677. Hi, I am looking for my grandmother June Meria O'Hara. From what I understand June and her sister came on a ship or boat to the United States. My grandmother from what I understand, went to San Antonia Texas. She got married on the Q Bar X Ranch and had a daughter. My grandmother died in a car fire when my mom was 3 months old. And my mom was then raised by mother's sister. She lived in Rockingham North Carolina . Does any one have info on this. I know none of the family. Thanks in advance, Gert.

686. Hi my name is Allannah O'Hara. I don't have a lot if any information about my biological fathers family. He is Robert Wesley O'Hara. I don't know his fathers name or his mothers maiden name, but his mothers name was Loraine O'Hara. My father was from Lima, Ohio area. I know my brother and I have a half brother and his name is Micheal, but not sure if his last name is the same as ours. I've been looking and have found nothing. My biological father is 1 of 12 maybe 13, they were all spilt up when their mom died I believe and their dad took off. So any kind of information would be wonderful.

689. I am looking for information on my great-grandfather John Terrence O'Hara. I have a WWI Registration Card to go off of. He was born 08/12/1880 in New York, however the 1920 census states 1883 but based on his birth month and age at the time he would've been born in 1882. He moved at some point to Minnesota. Did not marry but had 10 children with Minnie Leyde (1920 cenus states Minnie OHara). Children are: Fern Alice, John T, Daniel, Donald, Thomas, Frank, Leo, Patrick, Mary Jane... birth years range from 1914 to 1927. If anyone has any information regarding John I would greatly appreciate it. I have nothing but the 1920 census and WWI Draft Card.

697. Hello, I have found the U.S. discharge papers of Michael O'hara from 1880. They state his birth place as Sligo, Ireland. It states his height at 5' 4", light complexion, blue eyes, and brown hair. There are other facts, including his captain's name, company, regiment, etc. It is difficult to read some of the words due to the cursive that was handwritten in the appropriate blank spaces. It shows he served his 5 year contract from 1875-1880. If I can find a living relative I would like to get this to them. This was found in Germantown TN.

699. Canadian World War I Veteran Lieutenant William Alexander O'Hara
Recipient of British War Medal and Victory Medal (1925)
Extract from a letter to Cadet Major Andrew Hunter fom the Acting Director General, Commemoration Division, Veterans Affairs Canada:
I am writing on behalf of the Minister of Veterans Affairs in response to your correspondence regarding the service of Lieutenant William Alexander O’Hara. I would first like to take this opportunity to respectfully acknowledge the dedicated service of your late cousin, Lieutenant William Alexander O’Hara, during the First World War. All Canadians benefit from the many sacrifices made by those who served and we remain truly grateful to them.
While Veterans Affairs Canada does not keep files on former Canadian Forces personnel, the Department does have access to military service documents, which are maintained by Library and Archives Canada. Library and Archives Canada also maintains information on bravery medals, such as the Military Cross, found written on citation cards. The citation cards indicate every order and decoration awarded to the Canadian Expeditionary Forces during the First World War.
Departmental officials have obtained the service records for Lieutenant O’Hara through Library and Archives Canada. It was confirmed that he was awarded the British War Medal and the Victory Medal, both issued to him in 1925. I have enclosed a background sheet for each of these medals for your information ...We were not able to find indication that Lieutenant William Alexander O’Hara received the Military Cross.
