ⓘ Hennessey, Oklahoma

Hennessey is named after Pat Hennessey, an Irish fighter who was killed at the present townsite in April 1874. He was said to have been burned on a wagon wheel, either by native Cheyenne tribesmen or white horse thieves.

Pat Hennessey Memorial Park can be found on the streets of Arapaho Iowa. The location of his body is another story. PAT Hennessey was originally buried near the site of his death in a shallow grave. Stones were placed over his body, and drivers of passing will continue to place markers on his grave. At some point in the history of Hennesseys the body was moved. Perhaps his family came from Ireland and reclaimed his body. In any case, its not on the site marker in Memorial Park: excavations there produced no remains.

The city was founded by the company Hennessey the city after the land run of April 22, 1889.
