Thanks for mentioning the remark about NY in a death notice in a Chicago paper
regarding a Houlihan from Kilkee, County Clare. If you find the New York-to-Chicago Houlihan connection please post. Don't know if I mentioned it but "my" Bridget Agnes Houlihan married a Patrick Joseph Harrigan III; they lived in New
York City approx 1880-1920. Therefore Harrigan "survivors" would also be relevant. O'Brien in Calif rings no bell with me. Thankx.
