Searching for information regarding my Colbert family history in Ireland, Havent had much luck in finding anything of relevance in Ireland so far.
Ancestors were Michael Colbert, his son (may have had more children i do not know), Patrick Colbert c.1840/1 born in Ireland, Patrick married in S.Wales in 1868 to an Irish woman (widow) Mary Fitzgerald (Flynn) c.1835/6. Mary had 2 sons James c1857 and Michael Flynn c.1864 both born in Swansea S.Wales UK. She married Patrick in 1867, then they had 2 sons John Colbert c.1868 (my g-grandad)born in Swansea d.1943 in Swansea, and Edward Colebert (on birth certificate) c.1870 also born in Swansea, The family lived in Emma Street in 1871 in Swansea, They are not on the entire 1881 census of the UK, but in 1891 John Colbert is on there with his wife Lily Colbert (Beynon) and young son Harry Colbert c.1890, so obviously he returned to marry and settle in Wales, however i do not know where the others went. Due to John returning i think that the family may have gone to Ireland to live, but have found no evidence of this.
Any leads???????please contact, even if it is to give me some direction.
Thank you. Jen Colbert~S,Wales
