|Birth: ||Jan. 30, 1875|
|Death: ||Sep. 1, 1900|
Thomas Frances McCarty, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael McCarty, died at the home of his parents, two miles east of Walnut, Saturday morning, September 1, after a continued illness of nearly four months with consumption.
He was born on the farm where he died on January 30, 1875 and was at the time of his death 25 years, 7 months and 1 day of age.
By far the greater part of his life was spent in Walnut and vicinity. A graduate of the public schools at the age of 17, and was one of those quiet studious young men who make friends wherever they go. For the past four years he has been taking a law course at the State University, in Iowa City, and would have graduated with the class of 1900-1 had he been able to continue his studies.
He was a boy of exemplar habits; free from every evidence of vice and coarseness; kind and generous to friend and foe; an earnest conscientious member of the Catholic Church, believing in exemplifying the teaching of "peace" and good will toward all men.
Funeral services were held at St. Patrick's Church Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock by Rev. Father Morrin, followed by a short service as the body was lowered into the grave and silently covered from the sight of those who had known and admired him during the greater part of his short life.
