Was he drinking beamish or murphys? And did he tell you about the gandhi family connection too?

Michael Collins didn't get married, so he didn't have kids, so he couldn't exactly have grandkids could he? This fella you were chattin' to must have had one Guinness too many!

+1 # michael comiskey 2011-04-19 19:10 Off course it was in Cork… The great man had no children, that he knew about and if there was a child, the Brits would have scandalised his memory, as they tried with Roger Casement. The guy in Cork was pulling your leg. Was'nt it one of them that shot him. May he and all his comrades Rest in Peace.. Reply | Reply with quote | Quote

+1 # Rob Noble 2012-07-27 03:30 I dont know much about my family tree, but here is what I do know. My father Carl was born a Collins. He was put up for adoption by my Grand Father because the mother was his sister in Law. They lived in Ohio. Mu Uncles still do. Never met them. My Grandfather was a pharmacist. His siter is the mother of Pete Rose. Which makes him my 2nd cousin. Never met him either. I dont know my Grandfathers name. I only know he is related to General Michael Collins. Could be a sibling or a cousin. Maybe someday I will find out. When I found out this information, I immediately bought the movie and read everything I could. It was amazing, were r the same height and from what I read have the same temperment. I definately have the family chin. I could see some resemblence. I guess most of the Collins living in Ohio are most likely my relatives. My Father Met them in the mid 90s. Some werent very welcoming, but I know that his brother the advertizer welcome him very much. Rob (Collins, Thompson) Noble Reply | Reply with quote | Quote

My mother and family lived in Ohio, for years. My mother is Verna Christine Collins, her parents (my Grandfather, Norman Collins and Grandmother,Cla ra Carroll Collins; originally from West Virginia and settled in Ohio in the 1920s or 1930s — also lived in Ashland, Kentucky and finally settled in Davenport, Florida where they died): We were told about a Grandfather who was adopted into the Collins family.

>> I dont know my Grandfathers name.

Norman Collins goes back to Samuel Jesse Collins and Lucretia Clere Collins, Clara Carroll Collins goes back to Christopher Columbus Carroll. We also go to the last name: Futz.

Contact me, I have a Collins page on Facebook, too.

-2 # niamh collins 2011-11-01 19:28 Irene,
Just wondering how far you have got with your research. I'm Niamh Collins, my dad was Jim Collins whose father was Maurice Collins who was married to Margaret O'Sullivan. Maurice Collins died aged 42 in 1936, my dad's first cousin owns the four alls which has been in the family for generations. My father's uncle who ran the bar Jeremiah died around 1983, some of his children are still alive and living in Rosscarbery. I have never been able to establish the exact relationship I may have with Michael Collins so any information you might have could solve the mystery for me too.

Thanks

Niamh

-1 # Josephine Dunn 2011-11-18 14:44 I have a family tree which was given to my cousin Pauline nee McCarthy by Mrs (wife of)Timothy Crowley. I am interested in the McCarthy line & where my gt grandfather Michael McCarthy may fit in. He was born in 1849 in or near Garralacka, co. Cork, studied agriculture at Glasnivin college & came to England to teach in the boys reformatory at Grace Dieu (Benedictine monastery) near Whitwick, Leicestershire.

Tree:

Tadha McCarthy married = 1785 Julia Ann O'Reilly
children –

1.Denis McCarthy = C. O'Conor 1817 Kilkerrin (her dob or marriage unclear handwriting?)
1.1 Johanna McCarthy = James O'Brien Sams Cross
children -
1.1.1 Daniel O'Brien
1.1.2 Jack O'Brien
1.1.3.Michael O'Brien
1.1.4 Marianne O'Brien b. 1852 +- 1 d. 1901 = 1875 Michael John Collins Woodfield (don’t know if this place of birth or marriage) b. 1815
children -
7 older children (1.2.1 - 1.2.7)
1.2.8 Michael Collins b. 1890 Sams Cross d. August 22nd 1922

2. Jeremia McCarthy = E. McCarthy Sarue
children -
2.1 Jerry McCarthy = Elen Donovan
children -
2.1.1 Patrick McCarthy = ?
children -
2.2.1 Florence Patrick

