Owen John Hearty is my great grandfather.  Married Rose Ellen Curtis @ Tartaraghan, Armagh, Ireland in 1858 or 1857.  They immigrated to New Monkland, Lanarkshire, Scotland shortly thereafter.. They birthed 5 children in Scotland.  Since he applied for naturalization in Summit County, Akron, Ohio in 1872 I assume they arrived in U.S. in 1867.  Have had no success searching Ireland.  I do have records of 5 births in Scotland.  In 1880 US census he is show as living in Thomastown, Ohio(subsequently Akron, Ohio.He was supervisor in coal mines.  This makes sense since one of his occupations while in Scotland was that of a \\\”drawer\\\” in the coal mines.  He and Rose Ellen had one more child, John Owen Hearty born in 1875.  They were of the Catholic faith.  John was my grandfather; he died in 1960.
