TIIE BEE: OMAHA, THURSDAY, .TUXE 2, 1910. 7 of th rr p convc 4 bEATII CALLS A CENTENARIAN t Labina Shally, Oldeit Omaha Woman,. . Dies in Convent BORN IN NORTHERN IRELAND Kaowa to IIkt Llrrd la Omaha Last Ttto ' Decade -Maay Clraam stances of Her 1.1 fe Not Dis covered 1s Jfaaa. . 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 cemetery.
