Bresnan, he developed a keen interest as a youth in horses and over livestock
and during his many years as a farmer in the Dalton City neighborhood won
a reputation as a keen judge of the values and marketing possibilities
of livestock. He bought great numbers of horses and mules for the
Allied armies in the first World war.
In the 16 years that he lived in Decatur, much of time in semi-retiremant,
his fondness for horses remained. Where there was a horse or mule
sale, he usually could be found, and he always was ready for a trip to
any Central Illinois race meeting that friends might suggest.
As an ardent Democrat, he aided in accompllishing a series of party victories
in Macon county and was rewarded by appointment as a deputy game warden,
a position he held until his health started to fail.

John Kinney died Friday evening about 5 o'clock at his home one quarter
of a mile east of St. Isadore Church. His death was the result of
injuries sustained in a run away the day before. Thursday, he was
engaged in pulling hedge with a traction engine. When driving to
a well to fill the tank, the mules hitched to the tank, ran away overturning
the tank which fell upon Mr. Kinney and was dragged over his body.
As he was able to walk to his home and seemed to be but slightly hurt,
no danger was anticipated until Friday afternoon when in act of taking
a glass of water he fell to the floor in a faint. Father Dougherty
was called and administered the last sacraments. When Dr. Davis,
who was phoned for, arrived life was extinct.

and his charity.

Joliet Herald News of Wednesday June 12, 1968: Henneberry dies;
rancher, businessman. "John J. Henneberry, 88, well known businessman and
rancher, died Tuesday (June 11, 1968) at Methodist Hospital in Rochester,
Minn, following recent surgery. He had been ill about a month.
Mr. Henneberry resided at 522 Knox Pl., but spent much of his time on his
ranch in Oswego and farms in the Minooka area. Even when he
operated auto agencies in Lockport and Joliet, Mr. Henneberry spent considerable
time in farming and ranching.
His white-faced Hereford stocks were prize cattle. He made frequent
trips to Wyoming and other points west on cattle buying trips to improve
and supplement the stock on his 700 acre Wa-Kee-Shaw ranch. Some
of the nation's top Hereford stock came from there. Mr. Henneberry's
herd sired many chanpions shown at state fairs in Illinois and Wisconsin
dating back to the early 1950's. He showed one bull at Denver, Colo.,
where he refused a bid of $25,000 for the animal. His stock was shown
at the Cow Palace in San Francisco, Calif.
His love of farming and ranching went back to his boyhood. Forn
Feb. 2, 1882, on a farm in Lorenzo, he was a son of pioneer Will County
settlers John J. and Catherine O'Brien Henneberry. He moved to Minooka
when a young man and owned and operated a grocery store. He came
to the Lockport-Joliet area about 45 years ago to enter the auto business.
He began selling Chevrolets and had an agency in Lockport from 1932 to
1939. He came to Joliet late in 1939 to open the Buick agency at
Cass and Joliet Streets. A short time later he moved a block south
to the present location of Vidmar Buick, Inc., 147 N. Joliet St.Vidmar,
operated by his son-in-law, Fred Vidmar is successor to the Henneberry
Buick Co. which Mr. Henneberry operated for 23 years.
Even in recent years he maintained a keen interest in business activities
especially farming and ranching. Despite his age, he had the same
erect, fast stride he had as a young man. His stalwart appearance
never diminished over the years. He had a shock of whith hair which
stood out as he walked rapidly down the street or conversed quietly in
a crowd. He was a member of several auto associations until recently.
he was a member of the Farm Bureau Illinois Agriculture Association, Knights
of Columbus Counc8il 382, the Joliet elks 296, the Joliet Country Club
and the Holy Name society of the Cathedral of St. Raymond.
Mr. Henneberry is survived by his wife the former Margaret Comerford,
a daughter, Mrs. Fred Vidmar, two grandaughters, Kathleen and Jacqueline
Vidmar of Joliet, four sisters, Mrs. Andrew (Mollie) Feeney of Minooka;
Mrs. John (Elizabeth) Nugent, Miss Catherine Henneberry and Mrs.
Thomas (Harriet) White of Joliet, and a brother, Thoms of Belvidere.
He was preceded in death by five brothers, Frank, David and three in infancy;
and two sisters, Margaret Feeney and Jennie Kavanaugh. The funeral
will be from the Fred C. Dames Funeral Home at 9:30 am Friday to the Cathedral
of St. Raymond at 10. Burial will be in St. Mary's Cemetery
at Minooka. Visitation will be from 2 to 5 and 7 to 10 pm Thursday.
