Robert McCormick, one of the early settlers in Money Creek township who did good pioneer work in civilizing
the wilderness, but who is now passed away, was born in County Cork, Ireland, in 1830. He was a young man when
he came to America and found employment at railroad work in New York State. In 1868 he heard the call of the West
and came to Houston county, Minn., securing wild land in Money Creek township which' he subsequently spent many
years in developing, achieving valuable results. He continued thus actively engaged until within a few years before
his death, when he retired and moved to Rushford in Fillmore county, where he passed away about the year 1910.
Mr. McCormick married Mary Moran, who was born in County Tipperary, Ireland, in 1830, and who is still residing
in Rushford. They were the parents of three children: Mary, Daniel and Robert William.
