24. Dear friend, I am sorry to interrupt you. C.W. O'Hara, S.J. wrote a book, named "an introduction to projective geometry" in 1936. I need the full name of the author C.W. O'Hara, S.J. . Also I would like to know which is the family name in it and which is the first name in it. I can't find the person in your web. Would you like to do me a favor? Thank you very much! yours Yihong Wu, Beijing, China
From Editor's Reply
Dear Yihong Wu, I checked out your author in the National Union Catalog, Pre-1956 Imprints: A cumulative author list representing Library of Congress printed cards and titles reported by other American libraries (volume 428, 1976). His full name is Charles Willibrord O'Hara (O'Hara is the surname) and he was born in 1886. The joint author of the book on projective geometry was Dudley Robert Bryant Ward, born 1901; both were Jesuit priests. The full title is: An introduction to projective geometry, by C.W. O'Hara S.J. and D.R. Ward S.J., London: Oxford University Press or Oxford: The Clarendon Press, 1937 & second edition 1944.

Subject: The book "Scarlett"
I'm reading the book "Scarlett" and was wondering if it was made into a film. Is it on video to rent or buy ??
I did a search for "Scarlett" at the ‘Internet Movie Database (imdb.com)’ and found the following. There is a film "Scarlett" (1996; http://us.imdb.com/Title?0117559) which is available on VHS video. The CBS TV series "Scarlett" (1994; http://us.imdb.com/Title?0108915) is available on VHS video and DVD. You might also be interested in the following "Review of Scarlett" (http://www.timothydalton.com/rscarlet.html). Hope this answers your question.
Enjoy the book and the film !

I was reading your page about the Titanic (http://www.oharas.de/TitanicOhara.html) and Monica O'Hara's book, about her "death" on it. I'd like to contact Monica O'Hara, or her husband, Joe Keeton. You haven't any contact details have you?. I've done web searches found nothing!
Sorry I don't have a contact address. I did web searches too and found one page repeatedly turning up: The Titanic Book Site.Com (http://www.titanicbooksite.com/author%20pages/OharaMonica.html). It appears that her name is Monica (Harding) O'Hara-Keeton. Other books by Monica O'Hara and Joe Keeton are found at the following link (http://www.addall.com/Browse/Detail/0709061471.html). Perhaps you could try contacting the publishers.

125. Dear Editor,
I am trying to find a book called ‘The Red Sailor’ written by Patrick O'Hara in the 60's. Any information on the book or author would be greatly appreciated,
From the webmaster's reply:
I found the following information about the book on the internet:
It is a fictional tale about a Royal Naval rating during the time of the Chinese communist/nationalist war, and his "adventures" while sailing from the UK to the far east station in Hong Kong.

126. Dear O'Hara's,
I am wondering if there are any O'Hara family gatherings being organised at the moment, and if so where and when?
I would also like to suggest the idea of organising an O'Hara family gathering in Ireland. Would people be interested in attending and/or participating in this?
I come from County Carlow in Ireland and myself and my brother, Seamus O'Hara, run a small brewery there. Our main product is of course, O'Hara's Celtic Stout (http://www.carlowbrewing.com/).
My idea for a family gathering is to get as many O'Hara's together as possible and to celebrate the skills and contributios of O'Hara to the world. This could include O'Hara art exhibitions, literary events, business seminars, political debates, food fairs, etc..
If anyone thinks this is a good idea, and is interested in discussing it further please let me know. Obviously I would hope that our brewery would get some publicity from this (I am an O'Hara after all!).

I have aquired 4 of his books The luck of the Lonely Sea, I Got No Brother, God came On Friday and The Yangtze Run, i see your message on the O'Hara website but as to date no replies, thanks for your help very kind of you.

