Obituary Notices. Group 2.

These death notices extracted from the local newspapers in this case mostly the PPL (The Philadelphia Public Ledger) are but a few examples of probably the first information that an extended family would have of the death of a loved relative in the war.This was an era of slow communication and newspapers and their content was of major importance for the circulation of information. Even as now over 140 years later when one looks at the names and indeed the ages of the young men named one wonder what if only? who were their families? how soon would their relatives back in Ireland (in the case of Irishmen) get to know about the loss?. Not all the now famous "Letters from Amerikay" always brought good news. So many questions so few answers.

SERGT. PATRICK K NOONAN Co. G 69th Pa.

The familiar form of Paddy Noonan will be seen no more on our streets. He was taken sick the day after Christmas. His illness soon developed into pneumonia of a malignant type and he died on the evening of Sunday last [2nd]. Patrick Noonan was an uncle of the well known Judge Noonan of the St. Louis Court of Criminal Correction. He had lived here several years, working most of the time for Mr J. F. Hawks. He had been a soldier in the Union army and was a member of the G.A.R. As soon as his comrades heard of his illness he was taken charge of and removed to Grand Army headquarters, where he was tenderly cared for by the members of Ransom Post until he passed away. He was buried by his associates of the G.A.R. according to the rites of that order in the cemetery north of Old Town.

Courtesy of the Arizona Champion [Flagstaff], Sat.Jan. 8th 1887.

G.A.R. At the regular meeting of the Grand Army held on Saturday evening last the new officers were installed. Among other business the following resolutions were passed: Whereas, Our esteemed brother, Patrick Noonan, has been mustered out from the living members of our order, Therefore be it Resolved, That we, members of Ransom Post, G.A.R., unanimously express our profound grief at the decease of our worthy comrade and that this resolution be entered on the minutes of our proceedings.
