I feel so lucky to have found you. My name is Anne Houlihan O'Connor. I am doing a genealogy on my mother's family. My mother's name was Kathleen (Katherine) McKenna Houlihan. Her mother was Theresa Morrow McKenna sister of Catherine Agnes Morrow who married Olaf Hoilien your greatgrandfather. I have no info. re their dates of birth or death. I understand that Catherine A. was postmistress in Rudolph, WI. I don't know what Olaf's occupation was.I believe he was of Norwegian descent. Catherine was born in County Longford, Ireland, my mother's birthplace.
It was my understanding that he was a homesteader and lived
not too far from John Morrow (Catherine Agnes' brother) who owned a store. I understand your grandfather Robert Olaf had four children.Can you fill me in on your grandfather's siblings and spouses (dates of birth & deaths). I have the following names:Joseph Charles, Cecelia Margaret, Robert Olaf, Josephine Marie, Clarence Edward, Maurice James, M.D.,
Frances Elizabeth, Kathleen Agnes. I understand that Cecelia
lives with Francis Eliz. in Reno Nevada. I believe that Frances who was a nurse and her husband had 3 boys and 2 girls.
Josephine gave this info to my mom some years ago. My mother died in 1995. We lived in New York and my husband and I now live in Jupiter. (400 Ocean Trail Way, Unit 1410, Jupiter, Fl 33477.561 746-1757
If you send me your address, I will send you my genealogy and maybe you can help me fill in the blanks.
Did you get to the reunion? I hope you had a great time.Tell me all about who you met there if you have the time. Do you have an e-mail address?
Thanks very much, Anne
