My great grandfather was James Anthony Goutenoire Cosgrove, the Waipawa saddler who was married to Maud Christina Nicholson in 1909. They had several children including James Patrick John Cosgrove, who was my grandfather (born in 1918 I believe) and who died on the 20th of Sept 1987. Are you able to tell me where in Ireland the Cosgroves of Waipawa came from and any other information relating to their immigration?
