Carmel on Family Tree Circles
Journals and Posts
I am looking for information on William Riley and his wife Catherine Fitzgerald of Gooloogong. William was born in Maldon, VIC on 10.8.1859 and married Catherine in 1895. He died in 1911. I am interested in their parents also. I know William's father was James Riley born 1830 in Essex, England and his wife Bridget Tobin was born in 1834 and died in 1920. William and Catherine had 11 children.
I am looking for information on Mark Fitzgerald (b. 1841 m. 1866 in Forbes, NSW) and Annabella/Annabel Thorpe. Apparently Mark was a direct descendant of Lord Edward Fitzgerald, a renowned Irish Patriot who fought and died for the cause of "freedom for Ireland". Lord Fitzgerald's name together with another great Irishman, Michael Dwyer, is inscribed on an imposing monument in a Sydney Cemetery. Mark and Annabel had a daughter (among other children) Catherine b. 4.11.1878 at Ooma Station, d. 3.4.1962 Gooloogong NSW.
I am descended from Henry Parker and Margaret Maria Bright who marriedon 19.1.1879. I do not know much about them except that my great grandmother was their daughter: (Margaret Maria Parker b. 23.9.1883, d. 25.7.1978) Margaret Maria Parker (my great grandmother) lived in Gooloogong, NSW and I understand her parents (Henry and Margaret) were born at Penrith and Carcoar respectively.
Looking for further information on Sarah Murray who married John Joseph O'Neil on 28 February 1878 at Kirk Connell, NSW (Kirkconnell). Trying to find their parents. I know that they had a son "Michael - elder born of twins" on 5 October 1882 at Edinburgh, NSW. Where is Edinburgh? Is it a property name - as it does not exist as a town.
