Thomas Hagerty

Thomas Hagerty, a pioneer of the country southwest of Wheeler and a native of Ireland, was buried today at Hobart, following services held there in the Catholic church. Mr. Hagerty died Monday at the home of his son, John Hagerty, residing in Hobart. He had suffered a long time from ill health, and last winter underwent an operation in a Chicago hospital to relieve a pressure on the brain that affected his mind. After that he made rapid improvement, in spite of his advanced age of over 80 years, but lately the tide turned.

Mr. Hagerty was known by nearly everyone around Wheeler and Hobart as "Uncle Tommy," and he was a familiar figure to many of the people here. For many years he hauled milk to the Wheeler stand with spirited horses, and met with several runaways during the time, but his strong constitution always brought him safely through the injuries sustained.

Albert Hagerty, or Hurlburt, this county, is a grandson of the deceased.
