This morning’s post brought a thought-provoking response from Kathy S. Could the surname be McAron (McCarron)?
That seems like a very good possibility!
See John Grenham’s website to find the many variants of the name: https://www.johngrenham.com/findasurname.php?surname=mcaron

BTW, Kathy contacted us from Dublin where she’s attending the ‘Back to Our Past’ conference. No wonder she came up with a good guess!
