JOHN O’GRADY MEETS DEATH
Died in Hospital Following Cold Contracted in Church.
John O’Grady, aged 48 years, died Sunday morning (December 31, 1911)at the East Liverpool hospital. Death was due to crysipilas and glandular throat trouble. He was in his usual health until a few days ago, when he contracted a severe cold, which settled in the glands of the throat.
For treatment for this trouble he entered the hospital. He had been a resident of Wellsville practically all his life. He was a member of the Catholic church. He was employed in the rolling mill for several years until the effects of rheumatism and an accident made him a cripple. Then he became a paper hanger. He contracted a cold which resulted in his death, in cleaning the church, following the Christmas entertainment.
He is survived by an aged mother, one sister, Mrs. John Thornton, of this city and two brothers, James and William, both of Wellsville.
Funeral services will be held Wednesday morning from the church of the Immaculate Conception, Rev. Father Crotty officiating. Burial will be made in St. Elizabeth cemetery.
