Is that tree correct? Who is this? Age fits shipping record.

McCabe James 22 Oct 1867 48 son/Patrick & Margaret Goulburn Old NSW
McCabe Mary 15 Aug 1874 52 b. Co Cavan Ire; dau/Phillip & Ellen Goulburn Old NSW

An error with both dates in cemetery records.

If Mary did remarry then is this the death of an unmarried sister? Or the death of a daughter of Myles who was born NSW 1853?

Shipping record has Thomas an Ag lab. No second shipping reel so no parents names.

James was a farrier.

No births/baptisms in NSW from 1842 to 1855 for a Thomas & Mary McCabe.

There are births for only 4 children in NSW yet death notice for James has 9.

Re Margaret McCabe death 1882 – looks like Mary’s mother died in childbirth – so she could be granddaughter – ie daughter of James & Mary’s son Myles b 1853 and his wife Mary Ellen Smith.

James McCabe b 1819 Drung Ireland – parents Patrick McCabe 1786 Cavan – 21/11/1866 Goulburn & Margaret ? 1794 – 1859

Has his father arriving 6 Jan 1860 on “Alfred” and most of his siblings.

Mary had 2 with Thomas Bourke - BOURK
John Thomas 1870 & Helena 1872
 
Thanks Val.

If 9 is correct then no birth reg for 5 children. Also curious the shipping record has Thomas an Ag lab not James a farrier.

Reg for
Myles 1853
Patrick 1856
Bridget 1858 - my tree
Laurence J 1860

Makes no sense. If Margaret was a twin then there would be a reg with no 7198 or 7200. No twin registered.
