O'Herrin, O'Hearn, O'Harien & other variations - Oak Creek Wisconsin
Posted by: Carole Haas (ID *****4127) Date: March 06, 2004 at 11:37:11

Looking for anyone with information on the descendants of JAMES O'HERRIN (abt 1810-1885) who owned land in Oak Creek, Milwaukee Co., Wisconsin. He and his wife Mary (UNK), were born in Ireland. Came to America in 1830's. Lived for awhile in Illinois where at least one child, Thomas, was born. Possibly 12 children born. Married twice.
Original land grant shows that he arrived in Oak Creek, Wisconsin in 1838.
Official documents and headstones show name spelled O'HERRIN, but have also seen the name spelled, and possibly changed to:

O'Hearn
O'Hurn
O'Harien
O'Herne
O'Hearin
O'Heerin

Any information on this family would be appreciated.
