have just found your site and have been reading through the lists of like minded people who are curious about their past. This is truly a wonderful site. I actually have a slightly different request. In 1993 my husband and I purchased a delicenced hotel in Hargraves Street, Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia. It was built by Fitzgerald Brewing (Castlemaine XXX beer in those days Castlemaine XXXX now - the no. of X's denote the beer strength). Fitzgerald Brewing has been taken over so many times during its long life that all historical records have disappeared. I have found the hotel was once called The Devonshire Arms Hotel and Goodall Family Hotel. I am particularly interested in any photos of the exterior or interior as I would like to restore the hotel. I have found many marks on walls both inside & out that show significant alteration over the years. I am also very interested in the lives of the people that lived within its walls. I have heard that Fitzgerald Brewing moved to Queensland after some form of tiff between owners but cannot find any records to confirm this. I have also found that an Elsie Grigg was a publican at one stage but need more info. if possible.
Hope someone can help me. Lynne Mewett: lynne(at)creativeambience.com.au
Above was my initial request for help. Over time I have been able to gleen some more names connected to the hotel - Thomas Durant in 1864 applied for a publican's license (granted Mar. 21, 1866) and the corner the hotel is located on (as a weatherboard building) was called Durant's Corner. The hotel was clld Devonshire Hotel & General Store. I think this may have been sold to G.A. Tather and there seems to be a name change to George Alexander Hotel. The hotel was transferred to Ann &/or Amy Isabella Marcus in 1889 then Charles McLean in Jan. 17th 1891 then to Thomas Goodall Feb. 21st 1891. Thomas Godall advertised a tender for re-building. Devonshire Arms being demolished - had a weatherboard front. Next mention is Hannah Goodall Dec. 14th 1899 then transferred to William Gourlay - still Devonshire Arms Jul. 14th 1901 then transferred to William Henry Curnow Aug. 13, 1904 still there Dec.13 1904. My trail ends here. This information from the Mount Alexander Mail was given to me by someone called Sharon. I thank her very much for this information from which I have found that Thomas Durant was a grocer (The Argus) - something happened to him 1866 - either bankruptcy or death. I have come across some Trustee notices (The Argus) which are quite vague.
Hope someone can shed more light on The Devonshire Arms Hotel 1880's in Castlemaine. Lynne Mewett: lynne(at)creativeambience.com.au

I was very impressed with the list of tombstones on your website. The locations are very well recorded. I would like to know if anyone has done the same for the RC section of the Strabane Cemetery or for St. Mary's, Melmount Road Cemetery Strabane County Tyrone Northern Ireland.
Any Information would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely

I am a descendant of the PEARD, MOREY and MAITLANDs from Mannus near Tumbarumba, many of whom are buried in both Tumbarumba cemeteries. If anyone else is researching these families I'd be very happy to make contact. I'm aware there was a Peard family book published a few years back but I don't know how to get hold of a copy now. Specifically my family are John Peard and Mary Burleton, William Morey and Fanny Fox, Thomas Maitland and Elizabeth Unknown, all from the mid-late 1800s.

I'm an amateur genealogist who is just now beginning my quest for more Info on the Harney Family. My husband on his maternal side is related to the Harney's of Templemore, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, and more specifically Manna Cottage is said to be the original home site. If you could direct me to any Harney's there in Templemore or to any sites that would be helpful to my quest for info, I would be very appreciative.

What a change to find a web site that acts like an open forum for anyone interested congratulations.
We are currently tracing my wife’s family and have found a number of names that are causing conflict. During WW1 Robert Eli Hearn met and married Isabella Margaret Melrose in (we believe) Scotland when they met whilst Robert was in hospital in 1918. Isabella Came to Australia in 3/1919 and she was pregnant with my wife’s father (Archibald) who was born in August 1919 at Ballarat. Isabella was living with Robert’s parents at Rokewood Junction for most of this time.
When Robert returned from UK in 9/1919 Archibald had been born and Isabella had left the family home at Rokewood Junction and taken off with Robert’s cousin (who also served in WW1 in Egypt but returned in 4/1919). The cousin’s name was William Mathew Jones and he shows in his army enlistment records that his father was C Jones and he was born in Camperdown Vic. No record can be found that confirms any of these claims but the Jones connection is quite strong with a confirmed certificate showing Robert’s father had married a Jones.
William and Isabella left to live in Sydney and assumed the name of Smith which is the name that Archibald was known as and also my wife and her siblings. We can find no marriage certificate for William and no divorce papers for Robert and Isabella……..not surprising considering the efforts taken to hide their past. Robert made some early attempts to make contact with William and Isabella but when this was not forthcoming he married Maud Harvey in 1920.
We would appreciate any information on William’s background and also any details on Isabella prior to 1919. Also any details on Robert with his 2nd wife Maud and any children from that marriage.

This could be a plot for a novel !!!!

