James Atkinson b 14 April 1819 Terryglass Tipperary – parents James Atkinson (1780-1850) & Sarah Abbott (1781-1877) – he died 25 Dec 1895 Nt Yacka SA

Married 30 Nov 1850 Nenagh Ireland to Charlotte Dagg (1831-1916) – arrived 5 April 1851 Port Adelaide on ship “Osceola” with his family
In April of 1851, just five months after their father’s murder, John, James and Maria, the sons and daughter of Sarah and the late James, together with their children, boarded the ship Asceola and sailed from Plymouth to Adelaide never to return. Both John and James tried their luck, with some success, in the Victorian goldfields. James bought land at Strathalbyn, an area southeast of Adelaide. John moved to Moonata a copper mining area to the north west of Adelaide. All prospered greatly in their adopted country. Thomas remained in Ireland to finish out his year’s teaching and to settle up the family’s affairs before sailing with his wife Eliza and their four children from Southampton on the SS Kingston, arriving eventually at Hobart Tasmania. He finally settled in the township of Burnie and managed lands for a while for Captain Stoney, a brother of the Rev Ralph Stoney of Ashgrove Terryglass. The farmlands they eventually purchased and settled on at Burnie had a home named Ashgrove. Maria is believed to have met her future husband Samuel McLean on board the Asceola they married in 1853 and settled in Melbourne.
Thanks Val.

Yes, that's the obit for James.
