Biography of John Cunneen


Cunneen, John, Buffalo, was born near Ennis, Ireland, May 18, 1848. He came to America alone when but fourteen years of age, and like many others of his nationality, embraced the rich opportunities here afforded to rise in the world by dint of industry and talent. He obtained his elementary education in private schools in Ireland, and after coming to the United States attended for a time the district schools and Albion Academy. Having secured all the preliminary training his limited means could afford, he settled down to the study of law and was duly admitted to practice in January, 1874, and opened an office at Albion, where he practiced for sixteen years. In 1890 he sought a wider field for the exercise of his legal talents, and settled in Buffalo, where he became associated with Hon. William F. Sheehan, subsequently lieutenant-governor, Hon. Charles F. Tabor, attorney-general of this State, and his present law partner, under the firm name of Tabor, Sheehan, Cunneen & Coatsworth. In 1894 he became the senior member of the firm of Cunneen & Coatsworth, his present firm. His well.merited success gained at Albion has followed him to Buffalo, where he has been highly successful and enjoys a lucrative practice. He has appeared in many of the most important causes in Erie county during the last five years, and is recognized as an honorable lawyer of marked ability. He was married, January 26, 1876, to Elizabeth A. Bass of Albion.
