Descendants of William O'Hara

Elizabeth Jeffares (formerly O'Hara) and children


This photograph of Elizabeth Jeffares (née O'Hara) and her children was taken in New Zealand probably in the late 1920s. Standing, left to right: Joseph, Agnes and Annie. Seated: Charlotte, Mary, Elizabeth and Robert. Missing from picture: Thomas.

Elizabeth, who was born  in 1858 in Glooria, Cootehall, Co. Roscommon, emigrated to New Zealand where she met her husband,  Joseph Jeffares, whose parents were Irish-born. Joseph died in 1902 and Elizabeth died in the earthquake that struck Napier in 1931.

Elizabeth was a first cousin of Jane Lavin and Mud O'Hara (see earlier photos).
