Researching the line of John Tobin from Kilworth, County Cork. Son David R. emigrated to Ellis Island 27 July 1911 on the SS Adriatic. David married Theresa Mahoney and produced: David R., Jr., Francis S., Margaret M., and Roland by 1930 census. Records suggest David traveled with Michael Flynn from Eire - relationship unknown. Any and all leads/input greatly appreciated!

I had the right David R. TOBIN, but the wrong father and immigration dates....

David R. Tobin is the son of Stephen TOBIN b. 1834 likely County Cork, Ireland and Hannah ?? b. 1848, likely County Cork, Ireland. Siblings were: Catherine S. b. 1875, Ireland, Ellen b 1878 Ireland, Stephen Jr. b. 1882, maybe a Patrick b. 1884, Ireland, Elizabeth b. 1886, Ireland and Thomas (who may be Patrick Thomas) b. 1891, Ireland.

The family slowly immigrated between 1887 and 1905 to Boston and Cambridge, Mass. where they show up on both the 1900 and 1910 censuses.

David R. Tobin m. Theresa H. MALONEY bef. 1913 and produced:
David R. Jr., Francis, Margaret M. and Raymond T. iN 1920 and 1930 the family lives in Lake Placid Village, North Elba, Essex County, NY.

It appears this family lived in both Carrigaline and Bandon, County Cork. If anything loks familiar, please contact me - happy to share.

I am a descendant of Michael Tobin, who owned a farm in Downing Kilworth Co Cork in the 1870s. All I know is that he died before 1901 and had a sister, Catherine (born 1850) who migrated to Massachusetts USA.

does this info fit in anywhere on your research

This is the background on what I know - maybe cousins at least? Attached is a Timeline Summary after they came to the USA. Let me know if you see a connection:

TOBIN REPORT 09 August 2006

Stephen Tobin & Johanna Donovan,
Ahalisky, gamekeeper
Roundhill / Old Chapel, coachman

Married at Timoleague RC church on 13 February 1866
Both full age, bachelor & spinster
Stephen, gamekeeper, Liselan, son of David [deceased], labourer
Johanna, servant, Ahalisky, dau. of James, dairyman
Witnesses: Michael Tobin X & James Donovan X

Birth Date Child Birthplace Registered by …
1866 Dec 10 Mary Ahalisky father
1868 Oct 19 Margaret “ “
1869 Sep 24 Hannah “ “
1871 Nov 24 Catherine “ “
1876 Nov 20 Ellen “ mother, X
1879 Oct 12 David “ Mary Tobin, Aghalisky
1881 Oct 24 Stephen Roundhill Hannah Tobin, mother
1884 Sep 19 Elizabeth “ “
1891 Jul 28 Thomas Old Chapel Hannah Tobin, mother, X

Ahalisky is a townland in the civil parish of Kilmaloda, and I suspect is in the Roman Catholic parish of Timoleague. Two points arise:

[1] As Stephen’s occupation is shown as ‘gamekeeper’ , it is possible that he was not a local man. The policy is to bring in outsiders for such posts, to prevent too much favouritism to the local poachers. Hannah Donovan is a native of Timoleague, evidence of the location of their marriage in 1866.

[2] Timoleague RC baptismal registers do not begin until 1842/1843, so it is doubtful that the baptisms of both Stephen [if he is a local man] and Hannah will be found.

As Stephen’s address at the time of his marriage is shown as Lisselan, my assumption is that he was working on the Bence Jones estate at Lisselan. I have included some information about this – for your further research. It is quite possible that Mark Bence Jones, Glenville House, Glenville, Co. Cork, will know the location of the estate papers, and may even possess them, as the family historian.

Roundhill is a townland just to the west of the town of Bandon, along the present N 71 road. Old Chapel is a local name for the same area, because it was the location of an 17th/18th century Roman Catholic church, in the days when this religion was still somewhat underground. There are several large houses in this area, so it is not possible to guess by whom Stephen was employed – unlike the Lisselan address at the time of his marriage.

No children were born in Carrigaline during the years you indicated. Furthermore, there is not a sufficient gap between David and Stephen for any ‘missing’ children. Where did the Carrigaline and Bandon information come from?

As there are nine children shown above, and the 1900 census indicates that Hannah had 11 children, of whom 8 are then alive we need to find the births of 2 more children, and the deaths of the three not alive in 1900. I suggest that Margaret born 1868 in one of the three dead children, as she does not appear on your family group. Is it possible that the other two children were born in Carrigaline, after those born in Bandon – and the dates you have are reversed?

Patrick was not found among the Bandon births, possibly agreeing with your assumption that he was not a sibling. So far, he has not been found in the computerised records.
