CONNOR Family HistoryThe O?Connors hold pedigrees going back to the 2nd century. Conchobhair, meaning ?hero? or ?champion? was the 10th century King of Connacht from whom they took their name. There were, however, at least six O Conor septs, not necessarily in the same line as Conchobhair. Among these were O Conor of Corcomroe in Clare, O Connor Faly of Offaly, O Connor Kennaght of Ulster. Corcomroe (Clare), Connacht, Faly of Offaly, Kenaght of Ulster

Below you will see the picture of Pyers O'Conor Nash presenting a piece of oak from the Clonalis property in Roscommon to our 'Tainste', Lindsay Ni'Conchobhair. The oak tree will be turned into a ceremonial 'staff of office' for our united O'Connor/Connor tribe.
Thanks to Pyers and the manor house property at Clonalis House? ?. Buiochas!
In the United States, Patrick worked as the head waiter at the Hotel Woodstock? in Manhattan for 40 years. The hotel is in the theater district, and many famous people lived and dined there, such as Lillian Russell, Diamond Jim Brady and Victor Herbert.
In the early 1900s, Patrick moved his family from Manhattan to Morristown, N.J., settling in a neighborhood known to this day as Little Dublin. He came to this area because his wife had relatives who worked as servants and maids in the estates of the millionaires who then populated the Morristown area. He and Bridget raised four chldren: Joseph (my father) (1910-1973), Eleanor (1902-1995), May (1907-?) and Anne (1915-1991).?
Patrick retired in 1946 and died in 1963.
The attached photo of the proud father with his wife and children, taken in 1918, is bittersweet. Within two years, Bridget would be dead, a victim of the Spanish Influenza epidemic. He never remarried.
I remember Patrick as a quiet, dignified man. He would come to dinner in a three-piece suit, complete with a pocket watch in his vest pocket, and the high-top button shoes that were popular in the late 19th century. I was only 10 when he died, and I deeply regret that I never asked him about his life and our family's history.
