SPOUSE: Mary Delaney
Mr. Elijah Headley died at his home in Perry township, this county [Greene Co., PA], Saturday May 23, 1885; aged about 65 years.
Mr. Headley was a man always highly respected, whom everybody liked, and by his death, his many friends and acquaintance will meet with a severe loss. But few lives would compare with his for uprightness and honor. He had been a consistent member of the M. E. church for many years and died a faithful Christian. His death removes the last of a family of several boys all of whom lived to be useful and successful men. The sorrowing friends have the sympathy of the community.
