Ideas for Finding this Marriage
« on: Monday 28 September 20 07:41 BST (UK) »
Good evening,
Family legend has it that great grandmother's sister ? McDermott went to Australia, (either from New Zealand or County Clare, Ireland), and married ? Heneberry - a relation of Fred Heneberry the boxer.

As great grandmother married in New Zealand in 1866 I imagine her sister's marriage would be in the 1860's or 1870's.

I do not know in which state this marriage took place.

Do you have any hints for looking, other than slowly trawling through each state's records?

Thank you
Jean Price

What were the given names of your great grandmother's parents?

It certainly is. Cannot be the same generation surely?

Yes, I think James might belong to that family too. But can't see his birth registration

Meanwhile I think this is Sarah Ann's death - modified to comment, notice another sister married a Henneberry
