Good evening, I am Peter John Mulhare, and I like you are tracking my family roots.My Great Grandfather came from Ireland to Australia in the late 1830's, had two wives and 17 children, my grandfather was the youngest of these.My Great Grandfather died in southern New Zealand in 1889 and my Grandfather in 1924.
In my internet searches I have come across Major Ross E Mulhare USAF who was killed flying an F117 Stealth fighter in 1986 when these aircraft where on the super secret list (note in the article it's called an F19!)take a look at this URL http://www.ufomind.com/area51/articles/1986/lanews_860713.htmlhttp://www.ufomind.com/area51/articles/1986/lanews_860713.html
It is an article from the Dailly News of Los Angeles dated July 13 1986.If you search a little further from this link you will come across USAF reports on the accident which were released at a much later date.Ross E Mulhare's father is Edward A Mulhare (not the actor). Ross has a son currently serving in the USAF but unfortunately I can't remember his name and my references to him got lost in a hard drive crash here about 6 month's ago.The son of Ross contacted another relative of mine living in Brisbane Australia about 2 years ago, with some of his family history.
Hope this gives you some clues for your search. Please let me know how you get on.
Happy Hunting! Peter Mulhare Whangarei New Zealand
