Stefan:
Your gr grandfather may have been in the Orphanage prior to 1910; you stated that his Mother's name was Elizabeth Oconnell, and in 1910, William is living with Richard Oconnell as a nephew; I think it's very plain that he lived with his Uncle in 1910. In 1900, William was with his Father Michael, and his siblings. He would have been about 9 or 10 yrs old when the parents died, if they died abt 1902 as you stated....perhaps he was placed in the Orphanage you mentioned until he became age 17..and the Uncle took him in. I'm certain it's he, because of the relationship to the Oconnell...
