End Come to J. Brosnahan Died At His Home Tuesday Evening, at 10:10 O'clock. Illness of Pneumonia and Chronic Stomach Trouble Funeral at Catholic Church Thursday. John Brosnahan, after an illness of several weeks, of chronic stomach trouble, and a complication of pneumonia, passed away Tuesday evening, Feb. 1, at his home on West Thirteenth street, breathing his last beat at 10:10 o'clock. He had been unconscious for about 24 hours before his death. And knowing that he could not recover, before he fell into a state of coma, being a devout Catholic, he received the last rites of his church, administered by Rev. Father Fitzgerald.

The funeral took place at the Catholic church in this city, at 10 a.m. Thursday, and burial was made in the consecrated ground of the city cemetery, Rev. Fitzgerald officiating.

John Brosnahan was born in County Kerry, Ireland, March 24, 1834. When about 15 years of age he emigrated with his parents consisted of five sons and two daughters. He was married to Margaret Deleney, January 8, 1860, and of this union six children were born, five sons and one daughter. In 1888 the family came to Sherman county, Kansas, and settled near Kanorado. Several years ago, on account of advancing age, he moved to Goodland where he built a comfortable home, and where he has since resided. He leaves a wife, somewhat his senior in age, and feeble, two sons residing near Boulder, Colo., and two living near Kanorado, and one daughter, Mrs. Daise, also living at Kanorado. One son died some six years ago of cancer. Mr. Brosnahan was an excellent citizen, a kind husband and father, and a devout believer in Jesus, the Savior, and the reality of the life to come. And so he passed to the reward awaiting the faithful, and the rest of the people of God.

"And so He giveth his beloved sleep."
