John O'Neill would seem to be an unlikely candidate to be spearheading a political movement. Surely, at the age of 76, with a face as kindly as it is craggy and a couple of recent operations behind him, he must be too old and weak. Certainly, with his tweed sport coat, soft voice and mild manner, he is too genteel.But as he stands before a meeting of the Northern Baltimore County Republican & Civic Organization on a recent winter weekday evening, the president of the fledgling anti-tax-increase Maryland Taxpayers Association appears neither frail nor faint-hearted.

On this morning 200 years ago, a plucky Irish immigrant, John O'Neill, matched wits with British Adm. Sir George Cockburn, a veteran sea dog in command of a fleet of 19 vessels that sailed into Havre de Grace during the War of 1812. O'Neill was born in Ireland in 1768 and immigrated to America in 1786. After serving under Gen. Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee, helping to put an end to the Whiskey Rebellion in western Pennsylvania in 1794, he settled in Havre de Grace, then a small Upper Chesapeake Bay village with about 60 wooden houses.

For the last 70 years, the John O'Neill House has been a tavern, a house of prostitution, a restaurant, a rowdy nightclub, and is now a dilapidated, vacant eyesore.It wasn't always like that. For nearly 100 years before 1920, it was the home of the Concord Point Lighthouse keeper.When the city of Havre de Grace gained possession of the property in the mid-1980s, an effort began to restore the old house to its original state and turn it into a museum. A group to oversee the house's restoration, the Friends of the Concord Point Lighthouse Inc., has procured a series of grants for the O'Neill House, the latest of which was $20,000 from the Maryland Historical Trust awarded this month.

John H. O'Neill, a gregarious auctioneer and farmer who served as the first president of the Harford County Council, died of cancer Wednesday at his Forest Hill home. He was 82. The lifelong Harford resident, whose family has lived there since before the Revolutionary War, spent a dozen years in local government during the 1960s and 1970s - a time when the county was changing from a rural bastion to a fast-growing suburban jurisdiction. He was the Republican nominee for county executive in 1974, losing by fewer than 3,000 votes to incumbent Democrat Charles B. Anderson.
