The elusive Sarah McCormick

Posted: 9 May 2013 4:15PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: McCormick, Coburn
Trying to find more information about my great great grandmother. What I know for sure is that her son Caleb, my great grandfather, was born on 8/4/1988 in Portadown Ireland. The residence is Ballyhannon. No father was recorded - I was told that it was known but not recorded. The mother, Sarah McCormick, was a teenager when she gave birth. Sometime in the next few years she left for America without her son, who would later come to America in search of her when he was around 12 years old. According to him, he found her in Boston around 1902 but her husband would have none of him and sent him on his way.

My grandfather was mostly raised by his grandparents in Ireland. We think there names are John McCormick and Deborah Coburn, but only because we found a birth record of a Sarah McCormick in the area that matches up.

It's quite a mystery - not only who the mysterious father was but also what became of Sarah McCormick in America. If anybody has any information (even far fetched info), I'd love to hear it.
