Up O'Mara (2)


   Of interest here is the announcement by Mr. and Mrs. George Henry Farwell of Milton of the marriage of their daughter, Frances, to Jarvis Hugh O'Mara, son of Mrs. Madeleine Hoffman of San Diego, which took place in Paris.  The bride graduated from Brimmer May School and Middlebury College in Vermont.  Mr. O'Mara graduated from the University of California and was associated with the United States Geological Survey in Alaska, Saipan and Tokyo. He served overseas with the 82d Airborne Division, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Mr. O'Mara and his bride plan to live abroad while he is taking a post-graduate course at the University of Zurich, and later at the Ecole des Mines, in Paris.

On 22 July 1950, First Class passengers Jarvis and Frances O'Mara arrived in New York City aboard the S.S. Volendam from Rotterdam, Holland.  Their home address at the time was in Milton, Massachusetts, a Boston suburb.

Aboard Pan American World Airways Flight 841/08 on 6 October 1955, the O'Mara family, including son Duncan, departed Honolulu, HI bound for Sydney, Australia with an intermediate stop in Nadi, on Viti Levu, Fiji's largest island.
