My great grandfather was Cornelius O'KANE from Antrim Ireland. He was born in 1842. I am trying to get information about his parents or siblings to continue tracing back our family tree.
So far I have that he travelled to the US in the late 1860s.
I know he married Margaret McCONNELL born in Ireland 1855.
(I have a theory that they met in the US and moved to England)
I know they had 9-11 children (i think 2 died very young) Margaret born - 1874 Elizabeth -1876 Daniel -1881 John -1882 Catherine(Kate?) -1885 Cornelius - 1886 Rose -1889 James Patrick -1891 Charles Oswin -1893
all born in Wallsend parish, England
My mother told me that her Great Aunt Lizzie lived to be about 105. Possibly your Elizabeth O'Kane? Did she live till about 1981?
P.S. My mother is Gertrude O'Kane McGrath from previous post.
