My great-grandmother was Catherine (Kate, Kathleen) Supple, born about 1863-64 in Ireland.By 1881 she was living in Manhattan, by the early 1890’s she was married to Frederick Westerman, and together they had the following children: Margery, Edmond, Francis (Harry) and Julia.
The information I am looking for regards Kate’s parents; family history says that her parents were Edmond Supple and Elizabeth (Mary?) Miller or Millard of County Cork, but Kate’s death certificate says that her parents were John and Catherine Supple. A John and Catherine Supple of Dublin had a daughter, Catherine, born January 15, 1864; my great grandmothers birth date is shown as 15 JAN 1863 in Cork, Ireland on her death certificate.
Kate’s “brother” Edmond’s death certificate shows his parents as Edmond and Mary.There may be a connection to a Supple family in Hoboken, New Jersey; a John and Kate Supple there had a daughter named Marie (Mary), born 1879; she may appear in Ellis Island records as the 19 year old Mamie Supple who was born in Hoboken, traveled from Cork to Manhattan in 1898, and was traveling to see her aunt Mrs Westerman.In 1900 a Mammie Supple appears in the federal census living with Catherine and Frederick Westerman, and is identified as a niece.
I would like to confirm whether Edmond and Mary Supple of County Cork had children named Catherine, Edmond and John.If Catherine’s parents were not Edmond and Mary, then she had some other close relationship with Edmond and John: cousins?
I would also be interested in the Supple’s of Hoboken NJ, and any information about their parentage in Ireland.
