I know this obit for Elizabeth SHEA says her husband died "seven" years previously, however the only death that fits (that I can see) is the one above.
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article61643984

The article states she was married in north wales... Denis (son) was from or born in Wales... Mary from Ireland.. So maybe Denis, Elizabeth and his family came out together.

My Denis was born 1858 - so it might be.
These old records could be slightly wrong as I have found out in the past. Donnis became Dennis and then Denis.

So there could have been:
Denis
Michael
Elizabeth
James
Daniel
H Bellamy - female
T O'Malley - female

How do I verify this ?
I have had this before when looking for ancesters.. Everything matched up - except on boy was a twin and the twin was born 7 days different. Turns out there was a cousin who has the same name. That stuffed up a who branch of family tree..