201. The O'Haras in the «Oxford Dictionary of National Biography»

Charles O'Hara, first Baron Tyrawley (died 1724), pp. 626-627
Charles O'Hara (c. 1740-1802), army officer and colonial governor, pp. 627-628; (an illegitimate son of James O'Hara, second Baron Tyrawley)
James O'Hara, second Baron Tyrawley and Baron Kilmaine (1681/2-1773), pp. 628-629
Kane O'Hara, playwright (1711/12-1782), pp. 629-630
Volume 3 has an article on the pseudo Abel & Barnes O'Hara, pp. 668-670

Barnes O'Hara] (1796-1874) was also born at Kilkenny on 5 August 1796 ... The Banims wrote «The O'Hara Tales/ Tales from the O'Hara family» ... The Banims gained a lasting posthumous reputation as nationalist novelists and several of the novels were reprinted in the twentieth century.

205. Subject: Billy O'Hara of Newcastle, England, around 1900
I am researching the life of a pioneer aviator and racing driver, Arthur E George of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I have found a dead web link called "O'Haras 1900" which quotes "Mr A E George was a racing car enthusiast and grandad was his mechanic when they went racing at the Brooklands....", and, "Princess Patricia flew with grandad and promised him a .....".
I know Billy O'Hara worked for Arthur's firm George & Jobling and helped build Arthur's plane, travelling with him around the country to flyimg shows in 1910.
If the person who had that web site is still around, and sees this message, please get in touch with me. I am determined to give Arthur George (and Billy) their place in Britain's aviation and racing history.

268. Sergeant Miles O'Har(r)a (died 1876)
Did you know that Sgt. Miles O'Hara killed at the Battle of the Little Big Horn and listed on your family geneology, also shows the last name spelling of O'Harra? I have his only known individual photograph in uniform. He was promoted to Sgt. the day before he was killed in the "valley fight" portion of the battle. He is noted in survivor's journals as the first soldier killed in that historic confrontation of soldiers and Indians.
The Irish members of the 7th Cavalry are one of my keen interests, especially regarding the Battle of the Little Big Horn. My mother's maiden name was O'Harra and I have done alot of research concerning the family ... If you have any interest in any of the "other" O'Harras, let me know.

273. An "O'Hara letter" from San Francisco, April 18, 1906
The following thrilling letter, describing the sensations experienced by a sufferer from the San Francisco earthquake, was received by Mr Hugh O'Hara-Monan, of 32, Waverley Ave, Fairview, Dublin, from his brother, who was in the city at the time of the earthquake:
San Francisco California USA
18th April 1906.
My dear Hugh
A terrible earthquake has occurred here, followed by a disastrous fire, which is burning the whole town. Thousands are killed. I narrowly escaped with my life from the earthquake. I may not fare so well with the fire, which is something terrible. Everything is so miserably dreadful that I cannot describe it. It is fearful. It will take me quite a long time to survive the shock. It is another Pompeii. I am sending you the papers.
Every building was wrecked; churches were overthrown; & streets twisted into all kinds of shapes. The people are starving, & no food is to be had until relief trains come in. One has to sleep on sidewalks. And everything is so awful, fearfully dreadful; the shock is still "Ringing in My Ears". Millions of property has been destroyed. But you can read everything for yourself in the papers, which I will mail to you as soon as possible.
I am absolutely homeless now. The earthquake was felt all over the states. All the surrounding towns are a total wreck. San Francisco is a town about the size of Dublin. The population is almost 500,000, two-thirds of which are a1ready homeless. I have lost everything in the fire: the town is all in darkness and looks like a graveyard.
Everything is at a standstill, and the people will soon starve if relief does not come soon.
The earthquake started at 5 -15 o'clock in the morning. I was tossed in the bed like a boat in a rough sea. The shock lasted forty seconds. The fire is fierily raging all around me as I write, and soon will demolish the place in which I am writing this letter. I cannot say anything about the future and for the present I must only allow myself to be governed by circumstances. Hoping you are well. I remain
your affectionate brother B.
P.S. - This letter was written on a empty sardine - box
The recipient of the San Francisco letter is Mr Hugh Monan 32 Waverley Ave, Fairview ... Regarding the O'Hara connection - my cousin Val told me there was some family disputes within the family and they renounced the family name, even though in my Mother's family address book my great grandfather signed his name O'Hara - Monan.

