Biography of John McCarthy

John McCarthy was a pioneer of Kansas. The respect paid to his memory is not due merely to his early residence in the state, but in an even more important degree to the worthy life he led, the influence which had gone from him and from his children to the making of a better community and a better state, and to the benefits which always flow out from a man of such stability of character and industry. He was born in County Cork, Ireland, in 1812. In 1847, when a young married man, he came to America. His first home was on the east coast of the State of Maine. For several years he was in the lumber business in the Pine Tree State. About 1853 he removed to Kentucky, where he became an extensive railroad contractor, when railroad building was in its infancy in Kentucky. He helped to build the Maysville & Lexington Railway and other lines. That was his occupation until 1858, in which year he removed with his family to Johnson County, Kansas, locating at the old place known as McCanish, which later became Edgerton. Kansas was still a territory, factional struggle over free state and slave state was still going on, and the dangers to life and insecurity of property were additional factors of hardship to those seeking to make a home out of the...

In 1898, Congress passed a bill creating the only ‘Institution for Insane Indians’ in the United States. The Canton Indian Insane Asylum, South Dakota (sometimes called Hiawatha Insane Asylum) opened for the reception of patients in January, 1903. Many of the inmates were not mentally ill.
