Cobain Database (Cobains in Ireland in the 1800's)
This is an alphabetical listing by first name of various Cobain data. There are 5 entries per page. Each listing indicates the first, middle and last names of the individual. It incudes the name of the spouse (if available) and the address (if available). The item (e.g. birth, death, marriage, etc.) is listed and the source. The purpose of this listing is to provide a record of all Cobains in Ireland in the 1800's. Due to the scarcity of records for the early 1800's it is my hope that this might help others to ascertain their family members. If you have additional information on any of the Cobains listed or new entries that are not on the list, please forward the information to I will see that the databse is updated periodically. I have attempted to add a "Family Code" when I know that the person belongs to another family in the database. I have grouped these families by area. Therefore, T1 refers to the the first family I have come across from Co. Tyrone. T2 would be the second family in the database from that area, etc. "K" is Kilbride, "L" is Larne, etc.
