Subject: O'Hara/Spellman/Walsh

I have been searching all over for any info on my grandparents who both came from Ireland in the early 1900's. My grandfather Martin O'Hara married Agnes Spellman after they arrived in the US (not sure which port) they were both born around 1887-I was led to believe they both came from County Mayo and when my mother was alive, she spoke of Swinsford as the town. They had 12 children, and settled in South Phila and opened a candy store around 2nd street. I would love to hear from anyone with connections. Agnes also had a sister, Margaret who married Patrick Walsh who came here in 1912 on the Caramania Ship and he lived until 105 yrs. old in Collingdale, PA.
