Helped build the first railroad into Fairfield, Iowa in 1858 with his brother John. John was my great grandfather. He was married to Mary Burns. James was married to Mary Davis.
The first train to arrive in Fairfield (1858) was from Burlington, Iowa, on the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad. Track construction was completed to Omaha, Nebraska, sometime after the Civil War ended.

None of the children for James & Mary made it to adulthood. They all died in childhood. All the children are listed on the other side of this stone.

In probate records; there are no surviving family after death of his wife Mary Davis Lanigan.

My late uncle Tim Lanigan had this stone repaired and I decorate it every year.
