Re: Coby's to NYC in the late 1840s early 1850's
As far as I can tell so far, My Coby line supposedly came from County Cavan(??) in Ireland....The ship manifest for the Catherine Coby I believe is my great grand mother is listed as having her arrive in NY on December 5, 1850 on the ship Tempest. She was 8 years old and she was traveling with her brother P(???).She left from Liverpool and the place of origin was listed as Great Britain. I believe that her father was a Peter Coby(age 45) who arrived in America in 1847 with his son Louis(age 11). Two other Cobys, Patrick(age 14) and Matthew(age 16) arrived in America in 1849 and I believe these two are also related - same names on Baptismal certificates for Catherine Coby's (after she married William Doyle) children. I have another Catherine Coby who also arrived in America in 1850 being born in 1834 who I believe is also related but can't connect up yet.
