Ana Rodriguez Fernandez wrote on February 25, 2024: I'm just getting in touch to thank the O'Hara family -- your collection of genealogy research sites were such a huge help! This weekend I'm helping my granddaughter Maria with an Ellis Island/family tree project she's working on for her Social Studies class. As the daughter of an immigrant family, I've always loved learning about our heritage and culture...this project is fun for both of us hehe! Her teacher asked the class to put together a report exploring where their family came from. They are required to define the vocabulary related to their family history research, interview an elder family member to gain more insight on their heritage and write a journal entry describing what a day in the life of an immigrating family was like. You listed some wonderful websites to cite in the report -- we really appreciate the help! Maria has also asked me to send you this guide that she found on building your family tree: It's a nice overview with lots of research tips and tools for tracing your family's lineage! The question asking tips on here were perfect for Maria's interview portion of the project. We didn't see it listed, but Maria thought it might help other families! Can you include it on your page for her? ( ...I'd love to share this with Maria's teacher if you use it! I'm hoping she'll get some extra credit! The next round of report cards come out in a week and she could really use some help. Will you let me know? Thank you again! Mrs. Ana Rodriguez Fernandez

Rhianon Gendreau wrote on January 30, 2024: Hello, My name is Rhianon Gendreau (Rannow). However my biological maiden name would have been O'Hara, had it not been for a last minute marriage that occured with my maternal grandmother. I am looking for my biological grandfather. His name is Patrick O'Hara. I met him one time about 20 years ago at his home in Thousand Islands, New York. I'm looking to learn more about my heritage, when my bloodline came to America, where we are from in Ireland, family history. Also hereditary health issues I might need to be aware of. When I met him, he was married to Patty. Thank you, Rhianon Gendreau

Karen Purdy Stanley wrote on November l 3, 2021: My grandfather on my father’s side of my family was actually my step grandfather. His name was Edward O’Hara an immigrant from Ireland. He married Iva O. Baldwin (possibly related to the Vanderbilt Family). Edward was a dairy farmer. They lived in Little Falls, NY. As a child I visited in the summer. The names associated with my grandparents that lived nearby were Anna, Mary, Frank, Ray ?, and my playmates, Maureen, Aileen, Monica and Theresa. Those girls had the O’Hara last name but I never knew who their parents were. I think Anna and Mary were their aunts. There was a teenage cousin named Charles, handsome with curly black hair, he had a pretty sister also. His parents might have been Marian and John O’Hara. When I was 9 years old my parents and I (the Purdy’s) moved to Fl. I missed my NY ‘family’ that lived ‘on the farm’ near Utica, NY. The 40s and 50s time period.
PS. My step grandfather was Edward O’Hara. While I did not find information about him, I did find Theresa Van Allen’s name there. She was an O’Hara who lived at the dairy farm and was my friend and playmate. I visited her in the 1990’s. Such a sweet lady she is. My quest has been to find out more about Edward, just curious. I know he and my grandmother (not Irish) have long since died but I have some Irish DNA so have interest in Ireland.

Kathy O'Hara Gracyalny wrote on August 10, 2021:I have been unsuccessful in tracing my O'Hara ancestry. My father is Gerald Joseph O'Hara born 1933 and deceased 1977. His father was Joseph Crawford O'Hara. I know that his dob is 12/18/1889 and that he was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylivania. He married young to Anna Volava or Volata and divorced young also. Had a daughter, Gladys from that marriage (lived in Indiana for a time). He married my grandmother, Angela Niebergall-O'Hara in Chicago where my Dad was born. Joseph's father was born in New York and his mother was born in Ireland. But I have been unable to learn anything more about who Joseph's parents were and their ancestry back to Ireland. It interesting that my DNA results showed a higher percentage of Scottish than Irish. If anyone can help make some kind of connection, it would be appreciated!

From what I understand they had a child together by the name of Edna O'Hara (who) came from Fall River, Massachusetts, and James O'Hara from what I can understand passed away un married (?) at St Elizabeth home he left my great-grandmother with his child Edna. I am just trying to find out information about my great-grandfather as my aunt has never met him and it would be her grandfather. We know he passed away at St Elizabeth's at Fall River but we're thinking that he has a sister, that is also (with) deceased name Helen but had children. Any information would be wonderful. Webmaster's comment: Regarding the children's home at Fall River, see (or Google) for example: S. J. Kleinberg's book: Widows and Orphans First: The Family Economy and Social Welfare Policy, 1880-1939 (published by Unviversity of Illinois Press, 2006).

Daniel Kelly wrote on March 10, 2019: Does the O'Hara family have any details of the 'Valentine O'Hara' from the highwayman song? There is a running discussion on the folk music forum about whether the 'real' person was 'Allan Tine of Harrow' or 'Valentine O'Hara'. Some historical evidence of a military man turned highwaymen in the O'Hara family might settle the argument. Earliest publication of the ballad I can find is 1802, so would have to be before then and after 1617. From: Folklounge (Daniel Kelly). See also: YouTube channel (Daniel Kelly) and Valentine O'Hara.

