Thomas RICE and Bridget Agnes TOUHY
« on: Thursday 17 November 11 08:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Have traced the children of this couple but cannot find the marriage as yet. One of their children Mary Rice was born in Ballarat East Victoria in 1869. After that Thomas is found in Orange in 1879 and later on in 1881 in Bourke NSW.
His family later moved to Mount Morgan Queensland around 1890 . 

I would appreciate any help in tracing Bridget's family, the spelling on QLD BDM is either Tuohy or Toohey.

Many thanks

Qld BMDs show Bridget's death, registered in 1924 with parent names.  Her marriage certificate gives her birthplace as Galway.  Not sure if you are trying to go backwards or forwards with Bridget.

1924/C808   
Bridget Agnes RICE, parents: Joseph Tuohy,   Anne McDermott

Death Registration for a Thomas Rice.

Thomas Rice
Died: 24th June 1890.
F: Michael Rice.
M: Margaret
Queensland, 1890/2556

Considering that there was an Intestacy application with the Brisbane Court in October 1890 for a Thomas Rice of Mt Morgan it is likely to be him.
