PATRICK BRADY, jeweler, was born in Dublin, Ireland, March 17, 1837, and is a son of Paul and Martha (Hamilton) Brady, natives of Ireland. Pat­rick learned the jeweler’s trade in Dublin, and subsequently took a full course of instructions in the manufacture of watches in Liverpool, England. He then returned to Dublin, where he became foreman of one of the leading jewelry houses of that city. During the war he immigrated to Sharon and opened a jewelry store, which has grown to be the foremost house in its line in that borough. Mr. Brady married Ellen Cooke, a native of Ireland. Of this union seven children survive: Martha, Ella, Lucy, Lillie, Emma, Alice and Albert. Politically he is a Republican, and the family belong to the Episcopal Church. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity and the A. O. U. W. Beginning on a small capital he has, by close attention to his business, accumulated considerable property, and is one of the oldest business men of Sharon.
