Mr. Cornelius Keleher died July 13, 1898, in Minneapolis, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Crow, of heart failure, aged seventy-eight years, four months and fifteen days. he was born in the county of Cork, Ireland, and came to America in 1846, landing in Newburyport, Mass. He afterwards resided in Wisconsin and then came to St. Mary, in this county, in 1856. He was an industrious, hard working man, one who always paid his honest dues and kept his contracts. He was a man of strong will, and had a mind of his own on all subjects. He was at one time prominent in St. Mary town-site affairs, but for many years he had abandoned all ambitions and quietly spent his days with his children and grandchildren. He was the author of a book regarding church affairs, compiled some fifteen years before. His remains were brought to Waseca, taken to the St, Mary Catholic cemetery, and there deposited beside those of his wife, who died many years before.
