John Hurley, a native of Ireland, was born in 1836. Came to America in 1849 with his parents. After a short
stay in New York, Pennsylvania and Illinois, came to St Paul and made a claim of two hundred and forty acres in
what is now West St. Paul. After the survey, he purchased his present place. His father died at the advanced age
of seventy-three years, and his aged mother still lives, having attained the age of seventy seven years. Mr. Hurley
married, in 1852, Mary O'Brien, who has borne him seven children: Elizabeth, Ellen M., Mary A., John J., Dennis
J., Patrick T. and Eugene M.
