New Ross-Allen/Kehoe
I am just starting research on my mothers (Irish) side of the family.The only info I have is from a conversation going back 10-15 years and the(very brief) notes I made shortly afterwards.
The family came from New Ross early 1900's.Grandparents-James Allen & Catherine(nee Kehoe).James had numerous siblings-2 names Seamus and Sean.Ihave several names on Catherines side-Mary Elisa,T(h)eresa,Anastasia,Tom,Edward.
James and Catherine moved to and lived in Birkenhead.Their children were Jimmy,John,George,Patrick,Joseph,Laurence,Margaret(my mother),Mary.
Mother remembered going back to New Ross(ferry from Liverpool)to visit relatives several times. One Grandfather on Allen side was apparently a farrier-one on grandmother(Kehoe)side was a cobbler.
Other info - a cousin apparently joined RAF and was killed in WW2,joining up apparently caused problems in family!!
An Uncle(not known which side of family)was said to be Sergeant Major in British Army-Regiment not known.
Not expecting too much but you never know-might ring a few bells!!
