The Dunleavy Family Heritage
Thomas and Jane (Rooney) Dunleavy

Thomas and Jane (Rooney) Dunleavy were my wife Deb's great-great-grandparents (see lineage at right). Thomas Dunleavy (1846-1920) was born in Galena, Ill., and Jane Rooney was born in Mount Hope, N.J.; their parents were from Ireland. Thomas and Jane Dunleavy married in 1867 at Menominee, Ill., where Jane's parents had eventually migrated. Thomas and Jane lived at Menominee, where they farmed; Thomas had also been a railroad engineer. They later moved to Dubuque, Iowa, where they both died. Read what has been learned about their lives and the lives of their children--William, Thomas, Frank, James, John, and Mary--and grandchildren. Also on this page is information that has been discovered about both Thomas's and Jane's siblings and their descendants.    T.L.

    Thomas and Jane (Rooney) Dunleavy

    Thomas F. Dunleavy was born in 1846* in Galena, Illinois, son of Anthony and Catherine Dunleavy, who had both been born in Ireland and by 1840 were living in Galena.
    * = Thomas Dunleavy was born in 1846, according to his grave marker at Nativity BVM Cemetery at Menominee, Ill.; he was born in November 1845, according to the 1900 U.S. Census (another source had his month of birth as January); and when he died on May 27, 1920, his obituary stated he was 76 years old, placing his birth circa 1844.

    Bernard Dunleavy (1840-1907)
    Thomas Dunleavy (1846-1920)
    Mary Ann Dunleavy (1851-1905)
    Katherine (Dunleavy) Fitzpatrick (1851-1913)

    Anthony and Catherine Dunleavy both were born in Ireland. According to the 1850 U.S. Census, they both were born circa 1815; subsequent censuses have Catherine being born circa 1811-12.
          Anthony and Catherine Dunleavy appear to have arrived at Galena, Illinois, in Jo Daviess County, by at least 1840, as that year's Census for the Miners Districts has an Antony Dunlavy, engaged in agriculture, living at West Galena, and their eldest child Bernard, was born in Illinois in February of that year.
          In 1850, the Dunleavy household in Galena, Illinois, consisted of Anthony, age 35, born in Ireland, occupation laborer, with value of real estate owned valued at $300; his wife Catherine, 35, born in Ireland; and their first two children, Bernard, age 10, born in Illinois, and Thomas, age 5, born in Illinois, with both children attending school within the past year.
          Anthony and Catherine had two more children, twin daughters, Mary Ann and Catherine, who were born in 1851, at Galena, Illinois.
          Anthony Dunleavy evidently died before 1860, as he was now absent in that year's census: the Dunleavy household in Galena in 1860 consisted of Catherine, age 49; and her children Barney, age 20; Thomas, age 15; and Mary Ann and Catharine, both age 9.
          Ten years later, in 1870, the Dunleavy household in Galena consisted of Catherine, age 58, keeping house; daughters Mary A. and Catherine, both age 19 and both listed as domestic servants; and listed as a separate family but living in the same household were Catherine's son Bernard Dunleavy, age 30, occupation laborer, and his bride, Ellen, age 25, keeping house. Bernard Dunleavy and Ellen Garey had married in October 1869. Catherine's other son, Thomas, had married in 1867, to Jane Rooney, and they were living in their own household at Menominee, in Jo Daviess County, Illinois.
          Catherine Dunleavy died on December 1, 1880.*

    Date of death from Michael Hovar's Genealogy Page at http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mhovar&id=I449.

    In 1850, according to the U.S. Census, the Dunleavy household in Galena consisted of Thomas's parents, Anthony, age 35, and Catherine, age 35, and his older brother Bernard, age 10; and Thomas, age 5. By 1860, Thomas's father had died, and the Dunleavy household in Galena in 1860 consisted of his mother Catherine, age 49; brother Barney, age 20; Thomas, age 15; and his sisters, Mary Ann and Catharine, both age 9.

    Thomas Dunleavy married Mary Jane Rooney on February 3, 1867, in Jo Daviess County, Illinois. The marriage ceremony was officiated by the Rev. Wilhelm G. Verhoff, of Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church in Menominee, Illinois.

