Trying to get information on parents of William Lenihan (born 1881) Newcastlewest who married Eliza? Sweeney. I think parent is John Lenihan born 1845 in Cork? Have found a John Linehan of Castletownroche of the correct age and there is a family belief that the Linehans came from Cork originally. Having real trouble identifying the correct spouse and the parents of William. William had one sister called Margaret born in Newcastle 1886? Can't find their mother on the 1901 census or the father, but Margaret Lenihan aged 14 resides with her grandfather William Sweeney in Boola, Knockglass, Limerick. Any information or suggestions welcomed.
