My family tree starts in Tullamore Offaly Ireland. My GGGrandfather was John Cosgrove/Cosgrave who Married Margaret Whelan. They had a daughter Bridget born August 15, 1865, Then a son,My GGrandfather Joseph J born July 02,1866. There were other sibling s but I have been unsuccessful finding accurate records . My GGrandfathet Joseph married Catherine Hennessy. Daughter of Laurence Hennessy & Ellen Grogan. Catherine Hennessy immigrated to the US in 1883 and Joseph in 1886. They were married in Saint Malachy's Catholic Church in North Philadelphia then moved to South Philadelphia to 216 rear Christian Street then to Front St. And finally to #3 League Street sometimes noted as Water Street. They following children; Ellen 1899 , John 1890 (my Granfather) Laurence Died as a small chiled18?? , Joseph 1895 Catherine 1898, Martin 1900, Leo died as a small child 19??. my Grandfather John married Marie/Mary Taylor, Daughter of James Taylor & Mary Dillon on October 20th, 1920 and had the following children; Bernadette dies as an infant, John, William died at age 10, Joseph, Martin (my father), James, Charles, Ronald & Gerald. sin previous posts, my cousins Colleen & Meg stated that two of my Grandfathers brothers was a Policeman , there was one brother - Martin who was a Philadelphia Policeman - But, my grandfathers sister Catherine, married Charles Nagle who was the Charles who was a police officer. So far my family tree is coming together, but I would like to go back as far as I can on both sides - so if Cosgrove, Hennessy Grogan and Whelan sound familure and they are in your lineage I woul love to hear from you!
