DENNIS C. MALONEY.
Dennis C. Maloney died at his home in this city Sunday evening after an illness which had continued for several weeks and which in the later stage had been recognized as necessarily fatal. He was born in County Clare, Ireland, September 25, 1849, and died at Nevada, Iowa, December 7, 1913 aged 61 years, 2 months and 12 days. He emigrated to the United States ass a young man and after a couple of years in New York state he located at Blairstown, Iowa, whence he came to Nevada about 1870 and here he had ever since had his home. For a good many years he was in the employ of the Northwestern railroad but for the past twenty years of more h head been looking after his own interests. He was married first in June, 1870, to Catherine Ryan, and by her he had five children of whom Misses Mary and Catherine survive and one son, John, attained an age of 16 years. Mrs. Maloney died in June, 1883, and on April 10, 1885, he was again married, his bride being Elizabeth O'Donnell of Colo, who with the two daughters before noted survives him. Mr. Maloney had served at various times on the town and city council and had been recognized uniformly as a representative and public spirited citizen. His death is widely and profoundly regretted.
