Looking for the family of CATHERINE (O') SULLIVAN. She claims to have been born in ENGLAND abt. 1810.

She is found in TASMANIA, AUSTRALIA marrying SAMUEL MAKIN b. bet 1790-1810 +/- England.
On this small island, 824 SULLIVAN are found living here. Out of the 824, 34 are named CATHERINE, BUT only about 10 don't show any marriage information or date of births.
Records show that she was not a prisoner, so she could have been the daughter to a settler or British soldier.
She married SAMUEL MAKIN in 1833 a tailor. Before 1838, they relocated to AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND and lived next door to a JAMES MAKIN.
ALSO LIVING NEAR THEM in AUCKLAND, NZ was an EDWARD SULLIVAN who was a shoemaker. Not sure if related.
