Mrs. Julienne DAOUT VEREGHAN, 70, of 235 Barr street, McDonald, widow of
Louis Joseph VEREGHAN, drowned Thursday, July 23, 1942, in a pool known as
the "Third Entry" near Sturgeon.
Mrs. VEREGHAN was reported to have left her home in the morning and had
apparently walked about three miles from McDonald when the drowning
occurred. The first knowledge of the tragedy came about noon when two
Sturgeon boys, Louis DAMS and Glenn VEZIE, who had gone to the pool to swim,
found her body floating on the surface. The body was removed to the James
R. Coleman Funeral home at Cecil.
A daughter of John BAPTISTE and Angeline H. S. EDMINDE, she was born
December 19, 1869, in Belgium and upon arriving in the United States she
located in Sturgeon, where she had resided for 43 years. After her
husband's death in January 1940, she moved to McDonald and made her home
with a nephew, John DAOUT. A brother, Charles DAOUT, resides in Cecil.
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon in the DAOUT home in charge of
Charles FIALON. Burial was in Robinson's Run cemetery.
