ANDREW ALEXANDER O’ROURKE married Florence Ella Stevens, who was born at Albany, Vermont, on May 30, 1856. Andrew and Florence moved with their four small children from Shelbourne Falls, Massachusetts, to New Richmond, Wisconsin, and then to Chippewa Falls, in that state, where he was roadmaster for the Wisconsin Central Railroad.

Florence Ella Stevens O’Rourke died at Shreveport, Louisiana. She was buried at Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Seven children were born of this marriage:

  1. Carlos, born at Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. He died at Virginia City, Minnesota.
  2. LAURA ANN (Laurie), born at Newport, Vermont, on May 1, 1876. She married Henry Patrick Hall on June 5, 1894.
  3. Walter, born at Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.
  4. Maude, born at Shelbourne Falls, Massachusetts.
  5. Rose Lillian, born at Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
  6. Ella Bernice, born at Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.
  7. Isabella, born at Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.

Thus the O’Rourke family merges with the Hall family.
