Indeed Gary, I'd like to see the proof of Honora's parents. When I found the marriage certificate, as I'm not related, I contacted several family members and sent copies, all were offering Michael Collins and Anne Ryan as parents. The only genuine data I have ever found has been from NSW sources, generated from the day she boarded the 'Marquis Cornwallis'
