# Event: THE PRESS, Newspaper, IOWA Obit. of Lawrence Hagarty~1912
# Note:

"Last week we told of the sickness of Mr. Lawrence Hagarty. Now we are called upon to the chronicle of his death. Thus one by one the old pioneers are called to their reward and vigorous healthy bodies which they developed when struggling with the hardships of former days are giving way to the conquering of old age. Though their sturdy bodies may at last fail, it seems that their sturdiness of character continues and even seems to intensify, for the years of eternal living. While walking home from dinner on last Wednesday, his heart weakened and was given assistance to get himself into the home of his daughter, Mrs. Dr. Nevins, who lives in the Dr. Nevin's hospital building. For two days, he fought with death, but the valves of his heart could not revive him. He passed away at noon on Friday, October 11, 1912.

Lawrence Hagarty was born June 22, 1832 in Dublin, Ireland, so he was 88 years of age last June. He came to New York City with his mother(piece of newspaper His family came to Butler County and settled on the land south of Coldwater and west of Shell Rock river. That was nearly 15 years before Green was thought of and at a time when people drove to Cedar Falls to do their trading. His sister, Eliza, had her piano hauled from Dubuque. While he lived in St. Louis, he met U. S. Grant many times and knew him before he became general. His parents, one sister, MRs. Maria Hagarty Nettleton, and three brothers, James H., Pat H., and Tom are all dead now an dhis only living sister is Miss Eliza Hagarty. He was married in January, 1868 to Anna Doyle at Butler Center. Nine children came to them, three of whom died at an early age: Agnes, at three months, Louis at one year, and Adrian at 11 years. The living children are: Mrs bessie Nevins, of Greene, Sister Mary Agnes of Dubuque, P.J. Hagarty of Maquoketa. Lon, Thomas and Agatha Hagarty of Greene. All were at the funeral excepting Sister Agnes Hagarty and P.J. Hagarty-the latter being sick with typhoid fever. Mr. Lawrence Hagarty's wife died Jan. 29, 1908 in Greene. They retired from the farm in 1902 and made their home here afterwards. The funeral was held at St. Mary's Church, on Sunday morning Oct. 13, 1912. with Father Sheechy conducting the mass. Burial was beside his wife in the Coldwater cemetery four miles south of Greene and only two miles from his old homestead: Six nephews were pall bearerers: Tony and Bert Hagarty, Felix and Frank Nettleton, T.J. O' Brien, and A. J. McMahon.

Among the relatives and friends from out of town were; Mrs. Nannie Gibson, a niece from Davenport; Mrs. Uphremia Crosby of Collins, a sister in law; Mrs Kate McGee of Allison, a sister in law: Lamber McGee, of Allison; Miss Kate Wyth, of Cedar Falls and Messrs John & Albert Heery of Clarksville. The eulogy given Mr. Lawrence Hagarty at the funeral services was very correct in its estimation of his character and emphasized the traits all his friends have seen in him. He had strong convictions of the right and followed them faithfully. He was charitable with a free hand. He was religious and followed closely the teachings of his church. He was well-informed and could discuss intelligently all questions of public interest. He was temperate and gave a noble example for others to follow. THE PRESS joins the many friends in extending sympathy to the bereaved ones.."
