History of Ann O'Hara and Francis Rox/Rocks
My name is Carole and I have been doing
my family tree for 12 months
now but I have come to a stand still with my Ann O'Hara. She was born
around 1837 in Ardboe, Co Tyrone, and was married to Francis
Rocks/Rox; they were my great great grand parents. I have their
children born from 1864 in Co Tyrone but no history on them at all
The children ended up comming to Stockton in Yorkshire, England.
I was told Anne left Francis with the children for someone else and
Francis died in a work house. But where Francis Rocks/Rox came from
prior to the marriage is a mystery
A lovely lady Pat Grimes has been helping me endlessly but cannot find
any trace of my Francis Rocks and his family after the births of their
Wonder if any one can help me please.
Here is a list of their children, and dates and
places of birth:
James 7/5/1860 Ardboe
14/7/1867 Stewartstown Co Tyrone
15/8/1870 ( my great grandfather )
1873 Co Tyrone
1875 Tamnavally Co Tyrone
7/6/1877 Dromore Co Tyrone.
I feel Francis may of died soon after birth as he
was baptised on the 9/6/1877
Could any one put a light on
this family for me please.
