Thank you Christine. I didnt know about Ellen. Thomas was Dennis´s son by his 2nd wife Julia I think. Also Cornelius I am not sure if Julia was his mother or was it Dennis´s 1st wife? You said ¨"lots more in the area " did you mean Driscolls?. Hope to heare from you again are our trees connected?. Frances.

Hi there
I am also chasing my Driscoll's from Cork. I have traced my John (b 1832ish) and his wife Catherine Neill (1835) to the Castlehaven and Myross Parish, area of Rineen, church Union Hall St Bridgets.
They had a son Thomas (1855), Mary, James, Catherine, Ellen, Johanna in Ireland and then Bridget, Anne, Laura and Margaret (1872) in St Olaves, Rotherhithe, London.
So count me in on the keeping in touch thing. There definitely are LOTS of Driscoll's in Cork, particularly West Cork around the Skibbereen, Baltimore, Clonakilty area etc. so a little like chasing needles in haystacks - however sometimes you just get lucky!
cheers Kerry Driscoll :-)

Hi Driscoll

Did you notice this was posted almost 5 years ago? Frances may not be checking for replies now

It maybe better to send her a private message, she may still have the same email address
