Obituary-Mrs. Catherine Hoy
The death of Mrs. Catherine Hoy occurred last
Friday night, Feb. 21, 1908 at the residence of her
daughter, Mrs. F. E. Peterkin, at Cedar Rapids, IA.
Mrs. Hoy was one of the most widely known old settlers
in this part of the country, and an authentic complete
record of her life would be very interesting to her many
acquaintances, but we are able to give it only in
The Hoys came here about 1865, homesteading a farm
1 1/2 miles this side of Hardy. There are quite
family of children, but they are scattered and the
whereabouts of all are not known. They are
Mrs. Ann McDonald at Algona, Andy at St. Mary's, Kansas,
Mrs. Kate Turner at Britt, Thomas, Mrs. Agnes Peterkin
at Cedar Rapids and Patrick at Livermore.
After about 10 years' residence on the old homestead,
Mr. Hoy disappeared, possibly returning to Ireland, and
it has never been definitely known whether he is alive or
dead. Mrs. Hoy then continued to run the place
help of her sons till about 20 years ago when she removed
to Livermore with her son, Patrick. Here she
until a few years ago, since which time she has been
living with her children at various places, and finally
with Mrs. Peterkin at Cedar Rapids where she died at the
age of 92 years.
Word was received that the funeral and burial would occur at Livermore last Wednesday, and the Catholic Church was
in readiness and the grave dug, but nothing further was heard until Thursday when a message said that it was decided to bury
her at St. Mary's, Kansas.
