Hello Veronica, We definately have the same ancestor. Marriage cert of John and Mary Mahoney, John's age given 26 on 23 Jul 1878. M/cert John and Kate M on 1 Sept 1886 John was 29& Kate 24. Birth cert of Daniel K, John was 45 on 30Dec 1901. John definately came out on Sepia 18 Jun 1875, he was stated as 21. Information from Dawn Murphy (daughter of Michael Mullins, kate's brother) is Kate definately came out with Father Michael, Mother Mary and Brother Michael, suposedly landed at Townsville. we may have to go to Qld Archives to check on this, hopefully did not arive in NSW. Dawn said they stayed in Family Home Hotel opposite the Townsville Railway Station. A lot of Kate M's and some Michaels have arrived in Qld. Kate M was known as Catherine in Joan's family and Joan's middle name is Catherine after Kate. Kate was called Catherine on her gravestone. We have notations from Qld Birth & marriages says she was Katherine Theresa Mullins, also from Charters Towers cemetry. also have photos of gravestones. John's stone lists his children. Also have the charcole photo of John and Catherine (Joan always calls her this).
