CHARLES EDWIN O'HARA. There is no better equipped young man in Grant
County for the practice of law and its kindred pursuits than Charles
Edwin O'Hara. He is the eldest son of Dr. R. H. O'Hara and Mrs. Mattie
(Johnson) O'Hara, and was born in Williamstown on the 20th day of
January, 1870. The young attorney to be, attended the common and high
schools at Williamstown and spent a short time in college at Old Centre
at Danville. He studied law in the office of his uncle, Judge Jas.
O'Hara, and was admitted to the bar some four years ago. Mr. O'Hara is
of a literary turn of mind, and is one of the best posted literary
connoisseurs in the county. In law, in history and fiction, he has
read the best written by the ablest authors in all counties. Two years
ago he was united in marriage to Miss Mary McClure, the accomplished
and beautiful daughter of Dr. W. H. McClure. The young folks make
their home with Mr. O'Hara's father. "Ed" as he is oftenest called, in
addition to the practice of his profession, assists his father in his
many business enterprises, and is his deputy Master Commissioner. Mr.
O'Hara is no doubt the handsomest lawyer practicing the profession in
Northern Kentucky, but personally cares little for beauty or dress. He
is an able advocate and has much of the Irish fire and eloquence that
has made other members of his family famous.
