Zach Mulhall, one of the celebrities of the far Southwest, and a man who has been truly a pathfinder for advancing civilization, is a native son of St. Louis, was reared in this city and still continues in close touch with its commerce and its people. There has been much of romance, much of adventure, much of thrilling experience in ‘his life, and as the honorable accomplishments of a son reflect credit upon his father’s household, so did the meritorious achievements of one who goes out from a city to become the founder of new communities reflect credit upon the city of his birth. Mr. Mulhall was born in St. Louis, September 22, 1845, and belongs to an old and well known family. His parents were Joseph and Susan Mulhall, and his father was ‘long well known throughout the West as a wealthy stock raiser, whose home, at the corner of Grand Avenue and Morgan Street, was an ornament to the city. The elder Mulhall was at one time president of the Butchers’ & Drovers’ Bank, and held other positions of honor and trust in this city. The son received his early education at the Christian Brothers’ College, later attended St. Louis University, and completed his studies at Notre Dame College, of South Bend, Indiana. In 1875 he married Miss Agnes Locke, of St. Louis, and a few years later (in 1883) he removed with his family to what was then the Indian Territory, now a part of Oklahoma.
