- He was associated with the most affluent families in Wheeling.
- By 1850, Michael (and three other Quinlans) were orphans living in the home of a local and wealthy merchant.
- In the 1860 census, Michael (along with three brothers) are shon as residing in the home of Mary Zane; each of the boys had estimated personal estates valued at $6000.
- Michael is listed as a printer (remember this from Post I)
- Michael is found in the roster of a community militia group in Wheeling in 1859 called the Virginia State Fencibles.
- He was diagnosed as having Valvular Heart Disease (remember the disability discharge I showed in Post I) and Michael and his siblings were all dead by 1878.
The next step is to follow up with Notre Dame to see if they still have any period records that show he is the same Michael Quinlan described above. I'll post any additional information I get!
THANK YOU LINDA!
