His father, a native of Ireland, came to this country in early life and settled first in Clinton, thence removing to Stockbridge, where he became a very successful farmer, buying land until he owned several hundred acres; he gained the confidence and respect of the entire community and died in 1877, honored and esteemed by all who had known him. Of his union with Mary Kern ten children were born, seven of whom survive: Mrs. Martin Stisser of Oneida; Mrs. Philip McCabe; Mrs. William Dailey; Mrs. Daniel Santry; Edward; James of Willow Spring, Mo.; and Andrew of Smithfield.
