Mr. 0. was born in Brooklyn, November 10, 1844 ;
his father established his home in Brooklyn in 1815,
and was well known and respected in the village for
many years before Eugene made his first appearance
in the Second Ward homestead. In 1846 the family
removed to the small white cottage which is still
standing at the corner of Hicks and Willow streets.
The 0"(i!onnor family in a lew years became too
large for the little cottage, and they were obliged to
seek a more commodious house, which they found
in Columbia Heights, corner of Poplar street. This [
was Mr. O'Connor's home for nearly forty years. |
Here his boyhood days were spent, when he was one j
of the " prized " members of the local amateur base- j
ball nine, and when he was without a successful |
rival in the vicinity in athletic exercises and con-
tests. After graduating from Public School No. 8 at
an age when most lads had not mastered the simpler
rudiments of education, he entered St. Francis
Xavier College, and took a commercial course. He
afterward entered St. Francis' College and took a
course of Latin, sitbsequently receiving from that
institution the degree of A. M. When the first gun
was fired on Fort Sumter, O'Connor was scarce sev-
enteen, but he was fearless, intrepid and determined.
After two attempts to join the army he succeeded in
enlisting for nine months in Company C, Fifty-sec-
ond Regiment, N.Y. S.V. He accompanied Banks'
expedition to Louisiana. His company with othei's
had an engagement with the enemy at La Fourche
Crossing. Mr. 0. and two others were captured, but
two days afterward he escaped and succeeded in
Joining the remainder of his regiment at New Or-
leans, as part ol it ha< been captured. At the ex-
piration ot the term of his service he re-enlisted for
three years, or the war, and in December, 1863, was
commissioned Second Lieutenant. He accompanied
Banks' Red River expedition, and took part in the
engagements at Alexandria, Mansura and Marks-
ville. Soon afterward bis regiment was ordered
north, and Lieutenant O'Connor served as aide-de-
camp to General Macauley and General Molineux,
and participated in several engagements. During
the battle of Cedar Creek he received a shot in the
breast which passed through his r\ght arm. He was
removed to the hospital at Annapolis, subsequently
discharged under general orders, "on account of
wounds received in battle," and breveted Captain

for gallant and meritorious conduct." He did not
recover the use of his arm until about six months
after his return home. He entered the University
Law School, and receiving his degree of LL. B., was
admitted to practice law after undergoing the usual
examination by the Supreme Court. Since his ad-
mission he has administered many large and im-
portant trusts to which he has been appointed by the
courts. Captain O'Connor is a member of the John
A. Dlx Post, and served two years as officer of the
guard. He is president of the Columbian Club, and
director of several corporations of New York city.
