Europe / Re: Daniel Romeo O'Sullivan born in France

Hi Joger Will go back and ask what else they have on Daniel R O'S.... The O'Sullivans married into my great grans half sisters family. DRS wife Mary is the Aunt of that insertion into my family. One of DRO's and Mary descendants asked if I could work out how they were related to my O'Sullivans that fortunately we were still in contact with.

Thank you. Looks like DIA are to get more money. The 1884 marriage is theirs. Mary died without a death cert and it is believed Daniel returned to Europe. The children were put into a Catholic orphanage.

Family verbal history says Daniel Romeo O'Sullivan was born in Lorraine Franch. Records from NZ indicate his birth year was 1854. I have read their records are good but am struggling to find where to look as they are regional. Help please.

Thanks Geoff. Has to be him. There can't have been many J.G's born at sea in 1820 who then went on to be sailors. Unassisted Passenger - so he made the move south. Ashburton would likely make it a Kiwi ship,  perhaps,  unless they were naming ships after Melbourne suburbs.
Well his death is not registered in NZ or the five states. Unless they had his age out by nine years  Gosh having the parents names for Ozzy records is so user friendly

Australia / Re: Owen Scahill Death recorded at Orange NSW

Hi the cycling Owen is his nephew. All three other brothers came out to NZ. My cuz is lucky in that there is only one Scahill in the berg they came from in the tithes apploments and that is an Edmund. Assumed son Owen had our mystery man Owen and named eldest son Edmund. While the 3 hits from 1909 to 1914 are not conclusive evidence, the fact that all three other brothers settled here lends weight to them.

Will ask my cuz about the cert when she gets back from Ireland where she is visiting her 2nd cousins if she wants to get it, as after all,  he is her relative. Maybe the rellies over there can throw some light on him.

Thanks Sue. I have not had that many relatives living historically in Australia and had been hoping the more experienced Ozzy hunters could help.
It just seems weird that in a five year period he turns up in NZ records 3 times then nadda till his death.
Technically Owen is a relative of a relative but the 3rd cousin I am corresponding with is a relative newbie and thought I would try and help out. Have now found two siblings of Owens they did not know about and at getting dangerously close to milking time last night/this morning found a wedding at our equivalent to TROVE that  included my 3rd cousins Mother and Aunt as brides maids and Edmund's daughters as  niece flower girls to a couple that neither of us had heard of. That and Edmund's wife having the same maiden surname as her Great grandmother who did marry a blood relative of mine.

Off topic again. Have found Edmund here in NZ. Variously under Edward, Schahill, Edmond and just rarely under Edmund Scahill.

Nothing to do with Owen but the "Will" of Patrick Scahill is his last letter home to Ned. So it is Edward that he recorded as his next of kin. In looking at him the other day b4 discounting him there is a nice picture of him at NZ's WW1 site

Just read his war record and Edward and Edmund are the same person. Medals went to Edmund and on one of the sheets Edmund of the same address has been written in in Red writing.

Thanks Sue. Pity about the lack of headstone. Implies no family. Funny that he enrolled in NZ to vote but not in Australia. Our National Library could come up with nothing except his arrival and electoral enrolment and hits for his nephew. To simply disappear from records for 45 years in the 20th century takes some doing.
