The O'Learys of Sherman County, Oregon (Patrick Mears, -Germany, 04/05/21 3:00 am)

Just a short note to report some welcome fallout from the Daniel Florence O'Leary WAIS post (March 30th:  https://waisworld.org/go.jsp?id=02a&l=en&objectType=post&o=140041&objectTypeId=102786&topicId=123 )  

When I was in the thick of my research regarding my O'Leary family's migrations to and adventures in the American Wild West, I became connected with a historian on the staff of the Sherman County Historical Museum in Moro, Sherman County, Oregon, which is one of the Oregon counties that a number of my O'Leary ancestors settled in, beginning in the late 1870s and early 1880s.

The historian's name is Sherry Kaseberg and she wrote me, asking if I would write something about my O'Leary family members in Sherman County, which is a little less dramatic than Daniel's martial and diplomatic adventures in Gran Colombia and Venezuela. I gladly said that I would and now I am beginning another research and writing adventure. I would love just to hop in a plane right now and land in Portland, Oregon, in order to visit all of these places in Oregon and Montana where members of this family settled and thrived.

Thanks for your help in getting the piece published. I think that I missed my true calling.

JE comments:  Pat, honoring one's ancestors is a noble thing, and your sleuthing skills are unparalleled.  You've done the O'Learys proud!  The O'Leary diaspora covers three continents.  Please keep us updated with any new discoveries.

I have to ask the obvious:  is there any chance some of your forebears ended up in Chicago and kept a cow with a penchant for pyromania...?
