Hello from POrtland Oregon,
I know of the Robert Vahey of Kitsap WA. As I recall he worked for an oil Company for many years,
They were distantly related to Vaheys that came out of Wilkes-BarrePA, and related to a Eugene Vahey(retired) of FL.
For some info on Vaheys go to a web site I have posted about Vaheys. Go to http://home.integrityonline.com/vahey
Jack in sunny Portland(at least temporarily)
