Casey's of Lismore/Coraki/Swan Bay Australia
Margaret Casey was born May 1911 in Swan Bay NSW. She was my grandmother.
Margaret died on the 26/10/1982 and was buried on the 27/10/1982 at Macquarie Park Cemetery and Crematorium. Roman Catholic Lawn, Block 14, Position 0623.
Margaret was a wise lady who took care of all the family's needs ahead of her own. She was a great baker of cakes, cookies etc. She was also a woman who knew her own mind.
I still miss her 20 odd years later. Margaret was also very frugal, to the point that she planned her own funeral and asked the funeral directer if it really was necessary to have handles on her casket!
Margaret married Stuart Rogerson at St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney, NSW, Australia on the 18th february 1939. Prior to her marriage, Margaret was a nursing sister, Stuart a tram driver. Margaret was one of seven children.
My research indicates she was the daughter of Thomas Casey and Mary Nolan, however I have not yet proven this.
If anyone has information on this family, I would love to hear from you.
