Mary O'Harrah, born abt. 1790, possibly Mayo or Leitrim, Ireland
Does anyone know a Mary O'Harrah, age 60 in 1850. She must have been born in Ireland about 1790.
She is listed as living with Thomas and Bridgett O'Hara in Buffalo, New York, in the 1850 census, so she could be the mother of either one of them, from Leitrim or Mayo in Ireland, most likely.
Others in the household include Thomas Barry, age 4, born in Canada, (most likely Ontario)
Bridgett McCarty, 9, born in Ireland (Leitrim?)
William Wilson, 13, born in Michigan
Also, the children of Thomas and Bridgett were John,
Charles, and Martin.
We believe that his family came from Mayo to Leitrim to Ontario, Canada, to the US. They may have gone through Michigan at some point before landing in New York.
