THE FALVEY FAMILY
Irishman Jeremiah "Jerry" Falvey (b.
Ireland, 1825; d. 1884) and his wife Hanora (Mary?) were married in
1854 in New York and came to Minneapolis that fall. In the
spring of 1855 they settled on his farm on Section 8 in St.
Louis Park. The 1860 census finds them in Minneapolis
Township (St. Louis Park hadn't been incorporated yet.). An 1889 map shows the Falvey land to be on
either side of the Great Northern tracks, northeast of the
Center. The 1914 map shows that he owned at least 142 acres,
located approximately between Louisiana and Texas,
22nd to 28th. Until 1933, Louisiana was called Falvey.
