     Dennis Phelan was born circa 1825 in Ireland. Several sources, including the 1850 and 1870 US Censuses, as well as a naturalization record and the birth records of several of his children, provided Dennis' age.5,6,7,8,9,10 He was also known to have been born circa 1830 in Ireland. Other sources, including the 1860 and 1900 US Censuses, a marriage record, and a naturalization record also provided information which showed his age, indicating that he was born later than 1825. Given these discrepanices, it is likely that he was born between 1825-1830.11,12,13,14,15,16
     It appeared that Dennis began living in Waterbury since he emigrated from Ireland. The 1850 US Census in Waterbury did not note a specific address or neighborhood. When his son, Daniel, was born, it listed the father's address as Waterbury. When he registered for the Civil War Draft, it was written that he lived in the Abrigador section of Waterbury (which today would be lower Baldwin Street area) with his wife. As more children were born, the address of their parents on their birth certificates were simply Waterbury. But, by 1868, the Waterbury City Directory showed that Dennis and his family lived at 84 Baldwin Street. After the death of his wife in 1869, he remarried in 1871 and he remained on Baldwin Street until his death a year later.17,15,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25
     Dennis was was described mostly as a laborer as far as his occupation went. Many immigrants were drawn to Waterbury to work in the many brass mills. The birth records of his children, Daniel, Unknown male, Patrick, and Mary Ann indicated that their father was a labourer. On his civil war record, he was indentified simply as a laborer. On the 1860 US Census, he described himself as a factory worker and on the 1870 Census, he stated that he worked in a brass mill. This was definite proof that he was working in one of the many factories in Waterbury. And finally, on the 1871 City Directory, it was noted that his employer was Scovill Manufacturing Company. He worked as a labourer until the time of his death.1,26,27,28,15,29,30,31,32,33

     Daniel Phelan appears as Daniel Phelan, age 19, in the census of 5 June 1880 at Waterbury, Connecticut,in the household of Mary Costigan as her stepson.17    Daniel Phelan resided in June 1880 at 84 Baldwin Street, Waterbury, Connecticut, with Mary Costigan, his stepmother, as well as with Patrick Phelan and Mary Ann Phelan, his siblings; with her stepchildren : Daniel, Patrick, and Mary.17
     Daniel Phelan resided in 1883 at 84 Baldwin Street, Waterbury, Connecticut, with his stepmother, Mary, and his brother John and his wife, Mary.18 He was employed by M & W., Co. in 1883 at Waterbury, Connecticut.18