298. The family motto “Virtute et Claritate”
I read some messages about the family motto on this site. The motto, or at least one of them I believe is "Virtute et Claritate". I do not know latin, but to me the literal translation is "With Virtue and Clarity". An English translation that I read on another site is "To be, not to pretend", or "Not to seem, but to be".
It would be good to have some agreement on the correct English version of it. I have taken Claritas to mean just that, clarity, or truthfulness, or honesty. Noble words indeed, but would they work today? My contribution for what it may be worth is "With Courage and Honesty".
Best wishes cousins,

320. Facts about O'Haras in Scotland
I was browsing a very interesting surname website recently and discovered that the location in mainland UK with most O'Hara surnames was Glasgow. In fact, I was amazed to discover from the same site that proportionately there are more O'Haras in Scotland than in the Republic of Ireland! It's a quite different story in N Ireland, though, where there seems to be a huge number.
I also found out that it is about the 900th most popular surname in the UK. And that, according to the census of 1881, Bradford was the place in the UK where you were most likely to bump into an O'Hara.
Thought someone might enjoy these interesting but largely useless facts !

324. Esther O'Hara's “The Witches Necklace”
I just wanted to let you know that my book is being published on the 30th of March 2006 and there is some information on the publisher's website now. (Unfortunatley in Swedish, but it can be of interest to other O'Haras worldwide anyway!).
My book is a children's book called "Häxan och halsbandet" (The Witches Necklace) and is about a wicked witch who has a magic necklace. She uses the necklace to create bad weather and terrorise the town of Trollhättan. She lives in a secret cave outside the town, up in the dark hilly forest. One day she loses her magic necklace and it is found by a little boy who is out for a walk in the woods with his mother. The witch then searches high and low for her necklace. She uses all sorts of spells and poisonous herbs to try and find it. Meanwhile, in the hands of the little boy, the necklace turns good, and works all kinds of little miracles...
Well that is a little summary. I may translate it one day and see if it is publishable in English.

430. John "Jack" O'Hara — Legendary Lawman from South Dakota
I'm the cemetery foreman for the RoseHill Cemetery in Spearfish, South Dakota and I'm just seeking info on a supposed infamous lawman from the Spearfish or Deadwood area named (according to our records) John "Jack" O'Hara. Any additional info about this man would sure be nice to have as part of the cemetery's records.
My records indicate that John "Jack" O'Hara (31 years old) lived between ?/?/1853 and 2/14/1884 when his life was taken by horse thieves. There are two other younger girls buried in his plot as well; Hattie O'Hara (6 yrs. old) lived between 5/22/1874 and 2/16/1880 and Maude O'Hara (3 yrs. old) who lived between 11/16/1877 and 2/18/1880. Another thing that is interesting is all of their dates of death. Could John have died in 1880 or the girls in 1884 and they were all murdered besides their mother whom we have no records of, or is it just a bizarre coincidence? The only conclusion i can come to is that one of their records is wrong and they were all murdered (except for the mother) or the girls died of disease and John was later murdered? Any info. that would be helpfull would sure be appreciated
Clark Hoyt — RoseHill Cemetery Foreman — Spearfish, SD.
P.S. They probably lived in the Deadwood, Spearfish, Lead, or Sturgis area(s) of South Dakota. I found a New York Times article via Google.com on John "Jack" O'Hara, it reads as follows:
DESPERATE FIGHT WITH COWBOYS
DEADWOOD, Dakota, Feb. 15.-Information was received here a few days ago that an attempt would be made by cowboys to rescue Jesse Pruden, arrested for horse stealing at Miles City, Montana, and en route for Deadwood. A party left Spearfish to assist the officer having Pruden in charge. On arriving at Stoneville, 75 miles north of Deadwood, yesterday, the posse was attacked by cowboys, and a man named O'Hara was killed and Fred Willard was wounded. One cowboy named Cunningham was killed. Another, whose name is unknown, was wounded and captured. The cowboys then fled. A party is now being organized at Spearhead to pursue the outlaws.

