|I am trying to obatain information about the O'Rourke Family of Wappingers Falls, NY.A Thomas O'Rourke purchased property in the village in the year 1840 and had a son, William, born in 1851. William had three children, Thomas, John C., and Mary.I am trying to trace the family back to their origins in Ireland.|
I am also interested in information concerning the John Mauder family.John Mauder came from Frankfurt-Am-Main and married an Irish girl by the name of Shields (Sheilds?)who may have come from Naas, Co. Kildare.They had five children, Mary, William, George,Bertha and Raymond. I would like to know moe about their antecedents in Germany and Ireland.
I am willing to share what information I have which, unfortunately, isn't much.
