Obituary

T. J. Tully Capital City Pioneer Dead
Dies in Spokane at Age of 87 Years -- Came Here in 1879

T. J. Tully, aged 87 years, a pioneer resident of Bismarck, passed away at Spokane, Washington, Friday morning at 10 A. M., said a telegram received in the city by Grant Marsh. General disability due to old age is believed to be the cause of his death.

Mr. Tully came to Bismarck on April 17, 1879, and had seen the city grow from a straggling trading post of the prairies to a thriving city. Although he had never aspired to public office, he had always taken a strong interest in public affairs and took part in public discussions of community advancement.

Mr. Tully was a native of Ireland, having been (born) there in 1834. He came to America in 1860 with his family locating in New York, and later in Philadelphia, Pa. He served his country in the Civil War, and after the war he engaged in the tailoring business.

Coming to Bismarck in 1870 (sic) Mr. Tully engaged in this line of business. He had lived almost continuously in Bismarck since that time. In December, 1919, he went to Philadelphia to spend the winter with his son, Charles C. Tully. He went to Spokane, Washington, last Nov. 29 to spend the winter with his son, Joseph Tully.

A member of St. Mary's Pro-Cathedral Mr. Tully was known as a very religious man. He is survived by two sons and two daughters, Mrs. John Kennedy, of Balboa, Canal Zone, Mrs. Fred Dobler, of Seattle, Wash., Joseph Tully, of Spokane, Wash., and Charles C. Tully, of Philadelphia.

The body will be brought to Bismarck for burial. The time of the funeral has not been determined.
