Catherine FOX & Thomas SMITH, Burrowa NSW

Journal by shoshana

My search startes with a marriage certificate for Catherine Fox & Thomas Samuel Smith that is dated 10-March-1862 and his from the District Registry Office of Burrowa in NSW.

I am looking for information on Catherine and Thomas and their parents.

Thomas lists his father as Thomas Samuel Smith & his mother as Elizabeth Norman.

Catherine's parents are listed as John Fox & Bridget Meally (O'Malley).

I know from futher research that Bridget is the daughter of John O'Malley & Nappe Davitt of County Mayo Ireland. Bridget along with serval other of her brothers & sisters migrated or was transported to Australia.

Please be in touch is these people sound familar to you.