    Mary Jane Rooney was born in 1840*, in Mount Hope, New Jersey, daughter of Patrick and Mary Rooney, who were both born in Ireland. The Rooney family migrated west, first to the area of Benton, Wisconsin, in Lafayette County, where another child, William, was born, in 1844, and then to a farm at Menominee, Illinois, where they were living by 1850.
    * = Jane was born in 1840, according to her grave marker at Nativity BVM Cemetery, Menominee, Ill.; she was 9 years old at the time of the 1850 U.S. Census; she was born in December 1842 according to the 1900 U.S. Census; the 1920 census, the year in which she died, and her obituary both state she was 80 years old, placing her year of birth circa 1840. Her age as given in other censuses indicate she would have been born circa 1842-1843.

    In 1850, according to the U.S. Census, the Rooney household in Menominee Township, Jo Daviess County, Illinois, consisted of Patrick Rooney, 35; Mary Rooney, 30; their children Jane, age 9, and William, age 4; and Morris Tallan, 35, born in Ireland.* In 1860, the Rooney household in Menominee Township consisted of Mary Rooney, age 55; Jane, age 18; William age 16; and a farm hand, Morris Taleau (spelling?). Evidently Patrick Rooney had died in the intervening years between the 1850 and 1860 censuses.
    * = This person Morris was listed as a cousin to head of household Thomas Dunleavy in the 1880 census, although it seems he would have been a cousin to the Rooneys as he was living in their household in the earlier censuses. The spelling of his last name is inconsistent in the 1850 through 1880 censuses and the handwriting difficult to decipher: Fallan, Taleon, Sellar, and Talent are given as his last name name according to the transcribers for the censuses as they appear at familysearch.org. Tallan, Taleau, Tellar, Talent are my readings. Born in Ireland, Morris's age as given in the censuses is also inconsistent: according to the 1850 census, he would have been born ca. 1815; in 1860, ca. 1825; and in 1870 and 1880, ca. 1820.

    Thomas Dunleavy was an engineer, working on the Illinois Central, Chicago and North Western, and the Wisconsin Central railroads. On retiring from railroad life, he purchased a farm at Menominee, Illinois.

    Born to Thomas and Jane Dunleavy were William Dunleavy, Thomas Dunleavy, Frank Dunleavy, James Dunleavy, John Dunleavy, and Mary Dunleavy. They also had three other children, two boys and a girl; these children died as infants or young children. Their names do not appear in any of the censuses, but the 1900 and 1910 censuses both have Jane as mother of nine children, six of whom were living, and a newspaper account of Thomas and Jane's fiftieth wedding anniversary also states three children had died. Stella Dunleavy died September 10, 1886, at the age of six months, in Menominee, Jo Daviess County, Illinois*; she was undoubtedly Thomas and Jane's daughter. The boys' names and dates of birth and death are unknown.

    obituary for William Rooney, brother of Jane (Rooney) Dunleavy:
    DIED AT MENOMINEE
    Wm. Rooney Expires at His Home Monday Evening.
          William Rooney, a pioneer resident of Menominee township [in Jo Daviess Co., Ill.], passed away at the home of his sister, Mrs. Thomas Dunlavy, at about 6 o'clock Monday evening [October 22, 1900], after a brief illness caused by strangulated hernia. A surgical operation was performed in the hope of saving his life but without avail. His sufferings were intense but he bore them heroically and with true Christian fortitude.
          Mr. Rooney was born in Grant county [in Wisconsin], near Benton [Benton is actually in Lafayette County, Wis.], fifty-six years ago [in August 1844, according to the 1900 census] but was taken by his parents to Menominee township, this county, where his home has since been. His parents died a number of years ago, leaving him and his sister, Mrs. Dunlavy surviving them. She is now the only member of the family left and she greatly mourns the loss of her brother, who never having married, spent the greater part of his life with her. He was known throughout the community as a quiet, hardworking, unassuming citizen and much respected by all who knew him.
          The funeral will be held from the family residence at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning to St. Mary's Catholic church at 10 o'clock, where requiem mass will be celebrated by Father Paul Halbemeier. Interment will be made in the Catholick cemetery at Sinsinawa Mound.

    from the Tuesday, October 23, 1900, edition of the Galena Daily Gazette, as presented online at http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3186623&id=I622707304. Accessed February 15, 2006.
    Thomas and Jane Dunleavy first made their home in the Rooney household at Menominee, Illinois, which by 1870, consisted of Mary Rooney, age 70, farmer and keeps house; Thomas [Dunleavy, although his surname is not given], age 25; Jane [now Thomas's wife], age 27; Willie [Dunleavy], age 1 [Thomas and Jane's first child]; William Rooney, age 25, farmer; and Morris Tellar.

