Giles Lahue

Old Soldier Pass Away at His Home in Garrison

Garrison Independent: After an illness covering a period of about a year, Giles Lahue was called to eternity last Friday, Sept. 26, 1902. The dread disease consumption had gripped its victim and never gave up until death had marked its victory.

Mr. Lahue was not the strongest of men. He entered the union army and for three years rendered his services toward whipping the rebels, when had to get a discharge on account of sickness. From that time until his death he had never enjoyed the best of health but not until about one year ago did he take seriously sick. He was a carpenter by trade and followed that occupation for a livelihood.

Giles Lahue was born in Monroe county, Ohio, June 26, 1840; died Sept. 26, 1902, at his home in Garrison, Iowa, 62 years and 3 months old. He was married to Isabelle Milligan in 1860, to whom one daughter and four sons were born. The mother died Aug. 28, 1868. The father was again married in 1870 to Mrs. Margaret Rucker McBride. To this union one daughter and nine sons were born. Mr. Lahue with his second wife, moved to Benton county, Iowa in 1880, which place has since been his home. He was a member of the M. E. church, having united with that organization back in Ohio.

The funeral services were held in the M. E. church on Sunday, Sept. 28, at 10:300 a.m., conducted by Rev. W. H. Long. The burial took place in the Garrison cemetery. The family left mourn the loss of a husband and father have the sympathy of the whole community.