Thanks Gary and Thora Crich gary.crich@finmail.com.au

Hello, i'm searching for some history on my great grandparents Richard Cook & Rosina McNally if anyone can help . They were married in Cooma around 1866. They had 11 children, one of which was my grandfather. All the other children seem to have been born around Cooma, Tumut & Tumbarumba. I have no info on Richards parents but would love to find out about them. All i have on Rosina is that she was born around 1945 to Micheal & Mary McNally. No mention of where she was born but i do have her as dying in1929 at Tumut. I have a list of Richard & Rosina's children but not sure if details are complete.

Abigail Cook b 1867 Cooma d 1868....Richard Gavid Cook b1869 Cooma d 1947 Tumut....Francis W Cook b 1871 Cooma...Mary Elizabeth Cook b 1873 Cooma...Rose Cook b 1875 Albury (river murray)...Harriet Cook b 1877 Albury (river murray)...William Cook b1881 Albury (river murray) d 1947 Liverpool nsw...Thomas Roland Cook b1884 Albury (river murray) d 1942 Tumut... Joseph Cook (my g'father) b1887 Albury (river murray) d 1961 Penrith...Abigail Cook b 1892 Tumbarumba.

The places of birth are actually place of registration of birth im pretty sure.

Great grandmother Rosina died in 1929 at Tumut. If anyone knows anything on Rosina or Richards family background i would really love to hear from you please. email me at ronsol(at)live.com.au

Hi Sue, just trawling and came across your excellent site. I'm trying to track down the forbears of Michael Francis Purtell. His father was John Michael we think of Co Clare. Now Michael married Margaret Prout. She died and left him with 5 children to rear. One of those sons , John Joseph Purtell was my grandfather.

If anyone has a link that would be superb, blessings, Peter Pritchard. Bendigo.

I came across your page of gravestone transcriptions through Google today. I do not know what contacts you have but would be most curious to know. My father in law Francis O'Hare used to visit the home of Denis Fogarty (d 26.11.1931 by your transcription!) in Loughmore with his mother Mary Ann O'Hare (nee Fogarty, niece of Denis). Although Mary Ann was born in Liverpool, her parents Philip Fogarty (who may have been a brother of Denis) and Jane Fogarty, formerly Jane Parkinson, were both born in Tipperary. I should be delighted to know of any others researching this branch of the family.
Thank you for the work you obviously put into the list. It has been such a
delight to discover it. Please use my e-mail for contact.

Wow! What a great site. I am seeking info re : Daniel Walsh (yes thousands of them, I know. My Daniel was born in 1845, Roscrea, Tipperary to Daniel Walsh and Margaret or Mary O’Donohue. NO RECORDS CAN BE FOUND or I don’t know where to start.
Daniel left Ireland either alone between 1868-1874 for New Zealand. Once again we can’t find records. He married Elizabeth Cleary in Dunedin NZ in 1875. I have a full family tree from there if anyone is interested or related.
Elizabeth was born in Banagher, Ireland 1851 to John Cleary and Honora Molloy. They married in 1823, I think. Elizabeth had a sister, Ann, much older ,who came and married in Victoria Australia. Once again records available.
But, I cannot find data to confirm any of Daniel and Elizabeths family background. The marriage cert from NZ states nothing and Ive tried the church as well… nothing.
Anyone able to help????

Hello, I am hoping that someone might be able help me trace my father's side of our family. His name was William Lyons son of George Michael Leonard Lyons (known as Nugget) and Gertrude (nee Greentree) Bateup. His parents were William Lyons & Charlotte Matilda Winter. Charlotte was born in 1863 at Merriwa, William was born in 1853 in Gulgong. They had 8 children, the twins William and Winfred born in 1900 did not survive. The other brother's & sisters (Vera Joan B. 1896 D. 1902, Leslie Reginald B. c1902 D. c1974, Audrey Joan B. 1904 D. c1967, Robert B. 1908 D. c1938 & Zara Daphne B. C 1909.) were all born around the Mudgee Gulgong area. I have found some information on my great Aunts & Uncles. But both my parents have passed away and as far as I am aware do not have any living relatives today. Unless I have some cousins' I know nothing about. I have now hit the proverbial brick wall with them. I can't seem to find much about great grandfather William. I have his year of birth but that is it. I can't find his parents. His wife Charlotte is obviously related to the Winters in the area and also the Knights. Her mother Matilda Reed married twice. Firstly to George Winter in 1862 at the Church of England Church at Merriwa & William Knight in 1855 at Cassilis. Also Matilda & William Knight's daughter Esther B. 1857 D. 1941 Married Malcolm Carr B.1850 D. 1927 were married in Gulgong on the 23rd June 1875. So I have a bit of a link with the Carr's as well. Can anyone help me find some information on Great Grandfather William and his family.

