I too am looking for information on John Rahilly -- or Patrick Rahilly (Brothers) who came to Australia from County Cork Kerry, Ireland. (I am still trying to work out the dates they would have arrived in Australia. We are more certain that John made it, not so sure about Patrick. ) They were the brothers of my great-grandmother, Katherine Rahilly, who was born in 1899. Their parents were John Rahilly and Katherine Barton. We think Katherine Rahilly was the 2nd youngest of about 13 children. Katherine moved to the U.S. when she was about 17 and settled in Springfield Massachusetts, in the U.S. where most of my family still is today.
I was born in Springfield, but I am currently living in Sydney and my family and I are hoping to find some long lost relatives here in Australia (or in other countries too, of course.)
If anyone has any info, I would love to hear from you!
