Grandfather Jerry O'Hara came to Canada and then to SW Missouri (c. 1900)

    My grandparents (Jerry O'Hara and Mamie Normile) came to Canada and then to SW Missouri. I don't have the facts in front of me but will say it was around 1900. They had six sons (James, Paul, Brian, Mark, and Clarence) and one daughter (Ruth). In the 30s and 40s the farm failed and all of the boys dispersed from SW Missouri (Ruth died in her youth). There are still some relatives back there.

    I am the third child of Paul and Dorthy (Kennedy). I live in Georgia now.