Mary from Rochester wrote on March 17, 2017: My great-grandfather, John O'Hara came from Killimore, Galway, and was born in 1878. My great-great grandfather was James O'Hara born about 1850. His wife was Honoria Killackey. My great-great-great gandfather was Mathias O'Hara born about 1820. His wife was Margart Brenan. I believe this family spent time in Portumna, Kilemore and Taum.

My great-grandfther John O'Hara, moved to the U.S. in 1899 and he settled in Rochester, NY. Other names associated with this family are: Kenney, Lawless, Killacky, Carolan, Larkin, Mooney.

We estimate he was about 15 years old at the time. He later married Mary and they had two daughters: Mary and Delhia. It seems Mary never married but Delhia married a Fitzgerald and they had 6 children (five daughters and one son). The son died around age 23. One daughter also died very young. Three daughters never married and the last daughter married a Phipps and had 2 daughters. One became a Nun for 60+ years and the other is my Mom who had 6 children. I don't think there is anyone around who could be related....unless they are a decendent of my great, great grandfathers brother or sister - if he had any!

We had a reunion two years ago and was represented by five generation which was nice. Although born in Foxford Co, Mayo, I live in Clonmel Tipperary since 1979. I have two sons who played GAA football for Tipperary - What a waste of Mayo Blood !. I was a member of Clonmel Corporation 1987 to 1992 and served as Mayor Of Clonmel 1990-1991 as a member of the Fine Gael Party. Keep up the good work Dominick O'Hara PC.

Jane O'Hara wrote on January 2, 2002: How interesting to read messages from O'Haras, all of whom sound proud of the name, as I have always been! My first direct ancestor that I know about is Henry O'Hara, born in 1730 in or near Frederick MD. One of his sons, Henry, Jr., and wife, Margaret Brown O'Hara, left Maryland in 18ll and emigrated to Randolph County IL. Currently, an eighth generation of U.S. O'Haras is growing up on the original Illinois homestead. My assumption is that the Frederick MD Henry's parents immigrated from Ireland, but so far, I have found this information elusive.

Kathy Flynn Simons wrote on July 31, 2001: What a wonderful site! I have been trying to find information on Nancy O'Hara (1790?-1870?) from Cloonacool. She married Pat McCarrick (1781- 1864) from Loughill?. They had a daughter, Catherine McCarrick (1844- 1899), who married my great grandfather, Thomas Flynn on 3 Oct 1865, in Tobercurry, Sligo. These O'Hara's began in 1616 with a grant of land at Mullaun by Teighe O'Hara to his brother Cormac. He was the forebearer of Nancy's father. Nancy's brother Paddy O'Hara married and stayed at home, and was the father of Fr. Denis O'Hara, Administratoar in Ballaghadereen and later as a parish priest of Kiltimagh. His other son was ArchDeacon Roger o"Hara, a parish priest of Kilmovee from 1882 to 1924. Are there any O'Hara's out there with a McCarrick connection? Many thanks, in advance. Kathy Flynn Simons.

David Kevin O'Hara wrote on July 4, 2001: Hi there to all. I'd like to give my input to this guestbook and tell you a bit about the O'Haras in my family. The most distant relative is on William O'Hara who came from Sligo. He was born in the 1840s, apparently in Sligo. He came to England via the West coast at Maryport and teamed up with a girl called Jane Johnston, who came from Torprnhow in Cumberland. They arrived in the NE of England in about 1875 and eventually settled in Spennymoor. All of this detail can be seen by visiting the WorldConnect page identified above. If anybody has any O'Hara conncetions with the NE of England i'd be delighted to hear from them. You can contact me at the address given in this entry. Kind regards, Dave O'Hara. Address (url):

I'm an O'Hara by marriage and have been having a devil of a time finding info on my husbands family. The last person I can find is James Edward O'Hara who lived in New Jersey and was married to Catherine Hourrigan. They eventually lived in the Belleville/Bloomfield area of NJ. The records I have state that Catherine died in 1955 and was born in 1885, so I'm figuring that James should have those timelines or similar. Don't know if anyone here has any info on this branch but I thought what the heck! Keep up the good work! Linn O'Hara (

vivan g ohara wrote on October 25, 2000: Great to see a clan page. I met Dermot Ohara at Annaghmore House in Sligo a few years ago. They hold there the clan artifacts, like the original of The Book of OHara, and the clan drinking vessel. I suggested he do something to gather the clan, but he is a shy retiring man, who dutifully informed me that he was really a Cooper. When Charles Keane, his Great grandfather died, he did so without heirs, so he left Annaghmore estate to his sisters son, provided that he change his name from Cooper to Ohara ! There is another stately house called Coopers Hill of the main Slig rd, and owned by William OHara. I met his mother, dear old lady, who tells me that they take visiting gurests if anyone is in the area researching their roots. I'm a past managing Director of an American multinational, which had one of its factories in Donrgal.... and a British plc, now practising as a Management Accountant and tax Practitioner from manchester , u.k.
