  • GEORGE HORKAN. Including his sons, who are now prosperous agriculturists, George Horkan, living retired at Reedsburg, represents a family which for three generations has been identified with the improvement, development and cultivation of Sauk County lands. The family have proved industrious and valuable citizens in every sense of the word. More than seventy years have come and gone since the name was first introduced into Sauk County annals, and they especially figure in the early history of Dellona Township. When the family moved to this region Mr. George Horkan was a child of about six years. He was born in Toronto, Canada, December 25, 1840, and was a Christmas gift to his parents, Peter and Bridget Horkan. His parents were both natives of Ireland and moved to Toronto, Canada, a short time before the birth of their son George. Peter Horkan kept a hotel in Toronto a couple of years and then moved to a farm near Port Iope, Ontario. From there he went to Illinois and had a farm in that state. In 1846 Peter Horkan, Patrick Mulligan and William Recliff all walked from their Illinois community to Sauk County, Wisconsin.
    After pursuing their investigations for some time they finally located upon land in Dellona Township near the north line of the county. Peter Horkan acquired a tract of Government land and it was one of the first tracts taken up by a permanent settler in that township. After bringing his family here he lived through all the hardships and changing conditions of the frontier settler. He saw the land which he had taken up gradually improved and developed into a fine farm and at the same time the region about him was opened up and gradually peopled with substantial settlers. Peter Horkan died at his home in Dellona Township about thirty-eight years ago and his widow subsequently removed to Reedsburg and has now been deceased about twenty years. They were the parents of six children: George; Ellen; James, deceased; Mary; W. Horkan, who. lives in Duluth; and John, who occupies the old homestead. George Horkan had limited opportunities to gain an education when a boy, since the early schools of Dellona Township were largely supported on the subscription plan and their terms lasted for only a few months each winter. He found plenty of employment in the woods or in the fields of his father's farm and after reaching his majority he acquired part of the old homestead and his enterprise enabled him to add to his possessions there until he owned 160 acres. This farm is now a complete and model place and is occupied and managed by his son James. Mr. Horkan also cleared up and improved another tract of land and later bought the Riley farm of 163 acres in the same township, where his son Frank now lives.
    After nearly fifty years of continuous work as a farmer Mr. Horkan
    came to Reedsburg in 1909 and has since lived retired at 446 North
    Park Street. He is the owner of considerable city property, including
    three houses and lots in Reedsburg. He began life with very little except his own industry and has accomplished a satisfying material independence. For years he plowed his land with oxen and he bought and paid for his first yoke of oxen by cutting hoop poles. In politics Mr. Horkan is a republican. At one time he was chairman of the township board of Dellona Township. He and his family are active members of the Catholic Church. In January, 1871, he married Miss Bridget Davenport, who was born in the State of Vermont May 18, 1850, a daughter of Stephen and Mary (MacNemara) Davenport. During the early fifties the Davenport family came out to Wisconsin and located in Juneau County, where her parents spent the rest of their worthy and useful lives. Her father died in 1882 and her mother in 1889, and both were about seventy-two years old when they passed away. Mrs. Horkan was the fifth in a family of six children, the others being: Patrick, of Baraboo; Mary, wife of John Scully, of Juneau County; James and John, deceased; and Michael, deceased. While Mr. Horkan's material achievements have been exceedingly creditable, he and his good wife deserve all added praise for the twelve children who came into their household and most of whom have grown to stalwart manhood and gentle womanhood. James W., the oldest, was born November 4, 1871, and is playing the part of an active, and progressive farmer on the old farm. By his marriage to ta, Annetta, Glenn, George T., Fern and Agnes. John Henry, the second son, was born March 25, 1873, and is a resident of the State of Nevada. Frank Edward, born May, 18, 1874, has the farm where his father resided until he retired and moved to Reedsburg. His wife's maiden name was Catherine Welch. They have no children. Mary E., the oldest daughter, was born February 4, 1876, and by her marriage to Edward Donahue, of Dellona Township, is the mother of 'seven children, Mary Elizabeth, Charles, Ann, Grace, Helen and Edward and Eleanor, twins. Ellen Agnes, born February 23, 1877,
    is now deceased. By her marriage to Nels Winney she was the mother of two children, Helen, who lives with her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Horkan, and Alice Thelma, deceased. Delia H., born October 27, 1878, is living in Kansas City, Missouri, unmarried. Stephen Joseph, whose home is in Baraboo, married Theresa Hayes, of Dellona Township, and their two sons are Edward and Donald. George Thomas, born October 27, 1881, is a merchant at Reedsburg, and by his marriage to Lena Welch has a child, Mary. Michael Austin was born June 14, 1883, and died when a child in 1890. Caroline, born August 7, 1885, is a milliner and is now located at Sterling, Illinois. Theresa, born March 24, 1888, is a teacher at Wonewoc, Wisconsin. Catherine, the youngest of the twelve children, was born May 27, 1889, and is still at home with her parents in Reedsburg.
