Baker/Mooney family from Bundarra and Newcastle, NSWSince

Since researching the Baker/ family I have gone back to days when convicts came in to Sydney, Australia. I discovered that William Bake(a Convict ) for stealing (two silver spoons ) convicted at London, Middlesex, England and transported and , came in on the 2nd Fleet about 1790 , in years later he was pardoned and given land at Windsor , there he married Sarah Draper ( another convict ) No. 52 list came in on the Britannia ship - convicted in Court of St. James 10-1-1798.
Arrived Port Jackson, Tuesday 17th July,1801 -Married William Baker on Sunday 18-11-01.
The list goes on - could anyone else tell me the full story about the Baker Family from Bundarra, for instance what were their occupations?
I'd be interested in hearing the story about the place they call "Laura" also, in the 20th Century in my G/Mothers time and others does anyone have some Old Photos - copies please they'd like to share with me for my "Family Book" about our Ancestors' - I'd be glad to pay for "Costs" copies.
Also like to hear and receive news from others about the 2010 Reunion of Baker Clan. All this with your permission.
Thank you in anticipation.
Hoping for some replies. Regards Sheilagh

Looking for parents and grandparents names of Alan John Mooney of Bundarra. N.S.W married 1903.Ii

Looking for information about my grandfathers parents names - and also their grandparents names, please. Anyone who has any information, please contact me, as I'am researching the family history of the Mooney family. Alan John Mooney was born , I think about Sept, 1878 - possible somewhere near Bundarra ? Does anyone know if the family originally came from Ireland - if you have information, please let me know - and possibly the name of County, where the original family came from.
Regards, Sheilagh La Greca

Looking for parents names of Vida Christina Mooney (nee Baker ) from Tingha. N.S.W.

I'am the grandaugher of Vida Christina born about 1882 - married Alan John Mooney. First son was my father Allan David Mooney. My maiden name was Sheilagh Mooney. Allan David Mooney was my father. He was born in Tingha. N.S.W. on 4th March, 1905. I'am just starting to reseach my family history.

My Grandparents had 8 children, they lived at Waratah, Newcastle and in their retirement years, they lived at Killaben Bay. Lake Macquarie. N.S.W.
My father was a builder in Newcastle, N.S.W and he had a nickname of Blue Mooney.
Would love to hear from relatives of Vida Christina Mooney (nee Baker ) and Alan John Mooney - who, might be able to help me in my research about my family.
