The McConnell family enjoyed many happy years here from the 1950s through the 1990s. John McConnell Sr. (1879-1972), a native of Ireland, he came to the states with his family at the age of four. As an adult, John owned and operated the Upper Alton Laundry and later was a precinct councilman. He and his wife, Julia Gatton McConnell (1882-1958), likely moved into this small home after most of their nine children (8 daughters and 1 son) were out of the house. However, their 54 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren often visited the home, and John Jr. continued to own the home after John Sr.’s death.
