a. Note:   Biographical Information by Dennis Nicklaus: !Frank (as he is almost always known) enlisted in the US Army during
 the Spanish American war in 1898. He was a corporal in the
 3rd Nebraska Regiment, Company K.
 The battles were all over by the time the regiment was completely
 assembled. But they were sent to Havana, Cuba and arrived there
 in January of 1899 where they served on patrol duty and ceremonial occasions.
 Frank is quoted in an article about this history and the experience
 in camp in Florida before being sent to Cuba, as follows:
 John (``Frank'') Kealy (Dr. Donovan B. Foote's father-in law) later
 reflected on conditions he experienced while stationed in Florida:
 ``Our camps were laid out with the row of company cook tents (no fly
 screens) next to the open latrines and we sat around there in the sand
 to eat whatever was dished up to us with one hand while using the
 other to brush flies. Even after a lot of deaths from typhoid,
 dysentery, etc. there was nothing done about it. One morning nine men
 in our company was all that could stand up in line to answer roll
 call.'' Company K was fortunate to have no fatalities in Florida since
 5,000 of the 5,400 American deaths in the war were caused by disease.
 Frank's Kealy construction company built St. Mark's Cathedral
 in Hastings. He founded the company in 1910.
 For more details, see
 Some of Frank's children put together a booklet listing most of his
 descendents and relatives in 1980. As of 1980, they counted
 30 grandchildren (18 boys, 12 girls) and 36 great-grandchildren
 (13 boys, 23 girls) of Frank and Addie Kealy. I have very little
 information on the family after that 1980 date.
 In May of 1955, Frank and Adeline were awarded the medal Pro
 Ecclesia et Pontifice from Pope Pius XII, presented by the Bishop,
 in recognition of their services ``for the Pope and Church.''
