John O'Gorman, my grandfather, came from Ireland and settled in New York City. He had several brothers and sisters: Annie, Katie, Michael and perhaps others. He married Norma Fogazzi about 1905 and had four children (Jack, Ann, Kitty, Norma). He died of pneumonia brought on by alcoholism in 1913. Looking for information about Irish roots or the Carney family in County Clare. Please contact Thanks.

I am looking for any information about my ggrandfather, Patrick O'Gorman. All I know about him is that he was born around 1895 and married Catherine Ann Kelly. They lived in Chicago around 1915, had five daughters: one of which was my grandmother (Catherine Ann Perkins - b. 1919, 2nd daughter). They moved to Beloit, WI. after her birth. He disappeared in 1924 and was declared dead 7 yrs. later. Any info. would be great!

Hello Lynn,

Let me explain how I am replying to the O'Gorman research. Recently, I watched a wonderful movie on video, CAMILA. Actually, I had no interest in watching this film, which is in Spanish with English sub-titles, but when I read the synposis on the jacket and saw that it was based on the true story of Camila O'Gorman who was a member of the Argentenian aristocracy in the middle part of the 19th century, I all of a sudden became keenly interested. Since that time, I have been surfing the interet to see if any descendants of this Argentenian family are still living in Buenos Aires, and here I am contacting you.

Another bit of historical interest, the place where Camila's grandfather was born was Ennis, Co. Clare, and my grandfather came from around the same area. When my great-grandmother died in Ennis, Co.Clare in 1869, there was a Roy O'Gorman, J.P. who was at her funeral. Just recently a cousin whom I was able to communicate with through the Hynes internet sent me a copy of this obituary. My great-grandmother's name was Elizabeth O'Connell Hynes, and her father was a solicitor as well was my great-grandfather.

My research into the Irish settlers to Argentina has stirred my interest in the Irish settlers to Argentina that perhaps, I might look into going down there next year.
Lynn, let's stay in touch.

Kindest regards,
