On October 7, 1908 Willam James Rooney came from Venosta, Province of Quebec, Canada (it actually says "Penosta, P.Q., Canada") where he was visiting his mother, Mary A. Rooney. He was going to join his Uncle J.P. Rooney in Virginia, Minnesota.
William James Rooney's WWI draft registration card in June 1917 lists his employer in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin (works with a steam shovel) but his home address as Virginia, Minnesota, his mother dependent on him. In addition to his uncle, his second cousin, James Dennis Rooney, is also there.
There is a William Rooney, birth unknown, who died Oct. 21, 1921 in Billings, Montana, buried in the Mountview Cemetery. There is no evidence that this is the same or a different person.
The online "Milne family tree" has this William James Rooney's death date as October 11, 1949, but without location or any documentation. Their birth date is two years sooner.
