red mail Cornelius Collins b. ca. 1869 Bandon
My great grandfather, Cornelius Collins, was possibly born in Bandon ca. 1869 to parents, John Collins and Mary Hallihan. He immigrated to Boston around 1890 (possibly with two family members named, John and Daniel Collins). He married Hannah McCusker in Cambridge, MA in 1897 and remained in the Boston area until his death in 1956. I have had a hard time finding any information linking him to Ireland other than his naturalization papers which list his being born in County Cork. I have his parents names from his marriage record. As census records were destroyed and I am in the US, finding further info has proved near impossible. Trying all I can to see if I can find anyone who might recognize a great grand uncle. Thank you.

red mail Catherine Crowley And Cornelius Crowley
My great great grandmother was Catherine Crowley. She was one of the 4,000 Irish famine orphans sent to Australia between 1848 and 1850. She sailed on the John Knox and arrived in Australia in August 1850. According to the shipping record her father was Cornelius Crowley and her mothers name was Hannah. Catherine was 14 when she arrived in Australia so she would have been born about 1836. Her father was listed as dead and her mother was living in Bandon. I would like to know about her father. Did Catherine have any siblings? Her time in Australia is well documented but I would really like to know about her family in Bandon.
red mail Ellen Mary Crowley
My Grandmother, Ellen Mary Crowley was brought up in Bandon until she was about twelve and then sent to London. We don't know the reason why but she lived with her Grandmother who may of died. They owned an Inn in Bandon called Kilgobban Castle. Her father was called Cornelius Crowley and her mother I believe was called Codagh? My Grandmother settled in Battersea and was out in to service. She later married George Dixon originally from the Cumbria area I believe. They had thirteen children together. My mother was the youngest. I'm really interested in Nanny's life before she came to England and why she left Ireland. She never lost her Irish accent!
