It is believed that Patrick was born 10 March 1874 in Enaghan, but while the Commonwealth War Graves Commission states that Patrick's mother, Kate, lived in Enaghan, others records state that Patrick was born in Co.

|Parents Names:||(Likely) son of Peter* Sheridan and Kate (née Masterson) of Enaghan, Moyne.|
