Dear All,
Is there any kind person who would have access to births of the following people -

James McKenna born 1819 Donagh, County of Monahan. His parents were James McKenna and Sarah Cassidy.

Sarah McElmeel born 1817 Tyrone, Ireland. Her parents were Arthur McElmeel and Margaret Hacket.

James and Sarah were married in 1839 and by about 1841 were in Australia. It seems that Sarah arrived there prior to James as her death Cert says she spent 3 years in Tasmania before going to Victoria. (Maybe she was a convict and James followed her to Australia???)

I would be very interested to find out anything about either family as this is as far back I have been able to go.

Merry Xmas to you all
Gillie in Brisbane, Australia
