Broken bones but nothing more serious and some bruising as well.
Not even concussion and the person who hit him not seriously injured either.

They were both lucky. Their cars broke on impact which dissipates the energy of the crash.

You can buy a new car with your insurance money but broken bodies are not replaceable.

We will get the euro 4 cert for John and Ellen.

I will come back when we find out their parents. Wish it was like Scotland where you buy it instantly and online on Scotland's People. In 10 minutes you know who they were and can just keep going.

Hello, Lyndo and all,
I know this is years later.  I found your posts here in searching for McCarthys from Cork to Wales.  I am intrigued by your Ellen McCarthy and wonder of your Collinses went to Wales because of a connection to McCarthys there.

All I know is that my ggf Denis McCarthy was born in 1859 in Glamorgan, Wales and came to USA, Pittsburgh, PA, about 1868/70.  Here he married Mary Donlan and they had James Anthony, Francis Carroll (my gf) and Eileen.  Denis's parents MAY have been Daniel and Norah Mahoney but the tree showing this has no documentation for it.

You say in subsequent posts that you have started a tree on ancestry, but searching Ellen McCarthy Collins in Trees does not bring it up. 

It's a longshot, I know, but if you have any insight, I'd so appreciate it!  Just confirmed this year that Francis is my gf.  He died in 1949 and had his family far away so I have no connection and no info.

Thanks very much!
Meg

Hi Lindo.  I am in Abertawe, Cymru (Swansea, Wales).  My surname is Collins and my family came here to Abertawe circa1848, from Bandon, West Cork.  Don't know if there is any connection?

yippee.
Dennis Collins would interest me.   My gg grandfather was  a Dennis Collins, from Bandon, West Cork.  Relatively close to Dunmanway.  Merthyr is also about 30 miles from Abertawe (Swansea)

Hi

Apologies for finding this thread 5 years after it started.

The Denis Morris Collins born in Merthyhr Tydfil 1888 is my Great Grandfather.

He lived in Merthyr and went to Dunmanway to stay with family before marrying Susan Dillon in Glasgow 1909

His father was Daniel Collins and mother Elizabeth Whelan (or Whalan). Elizabeth was born in Wales and Daniel, we believe in Dunmanway.

Would love to know where the track of the record in this thread lead to as it is certainly crossing across where I am looking... particularly the relationship between Dennis Morris and John as I have been working on assumption (with family and records) that the prison record in 1905 for Dennis Morris is my G Grandfather and therefore exploring that John Collins the Shoemaker in West Green was his Uncle.
