Cobh

Journal by Alanah

Researching my grandparents John Whelan and Ellen Mahony both from Cobh. Married in St Colemans Church 26th April 1917, witnesses Kathleen O'Sullivan and Michael Oakley. John was a pilot and could possibly of been one of those who took the Titanic out from Cobh in 1912. I also believe Johns father (my great grandfather) was also called John and also a pilot, there is a possiblity that he was married to a Catherine Condon? and they had 7 children 6 girls and 1 boy being my grandfather John. Ellen (Mahony) my grandmother did have brothers and sisters I think called Peg and Mary? her father was also called John. My grandparents lived at number 4 East Hill Cobh and had three daughters Katharine (Kitty) Mary (Moira my mother) and Eileen. When my grandfather died which would of been between 1929 and 1931 my grandmother took a baby boy in from the local nuns called Thomas Lane, no formal adoption was ever taken up. If anyone has any more info on any of the above I would love to hear from you.
