red mail John Joseph Osborne
Hi I am trying to locate information about the family of John Joseph Osborne who was born in Queenstown in 1865. I understand that his father John (?) Osborne was in the navy and stationed at Queenstown. The only other information I have about John Snr is that he was born around 1825. His wife's name may have been Ellen Mary Hayes. I have been able to gather a lot of information about John Joseph but nothing about his parents or any siblings. Any information or leads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Helen
red mail William Joseph Power
Hi, I'm looking for information about my Grandfather, William Joseph Power. He was commonly known as 'Billy Joe' and was born in 1924. He was one of 6 (2 brothers and 3 sisters) and coincidentally fathered 6 children of the same gender ratio. I believe he served in the merchant navy and died around 1978? Due to his heavy irish accent my Mother (his daughter) and her siblings don't really know much about their father and my grandmother (Helen Grimmitt) and his siblings have all sadly passed away. As the public records offices burnt down during the Irish Civil war, I can't even trace the names of his parents. My mum believes she may have been named after her grandmother, which would make her name Kathleen. If anyone has any further information it would be most helpful if you could pass it on. I plan to travel to Cobh early next year in an attempt to track down remaining relatives and explore the lovely seaside town for myself. Thanks, Natasha
red mail John Whelan
Looking for any information on John Whelan he was a pilot out of Cobh. Married Ellen Mahony, Ellen's mother was Peg Mahony and she had two brothers John and Michael and a sister Mary and May. Ellen and John had three children Katharine (Kitty) Mary (Myra) and Eileen. John died 1929. Cannot find any information of the Whelan side of the family my mother was Mary. Sadly most of the family has passed away and struggling to get a family tree going on this side of the family. Any information gratefully received.
red mail Collins Cobh (Cove of Cork)
Looking for information on the Collins families of Cove (now Cobh), mid 1700s. Am particularly interested in a Captain John Collins, owner and master of the Hannah and Lydia, which took annual voyages to Newfoundland. Captain Collins was associated with Timothy Hurly, ship merchant and chandler, of Cork. Other mariner names associated with Captain Collins were Morgan Rigan, William Greene, Henry Shea, and Captain Barry--and possibly Captain Patrick Collins. Collins' daughter also married John Roche, Jr., in 1781, at Cove.

red mail Murphy-Mulcahy - Cobh, Co Cork ~1840-1920
Looking for descendants of Denis Murphy and Ellen Mulcahy (Ellen's parents: David Mulcahy and Cate Hurley) from Cobh (Queenstown). Denis was born abt 1940 and Ellen Dec 1841. They were married in 1862 in Cobh. They had 7 living children. 2 daughters, Catherine and Mary Ellen Murphy, immigrated to San Francisco, California and married there in the late 1890s. Catherine married Edward Scott and had 3 children and Mary Ellen married Michael J Downey of Waxford and had 8 children. Other children of Denis and Ellen Murphy include James, Patrick, Margaret, Teresa Ann, James Joseph (never married), and Charles Denis (said to have died in So Africa). I would be interested in knowing any living relatives of this family. Catherine is my great-grandmother. Thank you, Lenore
