JAMES P. MULVEY (1876 - 1901)

Although not entirely unexpected at any time for months past, the news received here Tuesday night that James Mulvey had passed away at Butternut Lake at 6:30 o'clock on the evening of that day came as a sad blow to his mother, brother and sister, and to his many warm friends in Loyal and vicinity.

Jim, as he was familiarly known to everybody here, had spent several weeks at Butternut Lake earlier in the season, and he was so delighted with the place and had seemed to enjoy himself so well that a few days ago he and Ed Fahey had gone up again.

Tuesday evening Jim was out on the lake fishing, only three or four rods, while Ed was on shore getting supper. At that time Jim said he was not feeling well and Ed went to him at once. As he reached the boat Jim said goodbye to him, evidently realizing that he had reached the end. He was taken to the shore and laid down where he passed peacefully away within five or six minutes of the time of calling Ed. A hemorrhage of the lungs was the immediate cause of his death.

James P. Mulvey, the subject of this article, was born at Hingham, Sheboygan county, Wis., on January 31, 1876, where he resided with his parents the first seven years of his life, coming to Loyal with the family eighteen years ago where he had since remained except while away at school and one year spent in Arizona for his health.

He was a graduate of the School of Pharmacy of the Northwestern university at Evanston, Ill., and has had a position in H. S. Mulvey's drug store since his graduation. He had many friends who admired him for his genial, pleasant ways and his manliness on all occasions. As he appeared to you today, so you would find him next week or next year. In his death his friends lose a pleasant companion, a staunch friend, an upright man, and his death will be universally regretted.

He had been an invalid for more than four years, but was a patient sufferer, no complaint ever having escaped him.

There remain surviving him, his mother, one brother, H. S., and one sister, Mrs. A. A. Graves all residents of this village.--Loyal Chronicle.
