[sent November 7th]

Today is November 7th. According to his WWI draft registration, John J.
Ahearn of the Bronx, New York City was born on this date in 1895. Another
John J. Ahearn from the Bronx is listed in the index of Aherns in the
World War II Memorial Registry. Yet another John J. Ahearn is buried in
the Calverton National Cemetery, Calverton, New York. This John Ahearn was
born on July 5, 1892 and served as a Private 1st Class in the Army. And
another John J. Ahearn, who was born on August 24, 1893 and served as an
Army Private in WWI is buried in Long Island National Cemetery. See for other Aherns
who should be remembered on Veterans Day, November 11th.

I'd like to mention my friend, Norman Mongan's latest book, "A Century Of
Silence" which has now been published in the U.S. As a boy in Ireland he
used to wonder why his grandfather avoided talking about his siblings who
had emigrated to America. In 1979 he came across a photo hidden inside a
family album on the back of which was written "Mary Mongan, Boston, USA".
It was this photo that led him on a 30-year quest to find the story of his
American cousins. This book tells the tale, including some Ahernes in
Massachusetts. See

The Ahern obituary page has now passed the 4,250 mark. The most recent new

2010. A chartered accountant, he was the driving force behind the Boyle
Arts Festival. The earliest new obituary is for Australian Police
Constable, John Ahern of Brisbane, Queensland, 18 September 1893.