I would like to list my interests to your site
My greatgrandparents
William McKane or McKean was born about 1858 in Strabane, Tyrone, Ireland. He was the son of John and Mary (Dow). He had a brother named John born about 1869.
Mary White born about 1857 in Strabane(?) .She was the daughter of John and
Elizabeth (?) White. She had a sister named Eliza born abt Nov 1863.
William and Mary were married on Feb 3,1885 in Camus-Juxta Mourne Christ Church in Strabane. The marriage record says that William was age 26 and living in Woodend Leckpatrick at the time and Mary was age 27 and living in Strabane.
Shortly after their marriage, they left Ireland and arrived in a port in Boston, Mass in March of 1885. They settled in Everett, Massachusetts until their deaths in 1925.
William's brother John and Mary's sister Eliza also came and settled outside of Boston.
I believe that the parents of both William and Mary stayed in Strabane.
If anyone believes they might be related to this family or can help me with information about this family..I would love to hear from you. Audrie: Email: Stargzer1954(at)yahoo.com

Searching for at least 20 years for information regarding Mary Roberts(nee Hackett)born to James Hackett and Ann Kelly c. 1848 who married William Roberts 1863 “Clerkness” Bundarra NSW. Reason to suspect they were in Queensland 1866. William died at Warialda NSW 1901.Buried in Warialda Cemetary without a headstone. His death cert. stated he had one male child living at time of his death -Christian name and age unknown- even though the informant was William’s youngest sister, Ann Cross. It appears a mystery as to what happened to his wife Mary and child?

Thanks for the invite. My DENT family, Susan and William settled in Bombala in 1853, their daughter Mary and husband James JOHNSON going to Woolway Station near Berridale. James subsequently worked as a shearer/sheepwasher around the Monaro until 1867 when they re-settled in Candelo and he became the poundkeeper. His mate was Skelton HEAD, also a shearer. I have an undated - c1868-70 - un-named photo which I'm trying to identify and hope to find some DENT, JOHNSON, HEAD descendants who might have the same photo in an old album. It is currently showing at the beginning of the William and Susan DENT page on the Monaro Pioneer website. I'm also attaching a "doctored" version which makes their faces clearer.
I do know that Susan and William sit in the centre foreground surrounded by grand-children Eliza, Sussanah and Margaret Johnson. I think James and Mary JOHNSON are standing on the extreme left. I think the DENT brothers William and Isaac (with the moustaches) are standing on the extreme right. I think the youngest son Charles DENT is sitting on the extreme left and his wife Clara Mary (FORD) is sitting on the extreme right. I think the photo might have been taken in 1868 to commemorate their wedding. That leaves the man standing second from the left as being Skelton HEAD who married Ann DENT, who would be on his right. Just need confirmation and am happy to pass the photo on to interested descendants.
Not any of your people I know but perhaps someone seeing this might know something. Many thanks. Dawn Coleman (descended from James Mary's dau Eliza - who married John Leplaw - whose dau. Harriet married Wilhelm Thaler - whose dau. Wilhelemenia "Billie" married Stan Bancroft - whose first dau. I am.)

Thank you so much for the opportunity to add my family names to your page with the hope that someone will see them and come to my aid, because after months of research I am stuck: Again, thank you.
Please, if you know ANYTHING about these persons, even if it is just something small, please contact me on kwikmail@aapt.net.au
JAMES GORDON HUGHES (22.10.1899 -- 19.12.1977) married to Ellen Teresa Perry. I think JAMES had siblings but I have never found evidence of this.
MARY PHILLIPS was his mother (married James Hughes born 1869) but all I have about her is the name.
MARGARET GORDON (married William Hughes born 1837) again all I have is her name.
SARAH PAYTEN (married to Charles Hughes born around 1800 in England I think) and again all I have is her name and her father's name, Thomas Payten.
CORNELIUS HALL (B 1848 - D 1928 Bega) was the son of JOHN HALL and EMMA whom I have nothing on at all.
CATHERINE TIERNEY was married to Cornelius Hall, and her parents were EDWARD and ELIZABETH - nothing about them at all.
Hope you can help.
Warmly -- from Robyne Clark.

I am searching for Ethelwyn Joanne Maloney or Veronica Malone/Maloney,
Gertrude Maloney and Patrick Flannagan (sp?) known to be in Adelaide circa 1922. I have only found 1 Ethelwyn Joanne Maloney in the world (so far that is!!) and she was born and died in Delaware USA. Whether she travelled to Australia in 1922 I cannot find out. Perhaps a relative in Australia used her name. I don't know - I have been searching for 34 years and still keep
looking and hoping that someone may know of these people.I am quite happy for you to publish my email name and address. Thankyou, for taking the time to read this email.

Hi ... my name is Jane Hill,
I would like to thank you for making the cemetery listings available on line... they are fabulous and have made it possible for our family to find our long lost Great Great Grandparents.
I would like to claim Mary O'Keefe. died Oct 11th 1886... aged 58 Years. yass Cemetery.
I have discovered quite a bit of info on her families. She was married twice....
1st Marriage Job Smith ( Sydney) They had 6 children.... Job also had 5 by a previous marriage to Elizabeth Buckley ( Job was also known as John)
They moved to Yass in 1857 and Job died suddenly of Jaw cancer.
Mary married Michael O'Keeffe in Yass in 1859 and went on to have another 3 probably 4 children.
She would have therefore raised 15 children.... hence the headstone inscription
Erected by her children....
She died at age 58 of Cancer of the Uterus.
I would love to make contact with family related to this brave lady and I would like my email attached to her listing.
Much appreciated Jane Hill.

