Timothy Kearney, home safe - Minooka Soldiers Given Up As Lost Notify...
Minooka Soldiers Given Up As Lost Notify Parents of Arrival at Hoboken Tuesday Last. Their names were on the casualty lists among those reported as "missing in action:" that was some time ago, and their relatives had about reconciled themselves to the fact that they were lost, perhaps killed or wounded. And then on Tuesday, Timothy Kearney and John C. Donovan, of Minooka, notified their parents that they had arrived safely at an Atlantic port. And because the censorship regulations in these days are not as strict as forti erly, they said that they were safe in Hoboken, which is about as safe as anyone can be. Both Kearney and Donovan were draft army men. TIw first named left here in July, while Donovan had been gone since May. They were sent over after a brief course of training at camp, and soon saw active service. Several weeks ago, Don6van, the war department notified Ms parents, "missing in action." It was only Saturday that Mr. and Mrs. Michael Kearney, of Cedar avenue, received word that their son was missing. Donovan is the son of Mr. and Daniel Donovan, of McCarthy No further ward had been received from Donovan, nor had the war department located him. Both men, immediately upon arriving at Hoboken, notified their parents of their safety, saying that they would write as as possible. Nothing further been heard from either. Rumors in Minooka are to the that Charles Sirple, another boy that place, who has been officially listed as missing in action, has officially listed as missing In has been wounded. Relatives, however, have been unable to affirm reports.
