Went to Cedar Co., Iowa.  There was a great fire in the forests of Oconto Co. in October 8, 1871
that killed many people. My guess is the Currans left about this time.

DEATH CALLS JOHN COSGRIFF

COSGRIFF

    JOHN COSGRIFF the venerable gentleman who has been making his home with
his daughter, Mrs. Frank McCreary,  for several years past died last Sunday
morning after an illness of short duration  While he had been ailing all
winter, it will be remembered that just recently he fell off the porch of the
McCreary residence and it is thought that this hastened his demise.
    John Cosgriff was born in Galway Co. , Ireland on June 21, 1823 died at
Fonda, Iowa on March 31, 1912, age 88 years, eight months and 10 days.  He
came to America in 1844.  He was married to Catherine Machel May 7, 1851 and
to this union 11 children were born, six of whom survived him.  they are
Anthony, Thomas and William Cosgriff,  Mrs. James Mendenhall  living in
Absarokee, MT.,Mrs. Catherine Brown of WA. state.  and Mrs. Frank McCreary of
Fonda, Iowa at whose home he died.
 Funeral services were held at the Columbkill Church in Churdan, April 1st,
1912 after which interment was made at the Cedar Creek Cemetery, 5 miles from
Churdan., at which place his wife had been laid to rest something like 15
years ago.
    Mr. Cosgriff came to Iowa in March, 1858, settling in Cedar Co., where
he resided until March, 1881, when he moved to Big Timber, MT., remaining there
until 1909, when he came home with his daughter, Mrs. Frank McCreary.  On
February 26, 1912, he came with her to Fonda and the same evening he fell off
the porch, receiving injuries that caused his death.
    He was a man of examplary habits and was loved by all who knew him.  Mr.
& Mrs. McCreary and family are very thankful to their many new found friends
and neighbors  who have so nobly helped them during this time.
