I am the great grandaughter of the famous John O'Keefe of Lynemouth, the 2nd eldest son of the famous fighting O'Keefe's, all 6 of them! I would love to find out more about papa O'Keefe, Pat, Eddie, Sexton, Tommy, Mattie and of course my great grandad John and would love to hear from anyone with any information or even any distant relatives? I am hoping to gather a lot of research on them all and look at putting something together about them.
Your great grandad John was the brother of my great grandfather Nicholas. There were three other children Patrick, Edward and Helena. I am in touch with the relatives of all the men. Pat Gordon who lives in Newcastle is a direct descendent of John. It would be good to get you in touch with Pat but do not know how I can do this.
