Andrew Wright was born in Ballynafeagh, Arboe Parish in County Tyrone Ireland, on August 21, 1842. He died on October 4, 1929 in Jacksonville, Morgan, Ill and is buried in Ashland Cemetery, Cass County, Ill.
Obituary published October 11, 1929 in “The Ashland” Cass County, Illinois USA, Front Page - Andrew Wright, one of this community’s most substantial citizens and a longtime resident of Cass County, peacefully passed away at 7:50 o’clock last Friday morning at Our Savior’s hospital in Jacksonville, at the age of 88 years, 1 Month and 18 days. Mr. Wright had been a patient at the hospital for two weeks just before his death. Earlier in the year he was a patient there, but was able to leave it for the summer months. It is the writer’s good fortune to have known him long and well, and we him to esteem him more highly as the years passed by. We miss his friendly greeting and genial presence. He was a man of generous impulses, and never forgot the hospitable ways of the pioneer, nor passed a friend in need. Mr. Wright was born August 21, 1841 [sic 1842], in Tyrone County, Ireland. As a young man he came to the United States, lived for a time in Connecticut and Later in Philadelphia for a year. Then he came to Illinois and located on a farm near Alexander, where he had friends known from his boyhood days. On Jan.22, 1872 in Alexander neighborhood, he was married to Miss Sarah A. Baxter, who passed away in September, 1924. After living in the Alexander neighborhood for a period of years they removed to a farm near Murrayville and in 1888 their place of residence was changed to Cass County on a farm west of Ashland, which thereafter remained the family home. Mr. Wright was a successful farmer and always manifested a deep interest in community affairs. He was active in the Republican Party and in 1902 had the party nomination for the sheriff of Cass County. Mr. Wright was accounted one of the most successful citizens of Cass County: a man of strict integrity he had the faculty of making friends and keeping them. He lived a long and useful life and his final illness was due to the infirmity of age. Mr. Wright is survived by one daughter and four sons: Mrs. Jesse McNeely, Philadelphia, Ill.; Leonard G. Wright, Beardstown; Thomas H. Wright, Maroa; Joseph A. Wright and Nathaniel W. Wright, Ashland. The oldest son, James Wright, died in 1924. The funeral was held at 2 o’clock Sunday afternoon at the Reynold’s Chapel in Jacksonville. Rev. W. C. Meeker, pastor of Westminister [sic] Presbyterian Church, conducted the services. Two solos were given by Mrs. Wm. Barr Brown, “Abide with me”, and “The City Four Square,” with Mrs. Ralph Hutchinson at the organ. Flowers were in charge of Mrs. Lancaster of Virginia. The bearers were four sons, Leonard G., Thomas H., Joseph A. and Nathaniel W. Wright: Jesse McNeely, son-in-law and James R. Baxter, a nephew. Following the services at Jacksonville, the body was brought here and laid to rest in the Ashland cemetery.
|Bridget FrIel emigrated from Ireland and lived in Philadelphia, PA. I have not been able to identify her date of emigration or ship. Her parents were Barney (proper name Jacobus/James) Friel, a gardener and Bridget (Margarita/Margaret) McDevitte (or McDaid) a housekeeper. At the time of her marriage to Edward Connolly (Connelly) the marriage application lists her address as City Line and 12th Street, Philadelphia. Bridget married Edward Connolly on 31 May 1916 at Holy Angels Catholic Church, Philadelphia. The church register list her baptism as being Doneloop, Tyrone on 12 October 1890 [Doneyloop RC Chapel is actually not in Co. Tyrone, but just across the county boundary in Dunnaloob, Co. Donegal. The civil parish is Urney which lies in both Tyrone and Donegal; therefore, it is possible she was born in Co. Tyrone but baptised in Co. Donegal]. There is also a document indicating she was born 12 October 1891. The family had 3 children: Margaret Theresa b. 1917, Edward Patrick b. 1918 and James Michael b. 1921.

|James Mulgrew is a man who has, by his own untiring energy and industry, accumulated a competency, and commands the respect of all who honor a successful man. He was born in Duncannon (sic), County Tyrone, Ireland, June 6, 1843 and is a son of James and Catherine (Gough) Mulgrew. His father was a native of the same town and was born in 1806. He pursued the calling of a farmer on a rented farm, and also transacted an agent’s business for the queen’s warehouse, being a good business man, highly respected by all classes. In religion, he was a member of the Roman Catholic church. He died on Christmas day, 1870, and his wife (mother) is now living on the old homestead, in her seventy-fifth year.
James Mulgrew was reared on a farm, and received his education in the common schools of his native town. He learned the carpenter’s trade, and in 1866 he came to America, putting his feet on American soil May 1st of that year, and shortly afterward located in Silver Creek, where he was employed on the construction train on the L. S. & M. S. R. R. He worked fifteen years on this train, being steadily promoted until in 1881, he was given full control. It is his pride that he never had a pair of trucks leave the track in the twenty-two years he spent on that train. While in Indiana in 1888, he resigned his position, and left the employ of the road December 10th of that year. Since then he has lived on his farm in Hanover, one mile from Silver Creek, where he has opened a rock quarry, and finds a quick and ready market for all the paving-stones and material maximizing which he can quarry. He also has [a] good-sized tract of land devoted to grape culture. In National elections he votes the Democrat ticket, but in local elections he is independent, voting always for the man he considers the best qualified for the office in question. Religiously he is a member of the Roman Catholic church. He has two brothers, Barney and John engaged in gold mining in Montana.
James Mulgrew was married, in 1866, to Margaret L. Mulgrew, daughter of Peter Mulgrew of Duncannon (sic), Ireland, and they have three children, one son and two daughters, John F., Mary E., and Margaret S., all attending school at Silver Creek.
