Transcribed biography of John McAuliffe

JOHN McAULIFFE was born in the county of Cork, Ireland, and came to the United States in the year 1847. He resided first in Vermont, then in Ohio, and came to Valparaiso in 1857. Since he arrived in this country, he has been engaged for the most part as a foreman over the employees engaged in building railroads; and should this sketch come to the notice of any of the very many men who have served under the good-natured rule of "Uncle John," they will no doubt remember the old man with kindness. He died December 14, 1876. He was a good father, an upright citizen, and an honest man, and was one of those rare men who never sacrifice their honest principles.
