He migrated in 1899 at Sisseton, Roberts, South Dakota. He lived in 1900 at Andover South Twp, Day, South Dakota. He was employed by Croal, J. P. publisher of The Courant (weekly newspaper)
in 1909 at South Dakota State Business Directory, Sisseton, Roberts, South Dakota. In 1915 John P. Croal is postmaster of Sisseton and the editor of the Courant, the leading paper of Roberts county. His birth occurred near Milwaukee, Wisconsin, May 29, 1860, and his parents were Andrew and Anna (Gormanly) Croal, both natives of Ireland, the former born in 1820 and the latter in 1835. They emigrated to the United States with their respective parents, both families settling in Connecticut, where Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Croal grew to maturity. Their marriage, however, occurred in Milwaukee in 1857. The father located in that city in 1859 or 1860 and fired the first engine in the shops of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad there. He was for nineteen years a sergeant on the Milwaukee police force and made an enviable record for efficient and conscientious performance of duty. In 1880 he went to Grant county, South Dakota, and filed on a claim. The following year he was joined by his family and he continued to reside there and in Milbank until his demise, which occurred at the latter place in 1903. He had survived his wife for twenty-two years, as she died in 1881. He was a communicant of the Roman Catholic church. His father, John Croal, passed away in Milwaukee at the advanced age of ninety-one years. Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Croal were the parents of eleven children, eight of whom are still living, as follows: Mrs. Kate Eastman, living in Seattle, is the widow of O. N. Eastman, who was traveling auditor for the Empire Elevator Company at the time of his demise. John P. is the next in order of birth. James, who resides at Fargo, is a conductor on the Northern Pacific Railroad, with which he has been connected since 1886. Mary is the wife of L. M. Kaercher, the proprietor of the Whetstone Milling Company at Milbank. He is quite well known in political circles and in 1890 was a member of the state legislature. Theresa gave her hand in marriage to W. W. Wilson, of Milbank, who for thirteen years has served as janitor of the public schools. Francis A. has for seventeen years been buyer and hater auditor for the Empire Elevator Company with residence at Milbank. Anna is the wife of Dr. Thomas Hicks, of Milbank, who for several years has been state veterinarian. Thomas, a resident of Las Vegas, New Mexico, is a conductor on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad. John P. Croal received his education in Milwaukee graduating from high school in 1876. He learned the printer's trade in that city and later became foreman and make-up on the Christian Statesman. In 1881 he removed to Milbank, South Dakota, and subsequently entered the employ of W. M. Downie at Big Stone City, the owner of the Herald. Mr. Croal worked on that paper for some time but the following fall began teaching school. He received the first teacher's certificate issued in Milbank, Grant county, and in the summer helped build the first schoolhouse in Geneseo township, in which he taught in the fall. Jeremiah George was at that time county superintendent of schools. Subsequently Mr. Croal followed the profession of teaching in Day county and at the same time filed on a claim in that county. In 1899 he located in Sisseton, moving the Courant which he started in 1893, there from Wilmot, and which he has since owned and edited. The paper has a circulation of twelve hundred and is recognized as a valuable advertising medium by the local businessmen. The printing plant is housed in its own building which Mr. Croal purchased a number of years ago. The shop is well equipped and in addition to printing the Courant does considerable job work. Mr. Croal is a member of the State Press Association and has attended all of the conventions of that body for the past fifteen years. He takes an active part in the work of the association and is held in high esteem in journalistic circles of South Dakota. The Courant is democratic in politics and has done much to secure the success of that party. Mr. Croal was married in Day county in 1888 to Miss Mary Prunty, a daughter of P. H. Prunty, of Appleton, Wisconsin. She was educated in the Appleton high school and was engaged in teaching in Day county when she made the acquaintance of Mr. Croal. To their union have been born three children. Elizabeth is a graduate of the Sisseton high school, also took a course at the Aberdeen State Normal School and attended the State University of South Dakota at Vermillion for two years. She taught for three years in the primary department of the Sisseton schools and for the past three years has taught in Montana. Clinton graduated from the Sisseton high school and subsequently took a law course in the State University at Vermillion, from which he was graduated in 1911 with the degree of LL. B. He was admitted to the bar when only nineteen and a half years old and is now connected with Porter & Grantham, general solicitors for North and South Dakota for the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad. Vincent C., the youngest of the children, is in school. Mr. Croal is a communicant of the Roman Catholic church and fraternally is connected with the Knights of Columbus, the Improved Order of Red Men, the Woodmen and the Fraternal Order of Eagles, in all of which he has passed through all of the chairs. For three terms he was worthy president of the Eagles. He is a leader in local democratic circles, is its state central committeeman and has held a number of offices. For six years he has been president of the board of education, has been school clerk, and for two years held the office of city justice. For eight years he was United States commissioner but resigned that office to become postmaster of Sisseton, which position he has held since the 1st of May, 1915. In all of his official connections he has proved efficient and conscientious and has thus added to the high esteem in which he is generally held. He has carried to successful completion all that he has undertaken and is recognized as a man of energy, determination and ability.6
