      First, thank you for your service to our country! I’ve heard speculation from other family historians that all O’Rears and Orears in America can trace their lineage back to a common ancestor, John ORea. So, it is likely that we are at least distant cousins!

    HI Paul. I’m the father of the other Paul O’Rear (!)

    Here’s some very interesting information. Quite a while back, I was on a plane going to Toronto. I seat mate asked me my name, And I told him. To my amazement he said “oh, you’re French. I said in amazement, what, why did you said that?

    “I live in Alsance-Lorraine, and some of my best friends are named O’Rear !!!!” A lot of them live there. And I determined that they had moved there, way badk in the Potato Famine, Or, during Cromwells reign. So we now have an explnation for the myths? that we were either Irish or Frendh.

    Isn’t that cool?
