Memorable Manitobans: Jeremiah Edward O’Connor (c1871-1912)


Born around 1871, he moved from Windsor, Ontario to Winnipeg around 1903 and practiced law, eventually as the senior partner in the firm of O’Connor, Isbister, and Morton. He was made a King’s Counsel in early 1912. He died at London, England in December 1912, while attending sessions of the privy council in the interests of his clients, following an operation for appendicitis. He was survived by a widow and three children.
