Two Deaths In the Keough Family at Red Bank
John Keough, Who Had Been a resident of Red Bank for Fifty Years, Dies of Paralysis - His Son Thomas Dies of consumption
Two deaths occurred last week in the family of John Keough of Wall street. On Wednesday a son, Thomas H. A. Keough died of consumption and on Saturday, the day of his son's funeral, Mr. Keough died of paralysis.
Thomas Keough was 31 years old and was a printer by occupation. He learned his trade in the Standard office and about twelve years ago he went to New York to work. Several years ago his health began to fail and he gave up his position in New York. Since then he had lived at home. His funeral was held on Saturday morning at ten o'clock at St. James's church and was conducted by Rev. James A. Reynolds. The bearers were L. J. Ryan, Harry Leddy, Williom(sic) Johnson, William and Frank Riley and John Henderson. The body was buried at Mr. Olivet cemetery.
John Keough was 73 years old. He was stricken with paralysis a week before his death. He was struck by a trolley car a year ago and he had not been well since that time. He was born in Ireland but for the past fifty years had lived at Red Bank. For a number of years he was employed on the packet boats that plied between Red Bank and New York. In later years he had been engaged in well digging. His wife died nine years ago. Fifteen children were born to the couple, three of whom died in infancy. The surviving children are Dr. John W. Keough of Toluca, Illinois; Joseph G. of San Francisco, James E. of Brooklyn, and Mrs. William H. Dugan, Josephine, Lillie, George W., Aloysius and Eugene Keough of Red Bank. The funeral was held yesterday at ten o'clock and the body was buried at Mr. Olivet cemetery. The bearers were John Connors and Peter Mulvihill of Fair Haven, Thomas Tyndall of the Rumson road, and James Dugan, Nicholas Murphy and Matthew Hollywood, Sr., of Red Bank.
