It took the family two and one-half days to make the journey from Manitowoc, they being moved by a Mr. McIntosh, who owned an ox team. Mr. McIntosh also hauled lumber from a lumber camp, situated on what is now section 8, town of Franklin, and with this lumber Mr. Doolan built a shanty to house his family, while with only his axe he started to clear his land from the heavy timber. A hard and faithful worker, Mr. Doolan continued to develop his land and at the time of his death, in 1874, when he was seventy-one years of age, he had a well-cultivated and productive property. His widow survived him until 1879, and was seventy-two years of age at the time of her death. Both are buried in St. Patrick's cemetery at Maple Grove.

    Michael Doolan, 92, a resident and pioneer of Manitowoc county for 85 years, died at his homestead farm in the town of Franklin. He had been seriously ill only a few days. He is buried at the St. Patrick's Catholic cemetery in Maple Grove where he had donated the original land for the cemetery.

    Mr. Doolan was born in Mt. Tom, Massachusetts on June 9th, 1842. He came here from Buffalo, N.Y., with his parents, John and Julia, in 1849 when a boy of seven years. His mother was the first white woman in the town of Franklin and his father cleared a 160 acre tract of land. During the Civil War, Mr. Doolan tried to enlist in the army, attracted by the nearness of Company A of the Fifth Wisconsin regiment who was stationed at Manitowoc. His father needed him on the farm and so he remained at home. The death of his father in 1874 and his mother in 1878 left him the owner of the large farm. He continued to operate it until 20 years earlier when he turned it over to his son John. He spent the summers on the farm and his winters in the city.

    Michael Doolan married Mary Mullane on February 17, 1873. Eight of their 13 children survived him at the time of his death. They are Mrs. James O'Hearn Sr., Franklin; Mrs O.H. Olm, Manitowoc; John, on the old farm; Julia, a nurse at Milwaukee; James on the Mullane farm; Agnes, a nurse at Springfield, Ill., Bart, an engineer on the Milwaukee road in Mason City, Iowa, and Clara, a nurse at Shawano.

    Michael Doolan, the owner of a well cultivated property of eighty acres situated on section 18, town of Franklin, is one of Manitowoc county's good agriculturists, and has the distinction of being the oldest living settler in his part of the county. He is a native of Massachusetts and was born June 9, 1842, a son of John and Julia (Noonan) Doolan, who were born in Ireland and there married.

    At the age of twenty years Michael Doolan engaged in the lumber business, and worked in the woods and on the rivers until 1870. He was married February 23, 1873, to Miss Mary Mullane, born April 29, 1856, the only child of James and Mary (Connell) Mullane, natives of Ireland who were married in Pennsylvania, shortly after which they came to Wisconsin and purchased eighty acres of wild timber land on section 18, town of Franklin. Mr. Mullane died on this land in April, 1890, at the age of sixty-eight years, and his widow passed away in March, 1903, when living with her son-in-law, Mr. Doolan, and both are buried in St. Patrick's cemetery of Maple Grove.

    Mr. and Mrs. Doolan have had ten children. Mary married James O'Hearn, of Franklin, and has four children. Catherine, a graduate of Oshkosh Normal School, is now teaching at Kasson, Manitowoc county. Ellen, who lives at home, is engaged in keeping house for her father. John is the owner of the old homestead. Julia is living in Milwaukee. Bridget died at the age of five years. James is a graduate of the Manitowoc County Training School. Bartholomew, a graduate of Reedsville high school (1906) and Marquette College (1908), was employed on the Milwaukee Journal for two years in the circulation department, and later by the American Express Company for two years, and is now in the train service of the Chicago Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad at Mason City, Iowa. Agnes, who is a student at the Stevens Point Normal School and a graduate of Reedsville high school, is preparing herself for a career as a teacher. Clara is also preparing herself for teaching in the same institutions as her sister. Mrs. Doolan died September 18, 1895, and is buried in St. Patrick's cemetery at Maple Grove.

    Mr. Doolan has all of his land under a high state of cultivation, and carries on general farming, dairying and stock-raising. He markets dairy products, grain and hay, and milks on an average fifteen graded cows, and breeds to Clyde horses. His basement barn which is forty-five by one hundred feet, was built first in 1870 and remodeled in 1910, when it was equipped with cement floor and patent stanchions. The frame house was built in 1864 and was remodeled in 1899, and it now consists of ten rooms and is up-to-date in every respect. The farm is well fenced with barbed and woven wire, and a plentiful water supply is secured from drilled wells.

