Trying to research the paternal line of Edward "Bugsy" O'Hare back to Ireland. The airport in Chicago is named for him as he died a famous fighter pilot during WWII. His father, Edward Joseph O'Hare, was also an interesting character, he had been a solicitor and worked for Al Capone. He also died a violent death, murdered in 1939.
Edward Joseph O'Hare was born on September 5, 1893 in St. Louis to Patrick Joseph O'Hare and Cecelia Ellen Malloy O'Hare.
I have tried to find a birth record for Patrick Joseph but have failed thus far. His death Cert https://www.sos.mo.gov/images/archiv...2_00020734.PDF
states that his birthplace was Illinois and that his father was born in Ireland but his name is unknown.
Any help would be appreciated!
