JOHN CRONIN It becomes our painful duty to record the death of one of our best citizens in the prime of life and in the midst of great usefulness. John Cronin died at his residence in Maple Grove, last Friday, Feb. 9th, at the age of 27 years, of consumption, leaving behind his mourning parents loving, now disconsolate, young wife and two small children. John, whom we have known and respected from his boyhood up, learned the printer's trade in he[sic] Pilot office, then was employed for a long time in the Paper Warehouse of Hon. J.A. Noonan, in Milwaukee, and returned about four years ago to this county, where he started a country store in Maple Grove, and had soon established a thriving and profitable business; he was appointed Post Master at Maple Grove and honored with all the public offices he was willing to accept. But that insidious destroyer soon made itself felt by its victim, who, bravely bore and finally resignedly yielded to its deadly influence.

JOHN DOOLAN (d. 1874) The following article happened to his grandson, Thomas Doolan. Thomas is buried in Milwaukee and can be found on findagrave.com. I put this here because I wanted researchers to be able to find it. DOOLAN PLACE, HOUSE, STORE, SALOON, BURN Blaze Wipes Out Property Valued at Big Sum One of the worst fires in years in Manitowoc county today caused a loss estimated at from $18,000 to $25,000 at Maple Grove where the store, saloon and residence property of Thomas Doolan was completely destroyed. The big stock of the store and furnishings of the home were lost, practically nothing being saved from the flames. The loss is partially covered by insurance. The fire, which was discovered at 9:30, started in a store room in the upstairs of the store building and the flames spread with such rapidity as to make it impossible to save much of the stock of the store, although a large force of volunteers assisted in battling the flames. Lack of facilities for fighting the fire made the task a hopeless one, however, and within a short time the building, which was one of considerable size, was a mass of ruins and the fire had spread to the dwelling adjacent, and virtually under the same roof, and it too was laid waste. Valders Sends Aid Valders, which was appealed to when it became apparent that the fire was serious, sent its fire department to aid in fighting the blaze but when the firemen arrived the destruction of the property was completed and little could be done. Had the Valders firemen reached the scene 30 minutes earlier, it would have been possible to save the dwelling, it is said but the distance from Maple Grove and the time consumed by the trip, made the arrival too late. Bucket Brigade in Heroic Work Dozens of villagers with buckets formed a brigade which worked heroically in an attempt to check the flames but the facilities were to limited to make effective the work and Mr. Doolan and his family were forced to see their business and home laid waste. Fortunately there was no high wind and no buildings immediately adj- acent or the loss might have been still greater. Mr. Doolan could not estimate his loss today but friends said that it would go to $20,000 if not more. A barn on the premises was the only building of the Doolan property to be saved. With the exception of one wall on the west wing of the residence, every part of the buildings attacked were completely wiped out and the place is a mass of smoldering ruins. In Business 7 Years Mr. Doolan has been engaged in business at Maple Grove for seven years, and enjoys a wide acquaintance and large patronage. The property embraced the store, saloon, hall and residence all of which are a complete loss. The store was well stocked with general merchandise.

During the Civil War the deceased tried to enlist, but his father needed him on the farm and he remained at home. The death of his father in 1874 and his mother in 1878 left him the owner of the large farm. He continued to operate it until 20 years ago when he turned it over to his son John, the present owner. He spent the summers on the farm and his winters in this city. The wife of Mr. Doolan was Mary Mullan. She died in 1895. Eight of 13 children survive.

Mrs. Doyle was 32 years old at the time of her death and leaves 6 children—the oldest nine years and the youngest just born—without a mother's care and love. Here was a quiet, unobtrusive nature, loving and lovable, made all the more so by maternal duties; and we speak not in fulsome terms of un- deserved praise when we say that many a more brilliant woman possessed fewer of the inherent qualities of a lady than did Ellen Doyle. Her funeral was attended by persons from various parts of the county.