Thank you so much for the splendid effort you have put into this site. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through it.
My main research interest is in the Yass area. In particular William Sharman (c1810-1847) who came out as a convict and worked as a shepherd on a property at Bogalong. He died in 1847 leaving a young wife (Julia Shortall 1818-1905) and two small children Mary Ann (b. 1843 Windsor NSW) and Martin (b. 1845 Yass). His wife Julia was pregnant with their son William who was born at Queanbeyan NSW a few months after his father’s death at Bogalong. She gave her profession as washerwoman when baby William was christened at St Gregory’s R/C.
I understand there were no newspapers at the particular time but I would dearly like to know more about the details of William Sharman’s death if anyone has a suggestion to offer.

I am researching the Quinlan family, require any information on Thomas Quinlan married Mary Ann Dwyer, their son Joseph James Quinlan born Mortlake Vic 1869 married Catherine/Katherine/Kathleen Ward (aka Hughes) 1924, died Darlinghurst 1955.I have no information on siblings for Joseph James (known as Jim) Quinlan. The family are believed to have lived in the Warrnambool area of Victoria. Joseph James Quinlan was actively involved in horse racing, training race horses, and at one time was an amateur jockey. He was a butcher by trade. Any information on either Thomas Quinlan (father) Mary Ann Dwyer (mother) and Joseph James (son) my grandfather would be gratefully accepted. Joseph James Quinlan lived in Coonamble for many years before moving to his son's stables at Kensington,(Sydney). I do not know where Thomas and May Ann lived or died, but I believe Thomas died early and Mary Remarrried. I would be very gateful of any information.

ALSO searching for information on Bernard Ward born 1841 Gulgong married Margaret Carroll 4 March 1878 at Gulgong and was killed at "Bullarora" via Coonamble 3 Aug 1878 aged 37 years. I believe he was buried at "Bullarora", possibly at the site of his death which is stated as an earth fall during tank sinking. His death certificate gives little information. does not state the actual cause of his death. No information regarding his parents names etc. Also fails to mention he had a child. She was 5 months old at the time of his death,her name was Catherine Mary Ward born 31 March 1878 at Gulgong. Does any one know of the Ward family living in Gulgong during the 1840's. His wife Margaret married a John Hughes after his death. John Hughes is stated as a witness to the burial of Bernard Ward on the death certificate. Mararet and John had 3 daughters, Maggie died aged 14 yrs, plus Maude & Bridget ( who both married two brothers Peter and John Callaghan) and lived in Coonamble most of their lives. Any information please email

Hi, wondering if anyone can help with my family history..I am l looking for information on the VAUGHAN family who lived in Carcoar and then Warren NSW. I believe the family started in Sydney in early 1800's with RICHARD VAUGHAN and wife LYDIA who lived eventually in Warren NSW. Their family then moved into the Warren area and also stayed in Carcoar. I believe one son of Richard was PETER VAUGHAN married to ANNIE FITZGERALD. They had many children, one of who was LYDIA VAUGHAN also from Warren. Would love to have any information on any of these families...many thanks. kathy Vaughan

Hi this is a wonderfull site, I am trying to locate my family they are from the Richards, Bessell, side. My father is Graeme Leslie Richards born 10 dec 1939 at 6 appledore street devonport tasmania., his father was Wincent Edward John Richards born 19 june 1916, and his father Herbert John Richards birth 10 dec 1895,Ross, Tas. Herberts wife was Corrinda Richards. Now Wincent went under the name of Winston or (Jack) He married my grandmother MAY EDITH JOSEPHINE BESSELL in 1938, then May left and the story is Wincent married May's sister Lorna Lillian around 38 years ago. I have tried to find May's details and Lornas but this is proving very difficult. I have my fathers birth cert and it says he had a brother but I have no idea of his name or how to find him. May apparently moved to Castlemaine Victoria and it is said she married a Charles (surname unknown). May Had died in Victoria but I can't find her death any where. Lorna Lillian had been a housekeeper for a Jean Bessell nee Campbell. And it is said that a man MR COLE who was blind lived with Lorna at Don Devonport in Tasmania. If any one can help trace my family history it would be most appreciated. Graeme, Wincent, Corrinda, May and Herbert have passed away and Lorna is a recluse and will not tell any one any thing.

Hi Mike & Sue!
Help! I am tracing my family tree and seem to be hitting the proverbial 'brick wall'!
I am looking for any information on Maude Parker (my grandmother). Maude, I am told, was related to the 'Baileys', of Yarramalong, St. Albans, & Wyong, although I can't find how! lol. She lived with her daughter, Jean Evelyn Parker, at Riverwood, NSW in 1950-1960's, until she moved to Septimus Street, Punchbowl and lived with her other daughter, Maizie Buckley. I believe that she passed over mid 1960's and is buried with her husband (my grandfather), although i haven't been able to locate any cemetery records on this. I also do not know my grandfather's christian name, which makes things all the more difficult. She also had a son, whose name was John Parker. He is now deceased. Can u pls place me on your geneology request list.

