Immigration to the US in 1839 sort of precludes any records for Ireland.

Cork City birth records are on www.irishgenealogy.ie so perhaps some death records also?

There is also an Irish History Center on line with records for almost all Ireland (not Cork City) www.rootsireland.ie and Sabina is quite unusual so you maybe able to find her with just her name and year of birth. That is if she is from Ireland.

You could try "Registry of Deeds" Ireland (look for rootsweb)

other resources:

www.censusfinder.com United Kingdom+Ireland+Cork
www.igp-web.com + Cork both have more info that census
parish records, grave stone inscriptions and various other
bits and pieces.

St. Paul's was renovated in 2009, built 1723 and became a parish when St. Mary Shandon was divided.

www.corkrecords.com/St.Pauls
pictures and inscription from gravestones - most are
too old to read

You can try www.familysearch.org for persons who died after 1864, but 1851 would be a Parish record.

PS there are just 6 Lester's in the Cork telephone book, 1 letter 6 copies and stamps are inexpensive. Its worth an
effort and perhaps you will get someone there interested
as you might find there is less interest there an in the US,
Australia and Canada.
