Mrs. Hugh Rodgers

Mrs. Bridget Brennen Rodgers, relict of Hugh Rodgers, died of general debility at 1:30 Wednesday morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. John Stein, in East End, Pittsburg, aged about eighty years. She was a native of Ireland, but came to this country many years ago. Her husband was an employee of the Cambria Iron Company for many years and died in Prospect Borough about 1886. Patrick Brennen, a brother of Mrs. Rodgers, was badly wounded in the Rebellion and died here a few years afterward. Mrs. Rodgers made her home in the Twelfth Ward for many years, going to Pittsburg to live with her son-in-law and daughter about 1898. She is survived by these children: Patrick Rodgers and Mrs. John Papa, of Chicago; Mrs. Timothy Riley, of Rankin, and Mrs. John Stein, mentioned above. The remains were brought to Johnstown last evening on the 7:16 train and were taken to the home of her nephew, Frank O'Donnell, No. 229 Ebensburg road, Twelfth Ward. The funeral will take place at 9 o'clock this morning from St. John's Catholic Church. Interment will be made in the church cemetery at Geistown.
