O'GORMAN Family HistoryThis interesting surname has two distinct possible origins one English, the other Irish.

My mum was adopted after her birth in London 1956. We have recently discovered that my biological grandfather was John O'Gorman who emigrated to North America in 1955. My biological grandmother passed before we could learn more.
We are reaching out incase anyone may know any information. The last known location for John is an address in New York in 1956.
We know John may have hanged the spelling of his surname over time. Or has passed away.
