An Old Settler of Winnebago Co. Leaves
To Receive His Reward

COONEY - Robert Cooney, an old and respected citizen of this county, died at his home about four miles southeast of this place, in the town of Harrison, last Saturday morning, after a lingering illness, aged 66 years. He had been suffering from spinal troubles for several months, but was slowly recovering when he was taken with la grippe, which soon carried him away.

Deceased was a native of Ireland, and was one of the earliest settlers in this section. Since coming to this country he had accumulated considerable property, and was a man that commanded the respect of the entire community in which he lived.

Besides a widow he leaves three sons, Arthur, Oscar and Edward, and two daughters, Madams George and David Crowley all of this place. His father and mother, living in Ireland, also survive him.

Funeral services were held from the Bethel U.B. church on Tuesday at 11 o'clock, after which the remains were interred in the Bethel cemetery.
