Hi, my name is tom faherty jr. I was just searching th web and saw there was a site for Faherty. I was curious. It is not a common name. Here is a little about my family. My father is 1st generation irish. his parents came over from Ireland (county cork and galway)Met and married in Oregon.
Mr Faherty was married before but I do not know much about the first family. They lived in eastern oregon, sheep herding and later working for the railroad. The family later moved to Portland Oregon. Mr faherty died walking railroad track in south junction Oregon. They raised 4 children,Mary, Thomas (my father), Jim, john, in that order. There are a number of the Faherty family living in Portland. All related. All have familes living in Portland. Mrs Faherty was a Denning before moving to the USA. She lived in Condon Oregon.
Mary my aunt, married Mr phil mitchel who is from Ireland. They live in Portland.