2.1.2 Denis McCarthy = ?
children -
Florence Denis

3. Timothy McCarthy b. 24th Dec. 1825 (unclear date due to handwriting) = M Keshane (not sure of this due to unclear handwriting)
Children –
3.1 Florence McCarthy Mor = Santry 1843 (not sure if this is dob or marriage, unclear handwriting?)
Children –
3.1.1 Florence Willie McCarthy = sister of Elizabeth Slyne (1st cousin below)
Children –
3.2.1 Willie Florence Kildare

3.2 Marry Ann McCarthy = Denis Slyne
Children –
3.2.1 girl ? = Florence Willie McCarthy (a/b)
3.2.2 Elizabeth Slyne = ?
Children –
3.3.1 girl = ? Crowley
Children –
3.4.1 Timothy Crowley

This is the Timothy Crowley you have giving a voice recorded interview on this site.

We think Johanna McCarthy was an aunt or gt aunt of my gt grandfather Michael McCarthy.

Can anyone help take my line back to Co. Cork, Ireland please?

Does anyone know where to find the ancestral tree back to Florence McCarthy who was a political prisoner of Elizabeth I?

Where is an English translation of Pacarta Hibernius? ie. kings of Ireland - McCarthy lineage. How can I access it please?

I am a direct descendant of Micheal McCarthy latterly of whitwick Leicestershire and formally of Clonakilty, Cork. The Florence you mention is a man known as Flor Mor McCarthy. It is reputed that Michaels brother? Uncle Jeremiah McCarthy bred the first Grand National winner. Do you have any information on this? Good luck with your search. Jo

I have not yet been able to establish where the link is. I have gone back to a Jeremiah Collins who was evicted from Tullyneasky and moved to the 4 Alls at Sams Cross. I was sent some information by Kieran Collins in connection with the Collins Centre. Your grandad Maurice and my grandmother Katie were brother and sister. I was over in October but the Bar appeared closed for renovations.
best wishes, Irene

Wondering if you can contact me to discuss how your Jeremiah and James were related to General Michael. Based on what I found James' wife was Mary Anne Collins of Tulineasky (parents Maurice and Bridget Keeffe - am I correct?)
My email is bernardnwalsh at eircom dot net - remove spaces and replace the "at" and "dot" as normal with "@" and "."

Josephine, I think I know where your gt grandfather Michael fits in. He was one of 7 children of Flor Mór and Mary Santry. He married Ursula Hawthorn of Leicester; they had 12 children. Does this fit?
Flor Mór's gt grandparents Tadg & Julanne McCarthy were my gggg grandparents. I have a lot of info on these McCarthys that I can share. E-mail me at

My ancestors were O,Briens, who farmed around Dunmanway in the early 1800's. I have a photograph that I was told was Michael Collin's grandfather or his brother.[ called just "O'Brien"] My grandmother, Mary-Anne O'Brien immigrated to Cardifff on the "Dido" in the early 1860's at the ageof one!
Any linkage?

Hi My grandmother always said her great aunt was a relative of Michael Collins. My gg grandmother's name was Honarah (Hannie, Hanna, Annie) Collins. They lived in West Maitland NSW where she married a Edward Hogan, before moving to Braidwood/Araluen areas of NSW. Honorah had a sister Mary. Could this be a relation of yours. I know there are Davidsons in the family tree.

-1 # Amy Stevenson 2011-10-22 09:56 Hi, after watching who do you think you are on the BBC with Devla kirwan and it was discovered that she Is related to Michael Collins, I wrote to the BBC as my great-grandfather, Edward Collins was born around the same time as Michael, in Cork so we were wondering if they were related.
It has now been confirmed from the BBC that they were (they claim they were brothers, but I'm not sure, any ideas where he fits in?) as I said, unsure of his birth, as we know very little about him; but it was around the turn of the 20th century. He also moved to London and married Maude Lily Emily Battell; my great- grandmother in 1917.

Any help would be great!

Amy,
I'm afraid the BBC are wrong about this. Michael Collins had 2 brothers, Patrick and Johnny (my grandfather). I have a family tree containing about 120 Collins, with not an Edward among them.

You might be able to confirm for me also then please. My great grandfather was Timothy Collins, born circa 1890. A Cork man born a raised.

