Hi
Don't know whether I have posted before or not - before the computer crashed! - but would like to know more about great grandfather etc who came from County Armagh.

Robert Wesley Courtney , Great Grandfather, born 13 November 1842, Derryadd, Armagh. Parents: John Courtney & Ann McKee.  Married (1) Rebecca Greenaway, 8 December 1864, Portadown.  Rebecca died June 1865.  Robert then married (2) Sarah Todd, 27 February 1872, Drumcree, Church of Ireland, Parish of Drumcree, Lurgan, County Armagh.  Sarah was born Abt. 1846, Ireland and died 1893 Victoria, Australia.  Robert and Sarah had three known children John, Joseph and Robert.  Robert, Sarah and their three sons immigrated to Australia, 15 January 1881 arriving Melbourne, Victoria June 1881.

Would like to know more about Rebecca Greenaway and Sarah Todd.
