Dr. J. H. McGaffigan, aged 62 years and 2 months, succumbed to hypostatic pneumonia at his home, 518 North Twenty-fourth street, last evening about 5 o'clock. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Ella Kennedy McGaffigan, and five children, Mrs. Charles Inman, Misses Olive and Josephine McGaffigan, Mathew and Paul McGaffigan. Funeral services will be conducted at St. Elizabeth's church tomorrow morning at 7 o'clock, after which the body will be sent to his old home, Carlyle, Ill., for burial. Walsh has charge.

The deceased was born in Brooklyn, N. Y., in January, 1849, and removed to Illinois with his parents when 4 years old. He went to the public schools and after graduating began teaching. On November 3, 1871, he was married to Miss Ella Kennedy in Carlyle. In 1891 he removed to East St Louis and began the practice of medicine. He was well and favorably known to all the older residents here. He was taken ill about three weeks ago and it was not supposed that his ailment was of a serious nature. His death was a great surprise to his many friends.
