Family lore has it that the picture, linked above as; Chicago O'Connor Relatives ??? was taken about 1915 at "The Pier" at Narragansett, RI and included a group of cousins visiting from Chicago.Rosetta O'Connor is sitting in the back row and Jane Casey both sitting and in white and both grandaughters of Timothy O'Connor and Jane Crawford.I, (Tom O'Connor) would love to hear from other O'Connor descendants who might see any family resemblance.
