LeMars Globe, John Donahoe of LeMars received a telegram on Wednesday apprising him of the death of his brother, Thomas Donahoe, which occurred at Deadwood, S. D., on Tuesday. The dispatch did not give the cause of his death and his relatives here did not know the cause. The remains were brought back on Friday night and the funeral was held in Cherokee on Saturday morning from the Catholic church and the remains were interred beside those of his father and brother who died several years ago.

Deceased was a single man thirty years of age and had been employed in one of the mining mills at Deadwood. He was born at Galena, III., and when two years old went to Cherokee with his parents to reside and lived there until he was fifteen years of age. The family moved to Remsen about fifteen years ago and he resided there until he moved to Deadwood.

He is survived by his mother, Mrs. Anna Donahoe of Remsen, three sisters and two brothers. The sisters are Mrs. Maggie Carrington, who resides at Mt. Vernon, S. D., Miss Minnie Donahoe, a teacher in the public schools of Chicago, and Miss Anna Donahoe of Remsen. The brothers are John Donahoe of LeMars and Ed Donahoe of Merrill.

The bereaved family have the sympathy of all in this their great loss. Ed Donahoe of Merrill received information on Friday that his brother had succumbed to an attack of pneumonia after a sickness of only five days.