    By 1880, the Dunleavys were counted as their own household at Menominee, with the household consisting of Thomas, age 34, farmer; his wife, Jane, age 37, keeping house; son William, age 10; son Thomas, age 8; son Frank, age 5; son James, age 3; son John, age 4 months; and cousin, Moris Talent, age 60, born in Ireland, farmer. There was still some overlapping with the Rooney household, which immediately preceded it in the census, as Thomas Dunleavy's relationship to William Rooney was listed as brother-in-law; the Rooney household consisted of William Rooney, now named as head of the household, age 35; and Mary, his mother, age 78, keeping house.

    In 1900, the Dunleavy household at Menominee consisted of Thomas, age 54, farmer; his wife Jane, age 57, married 33 years; son Frank, age 25, farm laborer; son James, age 21, blacksmith; son John, age 20, farm laborer; daughter Mary, age 15, servant; and Jane's brother, William Rooney, age 55, farm laborer.

    In 1907, the Dunleavys moved to Dubuque, Iowa. They were members of the Catholic church, and in Dubuque, they were members of St. Patrick's Parish. In 1910, the Dunleavy household consisted of Thomas, age 60-something [illegible], on his own income; Jane, age 67, married 43 years; and their daughter Mary, age 26, dress maker. The Dunleavys' addresses in Dubuque, as they appear in city directories and newspaper articles, were in 1908 and 1909, 59 22nd St.; in 1915, 2272 Couler (later renamed Central Avenue); in 1917, 1328 Jackson; and in 1920, 246 20th St (Rhomberg).

    Thomas and Jane celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on February 3, 1917, at their home in Dubuque, with a gathering of family and friends.

    CELEBRATE GOLDEN WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
          Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Dunleavy celebrated their golden wedding anniversary at their home, 1328 Jackson street, Saturday, February 3rd. Fifty years ago that day the happy couple were united in marriage by the Rev. Father Verhoff, of Menominee, Ill. Nine children were born to bless this union, three of whom are dead. The surviving six children are Frank, James, William, and Mrs. Thomas Baker, of this city, John of Menominee, Ill., and Thomas, of St. Paul, Minn.
          Mr. Dunleavy was employed as engineer on the Amboy division of the Illinois Central railroad and later became engineer on the North Western railroad, which position he held for thirty years. He then settled on a farm at Menominee, Ill., where he remained until 12 years ago when he moved to Dubuque.
          The immediate friends and the family were present to congratulate them on this memorable occasion, and they received many handsome gifts.

    Children of Thomas and Jane (Rooney) Dunleavy:

    1. William P. Dunleavy was born on March 15, 1868* in Menominee, Illinois, son of Thomas and Jane (Rooney) Dunleavy. William Dunleavy married Catherine Keefe on September 26, 1895, in Menominee, Illinois, with Jas. F. Berube officiating the Catholic ceremony. Catherine Keefe was born in 1873 in the Irish Free State; her father was born in England and her mother in the Irish Free State. Catherine came to this country in 1894.
            William and Catherine Dunleavy lived in Dubuque, Iowa, where they were members of St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Catherine was also a member of the church's Rosary Society, the Ladies Catholic Benevolent Society, and the Women's Catholic Order of Foresters. Available city directories list William's occupations as a teamster, in 1899-1900; a driver for Wertin Soda Water Company, in 1908; driver for John Mayerle, in 1909; worker at Brunswick-Balke-Collender Company, in 1915; worker for Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railroad shops, in 1918 and 1921-22; and employed by William Mentz, in 1925. In 1920, the U.S. Census listed William's occupation as a motorman for a street car company, and in 1930, he worked for a sash and door company. Their niece, Myrtle Dunleavy, John's daughter, was living with William and Catherine at the time of the 1930 census; the dwelling also included James Dunleavy, William's brother.
      * = The date of March 15 for William's birth comes from an obituary for him that appeared in the Dubuque Telegraph Herald; the year of birth as given in the obituary was 1869. 1868 is his year of birth as given it appears on his gravestone. According to the 1910 census, he was born in March 1871.
      ** = Catherine Keefe's year of birth is 1873 as it appears on her gravestone; according to the 1910 census, she was born in June 1876, but the 1930 census has her age as 56, which agrees with the birth year being 1893.

