Patrick H. Sullivan



There is an old saying, “The first shall be last.” Unintentionally this has proven true in our notice of persons in this work. Mr. Sullivan was among the first, if not the first man, who made a permanent settlement in Boone County. He certainly was the first on Eagle Creek. We have been unable to get only few facts in regard to this old pioneer, nor do we know when or where he was born. He came about the year 1824, and located on the creek near where Zionsville now stands. He married a Miss King, who did not live very long, when he again married Miss Broahard. The following are his children’s names: Berry, Mrs. Klingler, Harvey and Martha. The last two are deceased. Mr. Sullivan was of Irish descent, strong, athletic, full six feet high, and a sober, industrious, hard-working man all his long life. He died in July, 1876, aged about ninety years, and is buried at the Eagle Village Cemetery. We regret very much not being able to give a more extended notice of this old and respected pioneer of our county. Many who read this will call to mind Patrick H. Sullivan.
