I am looking for a Joseph Clarke Orourke, my Mom's dad. He married in Detroit MI to a Marion or Marian Wheeler, had one daughter Anita. Was not a kind man, my Mom disowned him and her mother about the time she got married at 17 (her mom had mental issues which were not helped by a unloving partner). My Dad says that she said he lived in Penn at one time. I was told that he was from hill folk, served in the Army during WWII in the US, he was too old to go over seas. She said that he was a bit older then her mother who was 23 in 1945. I met him once in 1972 or so, once. My Mom did not let us talk to him, in fact he came in - sat down for a short time, and then he was never seen by us again. I am not too interested in him, but I am interested in tracing the family line - and do not hold one persons actions against anyone else. My Mom passed away in'86.
