When I didn't find the birth as Devir in NSW index I thought perhaps born Ireland.

John Devir married Bridget O’Donnell 17 Feb 1878

So far I can't find that marriage.

I also can't find John's death.


So mother as Ellen is an error ? And middle name Patrick is also an error for J P's father.

Marriage and death not found gibbo.

I checked Ireland and didn't find the marriage.

I have the Burcham deaths.

Death 8241/1925 BURCHAM JANE B - ALLAN - MARY - KOGARAH * 16 May

Woronora site down.

Death 13082/1936 BURCHAM WILLIAM - WILLIAM - EMMA - ROCKDALE * 1 Aug
 
Don't know if Margaret M is a sister.

This can't fit that birth.

Marriage 1860/1900 SCHNEIDER FREDERICK W - BURCHAM MARGARET M - NYNGAN


Death BURCHAM MARGARET MABEL 12460/1956 WILLIAM - JANE - ROCKDALE

Location fits.

Did John remarry?

5617/1887 DEVER JOHN - FEENAN MARY - EAST MAITLAND

6514/1893 DEVER JOHN - DOWNES ALICE - SINGLETON

No death as Dever with parents who fit.

The Dever families in Hunter area are probably not connected.

If John was born Ireland abt 1855 he arrived married or not but I can't find his arrival.

If Bridget married in NSW then ...

??
Bridget O'DONNELL 2 Forest Monarch 1858 Sydney and/or Newcastle Reel 2138, [4/4795]; Reel 2477, [4/4974] * dv

Bridget O'DONNELL 1 Lady Elma Bruce 1859 Sydney and/or Newcastle Reel 2139, [4/4795]; Reel 2479, [4/4979] * Francis & Catherine from Donegal

I've searched Trove for 'devir' AND 'o'donnell' and no hits that help. Several possible deaths for Francis and Catherine in NSW index.

Thanks gibbo.

I had not seen that before.

Says Bridget's father was James.

The marriage was in Ireland so arrival as Devir/Dever/Devar/ 1878 - 1881.
