Thomas Flannigan
July 10, 1889 – October 23, 1918

Thomas Flannigan, a former Olivia boy, is dead in France. His sister, Mrs. Henry Patzwald, received a telegram Tuesday night informing her that he was killed on October 23rd. He entered the service in June and was sent to France shortly afterward. The young man was reared in this vicinity and for a number of years past worked on farms near Renville, making his home much of the time with Robert E. McKinley. He was a fine young man, always cheerful and of a happy disposition, and his untimely death is a sad blow to his relatives and friends here. Two of his sisters, Mrs. Henry Patzwald and Mrs. Andrew Fox, reside here.
