The Late Philip Sheridan

The Trinity Journal published at Weaverville, Cal., in its issue of December 9, 1899, contained a lengthy and interesting obituary notice of the life and death of Philip Sheridan, formerly of this county, and uncle of Philip and James Sheridan now residing here. The deceased was born in County Cavan, Ireland in 1823 and came to Galena with his parents in 1828. When twenty-two years of age he went to California and joined his brother, John, who was engaged in mining, and ultimately became well to do in this world’s goods. Mr. Sheridan was a man of quiet and unobtrusive manners, and was strictly honorable in all of his social and business relations, and was a good neighbor and citizen. He leaves to mourn his departure one brother, John Sheridan of Junction City, Cal., a nephew and niece at Oakland, Cal., and a niece and two nephews at Galena, Ill.
