HARRY LEYDE, POTTER, DIES IN BRIEF TIME.
Bursted Blood Vessel Causes Him To Succumb
HAD BEEN HAVING BEST OF HEALTH
Fatal Attack Came On As He Started To Reach Stairway
Following an illness of but a few minutes, Harry Leyde, aged 47, lifelong resident of East Liverpool, and a prominent potter, died yesterday morning (March 4, 1912) at 11:45 at his home, 727 East Spring street. Death was due to a ruptured blood vessel in the head. Previous to yesterday, Mr. Leyde had been in the best of health.
He had gotten up about 7:30 and at eight had eaten a hearty breakfast. He seemed to be in a healthy condition. About 11:30 he started to go upstairs to his room. He had just entered the room when he fell backward to the floor. He reached forward and grasped a chair and had partly regained his feet when he fell forward on his face.
The wife being near, rushed to his assistance. He was placed on a bed and the family doctor called. He expired, however, before his arrival. He was born in Allegheny, Pa., but had lived in east Liverpool nearly all his life. He was a presser by trade.
He is survived by his wife, Margaret Leyde, and three children, Miss Margaret, Raymond and Harry, all of whom reside at the home.
Funeral services will be held form the residence at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Rev. E. M. McMillin officiating. Interment will be made in Riverview cemetery. The remains may be viewed from 7 to 10 this evening.
