Anna Maria BELL
My 2 x gggmother Anna Maria BELL b. 1836, County Cork, Ireland, immigrated to South Australia in 1855.
I am unable to find a Birth certificate for her in Ireland.
She married twice in South Australia.
On her 1st marriage certificate to frederick Parker, she gives her father as Patrick Bell.
On her 2nd marriage certificate to Peter Handrakin she gives her father as George BELL.
She was widowed twice and had 11 children, all in South Australia.
I beleive she came out to Aust in the ship 'Australia' in 1855 with a companion at aged 19 years.
I have been unable to find her in SA passenger lists. I have been told it could be that Port Adelaide was not the first port of call for that ship, as that could be why I cannot find her name there.
