MULHARE", a son of EDWARD MULHARE.I WILL APPRECIATE ANY HELP, OR INFORMATION ABOUT ROSS MULHARE, AND HOW I AM LIKELY/POTENTIALLY RELATED, BY IRISH ANCESTORY ROOTS.A PHOTO WOULD BE HELPFUL TO ESTABLISH A PATTERN OF RESEMBLANCE IN INHERITANCE RELATION TO CONFIRM A LIKENESS, AND INDEED A KINSHIP.
Please help me if you can.I would like to hear from you, if you have any information about ANY Mulhare(s), particularly ROSS E. MULHARE.
