My husband's great-grandparents Patrick & Lucy Cosby Corcoran of Clonaheen Laois left Ireland 1869 with their son Patrick b. 06 Apr 1868. They arrived in NY and eventually settled in Yonkers, NY. I am trying to find Patrick and Lucy's birth & marriage records and any siblings. At the birth of Patrick jr. Elizabeth Cosby was present. It may have been her mother, sister or sister-in-law. One of their sons was named Fenton [unusual name] and I found a Fenton Cosby born to Thomas & Mary Cosby in Laois.
I am reading the microfilm of the catholic parish records of Mountmellick 1814-1860 but cannot recognise any other family members.
Has anyone heard of the Corcoran or Cosby families?
Would appreciate any information.
