Born to Irish immigrants, Michael and Catherine Reddy, in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, Patrick left for California in the early days of the Gold Rush. He lived and worked the mines and bars in Nevada and California. He married Emily M. Page in 1864. Losing his arm in a bar brawl, Mr. Reddy went on to become a lawyer, always on the side of the underdog. He became a California state senator from Inyo County, eventually moving to San Francisco where he died.

From the San Francisco Call, June 30, 1900:

"Laid Quiety Away in Cypress Lawn

"The body of Patrick Reddy was laid away in Cypress Lawn Cemetery yesterday. The funeral services were held according to the Catholic rites. Father Ryan of St. Brigid's Church offering the prayer for the departed both at the house, 2717 Pacific avenue, and at the grave. The house was crowded with men well known in business and in municipal affairs, who had gathered to pay the last tribute to their friend. There was a profusion of flowers, but beyond them the service was conducted with the utmost simplicity. Among the mourners were several Chinese merchants whom the lawyer had befriended. They followed to the cemetery and were present at the services at the grave. The pallbearers were Judge Beatty. Judge Lawlor, Judge Sullivan, General Barnes, James H.Barry, William P. Miller, Frank G. Drew and R. W. Campbell."
