My Grandfather's name was 'Coogan'and was born in Cuffsgrange, which is the diocese of Ossory. Born, about:-
1888 - 1892
He married my Grandmother - Ellen KEARNEY. born July 1902, I believe in a place called 'Coolagh?' - Kilkenny. She was a Farmers daughter, her brother inherited the farm, but later sold it. He (name?), became the Court House Keeper in Kilkenny, but died just before he moved into a lovely Cottage he had just bought for his retirement, which was in the same street as Kilkenny Castle.
Mr and Mrs Coogan (my grandparents), had 9 children, I only recall the names Elizabeth (Betty), Bridgette (Brida), Eileen (my mother), Kevin, James and I believe Patrick (who died at a young age?). Living in Kilkenny, Ireland.
They all migrated to England (1940s?) my grandparents, have since passed away - so lack vital information. Anybody with any infomation or knowledge of this family would be really happy to hear from you. Thanks - Nadia
