Hi Mary,well this is a rare find!Finally our names reach "Genforum"! Martin Hobbins was the son of Patrick joesph Hobbins and Mary catherine O'Brien!Patrick was the son of Denis Hobbins and Ellen Loughane! Mary catherine was the Daughter of Michael O'Brien and Nancy ann O'Brien (same surnames,occurs in Hobbins as well!)What i know about martin,is he was the brother to my grandfather,maurice Hobbins!martin was born Dec.23rd,1870 at peterbourough!He married Catherine Kennedy,she died June.19th,1962.There are no longer decendents in Peterbourough who carry the name,but there are plenty of decendents who are Hobbins in the area (ie)O'Brien,Mahoney,Hogan,and more than likely Kennedys!I also have plenty of old photos,hopefully i'll get them all online someday!!!Patrick Hobbins of Michigan is also researching the familly,he's a decendent of Michael Edward Hobbins,martins brother!!!Hope to hear from you soon,Sincerely,Rick Gilley.
