My grandfather's name was John Laurence Leary and his brother was Cornelius Leary. Their father was John and their mother Ellen Leary. We think that their grandmother could have been Elizabeth Leary and that they could have been named after their father and perhaps another relative. John and Cornelius were born in Launceston in 1880 and 1882 respectively. We are also having trouble locating information on Ellen Leary.
We would like to contact anyone who had information on this family.
