O'Brien, Patrick, was born in County Waterford, Ireland, April 2, 1851. In May, 1867, he sailed for America and came direct to Jefferson county, where he was employed as a farm hand until 1878 and then purchased some property in the city of Watertown and after some eleven years' residence in that city exchanged his city property for the farm he now resides on, known as the Valley farm. Mr. O'Brien was married on June 19, 1878, to Mary A. Donahue of Watertown, and they have four children: John D., aged nineteen; Edward J., aged fifteen; Catherine A., aged twelve, and Mary H., aged eight.
