Yes it sounds terrible (one article mentioned a step-son of his)

James Maurice McMAHON.

A divorce http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article122580889   (sounds frightening!)

This has death year as 1964 and I notice you mention his death as 1954 - was this a typo?
From NSW BDM
death 1964 James Maurice McMAHON, father Patrick, mother Mary Jane at Blayney reg 27130/1964

I can photograph divorce and probate at next visit (and/or following visit - depends how many we find  :) )

Trying to look for Mary Jane

mary jane andrews born 12th july 1863 breconshire wales, died 1939, maitland nsw,mary jane co uld have been o'conner or   o'connor

Was her birth surname Andrews?  And her married name was McMahon?  The O'Connor surname - did she marry after Patrick's death?

Mary Jane's records from NSW BMD - you may already have these
http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/Pages/family-history/family-history.aspx

Marriage - Patrick listed as MACMAHON, Mary's initial shown as "I"

1880 #3779, registered at Maitland
Patrick MACMAHON, Mary I O'CONNOR

Some of the children are registered as MACMAHON, for example Mildred has two entries on the Birth index, one MacMahon, one McMahon (same reg number)

Later marriage:
1902 #7447 registered at Paterson 
Frederick ANDREWS, Mary J MCMAHON; another index entry with same number gives surname as MACMAHON

Death
1939 # 28187, registered at West Maitland
Mary June ANDREWS, Parents: James, Rosanna

Death Notice, 19 December, 1939 for Mary Jane ANDREWS (of Hilldale), wife of Frederick ANDREWS, to Catholic cemetery, Campbell's Hill. (Maitland)
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/135450811

austcemindex has a photo of her grave:
http://austcemindex.com/inscription?id=1382167#images

I'm not seeing her before the 1880 Marriage; cannot locate a birth for her in Breconshire in 1863.  Could she have been married previously, although the headstone says nee O'Connor so it seems unlikely.
