This evening I was reading about author , Martina Devlin , who has written about an ancestor , Thomas O'Brien , of Bonavie , County Limerick . She discovered that he was one of those who died on the Titanic .  Could this be a connection for you ?
Regards ,
Linden

Hi Maxine,

I think the Catherine NEWS who married Charles O'BRIEN in Lurgan, Co Armagh is the sister of my ancestor, Patrick NEWS. Their parents were Edward NEWS & Mary Ann GRACEY.

As far as I can see Catherine & Charles had the following children who were b in Lurgan.

Charles 1 Jul 1855
Charles 19 Jul 1856
John Charles 10 Sep 1857
Edward 11 May 1859
Mary 30 Aug 1860

Hope this is of interest to you.

Gail

Hi Gail
What a lovely surprise to here from someone.
I dont have all my information with me at the moment but it sounds very much like part of the family, although the dates are slightly different.
I will check tonight  and message you soon.
I know nothing of Catherine's family so this would be wonderful if we can join the families.
Sorry for the delayed reply, but have been unable to rootschat for some time.
Will contact you as soon as I can
Regards Maxine
