Memorable Manitobans: Charles John McNerney (?-1907)


He was married with two sons when he came to Winnipeg from New York in 1882. He first worked for C. Montgomery, but shortly afterward he went into business for himself, and for years he enjoyed an almost exclusive trade in shoeing racehorses. He won a medal for the best pair of horseshoes at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. McNerney died in Winnipeg on 28 May 1907.
