I looking for some information on the Whelan Family, I think they came from tipperary, They move to liverpool some time in the 1800's.
All I know of them is
Both born Ireland Mother: Cathrine Whelan Father: Micheal Wheland ( Not sure on that though.)
Micheal Whelan and Patrick Whelan both of thes where born in Liverpool...
Patrick later went to live in OZ, I'm told he jumped ship there in 1910/11/12. On the way back to liverpool the ship he was meant to be on was lost at sea.. so everyone thought he went down with the ship. (But he didn't)
I was wondering if this story rang any bells with anyone out there..
