New Jersey Obituaries - 1899 - John J. Mulligan

John J. Mulligan of Atlantic Highlands died last Saturday, aged 32 years. Death was due to a general collapse produced by overwork. His health first failed him about two months ago, at which time, on the advice of his physician, he went south. Two weeks ago he returned home, but there was no change for the better in his condition. He was able to be around a little each day but could keep no food on his stomach. Friday afternoon he was down to his place of business. Saturday morning he had a hemorrhage of the stomach and sank gradually until he died.

Mr. Mulligan was engaged in the plumbing business and was one of the most enterprising citizens of Atlantic Highlands. He was active in the board of trade and was a generous contributor to every public enterprise. Previous to his removal to Atlantic Highlands six years ago he lived at Long Branch, where he had been employed by Bazley & Burns. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus of Long Branch and of the Grand View hose company of Atlantic Highlands. He leaves a wife and six children. The oldest child is nine years old. He leaves also a father and several brothers and sisters at New Brunswick.

The funeral was held on Tuesday at ten o’clock at St. Agnes church and was conducted by Rev. T. A. Roche. The Grand View hose company attended the funeral. The body was buried in the cemetery at Headden’s Corner.
