John Nolan

From Thomas Henry Ryan's The History of Outagamie County part 8:

In 1850 John Nolan, Timothy Garvey, Richard Farrel, Mr. Bradley, Frank Wirtz and a few others were added to the Catholic colony in Appleton. Missionary Fathers attended to their spiritual wants at first.

The Wisconsin 1855 State census lists John Nolan as living in "Appleton Village, Outagamie County."

Before St. Mary's Catholic Church was built, mass was celebrated in homes, such as John Nolan's boarding house.
