Thanks Val.

The system does that at odd times.

I didn't have any of that. It's a branch I've not followed until now. I'm working on 'L' in my tree picking up on what was missed last time around.

Marriage to Wylie was her 2nd.

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933) - Friday 7 May 1886 p.1
MARRIAGES
HALLIGAN - LYONS.-On the 28th April, at St. Stephen's Cathedral, by the Rev. D. Fouhy, John Halligan, to Elizabeth, eldest daughter of the late William Lyons, both of Brisbane.

Death 21 Jul 1886/B19065 Halligan John - Patrick Halligan - Hannah Matilda Cummings

1885 B17958 William Lyons Daniel Lyons Elizabeth Sullivan

1876 C313 William Lyons - - ** born Ireland aged 45 years



1859 B208 Margaret Dwyer - William Lyons
