John Whelan Cobh

Journal by Alanah

I am trying to build my family tree on my mothers side of the family. Her father was John Whelan, mother Ellen Mahony. John was a pilot and could possibly have been one of those who took the Titanic out from Cobh 1912. My mother had 2 sisters Katharine (Kitty) and Eileen, my mother was called Mary (Myra). John I believed died in 1931 and shortly after his wife took in a baby boy called Thomas Lane no adoption papers available, probably not legal back then.

Ellen, my grandmother had sisters and brothers and could still have relations in Cobh, I do believe John and Michael Mahony are her nephews, I think their mother was called Peg? who would of been Ellens sister.

If there is anyone out there that can help as my mother has now passed on as have her sisters and she didn't talk a lot about her background when she was alive.

Here's hoping
