Cresco - For a human being to live in three centuries is not a common occurrence. But such was the unusual discovery made at Calvary Cemetery at Cresco recently by members of the Cresco Monument Company. They found a plain marble slab bearing the inscription: "Grandpa, 1799-1901".
The deceased referred to was John Dargan, born in Ireland in 1799 and died in April 1901. It is believed to be the only case of its kind in Iowa and perhaps in the whole northwest.
******
He was married to Catherine Brady (some family databases have Hannah), and they were the parents of eight: Mary, Bridget, Margaret, Michael, Kate, Ann, William, and John E. Dargan, Jr.
