O'SULLIVAN & McAULIFFE. Patrick T. O'Sullivan is a native of the village of Shannonvile, Cork, Ireland, and was born April 5, 1852. He is one of eight children, five of whom are yet living, born to John and Hanora (O'Donovan) O'Sullivan. He was educated in the Irish national and select schools, and in November, 1872, emigrated to America, landing in New York in December. He came of La Porte, Ind., and in January, 1873, entered Notre Dame University, graduating in June, 1874. The following August, he came to Valparaiso and became a teacher in St. Paul's Grammar School, where he remained eight years. In September, 1881, in partnership with J. F. McAuliffe, he established the Valparaiso Herald, issuing the first number on the 29th of that month. The paper is a six column quarto, independent in politics, has become one of the leading journals of Porter County, and ranks among the most ably edited papers of Northern Indiana.

J. F. McAULIFFE was born in Porter County, Ind., in December, 1859, and is one of the five living children of a family of nine born to John and Catharine (Clifford) McAuliffe, natives of Ireland. The parents came to America in about 1849. The father died December 14, 1876; the widow still survives and is living in Centre Township, on the Joliet road, west of Valparaiso. J. F. McAuliffe was reared in this county, and received a good practical education, which was finished at St. Paul's Grammar School, Valparaiso. He was married, May 3, 1881, to Sophia Haberle, and is the father of one daughter, Catharine.
