Flaherty, John (13 DEC 1883 - 20 MAR 1907)
John Flaherty, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Flaherty, of this village was kicked by horse on Tuesday, March 19th, and died from his injuries on Wednesday, March 20, 1907. He was working in camp nine miles from Glidden when the accident occurred and was immediately driven to that place and from there taken to the St. Joseph's Hospital at Ashland where he passed away.
In his last letter home he wrote that he would be with them in a few days and eagerly looked forward to the day when his wish would be gratified and the parents, brother and sisters were rejoiced over the fact that their son and brother would be with them again, but when they received a message of his death it cast a gloom of sorrow over the entire household and community which will only cease with time.
His death has brought the bitter cup of sorrow to the lips of relatives and friends. His was a heart of gold. He was one of nature's noble men in its truest sense, brave, generous, manly. His was the soul of honor, and his friends and friendships were sacred to him. The subject of this simple memorial was born in this village (Loyal, Clark County, Wis.) and, at the time of his death, was twenty-three years, three months and seven days old.
To the broken hearted father, mother, four sisters and two brother who sit in sorrow where his footsteps shall never again echo, we extend our heartfelt sympathy.
The funeral services were held at the Catholic Church on Saturday morning at nine o'clock and the remains interred in the cemetery about one-half mile north of this village.
