BOYLE, GALLAGHER of Donegal, Ireland

Hi, looking for any information on James Boyle or his wife Mary Gallagher. They had three daughters, Catherine (known as Kate or Kitty), Bridget and Mary. There may have been a son, James also. James Boyles father could have been a Patrick Boyle. James Boyle died young from being hit by a train. His wife Mary also died young. The three daughters were separated, with Catherine going to Scotland where she entered into service in the Cathcart region. Any information or suggested paths to follow would be great.

Looking for HARRIS, ASHER, EDE New Zealand


I am looking for information on an illegitimate child of a Bertha Harris. Bertha was born in Nelson, New Zealand in 1884. She passed away in Auckland in 1958. Bertha was a colourful character, but appears to have borne an illegitimate child known as Tommy to a Thomas James Kumaramaoa Asher. The child appears to have been brough up until the age of 8 by his extended Maori family in the Wanganui/Pipiriki area. At this stage Bertha had married a Benjamin Ede and was living in the Wellington area. Bertha went to court to get the child back in 1912 and I lose track of the child at that point. Bertha's parents were Thomas and Florence Harris. If anyone can share or assist I would be grateful.