          Dan Phelan became a baseball player. The following is information about the 1884 Baseball Season:
     This is the first season of the Connecticut League, the first all-Connecticut professional League-also Connie Mack's first season in professional baseball (beginning a 50-year career as player, manager, and owner.) Mack played for Meriden, mostly catching and occasionally outfield. Daniel Phelon played for Waterbury, as regular first baseman- Waterbury won the League championship; Meriden was second.
     The teams in the league were: Waterbury, Meriden, Hartford, New Britain, Willimantic, and Rockville.
     The Waterbury lineup was mostly Irish, as was the entire league. For Waterbury, Burke was right fielder; Mellon, left fielder; Dailey, catcher; Magner, shortstop; Lovett, pitcher; Guest, second base; Allman, third base; and Phalon, first base. Phalon was a good hitter so in most games he hit fourth (cleanup).
     Here are some brief accounts of some Waterbury games taken from the Waterbury American which had good coverage:
     July 4 (Friday)-Doubleheader against New Britain. As was customary because of short distances, the first game was in New Britain in the morning, the second in Waterbury in the afternoon. Phalon batted cleanup in each game. He got two hits in the first game and two in the second game. In the field, he had 9 putouts in the first game and 10 in the second. The first baseman gets the credit for the putouts on ground balls that are hit around the infield. New Britain won the morning game 3-0; Waterbury won the afternoon game 6-0.
     July 6-Meriden 1, Waterbury 0-Phalon had one hit and 14 putouts. The accompanying story said" Phalon made two brillian long-run fly catches and received two bouquets of applause." The story also showed league standings with Waterbury in first place with an 18-5 record.(They must have begun the season back in May)
     July 9- Waterbury 13, Meriden 5-Phalon had 3 hits and 7 putouts. The story said "Magner played short stop without an error and Phalon at first base took all his chances finely."
     July 14, Springfield, 3; Waterbury, 0-This was a nonleague exhibition game. The story said the team played one of its worst games: "Phalon is one exception; he played first base without an error having 17 putouts with 3 safe hits in out of 5 times at the bat."
     July 15-Waterbury-18, Plainville-0 Another exhibition game. Phalon had two hits and 11 putouts.
     July 16-Waterbury 11, Rockville 6-For some reason, Phalon batted ninth in this game after batting cleanup in every other game. He still had 2 hits and 10 putouts. Everyone on the team had a hit, said The American, but two each for Phalon and C. Dailey and three for Guest".
     July 18-Waterbury-20, Hartford Foot Guards-2; another exhibition-militia units in various towns had their own amateur teams and their own league. Phalon got no hits and had 17 putouts.
     July 21-New York (Giants)-7, Waterbury-6- exhibition game with a major league team. Playing second base for the Giants was Waterbury's own Roger Connor (Baseball Hall of Famer)-Phalon had 1 hit and 6 putouts.(Connor was the home run champion until Babe Ruth hit one out of the field, the first time ever done).
     July 22-Waterbury-19, Naugatuck Blue Fronts-8, still another exhibition game. Phalon had 4 hits and 9 putouts, but he did make 3 errors which was unusual for him.
     Aug 12-Waterbury-8, Bridgeport-3- nonleague game. Phalon had three hits, 11 putouts, and 1 error. Story said "Guest, Phalon, Kennedy, and Magner did rather the best work for the Waterburys."
     Aug 15-Waterbury-13, Willimantic-3; Phalon had 2 hits and 12 putouts, no errors. Story said the "team had 3 brilliant double plays, one by solid old Punch Phalon alone".
     Aug 17-Meriden-2, Waterbury-0-Phalon-0 hits, 10 putouts, and 0 errors.
     Aug. 24-Waterbury-15, hartford-8---Phalon 0 hits, 10 putouts, 0 errors---"For a great wonder, Phalon was the only man in the home nine who failed to make a hit; his striking out was a rarity. Most of the work of Phalon, Kennedy, Allman, and Magner, in handling and doing the visiting base runners was exceptionally fine.
     Aug 24-Waterbury-8, Ansonia-2---exhibition game, no box score. Story said "Phalon making some ridiculous drops of easy balls at first." Also, this interesting item:"Second baseman Robinson of the Ansonias is a colored man, captain of the team, has a good voice and is an excellent ballplayer. He received great applause for several brilliant plays."
     Aug 31-Waterbury-8, New Britain-4---Pahlon 1 hit, 7 putouts and 2 errors. (Interesting item: in another game between two Waterbury amateur teams, the Echoes beat the Clippers 10-8. Second baseman Phalon had no hits or putouts for the Echoes. The sports column did not say what time the New Britain game was, but it was in New Britain. The Echoes and Clippers played in Waterbury in the afternoon. So, either there was another Phalon playing ball or Daniel caught on with an amateur team when there was no professional game.
     Sep 7-Meriden-3, Waterbury-0---Phalon-0 hits, 8 putouts, 0 errors.
     Sept 8-Detroit-3, Waterbury-2---exhibition game with Major League team. Phalon 1 hits, 9 putouts, and no errors. Another story in the sports column says Waterbury players Burke and Magner suspected of taking money from gamblers to throw games.
     Sep 10-Meriden-11, Waterbury, 2----Meriden seems to have Waterbury's number. Phalon had one hit, 15 putouts, 0 errors.
     Sept 11-Waterbury-6, Bridgeport-6----exhibition; tie because of necessity of making train or trolley scdedule. "The Bridgeports, led by their captain, rushed for their bag of bats and made off as soon as the ninth inning was ended. 'We must catch the train', he said." Story also said,"it was an off day for Magner, Kennedy, and even Phalon dropped a ball."
     Sep 12-No professional game, but he was in an amateur contest:Watch Shop-15, Irving Block-14. For the Watch Shop, Phalon, at shortstop, had one hit and 5 errors. All told, the Watch Shop had 18 errors.
     Sept 16-Waterbury-16, Jerseys-3---exhibition game. Jerseys were from Jersey City. Phelon had 3 hits, 12 putouts, and no errors.
     Sept 24-Waterbury-6, Hartford-0---Phalon 2 hits, 12 putouts, no errors. " Lovett, Con Dailey, Magner, Phalon, and Kennedy distinguished themselves by specially brilliant work." In the state league, Hartford lost every game against Waterbury.
     Oct 12-Meriden-9, Waterbury-1--even though this was a post season exhibition game, Waterbury was still jinxed by Meriden. Phalon had no hits, 10 putouts, and 0 errors.
     Final league standings: Waterbury-34-18; Meriden 25-22; Rockville 22-25; Hartford 20-27; New Britian 17-30. Willimantic dropped out in August.
     Overall, it appears that Phalon was one of the best players on the team. He both hit and fielded well and won praise from the sportswriter from The American. Late in the season his hitting fell off, but that happens with many players. And the mostly few errors he made were when he was playing in exhibition games.
   He was employed by M & W., Co. in 1884 at Waterbury, Connecticut.19

