BOYLE, GALLAGHER of Donegal, Ireland

Query by joolz18

Hi, looking for any information on James Boyle or his wife Mary Gallagher. They had three daughters, Catherine (known as Kate or Kitty), Bridget and Mary. There may have been a son, James also. James Boyles father could have been a Patrick Boyle. James Boyle died young from being hit by a train. His wife Mary also died young. The three daughters were separated, with Catherine going to Scotland where she entered into service in the Cathcart region. Any information or suggested paths to follow would be great.

Hi,
I am seeking a Mary Boyle (or O'Boyle depending on where I look), apparently an orphan from Newry or Galway Ireland. I have her story from the time she married a Thomas Matthews in Melbourne 1852 & went on to live in Tallangatta Valley Victoria Australia until her death in 1900. I stumbled across a site on Irish Orphans to Australia that does list a few Boyle children. One source said that my Mary's parents were shopkeepers in Newry.
Lady Kennaway Arrived 6 December 1848 in Port Philip with 4 Boyle orphans
