Hi Angela

So far I have not found a Joseph in my tree but there is another lady I know who also has Finn's in her tree so will send her an e-mail to see if she has a Joseph.

Hi Dale

Thanks for reading my enquiry. I'm in contact with a lady named Lee who is searching for Finns as well - it's probably the same person!

Have a good day

Hi there Dale

It was great to hear from you. I think I had given up on the Finns - to be honest I have been working on many other branches of my tree.

Now the first thing is to see if our Joseph's are one and the same - the Joseph O Finn in my tree married Henrietta Harpur in 1888 in Wellington, NSW. They had the following children, according to the NSW BMD:

Ruth - born 1888, died 1888
Letisia - b. 1889
John O - b. 1892
Joseph Roland Harold - b. 1894, died 1976.
Jessie Macd - b. 1896
Reggie - b. 1898, died 1899
Patrick B - b. 1900
Maria G - b.1904
Jane C - b. 1906

There also appears to be a Doris who died in 1913. She could have been born after 1907 when the searchable entries end. Also a Gerald Stephen with parents Joseph and Henrietta died in 1977. All the children were registered in either Nyngan or Cobar with Jessie registered in Condobolin.

I am related to this family (in a round about way) through Henrietta Harpur, back through her mother Hanoria Harpur(nee SULLIVAN) and then back to her parents Cornelius Sullivan and Mary Farrell. Cornelius was a convict who came to Australia in 1820 aboard the "Hadlow".

Does this help at all? Do you think we are talking about the same person?

regards

Angela

Hello Dale,
I was reading your post to Angela about the Finn family.
I'm also researching the Finn name. I have a Dennis Finn jnr b.1857 d.1906 Cobar, NSW. Married to Sarah Burt in 1882 at Bourke, NSW. He is the son of Dennis snr and Annie Finn.
Sarah and Dennis had several children
Ada b.1882 d.1975 she is my G.Grandmother
Possible siblings are:
Dennis b.1886
John b.1888
Kathleen b.1890
Ernest Albon b.1892 d.1865
These siblings were all born at Nyngan
You said you had a lot on the Finns. I hope that your Finns and mind are connected. I would appreciate anything you could share with me.
I have a photo copy of Ada Finn's Baptism certificate she was Baptised in St.Brigids Church at Dubbo, NSW her sponsors were John and Jane Finn.
Thank you
Anne
