Death of Mrs. Brody
Sept. 27, 1917
Ida Grove Record
George C. Brody received a telegram last Friday from Patrick Brody of Pomona, Calif., to the effect that Mr. Brody's mother had died that morning, and that Brody would arrive in Ida Grove with the remains Thursday, September 27th.
The Brodys were among the early settlers of Ida County and for many years lived on a farm five or six miles northwest of Ida Grove, afterward moving to town. Mr. Brody died here and about twelve years ago Mrs. Brody and her son Patrick, moved to Pomona, which has since been their home.
No definite arrangements have been made for the funeral, but it will very likely be held from the Catholic church Thursday or Friday.
The Oct. 3, 1917 issue of The Ida County Pioneer stated:
"Funeral of Mrs. Brody"
The funeral of the late Mrs. Brody was held at the Catholic church last Friday and the remains laid to rest in the cemetery here. Her death took place Sept. 21 at Pomona, CA. where she made her home with her only child, Patrick Brody.
Winifred Vaughan was born in Ireland in 1828 and therefore was 89 years of age at her death. She came to America in 1851, having been married to Flann Brody in 1847.
They located first in Columbia City, N Y and in 1878 came to Ida county, occupying a nice farm northwest of Ida Grove. In 1891, they moved into Ida Grove and somewhat later went to California.
