Faherty and Connolly family of Galway
I would appreciate any information about my GGrand mothers Faherty family. She was Mary Faherty 1842 Daughter of Peter Faherty(labourer) and Mary Gavin both from Galway. Mary 1842 Migrated to Australia at the age of 16.This is all I know about her family in Galway. also She married Festus Connolly in 1864 in Brisbane Qld Australia. Festus was born in Galway in 1826 and was tried and convicted of Cattle Stealing in Galway 1848 and Transported to Moreton Bay aboard the "Havering" in was the second last ship to transport Convicts to Australia.I have no idea what part of Galway they came From. Any information about the Faherty or Connolly family would be Appreciated. Regards Elaine
