This Cemetery is on what was the family homestead & where they had buried 4 children in 1 week during the horrible Diptheria outbreak. So later in life Michael C. O'Mahony gave the land to his Catholic Church in Pipestone, Pipestone co., MN., His parents are Patrick & Johanna O'Collahan O'Mahoney. I know nothing about his parents or siblings. ON 4/7/1863 he married Hannah J. Mullville (Mulvahill, Mulville) in NY. He immigrated to NY, NY & there he filed his citizenship papers. He was in the Merchant Marines as a Mechanic & worked on a submarine for the Civil War. After the war he & his family moved to Chicago, IL were he helped establish the cities 1st waterworks there. They lost everything but survived the great Chicago fire but some of the family had serious lung conditions. They had to move to the country, so he became the 1st white man to settle in Burke Township MN. They wanted to file the papers & name it after him (o'Mahoney) but he insisted that they honour a visiting Catholic priest Father Burke. Later the moved to Woodstock, Pipestone co., MN where he was active as a mechanic, civil engineer, & what was happening in Pipestone co. at that time. He & his wife had the following children:
