Here is another Jerimiah/Jerry O'leary Story - I posted my YORK finds on the YORK discussion board - I am hoping to stop by the Historical Center in early April- its a awesome place.

J. J. O'CONNELL'S ACCOUNT OF CATHOLICS IN YORK COUNTY
(Rev. J. J. O'Connell, Catholicity in the Carolinas and Georgia, ARS SACRA, Westminister, Maryland, 1964. A facsimile reprint of the Sadlier Edition, 1879.)

"At Yorkville there was for many years but one Catholic man, Hugh McGinnis, who was advanced in years, and, though married, left no children; he was a pious man and died during the war. Jeremiah O'Leary, who married into the O'Hare family, was a good man, and died about 1850. He left many children, whom I instructed in the faith with great pains, and was fully encouraged by their mother, who was not a Catholic. I fear they have fallen away. They were all baptized. Thomas O'Farrell married a sister of Mrs. O'Leary, but he ceased to practice his religion, and neither he nor his numerous off spring are known as Catholics, which is to be regretted, because they are a respectable and industrious family of children. Father Joseph O'Connell attended this mission during the war; the faithful having died or removed to other places, but few remained, and it was scarcely attended at all for a long time until the appointment of Father Folchi, who remained some years and withdrew to the Jesuit house in California toward the close of 1877.
