Final Decree dated March 26, 1900 in the case of Galena O'Neill, John McGuire aka Jack Burns, Executor. Lots 3 and 4 in Block 51 in the City of Brainerd are assigned to John McGuire, the sole heir. [Contributed by John Van Essen]

Block 51 is bounded by Front and Laurel, and by 2nd and 3rd Streets. Lot 1 is on the SW corner, and Lots 3 & 4 are a bit further north of Laurel on the west side of 3rd Street (roughly where the public entrance to the new Crow Wing County courthouse is). [Contributed by John Van Essen]

No obituary published in the Brainerd Dispatch.

      Mrs. Mollie [sic] O'Neill, for many years one of the best known denizens of the shady West End resorts, died at her place on Third street on Saturday last, of cancer, aged 59 years. The funeral took place on Monday, the interment being in Evergreen cemetery. (Brainerd Tribune, 25 March 1899)

      Mrs. O'Neill administratrix of the estate of the late Jack O'Neill has been removed by the court from that position, P. Mertz being appointed in her place. The cause was on account of crooked business being done in the shape of ten barrels of prime goods being shipped to Wisconsin by Mrs. O'Neill in her maiden name and which belonged to the estate. The goods have been recalled and the matter will be fixed up the first of the week. (Brainerd Dispatch, 08 August 1884, p. 3, c. 3)

      Mrs. J. O'Neill has leased the Tilley saloon on Fourth street, and opened up in good style. (Brainerd Dispatch, 22 August 1884, p. 3, c. 2)

      Mrs. J. O'Neill was arrested and brought before Judge Douglas On Monday last on the charge of keeping a house of ill-fame. The case was continued for one week. (Brainerd Dispatch, 10 October 1884, p. 3, c. 2)

      Mrs. Jack O'Neill is on trial this afternoon before an intelligent jury of twelve men for keeping a house resorted to for prostitution. Whether this will be a double of the Ham case or not remains to be see. (Brainerd Dispatch, 17 October 1884, p. 3, c. 3)

      Mrs. O'Neill was found guilty of keeping a house of prostitution and fined $50 and costs. (Brainerd Dispatch, 24 October 1884, p. 3, c. 1)

      On Thursday the second trial of Mrs. J. O'Neill for keeping a house of ill-fame came up before Judge Douglas. A jury was subpoenaed and were out only 20 minutes when they brought in a verdict of guilty. The defendants made no defense whatever. The fine is one hundred dollars but the judge only imposed $50 and costs. The case has been appealed to the district court. (Brainerd Dispatch, 24 October 1884, p. 3, c. 2)

      Mrs. Gelena [sic] O'Neill runs a disreputable house at the corner of Front and Fourth streets. On Tuesday last she was arrested for selling liquor. As she had no license His Honor very naturally imposed a fine on the female beauty, which will undoubtedly be more severe the next time she is caught in the act. (Brainerd Dispatch, 12 June 1885, p. 3, c. 5)

      Two of Brainerd's depraved women had a fist fight on Saturday last, and on Tuesday they figured in the police court as culprits. Galena O'Neill paid $5 and costs for the fun of getting a black eye, while Georgia Owens concluded she would be in jail twenty days rather than pay her fine. (Brainerd Dispatch, 28 August 1885, p. 3, c. 3)

      Mrs. Galena O'Neill has, on the advice of her physicians, gone to Michigan. (Brainerd Dispatch, 23 October 1885, p. 3, c. 2)
