The funeral of Mr. John Kearney, who died at his home 623 North Calvert Street will take place on February 28, 1899 at 10 A.M. A solemn mass of requiem will be offered at St. Ignatius Church, Calvert and Madison Streets with interment in Holy Cross Cemetery.
His death was sudden, being confined to bed , only one day, with asthma. Born in Dublin, Ireland on May 5, 1822, he came to Baltimore in 1850. Four years later, he engaged in the livery business at the southeast corner of Centre and St. Paul Streets, called Mt. Vernon Stables. He often spoke of pasturing his horses on the nearby vacant lots near the stable. Soon after he built an addition to the stables and in 1857, the Monumental Assembly Rooms were opened on the second floor, which for some time , was a favorite place for entertainment, including the opera, with famous singers.
The Fifth Regiment also headquarted there for a time, as well as the Wednesday Club. He retired about five years ago and leased the stables.
His daughter, Mrs. Marion Wolcott, wife of Levi Bruce Wolcott, is his only surviving child. His wife, Mrs. Rose Kearney, daughter of The late Captain Hugh C. T. Hughes, died on November 18, 1861.
