Arrived 22 Sep 1866 - Reel 2484
McKERAHAN James 33 Shoe Maker - Cornavara Tyrone Ireland - John & Mary father dead Mother in New South Wales - Pres. Both Four brothers and Sister and Mother Tenterfield New England N.S.W. Good None
Ellen 24 Gen. Servt. [crossed out] - Mullenhone ? Tyrone Ireland - David ? & Fanny Curry ? Tyrone Ireland - Pres. Both

On the marriage I read her father as Daniel.

Death 1915/C04356 McKerihan Ellen - Daniel Buchanan - Ellen Corry

It's hard to follow because the family arrived on three different vessels over a 10 year period.

Only Daniel Buchanan in Tyrone in Griffiths Valuation 1860 was in Mullawinny, parish of Donacavey, Tyrone. Perhaps the crossed out word is Mullawinny? Daniel died there in 1878 aged 68:

A Buchanan family still farming there in 1901:

Yes it does look like Mullenhone or Mullenhome. Unfortunately there isn’t one in Tyrone and I can’t suggest what it might be.

Daniel who died in 1878 in Mullawinny is the only Daniel in Tyrone in Griffiths and the only Daniel Buchanan death anywhere in Ireland 1864 to 1901. He was a widower. I searched for a Frances Buchanan death 1864 to 1878 but there wasn’t one in Co. Tyrone. Suggests that if it’s the right family, she died pre 1864 (in which case there will be no record).

Thanks Elwyn.

Places of origin in these NSW Assisted Immigrant records are often incorrect - well more likely written as they were heard in lots of cases I've found when the origin is known from other sources.

I think Mullawinny is probably correct.
