(Received November 30,
O'Hara's of Rush, Dublin, Ireland
Looking for information on the O'Hara's of Rush, Dublin, Ireland. Large
family consisting of possibly 13 children (John I, Thomas, James,
Joseph, Anne, John II, Eleanor, William, Mary Ann, Francis, Alice and
Louis) born in that order between 1827-1850. Some emigrated to the
Boston area (John II, and Francis) in the 1850's, possibly others.
My great, great grandfather John II married a
Margaret and lived on Henchmann Street in North End according to the
1880 census. He worked as a laborer, then as a fish monger. His brother
Francis settled in Boston, then Winchester and started FJ O'Hara
One manifest shows Francis and his daughter Hanora returned to the US
from Austrailia (maybe to visit family?) Rumor has it some/many of the
13 children emigrated there.
Any help appreciated.
