The Ringgold Record, 1891
DEATH of JOHN TUNNEY.
John TUNNEY was born in Ireland, in the county of Meo. He was married to Bridget MORAN 35 years
ago. Four children were born to them, two boys and two girls. He departed this life December 31st,
1891, aged 68 years [and one day]. He leaves a family and very many friends to mourn their loss. As as old citizen
of Athens township, Ringgold county, Iowa, he was known by many and loved by all. Peace to his
ashes and rest to his soul. Be it therefore.
Resolved, That in the death of Brother John
TUNNEY, society loses one of its best citizens, and the church to which he belonged one of its
most faithful members.
Resolved, That Wm. McDONALD post No. 435, G.A.R., feel deeply
afflicted in the death of Comrade TUNNEY. He was a true friend to the flag and always had a good word
for the old soldiers. We sympathize with the family in this their great loss. And as the old
soldiers are being fast mustered out, we all hope to meet inthe grand army above and that when
the grand roll is called we will all be there.
John TUNNEY served as a Private from October 10, 1862 to July 19, 1865 with Company E of the 16th Iowa Infantry.
John's wife Bridget (MORAN) TUNNEY died at the age of 72 years on December 15, 1893 and
was interred beside her husband at Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton, Ringgold County, Iowa.