Hello
My brother and I are searching our family history in preparation for a reunion end of March 08. We have found some info but now some of it is running into one another, can anyone help us out. Our Great grandparents were James John Stewart and Catherine Hayes. They had children known to us named James (b ? 1875), Thomas (b ? 1876), Gordon (our grandfather, born 1891 Died 1984 may have been registered as Henry), Anne, Grace, Ethell, Louisa, Hilda (b 1901), Nell and perhaps Sarah (b 1877) and Mildred May (b 1894 d 1909). We have found a John Stewart born 1823 and died 1868. joined Army in 1837 aged 14yrs and served in Boar War Unsure where he fits into the picture but the other ones we are unsure of are Thomas Stewart born 1857, died 1918 buried at Boorowa son of John Smith Stewart and Mary Cyria, married to Bridget Gibbons daughter of Gardiner and Winifred Gibbons. Bridget was born in 1829 and died in 1926. Buried with Thomas at Boorowa. Given the age difference its hard to believe these two were husband and wife, wondered if in fact Bridget is buried with a son called Thomas because the othe Thomas Stewart was born in 1876. Some of these people were born in Deniliquin, Muswellbrook and Boorowa as our grandfather was a roustabout/shearer. Also Anthony Thomas Stewart brother of John Stewart and a Grace Stewart was married to Mary Elizabeth Hayes and they had a son James Edward Stewart born in 1867 and died at 12yrs in 1879 . Hope this is not all too confusing but we are stuck for linking it all together. Most of the family appeared to be centred around Boorowa NSW. Please help with any more info.

I am currently researching the MacRae and Osmond families. I believe that my GG Grandfather Donald MacRae was buried in Nimmitabel in 1906, aged about 84. My G Grandmother was Frances Anne Osmond, her mother was a Sturt. Frances married Donald MacRae (son of the above, obviously) and they moved to North Wagga Wagga where they both died, he in 1936 and she in 1961.
Donald jnr. was a photographer and worked in the Bega, Cooma, Nimmitabel areas (and probably other places as well). Would love to hear from anyone connected in any way.

Have just discovered your wonderful site today, following receipt of my great grandfather’s death certificate which has led me to Yass. Could anyone help me with information relating to a John McPherson who lived at Wee Jasper and died in Yass Hospital on 9 February 1922? He married Elizabeth Park/Parks/Parkes in 1874 and had three children, Charles, Thomas and William born 1876-1879. His occupation is listed as Labourer. Any clues would really be appreciated as I’ve been tracing John and Elizabeth for the last two years with little success. My email address is terry.mann(at)bigpond.com. Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi Mike & Sue!

Help! I am tracing my family tree and seem to be hitting the proverbial 'brick wall'!
I am looking for any information on Maude Parker (my grandmother). Maude, I am told, was related to the 'Baileys', of Yarramalong, St. Albans, & Wyong, although I can't find how! lol. She lived with her daughter, Jean Evelyn Parker, at Riverwood, NSW in 1950-1960's, until she moved to Septimus Street, Punchbowl and lived with her other daughter, Maizie Buckley. I believe that she passed over mid 1960's and is buried with her husband (my grandfather), although i haven't been able to locate any cemetery records on this. I also do not know my grandfather's christian name, which makes things all the more difficult. She also had a son, whose name was John Parker. He is now deceased. Can u pls place me on your geneology request list.

Dear Sue & Mike, just found your website with details of Tumberumba and think I have located a missing great uncle and his family. Roderick Smith married 1891 to Rebecca Doughty and they had several children all born at Tumberumba between 1892 and 1910 when the mother and her last child died. I would be grateful if any living descendants could contact me. I have a photo of my Mother as a child with her cousin (unidentified) which could possibly be one of these children. Barbara

Hi
I was wondering if you could help me. My great grandmother is buried at the Church of England cemetry in Jugiong however i was unable to find her onyour list of people buried their. I have her death certificate her name is Caroline Ann Clayton and she died 13/01/1917. I am trying to track down my great grand father as i have very little information about him other than his name and that he was born in England. I don't know when he died or where he was buried but i am assuming he would have been buried with his wife (Caroline Ann Clayton). His name is James Clayton. I was wondering if you could give me some idea of how to proceed or a contact number for the cemetry as i have been unable to find one.
Thanks

Good Afternoon, What a wonderful site!!! Many thanks for all the hours of work you have given! I was happy to have found the marker of my GG Aunt Molly Kennedy Ryan from the cemetery of the Sacred Heart Church. I am looking for her ancestors, Joseph Kennedy and Johanna McGrath were her parents. I believe she had a sister Catherine who married Peter Kennedy.
Yes a Kennedy married a Kennedy could it get more confusing? I believe surely some of Joseph's relatives immigrated but I have no record of that. If anyone has any information I would be most appreciative. My email is

