O'CONNOR FAMILY and TOOHEY FAMILY
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 00:25 GMT (UK) »
I've taken over old research done some 30 years ago on Catherine/Kate/Katie O'Connor born 12 May,1868 Glenaster Ardagh Co.Limerick. Research obviously done to get this date years ago and lost!
She arrived in Australia with sister Bridget in 1886. Those records sighted.
I now have reason to believe that other family members e.g. Patrick, Mary and a J.... may be her siblings and I am now digging in our records in Australia for them.   I couldn't put Glenaster Ardagh on a map can you help with  this?   Patrick and Bridget her parents.
Cornelius TOOOHEY husband of Catherine (married in Australia) born 3 February 1861 (from old research also) states Ennis Co Clare as his birthplace. Should I post on Co.Clare forum for more info on this family??

For now, better to just have this thread to avoid duplication of data.

Many thanks folks, something to work hard on! Appreciate your time . I've become "vision impaired" so it takes a little while longer to absorb all the info. But I will.