      William P. Dunleavy, 70, of Dubuque, Iowa, died at his residence Friday morning, October 6, 1939, following a lingering illness. He had been retired for a number of years. The body was removed to the Strueber Funeral Home in Dubuque, from where the funeral was held Monday morning, October 9, to St. Patrick's Church in Dubuque. The mass of requiem was offered at 9 o'clock by the Right Rev. Monsignor P.J. Coffey, pastor. Monsignor Coffey delivered the funeral sermon and officiated at the burial in St. Mary's [Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary] Cemetery at Menominee, Illinois.
            Pallbearers were George Hendricks, Nick Paradiso, Frank Weidenbacher, Frank Genthi, Arthur Duggan, and Washington Matthews.
            Mr. Dunleavy was survived by his wife, the former Catherine Keefe; his sister, Mrs. Mary Baker, of Dubuque, Ia.; his brothers, James Dunleavy, of Dubuque, Ia., and John Dunleavy, of Menominee, Ill.; and several nieces and nephews.

Edward Reier, assistant pastor of St. Mary's church in Galena, Illlinois, officiated at the burial in the Nativity BVM Cemetery in Menominee, Illinois.
            Mrs. Dunleavy was survived by a brother-in-law, John Dunleavy, of Dubuque, Ia., and a number of nieces and nephews.

    2. Thomas A. Dunleavy was born on October 7, 1872, in Menominee, Illinois, son of Thomas and Jane (Rooney) Dunleavy. Thomas was a blacksmith by trade. Thomas Dunleavy married Margaret Murray on April 3, 1894, in Dubuque, Iowa. Margaret Murray was born July 14, 1867, in Sinsinawa, Wisconsin, daughter of Lawrence and Esther (White) Murray.
            In 1900 Thomas and Margaret Dunleavy were living at Rock Island, Illinois. They had one daughter, Gladys Dunleavy, born in 1895.
            Thomas and Margaret Dunleavy divorced. Thomas Dunleavy subsequently married Anna [?], while Margaret (Murrray) Dunleavy married Louis W. Rahn.
            In 1917 and 1920, Thomas Dunleavy was living in St. Paul, Minnesota, according to newspaper accounts.
            A 1921 Dubuque city directory and a 1923 directory list Thomas Dunleavy, who worked for Brunswick-Balke-Collender Company, and wife Anna living on W. 4th St.; and a 1925 directory lists a T. Dunleavy, who worked for Brunswick-Balke-Collender Company, living at 31 E. 12th St. Circa 1932, Thomas and Anna Dunleavy moved to Rock Island, Illinois.

      Thomas A. Dunleavy, 65, former resident in the Dubuque, Iowa, vicinity, died at his home in Rock Island, Illinois, Sunday afternoon, March 27, 1938, at 3 o'clock. The funeral was held from the Strueber Funeral home to the Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Menominee, Illinois, Thursday morning, March 31, at 9 o'clock.

            She was a member of St. Joseph’s church, the Royal Neighbors of America, and the Womans Relief Corps. She had married Louis William Rahn on February 1, 1906, at Davenport, Iowa. Louis Rahn was born on July 6, 1873, son of John and Pauline (Black) Rahn, of Edford, Henry County, Illinois.

      In 1940, Anna Dunleavy was living in Rock Island, Illinois, with occupation of house cleaning for a priest's residence.

