Margaret Morrissey, Clonmel, County Tipperary

Good evening all,
I have spent countless hours searching for Margaret Morrissey on the Net. Here is what I know.....she was born c1795 at Clonmel, Tipperary. She married Thomas Steel in Ireland, supposedly c1816, and sailed to Australia on the 'Baring' in 1819 with her 2 year old daughter, Jane. They were meeting up with Margarets husband, Thomas, in Australia - he was in the 48th Regiment of foot. Margaret died in Newtown, NSW in 1858.

Okay, I have found marriages for a Margaret Morrissey on the site Ralph Connor has suggested but they are for 1809,1819 and 1821 - none of which seem to fit.

Here is what I would like to know.....where and when was she born? where and when did she marry? Did she have any other children besides Jane? I have her father listed as James Morrissey - is this correct? Who was Margaret's mother? Are any other ancestors known?

I know I'm asking a lot but if there is anyone out there that can help me, I'd truly truly appreciate it.

Eyes are burning, cant search the Web any more.
