Sheboygan (WI) Press, Thurs, Feb 26, 1931
The remains of Charles McTaggert, who passed away suddenly at Rochester, Minn., arrived here Wednesday afternoon and were taken to the Hanchett Mortuary, where a brief funeral service will be held at 8:45 a.m. Saturday, followed by the regular and more impressive service at 9 a.m. at St. Clement's church. The Rev. J. E. Delaney will officiate and burial will be in the family lot at the South Side Catholic cemetery.
Deceased was born February 20, 1871, near the city of Plymouth, the son of Archibald and Ellen [(Brown)] McTaggert. For a number of years he was employed at different times at the Zschetzsche tannery, by George Schmidt and then by George Rietow, who had a grocery store on N. Eighth street. Twenty-five years ago he left Sheboygan and up to the time he was incapacitated had been employed by the D. M. & M. railroad company. At the time of his demise he was conductor and in about two years more would have been eligible for retirement with pension.
He had submitted to an operation at Rochester and apparently was on the road to recovery. He planned spending a convalescent period with his sister, Mrs. Carrie Collins of this city, and the latter was on her way to accompany him on the trip from Rochester to Sheboygan when he suddenly expired while seated in a chair at the hospital.
Charles McTaggert was well known and highly respected throughout this county, and he was particularly fond of and was beloved by his sisters and brothers. He and his sister, Mrs. Collins, for some time past had planned many things for their future lives when he retired from the railroad service and his sudden and unexpected death is a severe blow to Mrs. Collins.
During his lifetime, deceased was a member of Lodge No. 1022 B.P.O.E. of Hibbing, Minn., and also the Brotherhood of Railway Conductors. A delegation of the last named organization will be present at the funeral services.
The near surviving relatives are two sisters, Mrs. Carrie Collins and Mrs. Fred [(Elizabeth)] Head of this city, and two brothers, John McTaggert of California, and Edward, who arrived here this week. The mother passed away February 24, 1930, and Charles was here to attend the funeral.
