My Great Grandfather was William O'Hearn, born aprox. August 1877 in Fall River, Mass. From the information I gathered his mother's name was Ellen Whalon, from Ireland, and his father's name was Maurice (Morriss)O'Hearn, also from Ireland. He was married to Johanna Sheahan who died in 1913. They had five children, William (1906-1906), Maurice (1908-1914), Mary (Dec.1906-1987), Lillian (1910-2001,My Grandmother) and John (1912-1994). He had a brother David (1869-1970) and sister Mary (aprox. 1872, married a Patrick Healy). There may be other children but I have yet to locate them.
My Grandmother, who married Joseph E. Jackson (around 1930) and had three children; Joseph L. Jackson (1931-1998), Robert Jackson (?-1976) and Cathy Jackson (1945-1975, My mother), talked very little about her family other than she was born in Fall River, Mass, had lived at St. Vincent's Orphange in the 1920's and then lived with their unlce Patrick Healy in the 1930's.
I was hoping to locate information on William and/or connect with relatives that might still be around. It appears that the Fall River, Mass and RI are dominant areas that the family lived in.
Thanks so much,
