I am looking for any information re: William Holden and his wife Anne/Annie, (maiden name Cunnion/Cunningham) who lived in the Bohernabreena area of Dublin in the late 1800's. They were my great grand parents and I would dearly love to learn more about them.
Their daughter Annie was my grand mother and she married a soldier named Arthur William Baston.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
