I have found so far that thomas and john strong(brothers) were tried and convicted of assaulting a habitat of lisduff along with maher and darby they were transported to tasmania 1850 on board the hydrabad.
Thomas went on to marry bridget maloney and they lived in the cygnet area, his brother did not marry but had a child (FEMALE)
Thomas paid for his mother mary strong to come to tasmania in 1855 she came out on the ship australasia, mary died abt 1870 john her other son was informant on death cert.
We are having a lot of trouble trying to find out where they were actually from at this stage some think it was tullamore ireland but we cannot find anything on them as yet.
I have also found more info on my donaghers, emma being my grandmother who married alfred latham, in franklin tasmania i am still having trouble locating a birth cert for her but her brothers charles and james refer to her as nok in their war enlistments.
Charles was in ww1 and while in england married emily luton they had 1 daughter named theodora they came back to australia and lived in victoria,for some reason charles went to qld, emily is buried at faulkner cemetry vic and her daughter married robert brehaut and they are also buried at faulkner.
Charles aslo lied about his age and enlisted for ww2 he enlisted in qld and when he returned he had a farm at coreen qld he was a keen bowler at yepoon qld he died 1964 and is buried at yepoon cemetry.
James the other brother enlisted for ww1 and unfortunatly he was killed in 1915 at war.
I am still trying to find info on emma my grandmother as i have nothing to say she is a daughter of sarah and james donagher, on her marriage cert she says they are her parents, and like i said her brothers refer to her as their sister all other researches i have found doing this family also have nothing to say emma cecelia donagher is a child of sara and james donagher.
I had thought my john latham of franklin tasmania had come from porlock somerset, but i found way back that its not right he came from birmingham england, i now have all the correct details of john and mary latham.
Nicholas Blackaby married Susan Johnson, she was born 1894 Deloraine Tasmania.
I am trying to locate the exact burial spot of some of my ancestors, i know from newspaper clippings they were buried at the catholic cemetry in cygnet Tasmania.
I have contacted the local priest who could not tell me, he suggested i try the catholic church in Hobart, still no luck i contacted the council they dont have records either.I also contacted the funeral directors and they have never bothered to answer me back My aunts/uncles have told me they went to some of these funerals at the cemetry, i did find out that there was an accident years back with a truck which destroyed a row of headstones this is where we think my ancestors are buried. We have searched and searched but can find nothing. Would anyone know how i can try and get records of their actual burial spots. Thank-you......Kaye
