Our earliest Australian McGeehan is Edward Nicholas McGeehan who married Jane Jemima Hicks at Beechworth, 1858. His marriage certificate says born New York 18 Mar, 1832 to Edward McGeehan and Ellen Reid but we have failed to substantiate this. Family lore has E.N. working variously as clerk, miner and cooper & his father Edward as trained for priesthood but not ordained, then travelling to US, becoming Episcopalian and marrying Ellen. Any connections in US or Australia welcome.
