OBITUARY
Taps For War Veteran 
John J. Fagan Died Suddenly of Pneumonia at State Hospital, Iowa City, Saturday 
John J. Fagan, pioneer settler, farmer and civil war veteran died from an attack 
of pneumonia at the Iowa State Hospital in Iowa City at 11:30 Saturday morning, 
October 29th. Mr. Fagan had gone to Iowa City for treatment but returned home 
about the first of October. On the 12th he again returned to the hospital there 
and about ten days before his death had submitted to an operation, and was 
apparently coming through the ordeal successfully when pneumonia developed on 
Monday. Members of the family were had been summoned to his bedside and were 
with him when the end came. His death was a great surprise to his many friends 
who were unprepared for the announcement of his death although many knew he had 
been taking treatment and had paid visits to Marshalltown in August and later in 
to Iowa City. 


John J. Fagan was a son of James and Rose Fagan, the third child of a family of 

eleven children, and was born at Salina, New York, June 4, 1843, and was 
therefore, 78 years of age. He came to Iowa with his parents in 1852 and settled 
in Washington township, Jones county, where he grew up on a farm. When he had 
reached the age of 19 years the Civil war had been raging between the north and 
south for two years. He determined to enlist, and with other men from Cascade 
and vicinity he enrolled in Company I, 21th Iowa Infantry on August 22, 1862. He 
took part in all the campaigns of that regiment including the siege of 
Vicksburg, Black River, Mission Ridge and other notable battles. He came through 
the war without injury and was honorably discharged on July 15, 1895, after 
nearly three years of service. He returned to Cascade and engage in farming. On 
November 22, 1870, he was married to Mary Jane Flanigan, who preceded him in 
January 2, 1907. Shortly after his marriage he removed to a farm near Anamosa, 
living there until 1883, when he returned to Washington township and purchased 
the present farm from G. G. Banghart, and where he lived up to the time of his 
death. 



Mr. Fagan was a familiar figure in Cascade for many years, and will be missed 

his old friends and associates. He was a stalwart man and the remarkable way he 
sustained the burden of years, until his last illness was frequently commented 
on. He was a genial and kind-hearted man, beloved by his children, and highly 
respected by his neighbors and friends. As a member of the G. A. R., he took an 
active interest in all of its functions from the time of its organization to the 
closing days of his life. 



Some years ago, with his comrade, P. L. Devaney, he revisited Vicksburg, where 

so many eventful days of his military career were spent and the last encampment 
he attended was this summer in Waterloo.



Mr. Fagan was a member of the Catholic church and he died fortified by its 

sacraments, and in full possession of the faith of his forebears. 
The deceased is survived by the following children: Katherine, wife of James 
Gavin, of Washington township; Angeline, wife of W. J. Kehoe, of Coggon; W. B. 
Fagan, of Washington township; James Edward Fagan, of Sioux City. His eldest 
daughter, Mary, (Mrs. P. J. McLean) died in January 1920. His surviving brother, 
Thomas D. Fagan, of Cascade, is the last of a family of eleven children. 



The remains of Mr. Fagan were brought to Cascade Saturday night and taken to the 

old homestead, one mile south of Cascade, and Monday morning, October 31, the 
funeral was held from the residence to St. Martin's Church. Although a soaking 
rain from Saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon had made the roads heavy with 
mud, the attendance at the funeral was unusually large. 



Almost the entire membership of Cascade Post No. 528, American Legion, including 

the firing squad, was present in uniform, and assisted the surviving members of 
the, G. A. R. in the last sad rites and tribute to their departed comrade.. 
The funeral services at St. Martin's Church were conducted by Rev. L. Roche who 
also officiated at the graveside in the Catholic cemetery. The firing salute was 
given and taps from the buglers, closed the earthly career of a gallant soldier 
and most worthy citizen, who had lived to the ripe age of more than three score 
and ten, which Holy Writ prescribes as the allotted time of man.



The casket was borne by the following ex-service men of the world war: Joe Drew, 

Frank Fagan, Joe Fagan, Ben Dunn, Charles Livermore, Charles Kean, Leslie Moore 
and George McLees. 



All of the surviving children were present at the funeral, including a 

grand-daughter, Miss Monica McLean, daughter of P. J. McLean, of Sioux City. The 
following friends from Anamosa were present: Maurice and Miss Agnes Fay, Mrs. 
William Fogarty, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Lavey and son, and Mrs. Julia Boyle, of 
Sioux City.

