Your great grandfather, Joseph John Mara was born in Roxbury, MA. It is spelled Meara-O'Meara-O'Marrow-O'Mara in archival records. He was born in December 14, 1894, to John Meara and Annie Falvey. He had three Falvey aunts. His brothers-Francis and George also went to live with one of the three Falvey aunts after their parents died. Uncle John Falvey (brother to Bessie, Mary, and Theresa Falvey) and Aunt Bridget Morrissey-Falvey took him in. Joseph worked for the railroad early in life and later a credit manager. I researched that he had two daughters-Virgina and Elizabeth-both married in 1951. He lived on Hitchcock in Worcester, MA.
This line of O'Mearas are from County Kerry, Ireland- Killarney and Tralee. The family came to Boston in the mid 1880's as laborers. Daniel O'Meara- brother to your gggrandfather John-is my ggrandfather (settled in Quincy, MA). Daniel's and John's other siblings include Timothy, Michael, and Julia. They all married in Boston to others from County Kerry and County Cork. Their mother Johanna Bresnahan O'Meara also made it to Boston. She died in 1906 of pnuemonia and is buried at Holyhood cemetery in Boston.
