S.iMna . Fhaily, ' tbe oldest woman In
Omaha, tlWI yesterday at the convent of
tha Good hrpherl. She waa at lrast 100
yeara old when death claimed hT.
Her exact ara la .uncertain, aa well as
many of the circumstances of her life. But
that ahn was a centenarian la pretty well
entabliahed. Ulsa Bha!ly lias no known rel
atives surviving her. She came to Omaha
twenty yeara ngo and lived with a family
whoM name has been forgotten by resi
dents of tho onvnt, and with thla family
lived aa a Sort of dependent, half member
of th family; half domestic, In aptta of the
that she, was HO years of age. To tha
convent eh came, a little bowed flirura
of wrlrikled visage, four years ago.
Kcrapa of Information regarding the old
woman wnra nathered by the nuna at odd
times. They learned from her that she was
born la Timer county, Ireland, In the parish
of Mtlaugh, and that aha bad been a aer
1 vant In tho home of Bishop Carr of Aus
tralia whan that prelate was born In
s f Ireland. Flnca lilshop Carr Is now an old
S ' man, about 80, : and Alius Shally raid she
C waa a girl of 23 when he saw tha light,
f the age of Miss Shally Is thereby estab-
' llshed as a little over 100 years at the time
i, j of her death.
, She must have ben born five or seven
. ' yeara before ' the cannon of Waterloo
' ' Bounded. '. Assuming ' the earlier date,
, Thomas Jefferson waa then president of the
i United States.
' J Miss BhaJly's last yeara were such as are
, characteristic! ' of the very aged. She waa
only slightly, deaf and her sight waa not
seriously Impaired. Occasional periods of
childishness and gradually Increasing feeble
ness of body marked her senility.
But she was far from, being demented
and aha retained untfl theiend a lively Inter
eat in affairs which came Immediately to her
; notice. Her thoughts generally reverted
,'to her young days In Ireland and events
which then- loomed" Important to her. The
H , Birth of. Bishop. Carr was one of these. A
V devout Cathollo, to have known a f uture
t.lnhop when he waa a ' worrying infant
seemed quite wonderful to her.
Visitors to the convent taw her some
times and priests visiting the institution
generally chatted with her, but these did
not learn much more .about Miss Shally
than haa beeit'tpld. , It la not known by
them or at-the convent whether she had
been In the' United States before she came.
an old woman tit 80 even then, to Omaha,
But It is altogether unlikely that a woman
would have crossed' the Atlantic at th
age. Probably h 'was . In America for
nany years before 1890.'
Her funeral will be held today at 10
a., m., from tha convent to Holy Sepulcher
