another stroke, quite recently, caused his death.
The deceased lived but a short time in Carrolltown but had spent practically his whole life in this place.
Besides his wife, whose maiden name was Mary Weible, Mr. Heitchue is survived by eight of the nine children which constituted the family: Celestine of Pittsburg; Bertha, wife of John Follmar of the Seventeenth Ward, Johnstown; Edward also of the Seventeenth Ward; Harry of Walnut Grove; Matthew of Gallitzin; Annie, wife of Daniel Thorp; Bertha A. and John, all of this place.
Funeral services were conducted in the Church of the Holy Name in this place on Wednesday morning by the pastor, Rev. Father Fox, who recently came from Huntingdon to take charge of the parish. Interment was made in the old Catholic cemetery which adjoins the church.
