I am not a blood relationship to Officer O'Connor, but my son Alex Ander is his 2Great Grandson and I am doing research for his family tree. I was so glad to find this in a Google search and appreciate the memorial provided.

There is also a story that Lawrence Officer Daly talks about this very memorial in The Valley Patriot that may help provide a picture and some information.