      Child of Thomas and Margaret (Murray) Dunleavy:

      DEATH IN THE MINES.
      FRANK FITZPATRICK KILLED.
      Hurled to His Death Down a Shaft Fifty Feet in Depth.
      Frank Fitzpatrick, a well known citizen of Galena, and a former member of the police force, was instantly killed this morning in a mine which he was operating one mile from the city on the Millbrig road. He fell down a shaft fifty feet in depth. His two young sons were alone with him at the time of the accident. The accident was due to a faulty knot in the windlass rope, which allowed the hook by which it held the hoising tub to slip.
            The accident occurred at 8 o'clock just as the unfortunate man was descending the shaft to begin his day's labor. The land [where the mine is located] belongs to T. B. [Thomas B.] Hughlett and the mine was owned conjointly by J. N. [John N.] Crumbacker and Mr. Fitzpatrick and was operated by them and Mr. Fitzpatrick's two sons. The shaft was opened about two years ago, and is now sunk fifty feet, with a drift extending into the hill at the bottom.
            Mr. Fitzpatrick had been sick since last Thursday and was still indisposed when he started out to work this morning, against his wife's remonstrance. When they reached the shaft the younger son, Joseph, was let down and then the tub was raised for Mr. Fitzpatrick to descend. He put several light timbers, for trackage, in the tub and then got in himself, without holding to the rope. The elder son then started to turn the windlass but the tub had descended only three feet when the hook escaped from the knot and down the yawning hole shot the tub with its fated passenger. About twenty feet down a thick ledge extends out and here the shaft takes a sloping turn of two feet to the west. At this point the horrified boy saw the body of his father pitch from the falling tub and both were lost to view.
            The younger son was already at work at the extremity of the drift when he heard the noise at the shaft and hastened out, to find the body of his father. The boy lifted the body to a sitting posture at the entrance to the drift and signaled his brother to be taken to the surface. Mr. Crumbacker was just approaching the mine about 100 yards away, when he was met by one of the boys who told him of the distressing accident. Mr. Crumbacker went down in the shaft and seeing that all was over with his unfortunate companion, hastened to the city with the news. Several friends of the deceased went out and the body was carried to the surface and then removed to an undertaking establishment down town.
            In a humble home on Gratiot street the news of his death was broken to the widow who is left with five half-grown children to mourn him. His wife was Miss Catherine Dunleavy of this city and they were married twenty years ago. The surviving children are Mamie, John, Joseph, Katie and Annie.

      In 1900, Katherine "Kate" Fitzpatrick, 49, was living in Trivoli Township, Peoria, Illinois, in the household of Geo. W. and Dicey I. Proctor with occupation of cook. Her daughter Anna Fitzpatrick, 17, was living in the preceding household, boarding in the home of John M. and Elizabeth A. Davis. In 1910 Katherine Fitzpatrick, age 59, had returned to Jo Daviess County where she was living with her daughter and son-in-law, Mary F. and Frank Rodden, in Woodbine Township.

      Katherine Fitzpatrick, 62, died at eight o'clock, Friday evening, June 27, 1913, at her home in Galena, Illinois. The funeral was held from the residence of her daughter and son-in-law, Katherine and Elmer Sanderson, with the Rev. K. W. Warren officiating. She was buried in Greenwood Cemetery at Galena.

                  A few minutes later, he continued, he thought he heard a noise at the door and woke enough to see flames out in the yard. He ran downstairs to find Whitsel at the door, badly burned.
                  Bauer awakened the hired man and together they tried to put out the fire. They could see Green still in the blazing car, but were unable to get close to the machine because of the flames.
                  The burning automobile was parked next to the barn, and in an attempt to save the barn, Bauer managed to pull the car away with a tractor. After the flames had burned themselves out, Green's body was removed from the car.
                  Deputy Herman and Wes Bartell, Galena city officer, answered the call from Bauer and investigated. Coroner Charles Bartell, of Warren, and Sheriff Percy Hutchison were also called, along with a physician for Whitsel.
                  Whitsel was taken to the Hazel Green, Wis., hospital where attendants said his condition was "good." He is suffering from second degree burns on both legs and feet, the hospital reported.
                  Coroner Bartell said the inquest into Green's death would be delayed until Whitsel was able to testify. County officials said the survivor of the fire had been unable to make a statement yet, so that details of how the the car caught fire are not known.

