From The Austin Democrat, May 25, 1897:

Death of Mrs. Maggie McGuire.

Death last night claimed another of Austin's aged citizens, Mrs. Maggie McGuire. She was nearly 79 years old and had been suffering for some time before the end came.

Mrs. McGuire was born in Claire county, Ireland, June 8, 1818, and came to the United States in the year 1836. She was married to Martin McGuire in 1838 in New York state. The family moved from New York state, where the two sons Patrick and John were born, to Ohio, the birthplace of Martin, Jr.; from there to New Port, Ky., the birthplace of W. H. McGuire, who now resides here. From Kentucky the family emigrated to Iowa in 1875, where Mr. McGuire died. The two sons took their mother to Lime Springs, from where, in 1893, her son W. H. took her to this city to take up her residence with him.

Only two sons are left to mourn her loss. they have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.

The funeral will be held at St. Augustine's church, Monday morning at 10 o'clock. The remains will be interred at Cresco Catholic Cemetery where her husband is buried.
