I am attempting to track my maternal grandfather but have a bit of a convoluted story which isn't helping my search. My grandfather did not willingly provide information and provided very little. He was born January 4, 1898 as Harold Hewitt somewhere in County Cork (he did not specify exactly where). When WWI broke out, he wanted to fight but was not permitted since he was only 16. He therefore left Ireland for Canada, arriving here as 18 year old Patrick O'Connor. By posting a message here, I'm hoping that someone somewhere in County Cork will have some words of wisdom to pass along in the remote chance that someone may have a piece of my puzzle.
