Biography contents


Patrick James, third of Patrick McGlynn's children, was born on 13th December 1879 in Argentine, KS. Like the rest of the McGlynn family, he grew up on the 40-acre fruit farm. Unlike his older and younger two brothers however, it was he who took over the running of the farm on the death of their father in 1919. Patrick lived there all his life, with his sister Mary Agnes until her death in 1952 and then by himself until his own death on October 27th 1955.
Patrick was buried with the rest of his family at St Joseph’s Cemetery in Shawnee on Monday 30th October. He left an estate valued at $54,000 in 1956. All but $5 was left to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith however – the $5 going to his nephew C1James Patrick Eugene, son of his older brother B1Michael Joseph. The society offered James the opportunity to purchase back five acres of the farmland at an agreed price. This he did and his wife Marilyn still owns this land today.
