Death: Aug., 1852

John Byrne was born in County Wicklow, Ireland, and came to the United States in 1847. He made the voyage in a sailing vessel, which required six weeks for the trip, in the course of which his wife and daughter died, the former being buried in the ocean and the latter at New Orleans after the vessel arrived in port. It was a severe blow to Mr. Byrne, but he bravely continued his journey and after arriving in Muscatine county located on section 15, Seventy-six township, where he continued until his death. His body was interred in St. Malachy's cemetery and was among the first deposited there.
