Halnon, John, Cornwall, was born on June 22, 1836. His parents were James and Catherine (Dalton) Halnon. He came to America with his parents in 1849, and settled at Schuyler Falls, New York, and finished his education at Plattsburg Academy. In 1853 when seventeen years of age, he came to Cornwall, Vt. and worked for Alonzo Bingham and Rollin J. Jones for five years, when he purchased a farm in Beekmantown, Clinton County, N.Y., where he lived for seven years. He returned to Cornwall in 1865 and purchased the place where he now resides, and which was the former Baxter place. It then contained (at the time of purchasing it) 350 acres. He now owns 550 acres. He occupies a part of the old Baxter house, which he has added to and remodeled until now it is a very fine residence. He is a successful farmer and stock raiser. He enlisted on the first call for troops in the spring of 1861, and took part in the first battle of Bull Run, in Company D., Sixty-ninth New York Volunteers. He served out his term of enlistment, and was discharged at Albany, New York. He was married on April 21, 1870, to Isabella M. Tully, a daughter of Peter Tully, of Cornwall, Vt.

Dies in Foreign Land
John Halnon, an Aged and Respected Farmer of Cornwall, Dead.

A cablegram has been received here from Ireland stating that John Halnon, a respected citizen of Cornwall, had died there. Instructions were promptly cabled by his relatives to send the body here. Mr. Halnon came to America when a young man and became a prosperous farmer, owning one of the finest farms in this section. He was about 75 years old and is survived by a wife, five daughters, Mrs. Thomas Carrigan of Fowler, Mrs. John Halpin, Misses Hattie, Maud and Genevieve Halnon, and three sons, John, Frank, and George, all of Middlebury and Cornwall. Mr. Halnon had long wanted to return to his native country for a visit and sailed a few weeks ago. The cause of his death is not known.

Further announcements made late.
