red mail Muldoon maybe McKenzie Family
Hi all Im looking for any information on Elizabeth Bridget Muldoon, born 1835 in Drum Killah or Drumhillah County Cavan, her parents are listed as Patrick Muldoon and Betty M. The story we have been told is that the family sailed to Australia but Elizabeths parents both died on the trip and she was taken in by another family, they settled in Carcoar NSW. Part of the story is when the family took her in she changed her surname to Muldoon from McKenzie although I cant verify any of that. Elizabeth married John Hoad in 1851 when she was 16 and its from these 2 my family has sprung. Apparently she sailed out to Australia on the John Knox aged 15, her parents are listed as deceased. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Hallo Seeking information as to Irish residence/birthplace/year of Thomas MCDERMOTT, father of James McDERMOTT who was possibly born in Cavan Town or Co Cavan about 1832.

They had a son James born in 1856 in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England, who later moved to South Shields, Durham (Northumbria) England. My chief interest is in Thomas as i hvequite a lot of info about the family thereafter. Thank you.
red mail reilly / riley/o'reilly
Looking for a John reilly, my great grandfather, c.1844..a bard, who was married to a margaret galvone? supposedly from scotland. As far as i know they were in cavan when their 1st 2 daughters were born They were listed as Irish and left from Portsmouth on the Camperdown in 1878 in the ships passenger lists. to Australia...Mothers name was listed as margart Kilrone/Kilroun on baptisimal certificates and places of birth were Coras point and Quarry Hile. ireland for the 2 girls. I thought with a strong brogue the name galvone and Kilrone could be the same sounding. .Anne was 1st born in 1873 and Eliza 1875. Once here they lived in Adelaide Sth Australia. Eliza left Australia as a young girl and went to America to live, so perhaps other relatives had gone there . Would love any info on any body's Reilly's who went to Australia, especially South Australia. The family story is that they eloped as Margarets father was a prebyterian minster and Johns family was Roman catholic. I am wondering if even Galvone wasn't her name at all, and they were covering their tracks but can only hope for some outside help, hopefully from here...Do not remember any stories of any family visits or letters from Ireland, Scotland etc, except from Eliza in New York...Thanks leonie

red mail Patrick MURRAY & Mary HOLLAND Cavan ca 1880s
I am looking for information about Patrick Murray born ca 1846 in Scotland & Mary Holland born ca 1854 in North America. They married ca ca 1877 - I do not know where. They lived in Cavan in the 1880s when Patrick was Instructor of Musketry in the Cavan Barracks; some of their children (Joseph 1883 sponsors Thomas Devine & Kate Masterson, John Thomas 1884 sponsors James Rahill & Mary Josephine Murray, Mary A 1885 sponsors Peter Rahill & Bridget Murphy who was proxy for Anne Holland, Bridget 1887 Charles & Bridget Dowd & Agnes 1888 sponsors Joseph & Mary Anne Keating) were born & baptised. No doubt some of these sponsors were family members. Other children were Annie 1878, who married Charles McGINTY, Vincent - I do not know where they were born, Kathleen 1890 & Mary 1894 both in Dublin. I understand that when Patrick retired from the army, he opened a buttery or creamery in Killeshandra or elsewhere in Cavan. On the 1911 Dublin census Patrick & Mary were living in Summerhill; they had had 11 children of whom 6 survived, so there are 2 of whom I know nothing. Any help gratefully received, many thanks.

red mail McCauley of Cavan
I'm seeking info. on Elizabeth McCauley of Cavan, don't know if one of the Cavan villages or the county of Cavan. She was a laborer in the fields/on a farm and emigrated to Boston in the latter/late 1800s. She had a twin sister who did not emigrate. In Massachusett she married a Thomas Callahan from Limerick. She gave birth in 1896, so this helps to fix a time frame. She was a Catholic, and I've been given the impression the family were tenant farmers. maybe her name was Mary Elizabeth and she used her middle name upon emigrating??
