I research the Grehan family. I am looking for a Joseph Francis Grehan. His father is Patrick Grehan (he was a convict from Ireland). Wondering if your Grehan family has a connection with my Grehan family. When I was at Karori Cemetery I found the Grehan plots. As my Taylor family is buried there. Also my Taylors were the undertakers in Karori. Do you know if there was a connection between your Grehans and my Taylors at that time? As my Grandfather used to talk about the Grehans. My connection with the Grehan family is my Great Great Grandmother was Mary Grehan and she married Robert Taylor. Wondering if we have a connection? Where was your Francis Joseph Grehan born? Do you know his parents?
