I can remember as a child, my grandmother telling me she had cousins in Fall River. Her maiden name was O'Keefe. Her father was Thomas A. O'Keefe born in Ware, MA in 1879.
Thomas' father was Michael Keefe, born in County Wexford, Ireland abt 1844. Michael had two brothers who were priests. They were John O'Keefe (b. 1842 County Wexford, Ire, d. 1923 Monson, Hampden, MA) and Thomas O'Keefe (b. 1860 Ware, Hampshire, MA d. 1941 Springfield, MA). Their father was Thomas Keefe (b. Abt 1812 County Wexford, Ire d. 1874 Ware, MA). Thomas Keefe's father was Jeremiah Keefe. I have no other information on Jeremiah. However, I have extensive information on the descendants of Jeremiah's son, Thomas. If this is of any interest to you, let me know. I do know that several members of our O'Keefe line settled in Hyde Park, MA when they arrived abt 1847 from County Wexford.
