scantwell on Family Tree Circles
Journals and Posts
John REARDON turned up on an Affidavit amongst some Probate papers of my husbands ancestor. My husband's great great grandmother Mary Reardon had married twice: 1st Cantwell; 2nd McFall. The Affidavit was amongst the papers of the 2nd husband. Although it mentions that he lived with his family at Byrne Street, South Melbourne, it did not list who his wife or children were. There were so many John Reardon's around Melbourne at this time (1867) that it has been hard to find which one he was. I have managed to track him to 1899 where he was still listed as a Stereotyper as John Reardon Senior of 11 Stewart Street, Richmond.
I am looking for Michael Francis Cantwell born 1879 to William Cantwell and Winifred Stephenson/Stevenson in Greendale. They moved to Terang around 1900. The last documented evidence was in the 1903 Victorian Electoral Rolls in the Corangamite district. Seems to have disappeared after that. Was said to have died during the WW1 years but definitely did not sign up. Could possibly have gone overseas.
Most of the research has already been done by other Cantwell researchers. I am trying to find more information on John Cantwell who died on Long Island, New York, USA around 1859. John's wife Mary immigrated to Australia with son William after the death of daughter Catherine and husband John, both died in New York. William married Winifred Stephenson in Gordon near Ballarat and had 15 children with 13 surviving to adult.
