Neil M. Cronin Obituary

Neil M. Cronin was born in Sutton in 1880; his obituary appeared in the Clay County News on October 24, 1963. This item appeared in the November 28th issue of the Clay County news indicating President Kennedy's signing of the certificate honoring Sutton native Neil M Cronin occurred in the last few days of the president's life.

Mr. Cronin died on October 15th; President Kennedy
was assassinated on November 22nd; the certificate
signed by the president arrived at his widow's home
the week of the assassination.
Note: I might have worded the headline of that item a little differently.

Neil M. Cronin, born in Sutton on June 14, 1880
