Journals and Posts
Big thank you to Alison Lyons for pointing in the right direction. Thanks to her I am now in touch with long lost cousins, that haven't seen since childhood. We keep in touch regularly. Wonderful feeling this having extended family.
I'm, trying to write the different stories down.
Still would like to hear from the CONELIUS (Dorothy May HYEM their mother)
Seeking knowledge of Thomas Farrington. His son William Farrington was born 1833, and apparently Thomas died within the next couple of years. Have not been able to ascertain actual date of death. Would like to know what happened and when. Was he related to the Farringtons of Chorley, England??? What career was he, were there siblings?
Any info would be appreciated.
Great-grandnan Margaret Moore, who's death certificate says born in Belfast, Ireland. No amount of searching has found where she was born - maybe because McCloskey was spelt a different way. She travelled to Australia on KATE in 1855 and married William Farrington in 1860 at Sofala, NSW.
Does anyone have knowledge of above people. Were there siblings?
Would appreciate any help in this search.

If you are related would loe to hear from you, I am compiling the tree for my 2 sons & 2 grandsons.and now of course for my first granddaughter born 2011
AM trying to find relatives and or people who know how William & Margaret met.
Margaret was daughter of Charles Moore, Church of England missionary, and Margaret McCloskey. It is said the young Margaret was born in Belfast, Ireland about 1836-1839.
Have been given wonderful information as to how William came to Australia now would love to find out more.
Margaret Moore immigrated to Australia in 1855, her father was CHARLES MOORE & her mother MARGARET. It seems that Margaret had a sister called Rose Ellen and that was why Margaret came out to Australia.
Margaret married William Farrington in Sofala in 1860. They had 10 children, the first 5 died from childhood illness in 1876. William was a gold miner and died from (gallstones). Margaret eventually moved to Sydney and she died in 1927.
Margaret & William, married in Sofala lost 5 children to diptheria and 1 survivor called Albert.Margaret & William are the parents of my grandmother Marion Elizabeth who married Pearl Walter HYEM.
Any descendants of these family, I would love to hear from you and as I have no photos or family stories would also be great.
