Biography* Homer Day McMillen, 1891-1958:
Born in Iowa to a father born in Illinois and a mother born in Iowa, Homer was living with his parents and two older brothers on the family farm in Valley Township, Guthrie County, Iowa in 1900. He was the third son and had a younger sister. By 1910, Homer's parents were renting a farm in Dell Rapids township, Minnehaha County, South Dakota. His education consisted of three years of High School. In 1920, Homer was farming on his own in Jefferson Township, Moody County, South Dakota. He owned his home free of mortgage. By 1930, Homer and wife Ellen were renting at 845 SW 37th Avenue in Miami for $35/mo. Homer was proprietor of a gasoline filling station at Ponce De Leon Blvd and the Trail in Coral Gables. He operated the service station for 27 years from circa 1924 until circa 1951. By 1935, they had moved to 4160 SW 13th Street in Coral Gables (inside the city limits). In 1939, Homer worked for 52-weeks, often for 70-hours a week, and earned $2,000. In 1940, their house was valued at $4,500. After retiring from the station, Homer went to work as a cashier in a local grocery store. He was very active in the local community. Homer was a charter member of the Coral Gables Rotary; an Elk; and active in raising money for the Variety Children's Hospital.

Homer, 67, was killed on a Saturday during a holdup at the Charlie & Charlie Super Market, 3641 SW Eighth Street in Miami where he worked. At the time of his death, Homer and Ellen were residing at 4160 SW 13th Street in rural Dade County. He was buried the following Tuesday.

Biography* Patrick Galvin, 1800-1892:
Patrick Galvin and Catherine O'Donoghue lived in Drumwood townland, Solloghodmore (Solohead) civil parish, County Tipperary during the 1820s, 30s and 40s. This was probably Catherine's home parish and just as probably was not Patrick's. Church parish records, which begin in 1810, show no events involving a Galvin in the decade between 1810 and when Patrick's daughter Brigid is christened in 1820. By contrast, there are events for four O'Donoghue families during that decade. Drumwood townland is near the western Tipperary border with County Limerick, approximately half-way between Cappawhite and Oola. Both Cappawhite and Oola should be shown on the map of Ireland in any typical world atlas. The church marriage of Patrick and Catherine is recorded in 1827, after the christenings of their first two children in 1820 and 1825. Were these first two children in fact illegitimate as recorded? Probably not. There is a plausible, albeit speculative, explanation for this.

The English government began imposing the Penal Laws in Ireland near the end of the seventeenth century (1695). One of the purposes of these laws was the eradication of Catholicism. And although this eradication was unsuccessful, it did have the effect of eliminating the church hierarchy and essentially driving the practice of the religion underground. One consequence of this law, intended or not, is that there are no church records for this period. The English began to repeal the penal laws about one-hundred-years later. It took another thirty or forty years for the church hierarchy to be reestablished and for the bishops to regain control. In the meantime, priests had been allowed by the state to continue performing legal marriages. They performed christenings also but the state had no interest in those.

Patrick Galvin and Catherine O'Donoghue lived, loved and procreated during the transition period after the repeal of the penal laws. A priest probably married them and the marriage probably took place before they cohabited and before they conceived their first child. But, that marriage was never recorded in either a civil register nor a church register. Since the registers in Solohead Parish begin in 1810, there must have been another reason. Marriages, unlike christenings, were traditionally performed in the home, not the church. The bishops, during the transition period after repeal of the penal laws, authorized the collection of fees for the performance of marriages. No fee - no record! It seems likely that at least one of the reasons the bishops did this was to encourage the use of the parish priest, that is, a priest under the bishop's control. However, there were still some, if not many, priests, who were not aligned to any bishop, who would have performed the service for a meal. Presumably a more affordable alternative for the average church mouse. So, when Patrick and Catherine took their first child to the church to be christened, there was no record of their marriage. The child was thus recorded as illegitimate. After Patrick and Catherine were married again - in the church - all was right with the world - at least the bishop's version of the world.

