  • Is it known if John had any siblings?

    I am researching a Johanna Meara (as listed on her death certificate) who migrated to the U.S. in approx the late 1840's-early 1850's. She setteld on Long Island, NY where she married Thomas White between 1852-1857. Together they had 6 children. Other variations of her last name spelling include (Mara, O'Mara, O'Meara and Maher) all obtained from death records of her children.

    Thank you,