The family lived in the Gundagai/Wagga Wagga/Adelong/Tumut and surrounding districts for many years. I am interested in any information on the Manns family. Emily Maria Frances Manns(nee Organ) was the daughter of Thomas Organ and Honoriah McNamara - I have been searching for a death/burial for Honoria, she remarried to Arthur Mcconnell(at Wagga) after the death of Thomas and Arthur also predeceased her. I have not been able to
find a death index for Honoria under Mcconnell, Organ or Mcnamara and would be interested if anyone has information regarding her. She was the daughter of Bryan Mcnamara and Mary Reddy who also lived in the Wagga area. Would it be possible to put my queries on your family interests site - if you need me to give you more information or clarify any of it please let me

Hi Sue & Mike,
 You are indeed a kindred spirits. I love your site especially the photos of churches, in particular Glendalough. For my honours at uni I'm going to researching the early Irish church, so we've visted many abbeys, churches and monastic sites in the UK and Ireland. Glendalough, Iona and the Rock of Cashel remain the favourites.  I've just come back from Ireland for the second time this year. In the process of ancestor hunting (McKimm/McKim, Leggett/Liggett and Hall) in Co Tyrone we visited and have photos of the Church of Ireland churches of Derrygortrevy, Newtownsaville and Clogher Cathedral. We were fortunate to find the grave of my g-g-grandparents in Newtownsaville and the church in Derrygortrevy where my g-great grandparents married in 1855. Many other family members are buried in these three churchyards, however headstones no longer exist. I would love to find any other McKim(m) family members.  We also had a trip to Ireland in 2004 during which time we hunted for my Gavin ancestors in Co Tipperary. We found the site of the thatched chapel in which one of my ancestors was baptised in Clonmel in 1821. It was outside the town walls in Irishtown and there is now a very impressive Catholic church on the site. His father was a convict transported to Australia in 1820. Maybe if any of your readers are associated with Gavin (Gavans, Galvins), Hogan or Fahey families in or around Clonmel, they might like to contact me.

My Great Grandfather Joseph James Lyons married (1899) Barbara Ellen Burgun, they had two boys Charles and Joseph. To date I'm unable to find out any information on Joseph and Barbara and the mystery thickens as the two boys Charles and Joseph were raised by the Burgun.

I noticed an Errol Flynn had transcribed a lot of headstones in Killaldriffe but didn't find mine and I didn't see an email for him.

James Hanrahan married to Alice Dooley Hanrahan and any children they may have had. My Great Grandmother was Ellen (Nellie) Hanrahan born in Ballydreid, Cahir, Tipperary in February 1862. The only other name I know is a possible sister older than Ellen named Bridget.

I have details on descendants of Arthur Thomas POWELL b.1862 & Winifred Agnes BLAKE b.1869 (who was raised by her grand-father Dr I M BLAKE) but not a lot on her parents Augustine John BLAKE & Maria Beatrice O'BRIEN or the Doctor's family and previous connections at Prospect Hill, Galway. List of Medical Practitioners published in The Australian 4 November 1842 p4 shows (unearthed by research on Dr Thomas M PERROTT of Jamberoo NSW) shows Dr Isadore Maurice BLAKE at Campbell Town (sic) NSW. If Helen Blake is still researching please contact me!Other Irish challenge is Elizabeth/Eliza Gibson b.1821 or 1822 in Ulster or Belfast to John Gibson, she m.Samuel Cornwell 1842 in Sydney NSW d.1910 and interred in CORNWELL Family Vault at Gore Hill Cemetery, Sydney.

A very readable site- many thanks for all the work. I've discovered ancestors who lived in Adelong in the 1850s. John HORAN was married to Ann LENEHAN at Liverpool but they had twins born in Adelong in 1858. Ann came to Australia as the wife of Thomas KELLY and mother of Patrick but later married John as a widow. I suspect we may be related to the many Lenehans I've seen from Tumut. I'd love to know if anyone has any further history of Lenehans, especially if they are from Co Roscommon.

Found this site on my Optus search. Am looking for cousins in New South Wales. Children of Mabel, Nellie and William Lawrance,whose parents were William and Ada Lawrance, who lived in Redfern from about 1912 to 1927, or thereabouts. I believe that Mabel married Joseph C Ewer (known as Clyde), in about 1918, and Nellie married John H N Robinson (known as Harold) in about 1914. Would love to find their children and grandchildren, as i have a wonderful family history to share, including several baroncies.

Great Site!!! Worth many visits; I was particularly interested in the Boorowa area as I have a Death Certifice for LAWRENCE CONNELL born c. 1840 which said he was born there but no BMD records available. He is really lost as while I have his wife and descendants I don't have any parents or siblings for him. Does anyone have a LAWRENCE CONNELL floating around in their line? Would love to hear from you. He married in 1871 in Young so must have been around the area for a while.

