Interest In possible O'Hara relatives in Southern Ireland
My maiden name was/is Anne O'Hara. All my older relatives are now
deceased. My great grandmother and father came over from the North West
of Southern Ireland around the 1840's (Potato famine), to Keighley,West
Yorkshire, England. I think from very few indications that they came
from somewhere near Knock! 'kiltiknock' if there is such a place?
I would be grateful for any replies.
Unfortunately, their names where Mary and John, obviously common names
and to make it more difficult they were only small children when they
left Ireland.... They had a son soon after arriving called James who
died at the age of two and who they then bought a grave for. Neither
seemed to be able to read or write.
