TOWNS AND VILLAGES

 

Greene county is well dotted with villages that have been made possible by the advent of railways, the necessities of the people and the shrewd calculations of men who saw more money for themselves in a farm platted into town lots and covered with buildings than in an ordinary quarter section acreage under best cultivation. There are ten post offices in the county at present: four on the line of the M. & St. L. Railway, Rippey, Grand Junction, Dana and Paton: five on the line of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway, Cooper, Jefferson, Farlin, Churdan and Adaza; and Scranton, located on the Chicago & Northwestern Railway (as are also Jefferson and Grand Junction) on the west side of the county. Twenty years ago there were nine post offices. Surry has lost its place on the map, and Farlin and Adaza are towns born since 1890. Angus, a once prosperous coal-mining town of 3,700 people, located in Boone county on the border of Greene, is now a hamlet with less than a hundred people, the mines having been exhausted.

GRAND JUNCTION

Two years after the completion of the Cedar Rapids & Missouri River Railway through Greene county, a north and south railroad was built from Keokuk to Fort Dodge, passing through the east side of the county. It soon became evident that at the intersection of these two roads there would be a desirable location for a town. The "lay of the land" was discouraging for during a wet season fully half the surface was under water, and for a time after the site was established, muskrat houses were as numerous as human habitations. However, when the fact of a town at this point--to be called Grand Junction--was assured, there was eager competition among the owners of land adjoining the two railroads. "Central Grand Junction" was laid out by Hager and Sons and Percival & Hatton, of Des Moines. Howe, a division superintendent, and Estabrook, roadmaster, laid out "Grand Junction." Herron & Kelley of Pittsburgh, Pa., laid out "South Grand Junction," and Seward Smith, of Des Moines, followed with "West Grand Junction." The town includes, according to limits at present established, parts of sections thirty-two and thirty-three, township, eighty-four, and sections four and five, township eighty-three. Hager & Sons donated twenty acres to the Des Moines & Fort Dodge Railway Company with the proviso that the shops be located here, and the land was accepted on the terms proposed.

About this time Dr. C. B. Park and O. B. Miller established lumber yards for the convenience of builders. The first buildings in the embryotic city were Dr. Park's residence, a store by Geo. C. Hillman, a hardware store by Dr. Park, for a long series of years occupied by H. A. Parmenter & Son, and a bank and several other buildings by Hager & Son, and a bank and several other buildings by Hager & Sons. The Headlight, which pushed into the activities of the town January 1, 1870, did much to encourage immigration and the growth of the place. In fact, the year 1870 was one of the most prosperous Grand Junction ever enjoyed in the way of material progress. The census of that year indicated a population of 444. The growth was steady and stable up to the year 1885, when the enumeration made the population nearly 1,000. At that time one-third of the inhabitants were dependent for support on the railway, the advent of which had really built the town. Hopes ran high during these early years that a branch road would be built from Grand Junction to Sioux City, making the shops permanent

and increasing the demand for employees. A few years later the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad took possession of the road, and soon afterward the shops were moved to Valley Junction. Since that time in the matter of growth Grand Junction has been at a standstill. It has always been a good center of local trade, and as the country has been developed by the incoming of new farmers, trade has increased and the same is true of the size of stocks and the character of goods on the shelves of the merchants. It is a remarkable fact that the firm of Geo. C. Hillman & Co., established nearly forty years ago, is still doing business on the same ground and under the same proprietorship as in the beginning.

INCORPORATION

The town was incorporated early in 1873, the first meeting of the council being held March 13th of that year. The officers for that and subsequent years have been:

1879.--Mayor, John D. Getz; trustees, Z. T. Funk, C. C. Metzger, Charles Smittle, S. T. Butner, A. Marquart and S. W. Eckerson; recorder, R. B. Hazeltine; treasurer, P. Parker; assessor, William Zellhoefer; marshal and street commissioner, Pat Casey.