Hi! My discovery of and first visit to your site was full of recent nostalgia for me, as my family and I lived in Tumbarumba for four wonderful years, leaving only 19 months ago. My husband John was the local Anglican Priest at St Jude's Anglican Church, with oversight for the centres of Rosewood, Mundaroo, Tooma, Ournie and also Batlow and Wondalga churches. I found metnion of various clergy in the notices interesting and am fascinated by the history of the Various churches and parishes in the area. Do you have any information on these? THank you for satisfying my curiosity and giving me a wonderful nostalgic trip back in time. Tumbarumba may be advertised as a town bypassed by the appearance of modern times, but your website is evidence of the dynamic and strong community spirit we found enhanced the antural beauty and location of the town while we were priveleged to live among you for four special years. love, Jan Stead

Excellent work, congratulations, we can all aspire to do as well. I'm currently writing my second family history book and it is based on the Bendeich family tree and the stories of that family. The family tree includes many of German origin including Ernst, Brunner, Holz, Kauflein, Bauer etc. and I've tracked down a majority of the Bendeich names in Germany, USA, NZ,Indonesia and Australia. But I have been missing one grand lady by the name of Rosetta Bendeich born 14.12.1879 died 4.6.1939. Rosetta's parents were Francis Anthony Bendeich and Susannah McGuire from Gladestone Qld. The story is that Rosetta fell in love with a chinese chap and fell pregnant and was sent back to NSW, her son apparently lived in Brisbane, Rosetta I have traced to Inverell and Singleton and then she disappeared. Just this week on another web site I find she was buried in Boorawa in 1939. I have no idea why she would be buried there or the missing years between 1917 and 1939. If anyon! e has an idea I would appreciate a chat. Once again a great web site.

Enjoyed looking through your site. I am searching for by great-great grandparents who I believe lived in Tipperary. My great-great grandfather was John Butler, born 1803 in Tipperary county. He came to Canada and married Ann Clark in 1835. He died in 1867. He was suppose to be one of three brothers who left Ireland. My grandfather to Canada, one to US and one to Australia but have not been able to find any information. Any help would be appreciated. Elaine Stone

Impressive site! I would like to thank and congratulate you on the massive amount of work you've done on your site. I' am researching my mothers family (Colls, Vaughn, Beveridge, Nelson) back into Australia. They landed in the Bathurst and Yass region. Almost all came from England and some even are First Fleeters. Also quite some family members having moved to Australia ages ago. The work you've done on the extracts from the newspaper and on the Cemeteries is just incredible! I have found some information on the Colls and Beveridge I did not have in my database before. If anyone reading this has information on the Clegg and Beveridge line that married into the family of Thomas Colls please contact me. Specially if you know anything about the family of John Smeil "Jolan" Beveridge and his wife Mary Jane Colls

They returned to Lettermore Co Galway Ireland the following year but my Grandfather's two sisters Agnes OToole and Sarah OToole both remained and as far as I know one of them at least had a family. She was married once to a hotelier but was widowed and remarrried perhaps to a member of Parliament. Can anyone help with info? Joe O'Toole

From the transcription of the headstones of the Tumbarumba Cemetery, I was able to fill in a little more missing info - thank you. I also found the Extracts from the Tumbarumba Times very interesting. I would like to advise that I am co-ordinating the Reunion for the Family of John & Rebecca Doughty which will be held at Easter 2003 (19th & 20th April) at Tumbarumba NSW. We will be celebrating the 150th annivers ary of their arrival in Australia. They came from Terrington St Clement, Norfolk, England arriving in Sydney on 10th March 1853 on the "Trafalgar". John & Rebecca had 8 children, 5 of whom married & had children & it is these families that we would like to see at our reunion. If you have any questions or would like to help, please email me.

What a lot of work you've put in. You're to be commended. I actually got here after a google search on Wee Jasper, was looking for the Vaughan/Martin connections but located my fathers side (Jones) instead. Well not sure its them in fact as there are 3 Charles & Elizabeth Jones around about the same time in Yass. Mine are the family of butchers, although my grandad was the odd one out becoming a tailor instead. Great work a very good notion to put the cemetary online.

A very interesting site & obviously the result of a lot of hard work I am trying to trace an ancestor Patrick Murray born in 1802 or 1806 at Muff/Kingscourt/Cavan/Ireland. Note some of the documents show him as Carlow rather than Cavan. He was married and had two children. His father's name may have been William or Thomas. He received a life sentence, was transported as a convict and arrived in NSW in April 1832 on Captain Cook -1st voyage. There were no females on his voyage. I do not know whether his wife and children followed him to Australia. He worked for J Kennedy in Appin. He appears in a muster of 1837. He received various tickets of leave and finally, in 1851, a conditional pardon which meant he was free provided he remained in NSW. At that time he was in Yass I cannot trace his death certificate in NSW although I still have to examine those that would have made him 80+ at his death. I also have to try to examine death certs for Queensland. I have not been able to find him in any online cemetry. Indeed I have been surprised at the small number of Murrays appearing in the online cemetry lists. Mr Graeme Challinor does list some Murrays. However none of them is "Patrick" and therefore not my ancestor. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

