Re: Bridget KEATING

Thanks. :)

The age at death for John fits the age 23 in 1857.

We know he is a brother of Patrick who arrived in 1874. The place of death for that Patrick I think is 1876 and it lists his origin as a place in southern Sligo despite 1874 shipping record saying Armagh.

The birth for Bridget in #1 is the wrong one. I think the 1874 Bridget must be the right one although it does not say brother John in NSW and age at death does not fit with age in 1874.

When I enter "counties of ireland" in Google it gives me Troy, NY, USA. :rolleyes:

Re: Bridget KEATING

Patrick and Bridget 1874, declared their parents were dead, if John in Hoskinstown was Patrick's brother, *John and Catherine must be relatives and not parents...

Edit: *John and Catherine who died 1911 and 1916

Re: Bridget KEATING

Thanks Geoff.

I have not managed to read it yet but that is the line for Catherine with her parents and relations in colony.

John should be the line above.
