  • Hi,

    I attach a copy of a baptism in Monsea on August 21st 1854 of a Dennis Hobbins. Parents: Patt (Patrick) and Mary McKeogh.

    Baptismal Sponsors: Michael Grace and Mary Murray. Entry on right hand page at the bottom. According to transcription in the address is Carrig. Does it have any relevance to you?

  • Hi, I noticed in family search on the 1881 Census that Margaret's mother was with them in Canada.
    I looked for O'Keefe in Griffiths Valuation.
    A Patrick O'Keefe was in Ballycommon, Monsea in 1852.
    That area comes in Nenagh in the Civil records. He passes in 1867.
    Irish Genealogy
    The record of the birth that McCoy sent the townland states Carrig.
    This is the area...........can be Carrig or Carrick.
    Carrick Townland, Co. Tipperary (
    Looking for Hobbins in Tipperary in the townland Carrig or Carrick is this.....
    Griffith's Valuation (
    Looks like Denis born 1855  his father was Patrick and his father is Denis.

  • Hi,  your headline was.......
    Denis Hobbins born abt 1855 Son Of William Gordon Hobbins and Elizabeth Snyder born 1881 and 1882   (have you got the correct dates? (a Son born before his parents.)
    Cannot find a William Gordon Hobbins and no Snyder names anywhere in Ireland.
    The only match I got to Hobbibs and Snyder was this.................
    William Gordon Hobbins, "West Virginia Deaths, 1804-1999" • FamilySearch

    Dear Margot and McCoy,

    Thank you so very much for this help!


    And yes, I think the dates are close but it looks as if I wrote it out wrong.

    I think Gordon is Denis' son.

    If you  can edit the headline for me, I would appreciate it very much.

    Is it possible for you to verify which Patrick is his father  and which

    Denis is the Grandfather?  I'm thinking that's the wall I need to get

    through to go on.


    Looks like Denis born 1855  his father was Patrick and his father is Denis.

    Thank you again with all my heart and blessings.

  • Hi,

    I attach a copy of the 1881 census which records Denis Hobbins, his wife and daughter Mary and son William, including Mary O'Keeffe.

    I do not see any reference o the name "Stewart".

    Best Wishes,
