This is a long shot but I need to check out the possible lead. Found an obituary on the Co Tyrone Ireland website for an Alexander Gibney who died near Whittlesea June 4, 1872. It states he was a native of Co Tyrone and gives parents as Alexander Gibney and Jane Campbell.
Does anyone have any information about Alexander Gibney?
My great-great grandmother was Eliza Gibney of Co Tyrone. She and her family (Rutledge) emigrated to Canada and I have been unable to find any leads on her family. Her 2nd son was named Alexander (common to name 2nd son after mother's father) and family history has it that her mother (or grandmother) was a Campbell. The date of birth (1810) for Alexander would have been just 2 years prior to Eliza's. Possible he was a brother?
