Looking for info on Alice Eliza Brown-Jolly. Married to Rheuben Swan at some point. She was born about 1884, not sure where or in what country. Possibly Tasmania (where Rheuben from) or England. Not sure if Brown is her maiden name and Jolly a stepfathers name or some one else she married. But she died 26 Nov 1940 in Canberra ACT Australia under the name of Alice Eliza Will or Wills.
My grandmother grew up believing this woman was her paternal grandmother. She was raised by Alice when her parents died untill she was 16yo when Alice died.
I have come to a blank with her and rheuban.
From the info l have found recently Rheuban is not my grandmothers father as we thought but her uncle.
Any help or ideas would be great.
Patrick was born about 1821-24 depanding on what records you go by. He was transported to Van Demons Land (Tasmania, Austraila)in 1849 then aged 27,for steeling.His convict records state he was married with one child when he left Dublin. His wife in Ireland is believed to be Ann/e who may have died shortly before he left Ireland. His siblings were stated as Thomas Edward (a 1st & 2nd name or 2 brothers)
Eliza Mary Adelaide(this is possibly his daughter though there is no proof yet he had a daughter or a son). I would dearly love to find those left behind in Ireland and their descendants. If any of these names ring a bell in your tree email me at [email protected]
