O'Brien, Michael, popularly known among his associates as "Father Mike", died of pneumonia, at his residence, No. 438 W. 24th Street on Wednesday, January 7, 1885. He was born in Ennis, Co. Clare and died in his 57th year. Although a boy when his chief and namesake, Smith O'Brien, made an attempt at revolt, in 1848, young Michael joined the patriots in Liverpool, whither he had gone with his family, and was compelled to fly from England after the collapse of the movement. He sought refuge and found it, in America. He belonged to the Emmett Monument Association, the Phoenix Society and the Fenian Brotherhood. He was among the first who volunteered for Ireland in 1865, and was assigned to duty in Connaught. He was soon detected through the treachery of Pierce Nagle, and was lodged in Galway jail, but was subsequently removed to Mountjoy Prison, Dublin. He was held for 18 months and was finally liberated, with others against whom there was insufficient evidence, on condition of quitting what is called the United Kingdom. O'Brien refused any compromise, but he was put forcibly on board a steamer and sent back to America. He arrived in Chicago only to find his home darkened and desolated by the death of his two children. Three others died soon after, leaving him and his afflicted wife childless. He had long been employed in the street department under Mr. Fogarty and was regarded as a valuable assistant. The esteem in which he was held was well attested by the attendance at his funeral of nearly every member of the Fenian "Old Guard", resident in Chicago, including Col. R. S. O'Burke, Capt. Daniel Gleason, Florence Sullivan, Timothy Crean, James Cunnea, T. Griffin, Edward Quirk, P.W. Dunne, Michael Evans, Timothy Riordan, Thomas Mulvehill, Frank Murray, Patrick O'Brien and Patrick Meledy. -January 17, 1885 (2)
