William McGinnis 1899 obituary

William McGinnis was my paternal 3rd great-grandfather. He was born in Ireland and appears to have been living in the Central New York area as early as 1855. He married Catherine Smith and together they had several children and lived their lives in Cortland County, New York.


Williams obituary was printed in the Cortland County Sentinel on February 9, 1899, exactly four years after his wife's death. (Catherine died on February 9, 1895).


William died at the age of 72 from heart trouble at his home on Fox Road in Cincinnatus, New York. His body was found near his stable as he tended to the animals. He is buried in St. Patrick's Cemetery in Whitney Point.

Cortland Sentinel 2-9-1899
