Re: Coby's to NYC in the late 1840s early 1850's
I find it interesting that you had Coby ancestors who went to America without their parents. I have a Margaret Coby who came to Australia pre 1856. She apparently came out alone and married aged 19. Marriage cert says she had parental permission to marry. It also says she was from Kilmore, Co. Cavan and born abt. 1837. Her death cert cites what appears to be Droakadan??? Co. Caven as her birthplace. Her father was Peter Coby and mother Bridget Brydie or Brady.
Does any of this sound familiar?
