200 OMAHA MEMORIES
P. C. Heafey was born in County Kerry, Ireland, in 1857.
Came to the United States and to Omaha in 1878. His first
employment was as a laborer at the Union Pacific local freight house in Omaha. He was soon promoted to receiving clerk, which position he held until 1885, when he resigned to enter the undertaking business with P. J. Barrett, which firm was known as Barrett & Heafey and located at 216 South Fourteenth Street.
This partnership lasted but two years, Mr. Barrett retiring from the firm, which was soon afterward known as Heafey & Heafey, P. C. and Morgan Heafey, brothers. This partnership is still in existence and doing business at Twenty-sixth and Farnam Streets.
Mr. Heafey served as a member of the fire and police board from 1898 to 1901, was elected county coroner in 1910, serving two years. He is now, and for more than ten years past has been, a member of the governor's staff. He was elected a member of the Omaha water board in 1912, and is still serving in that capacity; is a member of a number of fraternal organizations and is very popular, as he has a happy faculty of making and keeping friends, is charitably disposed and donates much for that purpose. He was a loyal friend and companion of the late Count Creighton.
I have a very warm spot in my heart for Mr. Heafey, as he and I worked together as receiving clerks for the Union Pacific for two years, he acting as one of the two "best men" at my wedding. He is yet in the prime of life and carries with him that smile that never comes off. May he live long. Mr. Heafey is married, but has no children."
