Pioneer of Eddy County Called to Unknown Shore Last Friday Afternoon
Edward Walsh Answers Call of Angel of Death After Lingering Illness of a Year
ONE OF THE EARLIEST SETTLERS OF COUNTY
Funeral Services Held at St. John's Church Yesterday at Ten O'Clock A.M.
Edward Walsh, one of the early pioneers of Eddy county, died at his home in this city Friday afternoon at half past five, of an apoplectic strocke having been afflicted with two bad strockes about a year ago, and from which his health has been failing ever since.
The funeral services were conducted at St. John's Catholic church in this city yesterday morning at ten o'clock, a large concourse of the sorrowing relatives and friends of the deceased attending the last sad rites.
Edward Walsh, familiarly called "Ned" by the large circle of acquaintances he had, was born near Quebec on July 9th, fifty-seven years ago and came to North Dakota in 1886. For many years he resided out in the Tiffany community but for the past three years he and his famly have made their home in New Rockford. He leaves to mourn his death his wife, four daughters, the Misses Mary, Edith and Veronica of this city, and Mrs. Harry Dawson, of Seattle, Washington; two sons, Joseph and Edward, Jr., three brothers, Martin and Stephen, who reside in this county, and Andrew, whose home is in Great Falls, Montana, and a sister, Mrs. Margaret McAvoy, of Lndsey Ontario.
"Ned" was every inch a man; cheerful in prosperity and adversity; a good neighbor and a splendid citizen. During the many years he has resided in Eddy County he has become known to practically every resident of the county, and universal regret will be felt by all in his passng away. To the sorrowing wife and children the sincere sympathy of the entire community goes out in the loss of a kind and indulgent husband and a loving and thoughtful father.
The funeral seromn was preached by Father Carrol and the remains laid to rest in Calvary cemetery north of this city.
