This orphan has been claimed by: Beverley Michelmore

My grandfather was John Lawrence Leary (sometimes John Thomas).  We are looking for his grand parents.  His father was John and mother Ellen (Splane). Also had a brother called Cornelius.   We think his father could have been an orphan for a time and his mother may have been Elizabeth Leary.  Would be grateful for any information from anyone else who may know anymore.
