I am a decedent of William Bannon (Snr) and his eldest child Sarah who was born 18/9/1858 in Horton before the family moved to Sassafras. Sarah Bannon married John Hancox 7/6/1882 in the Church of St. Patrick, Port Sorell and had 10 children, the youngest of which was my grandmother.
I am currently collecting information in regards the life of William (from Ballymahon, Co. Longford/Westmeath) to compile his biography. Any information you may have would be appreciated.
I may be able to supply you with some of the information you need in regard to William’s life and Sarah's family. Unfortunately I have only scant details without references of Richard Bannon’s family.
