Leo CALLAHAN Dies Suddenly
Leo CALLAHAN, a young man and a son of Dennis CALLAHAN, died at the CALLAHAN home just east of Hahnaman station Saturday morning about 9 o'clock after a short severe attack of pneumonia. He was picking corn last week Wednesday and was taken sick that night. Thursday he complained of pain in his side which rapidly developed into a bad case of pneumonia causing his lungs to fill up very quickly. Funeral services were held Monday morning at 10 o'clock at St. Mary's church here the services in charge of Father L.X. DuFOUR and interment was in the family lot in St. Mary's cemetery. The church was completely filled with the concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends.
Leo CALLAHAN was born July 18, 1893 at Ida Grove, Iowa, and moved to Tampico with his parents when quite young. He was but twenty-two years of age at his death and was a splendid, industrious young man spoken of very highly by his many friends who deeply regret that the Grim Destroyer has cut down early manhood with all its bright prospects.
The broken hearted parents, four sisters and two brothers survive. They are Julie, Kathyrn, Hazel, Mary, Edward and James.
