Mr. Rooney and his family moved to Joseph from Paradise in 1920, after trading his ranch for the Mitchell hotel, which he ran for a short time. Shortly after this, they traded back again, and Mr. Rooney worked for Mr. Mitchel a great deal up until the time when he established a meat market and grocery store here in 1922, which he had owned and operated since. Mr. Rooney also purchased a store in North Powder about two years ago which Norval conducted.
