couple of extras in case anyone still interested:
Mary Ann might have come to Australia on her own as Annie Reynolds on the Waipara: http://www.archives.qld.gov.au/Researchers/ImmigrationIndexes/Documents/Assisted-Immigrants-1848-1912-R.pdf leading to http://www.archives.qld.gov.au/Researchers/ImmigrationIndexes/Documents/Waipara_1911_Jan_to_1911_Jul_QSA_Item_18490.pdf
It's just a guess but is really the only one that seems to fit all the dates.
Also, Catherine Martin was fiesty! She took the mining company to court:

Almond Valley Heritage Trust: Museum Scottish Shale Oil Industry: e.g. court case re Edward Reynolds’s death: http://www.scottishshale.co.uk/KnowledgePages/Accidents/NewspaperRecords/News1890s.html#NewsAccidentEdwardReynolds1898
Also re my post in reply 41, I was meaning to quote from reply 8 rather than the one I did. I wanted to know if James was related to Edward and thus to me too.
I think Hugh Rafferty might have married Catherine's sister Margaret and become Edward's and Catherine's brother-in-law that way. I've also seen an idea that Margaret later remarried a Michael Kidd. I'm not sure of any of this yet. I know I'm slow.
Thanks again all.

Just going back over the old post - Hugh Rafferty did marry catherine's sister margaret martin and then later married michael kidd (in 1899) after hugh died in Aug 1897.

There is a Hugh Rafferty that married an Annie Reynolds in Aug 1890. I can't find a connection at this point to my reynolds/rafferty family. This particular hugh, his parents were Annie Donnelly and James Rafferty and Annie Reynolds parents were Mary Bell and James Reynolds.

Hugh Rafferty that married Margaret Martin - his parents were Patrick Rafferty and Elizabeth Cassidy.

Margaret Martin/Rafferty/Kidd died in Jan 1916 at Broxburn.

I can find all this information for other relatives but I can't find the necessary info for my direct ancestors.

Trying to find Edward Reynolds (1865-1896) parents - im guessing they were in Ireland and only Edward was in Scotland - Edward Reynolds and Agnes McGee.
Agnes was deceased at the time of Edwards marriage to Catherine Martin in 1888.

Sorry for the rambling. Just thought I would provide a little update.

Thanks :)

finally reviewed James O'Hara's parents: not Richard O'Hara and Margaret Halpen as I'd thought, but James O'Hara and Alice .....someone? from his marriage
Some of the American stuff is on family search too.

Hi People.
I've posted about this on http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=780618.0
See this for deciphering of James O'Hara's mother's surname and much more.
