Biography of William J. O'Hearn
Bristol County, MA Biographies

O'Hearn, William J., son of John and Jane (Dooley) O'Hearn, was born in Fall River, October 3, 1872. He attended the public schools of Fall River, worked in the mills a short time and then went to work as a cash boy for E. S. Brown. He afterwards became a clerk and remained in that capacity for twelve years, when he established himself in the tailoring business, forming a copartnership with John J. Howard, as O'Hearn & Howard. The partnership was dissolved in 1896 and Mr. O'Hearn has since successfully conducted the business. He is a young man of excellent promise and enjoys the confidence of all with whom he comes in contact. He has exhibited much versatility along dramatic lines, and at one time, after giving an amateur production of "Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hyde," to one of the largest audiences ever gathered in the Academy of Music, received offers from an ex manager of Richard Mansfield to enter upon a stage career. He is greatly interested in the study of work along the line of Scanlon and Olcott, and has received much kindly mention from the local press for work in this direction. Mr. O'Hearn married Mary E., daughter of James and Mary Blake of Fall River, and they have one daughter, Gladys Marion.
