My grand mother was Catherine Mary O'Leary who said she was from Woodend,Vic. I am not sure of her father or mother but another researcher has given me clues that it could be Margaret Kidd & John O'Leary.. Nanna was married to Thomas O'Neill & they had 6 children...Margaret, Michael, John,Thomas & Kevin (twins) & Francis who all grew up in Yarraville ,Vic. Can anyone help me ?

The only KIDD and OLEARY I know of from Woodend was John OLEARY and Margaret KIDD. They were married in 1880 and had six children in Woodend.
James, John, Annie, Margaret, Ellen and Catherine.

It may be the family you want.

Marriage for Catherine and Thomas.

Groom: Thomas ONEILL.
Bride: Catherine Mary OLEARY.
Year married: 1920.
Place: Victoria.

Ref: VMI #8928.

If you obtain the marriage certificate it will confirm Catherine's parents and birth place. It's worth the money in the long run.

Yes catherine mary O'Neill who referred to herself as "Kitty" was in a nursing home in Murrumbeena when she died. We used to visit her there.When her mind started to wander she used to talk about playing in the cemetary.She lived most of her adult life in Yarraville.

My great grandfather was John O'Leary (his father was John O'Leary and Margaret Kidd) He had a sister, Catherine. I have quite a lot of information on the family, including some photos if you are interested. I have never managed though to find a photo of John O'Leary (senior) or Margaret. I have recently purchased a book from Woodend "They went to War" by Sylvia Boxshall. Joseph O'Leary has a page in there dedicated to him for his service in WW1.
