Kearns, Patrick

The East Liverpool Tribune

Patrick Kearns, aged 76 years, died at 3 o'clock Thursday morning (Feb. 7, 1907) at the home of his son, Anthony Kearns in Sophia street, after a short illness of pneumonia.

Deceased was born in Ireland and was married in that country. He came to the United States in 1873 and located in Salineville, where he was employed in the coal mines for a number of years. Twelve years ago he removed to this city in different capacities. With his wife he has resided at the home of his son Anthony in Sophia street for a number of years.

Only a short time ago the dwelling in which the Kearns family resided was visited by fire and the building was destroyed. The members of the family escaped in their night clothing. They then took up their abode in a home in the rear of the lot which was also owned by Anthony Kearns.

Mrs. Kearns, the wife of the deceased, is also in very poor health and owing to the cramped quarters since the fire, the remains of the husband and father were removed to the home of Mrs. John Crowley, a daughter, in lower Broadway.

Mr. Kearns is survived by the following children all of whom are residents of this city: John, Anthony, and James Kearns, Mrs. John Crowley and Mrs. Bridget Nanski.

The funeral services will be held at 8:30 o'clock Saturday morning from St. Aloysius Catholic church. Interment will be in the Catholic cemetery.
