McGrath & Fitzgerald families
Looking for help with Bridget McGrath, daughter of John Fitzgerald & Bridget Hayes. Bridget was born c1832 & the only information I have is from her death certificate which says she was born Co.Limerick!!!She was 29 when she married William Joseph McGrath, son of James McGrath & Bridget Morgan. They were married in c1860/1861 also in Co.Limerick. Their first child was James b.1861. Sometime around 1862/1864 the family came to Australia but I have been unable to find them on the shipping records here in Australia. Both Bridget & William were of the Catholic faith.
Appreciate any hints/clues has to fiinding out more about the family before they left for Australia.
Many thanks
