  • Marilea,

       Glad you found the information useful. I am still looking for information about John's parents in Waterford and if he had any brothers or sisters. Would you like to connect to exchange family info? Thanks.

  • Marilea,

       Sounds good, check out my ancestry.com tree of O'Brien's as there are many pictures and docs depending on what you are interested in. I was born in Albany, NY near where John O'Brien and 4 sons were potatao farmers in Pittstown, NY after they emgrated in 1869. My grandfather was the youngest son, Martin, who was born in Ireland that same year. Do you have a tree in ancestry.com that I can look at ? My Dad was James O'Brien, the last son of Martin born in 1918 in Troy, NY. Where are you connected to Martin ? I don't have too much outside of Martin's family past 1940 so I would love to fill in any blanks. I am also in the DNA database at ancestry.com, are you in that too? I would love any old pictures that I don't have. Please let me know what you might be looking for.

    Thanks.

    Kevin
