LIVERPOOL ECHO
21st Jan 1889

The well known and popular song writer Mr J.B. GEOGHEGAN died at Bolton today aged 75 he had been connected to the Music Halls all his life. He wrote songs such as, "John Barleycorn," "The men of merry merry England," "Lancashire Witch," Marigold" and "Black diamond".

Catchy song, that John Barleycorn, I always wondered who wrote it ;-)
