Patrick Casey, Democrat and Enquirer, Dover NH, Friday, June 24, 1904, a weekly paper which included: Somersworth News, Monday, June 20, 1904

Patrick Casey passed away at his home on South Street Saturday night after a brief illness. Last Monday he was taken ill and had to quit work at the Littlefield morocco factory. He came home and a physician was summoned and on examination he found that he had appendicitis. He was sent to the hospital at Dover where he was operated on. The operation was successful but in addition to having appendicitis, it was found that he had cancer of the stomach which left him in a weakened condition. Saturday he was taken to his home here and he gradually sank until the end came during the evening. Mr. Casey was a good citizen in the fullest meaning of the word. He was hard working and industrious and a good neighbor. He was ever ready to help the needy and he consequently made many friends who are extremely sorry to hear of his death, and they extend condolence to his wife and family in their bereavement. He was 52 years of age. A widow, four sons, John, Thomas, James, M. G., and a daughter Katie survive him. He was a member of Division 5, A. O. H., and always worked hard for the success of the order. The funeral will be held at Holy Trinity church tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock.
