Unconscious At His Post
John J Hayes Was Stricken With Apoplexy and Died
John J Hayes, a night watchman in the stocking mill in Amoskeag, was found unconscious in the mill at 1 o’clock Monday morning and died at 9 o’clock. The cause of the death was an apoplectic shock. Mr. Hayes was as well as ever on Sunday. He attended church as usual at St. Patrick’s and went to his work, apparently in good health.
Mr. Hayes was formally one of the most popular men of the South End. He was a graduate of the old Park Street school, and Bryant & Stratton Business College, and years ago was a principal of a night school.
He was a native of England and was 54 years of age. He lived at 35 Front St., Amoskeag. Mrs. Hayes survives him, and other survivors are a son, Jeremiah Hayes; and a daughter, Jenny Hayes, both of this city.
