I also descend from Hobans from Castlebar, ireland. My gggrandfather John Hoban left Castlebar in 1848 was a stone cutter and arrived in Rochester New York. His son Dennis my ggrandfather came to USA in 1858 and served in Civil War Navy and settled in Wilkes- Barre Pa. working as an Anthracite miner.Dennis had many brothers but only know the name of his only sister Mary who married a Patrick Jordan from Fall River Mass.
