|Board Name: Ireland Genealogy
||Nov 25, 2002
Born: Galway, Co. Galway, (1861 - 1865).
Son of Thomas and Bridget (nee Defly, Deftly). Thomas was a farmer.
William left Ireland with his brother (Patrick, we think) to Nova Scotia (year and for how long unknown).
They both then travelled down to Australia.
William married Sarah Ann Ryan, 25 December 1905 at Maryborough, Queensland.
The brother is meant to have stayed in Australia. William and Sarah came to New Zealand approximately 1907/08. They had four children Bridget, Honora, John (my father) and William.
William Snr was killed in a mining accident, 16 March 1916, Waikino, New Zealand.
Would appreciate any help.
