Biography* Winifred Considine Ryan, 1842-1895:
Born in County Clare, Ireland where both her parents, Joseph Considine and Margaret O'Dea, were also born, Winifred was the sixth of eight children and the sixth of seven daughters. According to family lore the family immigrated to the U.S.A. circa 1852 and settled in Newark, New Jersey. The four youngest children: Bridget age 15, Winifred age 12, Catharine age 7 and John age 5 sailed from Limerick, Ireland aboard the 212-ton brig Harriet and arrived in New York City on the 5th of August in 1851. The children were the only Considines among the 83 passengers. How the rest of the family made the crossing hasn't been discovered. By 1855, Joseph, Margaret and their only son John moved to Winona County, Minnesota. In October of that year Joseph bought 160-acres in Section 34 of Warren township from the U.S. Government. In 1860, Winifred is listed as a servant in the household of Phillip and Rebecca Morrison living in the first ward of Winona City. Phillip Morrison was a merchant born in Missouri, Rebecca was born in Massachusetts. Neither likely related to Winifred. In 1862, Winifred married James Ryan and went to live on his farm in Carrolton township of Fillmore County (about 40-miles away).

Winifred, 52, died at home on a Monday[CIT:Winifred's obit and tombstone list her death date as Monday the 8th of April. Her Fillmore County death register lists the death date as Sunday the 7th.[:CIT]. She had been sick with the gripp all winter but appoplexy was the immediate cause of death. Winifred was survived by her husband James and five children. Her funeral was held from the home on Wednesday with Rev Father Jones officiating. Over 125 teams of horses took part in the procession to the cemetery.

Biography* John Francis "Jack" Ryan, 1873 - 1946:
A first generation Irish-American, John was brought up on his parent's farm in Carrolton township and acquired his education in the country school completing the 5th grade. John's mother Winifred died in 1895 and the following year his father James remarried. The father sold the Ryan homestead to John and his brother William and moved to Winona. In 1900, John married Jane Meighen and lived on the family farm for a year. He then sold his interest in the Ryan homestead to his brother William and bought a 320-acre farm in sections two and three of Forestville township from the estate of his father-in-law William Meighen who died in 1899. There John raised cattle and dairyed. In 1902, they moved into a just completed house on the farm. By 1905 John and Jane had rented their farm and were listed as landlords. In 1910, John, wife Jane and four children were living with his widowed mother-in-law, Catherine Meighen, in Carimona township. Then, circa 1912, the family moved to Winona. After his father James died in 1916, John left Winona and moved to Preston village in Fillmore County. In 1918, John, 44, registered for the WWI draft. His occupation was listed as self-employed farmer. John was described as being of short height and stout build with brown eyes and dark hair. In 1920, he was employed as a street laborer. He and Jane and four children were living on Oak Ridge, Preston in a house they owned free of mortgage. In 1930, John and Jane were renting in Lansing township, Mower county and John was employed as a park caretaker. By 1935, they were back in Preston and renting a house. A 13-year-old grandson was living with them. In 1940, John was working as a janitor at a church. In 1939, he worked 52-weeks and was paid wages of $240. In addition to their grandson, an out-of-work nephew from Canton, Illinois with his wife and three-children were living with them. Rent was $12/month.

John, 73, died on a Tuesday in Saint Francis hospital in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Death was due to complications following a spinal injury sustained on 14 May at the Preston soya plant where he wrenched his back lifting sacks of feed. Paralysis began in one arm and gradually spread to almost entire body. He had been a patient in the hospital for eight weeks and celebrated his 73rd bithday while there. Besides his wife, John was survived by two daughters, Catherine (Mrs. Gerald) O'Connor of Los Angeles, California and Mrs. Margaret O'Connor of La Crosse, and one son James of Oak Ridge, Tennessee. He also left six grandchildren and two sisters, Mrs. Margaret Delaney of Chatfield and Mrs. Mary Toomey of Los Angeles. Besides the son Lyman who passed away in 1911 at age three and the daughter Mary Frances who died in 1937, he was preceded in death by one brother Will and by three sisters, Winifred and Catherine Ryan and Mrs. Elizabeth Travis. John's funeral was held Friday from Saint Columban's Catholic church in Preston with Rev M. L. Doyle officiating. He was buried beside a son Lyman and a daughter Mary Frances who preceded him. Pallbearers were Major and George Flynn, Ray O'Connor, M. A. Nolan, Clair Meighen and G. A. Kerr. [some of this bio was excerpted from a History of Fillmore, 1912

