Irene: I found Thomas and Bridget's names on their son, James Hobbins, death certificate in Brown County WI. Also, in COMMEMORATIVE BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD OF THE FOX RIVER VALLEY COUNTIES OF BROWN..... (published in 1895 J.H. Beers & Co., Chicago) it states: "James Hobbins, the oldest living settler in Rockland township, Brown county, is a native of the Emerld Isle, born in 1816 in County Tipperary, SON OF THOMAS HOBBINS, a farmer. The latter had a family of ten children - seven sons and three daughters - of whom James is the eldest son." and a whole long article on James. Nothing more on the other children.
Then in another HISTORY OF BROWN COUNTY, Town of Holland, I found info on PATRICK Hobbins from Tipperary. He married Bridget Brown from Mayo, Ireland. And PATRICK BOYLAN, from County Tipperary. He married a Sarah Mears from Tipperary.
I cannot really fit all of this into the Hobbins puzzle. Seems the Boylans and Hobbins are intermixed several times.
