Looking for Edmund Foley 1811-1884
Edmund married Winifred O,Shaughnessy 1813-1861 Her father was John. Not sure if thats the way their name was spelt. A relative thought that the premier of Australia in the 1800s was her father, but the dates dont fit so it could be her brother? That does fit, Edmund and Winifred had 7 children, Mary-Ann ( My line)James, Dennis, Thomas, Edward, John, Micheal. Mary Ann married Joseph Mcgee in 1854, not sure if the marriage survived or what happened, Mary Ann applied for a pension in 1896 in Dargaville and again in 1899 in Mangawhare. At some stage Mary Ann moved to Auckland and lived with her daughter Mary Josephine Robinson where she died in 1914.From the wises directory I have the Robinsons living at 63 Franklin Rd Ponsonby in 1914 in the house was Mary , Mary Ann, Edmund James , Thomas also a Albt Wltr Robinson which I presume was the head of the house a Albert Walter Robinson. In the wises directory of 1919 it is only Mary living there. I would love to know what happen in the missing years. Also if there are many descendants around to see if they have old photos.

I am 53 have been doing family research for about 10yrs now off and on. I work as a caregiver working with the elderly. I have an beautiful 18 yr old daughter. I love scrap booking and got into this so i could hopefully find other photos of ancestors. I have been very successful at this and now have 2 large family albums of both parents lines. There is only a few i would like to get.
