Ed Irish and his family were members of the first major body of colonist to settle in Skagit County, Washington State to become a part of the Equality Colony .
The family traveled by a "special train" through eastern Canada crossing back into the United States working westward, picking up prospective colonist along the way.

However, a 1904-1905 Equality School List shows the Irish children in attendance.
It is unknown exactly when the family left the Colony and ultimately purchased their final home in Glendale, WA. (8th South - At that time it was located just outside the Seattle, WA city limits. However, it has since become an actual part of Seattle.)
