He had the following children - Ellen 1836, Denis, 1843, John 1850, James 1852, Margaret 1855, Mary 1856 and Thomas 1858. On the Thomas's Birth Certificate the following children were listed as deceased - Eliza, Joseph, Michael and Robert. Margaret 1855,Mary 1856 and Thomas December 15, 1858.
Thomas was born in Maryborough, Queensland, Australia so I take it they the family immigrated to Australia prior to 1858.
Any information anyone can supply me on this family would be greatly appreciated.
