Wonder if the information below will help to find Elizabeth's parents.

Taken from Elizabeth's obit it states "The daughter of John Martin, Co. Cork, Ireland, an officer of the Imperial Army, the late Mrs. Murtough came to Australia when quite a young girl.etc"

"Quiet a young girl" could mean anything, young as in she come with her parents or young as in she was young but old enough to come on her own.

Yes thanks gibbo.

Age looks ok on shipping record. If parents are John & Mary we probably have the right one.

I now have the shipping image. Parents John & Mary.

Some confusion re the name of the vessel- Lady Elna/Emma/Elina Bruce

Uncle James Hennessy Newtown Road. I won't try to trace him.

NSW Death REA SUSAN 1594/1903 JAMES - HONORAH - GLEBE

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/237399073

REA.— The Friends of Mr. T. JOYCE are respectfully
invited to attend the Funeral of his late dearly
loved sister-in-law, Mrs. Susan Rea; to leave 34 Franklyn-
street, Glebe, THIS AFTERNOON, at 1.30, for the Necro-
polis.

Now I'm lost. 2x deaths for a James and 2x for Norah/Honorah


Margaret and Susan are sisters but no Susan on the shipping record and there could be 2x Margaret and 2x James junior. Does not mean that the Margaret on shipping record married Thomas Joyce.
