I am from Melbourne Australia. Some of my names line up; possible connection; or not as the case may be..
I am trying to sort out two sets where the details are as follows:
The first group, parents and children, arrived in Australia in 1860 on the S Curling; don't know from where however.
John CarrollBorn 1800; died Melbourne 1871; Father Redmond (mother Mary nee Foley) Catherine CarrollBorn 1806; died Melbourne 1872; Nee Barnett (Father Daniel Barnett) Both are buried in Melbourne General Cemetery, Roman Catholic Compartment F Grave number 136.
The second group, parents and children,arrived in Australia in 1871 on the Star of India; don't know from where however. John CarrollBorn1836; Labourer; I expect to find that this John is the first son of the above John Carroll (no facts yet just circumstantial). Margaret Welsh/Walsh Born1839; died after 1880 Married Cork Ireland 1857
Children: HonoraBorn 1859;my Great Grandmother (certain of this). Buried in Melbourne General Cemetery, Roman Catholic Compartment F Grave number 136. MaryBorn 1862 Margaret Born 1865 JohnBorn 1867 Redmond Dead in 1880; on James Birth Certificate(born between 1868 and 1871). MichaelBorn 1873 Catherine Born 1875 Patrick James Born 1878 JamesBorn 1880; Address as Varian Street Collingwood.
Trusting that either the above is of some assistance to both of us.
