Looking for Killeen, Australia

Query by Jimkelton

Mary Ann Killeen, c.1847, married (?) Michael Gallagher (a tailor).

Mary Ann Killeen was living in Parramatta in 1847 where they had a child, also Michael (Gallagher)who died in Tenterfield, NSW Australia in 1914 aged 67 - NSW BDM death cert states a Charles Wright as Michael Junior's nephew.

Michael junior married a Jane Morgan at Tenterfield in 1892.

Michael and Jane had a daughter, Gertie May Gallagher in 1904 - my Grandmother.

Gertie May Gallagher married Charles Finn at Tenterfield in 1921.

Kevin James Finn (my father) was born 11th January 1932 at Tenterfield, NSW, Australia

Trying to establish their family origins and in particular where Mary Ann Killeen (and Michael Gallagher) came from, whether a convict or free person with the assumption that they both had Irish ancestry.

The Gallagher name is very common in the early history of Tenterfield, New South Wales, Austrlia.

Cant find any trace in NSW BDM records for marriage, death or baptism for Mary Ann Gallagher (nee Killeen) or Michael Gallagher even though we know Mary Ann's death must have been post 1847 and probably Michael her husband, too(?).

Can anyone help please?

Hullo Jason

Not sure if you saw my recent posting on Ancestry.com re my Gallagher / Finn family connections ?

I read a message there from a Paul Gallagher - must be your relative ?

Gertrude May Finn (nee Gallagher), known as May, was my grandmother so I guess we are cousins ?

I responded to Paul's message with some details that I have on my Gallagher and Finn family connections. If you cant find this you can email me direct, jim.kelton@harboursat.com.au.

I am still trying to sort out what appears to be a geneaology nightmare.

If you are related to the Finns then you have heaps of living relatives.

Look forward to hearing from you.
