Thomas & Mary Rowan & family to Australia on Dacca 1890

Thomas Rowan & wife Mary (Carey) emigrated to Australia from Dunoon in Scotland on the "Dacca" in 1890. The "Dacca" sank in the Red Sea and the family continued their journey on the "Taroba" to Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Children in order are: Mary (b 1877), Elizabeth Rebecca (1878), Thomas (1881), Margaret (1886), Sarah Ann (1888) and John (1892,Brisbane). I have tracked the marriages of all the girls, but cannot identify who Thomas and John married and when.

Thomas Rowan (the father) was born in Colraine, Derry, Ireland in 1846. His father is Robert Rowan and mother is Matilda McIlvany (no known dates).

Any help in finding descendants or ancestors would be greatly appreciated.
