A Look Back on the O'Brien Family

In previous posts on the O'Brien line from my Dad's side of the family I have covered:
- My 3rd-great-grandfather John O'Brien
- My 2nd-great-grandfather John J. O'Brien
- My great-grandfather Harry O'Brien
- John J. O'Brien's wife, my 2nd-great-grandmother, Matilda Jane Lambert
- Harry O'Brien's wife, my great-grandmother, Blanche Lamon

I have upcoming posts on the children of Harry and Blanche O'Brien, my grandmother Blanche Allene O'Brien, and her brothers Harry Jr. and Lowell O'Brien. Below are some pictures provided to me by cousin Mike O'Brien:
Harry Jr & Blanche O'Brien
The photo above of my grandmother and her brother was labeled "DC on a Shriners Night." Harry Sr. often traveled the country playing clarinet in bands. The photo is undated, probably early 1920s.
