Trying to find Colbert

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Pauline Report 4 Jun 2003 22:19

I am trying to trace any decendants of my Great Great Grandfather Michael Colbert of Tramore. He originally came from France to Waterford or Dungarvan and was a tailor. He may nhave married a lady with the surname of Keoghan. In 1850 he was appointed foreman on the works on the Waterford to Tramore railway and became the first Head Porter. He was succeded in the job by his son called Michael who married a lady called Bridget Foley (Her name may have been Alice). He may have worked in the copper mines near Bunmahon, before following his father on to the railway. He had six sons and one daughter Nora. His sons were James (MY Grandfather), Eddie, Paddy, Micheal Christy. Paddy, Christy and Nora later emigrated to America (Boston). I would also like to trace my aunt Bridget Colbert who may have family in London. I think she married a policeman. Also my uncle James (Jimmy) Colbert his wifes name was Marion and they had no children that we know of. He may have lived in the Leicester area. Also any information regarding family my Grandfather's (James Colbert) brothers and sister.
