" --The death of Dennis Buggy, of Pilot Grove township, occurred at the home of his son, Richard Buggy, last Thursday night between the hours of 11 and 12 o’clock, having been sick but a few days. He would have been 85 years of age the 11th of next June had he lived. Deceased was born in Killkenny [sic] county, Ireland, June 11, 1830. When about 18 years of age he came to America, first settling in Connecticutt [sic]. He enlisted in the war of the rebellion at the start of the war, when 32 years of age, and after its close moved to Faribault county, Minn., taking up a homestead where he has since resided—an even fifty years, being the last of the old homesteaders who still resided in the township of Pilot Grove. He was bothered with asthma some but his mind had been clear up to the time of his death, which came peacefully, with seemingly no pain. The funeral was held at the Catholic church here last Saturday morning, and the remains were laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery here."