            Inquest Into Death Of Galena Man Planned
            Galena, Ill.--An inquest into the death of Russell Green, 23, Galena hunter, who burned to death Tuesday morning in an automobile on the Joe Bauer farm in Rice township, will be held Wednesday or Thursday, according to Jo Daviess county officials.
                  Officials announced they are awaiting the recovery of Willard Whitsel, 24, also of Galena, and Green's companion on the ill-fated hunting trip, who is in a Hazel Green, Wis., hospital suffering with second degree burns on his legs and feet. Officers also expressed the belief that Whitsel may be able to throw some light on the cause of the fire in the car.
                  Green and Whitsel had gone to the Bauer farm Monday night to run three 'coon dogs, and one of the dogs failed to return. The men searched for the dog until about midnight and after a lunch with the Bauers continued the search. Bauer told officials he was awakened about 4 a.m. Tuesday by what sounded like an explosion. He went downstairs and found Whitsel at the door badly burned and the car in flames.

            CORONER'S JURY RULES IN DEATH
            Blast, Fire of Accidental Nature, Daviess Finding
            Galena, Ill.--"Death caused by explosion and fire of accidental nature" was the verdict returned by the coroner's jury which probed the death of Russell Green, young Galenian who died early last Tuesday morning when the car in which he was sleeping was destroyed by fire after an explosion.
                  At the inquest conducted Monday afternoon by Coroner Charles Bartell, of Warren, at the courthouse, 13 witnesses dispelled any doubt of the accidental nature of the World War II veteran's death in the intense heat of the blazing car. It was shown that the explosion which started the fire blew Green's companion from the car.
                  Mr. and Mrs. Joe Bauer, on whose farm in Rice township the tragedy occurred, told of hearing the explosion and arising to find Willard Whitsel at the door in a stunned condition and suffering from bad burns. Green and Whitsel had been training their dogs on the farm during the night.
                  Mrs. Bauer said she went to the neighboring Dittmar home to telephone while Bauer and Fred Green, hired man on the Bauer farm, attempted to rescue Green from the blazing car in which he was trapped.
                  Prevented by intense heat from approaching close enough to reach the perishing hunter, Bauer and Fred Green were able to attach a chain to the burning car and drag it away from a nearby barn to save the structure, imperiled by the flames of the car.
                  Deputy Sheriff George Herman, City Officers Wes Bartell and Ray Tarkett, Sheriff Percy Hutchison, Morticians William Nash and Charles Nadig conributed to the testimony. They each testified that by the time of their arrival at various times following the accident, the car was no longer burning but that Green's body still smouldered; that the condition of the remains showed no other agency than the fire contributed to his death; that the body was in an upright position in the middle of the front seat, and that the body of a dog was in the back seat.
                  Whitsel told of finding himself in a dazed condition and discovering the car in flames. Whitsel banished any suspicion of foul play by his testimony of Green's dozing prior to the explosion.
                  He told the jury that the car contained a permanent type antifreeze purchased at a local filling station the preceding day, thus denying rumors that fuel oil in the cooling system might have been the cause of the explosion, for which he could offer no explanation.
                  Members of the coroner's jury were Roy Bench, foreman, Leo Bohnsach, Arnold Bonadurer, Edward Eldredge, Joseph Willy, and Robert Koempel.

        Galena, Ill. Sept. 10.--Special: Mrs. Wesley Weyandt, 43, living in the east end of town, is near death at her home as the result of an attempted suicide Friday morning at 5:15 o'clock. Mrs. Weyandt drank a quantity of carbolic acid and then set fire to her clothing. She then ran into the room where her eight year old adopted daughter was sleeping, her screams awakening the child.
              The little girl displayed remarkable presence of mind, forced her mother into the kitchen and poured a pail of water over her, then wrapping her up in a bundle of clothing. The girl, when asked how she had known what to do in such an emergency, stated that she "had learned it from her teacher in school."
              The husband of the woman had left for work a short time before the attempted suicide and the woman was alone with the child at the time. Two grown children are living in distant parts of the country. Physicians hold out no chance for the woman's recovery, as she is suffering from terrible burns, internally and externally. No definite motive for the act can be assigned.

        John Weyandt and Bernice subsequently moved to Ohio, where in 1930 they are found living at Genoa, in Clay Township, Ottawa County, Ohio. In 1940, the John Weyandt household in Genoa consisted of John, Bernice, and now Stanley Cashen, whom Bernice had married the year before.

        John W. Weyandt, 87, died on December 21, 1957, in Elmore, Ottawa County, Ohio.

