Thomas and Honora Dobbins - County Cork 1800s?
« on: Tuesday 17 September 19 03:03 BST (UK) »
I've recently come across some information regarding my ancestors and after months of searching, I was able to break a brick wall regarding my 3 x great grandfather's parents.

On the death record for their son James their names were Thomas Dobbins and his wife Honroa Coffer. I found an immigration passport for 1846 for Honora coming to the US from County Cork but not much more. This is where I hit another brick wall. I'd guess Honroa would have been born around 1820 and Thomas could be around 1815 but these are educated guesses.

Would there be any insight or details for trying to find out more information about any connections to any additional lineage in the county? I do know records can be hard to come by the further back you go.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you
