Bio: Murphy, Daniel (1914)


Surnames: Murphy, O’Neil

----Source: History of Eau Claire County, Wisconsin (1914) page 803 

Daniel Murphy, who is now living in retirement, was born in Buffalo, New York, February 22, 1850. His father, Daniel Murphy, who followed farming during his lifetime, was born in Ireland. He married Margaret O'Neil and reared a family of four children, viz: Jeremiah, Ellen, Margaret and Daniel. The parents are now both deceased. When seven years of age, in 1857, Daniel moved with his parents and family to Dodge county, Wisconsin, thence in 1860 to Eau Claire, where the father engaged in farming. 

Daniel Murphy, the subject of this sketch, grew to manhood in this county, and spent approximately thirty-seven years of his life in the lumber woods, where he was employed as cook, and at other times was engaged in farming. He has al-ways been a temperate, frugal man, and a great reader. By hard work, perseverance and economical habits, he saved his earnings until he has amassed considerable money, which he is now loaning on good security. In politics he has never taken any important part; has never sought nor held political office, but has exercised his rights as a good citizen.
