Walsh, Patrick D. one of the most popular citizens of Eagle River, where he has resided for 30 years or more, was born in Ireland, May 13, 1856, son of William and Catherine (MANION) WALSH. A few months before Patrick was born the father emigrated to Canada, his wife and children subsequently joining him there, and in 1893 they came to the States, settling at Eagle River, Wis. Here William WALSH died a few years later, in 1896, and in 1898 his wife also passed away. Patrick D. WALSH was reared in Canada and there attended public school. It was in 1892, the year before his parents' arrival, that he came to Eagle River, Wis., and for some years thereafter he followed various occupations, taking a new job whenever he found that he could better himself. Upon the death of his brother he took up the duties of custodian of the Vilas County court house, in which position he has now served for over 20 years, his smiling countenance and genial manners having made him a general favorite with all who frequent the building as well as with his hundreds of acquaintances residing in the town. Mr. WALSH was married November 4, 1907 to Nora LAUGHLIN and he and his wife are devout members of the Catholic Church.
