GALLAGHER - O'DONNELL married about 1885 - probably County Tyrone

Journal by ngairedith

All I know is that John Gallagher was a 'mill worker' in County Tyrone and that he married Catherine O'Donnell
- they had 9 children.
The first child born about 1885 and the last about 1896

They emigrated to New Zealand between 1910-1920 but I cannot find any ship passenger lists after the 1800s - do you know where I can look for these?

They went to the West Coast of the South Island as Catherine had a sister already there

A son, Patrick Gallagher, married Kathleen Kearney in Christchurch and had his 2 children in the South Island

Eventually all the 'children' of John and Catherine settled in the North Island, mostly around the Wellington area.

Any information on these people would be greatly appreciated.
