Catherine Gannon Nolan (1830-1912)

Inkerman Woman Dead

On Saturday night death claimed one of Inkerman’s best known residents, Mrs. Catherine Nolan, death being due to general debility. Mrs. Nolan was the widow of Peter Nolan who died seven years ago. The family were among the early settlers in that place. The deceased received an injury two years ago which was the primary cause of her illness, and since then she had not enjoyed her usual good health. She was able to be about, however, until a few days ago.

She was a woman of fine character and always took much pleasure in assisting neighbors when in trouble or ill. Having lived nearly a half century in Inkerman she was well known by every family and all feel deeply grieved at her death. She was a devout Catholic and before St. Mark’s Church was erected in Inkerman she and her husband could be seen winding their way to Pittston to attend early mass in St. John’s Church.

The following children survive. Mrs. John Gill of Parsons. Michael, who lives at Wilkes-Barre and Matthew at home. One sister in Virginia and one sister in Ireland also survive. The funeral will be held on Wednesday morning with a solemn requiem mass in St. Mark’s Church, Inkerman, at 9 30 and interment in St. John’s Cemetery, Pittston.
