HEALY (WILLIAM5, NATHANIEL4, JOSHUA3, NATHANIEL2, WILLIAM1)240 was
born December 26, 1792 in Dudley, Worcester Co., Massachusetts241 Christened:
October 05, 1800, Dudley, Worcester Co., Massachusetts243, and died May
14, 1850 in Moscow, Iowa. He married TRIPHENA KIDDER February 02, 1817,
daughter of JEDEDIAH KIDDER and CHLOE FOSTER. She was born October 03,
1791 in Wardsborough, Vermont, and died July 07, 1861 in Moscow, Iowa. She was a
descendant of James Kidder of England; of Cambridge, Mass. 1649, and later
Ipswich. Daniel Lyon Healy was born on the Deacon William Healy homestead
in Dudley where he lived as a boy. When a young man he taught school in Dudley.
After his marriage he kept the Old Black Horse Tavern in the village, which was
directly opposite the Conant Memorial Church. Stages made the Tavern their
stopping place, which, with its ballroom, was a feature of Dudley social
life. It was originally called The Black Tavern for the very good reason that
its color was black. Its owner, with Yankee shrewdness, had discovered that
black paint wore longer than any other color. He made several changes
after giving up the Tavern, and in the spring of 1838 prepared to move his
family of seven growing boys and one girl to Cedar County, Muscatine, Iowa on
the Mississippi River, which was a considerable task before the days of
railroads. From Southbridge, Mass., they went to Providence, R.I. and from there
to New York City by boat; up the Hudson River to Albany; thence through the Erie
Canal to Buffalo; on to Cincinnati; down the Chio River and up the Mississippi
to Muscatine, where the household goods and personal belongings they managed to
take with them were moved by team to their new home.

and he remembered many incidents of their trip. He related one, how the stove
pipe to the cook's galley on the canal boat was knocked out of position
when the cook was busy getting a meal. Evidently he had been reaching for a fork
when it happened. He caught the hot pipe in his hands and kept shifting it
from one hand to the other like a hot potato, loudly calling for help, saying:
"Somebody give me a fork, give me a fork, for the Lord's sake won't
someone give me a fork."
