Note

Michael Rooney is in the 1870 U.S. census of Ward 2, St. Anthony, city of Minneapolis as a laborer. He was 23 - b. about 1847 - in Canada. Alongside him are his sister "Kate," married to William Martin and their two kids and William's brother John, brother Michael, age 23, and perhaps a cousin, Patrick Killeen, age 40, born in Ireland and probably a Civil War soldier, born in Galway according to those records.

Mike never married. He was living with his sister and brother-in-law William Martin and family in the 1875 census of Stearns County, Minnesota.

After the locusts destroyed the crops, he went hunting buffalo in Montana. He lived in Billings for years. Ambrose Rooney said they used to call him "sheep mountain Mike." While he was gone he lent his farm to his sister Catherine and brother-in-law William Martin. He spent his retirement with his brother William in Padua. Cause of death: Auricular fibrillation, cardiac decongestion, prostate hypertrophy.
