Death of James Fagan of Washington Township.

DIED— At the family residence in Washington township, Jones county, James Fagan, one of the old settlers and highly respected citizens of that township.

Mr. Fagan was born in the county of Meath, Ireland, in the year 1814. Emigrated from his native land when 14 years old to New Brunswick, from thence to the United States, temporarily at Utica, and afterwards located at Syracuse, N. Y., where he married Rose Farley, who still survives him, and resided there for 30 years. In 1852 he came to Iowa and located in Washington township, Jones county, where he resided up to the day of his death. The deceased was noted for his kind and genial disposition and generous hospitality and was a Christian gentleman in every respect. There were born to him during his lifetime eleven children, seven of whom survive him, to-wit: Jas. F. and Hugh, who reside in Cascade, John J. and Thomas and Mrs. John Carrick of Washington township; Joseph, residing at Walkerville, Montana; and David D., at Portland, Oregon.

The funeral took place at St. Peter's church, Temple Hill on Tuesday morning and was largely attended, the Rev. E. O’Farrell, Rev. J. Kelly of Garryowen, and Rev. L. Roche of Cascade, officiating. Thus ends the life of a worthy citizen, a kind husband and an indulgent father.
