Hi,

Im researching Irish Family History for a friend, who is researching the names; O Brien, Phelan and Stokes. Could someone help please?

Her Dad was; Patrick Joseph O Brien, who was born in; 1920 (Somewhere in Ireland) Not sure where. He was illegitimate,and his Mam was; Mary Joe O Brien. Don't know when or when she was born. Only that my friends Dad, was adopted, Mary Joe O Brien, was her real Mam, and he was adopted by someone called; Murphy? (Surname).

My Friends Mam, was; Anne or Annie Mary Phelan, who was born in; 1925, Ballyroan, Ireland. After Patrick Joseph O Brien, died, he died around 1945, Annie remarried to; Martin Stokes in; 1959.

I realise this will be difficult, but I would love to be able to help my friend!

Thanks,

Carly
 
this is from the Irish 1911 census. It could be your Mary Joe as she would have been 19 when Patrick was born
