The Ahern obituary page has now reached the 3,775 mark. The earliest new
obituary is for Tipperary native Thomas Ahern who died at Grey River,
New Zealand, 20 March 1893. The most recent obituary is for Rockport
artist Martin R. Ahearn, who died September 27. Martin's family had lived
near us in Arlington before they moved to Rockport where we also had a
summer home. Although I never found any connection between our families, I
always thought of Martin as being a cousin and enjoyed stopping in his
gallery in Rockort to look at his paintings. He did a lot of his painting
on trips to Ireland. I've set up a memorial page for him so you can see
some of them at
