Michael J. Mahoney (1897-1918) was a Marine from New Brighton, Staten Island, who was killed in World War I. Mahoney was one of ten brothers and sisters, and graduated from De La Salle Academy in Manhattan, and St. Peter’s High School in New Brighton. He worked for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in St. George before joining the war effort, and served two years in the Calvary Brigade; he then enlisted in the Marines on his 21st birthday. Mahoney served as a private in the 96th Company of the 6th Regiment of the Marine Corps, and fought in five major battles in France. He was mortally wounded while fighting in the St. Mihiel sector, and died October 12, 1918. His body was brought back to the United States, and Michael Mahoney was buried in St. Peter’s Cemetery, in West Brighton.
