Daniel T. Flaherty, aged 54 years, a well-known early day settler of Hennessey, passed away at the family home on North Cheyenne avenue, at 6:30 o'clock Saturday evening, Nov. 9.
He was taken ill with influenza a week preceding his death, pneumonia afterwards developing. The announcement that the end had come, shocked old friends who [were] unaware of the seriousness of his condition.
Funeral services were held at the home by Rev. Elton Wilson, pastor of the Congregational church.
Interment was made in the Hennessey cemetery.
The deceased is survived by his wife and two sons and one daughter, John P.
Flaherty, in the aviation branch of the U. S. service in France; Daniel E.
Flaherty and Dorothy Kinney, of Hennessey, the latter a step-daughter, also two
brothers and one sister, residents of Wisconsin.
Daniel T. Flaherty was one of Oklahoma's pioneers. Before the "opening" he was in charge of the stage line between Pond Creek and Kingfisher. The year following the "opening" he located on a homestead four miles east and a half mile north of Hennessey, and a number of years later moved to the state of Washington and located on a farm he owned near Spokane. Eventually he returned to Oklahoma, where he has resided practically continuously until his death. Of late years he has conducted a grocery in his building on Main street. He was frugal and thrifty in his habits and leaves an estate valued at several thousand dollars.
