Gail the original passenger list of which I posted a snip, shows the couple to be from Galway.  Information in BISA is taken from many sources and compiled by the SA Genealogy many years ago.  Yes there are some inaccuracies and omissions but the internet wasn't around to simply search by the click of a mouse!!  Lots of hard work and all credit to those volunteers and submitters of family information.

I think you may have to take what information was available at that time.  The certificates in South Australia were pretty scant on information in that era.  More along the lines of the English ones. 

Where did you source the information that Thomas was born Beagh Kilmacduagh?  Did you find an obituary for him?

Cheers  :)

Hi  Cando,  you are right,   the work people have put in, doing the paper work would have been so hard  languages and pronunciation,  they did their best as you always do now😁😁😁😁 The BISA   had his age as 34yrs what year was that ?  As on the  passenger ship list he and Margeret were 21 .  My information I am sorry to say was from Ancetry 😓😓I know they  not always confirmed. It is pouring  rain here are you coping  with the heat there? Again I do appreciate  your time 😁😁😁😁😁Gail

Beautiful day here in north west Victoria after showers overnight. :)

Information from BISA clearly shows born 1834 Galway, Ireland however it does not shows the source.  Could be from the shipping lists or death information.  It also shows Margaret O'TOOLE born Galway but that could have been taken from the shipping list.  Unless you can find their births and marriages in parish records then that's it.
