Father: Michael McCarthy (1780-1842) Ireland

Stephen was baptized 27 Dec 1825, Borrisokane Parish, Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe, Tipperary. His parents are listed as Michael Carty & Mary Gleeson; sponsors: Tim Carty, Ann Gleeson; residence: Kyleagoonagh. This record, together with those of his siblings, may be viewed at the National Library of Ireland:

Stephen came to the USA as a young man and worked as a farm laborer in NY for 10 years in order to save money to purchase land and help bring his brothers and mother here from Ireland. He eventually bought the WI homestead near Appleton, sight unseen, from the brother of the farm owner for whom he worked.

When he had saved enough money, he traveled by train from NY to Chicago and then to Milwaukee by stagecoach. This was about 1858, and everything beyond Milwaukee was still wilderness. Stephen had to walk all the way from Milwaukee to the homestead he had purchased near Appleton. Upon arrival, he found two native Americans living on the property with a small log shelter. They assisted him in clearing the land and making a home.
