Looking for a William Coghlan

Looking for any information about a William Coghlan who was born abt 1838. He was born or lived in Kilkenny, Ireland before coming too Australia, we do not know what year, but we do know that in 1873 in Australia he had married a Jessie McFadyen, i do not know if he was sent here as a convict or not, or if he came over to Australia by himself. Any help would be greatfull.

I am researching Michael Patrick Coghlan who I believe emigrated to australia ~ 1870 and was ~ 13 years old. He married Annie Short in 1885. They named one of their sons William so the name may be a family name.
Your William Coghlan may be Michael's brother. If so we are researching the same line. Hope this rings a bell!

This is a long shot. I am looking for a Maria Coghlan b abt 1835 Ireland who emigrated to Australia before 1858, when she married Thomas Harvey in Victoria and lived in Yackandandah until her death in 1907. Could she be a sister to your William Coghlan of Kilkenny?
