  • Notes 
    • John, the son of (James?) and Mary (Neason?) McQuillan, came to the United States sometime before 1844. On July 23 of that year, he made application for citizenship. John lived in Vinegar Hills Township, northwest of Galena, Illinois, when he first arrived In America. In 1856, he and his brother Patrick bought adjacent farms in Elizabeth Township, eight miles east of Galena. He lived there until May, 1865 when he sold his farm to his brother Patrick and moved with his family and mother to Apple Valley, Minnesota. His youngest brother Philip. F. was already living in St. Paul, which could have been the reason he decided to move to Minnesota. He owned 80 acres and the farm was quite hilly and much of it was wooded with a small pond near the farm house. John raised eight children on a farm which provided them a very scant living. John sold his farm to his son John in 1881 and continued to lived with him. John sold the farm in 1887, and both John, Sr. and his son moved to St. Paul. John then lived with his sons Phillip and Peter until his death in 1889. John is interred next to his wife and mother in Highland Cemetery in Lakeville, Minnesota.
