Sorry, I don't know when these Ryans first arrived in Rock County or what part of Ireland they came from. I have found very little on Michael so far. There was mention of a "Mr. Ryan, a farmer who loves four miles southwest of this place, died at his residence Monday" in the Janesville Gazette on Oct 27, 1886. This is a little odd since the date matches, but Evansville is northwest of Janesville, not southwest.

The Gazette also had an obit for his wife Margaret. I put a copy at the bottom of this message.

I don't live in Wisc., so access to the files of the Rock Co Genealogical Society is problematic. I found a person to do a lookup for me in the Mt. Olivet Cemetery records and of the Gazette death records. These are the sources of my data. I also have a copy of Margaret's death certif. I know someone in Madison that is going to take pictures of their headstones for me.

Do you know if there is an index to the Evansville Badger newspaper or where copies may be archived?
