Death in Our Midst

The Ravages of Death Again Experienced in our Beautiful Village - Funeral of Father Carney.

Reverend Thomas Carney

          Reverend Thomas Carney, brother of Philip, Patrick and Michael Carney and Mrs. James Finnerty of Frankfort, died at his home in Plattsmouth Neb., July 2, aged 54. Father Carney was born in Ireland, and at the age of 20 came to this country and to Ilion. He lived in Ilion with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Carney, for a number of years. He was graduated from Niagara college in 1881. He was ordained to the priesthood and was given a parish at Norfolk, Neb. He remained in charge of that parish for twenty two years, then went to Plattsmouth. He was taken ill last February and gradually failed. The last time Father Carney was in Ilion was three years ago, when he came to attend the funeral of his brother, Reverend Eugene Carney, who died at Cohoes while in charge of that parish. The remains arrived in this village Sunday and services were held from the Church of Annunciation at 10:30 o'clock Monday morning, largely attended by sorrowing friends and relates. The Reverend Father J. V. Quinn, rector of the church was celebrant of the mass and the Reverend Father Hyland of Troy was deacon; the Reverend Father Kiveny of Cohoes was sub-deacon and the Reverend Father White of Little Falls was master of ceremonies, Miss Katyhryn Quinn presided at the organ. William J. Lewis sang "Calvary" very feeling and Christopher Mackin sang "O Salutaris" at the conclusion of the service. Benedictus was rendered by all the priests. The floral offerings consisted of many beautiful set pieces. The priests present from out of town were the Reverend Father Hyland of Troy, the Reverend Father Keveny of Cohoes, the Reverend Father O'Connor of St. Johnsville, the Reverend Father Toolan of Newport, the Reverend Father White of Little Falls, the Reverend Father Halpin of Herkimer, the Reverend Father Wallace of Frankfort, the Reverend Father Riley of Schenectady, the Reverend Father Dolan of New York and the Reverend Father Dolan of Johnstown. The bearers were Richard Carney, Peter Carney, Michael Carney, John Carney, Benard Carney and James Carney.Interment was made in St. Agnes's Cemetery.
