Wieneke officiating. Burial will be in the cemetery at Dike, where his wife was buried seven years ago. The deceased was born in Ireland, Aug. 15, 1829, and is survived by four children, two sons and two daughters. They are William and James, both of whom live near Emmetsburg, but arrived here last week; Mrs. Murphy of Grundy county and Miss Belle Degnan, who has lived at home and cared for her father in his declining years. For many years Mr. Degnan was a prosperous farmer, but he retired about twelve years ago and came to Cedar Falls to make his home.
