Dad's grandfather, R.T. O'Gara.
The resemblance between him,
and dad's father, and dad,
are certainly noticeable!
Dad's father Peter Francis O'Gara.
He died, when dad was 17 I believe.
He hung himself. It was Dad
who found him, on Christmas morning.
Dad was often melancholy at Christmas.
An experience like that marks you forever.
A newspaper cover featuring dad's parents.
The correction in the next picture says this is
Peter Francis and Catherine McGrin, but says
they're dad's grandparents.
I assume that's wrong.
Added info: My sister Catherine says dad
always said her name begins with a "C"
to differentiate hers from his mom,
whose name he said began with a "K".
Since the newspaper articles at right spell it
"Catherine" with a "C", I don't know what's
right, so it's for future generations to answer.
And the article inside, with errors.
...And the corrections to the article.
Mom's dad, Ray Higgins,
in a silly ad for his Gambles store.
He's wearing a wig, or a mop perhaps.
