Timon and O'Hara

Biographic Information On Drowning Victims Timon and O'Hara

San Patricio de Hibernia indicate that several young people born in Ireland and immigrating to Texas to the San Patricio Colony were nieces and nephews of Empressario James McGloin, children of his sister Cecilia McGloin and her husband, Patrick Timon. They are John 1825, who married Ellen Keating, Andrew born about 1824, Elizabeth born in 1825, and Patrick born in 1832. Andrew married Ann O'Hara; his sister Elizabeth married Ann's brother, Michael O'Hara.

A check of the 1850 census of San Patricio indicates that Andrew was then 26 years old, born in Ireland living with his wife Ann. His real estate was valued at $300. Next door lived Michael O'Hara, age 30 living with his wife, Elizabeth Timon O'Hara and their baby daughter Cecilia age 1 year, born in Texas. Living with them was Elizabeth's brother Patrick age 18, born in Ireland. At the time of their deaths Andrew was about 30 and Michael about 34. Rachel Hebert's notes indicate that Elizabeth Timon O'Hara later married Dave Odem and then a man named Goodwin.
