MN, probably interred along with Margaret in St Charles / St Michaels RCCem, Bayport MN; the family plot contains 6 graves; 3 are unrecorded (John, Margaret & Nancy are probably interred here) & the other 3 are recorded as occupied by: Theodore Schilling, 1873-1943; Mary-Ann Schilling, 1875-1951 & Martha Haggerty, 1870 (infant death).

In the 1870 National Census for Stillwater Washington Co MN, it is noted that John Haggerty was age 28, "worked in logging", had $800 of personal property, b: Maine & a USA citizen; while Margaret (Grey> was age 24, "keeping house", b: Ireland & who's p: were foreign b:. They had 2 kids: Sarah, age 3, b: ME & Nancy, age 3 months, b: MN.

The 1880 census for Township #125, Traverse Co MN has John Haggerty listed with his family: Margaret (wife), Sarah J, Charles, Mary, John, James & Sarah Gray (sister to Margaret).

He is also noted in the Traverse Co land records, 19 January 1884, along with his brother Frank Haggerty as a "homesteader" with 160 acres in Township 125.

From a fellow internetor: "This section (#29) is in the far western central corner of MN. It is in Traverse County, Arthur Township. Section 29 is about 4 miles east of the town of Browns Valley (pop 804) which is on the continental devide i.e. both the Minnesota and Red Rivers start here, one to the Gulf of Mexico and the other to Hudson Bay. I've never been out there but I think that its about as flat as it can get. The NW portion of Section 29 is now part of a "Waterfown Area."

In the 1900 census, John Haggerty apparently has returned to Stillwater MN from Traverse Co above, was age 58; m: 35 years, b: ME, 1842, parents from Ireland, employed "exploring pinelands", could r/w/speak English, owned his mortgaged house at 1009 South Fourth St, City of Stillwater, Washington Co, MN.

Thomas worked the farm at Ludlow ME, migrated, 1868, to Cambria Co PA, resided there for 4 years, then came to Stillwater MN, 1872. There he established the village of Houlton WI (after Houlton ME, now the villiage of St Joseph WI, just across the St Croix River from Stillwater MN) ) became a retail store, tavern & hotel keeper as well as property and lumber dealer, farmer and Houlton WI's post-master.

From "Red" Haggerty (son of Edmond P Haggerty in the Peter Haggerty Jr line); "Uncle Tom Haggerty originated in Houlton Maine and about more or less emigrated to Wisconsin where he opened up a general merchandise store on the Wisconsin side of the St Croix River and christened the town, that grew up around his store, Houlton. I can still remember him, shorter than our dad and more heavy set, but the same type of mould. Besides the store he was the postmaster also. I do not remember when or how he died but do recall that he turned the store over to E. P. to manage and run it, while still alive. Dad did not do very well. He gave credit to anyone and everyone and finally closed up the business. Shortly after doing so, as I recall, the building burned down, completely."

From Ms Jayne Finnergan Smith a long time resident of Houlton WI: " Our Ggp's Mary Jane Keays and Wm Keays were very good friends of both Tom Haggerty and "old" Ed Haggerty . We grew up thinking that we (the Conway's, my grandparents), the Joyce's and Haggerty's were the only 3 Catholic families in Houlton and later in life we equated ourselves to Houlton what the Kennedy's were to Hyannisport. Yes, I was present in my best Sunday garb to many of your family. I remember Charles in his service uniform coming to visit us during WWII. If you could call me , I have some entertaining stories about the 3 families. My number is: 651-439-5447".
