PATRICK MULLERY (1826-1891) (Parents Unknown)
WINNIFRED FINNERTY (1829-1896) Parents Thomas Finnerty & Catherine Killalea 

Very little is known about Patrick Mullery prior to about 1858. He was known to have been born somewhere in Ireland (possibly Co. Mayo) and appears to have arrived in Minnesota some time in the early to mid-1850s. He was apparently located in Dakota County prior to 1858 when the baptism of his first known child is recorded. He is not recorded among the earliest settlers to the county and it is possible that he resided for a while in St. Paul before moving to Dakota County. In any event Patrick and his wife were already settled on a farm in Rosemount Twp. in 1860. Nothing is known about his wife and it is not clear when they were married. There is some evidence to suggest that Winnifred was in fact related to an obscure family that settled in Lebanon Twp. some time in the 1850s. Patrick was also known to have a close relative who was married to Martin Bohan , settled for a short time in the area and may have later moved to St. Paul. It is also possible that Patrick may have also been related to a John Mullery that settled and raised a family in the city of St. Paul but there is as yet no direct evidence to support this.

Some time in the early 1870s Patrick acquired a farm in Lebanon Twp. and appears to have moved there with his family. Both Patrick and his wife are buried in the parish church cemetery in the town of Rosemount.
