McMonagle, Timothy M. (13 SEP 1848 - 8 MAR 1917)

After an illness of several months Timothy M. McMonagle died at his home in this city (Colby, Wis.), Thursday evening, March 8, 1917. The news of his death, which had been hourly expected for several days, was received with expressions of profound sorrow by the people of this community. He has always been held in the highest esteem by all who knew him and his genial, sunny personality will be greatly missed. A more honest upright man than Tim McMonagle never lived.

His suffering started several months ago and physicians diagnosed the case as cancer of the stomach. About a month ago he consulted specialists at Milwaukee, but was given no encouragement.

Timothy M. McMonagle was born at Adjelo, Canada, Sept. 13, 1848, and moved to Fond du Lac, Wis, when a boy. He was united in marriage with Miss Mary Sweeney, Sept. 23, 1873, and they came to Colby in February 1880. He was a head sawyer and lumber grader of no mean ability and worked many years in the employ of such men as D. J. Thomas, A. H. booth and R. B. Salter, all of who appreciated hi ability and honesty.

Mr. McMonagle was the father of six children, Belle, John William, Anna, Frances and Emma, who with his faithful wife survive him, with the exception of William, who died about twenty years ago. One sister, Mrs. Mary Jordan of St. Paul, is also left to mourn his death.

The funeral was held from St. Mary's Church Monday morning, and was largely attended by relatives and friends and members of St. Killian's Court, C. O. F., of which he was a member. The remains were placed in the Colby St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery.

Relatives of the deceased, who were here to attend his funeral, were: Mrs. Margaret McGarry and Mrs. Egelhoff of Milwaukee, and Mrs. Rose Sweeney of Fond du Lac.