JAMES F. FAGAN
Wellknown and Popular Citizen Answers Death Summons



The death of James F. Fagan, who passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. F. Crawford, Wednesday night, December 15 at 9 o’clock, removed one of the pioneer settlers of Jones and Dubuque counties, and one who was widely known and popular among all classes, and among young and old.



Mr. Fagan's illness dated from the early part of the year while working at his trade as a harness maker for W. A. Rohnkohl in Dyersville. Growing weakness compelled him to quit work and he returned to Cascade the first of June. Never having been seriously ill in his life time he resisted the feeling and the thought of being inactive and went back to Dyersville but in a few weeks was again obliged to give up his work. During the summer months he steadily declined and he realized that the sands of life were running down, but he cheerfully submitted to the inevitable and constantly, fortified by an indomitable religious philosophy he prepared himself for the finale. When the end came he went into the shadow calmly, mentally alert, peacefully, and without pain, as a child passes into slumberland.



James F. Fagan was a son of James Fagan and Rose Farley, natives of county Meath, Ireland. He was born in Syracuse, New York, September 7, 1845, and in 1852 came to Iowa with his parents who settled in Washington township, Jones county, and his early boyhood was spent upon the farm with all the hardships attending pioneer farming. He often referred to hauling cordwood to Cascade with an ox team when quite a small boy, but withal declared it a happy and contented period, that the conditions were endured without much complaint.



At the age of eighteen he decided to learn a trade instead of continuing on the farm and accordingly about the year 1863 he entered the harness and saddlery shop of Hugh Devlin in Cascade and altogether worked for Mr. Devlin for ten or eleven years. On January 10, 1870, he was married to Miss Annie Schmidt, daughter of Mrs. Frances Schmidt, of Cascade, the ceremony being performed, at St. Martin's church by the Rev. Michael Lynch.



In 1876 he started in the harness making business for himself and continued until 1899. In 1893 he received the appointment of postmaster of Cascade from President Cleveland and served a full four years term. Since retiring from the harness business in 1890, he worked at his trade for William Altmann in Monticello, and for a short time at Prairieburg and Ryan, but for the greater part of the time for W. A. Rohnkohl in Dyersville, Cascade and Farley. Mr. Fagan was a master workman at his trade and his products gave great satisfaction to a wide trading area here and wherever he was employed.



As a citizen Mr. Fagan always took a deep interest in public affairs. He was one of the original councilmen of the town of Cascade and helped form the initial local municipal government. Ho was an ardent democrat and unswerving in his political belief and views. He was an omnivorous reader. He had an excellent memory of events in general and local history. He was an ardent member of the Catholic church, and in the early days of the church rendered yeoman service, but was generous and liberal in his consideration of the creeds and views of his neighbors and friends in their belief. He was the soul of geniality and had a smile and a word of good cheer for every acquaintance, both young and old. He cared nothing for wealth and smilingly acknowledged his indifference to the accumulation of it, but the absence of it never marred the even temper of his disposition.



His great sorrow came to him when death removed his beloved wife, whose death occurred on February 3, 1904, and the family circle was broken, and during the intervening years he but waited the time for that glorious reunion which his faith gave assurance, would be theirs, and so the strong man laid down his burden with calm and implicit confidence in the promise of eternal life and we who knew him, likewise feel confident that he is entitled to the full justice of heaven.



To his marriage union, were born nine children: Bertie and Charles, who died in infancy; Frances, wife of C. D. Baldwin, Cascade; Herman, of Dubuque; William F., of Butte, Mont.; Alfred, and Rose, wife of C. F. Crawford, of Cascade; Frederick, of Monticello; and Miss Inez G. Fagan, of Cascade. His surviving brothers are John J., of, Washington township, Jones county; Joseph B., of Butte; Thomas D., of Cascade, and David D. Fagan, of Seattle, Washington. One brother, William, died during the civil war; and two sisters, Mrs. John Garrity and Mrs. John Carrick, died many years ago, and another brother, Hugh Fagan, died in September, 1913. He is also survived by six grandchildren.



The funeral: services were held on Friday morning at 10 o'clock at St. Martin's church, Requiem High Mass being celebrated by the Rev. L. Roche, who in his sermon referred to the genial character and sterling Catholicy of the deceased, after which the remains were laid beside those of his wife in the Catholic burial ground.



Mr. Fagan had been a charter member of St. Martin’s branch of the R. C. M. P. Society, and that branch with St. Aloysius' branch of St. Mary's parish, attended the funeral in a body as a tribute of respect to the old and faithful member of the society.



The pall-bearers were J. P. Lane, P. L. Devaney, B. F. Crawford, T. H. McQuillen, H. L. Dehner, and Jacob Loes.
