Born 25 May 1844
|After a long illness and my months confined to his bed, Patrick Kenny died at the family residence in East Cascade early Wednesday morning, September 30th.
Patrick Kenny was the oldest son of the late Squire Michael Kenny of Washington township, Jones county. He was born in Ballyglass, county Galway, Ireland, May 25, 1844. At the age of six years he came to New York city with his parents where they remained for two years and then removed to St Louis, later to Galena, Illinois, remaining there a short time and then settled in Washington township, where deceased lived continuously on the farm until last March when with his brother and sisters removed to Cascade. Mr. Kenny was a man of the highest type of Christian character and his life was a devotion to the best principles in his dealings with mankind. He reflected deeply in his religious thought and was a most devout member of the Catholic church in whose sacraments he was sustained throughout his lifetime.
Mr. Kenny is survived by the following members of his immediate family, his sisters Mrs. Emily Cunningham, and Miss Agnes Kenny, his brother George D Kenny, and his niece Miss Dela Cox.
The funeral services will be held at St. Martin's church, leaving the house at 9 o'clock Friday morning, and burial will take place at the cemetery at St. Peter's church at Temple Hill.