Patrick's year of immigration to the United States is not known but it's believed that he came to the States circa 1852 with four of his daughters. Patrick first appears in Ghent Township, Columbia County, New York circa 1853. An illiterate, alien, widowed pauper, he is living in the county poor house where he will remain for at least the next two years. In 1860, he is working as a farm laborer and living with his daughter Ellen and her husband John McCarty in Claverack Township in the same county. In the late 1850s, his daughters and their families begin moving from Columbia County, New York to Dane County, Wisconsin. Patrick migrates with his children and lives with various of them in that place. By 1870, he has acquired citizenship and is living with daughter Margaret and her husband Lawrence Dolan. In 1880, he is back with Ellen and John and has become crippled.

Patrick was referred to by his daughters as the "Dava." The meaning of this appelation, if any, is lost in the mists. He was also missing a finger. According to family lore, he cut the finger off himself to avoid going to war. Since he was in his sixties when the United States Civil War began he must have left the finger in Ireland. He probably lost the finger in an accident but that he cut it off himself made for a much better story. There is also a story that Patrick, in order to avoid some soldiers who were looking for him, hid down a well.

The Dava, 92, died on a Saturday, probably in Sun Prairie, and is buried with daughter Margaret and son-in-law Lawrence in the Dolan plot in Sacred Hearts Cemetery. The stone erected in his memory is relatively new and lists his death year, incorrectly, as 1895. It is not known, in 1999, who erected this stone nor whether it replaced an earlier stone.

Biography* Catherine Galvin Mulcahy, 1839-1910:
Catherine's birthdate is listed as 8 May 1841 on her tombstone. However, she was christened on 20 May 1839. Assuming that the month and the day-of-month on the tombstone are correct then Catherine was probably born on that date in 1839 and was two-years-older than whoever ordered the tombstone thought! The photograph of her on this record was taken on an unknown date at an unknown place. It was found in the attic of the Thomas McCarthy (1863-1936) home farm in Sun Prairie Township by his daughter-in-law Isabel (nee Almond) (McCarthy) Bauman. Catherine came to the third ward of Hudson, New York circa 1852 with her widowed father and three older sisters. By 1855, at the age of 16, she was employed as a live-in servant with W'm and Harriet Terry. Later, in May of 1857, Catherine acted as christening sponsor for niece Margaret McCarty. In November of that year she married Dennis Mulcahy. Circa 1866, Catherine, Dennis and children moved to Dane County, Wisconsin.

Catherine, 71, died on a Thursday while on a visit to Colman, South Dakota (probably her Godchild, niece Margaret (McCarthy) Sweeney who lived in Fremont township). Her remains were brought back to her home that Saturday. The following Monday Catherine was laid to rest in the cemetery of Saint Michael's church of which she was a member.

Biography* Michael Manley,5 ca1824-1878:
Born circa 1824 in Ireland, Michael arrived on U.S. shores on 31 May 1851 when he stepped off the SS Don at the Port of New York. He was the only passenger with the surname Manley on board. Michael became a resident of Ghent Township in Columbia County, New York and applied for citizenship. This was granted in Supreme Court of the State of New York at Columbia County on 19 September 1856. At the time, he was listed as resident of Greenport in Columbia County. In the spring of 1858, Michael, Mary and their three children, moved to a farm one mile west of Sun Prairie Village in Burke Township of Dane County, Wisconsin. Later, the family moved to another farm three miles southwest of Sun Prairie Village.

Michael, an illiterate, naturalized citizen of the United States, died suddenly of pneumonia at his home in Sun Prairie Township on a Tuesday evening. He was 54 years old.

Little is known about Michael Manley's origins in Ireland and there is little hope of learning anything further from footprints that he himself left behind. The best chance for success is to locate some relative of his in the States. Unfortunately, there were no other Manleys in Columbia County, New York around the time he was there and there were none in Dane County, Wisconsin either. Two years after his death, in 1880, there were twenty-one Irish born Manleys in nine counties in the Badger state of Wisconsin. Nine of the twenty-one were married or widowed women, including his own widow, none of whom were likely to have been born Manley. The closest of these to Sun Prairie were two families in Dodge County and a single man in Darlington.

  5. Two experts consulted do not agree on the origins of this surname. The Rev. Patrick Woulfe lists the surname with the Irish "O'Maonghaile" 'descendent of Maonghal' (gift-valour) and is pronounced O'Monhily or O'Monnilly. Anglicized as Munnelly, Monnelly, Monley or Manley. Found chiefly in County Donegal and North Connacht (Counties Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim). Edward MacLysaght acknowledges that Manley is a variant of this surname, found chiefly in County Mayo, although he insists that Manley is an English surname. MacLysaght's primary reference to Manley is as a variation of the County Cork name "O'Máinle" which he says is often pronounced Mauly there.

