James Mccarron-Brooklyn New York to Australia 1899/1902
James McCarron was born in Brooklyn, New York on 4th July 1891. His parents were James McCarron and Kathleen (nee Higgs) McCarron.James McCarron Snr was a prison officer(governor/warder?)/sergeant of police(could have been both).We understand the family came to Australia, possibly between 1898 and 1905 where James McCarron Snr was to take up a role in the above job descriptions.We can find no record to authenticate this work position in Australia.
James McCarron Jnr married Eliza Amelia Wylie at Christ Church St Lawrence in Sydney on 29th September 1914.His occupation was "engineer".Their marriage certificate states that hismother Kathleen McCarron (Higgs) was deceased.We are of the opinion that James McCarron Snr and his wife returned to America from Australia sometime between 1905 and 1914.
James McCarron Jnr died in Sydney on 18th June 1949 aged 55.We have no shipping information on the arrival to or departure from Australia of the family.We would appreciate any information from any interested McCarrons or Higgs who might have a connection.Thanks
