THE WESTERN STAR, 30 October 1886
Obituary of WM. H. McQUIDDY
DIED SUDDENLY.

The Medicine Lodge "Index" gives the following true account of Mr. McQuiddy's sudden death in this city last Monday: "W. H. McQuiddy, assistant cashier of the Bank Of Comanche county, and well known in
Barber county, died suddenly, of heart disease, at Coldwater on Monday, the 25th inst. He had been complaining several days of rheumatic pains in the breast and shoulders, but he did not regard the ailment as serious. Monday morning he did not feel well enough to get up. His friend, John C. Thurman, a clerk in the same bank, went to his room to see him, and he apparently feeling better and expressed his intention of
getting up soon. Mr. Thurman turned to go out, when he heard his friend gasp, and, on looking around, saw him in the throes of death. He expired without uttering a word. His body was brought here yesterday by Mr.
Thurman and will be taken to new Albany, Ind., by Thurman today (Wednesday). Wm. H. McQuiddy, was born in New Albany, Indiana, 25 years ago, and his widowed mother and his two sisters reside there. He came to Barber county in 1885, and proved up a claim near Sharon. In August last he came to this city, and took a position in the First National bank, and three weeks later he was transferred to the bank at Coldwater, where he died. He was a young man of good promise, popular with every one, and his death is greatly deplored.