Biography* John Toomey, 1868-1918:
A first generation Irish-american, John was one of nine children but we only know about five of them. John was the middle child of the five and the second of four sons. Not a lot is known about John's father Dennis. He is not listed with the family in 1880 - or later - although in 1880 the mother Mary is listed as married. John's mother Mary O'Hara immigrated in 1847 with her parents and siblings and by 1850 they were living in Fox township, Elk County, Pennsylvania. By 1880, the mother Mary, John and the two-youngest children were living with Mary's widowed father Peter O'Hara in Lanesboro, Fillmore County, Minnesota. By 1885, Mary and her five children were livng in Pilot Mound, also in Fillmore County. In 1891 Mary was back in Lanesboro with her daughter, John and a younger son. By 1895, Mary had ten-lodgers and John was working as an "inc. agent", whatever that is. In 1900, John owned and operated the Merchant Hotel & Camp Site (for traveling salesmen) and had seven boarders. He also owned a blacksmith business. In 1910, he owned a farm and was farming. At the time of his death, he was a hotel keeper. In 1920, his widow was the hotel proprietress. John signed a last will and testament on 20 October 1916, his sister Alice B. Toomey was named as trustee and executrix. The will was witnessed by James Galligan and J. A. French, both of Lanesboro.

John died on a Monday at age 49. Cause of death was uremia, endocarditis, myocarditis and chronic alcoholism. He was attended by physician F. A. Drake (MD) of Lanesboro. Undertaker Olaf Thompson was in charge.

John's obituary didn't note the fact that he had been the Mayor of Lanesboro, or that he'd been a Delegate for the Republican party. However, since most of the family were Democrats that omission may have been intentional. There is no tombstone in the cemetery to mark John's passing although the list of tombstone inscriptions for St. Patrick's cemetery published and copywrited by the Fillmore County Historical Society lists his internment in row 11 with no source given for this information. John's will was approved for probate on 30 April 1919.

Biography* Anastasia Wadden Ryan, 1848-1922:
Anastasia's father ran a food store in Ireland and exported food to England. In the United States he became a farmer. The family immigrated to the United States 1848/49 settling first in Hazel Green, Grant County, Wisconsin. By 1857, they had moved to Fillmore County, Minnesota. Anastasia's 1868 marriage to William Ryan was performed by Catholic priest Thomas O'Gorman and witnessed by John Warren and Elisabeth O'Herin. By 1886, she had delivered eleven children approximately one every 20-months. The following year William, Anastasia and children moved to Farmington township, Lake County, Dakota Territory. After husband William died in 1892, Anastasia continued to operate the farm with the help of her sons. She had a very keen mind and was very knowledgeable about the business of farming. She was not a tall lady, was very strict and expected homage from all. She would have family sessions where she gave orders. Anastasia had a large vegetable and flower garden. Her home had large heavy furniture, and the drapes were always partially closed. They didn’t eat in the kitchen; they ate in the dining room where the table was set with white linens and fine china. The kitchen was bright and sunny, and always smelled of food cooking. In later years, Anastasia and her daughter, Frances, moved into Madison, Lake County. In 1920, they were living on 2nd Street NW.

Anastasia died at her home on a Saturday, age 74. She was survived by four daughters, Mrs. A. L. Boyd of Junius (within the past year widowed), Mrs. John Mulvihill residing in the west city limits, Mrs. John Harrington of Carthage, Frances of Colorado Springs, and three sons, James address unknown [There were four sons not three and the others aren't mentioned]. V.R. Wadden of Madison is a brother of the deceased. There is no tombstone in St Thomas cemetery for her.

Biography* John Edward Mulvihill, 1858-1929:
A first generation Irish-American, John was probably born on the family farm in Carrolton township, Fillmore County, Minnesota. He grew up there and left the home farm by 1885. He purchased land in Farmington township of Lake County, South Dakota from the General Land Office. John was issued patents on two 160-acre parcels there; one parcel in section 08 in 1888, the other in section 07 in 1890. He continued to acquire land and eventually owned a total of 560-acres. In 1900, the farm was free of mortgage. However, in 1910, there was a mortgage on the farm. John also owned a ranch in Texas (believed to have been rented by his brother-in-law Richard Ryan) and was a stockholder in the Farmers Elevator at Ramona and in the Morley twine plant in Sioux City, Iowa. He raised Percheron horses and at one time had 25 of them. John also raised Shorthorn cattle. At one time he owned an Apperson automobile. John and Margaret lived on the family farm until 1920, when they moved to a a smaller farm just west of Madison. His wife died in 1922.

John, age 70, died suddenly on a Tuesday at Madison hospital following a hernia operation. He was survived by three sons John, William and Thomas on the homestead farm, one daughter Regina who was teaching school in Outlook, Montana, and two sisters Mrs V. R. Wadden of Madison and Mrs Dan J. O'Connell of Ramona. Funeral arrangements were indefinite due to weather but was probably held at Ramona on Friday. Holman & Kundert Funeral Home was in charge.

Johanna may have been born in Kilfinane parish in County Limerick, Ireland.

After her marriage, she lived on a farm in Fountain township of the same county. According to family lore, Johanna and husband Michael had 13-children. But according to the birth record of the child born the day before Johanna died there were twelve. There was an 8-year gap between the last two. Six of her twelve children died young including three of diptheria in 1880 and a fourth of the same disease in 1887.

Johanna, 43, died at home at 871 Ashland Avenue on a Sunday the day after giving birth to her 12th child, who died two-days later of inanition.
