Felix O'Hara, an Eighteenth-Century Settler in Gaspe, Quebec
Just came across your great web site. I
have a site "Our Gaspe Roots" dealing with the families and history of
the Gaspesie in Quebec. Felix O'Hara ( born abt 1732 in Antrim County
Ireland) and family were early settlers (1765) to this area, and very
prominent in Gaspe. I'm trying to find where members of this family
went from Gaspe...first- for data for my site, but second, and more
important...Gaspe, in 2009, is celebrating its 475th yr. since the
arrival of Jacques Cartier, and some of my Gaspe historian friends are
looking for information on O'Hara folk because of an historical paper
being written for the 475th celebrations......especially trying to
trace some that went West???
Can anyone help?
