James Tobin b. abt 1809 in Newtownbarry, d. 1 Mar 1892 in Chicago. is my great-great grandfather.  His wife was Margaret (nee Quinn, I think-hard to read).  I am looking for a marriage record and of course any other information on his family in Ireland.  Thanks.

  • Thanks Clare.  Subscription to rootsireland ran out.  No luck on other sites yet.  I will continue to dig and look forward to July 8th!  I posted in the hope that someone might recognize the family and have some firsthand knowledge.
