    Joseph McCarty Dies Another Prominent Kaukauna Citizen Departs this life.

    Joseph J. McCarty, Treasurer of Outagamie County, and one of the prominent citizens in the civic, business and social life of the city of Kaukauna, departed this life shortly before 12 o'clock Thursday night, January 16, death resulting from a relapse following a recent attack of pneumonia. His death was not wholly unexpected for he had been very low for several days, but his relatives and friends had hoped for the best and the prayer of the community was that he might be spared. The news of his demise spread rapidly this morning and carried with it the deepest regret and sorrow to all classes for he was a man popular with all.

    Joseph McCarty was born February 12, 1864 and therefore would have been 44 years of age next month. He first saw the light of day on the old McCarty homestead in the town of Kaukauna, being the first born on the farm, whither his parents had moved from Green Bay, and where he spent his boyhood days. February 15, 1887, he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Pfeffer of Freedom, who proved a faithful life's companion. Vicar General P. J. Lochman of the Green Bay diocese, then stationed at the Sagole church, performed the wedding ceremony. Shortly after his marriage he took up his residence in the city, which was then enjoying a rapid and healthy growth, and has since been identified prominently in its business life. Although he received but a common school education in his younger days, he was naturally gifted with that push and ability which makes a good and successful citizen. By dint of industry and close personal application to business he had prospered until today he was numbered among not only the substantial business men of the city but of the county as well. "Joe" as he was familiarly known, was popular with all classes, the poor and the well-to-do alike. There was no fuss and feathers nonsense in his makeup. He was a man in every sense of the work and his loss is one of the kind that is immeasurable. It seems incredible that no more shall we see him go up and down our streets in social comminglings with our citizens, that he must remain with us but a memory.

    The deceased was numbered among that class of citizens who are willing and always ready to put their shoulder to the wheel and push along any movement for the welfare of the community. He was not only identified with the business life of the city, but for a number of years was closely in touch with its political and administrative life. he had been honored with various positions of trust, having served a mayor for two terms in 1896 to 1898, and previous thereto had been alderman for several years. in his earlier years of manhood Joe had been of Democratic faith, but like thousands of other good citizens enlisted under the banner of McKinley for sound money and prosperity and had since been an ardent Republican. During the campaign of 1906 when the Republican party was casting about for a strong candidate to place upon the county ticket for the office of treasurer, he was almost unanimously accepted as the right man in the right place, made the runs, was honored with the election, and at the time of his death was serving as one of the county officials at the court house.

    Joseph McCarty is survived by his wife and seven children, three sons and four daughters, namely: Maggie; Joseph; Alice M.; Margaret G. [I'd think that Maggie and Margaret are the same but this is how it's listed]; Charlotte M. Charles S. and Robert T. [you will note the failure to mention Raymond or Stanley - I can't explain it other than in these days as now reporters are not always careful with their facts.]. Also his aged father, Dennis McCarty, upon whom the blow falls heavily and it is thought seriously as he is at present confined to his bed with injuries received Saturday afternoon, referred to elsewhe.
