Ellen Nicholson/nicholls
« on: Saturday 13 November 21 22:57 GMT (UK) »
I have since had a lead from an ancestry DNA match whose Nicholsons came from Adrigole Cork and I'm Wondering if anyone can help, I have hit a brick wall with Mary Nicholson born about 1859 co cork and her sister Ellen ,all I know is their fathers name was James Nicholson a farmer from Co Cork, he was listed as deceased in 1880 on the marriage cert of Ellen Nickleson  (that's how it was spelt on marriage cert)  of Gratton st and  James Kelleher of wises lane in 1880 I know they had 6 children, Mary Nicholson of leitrum st married  Mchael Hannan a private in the royal artillery in 1882 with only one child I know of a girl born in 1884 called Mary Ellen I can't seem to find anything on their father James or mothers name and have searched relentlessly any help would be greatly appreciated .

Religion? if Catholic then many R.C. parish registers online (free)-
https://registers.nli.ie/
Some Cork records also here-
https://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/

Deaths 1864 onward here (search 1864-1880 to see if you can find father James although certifictes for the earlier years are not yet online)-

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Hi All

If you notice on my previous posts I didnt have a birth place for this Nicholson/Nicholls family, thought as I had a lead from an ancestry match who has Nicholson ancestors from Adrigole  that I would post as I have looked and cant find Adrigole on irishgeneoligy.ie.
It was never my intention to waste anyone's time , the previous "identical " post didnt have a possible birthplace, so I thought I would post again for help , my intention  was to get help to find ancestors I have been trying to trace for years now, not to waste members time .

Apologies as the previous "almost identical post " didnt have a possible birthplace as all I have known about these ancestors is that they were from Co Cork , having found a dna match who has Nicholsons from Adrigole in Cork I looked and couldnt find Adrihole so thought I would post on here for help and copied in as much info as I could ...it wasnt a case if me just posting a duplicate thread as I now have a possible birthplace .
Wish I'd seen that thread earlier  ::)
