Thomas Francis O'Connor Omaha Nebraska 1850 - 1948?
Posted by: Dennis o'connor (ID *****4673) Date: December 16, 2005 at 20:44:54
  of 751

My great grandfather's name was Thomas Francis O'Connor.

He had a son Frank and seven daughters (Margaret, Agnes, Mame are the only names I know).

He was a big man about 6'9". He married a woman named Kilker (a guess).

Family stories say he had a very large Victorian House which was later made into a historic home.

He had some kind of awning company.

He was involved in local politics. (Councilman, alderman?)

He was a native of Ireland.

He was living in Omaha after the war (1946?)

He died in California while visiting my grandparents approx. 1948.

Any information or sources for information would be greatly appreciated.
