Pioneer citizen answers call
Patrick Vaughan is summoned after a long illness.
Prominent in mining circles Patrick Vaughan, aged sixty-two years, died
at the family residence 85 Rush Street, on Friday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock, after an illness of six months' duration. Mr. Vaughan was born in County Waterford, Ireland and had been a resident of this city for the past fifty
years. He was a boilermaker by trade and of late years had been mining.
He participated in a number of the leading strikes about here and was prominent in the mining circles. A man of genial personality, he made
many friends who sorrow over his passing. He was a member of the
Catholic church and died fortified with its rites. He is survived by his
children, Mrs. Frank Lonergan, of Dubuque, Albert and Thomas, of
Dubuque, and Joseph, of Houston Texas, who is on his way to the city to
attend the funeral. Mr. Vaughan was a member of the C.O.F. and of the Modern Woodmen. His wife preceded him to the grave eight years ago.
The funeral will be held at 8:50 o'clock on Monday morning from the residence, 85 Rush street, to St. Columbkill's church where the services
will be held at nine o'clock.
