1) Comment: These are the obituaries of my great grandfather Daniel O'Hearn, who died on May 19, 1892, at Irish Lake, Glenelg twnshp., age 65, and also of his son, my grandfather John O'Hearn. Unfortunately, Daniel's does not say where he is buried. I am still trying to find out.

2) Comment (update Feb 05 2008): Meta [was] "a nickname that my aunt gave herself when she was a child, because she couldn't pronounce her name Margarite Cecilia."
