'Pat" Cusick, Old Settler, Dies Tuesday
Long Illness is Fatal to Pioneer Who Came Here in 1892

Patrick (Pat) Cusick, widely known Sheridan county pioneer and former justice of the peace and county assessor, died at his home, 404 Sumner street, Tuesday noon, following a long illness. He was 68 years old.

Mr. Cusick first came to this region in 1892, the year the Burlington laid its rails into Sheridan, and had made his home here ever since. He settled first at Parkman, where he ran a general store and post office, then moved to Sheridan in 1901.

One of the earliest citizens of Whitewood, S.D., in the heart of the Black Hills, Mr. Cusick served twice as mayor of that city before he turned westward with his wife and family.

Upon moving to Sheridan, he entered the real estate and insurance business and was actively engaged in those lines until last fall when he was injured in an automobile accident on Main street. Mr. Cusick spent several weeks in the hospital following the accident and never completely recovered.

He had been in a serious condition at his home for several weeks, and two of his three children were at his side when he died.

Mr. Cusick served one term as county assessor a number of years ago, having been elected on a citizen's ticket, and was later elected justice of the peace. He held that office for nearly a decade.

In addition to his widow, Mrs. Ellen Cusick, he is survived by two sons and one daughter. The sons are Francis J. Cusick of El Paso, Texas, and Leo Cusick of Chicago, and the daughter is Miss Mabel Cusick of Sheridan.

The body is at Champion Funeral home pending completion of final arrangements.
