    Rest of obit reads:
    Miss Katherine Connor
    One of the oldest residents of Evanston has gone to her final reward in the person of Miss Katherine Connor who died Saturday afternoon at the home of her nephew, Mr. Thomas E. Connor, 1217 Oak avenue, with whom she has resided for the past ten years. Old age was the cause of death.
    She was born in County Wexford, Ireland, in 1803, and came to this country with her brothers in 1855. For twenty-five years she made her home with her twin brother, Thomas Connor, at the corner of Lake street and Ridge avenue, now occupied by Mr. M. M. Kirkman's residence. After his death she went to live with her nephew, Thomas E. Connor.
    A devout Catholic and an intensely domestic woman, she devoted her whole life to the family affairs of her nephews and nieces. She was a women of wonderful vigor, never having used glasses in her life and being able to thread a needle and sew up to the time of her death. She always insisted on cooking her own meals, and did so to the day of her death. When her time came she lay down on her bed and quietly breathed her last, the machinery worn out and her life's work ended. In bodily vigor, in mental strength and in moral worth she excelled, and was a worthy representative of these virtues for which the Connor family have been noted for years.
    Her brother, Mr. James Connor, survives her, with numerous nephews and nieces and grandnephews and grandnieces.
    The funeral occured Monday from St. Mary's church, and was conducted by Rev. Father Smyth. The interment was at Calvary and the pallbearers were James H. Connor, E. F. (I think this should be E. P.) Connor, nephews, Charles J. Connor, W. F. Connor, Frank Sullivan and Peter Sullivan, grandnephews.1,3,5
  • Burial*: Her body was interred on 3 May 1897 at Evanston, Cook County, Illinois, USA, at Calvary Cemetery.1
  • Blog*: She was mentioned in a blog at http://connorcolfour.blogspot.com Connor/Sullivan Genealogy Blog

    Lucy Connor
    Last Sabbath evening God called to his home little Lucy Connor, the second youngest child of Mrs. J. C. Connor. For two months she bravely struggled against disease, and everything was done to restore her, but neither the physician's skill nor a mother's constant care could bring back the bright eye or rosy cheek. She died of an affliction of the brain brought on by the grip. There is a peculiar sadness in her death inasmuch as it recalls to the memories of the bereaved family the loss of a devoted husband and loving father last November. This makes the afflication a double one and harder to endure. The stricken mother and remaining children have the most heartfelt sympathy of the whole community. The funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock in St. Mary's Church. Assistant pastor Father P. C. Conway conducted the ceremonies. The remains were interred at Calvary.
