     JOHN SLANEY is a native of the town of Henrietta, this county, and is now one of its representative farmers and stock-growers, also being a member of one of the well known pioneer families of the county. He was born on the homestead farm, Dec.15, 1856, and is a son of John and Bridget (Mulcahy) Slaney, who were born and reared in County Cork, Ireland, where their marriage was solemnized, and where the father followed agricultural pursuits. In 1851 he immigrated with his family to America, making the voyage on a sailing vessel, which was seven weeks in completing the trip. They landed in New York city, and thence removed to Mercer county, Penn., where he entered the employ of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. In 1855 he removed with his family to Richland county, Wis., where he secured forty acres of government land, in section 23, town of Henrietta, the tract being covered with heavy timber. He put up a log house and stable on the place and began the work of reclaiming his land, but he lived only five years after coming to the county, having been killed in February, 1860, while assisting in a chopping-bee at the farm of a neighbor. His wife long survived him and resided with her children until her death, which occurred Apr. 14, 1901. Both were devout communicants of the Catholic church and in politics he voted the Democratic ticket. They had seven children: Thomas was murdered, near Dallas, Tex., many years ago; Morris resides in Milwaukee and had been an engineer on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad for the past quarter of a century; the subject of this sketch was the next in order of birth; Catherine died in childhood, in Pennsylvania; Andrew J. is an engineer on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad and resides in the city of Milwaukee; Mary is a Sister of St. Shepherd, Milwaukee; and Patrick is a farmer of Henrietta township. John Slaney, to whom this review is dedicated, received limited educational advantages in his youth and he aided in reclaiming the home farm, where he was reared to maturity. As a young man he was employed for varying intervals in Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois, and he was fireman on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad for nearly three years. In 1891 he was married and shortly afterward he located on his present fine homestead farm, having purchased forty acres of the same - the McCarthy farm - five years previously and having since added to the same until he has a total of 249 acres, in sections 22 and 23. He has cleared and placed under cultivation about 100 acres. In 1889 he erected his substantial and commodious brick house and in 1899 he built his large and substantial barn, also having erected other requisite buildings for the care of stock and produce. He makes a specialty of the stock-growing department of his farm enterprise, raising a large number of Shropshire sheep, and Poland-China swine, besides cattle and horses. He served as clerk of his school district, No. 4, for eighteen years, was school supervisor two years, and was chairman of the town board four years. He gives his support to the Democratic party, and both he and his wife are prominent members and communicants of St. Patrick's Catholic church, being active in parish work; he served several years as treasurer of the church. Apr. 14, 1891, was solemnized the marriage of Mr. Slaney to Miss Elizabeth A. Mehan, who was born and reared in the town of Henrietta, being a daughter of George Mehan, of whom individual mention is made on another page of this work. To Mr. and Mrs. Slaney have been born eight children, whose names, with respective dates of birth, are as follows: Andrew, Aug. 9, 1892; Mary E. and unnamed infant, twins, Dec. 23, 1893, the latter dying soon after birth; Bridget, born in June, 1896, died in the same year; Elizabeth, Apr. 21, 1897; Catherine, June 16, 1898; John George, Mar. 23, 1901; and Clara Agnes, Nov. 3, 1903.
