David O'MEARA and Mary McEVOY
Ireland to Gloucester Township

I believe this family lived at Bowesville (now Ottawa International Airport)
The McEvoys had a store there. David O'Meara is on the 1879 map.

Hello Mr. Lewis, I have found my David's parents. They were Philip O'Meara and Julia SLATTERY. Both from Ireland. It doesn't look like this is your David. All the best Cindy.

Hi Al Tried to send an e-mail from your O'Meara sight "Cindy & Al Lewis" but it was returned, so you might want to check that. (Checked it - I don't have a current e-mail address for Cindy ... Al) I am looking for a Joseph P. O'Meara, married to Mary Anne "Annie" O'Dea (1864-1947). The "P" I think, stands for Philip after his grandfather. Joseph P. was a Constable with the City of Ottawa Police in 1896 (sometime later Chief of Police, Renfrew. Also owned a grocery store in Sandy Hill). His grandparents were Philip O'Meara (died in Ireland 1839) and Judy Slattery (1785-1896 (111 years of age). I have a copy of her death notice 9 Oct. 1896 mentioning him (Joseph) as her grandson and also a picture of her. Judy emmigrated in the 1840's with four of her sons (possibly Thomas, William, Philip John (?), David). There was a daughter Bridget, married to Michael Ryan and they emmigrated later and settled in the Meech Lake area until his death. Judy Slattery-O'Meara took up residence in Nepean and worked for a Mr. David Hartin. Joseph's wife, Mary Anne "Annie" is buried in Notre Dame Cemetery in Ottawa, but no sign of Joseph P., yet he had purchased the plot in 1907. Could this be the same Philip O'Meara and "Julia" Slattery you mention in your O'Meara site?? My connection: Joseph P. O'Meara, ggrandfather. Margaret Ellen O'Meara-Smith, paternal grandmother Ivor Smith, father Marilyn Smith-Dwyer, ... Marilyn Dwyer
August 10, 2001: Hi Al, Do you happen to know of a Dennis O'Meara of Bytown who was married to Catherine Ryan? A son Patrick Meara married 25 Dec 1853 Catherine Gleason also of Bytown. Her parents were John Gleason and Mary. Witnesses were Patrick Kelly and James McGuire. This was of Notre Dame Parish. Thanks. Mary
September 20, 2005: Hello Marilyn: Saw your message on Bytown or Bust site. Seems that your O'Meara's are also my O'Meara's. Joseph O'Meara married to Annie O'Dea were my g-g-grandparents. Mrs. Philip O'Meara (died 1896) was my ggg-grandmother. My grandmother was Veronica (Bonnie) O'Meara. Her father Joseph was indeed a Police constable in Ottawa 1896. I don't have a lot of information, but would like to compare notes with you if you are willing. Please e-mail me at lorenadoxtater@rogers.com Thank You! ... Lorena
