     John A. Guinan an old resident of Woodbury county died at Danbury, Oct. 15. The Danbury Review says concerning him: "The deceased was born in King's county, Ireland, in 1849, and came to this country when a boy. He spent some time in the west in the earlier days and his wife died at Laramie, Wyo. in 1876. From there he went to Missouri and from there to this county in 1882 and located in Morgan township near the Midway postoffice where he owned valuable farm property at the time of his death. About fifteen years ago he moved to a farm adjoining the town of Danbury where he purchased another fine tract of land. About a year ago his health began to fail and since that time he has been cared for by his only child, John L. Guinan of Sioux City. The deceased was a man of rugged character, honest and upright in all his dealings with his fellow men.