Of course the Collins name means he could be connected to the big fellow but I've never had this confirmed.

My grandmother was Josephine Collins, originally from Wexford I believe, but eventually moved to Cork.

I was told she was a relation of Michael's but I do not know from where in the tree. Can anyone shed any light on this.

Quoting Irene Nagle:
Michael Collins father was Michael John Collins and his mother was Maryanne O'Brien. Siblings were Margaret,James, Johanna, Mary Ann, Helina, Patrick and Kathleen. He did not have a brother William! Helina became a Num and Hannie did not marry. Patrick went to Chicago and was a police officer. Margaret, James, Mary and Kate remained and married in Ireland.

Sorry mistake delete James and put in John. who married Kate Hurley and then Nancy O'Brien.

Dear Irene, you state that John Collins' second wife was Margaret O'Sullivan. May I ask if you know her secondary name? Was she an O'Sullivan Blasgagh (whose family lived in Maulyregan)? I am interested in this family (and also the O'Sullivans Buaig of Froe) and would be pleased to share any information I have that may be of interest to you.

0 # Irene Nagle 2011-11-18 21:55 My McCarthy line are from Sarue. Johanna McCarthy was from Garralacka, her mother was Cate O'Connor. I think she had a brother Florence and probably more siblings. Believe she died in 1916 - she outlived her daughter Maryanne, Michael's mother. Michael Collins family tree is available from National Library of Ireland, for a fee.

0 # Josephine Dunn 2011-11-19 17:28 Do you have a McCarthy tree please Irene? We think our Michael McCarthy was a brother to Johanna McCarthy as they were both born at Garralacka. He was baptised at Roscarbery & apparently his father walked there the day after he was born t get him baptised - very unusual. This may not be on the Michael Collins tree. The farm where Michael was born is now apparently a guest house - any info very welcome. thanks. Josephine Reply | Reply with quote | Quote
 
 
0 # Irene Nagle 2011-11-19 17:59 Sorry I do not have this tree, all my research is from the Irish Genealogy website which has the Church records. Johanna was born in the 1828's so as your Michael was born in 1849 I think the gap is too far for them to be siblings, unless the father married for a second time.

0 # Josephine Dunn 2011-11-22 17:55 Hi Irene, I would be really pleased if I can look at any other McCarthy family trees so I don't reinvent the wheel as ALL the McCarthy families are related. I also think that the tree Dolores Crowley gave my cousin (the one I put in my post) has several ommissions and/or mistakes. My gt grandfather was Michael mcCarthy born in Garalacka & baptised in Roscarbery 9th May 1848. His parents were Florence McCarthy & Mary Santry. Ive found their marriage entry & birth of several other children thaks to you advising on the Irish website. BUT Dolores tree doesnt have the correct children for this marriage so the tree is wrong. Ive also found lots of other McCarthys & it would be good to see where they fit in … ALL the McCarthys in Co Cork in fact in the whole of Munster are related - also related to the O'Briens, Collins, Sullivans, Fitzgeralds & etc. This is why the dynasty was so sucessfull. Also the name Florence (Finian) is in every branch as it comes down from Florence McCarthy Mor / Reagh who was a prisoner of Elizabeth I in the late 1500s - so the use of a middle name is essential & this is not always in the baptism record.

+2 # Michael Carl Budd 2011-02-09 05:42 I'm a relative of Michael Collins through his mother Mary Anne O'Brien. Her father, James O'Brien, had a brother Thomas who migrated to the US in 1857. James and Thomas had another brother, Fr. John O'Brien who I think may've been a priest in Kilmeen, not far from where Michael Collins grew up. When Michael Collins' brother Patrick came to America in his teens, he lived with his great-uncle Thomas in downstate Illinois for a while before moving to Chicago.

From the Chicago Tribune: "I came to America in 1901 [to live] with an uncle, Thomas O'Brien, who owned a large farm at Camp Grove, Ill., about thirty miles north of Peoria. I was then about 16 years old. I worked for my uncle, but after after a couple of years I quit the farm and came to Chicago."

Death records have helped me deduce that Michael Collins' grandfather James as well as my great-great-great-grandfather Thomas, their other brother John, and other siblings were the children of Daniel O'Brien and Mary Murray.

