In my last post http://blog.kyliesgenes.com/2017/04/mary-plunkett-read-carefully/, I wrote about my 2x great grandmother Mary Plunkett. The passenger list that I found is breaking down the brick wall which was Mary.
Things I have found:
- Mary’s siblings – Ann, Luke, James, Susan, Rose, Catherine, Christopher
- Mary’s parents – Thomas Plunkett and Ann Daly
- Family possibly from County Cavan, Ireland
- James Plunkett married Ann Jeffcott and moved to Albury, New South Wales, Australia
- Christopher Plunkett moved to Albury, New South Wales, Australia
- Ann Plunkett married Edward Jeffcott in Albury, New South Wales and moved to Victoria, Australia
- Mary’s two eldest sons James and Thomas Hayward spent time in Albury Gaol
- Susan and Rose married and stayed in South Australia
It’s so much fun taking down this wall brick by brick. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a breakthrough of this size in my own family tree.
