Trying to find Gooch

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I'm trying to find any information about my great grandmother Frances Fanny Gooch. She was married previously and her surname was then O'Hara. Her maiden name was Brown and I think she was born in Weymouth, Dorset. Dont really have much else info about her as she left her 4 children as did their father (Robert Patrick O'Hara) when they were very young. Any info would be much apprciated, so I can let me grandfather know the information that he has never known. Thank you.
