My curiosity is what happened to infant Sarah? Thomas Duggan (variant)married in 1857 as a widower (my ancestor). He had two sons. No mention anywhere about little Sarah. When I accidentally saw David McAdam traveled to Adelaide I thought perhaps he raised Sarah. But, names of his children do not fit, nor any birth dates. So that thought of mine is "hil."
I am going to search the Ship for other infants, as a mother of same would more likely take the (still nursing) infant.
Of course, I realize that Sarah could have died shortly upon arrival at Port Adelaide.
The Ships List showing father as James is incorrect and possibly a misinterpretation by person transcribing from deteriorating old, old records. I found a marriage record for a Thomas Dougan and Olivia McAdam in Ireland which is a possible fit in my family history.
Thanks again for your help.
