Re: genealogy O'Rourke/O'Rorke

Thanks for your interest in Mt Savage History and for your purchase of our books.

The O'Rourke's were a prominate family in Mt savage until the early 50's . None that I know live here now but some of the extended family are still in the are.

Please find enclosed 2 photos from 1945.

The photo with all the photos was a display in one of the store fronts on mainstreet. On the back of the photo it says. At center: James & Michael O'Rourke ( Twins) to their right their sister Rose.

The other photo is of Rose Mary Noonan & James Thomes O'Rourke May 17, 1945

I'll put out some feelers to see what can be turned up. However, not many records have survived from the early 1899's.
