References to Mannixes in Australia feed my curiosity about the sisters of my grandfather James Philip Mannix, born County Clare, Ireland, 1844, emigrated to the U.S. in 1866. My mother told me he had two sisters who emigrated directly or indirectly to San Francisco, CA, USA, where they met and married two men named Mannix who were not related to each other (and of course not to the sisters). The four then emigrated to Australia. Unfortunately I am woefully short on facts. I know none of the four names nor do I have dates.
