Death of Another Centennarian
The Waverly Independent reports the death of Timothy Driscoll, aged 101 years, 9 months and 2 days, if the record is straight. He was born in the county of Cork, Ireland, June 21, 1802, and came to this country when he was 47 years old, or directly after the great famine. He has lived on his farm in Polk township, Bremer county, since 1809. Not until last year could he be persuaded to give up cultivating his little patch of “praties.”

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he is buried in Saint Marys Cemetery in Waverly and that he died March 23 1904.