1880.--Mayor, John D. Getz; trustees, C. C. Metzger, E. O. Carleton, Z. T. Funk, S. A. Eckerson, Charles Smittle and A. Marquart; recorder, R. B. Hazeltine; treasurer, P. Parker; assessor, W. F. Zellhoefer; marshal and street commissioner, Pat Casey.

4.  Obituary of Patrick Casey.

DEATH of Mr. P. Casey

We are pined to record the death of Mr. P. Casey, which occurred June 16, 1886.  Although his death had been expected for several weeks it was none the less keenly felt by his family and the community.  Mr. Casey was one of the first settlers here, and consequently has a large acquaintance among our people who regret to learn of his death, for a he was a good citizen and highly respected.  Mr. Casey was born in Draugheda, County, Meath, Ireland, December 24, 1830, and was married July 5, 1850, coming to this country August 10 of the same year.  He was aged 55 years, 5 months and 24 days at the time of his death, and leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss.  The community sympathizes deeply with them in their grief.  The funeral will take place at the Catholic church Friday morning, June 18th, at 9 o'clock.

Editor's Note:  This summary uses 1858 as the likely birth year for Patrick Augustus Casey believing the earliest census records to be the mose accuarate.  This date also brings the birth date of Patrick Augustus more in line with his other siblings in 1852, 1854 and 1856.

2.  Ref. death date of Patrick Augustus Casey as cited by his death notice, Mason City Globe Gazette, Jan 1942: Augustus Casey, 77 [83], died at a local hospital about 10 o'clock Wednesday night, following a brief illness.  He had been a resident of Mason City for the past 58 years.

Mr. Casey was born Feb. 28, 1864 [1858] at Earlville, Ill.  He was married to Miss Mary G. Quirk in September, 1885, at Sand Springs, Iowa.  For 47 years he was roundhouse foremen for the Milwaukee road, having retired in 1932.Surviving Mr. Casey is a son, Harold Casey, Mason City, and seven grandchildren.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary G. Casey, Jan. 20, 1935, by two daughters in infancy and one son, Frank Casey. The body will be taken from the Meyer funeral home to the Casey residence, 729 North Federal avenue, Friday forenoon and will lie in state there until the time of the services.  The Rosary will be said there Friday evening at 8 o'clock. Funeral services will be held at the Holy Family Catholic church at 9:30 o'clock Saturday morning, with Father R. P. Murphy in charge.  Burial will be at St. Joseph's Catholic cemetery.

Editor's Note:  As in the case of efforts of family members to minimize the age difference between Gus and Mary Casey by showing 1856 as her birth date, 1860 is also not Gus' birth date.  1864 is the correct year.  His obituary notes that he was 77 on 7 Jan 1942 which would put his birth year correctly as 1864.  In correcting Mary's birth date to 1853 and Gus' to 1864 the difference is eleven years, known to have been true by immediate family members, if not siblings living at the time.

Gus married12,45 Mary Genevieve Quirk32, daughter of Edward Quirk and Johanna Shane, on 23 Sep 1884 in Greene County, Iowa. Mary was born5,32,41,42,43,45,46,47,48 25 Feb 1853 in South Fork Township, Delaware County, Iowa.

a. US Census, 1860 - South Fork Township, Delaware County, Iowa.  Age 7, Iowa [1853].

b. US Census, 1870 - South Fork Township, Delaware County, Iowa.  Age 14, Iowa [1856].

c. US Census, 1880 - Grand Junction, Junction Township, Green County, Iowa.  Age 18 [1862].

d. Iowa State Census, 1895 - Mason City, Cerro Gordo County, Iowa lists Mary G., 33, suggesting 1862.

h. US Census, 1930 - Ward 3, [612 S. Pennsylvania] Mason City, Cerro Gordo County, Iowa.  Age 64, Iowa [1866].

Editor's Note:  Family lore has long held that Mary G. Quirk was a good deal older than here husband, Patrick Augustus Casey.  Using census records is likely that 'Gus' was born in 1858.  It is likely that Mary's correct birth year is 1853 based on the birth years for her older siblings and whereabouts of the family during those years.
