Father*Patrick Mehan d. b 1845
Mother*Elizabeth Hughes d. 1875
Life EventDateDescription
BirthNovember 1833George Mehan was born in November 1833 at Meath, Ireland.
He was the son of Patrick Mehan and Elizabeth Hughes.
MarriageSeptember 1861George Mehan married Mary Byrne, daughter of John Byrne and Bridget Royal, in September 1861.
  • In 1906 GEORGE MEHAN is one of the well known pioneer citizens of the county and is the owner of a well improved farm in the town of Henrietta. He was born in County Meath, Ireland, in November, 1833, and is a son of Patrick and Elizabeth (Hughes) Mehan, the former of whom passed his entire life in Ireland. In 1845 his widow came with her children to America, making the long and wearisome voyage on a sailing vessel and landing in New York city. In 1846 they came westward and located in Lake county, Ill., where they remained three years, at the expiration of which they came to Richland county, Wis., settling in section 23, town of Henrietta, where they secured a tract of government land, the same being densely timbered. They made due preparation for comfort according to the pioneer standard, erecting a log house and then beginning to clear the land; the house is still standing and is in a fair state of preservation, being one of the landmarks of the early days. The devoted mother continued to reside on this homestead until her death, which occurred in 1875. She became the mother of six children, one of whom died young, in Ireland. Five accompanied her to America, namely: John, who died in the state of Washington, having been a farmer by vocation; Eliza and Patrick are likewise deceased; James died in the state of Washington; and George is the subject of this sketch. The last mentioned attended the parochial schools in his native land, having been thirteen years of age at the time of the family immigration to the United States and thereafter having slight opportunity to attend school, as he was reared in the midst of the forests of Richland county and worked assidiously from his boyhood days. He initiated his independent career when nineteen years of age, doing much clearing of land for others. In February, 1864, he showed his loyalty to the land of his adoption, by enlisting in defense of the Union, becoming a private in Company A, Fifty-second Wisconsin volunteer infantry. He went with his command to Benton Barracks, St. Louis, Mo., later being in service at Kansas City, Fort Leavenworth and in Arkansas, taking part in several spirited skirmishes and doing much scouting. He served until the close of the war, receiving his honorable discharge in August, 1865. About 1862 Mr. Mehan bought forty acres of wild land in section 23, town of Henrietta, and he improved the place and continued to reside on the same until 1891, when he removed to his present homestead, which comprises 160 acres, of which about eighty acres are under cultivation. He has been successful as a farmer and has ever retained the confidence and good will of the people of his community. He is a Republican in his political proclivities and both he and his wife are communicants of the Catholic church. In September, 1861, Mr. Mehan was united in marriage to Miss Mary Byrne, who was born in County Cavan, Ireland, a daughter of John and Bridget (Royle) Byrne, who came to America in 1843, when Mrs. Mehan was twelve years of age. Her father had been a farmer and stock shipper in Ireland. The sailing vessel on which the family took passage was the "Lord Saunders," and the same was partially wrecked en route, nine weeks having been passed on the ocean. They landed in New Orleans and a year later removed to Fairfield county, O., where they remained until 1859, when they came to Richland county, Wis., settling in Westford township, where Mr. Byrne reclaimed a good farm, and there passed the remainder of his life. His widow died in Sauk county. Of their eight children Mrs. Mehan is the eldest; Alice is the wife of James Giblin, of Sauk county; Bridget is the wife of Daniel O'Hara, of Spaulding, Neb; Francis is a farmer in Sauk county, Wis; Ann is the wife of Frank Byrne, and they reside in Kansas; Ellen lives at Ironton, Sauk county; Catherine died in Ohio; and Philemon died before the immigration to America. To Mr. and Mrs. Mehan have been born six children: Elizabeth Ann is the wife of John Slaney, mentioned in this publication; Mary Alice and Bridget are deceased; John is a traveling salesman and resides in Baraboo, Wis; and George and Jane remain at the parental home.
