Johanna Mary O'Callaghan is my great-grandmother was born in March of 1840 at Crookstown, County Cork, Ireland and immigrated to Australia landing in Brisbane in 1862 on November 2 on board the Prince Consort.She married Denis Connolly in 1866 on January 20.Her death occurred in 1922 on May 9.
Her sister is Catherine Margaret O'Callaghan was born in 1838 on January 28 at Kilmurry, County Cork, Ireland and immigrated to Australia.I am not sure if the two sisters landed in Australia from the same ship or not.Catherine Margaret married Arthur John O'Leary 1871 on October 17 at Toowoomba, Queensland at St Patrick Church.Her death occurred in 1915 on December 19.
The sisters had two brothers, James and Patrick.I learned that Patrick had been a land commissioner in Dalby.
Their parents were James O'Callaghan and Catherine Taylor.
I would appreciate any information that anyone has on this branch of the O'Callaghan Family including more about the brothers and the parents.
