NASEWAUPEE, May 7.—Died at her home in this town on Sunday morning, April 28th, Bridget Mulvihill, wife of John Mulvihill, aged 52 years. Deceased was born in the county Limerick, Ireland, and came to this country while still a girl, she being about nine years of age. Settling first in Pennsylvania, she kept house for her brothers, who were unmarried, her brother James being the only one grown to manhood. While still keeping house for her brothers, at the age of sixteen she was married to John Mulvihill. Remaining there two years after marriage, they removed to Branch, Manitowoc county, where they lived about three years and thirty years ago they removed to their present home, where they afterward resided. The fruits of their happy union were thirteen children, eleven of whom are still living.

Although three of her children are married the deceased had the consolation of seeing all of her children who are living around her death-bed on the night when she died. I think this was remarkable for such a large family. Deceased was well-known for her fidelity to religion, and for her readiness in responding to every charitable appeal. Mrs. Mulvihill died with resignation receiving the consolations of religion, and surrounded by her affectionate and sorrowing husband, and children. The requiem high mass was celebrated in the Forestville catholic church by the Rev. Father Cipin, of Ahnapee, from which place the interment took place, the funeral being one of the largest ever seen in Door County.

The friends she left they need not fret,
A good example she has set.
Which if they follow—bear in mind
They'll die in peace with all mankind.
May she rest in peace. A FRIEND.
The Independent Sturgeon Bay May 10, 1889
