William James O'HARA [Parents] was born on 9 Jul 1873 in Glooria, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon. He was christened on 9 Jul 1873. He died on 26 Nov 1931 in Philadelphia. He was buried on 1 Dec 1931 in Holy Cross Cemetery, Philadelphia. William married Susan (Susie) MCMENAMIN on 29 Apr 1903 in St. Charles Boromeo Church, Kellyville, Pennsylvania.

Sponsors at William's baptism were Patrick O'Hara and Joanna O'Hara.

William emigrated to the United States aged 24, arriving in Philadelphia on 25 April 1897.

I have been told by Jerry Dallahan, a grandson of William, that William was met on his arrival in Philadelphia by his first cousin named Hugh (who was also known as Hubert) O'Hara. Hugh was a son of William's uncle Andrew O'Hara and his first wife, Margaret Gaffney. William soon found work as a bartender in Philadelphia and eventually ran his own saloon in the city. Hugh was also a liquor dealer and both men were very successful businessmen and their families lived very comfortable lives. Even during Prohibition (1920-1933) William was able to continue in business by making his own liquor in the basement of his home which his daughters would transport to the saloon a few blocks away.

Jerry Dallahan has also told me that William had a cousin, Rev. Robert E. McKeon, living in St. Louis, Missouri. William did have a cousin (who was actually both a first cousin once removed and a second cousin once removed) named Mai O'Hara (1900-1971) who was married to a Joe McKeon of Edenmore, Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. Could William and Fr. Robert McKeon have been connected (perhaps not a blood connection) through Joe? A search of US Federal Census records shows that 35-year-old Robert was living in Missouri in 1930.

Susan (Susie) MCMENAMIN [Parents] was born on 7 May 1876 in Kellyville, Pennsylvania. She died on 21 Oct 1959 in 323 Long Lane, Stonehurst, Pennsylvania. She was buried on 24 Oct 1959 in Holy Cross Cemetery, Philadelphia. Susan married William James O'HARA on 29 Apr 1903 in St. Charles Boromeo Church, Kellyville, Pennsylvania.

Susie's parents were both born in Ireland. She and William had eight grandchildren, including a grandson who was a Christian Brother and whose name in religion was Br. Manus Borromeo.
