DANIEL CAVANAGH NOVEMBER 12, 1925
Daniel Cavanaugh died at his home in Pontiac Saturday (Nov.7) night at 11:00 o'clock after a long illness. Funeral services were held in St. Mary's Catholic church in Pontiac on Tuesday morning, solemn high mass being sung by Rev. Father Cannon, of Pontiac, assisted by Rev. Father Hearn, of Chatsworth, and Rev. Father Hoghen, of Chenoa. Special music was furnished by the Loughran brothers. The body was brought to St. Patrick's cemetery near Chatsworth for burial. The pall bearers were Thomas Dillon, Daniel Whalen and John Flanagan, of Flanagen; Michael Franey, of Chatsworth; James Kane and Robert Gorman, of Pontiac. He was united in marriage at Flanagan, Illinois, to Elizabeth Cullen, which union was blest by nine children. He and his family resided in the vicinity of Flanagan about twenty years, moving thence to a farm near Chatsworth, later moving to Pontiac. He was a devout member of the Catholic church, a staunch citizen and a fond parent, a man of sterling worth whose outstanding qualities are familiarly know to a legion of friend. He is the last member of a family of eight whom with their parents all in God's good time have gone before. He leaves by his death the following sons and daughters to mourn his loss; Edward, Emmett and Charles Cavanagh, and Mrs. W.P. Brady, of Chatsworth; Misses Nellie, Rose and Teresa Cavanagh, of Pontiac. His wife and a daughter, Miss Ester, preceded him in death a short time ago. Also a daughter, Claire, who died in infancy.
