My 3x Great Grandmother was Margaret Gearon. She was born about 1859. Her parents were John Gearon and Mary Nagle. From Tiperrary, Ireland. Margaret had a sister Mary Jane Gearon, born about 1861.

In 1878 Margaret and Mary Jane boarded the Carnatic in London and sailed to Queensland, Australia as assisted immigrants.

Mary Jane met Robert Stubbings and they married in Springsure, Queensland in 1879. They had 4 children in Queensland, before moving to New Zealand.
Their children were:
Robert James Stubbings, born 1886
Margaret Winifield, born 1882, mar James Murphy in 1910, NZ

Emma,born 1880.

Margaret moved to New Zealand before 1883. She married Thomas Cannon in 1883, in Masterton, NZ. She died in 1914, Petone, NZ.
Thomas was born about 1856 in Donegal, Ireland. He immigrated to NZ from Donegal in 1877 aboard the Hermione. His parents were Thomas Cannon and Ellen Kerr.He died in 1894, Wellington.
