JOHN BRODERICK is a sterling citizen of La Crosse, where he is now living essentially retired, except for the demands placed upon his
attention by his services as collector of the La Crosse credit association.

He was born in the city of London, England, May 9, 1832, a son of John and Katherine (Conner) Broderick, both of whom were born in Ireland, being young at the time of the removal of the respective families to England. The father died in London in 1863 and the mother continued to reside in that city until her death in 1871. Of
the eight children in the family all are now deceased except the subject of this sketch, who is the youngest.

He was reared and educated in his native city and there served for some time as a member of the
police force, as well as a detective in the famous Scotland Yard. In 1869 he came to America, landing in New York city in August of that year and thence coming directly to De Soto, Vernon county, Wis., where he remained for two years. In 1871 he removed to Allamakee county,
Ia., where he developed a fine farm of 360 acres and became one of the influential citizens of the county, of which he was an honored pioneer.

In 1890 he came to La Crosse and has since held the office of collector for the La Crosse credit association, having disposed of his farm in
Iowa. In politics Mr. Broderick maintains an independent attitude, and he is affiliated with the Masonic fraternity. He was reared in the
faith of the Roman Catholic church and his wife is a communicant of the Episcopal church. He has accumulated valuable real estate in the city of La Crosse, is a liberal and public-spirited citizen and has the unqualified esteem of all who know him.

On Aug. 9, 1861, was solemnized the marriage of Mr. Broderick to Miss Emma J. Lott, who was born and reared in England, and they became the parents of two children, William and Emma, both of whom died in England.