0 # Garry Collins 2011-07-10 11:08 Watching "who do you think you are"

My father looks like a young MC and my uncle looks like a 32yo MC - so there is a family resemblance.

My Grandfather Charles Collins was born in Aust in 1900. Not sure what Collins came to Aust from Limmerick, but it was in the late 1800s. Does anyone know of a male Collins in one or two generations before MC who emigrated to Aust.

Like others - the name Charles is common in my Collins family.

Thanks

Garry

John, please contact me at as I'm very keen on examining connections between the Collins and O'Brien families. My grandparents, Johnny Collins (brother of Michael) and Nancy O'Brien were also cousins, but I've been unable to find out how close cousins they were. I know of only two Margaret O'Briens in our family tree. One was my great-grandmother (mother of Nancy) and the other (who was actually born Collins) was married to Danny O'Brien, a brother of Marianne O'Brien (mother of Michael Collins, and also my great-grandmother).

His mother was Margaret Collins from the Bandon area, who emigrated to Wales, then the U.S. My (now-deceased) aunts were emphatic that grandpa was a "cousin" (must surely be second, third or fourth!) to Michael Collins. It certainly appears that half of of the Irish diaspora is a cousin to Michael Collins. But I would love to know if anyone can help trace this with the Collins pedigree.

0 # Michael S Bradley Sr 2014-01-18 20:33 Kathleen,

My great-great grandfather was John Richard Lawton of Cork. His father was Richard Lawton married to Johanna Cody (I think) and his father was Richard Lawton married to Anne Warren of Warrenscourt. Anne Warren was the daughter of Baronet Robert Warren of Warrenscourt who had married secondaly Elizabeth Lawton daughter of John Lawton of Cork. This John Lawton was the brother of Hugh Trayer Lawton, mayor of Cork in 1776.

I also have an interest in the Collin's because Jeremiah Bernard Collins married a possible cousin Catherine Lawton daughter James Lawton in New Orleans.

If you have any connection to any of these Lawton's or Collins, please let me know.

Thank You!!
Mike Bradley, Sr.

I am looking to find information about my family tree. My great grandmother was Katherine Ann Collins, nickname Kassie (maried last name Donovan). She had two brothers…Charley, and Vincent. I just found out that she came to Maidstone Ontario, a suburb of Windsor, near Detroit, and that is where my grandmother Marie was born. Fr. Charley lived in Detroit. My father also informed me (much to my great surprise) that I am related to Michael Collins Family of Ireland, and the Irish Revolution. He mentioned having a grandfather who was Chicago police. I unfortunately do not know the names of Katherine Ann Collins parents, but am told they came from County Cork in Ireland. Can anyone assist me or direct me where to go?

0 # skibbgirl 2012-02-02 06:01 The parents of James O'Brien may have been Daniel O'Brien and Mary Murray. Mary Murray may have had a brother who was a priest. I think I read somewhere that there was an ancestral Murray.

As far as I know the O'Brien = Murray marriage was in Ardfield & Rathbarry parish. Children I am aware of - James (1823?); John (1825); William (1832); Mary (1835); Patrick (1836); Denis (1839); Ellen (1842); Mary (1846).

I don't know which O'Brien Nancy O'Brien (a second cousin? who married Michael's brother Johnny) was descended from.

I have concluded all this from books, newspaper archives and online records, so this is very speculative. Somebody with true family insider knowledge needs to verify.

She had a son I believe his name was Kevin she told me his father had died in a sailing accident and she had run away from Ireland when pregnant, all this was about 20 to 30 years ago , I am now 57 myself .
Please let me know if there is any truth in this story of hers ?
I may be able to find more facts such as D.O.B .

