Hi.This is the bit extra I have on Margaret -mainly, her children's names to see if any are familiar to you.It would be great to find a tie-up.
Margaret Honora JOYCE b 1829 Fermoy, Co Cork, Ireland.A brother called Bart, their father Bartholomew JOYCE, their mother Joanna CORCORAN.I don't know of any other children.I think there is a mention in a letter that the brother Bart came to NZ with James MOONEY and his brother Edmond MOONEY.
Married 1May1849 St Marys Cathedral, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada to James Samuel MOONEY (b 4Oct1826 Halifax to James MOONEY/Sarah ROBINSON).They moved to Australia then New Zealand following the goldfields.The children grew up in NZ, most remaining there and having families.At least one (Edmund B) returned to Canada/USA and married Annie POYNTZ from Massachusetts.
