Hi, My g grandmother was Elizabeth ( called Eliza ) Francis. Born Cork city 1844. She had at least two sisters named Emily and catherine. Not sure about any brothers. parents were Thomas Francis and Mary Cahill. There were a few families named Francis living in Cork and they were mainly involved in glovemaking Another family that I looked up was that of William francis and Cathe nagle. Certainly Cork is a good place to start your search and possibly all your answers are there. Tom Ahern.
