Funeral Card Friday/Michael O'Hara

     This funeral card from 1934, is that of my great, great Uncle Michael O'Hara, alias Michael O'Hora.  The O'Hora surname was used til around 1925.


     Michael was born in Aurelius, NY September 23, 1858 to James O'Hora and Maria McGarr.  He moved with his parents to Littleville, NY when he was nine years of age.  He was a farmer and livestock dealer in addition to operating a threshing business.  He died after a short illness at the family farm in Littleville.

This is the only photo I have of Michael.  He is the one on the far left wearing the hat.  Doesn't he look alot like Uncle Joe from Petticoat Junction?
