Ellen Moroney fifth child of James & Margaret Moroney of Bansha, Tipperary, Ireland
Details for the Moroney family have been very difficult to find. Believe that James Moroney was a farmer and could have died abt 1850. Four of his children emigrated to Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
Cannot find the name of the ship that Johanna travelled to Australia or her year of arrival.
The two sisters, Ellen & Johanna eventually made their way to Newcastle, which is 100 miles north of Sydney. Their occupation was listed as servants. Eventually married in Newcastle. Johanna & James Campbell had eight children, as did Ellen & Phillip Phillips.
