Leadville Colorado   July 02, 1931

Funeral services, which were held this morning for the late Thomas Flannery, former Leadville resident, were largely attended by local friends and a representation of Gilman citizens, as he had been living at Gilman for the past twenty-three years. The services were held at 9:30 this morning from the Church of the Annunciation, the funeral cortege leaving the Moynahan-O'Malia funeral chapel at 1 o'clock.

Rev. Father E. L. Horgan officiated at mass. Two vocal solos, "Prayer for Happy Death" and "One Fleeting Hour" were sung by Mrs. Kate Forman, accompanied by Miss Mary Genry, organist.

Interment was in St. Joseph's cemetery and the pallbearers, all citizens of Gilman, Colorado, were Pete Doyle, John Doyle, O.R. Abrahamsen, John Curran, Adam Houck, and Thomas Daviney.

Born in New York City, February 1, 1872, he came to Colorado when he was about twelve years of age. After settling for a time in the San Luis valley, he later moved to Leadville when the town was in its boom. He engaged as a miner here for several years.

He was married in Leadville when he was about twenty-one, to Catherine Barlow and twenty-three years ago he and his family moved to Gilman, Colorado, where he followed his occupation as a miner and shaft foreman.

During the influenza epidemic in 1918 he lost his wife and two sons, who were buried in Leadville within a period of ten days.

While he made his home at Gilman, he gained many friends as was evidenced by the number of floral tributes and the attendance at the funeral services. Numbered among the floral tributes were many large set pieces and a broken wheel from the Gilman community.   He died in a Salida hospital last Friday morning from injuries incurred the previous morning, when he fell from a pile line at the tailings pond of the Empire Zinc company, where he had been employed for the past four or five years. Following the accident he was taken to the hospital at Salida via ambulance, and the death resulted from a punctured lung, caused by a fractured rib. For several years he had been employed as a shaft foreman but, recently, because of failing health, had been transferred to outdoor work; and it was while working on the pipe line that he fell to the ground, Thursday morning. He was rushed to the Gilman hospital and sent from there to Salida.

The only surviving member of his family, a married daughter, Mrs. Leo Jones of Oakland, California, arrived here after being notified of her father's death. He is also survived by a son-in-law, Leo Jones and three grandchildren, Patricia, Barbara and Milford Jones.

A sister-in-law, Mrs. Nellie Nolan of Lake City, Colorado and a niece Mrs. Hazel William's of Victor, Colorado together with Mr. Nolan and Mr. Williams were here for the funeral services.
