Elkader Register & Argus, Thur., 20 Feb. 1913.
John Liston, of 197 1/2 Locust street, Dubuque, was found dead in bed at 6 o'clock Tuesday morning. The deceased was taken ill Sunday but his condition was not considered serious, hence his sudden death came unexpectedly and caused great shock to his friends.
Mr. Liston was born in Clayton county about fifty years ago, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Liston. For the past fifteen years he has lived in Dubuque and during that time had been employed by the Martin-Strelau Co, and the Myers Tobacco factory. He was a faithful workman and was well liked by all who knew him. He was a member of St. Raphael's court, C.O.F., the A.O.H. and the Holy Name society of the Cathedral.
Two sisters, Mary and Nellie Liston, with whom he made his home, survive him, together with many more distant relatives and friends.
The funeral services of John Liston were held Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock at St. Raphael's Cathedral in Dubuque. Rev. Father Kerper celebrated requiem mass and preached the funeral sermon, during the course of which he paid fine tribute to the deceased.
The remains were brought to Elkader last evening and taken to the home of Mrs. Celia Keleher, Mr. Liston having been a half-brother of her husband, the late Henry Keleher. The interment was in the Garnavillo cemetery to-day.