511. The meaning of the O apostrophe in O'Hara
What does the O' signify on Irish names? What is the origin (meaning) of the name?
the O' (really Ó or Uí), like Mac, in an Irish or Scottish (Gaelig) name means "son of". The name probably means something like "son of Hara". I'm James O'Hara so in Irish that would be Séamus Ó hEaghra. The feminine form of Ó is "ní" meaning "daughter of". Thus, a girl called Mary O'Hara would be Máire ní hEaghra. The gh in the name is an aspirated g and was abbreviated in the Gaelig script as g with a dot over it. See the O'Hara crest on the home page. Here's a link about a fifteenth-century O'Hara on the history page at this site.

527. The meaning of the apostrophe in O'Hara
Follow-up to: The meaning of the O apostrophe in O'Hara (Message no. 511)
The apostrophe in O'Hara does not mean son of O'Hara, but *grandson* of O'Hara. Nowadays it is often used as "Of" the O'Haras. My name is McCormick and I am descended from Laurence O'Hara (b 1770 in Co. Sligo, but moved to Co. Roscommon). He married Mary McDonagh and I have hundreds of their descendants listed on my tree at Ancestry.co.uk. If you are a member of Ancestry you can view my tree for free. "The McCormick (Niall) Family Tree" If you have any information that would help with the expansion of my tree, I would be really pleased to hear from you,

529. Looking for a Jack O'Hara that was a US soldier in the DC area early 1968
I am trying to locate a Jack (maybe John?) O'Hara that was in the DC area early 1968. He met a Susan Wright dosSantos who was 20 at the time. The relationship was very brief since she was newly married. She met him when she was out with her friend Tommy in the band. I don't have much more to go on. I know he took her home, smoked and visited her in her apartment bringing flowers. He was more that likely an officer (Lt. Col) in either the Navy or Air Force.
Any information would be helpful. Thank You,

I just stumbled across this site and it is teriffic. I didn't know it existed. I have been to the O'Hara Mill in Madoc and it is very nice. The park was closed for the season but we were able to walk the grounds.
I am a granddaughter of Evan Lewis O'Hara.

790. Does the O'Hara family have any details of the 'Valentine O'Hara' from the highwayman song? There is a running discussion on the mudcat.org 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.

821. Hampton Public Library: Beginner's Course on Historic Research and Genealogy
I would just like to say a quick word of thanks! As a youth services librarian and educator, I've been running a fun beginner's historic research and genealogy class over the last few months, and I thought you might enjoy hearing that we were able to get some great use out of your genealogical interest resource links list. We were even able to use some of this information for our most recent group project. Thanks so much for sharing! oharas.com/genealogy/index.html I hope you don't mind, one of our youngest, Anna has also asked me if I could share a piece that she and her mother found together which we've begun referencing as a group on Genealogy and Family History Research. I've included it below if you'd like to review! We noticed you don't have this one listed yet, but Anna was actually the one to bring up that this could be something you might like to include for any other young historic research enthusiasts who may also be coming across your information and have an interest in learning more about their family history during their down time, like our group! If you find you are able to add this one to your list, would you please let me know? We're meeting Friday afternoon, and I would absolutely love to surprise Anna and the group if you're able to do so - I'm hoping to keep spirits up in light of the past few years' challenges, and I think it would make her proud to know she was able to pay it forward and maybe even show her mother her contribution if it ends up being included!
Thanks again for all your help here,
Guide to Genealogy and Family History Research
