Subject: Oldcorn Family
Date: Wednesday, August 15, 2001
I was very happy to hear from you I hope we can help each other My fathers mother was an Oldcorn. Her family came to this country in the early 1900's. Rebecca fell in love with Harold Deighan, but her father was so up tight about it he would not let her marry because Harold was Catholic and Irish. Harold went off to war and was killed in WW1 1918. Rebecca died in Nov.10.1917. So as you can see my father never knew his parents. only his grandparents. He was raised my his mothers parents, and his aunts & uncles were like brothers and sisters.
