Birth: Jan. 6, 1839, Ireland
Death: Jul. 1, 1915
Lyon County

The Northern Star
Admire, Lyon Co., KS
Thursday, July 8, 1915

Thomas Conlin died at his home north of Bushong last Friday and his body was buried in the Agnes City Cemetery Sunday afternoon.

He was seventy nine years of age and had lived in northern Lyon Co., about forty years. He and his sons formerly farmed in the summer time and mined coal at Scranton in the winter.

Mr. Conlin was a kind man and an excellent neighbor and during the long period of poverty and droughts in Lyon Co., he and his family were always ready to lend a helping hand. He was a great lover of baseball and some of his sons were the best players Kansas ever produced.

The Catholic priest from Council Grove preached the funeral sermon at the home and one of the longest processions that ever assembled in that neighborhood followed the body to the cemetery where his six sturdy sons acting as pall bearers conveyed the casket to the open grave.

The departed is survived by a helpless widow, one married daughter, and six sons, Billy, Luke, Patrick, Thomas, John and Jimmy. One daughter Mrs. Michael O'Hara died about twelve or fourteen years ago.