     Neil Hogan, editor of the newsletter published by the Connecticut Irish Historical Society, wrote an E-mail to me about Daniel Phelan in regard to baseball:
Hi Terry -- I have attached a newspaper picture of the 1884 Waterbury baseball team in the Connecticut State League. The team was notable on several accounts, but what you are most interested in is that the second guy from the right sitting on a chair in the middle row is identified as "Phelan." Unfortunately there is no first name nor initial, but given what you already know about him, this has got to be your man.

More good news -- your father was absolutely right about him playing with Connie Mack. The Connecticut League -- the state's first professional league -- was organized in 1884 with six teams: Waterbury, Meriden, Hartford, New Britain, Rockville and Willimantic. The players were predominantly Irish. The Meriden team hired a pitcher from Massachusetts named Hogan (no relation.) Hogan urged the Meriden management to also hire has battery mate, a catcher named Connie Mack. Meriden hired him and 1884 was Mack's first year in professional ball. So your uncle did indeed play against Mack.

A few years ago, I did a lot of the research for an exhibit organized by our CT Irish-American Historical Society. When I discovered that 1884 was the first year of the CT league and that Mack played his own first year at Meriden, I followed the league throughout the year. There is one big file filled with newspaper accounts of games and players that year, but I have as yet been unable to locate it. I am sure it has boxscores, etc. about the Waterbury team -- which incidentally, won the championship -- and when I find it, I can share it with you.

I did come across one account for a game played on July 2, 1885, in which Meriden defeated Waterbury 7-5. "Phalon" (that's the way it was spelled) played first base for Waterbury, batted cleanup, got one hit, a double, in four at bats, and scored a run.

The picture that I have attached was sent to me with an article that was published in what seems to be a fairly recent (last couple years??) issue. The article does not mention Phalen, but he is identified in the picture. However, the credit line under the picture says it is in the "Collection of Mattatuck Museum" in Waterbury. If you check with them, you probably can have a print made for yourself.

Also, if you follow the American and/or Republican papers in the summers of 1884, 1885, etc., you probably will find boxscores and stories with mention of him. The year that he played in the American Association, I imagine the Waterbury papers would have run stories about him too.27
