Reference: Cascade Pioneer-Advertiser, November 1, 1878. Obituary
McCaffrey, At 11 o'clock Monday morning, Oct 21, of Purpural fever, Bridget A, wife of
O. McCaffrey,. age 25 years, 3 months and 28 days.
Mrs. McCaffrey has been a resident of Maquoketa a little over three years and during that
time had won a host of friends, by her retiring manner and kind disposition. Mr. McCaffrey
came here from Independence, and located with the intention of making this his permanent
home, and was arranging matter so that his wife should be comfortable, when death knock at
the door and called all that was dear to him on earth, to a home beyond the skies.
She was married at Cascade, Dec 9th, 1873, and nothing had ever crossed her pathway
through life to mar the happiness which she rightly deserved.
The house was crowded with friends as the last sad rites were performed, and as the teams
filed by escorting the inanimate form of Mrs. McCaffrey to Deep Creek cemetery, hardly a
dry eye could be seen.
Father O'Farrell, of Deep Creek Catholic Church officiated.
Mr. McCaffrey has the sympathy of a large circle of friends, Maquoketa Democrat.
