red mail O'Brien (Brien)
My g'g'gr'father Thomas O'Brien was a farmer in Tipperary and married Margaret Pyne (Pine or Payne) - 3 known sons John (born Ballyporeen 1822 m Johannah Meagher (Maher) Came Aust c 1880 Died Gympie Qld Aust 1909 (7 ch); Dennis(Dinny) born Ballyporeen 1828 arrived Maryborough Qld 1858 (few years in Rockhampton) - m Anne St Ledger 1872 (4 ch incl my gr'father John William) died M'boro 1911; Maurice born Ballyporeen 1838 - came Aust with Dennis m Mary Heavey 1875 (11 or 12 ch)d M'boro 1893. It is possible that Thomas had a brother Michael who married Mary Hyland and had 10 ch - all listed as born Knocknagopple between 1826 & 1845, roughly same time frame as ch of Thomas & Margaret. 2 definite relatives of our family seem to match 2 of these children Michael b 1836 and Maurice b 1833. These both came to Aust. There is another branch through Alice O'Brien m Michael O'Donnell. Alice is possibly a sister or cousin of Thomas, definitely connected. Michael lived in a castle and lived to 100+ yrs. Their dau Catherine m Thomas Caplice who died young and Michael helped rear the g'children. I am visiting Ireland in June and am very keen to connect with any relatives or others in Ballyporeen who may know more of this family. I am also seeking others pursuing this family tree. Mary, Aust

red mail O'Brien family
I am looking for any information on James O'Brien and Lydia Ryan who married in Ballyporeen 22 2 1838. I think James O'Brien died there but the rest of the family settled around the south east area of Queensland, Australia. Their children were William, Thomas, Catherine,Bridget, Mary, Timothy, James. The family lived in Gympie for many years. I am particularly interested in information about the family in Ballyporeen.

My great grandmother came from Ballyporeen. She emigrated to New South Wales, Australia with her brother Denis and another sister. I believe her parents were Patrick and Catherine (Kate Clancy?)She married Owen O'Connell. I am starting our family tree and would love any information.
