Welcome Hereweir.

This may be Ellen's birth.

Name: Ellen Frances OBRIEN.
Born: 1877 in Carlton, Victoria.
Father: Cornelius Francis OBRIEN.
Mother: Elizabeth Agnes HEALEY.
Ref: Victorian Birth Index #13688.

Ellen's death in Coffs Harbour in 1938 named her parents as Cornelius and Annie. Informants often gave the wrong mother's name.

I noticed Andrew was recorded as Andrew DISCLIER when he married Ellen in 1884, but he is recorded as DISCHER for the births of his four children.

If you can give a few names of the O'BRIENS you are looking for in Ballarat they should not be hard to find.
