red mail COLLINS, John, born 1835-45
John Collins was a Mason's Labourer, born in County Cork. He was the father of John Francis Collins (a bookbinder), who was born 1868 in Skibbereen (though his birth record isn't there). John Francis married Frances Elizabeth Usher in Clerkenwell, London in 1890. I'm looking for John's spouse and his parents who could be James Collins and Catherine Barry - confirmation sorely needed. Any information, whether to confirm or deny, will be gratefully received.

red mail Johnson / Croston in 'Lick' Skibereen area
I am trying to find information on births, marriage, parents names or anything about my great great grandparents Samuel Johnson b.abt 1810 and his wife Mary Ann Croston b. abt 1816 (in Cork according to England census') they left Cork around 1849 - 50 and went to Newport Monmouthsire in Wales. They had 4 children with them all born in county Cork and on later English census' are recorded as born in 'Lick' Cork.They were: Martha b.abt 1840/ Ann abt.1842 / Eliza abt.1844 and John abt.1849. Family word of mouth had always been that Samuel Johnson came from Scotland and so was a surprise to find this Irish connection instead, does anyone know anything about people from Scotland migrating to this part of Ireland, I have not been able to find anything in regard to Cork. Many thanks for any help on this Kind regards.

red mail Brien family
I am looking for details of the Brien family of Skibbereen, especially my Great Grandmother Margaret Brien b 1868 , she married Daniel Finn of Drimoleague
Any information on Patrick Barry - wife Ellen (Regan) lived in Warners Lane Skibbereen in 1911 Census with daughter Katie age 25yrs. Patrick was retired from the Coastguard Service and did a lot of his service in Co Kerry. He also served in Crimean War with Royal Navy aboard HMS Caeser.
red mail Skibbereen and assolus
I am searching for County Cork Leahys; James Leahy married Mary Barnett, date unknown and immigrarted to New York (Lyons), date unknown They eventually settled in Sterling Illinois and appear on the 1860 Lyon N.Y census and the 1870 & 1880 census in Sterling Il. James possibly born in 1810 and Mary in 1820. Mary's tombstone states she was born in Schull, but family lore says their son Dennis leahy was born in Assolus (1847-1849)My father William Leahy visited Skibbereen about 18 yrs ago but no information as to the Leahy relatives he visited is in my possession. I only was told that he met with relatives in Skibbereen.
red mail O'Reilly or McCarthy
Difficult but my great great grandmother, Johanna left Ireland as one or the other. I cannot find her in the 1841 England census but she is living or married to my Gt grandfather Daniel in Thornbury by 1851. All I know is she is likely to have been born around 1816-1820. If she's in England it's probably in the Bristol area or Wales, probably the Monmouth or Abergavenny area. My hunch is she was born an O'Reilly but then married a McCarthy, largely gleaned by the process of elimination and her subsequent children's birth certificates but any clues gratefully received.
red mail Nolan/Moriarty
Would greatly appreciate any information on SAMUEL NOLAN married to ELIZABETH(BESSIE) MORIARTY.believed to be from Cork ,possibly Skibbereen .I have no dates other than they had a son Harold born Aug. 24. 1888 and a daughter Dorothy.
red mail Denis Collins + Ellen Hurley, Colomane East
Trying to find the birth origins of Ellen Hurley, married to Denis Collins 5-Jun-1904. Colomane East, their residence, was technically within the Skibbereen registration district but really considered a part of Bantry. Ellen died probably in 1912. Ellen's father was John Hurley. She was probably born around 1875. As there are easily a dozen Ellens born to John Hurleys in the Skibbereen, Skull, Bantry, and Dunmanway districts during the 1870's I could use a little help. Ellen and Denis were my greatgrandparents. An uncle has told me that Grandmom (their daughter) had a cousin with the last name of Sullivan. I am aware of potential parents John Hurley and Catherine Sullivan who lived in Lisheen (near Glengarriff) and possibly married in Dunmanway district in 1874. Any information on Catherine Sullivan (parents, siblings and THEIR spouses and children) would be appreciated. My mitochondrial DNA is unusual for western Europe. So the more information I can get to correctly identify the right Ellen Hurley, the better.
