Richard O'Brien (email@example.com
I'm currently researching my father's family, one of
the many O'Brien clans in the area. It seems they
settled after the Robinson influx, in Douro.
Unfotunately, I'm having a bit of trouble 'crossing
the pond' to Ireland. The story (unconfirmed) goes
that my GG Grandfather John O'Brien (Not very
imaginative with names in those days) came from Cork
via Boston, married my GG Grandmother Mary Fitzgerald
(possibly in Boston), and lived and died in Duoro in
1867, though his wife lived on to Jan. 26, 1911.
Unfortunately, I can't seem to pin down the year of
settlement or his year of birth. Can't seem to locate
a death notice, passage notice, marriage notice etc..
If you have a minute, any words of wisdom or pointers
in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
