Brandon Rooney "DENNIS COUGHLIN, proprietor of livery, boarding and sale stables, was born in Ireland in 1832, and came to America in 1852, and direct to Lake Superior. He engaged as miner in the Northweat Mine, on Keweenaw Point, and was employed at that mine three years. He then came to Portage Lake, and engaged at the Portage Mine, where Hancock now stands; it was a wild stretch of timber without sign of civilization. He subsequently worked at the Isle Royal and Quincy Mines under Richard & Douglas; was with the later about eight years; he then began training and draying at Hancock, and contracting for mines. He continued this business until April, 1878, when he opened a livery, boarding and sale stable, which he is carrying on at this date. He keeps a good stock of horses and carriages, and runs the most popular stable in Hancock. Mr. Coughlin was the first settler in or about Hancock. He was married in Ireland, when eighteen years of age, to Miss Ann Nugent, daughter of Maurice Nugent. They have three daughters and six sons. Mr Coughlin has recently lost his wife, who died May 29, 1882." Taken from the book "History of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan". Published 1883.
