Patrick LAWLOR (jnr) born abt 1851 was my mothers, fathers, mothers, father. I have no idea when he came to australia how ever he was married to a Elizabeth Moore from Wales and they had their daughter here, in QLD.
Mary Elizabeth Lawlor born 1st Feb 1874 in Breakfast QLD she went on to marry a Henry O'Loughlin who also came from Ireland they had my mothers father also a henry O'Loughlin. Henry snr was in the Queensland Artillary and went on to serve in WW1.
I dont know much about more about Patrick LAWLOR his father was also Patrick Lawlor and was married to a Elisha Walsh from Lisdowney, Kilkenny, Ireland born about 1826.
I would like to know was Michael was another one of their children ie; the brother of patrick jnr.
I am still looking,
I just thought Patrick and Michael must have came at different times as my mothers fathers mother was born in QLD in 1874 and you said Michael came out in 1876?
They still could be related some how even with different parents and came out at different times, I dont not think Patrick snr and wife came to Australia.
I believe that three Lawlors who served in WW2 are related as they came from the same district in QLD as my relations. they are;
William Francis born 1913 Michael Joseph born 1910 Patrick Joseph born 1904