        Note. The Gottfried "Fred" Krippendorf whom Anna Fitzpatrick first married appears to have been married once before, to Maria Streich, on August 19, 1897, in Jo Daviess County, Illinois, at Galena, with Paul Schmidt, a Lutheran minister, officiating. Gottfried Krippendorf was born in Germany in April 1862, according to the 1900 U.S. Census; also according the census, he came to this country in 1880, and his occupation was that of stone mason. Maria Streich had come to the United States in 1897 for the purpose of marrying Gottfried Krippendorf. They lived in Elizabeth, Jo Daviess County, Illinois. How Gottfried and Maria's marriage ended is not known, but in 1903, Gottfried Krippendorf had married Anna Fitzpatrick.
              Gottfried and Anna's marriage appears to have ended by 1905; in that year, a Gottfried "Fred" Krippendorf, age 42, born in Germany, turns up in the Iowa State Census as living in Scott County, Iowa. There Johann G. Krippendorf dies at Davenport, Iowa, on May 28, 1915. He was buried two days later. His death record gives his date of birth as April 10, 1862, born in Germany, son of Gottfried and H. (Dennhardt) Krippendorf, with occupation of stone and cement mason, which, of course, corresponds with the information for Fred Krippendorf in the 1900 census.

        The following is a news article from the August 13, 1897, Baltimore American relating the story of Maria Streich coming to America from Germany to marry Gottfried Krippendorf:
        SHE BRAVED THE OCEAN.
        ROMANCE OF A GERMAN GIRL AND HER AMERICAN LOVER
        Pretty Maria Streich Comes All the Way From the Fatherland to Wed an Illinois Man She Has Never Seen--Detained at the Immigrant Office Pending His Arrival--A Courtship Conducted by Letter--Her Lover Has Been Sent For--News of the Mariners.
        Among the passengers on board the German steamer Willehad, which arrived on Wednesday last, was a pretty, blue-eyed, flaxen-haired German girl of twenty-two summers, who had braved the ocean voyage at the behest of a lover, whom she has never seen, and is now detained at Locust Point, anxiously awaiting for him to put in an appearnace and claim the bride whom he knows only through the loving epistles which have passed between them.
              Immigrant Commissioner Hennighausen was much impressed by the appearance of the German lassie as she was brought up before Inspector Robinson for examination as to her qualifications to land, and when, through Interpreter Vonderhorst, she made known the romance of her life, Commissioner Hennighausen was more than interested, and gave orders that she should have the best of attention.
              Skilful questioning on the part of Inspector Robinson drew from the girl her story. Her name is Maria Streich, and she came to America to wed Gottfried Krippendorf, a young German from her native land, who lives in Elizabeth, Ill. She has never seen Krippendorf, but, through mutual friends, was introduced by letter, and the formal note of introduction was followed by letters of friendship. Photographs were interchanged, and finally the German youth in the Western city, pining for a helpmate, became enamored of the fair lassie in far-away Germany whom he had never seen. Her bright sparkling missives were answered in letters couched in suggestive language, and one day Gottfried mustered up courage enough to propose marriage.
              He waited the usual number of days for the letter to cross the ocean and bring its answer. The weeks glided by and finally the long-looked-for letter came, making his heart glad by its contents.
              Losing no time, Krippendorf sent money to his betrothed, not only to bring her to America, but also to take her all the way to Elizabeth, Ill.
              Commissioner Hennighausen and Inspector Robinson are yet young, and they sympathized in this little German love story, and tried to strain a point so that the girl would not be compelled to wait here until the arrival of her lover, but the law is specific, and the girl could not be allowed to depart until she went as the wife of the man she had come to marry.
              Krippendorf, all ignorant of the law in the case, and recognizing only the fact that he loved and is loved in return, sent on the money, not doubting the gold would bring his bride with him, and so wasn't here at the pier to receive her.
              She is being made as comfortable as possible, and Messrs. Hennighausen and Robinson have communicated with Krippendorf, telling him to hasten to Baltimore. When he comes Commissioner Hennighausen will have another opportunity to officiate at a Locust Point wedding in the capacity of best man.

