Looking for anyone with information about a Fahey family lived in either Kalgoorlie or East Coolgardie. I have a query from an American whose relative went there and is reported to have been a teacher, he died around 1935 to 1940. These Faheys would have originally come from Galway, Ireland.
I have found two Faheys, John died 1934 and Thomas died 1936, both died East Coolgardie. As no parents names are given on the Index, I can't proceed very far.
Also I am interested in John Fahey who married Margaret Torpey in Fremantle 1898. I believe this family stayed in Fremantle. Also interested as Torpey is a Galway surname.
I myself have a Fahy connection to Loughrea, Galway.
Thanks for your help.
