(Received January 11, 2007)
Edward O’Hara married Bridget or Beesey Henery (born c.1864) in Co Sligo
Edward O’Hara was a Herder/Farm Labourer, he married Bridget
or Beesey Henery bn c 1864 daughter of James Henery and Kate
They had the following children:
Edward bn 26/11/1883 in Ranaghan, Sligo
bn 20/05/1886 also Ranaghan
(Jean) bn 26/12/1893 in Arderee, Sligo (My G Grandmother)
Kate bn 26/06/1898 in Cloonacurra, Sligo
My grandfather tells
me that Mary and Jean my G Grandmother came to Gorbals, Glasgow looking
for work he says his mother worked in a big house in Ireland prior to
this but I Believe they may have moved with their mother Bridget in the
early 1900’s after their father died as I have found a
marriage certificate for her in 1908 when she married a John Pettipiece
in Glasgow. Their Mother Bridget died in 1926 in Glasgow.
Jean married George Oliphant in Glasgow
in 1920 and she died in 1952 in Springburn.
Mary Married a man who worked as a road roller in Glasgow.
It is believed that one of the other
sons moved to Glasgow and married and a daughter moved to Canada to
work in a newspaper office. Can anyone help me with obtaining further
information on my family or are you connected somehow?
Would love to hear from you,
