In Reply to: Martin Flanigan--1869--Ill by Christine Flanigan of 465

From History of Greene and Jersey Counties, Illinois, Springfield, IL: Continental Historical Co., 1885, pp. 301 - 324. There will be typographical errors.

Quarry Township

The Grafton House is operated by Martin Flanigan, who commenced business in 1869. The house at that time was a two-story frame, 12 x 24 feet in size. In 1872 he remodeled the building and enlarged it to 24 x 38 feet, and as his business demanded larger accommodations still, he accordingly built an additon in 1883, 26 x 38 feet in dimensions. At present the house contains 22 sleeping apartment. Mr. Flanigan also operates a livery and feed stable in connection with the hotel.

Martin Flanigan, proprietor of a hotel and saloon at Grafton, was born in county Limerick, Ireland, in 1841, and is a son of James and Jane (Kane) Flanigan, both natives of Ireland. At or about the age of 20 years, Martin came to American and settled in Washington, D.C., where he remained till the spring of 1866. He then removed to St. Louis and remained in that city until 1869, at which time he came to Grafton, and engaged in his present business. Mr. Flanigan was married in 1862 to Mary C. Eight children have been born to them, five of whom are living: Jane, wife of Mr. Fitzgibbons, of Grafton; John, Mary A., Margaret T., and Martin J. Those deceased were: Catherine, Catherine Helen, and Johanna. They are buried in the Catholic cemetery. Mr. Flanigan owns his business property and a residence in the town of Grafton, and is in prosperous circumstances. He and his wife are members of the Catholic church. His mother, Mrs. Jane Flanigan, died in Ireland in 1863. His father, James Flanigan, died in the city of Philadelphia in 1883.
