Patrick O'Flaherty - Connection with Boardman Family?
Seeking a connection between a Patrick O'FLAHERTY who died in Madras, India in 1886, aged 28 years. My ancestor Maria MULLIN married a Henry BOARDMAN and they settled at Smythes Creek near Ballaarat, Victoria, Australia. After he died Maria came to Melbourne and in 1886 was living in Carlton, Melbourne. There she placed an advertisement in a Melbourne newspaper about the death, stating Patrick was a nephew of Maria. I believe this connection was on the BOARDMAN side. Any information much appreciated. Thanks, Rob
