About three years ago Mr. Dunn purchased some rice land in Louisiana and moved there.   While residing there he contracted malarial fever and never fully recovered.   About a year ago he returned and had been in his usual health until Thursday about midnight when he became quite sick.  He grew worse and died a short time before noon Friday.  A few days before his death, he traded his Louisiana land for a farm near Mt. Zion and some property in Decatur.

Father McGuire officiating.  The internment was in St. Isidore cemetery.  The floral offerings were beautiful.  J.H. Uppendahl, George Bobbitt, William Hogan, Michael Hogan, William Dellahunty and William Kennedy were pall bearers.  The Modern Woodsmen of America attended in a body.

From:  Decatur Herald & Review:  1941
Bernard H. Bresnan, 69, Dies.
Requiem high mass for Bernard H. "Bun" Bresnan, 69, retired farmer and horseman and earnest Democratic party worker, was celebrated at 9 a.m. Wednesday in St. Patrick's church in Decatur.  Burial was in St. Isidore's cemetery.  Mr. Bresnan, who lived in Decatur, had been in failing health for several years.  Sunday, his condition grew alarming and he entered St. Mary's hospital where he died at 9:15 a.m. Monday.
Keenly Interesed in Horses.
Born in Dalton City, Aug.  3, 1872, a son of John and Catherine Bresnan, he developed a keen interest as a youth in horses and over livestock and during his many years as a farmer in the Dalton City neighborhood won a reputation as a keen judge of the values and marketing possibilities of livestock.  He bought great numbers of horses and mules for the Allied armies in the first World war.
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 Illinois race meeting that friends might suggest.   As an ardent Democrat, he aided in accompllishing a series of party victories in Macon county and was rewarded by appointment as a deputy game warden, a position he held until his health started to fail.
On Sept. 28, 1897,  he married Mary Agnes Henneberry.  He leaves his wife; three daughters, Mrs. Edward Cahill and Miss. Dorothy Bresnan of Decatur and Mrs. T. L. Sheehan of Dalton City; one son Bernard J. Bresnan of Decatur; two grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. G.W. Halliburton of Wichita Falls, Texas.

John Kinney & Mary Bresnan were the parents of Edward Kinney who married Emma Henneberry and Daniel Kinney who married Lizzie Henneberry.

From Bethany Echo: Friday, April 27, 1906  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.