Biography* Dennis Mulcahy, 1828-1913:
There is a discrepancy on Dennis' birthdate. His Dane County, Wisconsin death record lists his birthdate as 24 December 1827. The informant on this death record was his son Thomas. A birthdate of 9 June 1828 is listed on his tombstone. Unknown who ordered the tombstone. It's possible the birthdate was listed on the tombstone while Dennis was still alive. According to his obituary, Dennis was born in Carrignavar, County Cork. A search of Carrignavar parish records, which exist from 1806, failed to find a christening record for him.

Dennis, an illiterate farmer born in Ireland, came to the United States in 1843 and worked as an overseer on a large garden and fruit farm for a number of years. By 1857 he was living in Hudson, New York where he married Catherine Galvin. In 1865, Dennis, Catherine and their three children moved to Burke Township in Dane County, Wisconsin (a fourth child born in New York had died in infancy). Three more children were born to them while living in Burke. In 1871, the family moved to Dane Township. Here they remained while four more chiildren came to bless their home. After Catherine died in 1910, Dennis went to live with his son Daniel.

Dennis, 85, died on a Thursday at his old residence near Dane. He was survived by eight of his eleven children all of whom lived in Dane. He was also survived by 23 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Biography* Kathryn "Kate" Manley, 1857-1871:
There is conflicting evidence for Kate's birth date. A birth date of 9 August 1857 is listed in her christening record. A birth date of 28 February 1857 is calculated from her death date and age on her tombstone (died on 23 May 1871 at age 14 years, 2 months & 23 days). Have assumed that Kate was born in Ghent Township of Columbia County, New York. Her parents were living in that township in 1855 and in the spring of 1858 the family moved to Dane County, Wisconsin. Her 6 September 1857 christening at Saint Mary's in Hudson was sponsored by her uncle William Galvin and by Margaret O'Neill.

Kathryn, 13, died on a Tuesday.

Biography* Patrick Manley, 1858-1885:
There is conflicting evidence for Patrick's birth date and place. A birth date of 30 October 1858 is calculated from his death date and age on his tombstone (died on 13 January 1885 at age 26-years, 02-months, 14- days). A birth date of 01 November 1858 is listed in his church funeral record. Most sources list his birthplace as Wisconsin; at least one lists it as New York.

Patrick was working in the woods near Detroit, Minnesota with a crew of lumbermen harvesting timber when he was struck on the head by a falling limb. The accident happened on Monday 12 January 1885. Patrick, 26, died the next day. The postmaster in Detroit sent a telegram to the postmaster in Sun Prairie on Wednesday advising of the tragedy. Patrick's brother Con went to Detroit to retrieve the remains, arriving back in Sun Prairie on Tuesday the 20th. The funeral was held the next day.

Have not located Detroit, Minnesota. It is not listed in the index to the 1999 edition of the AAA map of Minnesota. There is a listing for a Detroit Lakes in Becker County.

Biography* Michael Manley, 1865-1931:
Michael's death record and obituary list his birth date as 20 January 1867. However, the evidence for his birth as well as that of both older and younger siblings suggest that he was probably born in 1865, not 1867. Several years prior to his marriage in 1898, Michael left the home farm and acquired a farm of his own one mile east of Sun Prairie. He lived there until 1900 when he moved to a farm four miles southeast of Sun Prairie where he spent the rest of his life. Michael was always an active figure in the community life of his township. He was school treasurer for twelve years and town treasurer for two years. Michael was also a member of the Modern Woodman.

Michael, 66, died on a Saturday after a short illness following a heart attack. He was survived by his wife, six children and four grandchildren. He was also survived by three sisters and two brothers. Of his many surviving nieces and nephews, one, Charlotte Dolan (Mrs L. C. Drunasky Jr.), spent most of her life in his home until the time of her marriage. Funeral services were conducted the following Monday at Sacred Hearts by the Rev. Hausler. The local camp of the Modern Woodman attended the services in a body. Graveside services were conducted by a nephew, the Rev. Leo Skalitzky. Pallbearers were Charles Alberts, Charles Drunasky, Louis Drunasky Sr., William Kruse Sr., John Blaska Jr. and Fred Strohmenger.

