----Source: History of Eau Claire County Wisconsin (1914) page 707

Thomas F. Fennessy, well known as one of the substantial grocerymen of Eau Claire, was born in Ireland and when a young man in 1869 came to the United States and settled in Eau Claire, where he engaged in lumbering, a business he followed until 1887, when he opened a retail grocery store, in which line he has since followed with unusual success. Mr. Fennessy is a man who enjoys the confidence and esteem of all with whom he comes in contact, both in a business way and socially. He is unassuming in manner, but has a quiet consciousness of his own strength of character and latent force that has carried him past all difficulties which he has encountered during his lifetime. He is a member of the Catholic Church and also of the Catholic Knights.

Mr. Fennessy was married in Eau Claire to Ellen Dwyer, by whom he has four children, viz.: Joseph F., who is married and lives at Great Falls, Montana; Thomas F., of Chilliwack, B. C.; William F., married and living in Eau Claire, and Catherine, living at home with her parents.
