bought great numbers of horses and mules for the Allied armies in the first
In the 16 years that he lived in Decatur, much of time in semi-retiremant, his
fondness for horses remained. Where there was a horse or mule sale, he
usually could be found, and he always was ready for a trip to any Central

John Kinney ( Oct. 6, 1832 - April 27, 1906)
John Kinney died Friday evening about 5 o'clock at his home one
quarter of a mile east of St. Isadore Church. His death was the result of
injuries sustained in a run away the day before. Thursday, he was engaged
in pulling hedge with a traction engine. When driving to a well to fill
the tank, the mules hitched to the tank, ran away overturning the tank which
fell upon Mr. Kinney and was dragged over his body. As he was able to walk
to his home and seemed to be but slightly hurt, no danger was anticipated until
Friday afternoon when in act of taking a glass of water he fell to the floor in
a faint. Father Dougherty was called and administered the last sacraments.
When Dr. Davis, who was phoned for, arrived life was extinct.
Mr. Kinney's wife died suddenly about five months ago. He leaves five sons
and three daughters, Edward, Dan, Will, John and Nean, Mesdames
P. Fogarty, and L. Bolanger and Sister Isabella of the Ursuline Convent,
Collinsville. He retired from active farming some years ago. He was
about 73 years old. He was born in Ireland but came to America when quite
a young man. He had many friends and, what can be said of very few, no
enemies. He was noted for his honesty, his generousity and his charity.
The funeral was held Sunday at 10 a.m. at St. Isadore's Church and was largely
attended. Rev. J. J. Dougherty officiated. The regular choir
under the directorship of Miss Lizzie Conlin furnished the music. The pall
bearers were Bryan Conlin, John Fitzgerald, David Henneberry,
Patrick McCaughey, Michael Griffin and James Smith.
