MICHIGAN CITY NEWS, Michigan City, Indiana, Wednesday, March 24, 1897: Death of P. H. McNulty
The Curtain of Life Hung Down and a Busy Career Closed
Patrick H. McNulty expired at 10:25 Tuesday morning at his home, 114 east Market street, surrounded by the members of his family. He had been confined to his bed hardly a week. About six weeks ago, he had a severe attack of the grip, but he recovered and seemed to be regaining his health. Sunday, March 14th, he contracted a severe cold, which brought on pleurisy and Thursday he took to his bed. For two days his life hung by a slender cord and he lived only because of his vitality, but this morning, he gave up all hope and yielded up his spirit in a peaceful death.
Patrick Henry McNulty was born March 14th, 1847, in Madrid, New York. His parents were George and Rose McNulty, both of whom have crossed into the Great Beyond. In Madrid, the subject of this sketch grew up to manhood, striking out about the year 1865 for the west, settling in Michigan City. He was married in 1870 to Miss Mary Murphy, of this city, daughter of Mrs. Margaret Murphy. For a period of about ten years after settling in Michigan City, Mr. McNulty was employed as foreman in the Peck lumber yard. Then he engaged in the livery business with Mr. D. E. Case, their stables being located where Niemer & Company's livery barn now stands. The partnership was later dissolved. Mr. McNulty became a member of the firm of McNulty & Concannon and afterward of the firm of McNulty & Donly. Six years ago, he made his son George a member of the firm, which was known as McNulty & Son.
The deceased was a member of St. Mary's church, of the Catholic Order of Foresters, of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and of St. Julius Council. He was president of St. Julius Council and treasurer of the local court of Catholic Foresters. He held the position of chief of the fire department for many years as well as the office of deputy sheriff and other positions of trust. He carried insurance amounting to $10,000. Mr. McNulty leaves a wife and three sons: George, Thomas and Edward, all living at home; also a sister and three brothers residing near Ogdenburg, N.Y.
P. H. McNulty was known throughout the county, and everywhere he had an acquaintance, his death will be deeply deplored. Men who have been his life long friends speak in the highest terms of the many noble traits of his character. He was staunch to his friends, true to his word and kind to his family. He was generous to a fault and for his friends, he could not do half enough. All who ever knew him can speak a good word for him.
The funeral will occur Thursday morning at 9 o'clock from St. Mary's church. Rev. Father Bleckmann will conduct the services and interment will be had in Calvary cemetery.
