March 29, 1888
Edward Martin Flanagan, whose death was mentioned in last week's Leader was born in Mills County, November 11, 1808, (this must be a mistake, given age listed) and was a few days more than nineteen years and four months of age. Being of a studious mind he devoted himself too closely to his school duties, as the sequel proves, and his health gave way. His same thirst for knowledge induced him to return to work at Shenandoah College before he had fully recovered from an attack of sickness, although he was never able to resume his studies, being taken down almost immediately.
Prof. Croan, President of the faculty, who accompanied the body home, says Mr. Flanagan was a splendid student that had the friendship and good will of all his school companions, as well as the respect of his instructors. In his school duties, as in other matters, he was thorough and conscientious and exhibited an earnestness that was most commendable. Mr. Flanagan was also of a religious temperament and led such a life as might reasonably be looked for in one who rightly considered the responsibilities of life. His friends have the consolations of looking forward to a happy re-union, for he left evidences that he had not forgotten the important and was prepared to go.
The funeral occurred from the Presbyterian Church Thursday afternoon and the body was laid to rest in Liberty Church cemetery.
