Hi Thomas, My great grandfather Thomas Killalea was born about 1841 in Galway.He married Julie Morris born about 1841 on 16.03.1874.There were 5 children - Patrick born 1874 Julia Catherine born 1876 John born 1878 Tonroe, Headford, Galway - my grandfather Bridget born 1880 Delia born 1883
Julia died in 1884 and on 03.02.1887 Thomas married Ellen Greally born 1860.There were another 5 children - Martin born 1888 Michael Joseph born 1889 Margaret born 1890 Thomas born 1891 Mary born 1893
Thomas died in about 1895.Ellen died in 1944 aged 84.
In the 1901 census I found Ellen Killalea, a widow and four of the children - from that I guess baby Thomas born in 1891 died young.Also found the same family in the 1911 census.
I am not sure when my grandfather John came out to New Zealand but I know Thomas and Delia arrived in 1901.Patrick followed in 1914.
Am hoping you may have some information.The registration district for the family was Tuam in Galwayl.
