Hi There, a little more info on Ellen Culhane, she died in Dunedin 25th August 1902 and is buried in Oamaru Cemetery. Death certificate states she lived in NZ for 25 years putting arrival date around 1877. Parent's names Mary Gurin and Mortimer Culhane listed on the Griffiths valuation of Ireland - Kilfergus - County Limerick as living in Glenagragara which was previously known as Ballygilltenane.
There has been a Culhane mailing list setup as follows:-
http://lists.rootsweb.com/index/surname/c/culhane.html

that might be of interest, as it seems all the Culhane's from this area are related. They are mainly looking at Culhane's who immigrated to Australia and New Zealand Regards Julie

Hi all

The ITM (free to look up) for Ellen's marriage in 1882 will show how long she had lived in the district (and therefore most likely in NZ) at the time of marriage.

I found this site by accident. My grandfather was Daniel Dominic O'Brien son of Ellen Corrigan-previously O'Brien nee Culhane.

I have some knowledge of the family history.

Hi Julie
I remember Margaret Kearns who was my mothers Aunt and have met other members ot the Kearns family from Oamaru.
My mother was one of the nine chidren of Daniel Dominic O'Brien.The family moved from Oamaru to Dunedin in the 1920s.
I maintain contact with several cousins on the O'Brien side of my family.
I have been interested in Ellen Corrigan who was obviously a resourceful woman to have migrated to NZ as a widow with a young family.
I live in the North Island NZ Palmerston North.
Regards
Bill Tither
