William P. Cady

Rutland Daily Herald, Dec. 28, 1901:

William P. Cady of No. 69 Church street, manager of the Boston Clothing house, died suddenly of heart failure about 10.45 o'clock last evening while on his way home from the lecture at the opera house.

Mr. Cady had been unusually well this winter and had remarked several times to his wife that he had not been so well in 10 years as he was this winter. He attended to his business as usual yesterday and went to the lecture at the opera house last evening.

While going through Elm street on his way home he was taken suddenly ill with terrible pains around his heart and through his lungs. He became so faint that he was obliged to sit down. Miss Mattie Wheeler, with whom he was walking, succeeded after a while in getting him as far as her home on Kendall avenue, where he was gotten on to a bed. Mrs. Cady and Dr. E.I. Hall, Dr. James M. Hamilton and Dr. C.A. Gale were immediately sent for. When Mrs. Cady arrived a few minutes later her husband was unable to speak, although he seemed conscious. He was dead when the doctors arrived.

Mr. Cady was born in Woodstock about 62 years ago and during his life had been in business in Windsor, Saratoga, N.Y., Minneapolis, Minn., and in this city at two different times. He was married at Minneapolis in 1880 and moved from there to this city in 1890 and had been in the clothing business ever since. At the time of his death he was manager of the Boston Clothing house. He was a member of Roberts post, No. 14, Grand Army of the Republic.

Besides his wife, Mr. Cady is survived by a son, Leverett Cady of this city, and two brothers, Hermon Cady of Westminster and F.C. Cady of Minneapolis.
