Looking for info on James McGee circa 1802 Kilsaren Ireland - 19 July 1853 New Zealand
James was on the Ship Rattlesnake arriving in Russell i think in 1838 in his company were his wife Anne (nee McCartney)1808-april 1889 3 sons Joseph (my line)1831-1901, Richard 1835-1916 and Owen-Curran 1837-1920. They traveled to an area that was named Auckland on their arrival. They were on the ship Anna Watson that arrived 3 days after the ship the Platina. The very first settlers in those two ships in Auckland harbour.
I would love to have more info on James and his sons. I cannot find anything on Owen Curran McGee just that he had a large family. I would love some more photos. I only have one Of Richard and his bride that was taken in Australia at some stage.

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.
