Gaffney of County Cavan, Ireland.

I have traced my GGG Grandmother Catherine Gaffney back County Cavan in Ireland. Catherine arrived with her sister Bridget in NSW 1849 on the ship "Digby". Theses girls were "potato famine orphans" and were part of the assistant imigrant scheme. Some of these girls stayed at the Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney, where there is now a memorial to honour the Irish famine orpahans.I would love to find information about what these girls did soon after their arrival until the time of their marriage.Catherine married Felix Mcloughlin. Fortunately the shipping records gave a lot of information and the girls parents were James Gaffney and (Bessy)Elizabeth Murphy from Butlers Bridge,County Cavan,Ireland. I would also like to find more information about James and Bessy. For more information on the Irish Famine Orphans the web site is
