Looking for proof of James & Jane Eliza Hanright in Rosinallis, Ireland

I'm a descendant of James & Jane Hanright through their son, William A Hanright who was born about 1816 in Ireland. Thomas Rice was William's brother. Donna Hanright who lives in Ontario, Canada is responsible for a lot of the family lineage info. I have been unable to find any info in Rosenallis, Ireland where they are supposed to have come from. I was told by a nephew-in-law of mine, who went to Cork, that there were Hanrights there. I haven't been able to pull up any phone numbers in Ireland for a Hanright on the internet. From what I have seen in the Canadian Census's, Thomas was listed as being born in PEI in one of them. I have seen differing dates for his birth also which makes it hard to determine his actual date of birth. If James & Jane came here before 1920 as Donna thinks, then Thomas would not have been born in Ireland. He appeared in the Westmorland County, New Brunswick census of 1851 where he was married to Albion Chappell and he was 29 yrs. Estimated birth year would be 1822/23. His name was spelled Handwright.

If anyone has any leads regarding the Ireland connection, would love to hear from them. You can contact me at farmrpat@gmail.com

Sadie Coadner Hanright

I'm trying to find information on my g-gf's 3rd wife, Sadie Coadner. They married in Nova Scotia in 1890 and returned to Upstate NY where the children by his 1st wife were living. She was supposed to have come from Newfoundland; her parent's names were George and Anne. I haven't been able to find her there. My g-gf died in 1895; 2 months before his last son was born. I found her in Rome, NY in the 1900 Census where she gave a lot of mis-information ie that she was married to a Robert Hanright (my g-gf's last son's name) and had been married to him since 1892 -- NOT TRUE --g-gf was still alive. Sometime after this she left her 2 boys with neighbors and disappeared. The boys grew up in this area and their 1/2 brothers and they all knew each other.

I recently heard from someone tracing their gf who was adopted in Syracuse and they believe that Sadie was the mother and gave him up. This was 1901/2.

I next found Sadie in the 1910 census and she was living in Auburn, NY and now had a daughter, born 1902/3. Since Ancestry has posted a lot of city directories online from back then, I know she was still in Auburn in 1919 working in the Auburn City Hospital as a cook.

I next found her living with her married daughter in the 1930 Census in Massachusetts. I'm waiting for the 1940 census to come out so I can see if she is still there.

Would appreciate hearing from anyone that connects to Sadie Coadner and her line.
