Dear Larraine, Firstly, a warm welcome...
James KEOWN died aged 84 years 1903 (so born 1819) Tumut, New South Wales, Australia. Registration No. 8092/1903 Father's name not given. Mother's name not given. SOURCE: NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. Possible marriages NSW Bridget EGAN and/or Mary ROSEWARN.
More information may be available from Death Certificate.
A search of the National Archives of Australia revealed no records for your James KEOWN.
Ditto for State Records Office of NSW.
But I found this, Irish Famine Orphans. Mentions marriage of a James KEOWN to Bridget EGAN in 1866, 5 children.

Hoping that I've been of some assistance to you.
PS Make sure your surnames are separated by commas at the bottom of each journal or they will be a jumbled mess. Tip: You can edit your journals.
