In Reply to: Ahern website updates by Dennis Ahern of 387

[sent October 3rd]

Today is October 3rd.

On this date in 1884, John Ahern was born in Aghada, County Cork. I
learned this from an index of Aherns in Royal Navy Enlistments, 1853-1923
at which
has links to Records of the Admiralty, Royal Navy and related bodies at
See for a sample
of a service record.

The Ahern obituary page has now passed the 4,175 mark. The earliest new
obituary is for Abbie O'Hearn, of New Brunswick, New Jersey, who died of a
lingering illness six weeks after her husband, William, had been run over
by a train. The most recent new obituary is for John Joseph Ahearn of
Plano, Texas, 23 September 2010.

about this is that the news stories and obituaries of the time, say that
John C. Ahern, who took his mother's maiden name of Lockren, was the son
of James Ahern, who was still alive and who died in 1899. Who Henry W.
Ahern is and whether he is actually related to John Ahern, or whether
James Ahern who is listed in the obituaries as John's father, comes
forward, remains to be seen.]; Southern Pacific Company filed a demurrer
in Ahern's damage claim, 18 March 1897; Henry W. Ahern filed an amended
claim for damages stating that the fault was the Company's for not using
the newer "Janney" couplings, 9 April 1897; the demurrer to the amended
complaint to be heard May 3d, 19 April 1897; Southern Pacific to move
for dismissal of damage claim on grounds that Henry W. Ahern is not the
father of the victim, but his brother, and has no right to bring suit,
3 May 1900
