Thanks Hallmark, I think the closest I'm going to get for the moment is Michael Donovan and Margaret Forde. Will need to confirm death for both. Thanks again.

Perhaps the second wife was a Miss Ffrench rather than from France.

May I offer the following newspaper cuttting, showing Jack DONOVAN was 38 years of age when he died in Sept 1910 in South Australia. I note he was described as an Englishman.

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/95241468 Port Pirie Recorder, 17 Sept 1910.

The only extra info we now is once deserting ship in Port Pirie Sth Australia about 1894 he married my g grandmother Elizabeth Ann Brooks 12 Feb 1895. He died 12 Sept 1910 aged 38. The oral history about parents being publicans and his father marring twice came from him. As far as we know he was not cathlic.

Martin,  please cite the newspaper, date etc where you read about his mother as Margaret McNamara...

Does any Donovan family researcher have on their tree a John or John Michael Donovan born about 1872 that they now nothing about.

We have one who was put into a monastery as a boy or young man to become a priest, but during his time there ran away and went to sea and ended up in Australia.

We know nothing of his parents or siblings except his mother died and his father possibly remarried a french woman ?.

Father was also a spirit dealer or publican.   
In addition to the above I have found his death notice in a local paper giving his parents names as Michael Donovan and Margaret McNamara if that's of any help to anyone.

I notice that Martin has been online  since my recent post but he has not responded.   The 1910 death was registered, but the online index does not give clues for names of his parents.

Are you now saying that you have not ever had the info you said you had in the following post:


......
In addition to the above I have found his death notice in a local paper giving his parents names as Michael Donovan and Margaret McNamara if that's of any help to anyone.

Re Margaret McNamara and the newspaper giving her as Jack's mum in 1910.

May I mention that a chap named Michael DONOVAN married in South Australia in 1879 to a Margaret McNamara.  The online index has the following info
1879   
119/930   
DONOVAN   Michael   
MCNAMARA Margaret   
(registered Adelaide District).

https://www.genealogysa.org.au/index.php?option=com_search&Itemid=32

There's births likely for that couple too :

 :) 1880   DONOVAN   Patrick
 :) 1881   DONOVAN   Mary Kate

On reading the images at Trove for the 1895 marriage,  I notice that there's no mention of Michael Donovan's locality ... this suggests to me that he was a local in Port Pirie ... many other notices on same pages list localities...  :)

https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/25750258
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/208835741
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/93973068
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/73212897


Perhaps you should consider asking for the thread to be moved to the Australia board, until you have confirmed information about Michael from some official records.
