I am researching the family of Peter O'Hara and his wife Sarah McCormick.
The 1870 census shows the newlyweds as living next door to the family of
James and Elizabeth McCormick and their children - twins William and Belle
age 23, Alice age 5, Elizabeth age 3 and Mary A. age 2 months.
I'm suspecting that Sarah McCormick is also James and Elizabeth's daughter
and that Peter O'Hara met Sarah through her William who "works in the Ore
Bed" just as Peter O'Hara did.
If anyone knows anything about these families, would you please contact me.
I am Peter and Sarah's great-great-granddaughter.
