TIMOTHY McCARTHY (1851-1886) Son of Bartley McCarthy & Catherine Hyland
MARY BURNS (1855- ) (Parents Unknown)


Timothy (1878- ) (Moved to California ??)

Little information is available about Timothy and his wife. Timothy was apparently born out east and came to Lakeville with his parents. He was married in 1876. His wife's last name was Burns but she does not appear to have been related to any of the other Burns/Byrnes families in the area and may have been living in St. Paul prior to her marriage. Some time in 1882, this Timothy moved to West St. Paul where he was a partner in establishing a dry goods store. Timothy however became ill soon after and is said to have moved his family to California for health reasons. He died in Los Angeles Cal. in 1886. Timothy's body was brought back to Lakeville and buried in Hyland Cemetery. Nothing is known about his wife and their only known child after this and it is thought that they remained out west.

MARY MORAN (1869-1944) Dau.of Patrick Moran &

Patrick and his wife moved to the town of Donnelly MN shortly after their marriage. The were still residing there in 1910. It is possible that they eventually moved to Buffalo MN.
