AUSTRALIA NSW & QLD: Looking for connections with Catherine Mary CANTWELL and John GORDON
John GORDON (Snr) married Catherine Mary CANTWELL* abt 1859 and they had at least one known child, John Francis GORDON (Jnr) born 25/7/1860 Picton NSW Australia, died 29/8/1924 aged 64 years. Both sets of parents' names unknown at this stage.
*Catherine Mary CANTWELL was somehow related to my ancestor Patrick CANTWELL (gg grandfather) 1827-1875 who was a former coalminer in Clough, Co.Kilkenny, Ireland and emigrated to Australia in 1851 with other family members aboard the 'Garland'. They followed James CANTWELL 1797-1857 who was previously transported to Australia in 1834 aboard ship 'James Laing'. His son, Patrick CANTWELL was a goldminer and may have been in QLD perhaps say 1851-1853. [More info available.]
