DEATH OF BISHOP
Very Rev. Henry Cosgrove, Head
of Davenport Diocese,
Passes to Rest.
CLOSE OF LONG SERVICE
Ordained a Priest in 1857, and Shortly
After Appointed to a Parish
The death of Very Rev. Bishop Hen
ry Cosgrove, bishop of the Davenport
diocese, occurred Saturday evening at
7:25, after a long illness which had
made it impossible for many months
for him to perform the services of the
church. The bishop's death closes a
long life in the service of the church.
and for nearly 50 years he has been
located in Davenport and for 25 years
has been at the head of the Davenport
diocese. The remains will be placed
in the cathedral in Davenport tomorrow
evening at the conclusion of the Christ
mas solemnities of the church, and will
lie in state until Thursday morning at
10 o'clock, when the funeral will be
Word of the bishop's death was sent
to all of the bishops of the. United
States, and to all the priests of Iowa
by Bishop Davis, Bishop Cosgrove's
coadjutor. It Is expected that from
100 to 200 churchmen from Iowa and
Illinois will gather in Davenport Thurs
day to pay the last respects to the de
Native of Pennaylvania.
Rt.-Rev. Henry Cosgrove was morn
at Williamsport, Pa., Dec. 19, 1834, and
at the age of 11 he came west and
made his home at Dubuque, where he
secured his early education, and first
evidenced his Inclination for the priest
hood . As a boy he was one of the aco
lytes of the old cathedral in Daven
port. Later he studied at St. Mary's
seminary in Perry county, Missouri,
and entered the seminary at Caronile-
let. Mo., where he completed the philo,
sophic and theological course. When
but 23 years of age he had completed
the preparation for ordination, and re
turned to Dubuque, where he was or
dained Aug. 27, 1857. The newly or
dained priest was then appointed to
fill a vacancy at St. Margaret's church
in Davenport, and for nearly 50 years
had continued his labors for the church
in Davenport. He became pastor of
the church in November, 1861. His
service and attainments are familiar to
those who knew Bishop Cosgrove. The
history of the church in Davenport Is
largely a history of Bishop Cosgrove's
Appointment Showed Power.
In the appointment of Bishop Cos
grove there is strong evidence of the
confidence of the entire diocese in his
ability and faithfulness, and the rec
ognition of his efforts. He had been
made administrator of the diocese on
the death of Bishop McMullen, and
served in that capacity for nearly a
year. The appointment would under
ordinary circumstances have been made
on the recommendation of the provin
cial bishops, but whenFather Cosgrove
was not included In these, a petition
from the priests of the diocese was
forwarded to Rome, and the priests
were successful in securing his ap
pointment by Pope Leo.
His administration of the diocese has
proved the confidence of - the priests
and parishioners well placed.
Bishop Cosgrove is survived by two
brothers, James and John Cosgrove of
Davenport, and three sisters, Mrs.
Mary Roach of Chicago, Mrs. J. F. Gil
more of Missouri Valley, Iowa, and
Mrs. Murray of Fonda, Iowa.
The remains are to be laid at rest
in the mortuary chapel recently built
in the cathedral.
