Hi Terry
I have attached my line. See how it fits, but I am having real trouble looking anyone in Ireland
My G Grand Father Michael John Moloney/Maloney, from the information that I have appears to have been born 1839? and that he could not write or read, asall documents as marked with a "X". It appears from all the documents and paper clipping that I have that Michael John 1839 appears to have landed in Australia around 1860, as the first offical record that I have of him is, his marriage to Jane Anne Nelson born 1845 South Shields England. The Nelson family parents being Peter and Isabella, with Jane resided at Cressy near Geelong in Victoria Aust. On the marriage cert. name spelt MAloney, age given 29 and born Limerick. Michael and Jane have a daughter Isabella born 1875, before they move to the Carron area, which is a farming area near Donald, where the family still reside. Donald being about 180 miles north of Melbourne Victoria. Here they have a daughter Mary Catherine born 1879 and a son Michael John born 1881(My Grand Father see below). Jane passed away at Donald in June 1883 and she was returned to the Rokewood Cemetery, which is near Cressy and the burial ground for the people from Cressy. All Jane's family are buried there.
In 1884 Michael (1839) marries a Mary Grogan born 1842 Roscommon Co Connaught Ireland. They were married in Donald and no children were born. On this marriage cert. the name is spelt MOloney as it still is to-day and stated he was born in Tipperary. I do not know if this fits in with your
Michael (1839) parents being Michael and Catherine Moloney nee Ryan or Egan. On the first marriage certificate (to Jane Nelson) Michael's mother surname looks like Egan, but that could be the way the name was written.
My limited research into how he arrived here has a few possibilities, around 1860, 2 Michael MOloney's are recorded as "farmer's" on on the "Royal Character" arriving in 1859 with his age 21 years. The second "Empress of the Sea" 1861 aged 25 years Michael 1839 spent all his like as a famer.
My Grand Parents were Michael John born 1881 and Catherine Mary Moloney nee McGrath born 21/12/1884. They were married 1919 at Carron, which is near Donald Victoria Australia. Michael and Catherine had 3 children Catherine Mary born 24/08/1919 who married Colin McConville, My father Michael John Moloney born 21/01/1923 and James Dennis born 20/07/1927 single who died 13/09/1990

John Moloney
