[sent August 19th]

Today is August 19th. On this date in 1951, seven-year-old Dennis J. Ahern
[me] of Rockport, Massachusetts, went to sea in a borrowed 10-foot skiff.
It wasn't until the wee hours of the following day before I was found by a
lobster boat drifting a couple of miles off the coast.
See for the
newspaper story.

The Ahern obituary page has now passed the 4,100 mark. The earliest new
obituary is for John Ahearne, Esq., a solicitor from Cork, who died at
Ranelagh, Dublin, 19 July 1839. The most recent new obituary is for
Eleanor Marie (Stohlgren) Ahern of Contra Costa, Calif., 15 August 2010.

I've added a link to a page on the Aherns of Castlemagner, County Cork,

For those of you with County Clare ancestors, I've added an index of
Aherns in the County Clare Tithe Applotment books. See
