OLD RESIDENT LAID TO REST
C.F. GALARNEAUX BURIED IN THE CEMETERY HERE, DIED IN PORTLAND FRIDAY EVENING OF CEREBRAL SPINAL MENINGITIS, WAS WELL KNOWN
Charles Ferdinand Galarneaux, one of the oldest residents of this county died at Portland last Friday evening of cerebral spinal meningitis, and was laid to rest in the local cemetery Tuesday afternoon.
Mr. Galarneaux was a contractor and builder and had been in business on the coast for many years.
A few weeks ago he went to Ohio, Indiana and Illinois on a visit to his brothers and sisters who he had not seen in thirty years. After a very pleasant visit with them he started on his way back home leaving Chicago on July 29th in seemingly good health. He was taken sick on the train and arrived in Portland on August 5th and was at once taken to the hospital. The services of the most skilled physicians, however, could not save him and he passed over the river at 7 o'clock Friday evening.
The trouble which caused his death was the result of a fall which he sustained several years ago, and which caused abnormal condition of the brain tissues.
His remains were brought to this city Monday by his son, H.T. Galarneaux, and were taken to Whitlock undertaking parlors where they lay until 4 o'clock the next afternoon, when they were taken to the Catholic church, where the beautiful services of faith were performed by Rev. J.J. Cunnigham, S.J. From the church the remains were borne to the city cemetry, where they were laid to rest.
Charles Ferdinand Galarneaux was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada August 13, 1834. He married Eliza Ryan at Wakefield, Canada in 1861, came to the United States in 1862, settling in Indiana. In 1875 the couple came West, and after living in various cities on this coast settled in Klamath County in 1884, where he has been engaged as a contractor and builder until a short time before his death. Besides his widow he leaves five daughters and two sons to mourn his departure. They are Mrs. Stepehen Herlihy of Naylox, Mrs. Mary Matt, Mrs. John Matney, and Mrs. W.E. Folsom of this city, and Mrs. Ray Richardson of Merrill and M.P. Galarneaux of Merrrill and H.P. Galarneaux of this city, besides a number of grandchildren.
