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.
