John Thomas Ryan, Sr.
John T. Ryan was born in Owego, New York on June 13, 1868.
He traveled to Badger, Iowa as an infant in 1868.
He was three years old when his Father Thomas died in October, 1871.
On January 28, 1899 John married Ellen (Nellie) O'Connor, at Corpus Christi Parish in Fort Dodge, Iowa.
John T. was the family member who remained on the Ryan family farm just outside of Badger, Iowa until he took ill with cancer, at which time he moved himself and his family into Fort Dodge. He passed away on April 12, 1916.
John T. Ryan was very active in the local politics of Webster County. He had served as County Treasurer, and as a Supervisor on the Webster County Board of Supervisors.
Some time in approximately 1914, John T. Ryan, Sr. was diagnosed with cancer, to which he ultimately succumbed in spite of extensive consultations at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. His obituary also states, “He was well aware that his earthly career was fast drawing to a close and faced the change with perfect fortitude.”
