Edward Ryan, of Linn township, died Aug. 27, of paralysis, from which he had been suffering for more than a year past. He was an old settler, coming to this county in ’59.

He was an Irishman and immigrated from Ireland to America in ’44 stopping a few years in Boston, where he married in Aug. ’49, and shortly after moved to Wisconsin, whence he came to Iowa settling in this county. Here he sustained the usual hardships of a pioneer, and by frugal industry accumulated a fair share of worldly goods. He had a family of twelve children, nine of whom are still living.

He was a faithful and honored member of the Catholic church, a respected and useful citizen, and though he had passed his “three score years and ten,” before he was stricken with paralysis he was even then still actively engaged in the affairs of life. He had held various township offices for many years, and was frequently called on to fill places of trust and responsibility, which he always did with credit to himself and to the satisfaction of those interested.

He died on Saturday and was buried Monday in the Catholic cemetery at St. Patrick’s. The funeral was very large being attended by almost the entire community.

Transcriber's note: Typed as printed in the newspaper. Gravestone at St. Patrick's says Edmund Ryan.
