MARCH 5, 1896
Rev. James Hogan, of Uptergrove, was buried on Friday. There was a very large attendance at the requiem Mass, which was celebrated by Rev. Vicor-General McCann, and the funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Father Ryan. Father Hogan was respected by all classes and loved by his parishioners. He was a profound scholar, an eloquent preacher, a dignified yet modest gentleman. He was a genuine type of the true educated Irishman, generous, kind, energetic, always at work, always pleasant and hopeful. St. Columbkill’s Parish has reason to deeply lament their gentle-hearted priest.
