NOTES AND REFERENCES

1. No Irish birth record for Edmond O'Dea is extant, but in December 1852 he declared his intent to become a citizen of the United States before the Worcester County MA Court of Common Pleas, and personally swore to the place and date of his birth. His death is recorded in West Brookfield MA Town Records.

2. Mary O'Dea's birth date is extrapolated from her age at death (Worcester MA Death Records, I, 7, #699). A wooden grave marker in St. John's Cemetery, now long decayed, once recorded her birthplace (Flynn Notebooks, ca. 1890, manuscript, Holy Cross College Library, Worcester MA).

3. San Francisco Deaths, Book I, p. 280, #12915. Michael O'Dea's obituary appeared in the Daily Morning Call, 29 July 1869. Neither source names his parents.

4. Bridget O'Dea's December 1843 baptism is recorded in Annaghdown Parish Records, her 1924 death on San Francisco CA certificate #24-7255.

5. St. Mary's (Boston) Parish Register. Boston City Records (1852, #34) record it as Michael O'Dea's second marriage.

6. Though the birth was not recorded in Massachusetts, Mary O'Dea Burns' death certificate (San Francisco #35-6656) gives her birthplace as Brookfield MA, January 1853. Her obituary appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 13, 1935.

7. There is no record of John A. O'Dea's Massachusetts birth, but he was 8 months old in the household of his parents at the time of the 1855 Barnstable Co. MA census.

8. There is no Irish birth or baptismal record for the younger Edmond O'Dea, but his Declaration of Intention to become a citizen, in Worcester County MA Court of Common Pleas, October 1852, includes his native parish and birth month and year. The record of his death (W. Brookfield MA Town Records, I, 47) includes the names of both his parents.

9. St. John's (Worcester) Marriage Records.

10. San Francisco CA Deaths, Book O; obituary in San Francisco Chronicle, 23 July 1898.

11. Bridget O'Dea's birth date and her parents are recorded in Annaghdown parish records. Her CA death certificate #24-010214, includes an incorrect birth date (1848). The San Francisco Chronicle printed a brief obituary 8 Feb. 1924.
