There was a directory (compiled by Hutchinson) for Grandy's Point for 1864-65. This directory tells of a Thomas Connor who was a " planter" and a Timothy Connor who was also listed as a" planter". Probably these were two brothers. There is the probability that Timothy was the grandfather of Timothy Joseph . His occupation is listed as "planter" and not " fisherman" ; this is probably Anthony F O'Connor's great grandfather.
Lovell's 1871 Directory lists a Timothy Connors as a" fisherman". This would be the father of Timothy Joseph Connors and the paternal grandfather of Anthony. F. O'Connor.This is the man Anthony went to live with after the death of his mother. His grandmother was Agnes Bollard and she died a few years later when Anthony was about 9. If his grandfather was a fisherman it would explain why he could no longer care for Anthony and why he would ask the priest [Rev A. Fyme] to take him. It appears that A. F. O'Connor's grandfather was born in Newfoundland and it was A. F. O'Connor's great grandfather who came form Ireland.

Timothy of Tim
His DOD is unknown but he was baptised in Argentia, NFLD on 15 July 1836 per parish records in Argentia and this information passed to me Jan 2002 via e-mail from Jim Rogers, his great grandson.
Newfoundland Vital Records - deaths for 1920-1922 list a Timothy Connors born Grandys Point who died 12 Feb 1919 at age 82 [born c1836/37] of "old age" and buried at St. Kyran's Cemetery. This does fit his profile.I will assign this date unless documentation proves otherwise.
Timothy married Agness Ballard, daughter of Ballard and Unknown, in St Kyran's, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland. (Agness Ballard was born about 1845 in Poss Bollardstown, Sound Island, Newfoundland and died circa 1913 in Clattice Harbor, Placentia Bay, Newfoundland.)
