Patrick H. Sullivan
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.
