From the "Republican" April 23, 1899|
Harmony, Minn., April 21. - John Daly, an old and highly respected farmer living about six miles south of this city, was found dead in the garden near his residence about noon Wednesday. His son, who was at work in the field, not seeing his father around when he came home for dinner went to the garden where the old gentelman was supposed to be at work, and was horrified to find his fathers lifeless body on the ground. The cause of his death was supposed to be heart failure. He was about 60 years of age and had always enjoyed fairly good health.
