Biography

"PRIVATE M. J. FITZPATRICK.

The late Pte. M. J. Fitzpatrick was the son of a former old resident of the district, Mr. P. Fitzpatrick. He was of quiet disposition, but hardy and well set, a splendid swimmer, and one whom hard work could never tire. He was 39 years of age and has left a widow, the daughter of Mr. John Kearne, and one child. Mrs. Fitzpatrick received, among many communications, a letter from Major Hardie, conveying the sympathy of the King and Queen, the Commonwealth Government, and the District Commandant, on the loss of her husband." - from the Kapunda Herald 08 Sep 1916 (nla.gov.au)