        Child of John and Anna (Fitzpatrick) Krippendorf Weyandt:

        • Bernice E. Redfearn was born on February 15, 1917, in Iowa. Her surname of Redfearn appears in both the 1920 and 1930 U.S. censuses. By 1920, she had been taken in and was being raised by John and Anna (Fitzpatrick) Krippendorf Weyandt, of Galena, Illinois. Anna died when Bernice was nine years old, and John Weyandt, with Bernice, returned to his native Ohio, where they lived at Genoa, in Clay County.
                Bernice Redfearn Weyandt married Stanley George Cashen on June 30, 1939, at Trinity United Methodist Church in Genoa, Ohio. Stanley Cashen was born on March 9, 1913, in Ohio, son of George and Mabel (Brinnon) Cashen.
                Stanley and Bernice Cashen lived in Genoa, Ohio. Stanley worked as a welder, and Bernice was assistant postmaster at Genoa for 26 years before retiring in 1976 because of illness. Bernice was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church, Genoa, past president of American Legion Auxiliary Post 324, Genoa, member of the past Presidents' Auxiliary, and member of Tresetta Club.

          Mrs. Bernice E. Cashen, 60, of Genoa, Ohio, died Sunday, June 19, 1977, at Medical College of Ohio Hospital Toledo, Ohio, where she had been a patient for 10 days. Services were held at 10 a.m., Wednesday, June 22, at Robinson Funeral Home in Genoa, with the Rev. Thomas Beckett officiating. Burial was in Clay Cemetery at Genoa.
                She was survived by her husband, Stanley; a son, Larry Cashen, of Walbridge, Ohio; and four grandchildren.

          Stanley G. Cashen, 71, of Genoa, Ohio, died on March 13, 1984, at Pemberville, Ohio. He was buried on March 15, 1984, in Genoa.


      Other Dunleavys* in Jo Daviess County, Illinois, circa 1850:
      The name Dunleavy has been spelled in various sources as Dunlavy, Dunlavey, and Dunleavey. Below the spellings are used as they appear in the source.

      • John Dunlavy, in 1850, was age 70, born in Ireland circa 1780, and was a servant in the household of Orrin Smith at Galena, Illinois, according to the 1850 census.

      • James Dunlavy, in 1850, was age 39, born in Ireland circa 1811, and was a blacksmith living in the household of James Money at Galena, Illinois, according to the 1850 census.

      • Barney Dunlavy, in 1850 was age 37, born in Ireland circa 1813, and was a farmer living in Menominee Township, Jo Daviess County, Illinois, with his wife Martha, age 36, born in Ireland circa 1814; and their children: Catherine, age 10, born in Canada; Anthony, age 8, born in Illinois; Margaret, age 6, born in Illinois; John, age 3, born in Illinois, according to the 1850 census.

      • Bernard Dunleavy married Mary McCormack on June 1, 1851, in Jo Daviess County, Illinois.*
        Source: Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, 1763–1900 at http://www.sos.state.il.us/GenealogyMWeb/marrsrch.html

        This may or not be Barney Dunlavy listed above.

      • Catherine Dunlavey was born in December 1819 in Ireland. According to the 1900 U.S. Census, she came to America in 1845. Catherine Dunlavey married Martin Horan on March 6, 1848, in Jo Daviess County, Illinois. Martin Horan was born in Ireland in 1818, and he came to the United States and Detroit, Michigan, in 1834. Martin settled on a farm in Menominee Township, Jo Daviess County, Illinois, in 1835, and he had 240 acres of land.

        Martin and Catherine Horan had eleven children: Mary A., Michael, Bridget E., Thomas J., Bernard P., Mark P., Martin F., Katie S., James O., Margaret T. and Julia A. By 1878, Martin Horan was the oldest settler living in Menominee Township.

        from the Dubuque, Iowa, Telegraph-Herald, Wednesday, February 25, 1903:
        Horn [sic.]--Catherine, at the family residence in East Dubuque, Feb. 25, at 4:10 a.m., aged 82 years. Funeral Friday at 9 a.m. to Catholic church. Interment in Sinsinawa cemetery. Friends invited to attend.

      It seems likely that at least some of these Dunleavys were related to Anthony Dunleavy, Thomas's father, as well as to one another, but no connections have been made at this time. It is interesting to note that Anthony Dunleavy named his firstborn son Bernard "Barney," and Barney Dunleavy named his firstborn son Anthony; also that Catherine Horan had sons named Thomas and Bernard.