Hi, I love your site. The photos and background are great. I hit on your site while searching for Wilbraham Tollemache Edwards who is mentioned in the October 1796 will of John Edwards of Devonshire. He was John Edwards nephew, son of his brother, Thomas. I suspect that he is the Brigadier mentioned on your Manaro Mercury page. I am looking for more information on this family and would be thrilled if anyone could let me know the name of Wilbraham's mother. Maureen

Great site!! Was searching for my grandfather, William Maher, but nothing seems to be my luck in this regard. Family stories have him leaving Ireland "under cover of darkness." He ended up in Omaha, Nebraska and married my grandmother, Catherine McShane, who was originally from Crossmaglen, County Armagh. I've been very successful with the McShane line but the Mahers are a definite brick wall. Keep up the grand work!

Lowry from Annfield, Breen from Ballypatrick and Long's from Dovea. My grgrgrandfather was Wm Lowry from Annfield, who had 7 children. One Jeremiah was my GreatGrandfather, The other one was William who died when he was 18. of the other 5 we have no records. Michael, Patrick, and Martin, Bridget and Mary. We have all the Long's records but have no records of the Breens. We think the Lowry's went to NSW. My greatgrandfather went to Australia in 1859 and returned in the 1860's with lots of money and bought a big farm in Gorteenafoora, Drombane. Mary

Thank you for such a valuable site. Many of my ancestors (Smith, Hollingsworth, Beeton, White) lived in the Yass area so I was able to find some information. I am looking for any information on the Beeton family which lived in Brown Street, Yass. Keep up the good work.

Absolutely fantastic site! I grew up in Tumblong & my father still lives there. I have given him a copy of the cemetary list so that he can record a brief history about those he remembers (which is quite a few). In a small place like Tumblong it is priceless history. Thankyou for the opportunity to be able to expand on your wonderful research.

Wow,VERY impressive!! We are new Bowning residents so can't claim relationship but have been trying to find out the origin of the name Bowning - not even the local Historical Society knows where it came from. An old lady told me yesterday she recalls it was pronounced 'Bounyan' - or could it be 'Gounyan' - if anyone has any info I'd be grateful.

It is so wonderful to see someone else take the time to bring them to us. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH ! I am researching my family of McSurdy's.

Thank You for any help that you may provide for me. Surnames Are: McSurdy,MacSurdy,McCurdy or McKirdy. Keep up the Good work on this site! ~Deb~

Hi Sue and Mike I have just stumbled on to your site, and haven't had time to have a good look at it today, but I'll bookmark it and get back to it. I am very interested in all the early Irish families who settled in Gundagai. My husband is related or descended to the CARRIGG, LYNCH, PIERSE, O'BRIEN families of Gundagai. I am also interested in the KEANE, CAREY, KEIHONE and LENEHAN (and others) families. My father's family, the JONES family were at Goulburn by 1844 then Boorowa by the 1850s. Has anyone ever heard of a JOHN TRAINOR JONES (My elusive great grandfather). I am almost tearing my hair out because I cannot find out where he ended up. He was alive circa 1851 when his youngest daughter was born in Boorowa, but he seemed to have disappeared after that. Some of his children were baptised Catholics by Father Chalres Lovat at Boorowa so I am presuming he had an Irish background. His wife was Protestant. I am also looking for descendants of victims and survivors of the 1852 Gundagai Flood. We are commemorating the 150th anniversary of this flood next year and our Committee would like to find out as much genealogical detail on the residents of Old Gundagai in 1852. Two of the girls who drowned, Ann Farrell and Honoria Jones, were in the party of Irish Orphan girls from the "Arbuthnot" who came to the Yass-Jugiong-Coolac-Gundagai-Tumut area in 1850 (see the book "A Decent Set of Girls" by Richard Reid and Cheryl Mongan). Look forward to exploring this website in greater detail. It looks great the little I have seen of it! from Marcia McIntyre of Gundagai.

Am researching family back into Ireland (Griffin - Tipperary {with GREAT difficulty!}; Butler - Cork), with some elements having moved to Australia years ago, as well as my Sis who now resides in Adelaide. Anyway, if ANYONE out there has any info on a Peter Griffin of Tipperary (born possibly approx 1840, son John Peter (b. 1867-ish), 2 daughters - one Ellen (Nell), the other a Catholic nun in Bristol (Christian name not known), please, please, please get in touch!

TERRIFIC SITE!! Just wanted to Thank and Congratulate you on the massive amount of work you've done on your site! You can be sure it is in my favorites! The work you've done on the Cemeteries is just incredible--I even found a Hogan or two--not sure yet if they are ours, but I'll know to come back here once I identify "our Hogan". thanks again!

Wonderful site! It must have taken a great deal of time and work. I didn't find my family, but that is nothing new for me. If you ever do the Fenner Cemetery near Gortnahoe, Co. Tipperary, maybe I will get lucky!
