John Geary was born about 1822 in County Clare Ireland. His obituary states he left Ireland in 1840, spent 3 years in Vermont and came to WI in June 1849. I suspect he landed in Canada and the missing years were spent there.

John's wife Ann was also born in Ireland about 1922. I don't know her maiden name (yet). It has been listed as both Maloney and Kaue on different records.

Their children were:
Daniel b. 1852 d. 1857 buried in St. Mary's cemetery Oregon, WI. Listed on back of same stone as John and Ann.

Mary Ann (married name Pross) b April 1854 d after 1930.

Elizabeth (Eliza) b 1857 d. 18 Mar 1880 buried in St. Mary's cemetery Oregon WI. Listed on back of same stone as John and Ann.

William Daniel b Dec 1859 d 30 Jun 1917 Aberdeen South Dakota buried in North Dakota.

Henry b Oct 1860 died in California abt 1925.

Catherine b 1862

George b 1864 d 11 Oct 1897 buried St. Mary's Oregon WI

Jane b 1866 d 2 July 1943 Lethbridge Alberta Canada

Frederick b 1869 d. 1935 buried in St. Mary's Oregon WI

The family is listed in the 1860, 1870 and 1880 censuses in Dunn, Dane County WI just a couple of miles from St. Mary's Cemetery Oregon WI. In the 1880 census John is indexed as "John Gery".

In 1900 Ann and her daughter Jane are living in Oregon,WI. Shortly after that Ann died and Jane went to homestead in North Dakota near her brother William (my grandfather) and then later moved to Canada.