Biography* Cornelius "Con" Manley, 1856-1933:
The second of ten children and first son born to Michael Manley and Mary Galvin, Con was christened on 24 August 1856 at Saint Mary's in Hudson. His sponsors were Thomas Galvin, his mother's brother, and Ellen Galvin, his mother's sister. Circa 1878, Con left home and ventured west to seek fame and fortune. He eventually rose to foreman on a large wheat farm in Moorhead, Minnesota. Circa 1893 he returned to Wisconsin and, with his brother Charles, purchased the Rand farm four miles southeast of Sun Prairie.

After brother Charles died in 1899, Con continued to operate this mortgaged farm in partnership with his brother's widow Mary Conway. Then, when he married in 1906 at age 50, he moved to another farm one and one-half miles from the Village and by 1910 owned this farm free of mortgage. Some years later, he moved to still another farm four miles southeast of the Village. Con retired in 1918, bought a house in Sun Prairie Village, and moved into town on the 5th of November of that year.

Con, 76, died at his home on a Monday. Funeral services were held from Sacred Hearts on Wednesday with the Rev. Haeusler officiating. Pallbearers were nephews Fred Boss, Frank Tracy, Harold Manley, Mark Manley, Vernon Manley, and Robert Manley.

Julia married Patrick Tracy of Center Township, Rock County, Wisconsin in 1878. In 1886, Patrick's brother, Joseph Tracy, married Julia's sister, Mary Manley. After their marriage, Julia and Patrick lived in Center and Janesville townships in Rock County. They had four children there and sometime after 1900 moved to Chicago. Her husband Patrick died in 1911. In 1940, Julia was livig with her daughter Kathryn and her husband Fred Boss at 734 Elmwood Avenue in Oak Park, Cook County, Illinois.

Biography* Andrew Dolan, 1866-????:
Listed as Ann Dolan in christening records of Saint Mary's in Hudson, New York, Andrew was the fourth born to Andrew Dolan and Frances Decker. He was the nephew of Lawrence Dolan, husband of Margaret Galvin.

After wife Ellen Manley died in 1899, Andrew left his children with relatives and moved to Massachusetts. There he remarried and, according to family lore, had more children. In 1920, Andrew and his second wife, Jennie, were living at 200 Church Street in North Adams, Berkshire County. Andrew was working as a foreman of carpenters for a construction company. His mother and his sister Marly were living with the family. There were no children listed.

When Andrew left Sun Prairie, his daughter Charlotte went to live with her uncle Michael Manley. Son Charles went to live with his aunt Julia Tracy who later moved to Janesville. Andrew came back to see his children in Wisconsin at least once. When Andrew went to the school to visit Charlotte, she learned for the first time that she was born a Dolan, not a Manley. Son Joseph Tracy's wife Martha kept in touch with Andrew.

Biography* Patrick Francis Tracy, 1849-1911:
Patrick was born in Canada to an Ireland born father and a Canadian born mother. Patrick's father Michael was married twice and sired a total of fifteen children. Patrick was the fifth born to the second wife and the 10th of his father. The family moved to Wisconsin circa 1852 because, according to family lore, the father wanted to be close to one of his brothers. They settled on a farm in Center township in Rock County, Wisconsin. Patrick continued to farm in Center and Porter townships after his 1878 marriage and by 1900 was renting a farm in Janesville township. By this time, he had been naturalized. Sometime after 1900, Patrick and wife Julia moved to Chicago presumably having foregone farming.

Patrick, 61, died, it is believed, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. His funeral was held in Green Bay on Tuesday the 21st of February and his remians transported to Janesville for burial on the same day. Pall bearers were John Waters of Fond du Lac, plus Thomas Heffernan, Martin Graham, John O'Brady, Claude Sloan and John Finnerly of Green Bay. Out-of-towners in Janesville for the burial were Helen Waters of Fond du Lac, M/M William Manley of Sun Prairie, M/M F. W. Boss of Madison, James Coughlin, M/M M Tracy, Alice Tracy, Anna Tracy and Mrs Thomas Madigan all of Chicago, M/M M Ludden of Leyden, M/M Wm Gliden of Evansville, Thomas and Patrick Tracy of Afton and Alva Tracy of Leyden.
