Thomas Cantwell Expires Suddenly

Thomas C. Cantwell, proprietor of the Cantwell feed barn, Braasch avenue and Third street, and whose residence is at 202 North Eighth street, died from heart failure at Creighton early Saturday evening. The remains were brought to Norfolk by Mrs. Cantwell, who was called to Creighton Saturday morning. Mr. Cantwell had gone to Creighton about a week ago on business, and while there suffered a shock several days ago. He had been laid up at the home of friends and was to have come home Saturday when overtaken by the fatal shock.

T. C. Cantwell was born in Granville, New York, April 27, 1854. His death came at 5:45 Saturday evening. He leaves a wife, three daughters and two sons. Two daughters live in Norfolk and one lives at Ord. A brother lives at Greeley, Neb., and there are two brothers and two sisters in New York. Mr. and Mrs. Cantwell were married October 13, 1880, at Clarksville, Neb., and settled at Silver Creek, Neb.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock in the Church of the Sacred Heart and burial will be in Prospect Hill cemetery. This will be the first burial in the new section of the cemetery set apart for members of this church. Mr. Cantwell had lived in Norfolk four years. The children who survive are: Alice, Nellie, Jean, Lynn and Harmon. Mr. Cantwell was a member of the Ancient Order of United Workmen, the Ben Hur and Knights of Columbus.