0 # Michael Carl Budd 2013-01-30 05:57 Patrick lived with his great-uncle Thomas O'Brien north of Peoria, Illinois after emigrating from Ireland. He moved to Chicago sooner thereafter where he married Emma Doremus Jewell in 1912 and later Dora A. Lynch in 1943. With Emma, Patrick adopted a son John whose children are still alive (and therefore I'll refrain from publishing their names here). Reply | Reply with quote | Quote

0 # L. Wayman 2012-06-24 05:12 My great great grandfather was John Lawrence Collins of Bellacorrick Co. Mayo, possibly born in Lewisburgh. His parents were John Collins and Ellen Lynch/Lynn. He was born Feb 13, 1848. Left Ireland for the US in his teens, participated in the Fenian Brotherhood Battle of Ridgeway Canada and later returned to Ireland as a member of the IRB to take part in the uprising of 1967. Married his first wife Mary McHale in Crossmolina, and returned to the US, bringing also his mother, to Pennsylvania and had three children there. His second wife was my great great grandmother Philomena DeGan, they married in Chicago in 1883 and had 12 more children. John became a police officer there and died in 1918. I do not have any other details of his father John Collins but if anyone can help me find a link to Michael Collins' family tree I would appreciate it. Reply | Reply with quote | Quote

+1 # Carol Deasy 2012-11-20 18:15 My father and his family always held that we were related to Michael Collins and Michael's nieces and nephews, the Collins O'Driscolls spent holiday time at my greatgrandparen ts home in Milltown, Castlefreke, now called Rathbarry. I am unable to find what the actual connection is. I know it is not a direct line from one of Michale's siblings but rather that of a cousin.
My greatgrandmothe r's maiden name was Hayes and I think that is the connection.
I saw somewhere that Michael Collins' grandfather was a Jeremiah Collins, whose daughter Kate married a George Hayes but I am unable to find any record of this. Would anyone be able to throw light on the situation.
It is also possible that there is another connection through the O'Brien family. It will be much appreciated, if anyone can help.

0 # Michael Carl Budd 2013-01-30 05:51 Carol,

I would be very happy to be in touch to see if I can help you peg things down. I descend from the O'Briens. Maggie Collins-O'Driscoll and my great-grandmother were second cousins. Maggie was mentioned in my great-grandmother's grandfather's obituary that appeared in an Irish newspaper (he died in America).

Michael Collins's grandfather James was born at Carrigroe and was the first O'Brien of that family as far as I know to settle at Sam's Cross. The family burial place of the O'Briens is at the old Castlefreke cemetery.

-Carl

I hope this helps.

0 # Steve C 2013-02-22 09:11 Interesting. My grandmother's father was named Timothy Collins and they are from Cork, could this be a connection?

I was always told that the family were connected with Michael Collins in some way but never figured out how.

My grandmother was born in 1931 and her father (Timothy), was born in circa 1890. Does that add up to anything?

Alexandra, Michael John Collins was my great grandfather. I have done a lot of research into the family. He did not have any sisters, just 6 brothers. One of them, John, married Mary Coakley of Glounbrack on 23 Feb 1841, and had 4 sons and 5 daughters, one of whom was Julia, born in Sep 1865. Could she be your g-grandmother?

It seems as though you left off a sibling of Michael Collins. I did not see his sister Mary Collins who married Patrick Powell on the tree above. They had several children Sean Collins Powell who I believe was a General and recently honored in Ireland? I believe my fathers cousin married the youngest child of Mary Collins and Patrick Powell.


Maurice (Mossie) McGrath married Brenda Powell. He died in 1975

I am intrigued as the same family names seem to crop up, Jeremiah for one. Could this be the same Thomas who married Hannah, Uncle of Michael Collins? If so I would be a distant cousin, no idea how that is worked out! My family are also connected to the Hayes family of Clonakilty by marriage. Reply | Reply with quote | Quote

0 # Jeffrey Middlebrook 2014-03-16 12:15 From 2003 to 2009 I was in a long-distance romance with the great-niece of Michael Collins. Her name is Michaela O'Driscoll (she was Pauline but changed her name), from Glastonbury, England (now residing in South Africa). I saw her family's scrapbook filled with everything to do with Michael Collins. Michaela's mother was the niece of Michael, but I don't know which of Michael's siblings was the mother or father of Michaela's mother. Michaela's parents (both deceased) were health professionals educated in Ireland before moving to London. Michaela's dad was an MD and the mother was I believe a pharmacist. Michaela's only brother is Des (probably short for Desmond?) and he lives in London I believe. I met him once at a Christmas dinner party in London. Hopefully this little bit of info helps in some way. Reply | Reply with quote | Quote
