Need info on Joseph O'Hara, b.1844 Ireland?, d.1911 Massie Ont.


I am trying to find info on my Great Grandfather Joseph O'Hara. He was born somewhere in Ireland possibly the northern coast about 1844. He moved to Canada at the age of 19 after finishing an apprenticeship as a shoemaker. He possibly came to Canada with the man who trained him, a Mr Miller. He had several children with his wife Mary Rebecca Burchill-O'Hara. All the children died but one (my Grandfather James O'Hara).

Does anyone have any suggestions how I could find out where my Great Grandfather was from exactly and who were his parents?

Many Thanks,

Shannon O'Hara