    Mr. Doolan is a member of the Catholic Knights of America and the Catholic Knights of Wisconsin, and with his family attends St. Patrick's Catholic church of Maple Grove. He is independent in political matters, and has served as town treasurer and as treasurer of the school board, of which he was a member for about fifteen years.

Bartholomew Doolan

M, b. September 7, 1846, d. August 30, 1935

Parents

Family: Sarah Watt (b. September 4, 1852, d. November 11, 1924)

Biography

  • Birth: Bartholomew Doolan was born on September 7, 1846 in Massachusetts.
  • Marriage: He and Sarah Watt were married on September 17, 1871 in Maple Grove, Manitowoc Co, Wisconsin.
  • Death: Bartholomew Doolan died on August 30, 1935, at age 88, in DePere, Brown Co, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Bartholomew DOOLAN, a thrifty and wealthy young farmer, of Morrison township, Brown county, is a native of Massachusetts, born September 7, 1846.

    John and Julia (NOONAN) DOOLAN, his parents, native of Ireland, were the parents of five children, namely: Mary, Michael, Bartholomew, Ellen and John. The father was a farmer, and, with his wife and his eldest (then his only) child, came to the United States in 1832, landing at New York after having passed seven long weeks on the ocean. From New York the family went to New England, and lived there for a period of eleven years, principally in Rhode Island, also residing for a few years in Massachusetts. In 1849 John and his family reached Wisconsin, and settled in Franklin township, Manitowoc county, where he bought 304 acres of land in its primitive condition, from which he, in due course of time, hewed out a farm that was the pride of the township. Their first dwelling was a log cabin, 16 x 24 feet in size, in which they lived twelve years, after which they erected a comfortable frame dwelling. The first schoolhouse was erected after the family had been in the township five years, and in this Bartholomew received his education. The father died May 15, 1877, the mother in 1882, and the remains of both were interred in Franklin.

    Bartholomew Doolan did good and faithful service in assisting his father in clearing up and tilling the home farm until he was twenty-one years of age, with the exception of a short time passed in working in the woods. Employing his time thereafter on his own account until he had reached the age of twenty-five, he married, September 19, 1871, Miss Sarah WATT, a daughter of Thomas and Sarah (O'CONNELL) WATT, natives of Ireland who came to America in 1845, and after their marriage here settled in Maple Grove, Manitowoc county, Wis., and reared six children-Anna, Sarah, Michael, Thomas, Mary and John. After his marriage Bartholomew and his wife came to Morrison township, Brown county, and here Mr. DOOLAN bought eighty acres of wild land, on which they erected their present home, with Indians, wolves, bear and deer for their companions and neighbors. Here was begun that life of toil and hardship developed only in pioneer life, but which resulted in after years in the possession of all the comforts and conveniences of civilization. The eighty-acre tract was increased to a farm of 200 acres, and the old log house, which is still standing, was their habitation fully twelve years, but their present residence, erected about 1884, is a modern frame, with every desirable convenience and comfort. But the acquirement of all this has required toil, economy, and the willing efforts of man and wife and the cheerful aid of the elder children. The children, eleven in number, were born in the following order: John, July 4, 1872; Thomas, July 27, 1874; Mary, October 4, 1876; Agnes J., January 21, 1879; Sarah E., May 28, 1881; Helen A., May 14, 1883; Frances B., September 11, 1884; Catherine G., November 17, 1885; Margaret, March 19, 1888; Lucy L., November 17, 1890; and Theresa, October 3, 1892. Of these, Frances B. died September 15, 1884; the others are all living at home, with the exception of Thomas, who is attending a business college at Manitowoc. The family are all strict members of the catholic Church, with the exception, of course, of the younger members, who have been baptized in that faith. Mr. DOOLAN has served as trustee of his Church, and, as a Democrat, is serving as school clerk of his township, but he takes no special interest in politics.

    Mr. Doolan and his family rank among the best and most respectable citizens of Morrison township, and it is such as he, with strong muscles, willing disposition, industrious habits and law-abiding principles, that have made the township and county what they are.
