Henry Coughlan
« on: Tuesday 23 February 21 20:11 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find birth/baptism records for Henry Coughlan who was born in Cork approx 1850.
I am very fortunate to have possession of his family bible. However the bible does not give any information about himself. The recorded details start with his first marriage in 1877.
I have the dates and names of 2 spouses and a total of 8 children.
I also believe that he had 2 sisters, both born approx 1864 and 1866. (The difference of approx 16 years age difference from Henry's birth date might indicate his father married twice).
Henry died in 1921. Records of his marriages, children's births, and his death, show that he lived from 1877 until his death at Old Cork Road, Midleton.
I know from his marriage details that his father was Jeremiah Coughlan. Henry and his father's occupation were 'Coopers'. Presumably at a distillery (?).
I have no documents which would give Henry's mothers name.
I have found no results in Ancestory or FindMyPast. I have searched Nli for Midleton but cannot pin-point him. I am now widening my search at Nli, currently exploring Cork City. I have also searched Irish Genealogy without success. I feel I cannot give up now.
Henry was my Great Grandfather.  Any help in establishing his birth, baptism, or mothers name would be so appreciated. Very little info to start with......wish I could add more.

There is a death here for Jeremiah Coughlan, a Cooper, does this fit?
His wife is Bridget.

Thank you for your help, much appreciated.  I now have some possibilities to go with.  I really don't know how I managed to miss this information previously.  Really good to have "fresh eyes" on the case.  👀👀
