Roger Geraghty, one of the prominent and representative citizens of St. Mary, is a native of Ireland, born July 4, 1833, and is the son of Peter and Mary Geraghty, both natives of Ireland. The latter raised a family of six children, named as follows: Roger, Thomas, Peter, Mary, Bridget and Julia. During the year 1849 Roger Geraghty came to America, and for two years remained in Marquette County, Wis., whither he had gone on landing. From there he went south, where he remained until 1865, when he came to Waseca County and settled upon the farm on section 32, this township, where he now lives. November 16, 1856, he was united in marriage with Catherine Madden, daughter of Thomas and Honora Madden, a native of Ireland, born August 5, 1833, and who had come to the United States in 1849, the same time Mr. Geraghty had. Their married life has been blessed with a family of five children: Peter, Thomas, Mary, Honora and Kate. Peter died March 23, 1884, and Kate, March 11, 1874; the rest are living at home. The family are members of the Catholic Church. Mr. Geraghty is a Democrat in politics and has held the offices of town clerk, school clerk, and treasurer of school district 15.
