|Death: ||Jul. 25, 1879|
From The Weekly Arizona Miner (Prescott, Arizona), Friday Evening, July 18, 1879:
"Mrs. H. C. Casey of this village, a young married lady, who took a severe cold about the middle of last December has been unwell ever since from its effects, and now the disease has become so deeply seated in her lungs that her husband and friends are greatly alarmed at her condition and fear she can not recover. They had almost entirely given her case up as hopeless last week, but within the last few days she has rallied so as to sit up and converse. May she continue to improve until she is restored to health is the earnest wish of a host of friends of her husband, who is well and favorably known throughout the county, as well as of herself and family."
From The Weekly Arizona Miner (Prescott, Arizona), Friday Evening, August 1, 1879:
"CASEY. -- In Prescott, July 25th, of consumption, Mrs. H C. Casey, in her 22nd year."
From the Weekly Journal Miner (Prescott, Arizona), Friday, August 1, 1879:
Two funerals in Prescott in one day is of such unusual occurrence that it was the subject of general remark yesterday, and cast a general gloom over the village, especially among the more permanent residents of the place, who were acquainted with the departed.
In the afternoon similar services were held over the remains of Mrs H. C. Casey at the residence of J. G. Witey, on McCormick street, after which the Independent Order of Odd Fellows took charge, and repaired to the Odd Fellows Cemetery, followed by a large concourse of sympathizing friends and neighbors of the deceased. Here appropriate services were had at the grave and all that is mortal of one cut off in the prime of early womanhood was laid beneath the earth away from human sight for ever."
